Question:

If arma, agua and alma are feminine nouns, why do we use "el" (a masculine article) before them?

Answer:

To make the long story short it's mostly to avoid cacophony, which is the unpleasant repetition of a sound), that "la agua" or "la alma" would cause. Even though, in plural we can use the feminine plural article "Las": las aguas, Las águilas; and we can also use de feminine singular article if we have an adjective before the noun that doesn't start with an "a": la peligrosa arma.
