Assalaamu alaykum,

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...
