    U+0610 through U+0613 are symbols used to abbreviate pious
    phrases. "may God's peace and blessing be upon him"
    is the English translation of the Arabic phrase symbolized
    by U+0610, given in roman form as "sallalahu alayhe wasallam".

    Incidentally, in Urdu at least there some additional pious
    phrase abbreviations of this type. Does anyone know if there
    is a proposal for encoding them?
