The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

The waṣla (Arabic: ‏وَصْلَة‎, lit. 'an instance of connection') or hamzatu l-waṣli (هَمْزَةُ ٱلْوَصْلِ, 'hamza of connection') is an Arabic diacritic resembling part of the letter ṣād (ص) that is sometimes placed over the letter ʾalif at the beginning of the word (ٱ). The ʾalif with waṣla over it is called the ʾalifu l-waṣli (أَلِفُ ٱلْوَصْلِ, 'aleph of connection'). It indicates that the alif is not pronounced as a glottal stop (written with the letter or diacritic hamza ء), but that the word is connected to the previous word (like liaison in French). Outside of vocalised texts, the waṣla is usually not written.
