This ARABIC LANGUAGE COURSE for English-Speaking students is a comprehensive and popular course for the teaching of Qur’anic and Traditional Arabic. Originally devised and taught at the world 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 tafseer of the Qur’an, hadith, fiqh, sirah, history and classical and modern Aranic literature.
The course is concise (consisting of three parts) but extensive in its coverage. (A further part is also available for students wishing to continue). It combines modern Arabic vocabulary with Islamic terminology used in the Qur’an and Sunnah. It helps acquire an understanding of hundreds of Qur’anic verses, ahadith, Arabic parables and poetry.
The course was devised by Dr V Abdur Rahim and taught by Asif Meherali. Dr V Abdur Rahim obtained his doctorate in the Arabic language from Al Azhar University and has taught it for more than four decades. He was, for a long time, a principal lecturer of Arabic language to foreign students at Madinah Islamic University. He has combined the modern way of learning with the classical system, and applied the same style in this course in a living and vibrant language taking examples from Arabic in everyday use, and also from the Qur’an and ahadith. Dr V Abdur Rahim is currently the director at the translation centre of the King Fahd Qur’an Printing Complex in Madinah Munawarrah.
