Start of my endless questions series 1. 2.

1. Why is ain alif used at the start of 'a'ila, immediate family? Why not alif with hamza on top? Surely they sound the same? Is it because it is a more ancient word? Or because it is a less ancient word?


2. Which words apart from herdha and allah have unusual markings? Again, is it because they are the most ancient words?

I will add the Arabic when I am at my laptop.
