Beginner level introduces the student to the Arabic language and focuses on developing the student’s ability to recognize each letter in writing as well as when spoken. The student learns the proper pronunciation of each letter as well as how to write the letters of the Arabic language independently and in script, which is an integral part of proper reading. The student will also hone his/her skills by doing multiple different reading and writing exercises. This course also begins the Arabic student’s first foray into the amazing world of grammar.
The curriculum is developed by Ust. Tahir Khwaja and Sh. Azam Riaz (rahimahullah)
