When categorizing the alphabet into 1, 2, and 4 formed letters, we didn't mention ء. Does it fall into one of these categories? If so, which? If not, why?

Ok, Aasiyah. It's quite interesting that you chose that category. Can you give me examples from the mus-haf illustrating these four forms?

When categorizing the letter forms, we generally approach it from the angle of how much the letter has changed depending on it's position. Not necessarily the position itself. To further clarify, the letter ب looks like this بلد in the beginning of a word and its middle. It is only at the end of the word that the letter itself changes to this shape قلب. Similarly, hamzah may be positioned on top of a letter or under the letter, in the middle of a word, or at its end however does the shape itself change?

No, hamzah does not change it's shape at all. It is always seen as ء.

Correct, jazaakillaahu khairan. Can you give an example of Hamza at the beginning of a word and middle or end of the word to further illustrate your point? Also, in this case, would you categorize it as a letter with 1, 2, or 4 forms?
