Arabic is the language of the Quran and therefore there can be no doubt that learning Arabic is a top priority for every Muslim. Allah says in the Quran:
Indeed, We have made it an Arabic Qur’an that you might understand. (Al-Zukhruf 43:3)
Anyone who wishes to extend their Islamic knowledge should acquire a solid understanding of Arabic. To make this easy and under the supervision of scholars and experts in the Arabic Language from Al-Azhar University, we have developed a comprehensive syllabus that can take you from not recognizing the letters to being able to converse in Arabic and understand the language.
The Arabic syllabus titled My Beautiful Language is divided into 3 components
(1) My Beautiful Language Comprehensive: Designed to provide a comprehensive solution that focuses on listening, reading, expression and writing in Arabic, students can get an all-in-one syllabus. Through the use of a variety of topics that relate to Islamic values, students with as low as 120 hours can complete a full level to a point where they can read, write and converse with ease.
(2) My Beautiful Language for Reading: With 5 levels, this syllabus is essential for those who are interested in expanding and accelerating their mastery of the Arabic language. The syllabus is rooted in the Sirah of Prophet Mohamed and covers details of his life and key events in Islamic history including biographies of the companions.
(3) My Beautiful Language for Grammar: For intermediate and advanced Arabic students, knowledge of the Arabic Grammar is essential and critical to advancing their understanding of the Quran and Arabic literature. The syllabus is designed to cover the key structures and constructs of Arabic sentences and relating that to the phonetics and pronunciation.
