  • arabic-past, present and future

    Al-Mawrid you may want to get the version which is the same but cheaper pocket size

    these dictionaries i think are post modern but because even the postmodernists use the root word of the language it is ok to get vocabulary out of. this is a good book as well that you may want to get

    ok lesson time, REMEMBER THIS IS THE PAST TENSE OR Al-Maadi:

    single(1 person):

    ana(my, mine)
    anta(your (masculine)
    anti(your femanine)
    huwa(his)
    heeya(hers)

    double(2 persons):
    nahnu(we)
    antuma(those masculine)
    antuma(those feminine)
    huumaa(theirs masculine)
    huumaa(theirs feminine)

    a group of 2 or more:
    nahnu(we)
    antum(them all masculine)
    antuna(them all feminine)
    huum(all those masculine)
    huuna(all those feminine)

    WHAT AM I GETTING MYSELF INTO!!!
    THIS GOING TO BE HARD.

    ok i am positive someone on the board is going to pull me over about some mistake i have made, NO argument i probably have.but have you tried teaching a language on a forum board!???!

    ok with those above in mind now you should know that using them has an individual ending, so for instance:

    to enter is da-kha-la

    oh another point here is a root word is made up of 3 letters, there are other with 4 and 5 and more but we will just concentrate on the 3 letter ones.

    so if i was to say "i entered" it would be the da-kha-la + 'ending below, in this example da-khal-tu
    oh another point when adding the ending the last 3 letters must be joined so da-kha-la becomes da-khal + 'ending.

    single(1 person):

    ana(my, mine) +tu
    anta(your (masculine) +ta
    anti(your femanine) +tee
    huwa(his) add nothing leave it as it is
    heeya(hers) +ut

    double(2 persons):

    nahnu(we) +na
    antuma(those masculine) +tuma
    antuma(those feminine) +tuma
    huumaa(theirs masculine) +aaa
    huumaa(theirs feminine) +aa-taa

    a group of 2 or more:

    nahnu(we) +na
    antum(them all masculine) +tum
    antuna(them all feminine) +tuuna
    huum(all those masculine) +ooo
    huuna(all those feminine +na

    learn that.



    if i don't post again on this topic accept my apologies but this is hard work. you cannot do justice to the arabic language by explaining the sounds and the countless other bits and bobs on a screen. I FEAR I MAY HAVE COMMITTED A SIN BY DEFINING AND PUTTING LETTERS OF THE QURAN INTO ENGLISH ALPHABET TO GET THE SOUND. :(

    yah ALLAH(SWT) forgive me if i have done wrong.

      i will say this about learning grammar first


      (where is that bronx cheer rasberry?) blehhhh

      i had previously been learning arabic the way almost every masjid teaches, using grammar first

      that makes the language hard and difficult to understand

      when you learned english, you learned to listen to the language before you spoke your first words

      then you said one word sentences, momma juice go come, etc

      then you made funny sounds that sounded like half sentences, but you learned the language by sounds, then formed half sentences, then full sentences, then people around you corrected you, and then when you were about 10 years old, you learned grammar

      so to me, lets learn vocabulary, words from quran and hadiths preferably, not colloquial arabic, then put words together, make some nonsensical sentences, but at least you will know what you are saying, and then we can learn grammar

      i would much rather here someone say, ana jaa'a ila masjidun, with them knowing the words, and not grammar, then them saying ana 'aji'tu minal masjidin and not knowing what they are saying

      and Allah knows best

      but remember this, there are two year old arab children who know arabic, and dont know spelling or grammar, but if you say something to them, they will understand

        jazakhllah kher dear sister and brother,

        i am in total agreement with you brother AbuMubarak, unfortunately at this age just listening and picking up the lexitology of the arabic language for me is hard and while just learning the grammer at times just seems like "where am i going with this?" i do understand that this was the ways non arab scholars learnt the language but alhumdulillah may ALLAH(SWT) insh-allah open up our hearts and ears to learn this blessed language any which way possible, i do not care, I JUST WANT TO UNDERSTAND IT first then speaking, reading, writing after.

          aameen.

          SubhanAllah you can't beat this way me thinks. I was telling everyone I met today how I can understand words from al fatiha.

          I was telling them about the root word a3bud (worship) and how you add the prefix alif, noon, ta etc to make a3budu (i worship), na3budu (we worship), ta3budu (you worship). They were most impressed, mashaa Allah :D

          And me and the kids have been saying how we have been eating food and sitting in the house, hehehehe. We were also adding the names of foods we know instead of ta'aam.

          SubhanAllah we had great fun.

            ok, smarty

            whats the word for door?

            my door
            your door
            their door
            our door

            and open is fataha

            and the command for open if iftah

            so now tell your kids to open the door, open my door, open your door, open a door

            and close is, ughlaq

            from the word, ghalaqa, to close

            so tell the kids to open the door, close the door, open my door, close your door

            and when you really get smooth, tell them to open their book, close their book, open your book, close your book, open my book, close my book

            (this should keep her busy)

                        3:103 And hold fast, all together, unto the bond with God, and do not draw apart from one another. And remember the blessings which God has bestowed upon you: how, when you were enemies, He brought your hearts together, so that through His blessing you became brethren; and [how, when] you were on the brink of a fiery abyss. He saved you from it. In this way God makes clear His messages unto you, so that you might find guidance.
