Assalaamu alaykum,

My name is Ummu Aamina Nadiya Johnson and I will be guiding you through your learning journey here at Nakh-lah Arabic Center. Over 20 years ago, I was a college student and an army brat. I was living in Europe studying French, German, Spanish, and Italian. Upon graduation, I had planned to travel to Hawaii to study Japanese. However, in an amazing turn of events, I became a Muslim and traveled to Egypt to study Arabic! Since then, I have lived in the Arab world for 15 years speaking Classical/ Standard Arabic ("fus-ha") and regional dialect on a daily basis, living as both a student and a teacher. I have taught in the Middle East and in the U.S., both face-to-face and online. As a teacher, I am serious about the development of your skills so you will find a variety of courses here to help train you in the skills of speaking, listening, reading, grammar and writing. It is my hope that these courses will aid you in understanding the Quran, Hadith, Islamic knowledge and that you share what you learn with your family so that we make Arabic a living language among the non-Arab Muslims.

Ahlan!! (Welcome) I look forward to working with you.

and with Allah is all success...
