Have you ever wondered how people can read Arabic text without any vowels? Have you ever read Quran and seen Allah's name sometimes ending with a damma, sometimes ending with a kas-ra and sometimes ending with a fat-ha?
All this has to do with the skill of Arabic grammar. As with any language, there are rules to sentence structure. These rules are necessary for others to understand what we are trying to express. Grammar is to the language like a skeleton is to the body. We all need a skeleton to stand upright and to walk. However we also need flesh and meat and muscle. When learning and using this language, we don't want to be all bone or all flesh and meat, we want balance in all of our skills.
So this course is intended to help you build a basic foundation step-by-step and you don't want to miss this important skill.
So let's get started!
My name is Ustaatha Nadiya Johnson and I will be guiding you through your learning journey here at Nakh-lah Arabic Center. Over 20 years ago, I traveled to Egypt & Saudi Arabia to study Arabic and Quran. During my studies, I witnessed many of my Western sisters having great difficulty learning in the fast-paced classrooms of the Middle East and sadly, most got left behind. I decided then to become a teacher and I designed this 12-16 program to serve the learning needs of my sisters in Islam.
Ahlan!! (Welcome) I look forward to working with you.
and with Allah is all success...
