    • 609–632 CE, Qur'an, 5:32:
      مِنْ أَجْلِ ذَٰلِكَ كَتَبْنَا عَلَى بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ أَنَّهُ مَن قَتَلَ نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا وَمَنْ أَحْيَاهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا
      min ʔajli ḏālika katabnā ʕalā banī ʔisrāʔīla ʔannahu man qatala nafsan bi-ḡayri nafsin ʔaw fasādin fi l-ʔarḍi fa-ka-ʔannamā qatala n-nāsa jamīʕan wa-man ʔaḥyāhā fa-ka-ʔannamā ʔaḥyā n-nāsa jamīʕan
      Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors.

1. ⁧هُمْ(hum) becomes ⁧هُمُ(humu) before the definite article ⁧الـ(al--).
2. Specifically, ⁧ـنِي(-nī, me) is attached to verbs, but ⁧ـِي() or ⁧ـيَ(-ya, my) is attached to nouns. In the latter case, ⁧ـيَ(-ya) is attached to nouns whose construct state ends in a long vowel or diphthong (e.g. in the sound masculine plural and the dual), while ⁧ـِي() is attached to nouns whose construct state ends in a short vowel, in which case that vowel is elided (e.g. in the sound feminine plural, as well as the singular and broken plural of most nouns). Furthermore, of the masculine sound plural is assimilated to before ⁧ـيَ(-ya) (presumably, -aw of masculine defective -an plurals is similarly assimilated to -ay). Prepositions use ⁧ـِي() or ⁧ـيَ(-ya), even though in this case it has the meaning of “me” rather than “my”. The sisters of inna can use either form (e.g. ⁧إِنَّنِي(ʔinnanī) or ⁧إِنِّي(ʔinnī)).
3. ⁧ـهِـ(-hi-) occurs after -i, , or -ay, and ⁧ـهُـ(-hu-) elsewhere (after -a, , -u, , -aw).
