noun 
  1. One of fourteen Arabic letters that cause the "L" of a preceding definite article to be assimilated. Actually, the sun letter suppresses the sound of the "L" and then geminates: al + sin = as-sin. The effect of the sun letter is limited to pronunciation and does not change the spelling: (ARchar, اÙصÙÙ). The fourteen sun letters are:
::(ARchar, ت) , (ARchar, Ø«) , (ARchar, د) , (ARchar, Ø°) , (ARchar, ر) , (ARchar, ز) , (ARchar, س) , (ARchar, Ø´) , (ARchar, ص) , (ARchar, ض) , (ARchar, Ø·) , (ARchar, ظ) , (ARchar, Ù) , (ARchar, Ù) :The rest of the letters are moon letters, which do not affect the pronunciation of the definite article.
