For several arab language courses input of standalone intial-, middle or end characters are needed.


The keyboards usually do not support this kind of characters in standalone mode, that is for example an ا (Alif) is only available in its stand alone form if it is not written and connected with other letters in a word. Usually typing words in Arab leads to automatic combining the letters allining their format regarding on their position in a word (initial form, middle form, end form). 

As I do not know how to overcome this issue, please edit this article giving the solution.
