    Books to self-study Classical/Quranic Arabic, from beginner to advanced?

    This is the syllabus I shall be using to self-study although you may need a teacher towards the end (not sure, will find out).

    I will simply name the books now but I will improve and add to it very soon and continue doing so as I learn more. I will improve the structure, add more links and more info and I'll also explain why I've included each book and why study in this fashion, Insha Allah.

    Please note, this is only my unqualified view in the self-study approach to the language of Classical Arabic. I have used what Sunni_Student786 has said in this thread and extended it. I don't have a great deal of knowledge in this and the following syllabus is purely from my extensive research on the subject and from help in this thread, although to my belief, this is a great syllabus and you shouldn't have any problems studying this way. I must thank Sunni_Student786 for his help through which I have created this post.
    I request that anyone comment/criticise it so I can better it.
    Also, I'll be able to consult a mawlana if someone has a good question and can't find the answer to it (regarding this).

    Here is the link to THIS particular post in this forum so that you may refer anyone to it, although I suggest you don't do so right now; allow me to improve it first.

      That's a lot of books, how many hours will you be putting in daily/weekly for the self study.

        I know there are a lot of books, but most people self-study up to a much lesser extent. This is for people who want to study all of it (There are more advances ofcourse, but this is up until the extent the bigger Madrasah's - like boarding schools - teach I believe). It'll get more difficult towards the end to self-study I suspect, in which case you might need a teacher, but I'll look that up if it is the case and I'll also try to find English content for it.
        I don't know yet how many hours a week I will be dedicating; I will decide later. Currently focusing on exams. I'll be doing this along with my uni (college) studies Insha Allah.

          as Salaamu alaykum brother Zakir.

          May Allah reward you for your efforts.

          Please allow me 12-36 hours to give you some feedback on what you have outlined.

          Regardless, may you be successful in your attempt to learn the language of the Book of Allah, his Prophet, and the people of Paradise and may you be of those who are successful in this life and the hereafter.

          Wa'salaam.

              I myself have been doing something similar on and off the last few years. ...
              Mashllah great reply, may Allah reward you for it. Do you know where I can find the book "All the Arabic you should have learned the first time around". I live in the US, so please let me know any book stores or online stores that carry this book. I tried googling it, but couldn't find anything.

                Assalamu Alaykum Bothers and Sisters

                I just came across this thread and found it inspirational, Alhamdulillah!

                I'm self studying using the following book:

                Das Sabaq of Mawlana 'Abd al Salam Kidwai Nadvi (Ten Lessons on Arabic)

                Does anyone has the answers for the exercises so I can check that my answers are correct? Without a teacher to correct me I need to know if my answers are on the right tracks and helping with my progression. Any help would be much appreciated!

                JazakAllah Khayr

                Mohammad.

                    Try the madinah Arabic series
                    It's the best I've come across Alhamdulilah
                    "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

                        I second the Madina Arabic series, they are amazing and you can easily find them in most Islamic bookstores.

                          So many people want to learn the Arabic. I'm still stuck at the end of Madinah series book 2. Hoping to resume soon, all alone and unsupported. Self motivated and what not, I will do it

                          PS: Madinah series is not boring.

                            Is that a good idea or shall I just get the book?
                            Accept the decree

                              The books are available here.

                              You think you know more than my scholar's qiyās? He was more learned than you and all other scholars combined. Yeah, the devil was the greatest scholar too and look where his qiyās of fire being better than tīn got him. Sorry.

                              You follow your scholar's qiyās, and I will follow the Qur'ān and Sunnah.
