The language of the Qur’an… language of the Beloved (saw).

We are pleased to provide this opportunity to study the Arabic language from beginner’s level. While based primarily upon Qur’anic vocabulary, grammar and selections. Our teachers employ diverse and modern techniques to make the learning experience effective and enjoyable.

The course presently has two levels, each lasting one year.

Students are introduced to core Arabic language concepts, with study of the vocabulary and grammar of the Qur’an, based on the MELS textbook: “Access to Qur’anic Arabic” by Abdul Wahid Hamid.

The main focus will be on reading/writing. In this way, their abilities will expand beyond simple recitation of the quran but an enhanced understanding of the book of Allah (swt).
