Salaam ‘Alaykum wa Rahmatullah!

Peace be with you,

In order to help you all be true students of the Arabic Language, I have written a few recommendations here to help you get started on my lessons:

1. You should get a notebook! Devote it entirely to Arabic and make sure you take notes from the videos. An alternative is to use a word processor like Microsoft Word, but you’ll have to know how to type Arabic to use it effectively.

2. Practice writing. If you’re already familiar with the alphabet and how to read the language, then pick up a pen and write. Writing Arabic is an art in an of itself and can be extremely enjoyable once studied and practiced in depth. One good way to practice connecting the letters is to simply obtain a text in Arabic and copy it. I wouldn’t start with the Quran itself as the text in there is written slightly differently then what is normal. One good text to start with is “Stories of the Prophets for children” here: http://tmr123.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/man-kasara-al-asnaam-v2.pdf

3. Discipline. Set out time throughout your week just for the study of Arabic. Each of my videos will come with supplementary material for you to read and research as you are able. So make as much time as you can and stay committed! The hardest part is not the language- but our own patience with it! A great saying of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was: “The best of deeds are those that are continuous, even if they are small.”

4. Got dictionary? I prefer using digital versions of dictionaries whenever I can because I find it faster. But in some cases, nothing beats having the physical version. See the “books” page from the menu above for more information.

5. Subscribe from the top right to make sure you are notified the SECOND a new video comes out!

6. Exercises. No not the physical kind. Below each video there should be a link to exercises. These are extremely important to ensure that you have understood the video properly. It is HIGHLY recommended you complete them and ask any questions you may have. Adam as well as our Arabic Coaches and fellow students will be happy to help you as soon as possible. Note: the exercises are being worked on as we speak, – check the facebook page for updates as they come along.

7. Begin with lesson 1.

    Assalam oalaikum, Sheikh Adam. I am new to Arabic in that I have never written or understood the language except from written translations. Unfortunately these are often difficult to understand. I thank you for giving me and countless others this opportunity to learn the beautiful language of The Quran. In sha Allah I will stick with the program. May Allah swt bless you and reward you for your endeavours.
