Quranic Arabic 101

Allow the advice of your Master to enter your hearts

“Indeed We, We have revealed it as an Arabic Quran so that you may understand “(12:2)

The Quran is the final speech of Allah revealed through Angel Gabriel on the heart of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in eloquent Arabic language. Quran is the ultimate guidance and a mercy to humanity. Quran cannot be understood without the study of Arabic language. In Surah Yusuf, ayah 2, Allah (swt) links the understanding of the Quran to the Arabic language. The power of the Quran is not only derived from its profound message and timeless universal laws but also from its remarkable language, word choice, its use of a wide variety of rhetorical devices, its style of narrating parables and stories, the coherence, structure and order of its chapters that remain mysterious to the readers of English translations of the Quran. The focus of this foundational course is to study the syntax and morphology of Arabic language and see how the Quran uses those very rules to convey it’s miraculous message.

Prerequisite – Students should be able to read the Quran fluently. No prior Arabic background is needed to start this course.

INSTRUCTOR

Junaid Ali earned his honors Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with two minor degrees in Linguistics and Professional Writing from the University of Toronto. His excellent science writing distinguished him from many science writers to publish a paper in the University of Toronto’s research journal called ‘Compass’. The paper is called ‘Second Language and Grey Matter Density’.

Alongside the memorization of the Quran, he pursued Arabic studies. He has always been inspired by the beauty of the Quran and enjoyed delving deeper within it to discover its gems. This passion led him to join Bayyinah’s Dream Program, Texas, USA and graduate among the top of his class. He has been learning and teaching Arabic since 2012 and has taught over 1000 students around the world. He currently serves as a Vice President of Al-Manarat Heights Islamic School, Jum’ah Khateeb in local Masaajids and a Youth Activist in Toronto.

TESTIMONIALS

” I am a student of the Arabic language for over 7 years, I tried many avenues but the strategy that al-Manarat adopted is the best. The class environment is extremely friendly and you learn from the class and homework assignments. The content was explained so well that my 13-year daughter and nephew understood it too. I believe every Muslim should take this opportunity and take Arabic 101 & 102 from al-Manarat Heights. Thank you” AFZAL SHAHID

“I have had the best experience at Al-Manarat. I took the Arabic Grammer level 1 and level 2 and learned a lot. Brother Junaid is one of the devoted teachers I know. I was able to understand and implement what I learned alhamdulillah. I would definitely recommend this institute to everyone (and the course I took in this institute).

You definitely will not regret it!” YOUMNA FATIMA

“I had wanted to learn Quranic Arabic for a very long time but I could not find any courses in the Toronto area that I thought would be suitable for me. I would try and study from various sources at home on my own and knew of some online courses but the kind of person I am, I learn better when I am bound by a teacher to complete assignments, etc and prefer physical classrooms rather than virtual. During my almost frantic searches at time on internet, I found out last year that Bayyinah was bringing their Dream course to Toronto and without any second thoughts, I signed up for it and paid $1100 USD right away only to find out a few days later that they had postponed their plan to come to Toronto. I got my money back but super disappointed, I got back on google and once again began my searches and came across the website link for Quranic Arabic 101 at Al Manarat Heights. Just going through their syllabus gave me goosebumps because it sounded exactly as the way Bayyinah was going to teach their Dream course and better yet, all classes were at a physical location which was not that far from me unlike the Dream course, that was partially going to be online. And if that was not good enough, this course was going to cost way less than the Dream course (only $20 a month as a donation for the school. Who can’t pay that for Allah’s book?). Needless to say, I signed up right away and when I started attending the classes, the resemblance to the Dream course started making sense as the teacher Brother Junaid himself had been a student at Bayyinah. There is no doubt that the method used in this course makes it very easy to learn the basics of Quranic Arabic, granted you’re committed and put in the required effort outside of class. I still have a long way to go and a lot of vocabulary to add to my memory before I can translate Quran while reading its original text but during this course, I could see my step by step progress every class because our learning translated into reality as the teacher only used Quranic examples. Furthermore, something else I really enjoyed was the fact that quite often while learning a concept and translating a verse or even some words as an example, we would end up having wonderful discussions on how the verse is relevant to us and our times and so we always got to learn more than just a concept of Quranic Arabic. The teacher himself is also a knowledgeable person, who makes a considerable effort to help us appreciate the verses of the Quran due to its linguistic style in addition to what is actually being said. I don’t think I need to say it but here goes – I most definitely recommend this course to anyone who is eager to learn the basics of the language of the Quran.
All the best!”
