    Arabic Course for English Speaking Students: Vol 1


    A comprehensive and popular course for the teaching of the Qur’anic and Traditional Arabic, originally devised and taught at the renowned Madinah Islamic University, catering for the non-Arabic speaking students from all over the world.

    Over the years, this course has enabled students to become competent in their use of the Arabic language and to participate and benefit from scholarly pursuits such as Qur’anic exegeses, hadith, fiqh, sirah, history, and classical and modern Arabic literature.

    Learning classical Arabic effectively could not be more easier than this course of Madinah Islamic University. A tried and tested course over 40 years with a proven track record of success, it is ideal in terms of the topics covered and short time taken to learn. It is suitable for schools and colleges in the UK and other Western English speaking countries.

    Whilst there are now several courses available on the market for the teaching of the Arabic language, the unique features of this particular one are:

    It is very concise, consisting of only three books, all of which are short but extensive in their coverage.

    It combines modern Arabic vocabulary with Islamic terminology as used in the Qur’an and Sunnah.

    It covers all the essential Arabic grammatical rules in such a way that the student is spared the monotonous task of memorising them.

    The author presents Arabic as a living and vibrant language and takes examples from Arabic in everyday use, as also from the Qur’an and Sunnah, so that as the student learns the languages, he also acquires an understanding of hundreds of Qur’anic verses, ahadith, Arabic parables and poetry. This allows the student to become directly involved in the study of the Qu’ran and Sunnah while also acquiring a sound understanding of the Arabic language.
