    We have "اكتب" & "أعلم"

    which means : write & I know

    you can notice that one of they contain "hamza" in the beginning. It's "أعلم"

    the letter "ا" without "hamza" like the letter "e" in word "the"
    the letter "ا" within "hamza" like the letter "a" in word "a voice"

    They are really hard to explain.
