    The ج in the first tweet sounds way closer to the " ya " sound than to the G sound. This phenomenon is quite common in Eastern Arabia and few parts of SW saudi.

    So are these 6 more old Arabic inscriptions by Foreman:


    F was pronounced as P while J was pronounced as G back then which G was indeed an archaic sound in old Arabic which was eventually got evolved into P in many Arabic dialects though some kept the sound in certain Arabic dialects today.
