English has sentences that are noted for having each letter of the alphabet at least once such as "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog".

Are there similar sentences in Arabic? I know someone who is learning arabic and want to find a sentence containing all of the letters in the arabic alphabet.

This page (http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/Holoalphabetic%20sentence) offers some sentences for other languages and alphabets, but not Arabic. It might offer you search terms, though: pangram and holoalphabetic, that describe the concept. They didn't help me, though, get any farther.

I went on an Arabic site to ask if anyone can help here, but they would allow me to post replies, but not do new posts.

Still working on the problem.

A salaam a-laycum.

Why not try this Arabic site yourself?

But don't get bogged down in any of the arguments!
