Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu.

I pray this reaches you in the best of conditions. Aameen.

Alhamdulillahi Rabbil 'alameen, we are glad to announce the launch of ARB 032: Introduction to Qur'anic Arabic - Level 2.

This course series focuses on teaching Essential Qur’ānic Arabic grammar alongside high-yield vocabulary from the Qur’ān.  Thus, this course is different from most Arabic courses since it focuses primarily on Qur’ānic Arabic, and teaches grammar through the Qur’ān.  And also for that reason, there is little focus on conversational Arabic.  The goal of reading comprehension of the Qur’ān (and ultimately listening comprehension) overshadows everything else relative to learning Arabic.  Altogether, there is a step-wise progression in teaching the student the fundamental aspects of Qur’ānic Grammar alongside Qur’ānic Vocabulary.  Each lesson comes with several examples directly taken from the Qur’ān.  Furthermore, at the end of each chapter, there are questions testing the student’s mastery of the material, most derived directly from the Qur’ān.

     The prerequisite to this Level 2 Course was ARB031 which focused on teaching the grammar of Arabic words, word constructions, and Nominal (non-verbal) sentences.  This Level 2 Course focuses on Verbs and Verbal Sentences.  Altogether, the student who completes Introduction to Qur’ānic Arabic, Levels 1, 2, and 3 successfully should Insha Allah gain the ability of basic Qur’ānic reading comprehension (with the help of a Dictionary).  Furthermore, the student should also be able to translate Hadith and Classical Arabic literature at a basic level.  The Level 3 Course focuses primarily on the higher Verb families   [الفعل الثلاثي المزيد فيه].  We anticipate developing an Intermediate course following this course series insha Allah.

May Allah make your affairs easy for you. Aameen.

BarakAllahu feekum.
