If you are an absolute beginner, I suggest that you start learning the Arabic alphabet first, by going here: http://www.gawaher.c...the-28-letters/

Asalamu Alaikum,

These seem great, but maybe you need a pretty extensive background in Arabic already? He writes things on the board, and there is writing in the books; but no guide as to how to actually read Arabic...how do you determine how to say a word by looking at it in Arabic? I guess that's the problem I am having. It seems like you already have to know these things. He writes the word, says the meaning etc...but how can I learn to read Arabic without someone telling me how to pronounce the word and it's meaning first. Maybe these are not for people just starting?

Wa alaikum Assalam dear Alice,

Thank you for drawing my attention to this valuable notice. You're right, absolute beginners need to learn the Arabic alpgabet before starting to take that in-depth course.

I've just added a new topic to help you, and all new beginners, to learn the Arabic alphabet in an easy way. Insha'Allah you find it helpful:

Wa Alaykum Salam

How can we learn Islamic obligatory knowledge while learning Arabic at the same time, and school ?!

A good way would be learning how to recite Qur'aan .......

JazzakAllahu Khayr anyways

Al Salamu alikum
Thanks a lot for this course it's looks so nice
but actually i know Arabic,it's my mother language
and I said my maybe I can help and it can be like a class
if there are about 5 persons or it can be more and they want to learn Arabic ,we can fellow this book Al MAdina or i can recommend another for beginners and with using voice conference i think it can be much better to watch a video ,anyway it's just an offer totally for free,
and if you can teach your mother language ,even for a hour per week will be kind of you and JazakaAllah khairan, if not you still so welcome
actually it's a group call teach and learn ,
to help someone it's not required to wait sth in return that's because we are muslims Alhamdulilah
Salamu alikum

And about the last question

How can we learn Islamic obligatory knowledge while learning Arabic at the same time, and school ?!

While learning Arabic which is the language of the Holy Quraan ,you also can know about what's necessary to know as a muslim ,and it's easy to ask about it ,just it can be really easy if only you really want to know ..
sorry i didn't get you at "and school"
if you mean learning Arabic in the school so i think it's easier if it's Islamic school ,sorry if i got you wrong about this point

Best regards and
Salamu alikum

Hi. I have always been interested in learning Arabic but never really got the chance to. In my country, there is no language centre where Arabic is being taught :( From a friend, I've learnt a bit of Egyptian arabic..I like it, I think it's really cool :-) In the future when I get to do my degree in England (Inshallah), I am planning to study Arabic (modern standard).

But university is 2 years away..would be nice to learn the language now. Do you know any good website I could learn from? Preferably where I don't have to pay..?

By the way, I am not a complete beginner, I know the Arabic characters and can pronounce them well.

Thanks in advance! :)

Sorry to ask the (probably stupid and obvious) question, but is this modern standardised Arabic or the Arabic that was used for the Qu'ran (Koran, Quraan spelling correction please ) which, I am told is a rather different kettle of fish

I don't know what kettle of fish is (please advise), but this course teaches modern formal Arabic. The Quran (Qu'ran) uses traditional/historical formal Arabic which includes many words no longer used in modern Arabic. Formal Arabic is now only used in written forms, like books and newspapers. People don't use it in everyday life, they use local slang Arabic, different in each Arab country, but they all are more or less variations of the original formal Arabic.
