Learning Qur'anic Arabic
Bismillah... In the name of the Most Merciful
Alhamdulillahi Rabbil Aalameen. All praise to Allah subhana wa ta’ala, this week I am going to start an online course to learn Qur’anic Arabic inshAllah. I am really looking forward to the course. I have always wanted to learn Arabic so that I can really appreciate the Qur'an but the courses were not really suitable for me. Being a busy mother of three children ranging from 20 months to 5 years, also makes it quite hard to attend any course. But Alhamdulillah when we intend something good, Allah subhana wa ta’ala makes it easy for us to fulfil our dreams. I hope I can really learn a lot inshAllah from the course. I hope this Ramadan I will be able to understand at least some bits of the Qur’an without the English translation. MashAllah the teacher seems really good. May Allah subhana wa ta’ala reward her for starting the course. You can find more about course at Arabic Gems.
InshAllah we will be following Professor Alan Jones’s Arabic through the Qur’an. Aside from being the very latest Arabic grammar written by an academic, one of the special features of the book is its exclusive use in its vocabulary of Qur’anic rather than modern Arabic. I am not that interested to learn the modern Arabic. Learning the Qur'anic Arabic is my priority inshAllah.
I hope to blog on a regular basis to keep a journal of my progress bi’idnillah and also share my experience with you all inshAllah. May Allah subhana wa ta’ala bless each student on the course with tawfique (ability) and tayseer (easiness) to learn the Qur’anic Arabic, ameen!
