    If you argue with archaic spelling, then and are English letters.


    According to "Grammatik des klassischen Arabisch" by Wolfdietrich Fischer,
    page 9, the "ya" is written two dots in such cases, too.

    I doubt such questions can be solved with reference to the Quran,
    which originally had no dots at all.
