You may have noticed the tick (‘) in some places, it is the equivalent of a soundless “a” or a brief stop, which is the closest sound to a letter which only exist in Arabic.
The “th” is sometimes pronounced as “th of that” and sometimes as “th of think”, I usually state how you should pronounce it.
In Arabic there are two types of "h", the sharp “h” and the regular "h", the sharp one is hard to pronounce for many foreigner however a person can be understood even the sharp "h" is pronounced as a regular "h".
