Updated: Feb 17, 2021

Numbers in Arabic language can be a very confusing topic, even for native speakers. There are two reasons. One, mainly different group numbers are governed by different rules, which can sound intimidating at first, especially that in English and other languages it's straight forward, but in Arabic grammar, numbers requires some extra effort and studying. So be prepared! The second reason, is that most native people avoid using these stringent grammatical rules for numbers in real life and use them in their local dialects; in a much simpler format. They also rely a lot on English numbers in writing.
