1.Colour Families

The Abjad Letters overcome the conceptual hurdle of complexity outlined by Challenge1 above by establishing an easily comprehensible scheme of classification through which the letters are grouped according to essential similarities. Based on their orthographic formation, the 28 letters of the alphabet are categorized into seven “families”, clearly differentiated by the colours of the rainbow:

 

Red letters: The letter "Ha" is unique among the letters in its complexity and variety of forms. In the Abjad system, she is the “queen” of all the letters. 
Orange letters: Like the indigo letters, these letters have no “tails”, but unlike the indigo letters, they have "hands" to help them hold onto other letters. 
Yellow letters: These letters join to following letters and each has a unique “tail” when found at the end of a word.
Green letters: These letters join to following letters and have horizontal “tails”.
Blue letters: These letters join to following letters and have deeply curved, backward pointing “tails”.
Indigo letters: These letters can not join to following letters since they do not have "hands"..
Violet letters: These letters join to following letters and have deeply curved, upward pointing “tails”.

The Abjad system encapsulates the Colour Family scheme outlined above in the Letter Pyramid, a diagram consisting of the seven layers of letters organized by increasing group size. Each row presents its letters in traditional alphabetical order:

 

Letters with hands can hold a following letter, or a 'tail' when at the end of a word.
The letters are grouped into seven groups. Each group is represented by a rainbow colour. of the rainbow.
