    Hans Wehr Dictionary

    The Madinah Books Series
    The Arabic Course for English-Speaking Students is a comprehensive and popular course for the teaching of the Qur’anic and Traditional Arabic, originally devised and taught at the renowned Madinah Islamic University, catering for the non-Arabic speaking students from all over the world. Over the years, this course has enabled students to become competent in their use of the Arabic language and to participate and benefit from scholarly pursuits such as Qur’anic exegeses, hadith, fiqh, sirah, history, and classical and modern Arabic literature.

It Helps acquire an understanding of hundreds of Qur’anic verses, ahadith, Arabic parables and poetry." Learning classical Arabic effectively could not be more easier than this course of Madinah Islamic University. A tried and tested course over 40 years with proven track record of success, it is ideal in terms of the topics covered and short time taken to learn. It is suitable for schools and colleges in the UK and other Western English speaking countries.

    Tabs:- Grammar, Classical Arabic, English notes, Audio and DVD.

    mazshaz Review:-
    It’s as good as they say. This was the first book I studied. I studied these books in Madina under the author student while Abdulreem was the head of the Arabic department. It was the first book I taught. The quickest I taught the first book was 3 weeks for book 1 and about 2 weeks for book 2. That seems enough to know about 85% of the words in the Quran and knowing the rules. Book 3 is harder (especially the last ½ of it) so I recommend a few other books before studying it. I am now intending to teach my children the first book with the book 1, book 2 and book 1 (extension) of Gateway to Arabic books.

      Arabic Tutor Vol 1-4

      “From the Treasures of Arabic Morphology” is a comprehensive book of Ilmus Sarf. Please note that “From the Treasures of Arabic Morphology” has been published by Zamzam publishers of Karachi, Pakistan. (www.zamzampub.com) Anyone requiring a copy may do so by contacting the publishers directly. Although the quality of the print is not very good, it will suffice for the incumbent student who requires a book on Sarf urgently, until a new edition is printed.

      • Nahw (Grammar) - Arabic Tutor Vol 1
      • Nahw (Grammar) - Arabic Tutor Vol 2
      • Nahw (Grammar) - Arabic Tutor Vol 3
      • Nahw (Grammar) - Arabic Tutor Vol 4
      • Nahw (Grammar) - Ilmun Nahw
      • Sarf (Morphology) - Treasures of Arabic Morphology

      Tabs:- Grammar, Classical Arabic and English explanation of Grammatical Arabic.

      Shazmaz Review:-
      These books are good for those who do not know Arabic well and want to study Arabic through a translated language. I came across these books about 6 months ago. I studied Vol 1 (twice), Vol 2 (twice) Vol 3, Vol 4 (half of it) and the Sart. After a while a person needs to study a language in its original(pure) format. I was total bored with the Sarf book but it can be boring. These books maybe good for IGSCE and AS level for revision purposes as it is well summarized and students need to know how to translations for the exams. I think these are about 95% better than a lot of Arabic books in English and cheaper. At the moment there is no Audio CD with these books.

        Fundamentals of Classical Arabic

        Fundamentals of Classical Arabic is a series of practical, easy-to-read books that help students learn the difficult subjects of Arabic verb conjugation and grammar. Based on methodologies used by Islamic scholars for centuries, this series focuses on grasping short, understandable principles to steadily build a comprehension of the language. This first volume provides a framework for studying the Arabic language, introduces Arabic word patters, and covers the essentials of conjugating common verb and noun forms. Throughout the book, important concepts are explained in a lucid and concise manner. Tables provide a review of the concepts covered in each lesson, and the accompanying audio compact disc helps students memorize conjugations of common verb and noun patterns.


        Tabs:- Verbs, Classical Arabic and English explanation of verbs patterns in Arabic.

        Shazmaz Review:-
        I intend to go over it with the Audio this week. It looks good for the basic beginner to learn the verb pattern etc.

          Al-Arabiyatu Bayna Yadayk

          This series is designed for the non-Arab speaking, senior level student. With a collection of audiotapes and MP3 CD it helps the student learn Arabic through listening and conversation along with reading and writing. The series stresses communication and also offers glimpses into the Arabic culture, both Islamic and national. Divided into 3 grades, it contains textbooks and workbooks combined in one book. The entire series can be taught intensively in 300 classes (averaging 45 minutes one class,) 100 classes for each grade. If the program is not intensive, it can be taught within a three-year period.

          Tabs:- Grammar, Classical Arabic, Speech and Audio.

          Shazmaz Review:-
          I first read the first 2 chapters in Riyadh – Saudi without the audio CD when I was at the publisher about 6 months ago. I liked the books at the time but didn’t have enough money to buy them. I found them on this web site and covered the first 10 chapter of the first book with the Audio tapes and I loved it. I am intending to buy the books next time I am there (Inshallah) as reading them on-line is becoming irritating. I will probable teach these to my children with the Medina books i.e. cover Madina (book 1) then Bayna Yadayk (book 1), then Bayna Yadayk (book 2) Madina (book 2) etc. The Madina (book 1) should be covered first for beginners then the Bayan book as it tends to be basic and Bayan book covers speech and verb (past and present) very early. These books have a good Arabic to Arabic dictionary with these books which is brilliant for those who want to think in Arabic rather than know that (albit) means the house.

            Hans Wehr Dictionary and Al-Mawrid Arabic-English Dictionary

            Shazmaz Review:-
            I have always used Hans Wehr since studying my 2nd Medina book it not just a dictionary but you learn sarf from it as well that why I never bought Al-Mawrid.

                    A New Arabic Grammar of the Written Language (Paperback)
                    by John A. Haywood


                    http://avaxhome.ws/ebooks/arabic-grammar.html

                    Product Description--
                    The essential study guide to Arabic grammar -- A true classic in the field. In addition to Qur'an selections, fables, stories, newspaper extracts, letters, and excerpts from classical and modern Arabic writings are included. The book contains 52 chapters with a vocabulary of over 4,000 words. It will serve as a basis for further and deeper study of this classical language and its literature; at the same time it will help to form a good foundation for those who wish to concentrate on the modern written language of literature and the daily press. This is above all a practical grammar. It is meant for the beginner who is not familiar with the peculiarities of the Semetic languages. Nevertheless, it is comprehensive enough for most students' needs in the first two or three years of study.

                    Tabs:- Grammar, Classical Arabic and English explanation of Grammatical Arabic.

                    Shazmaz Review:-
                    Found this last night. It is recommended by a few for GCSE Classical Arabic. It looks ok but I don’t think I could put up with the PDF format and so much English text. Arabic Tutor is better along with learning Arabic from its pure source (Arabic only books).

                      Product Description
                      Gateway to Arabic is a well-structured, progressive course that has been carefully designed to teach Arabic in a non-Arabic-speaking environment to learners from a broad age range. It is highly popular with evening and weekend madrasahs, Muslim schools, as well as with adult learners. As students progress in building up their knowledge of Arabic grammar and vocabulary, they are able to put into practice the skills they have acquired through written exercises, spoken passages of dialogue and comprehension exercises.

                      Tabs:- Arabic and English explanation mainly for children.

                      Shazmaz Review:-
                      These are nearly in every online islamic book shop. These are very nice for children. I bought the full set with the Audio DVD. I have gone through the Book 1, 2 and extension book 1. The kids are ½ way through book 1. I intend to go though Book 1, 2 and extension book 1 with them. After reading most of book 3 and looking over the rest the main benefit for children’s will be these 3 and then use the Merdina books as the verb section is set out much better in Madina book 2 than the gateway book.

                          Shazmaz Review:-
                          I don’t like colloquial Arabic at all. It makes me cringe to read the words but it is nicely set out and it shows what can be done with all the traditional books that are still recommended by the Exam boards, universities colleges and schools. They should be updated or other books recommended in a newer format.
