Here’s an elegant solution to typing ï·² (fdfa fdf4 fdf2 characters) in a MS word or any MS Office documents.

To type ï·² in MS Word or any MS office Document:

(1) Type FDF2.

(2) Type ‘Alt+x’. (Hold on to ‘Alt’ key and press ‘x’ key.) As soon as you type ‘Alt+x”, ‘FDF2’ is converted to ï·²

Unicode for ‘ï·²’ is ‘FDF2’.

Below table gives Unicode Values of common Arabic Words/Phrases:

Arabic Phrase/Word English Transliteration Unicode
ï·² Allah FDF2
ï·º Sall Allahu alay-hi wa-sallam FDFA


Mohammed FDF4
ï·³ Akbar FDF3
ï·¶ Rasool FDF6
ï·º Jallajalaalahu FDFB
ï·¹ Salla FDF9
ï·¸ Wa-salam FDF8
ï·· Alayhe FDF7
ï·µ Salam FDF5
ï·± Qala FDF1
ï·° Salla FDF0


For example, if you want to type ï·², then

(1) Type ‘FDF2’.

(2) Type ‘Alt + x’ (Hold on to ‘Alt’ key and press ‘x’ key). MS Word or any Office document will then convert FDF2 to ï·².
