If there is anything (links/books/audios/videos) not working or missing, kindly leave a comment on the post, Inshaa Allah i will try to get things back on place. If you would like something, leave a request in the comment, inshaa Allah i will try to help you out. Keep learning and NeVer Give uP.
1. You will receive several new words every three days, in sha Allah. Take the the new words and memorize them. Replace the English words with the Arabic ones. For example, if your new word is Baab (which means door in Arabic), start replacing the word door with baab. For example, say: "Open the baab" or "Close the baab" or "Why is the baab open?"
2. Be patient! As time goes on, you will begin to see a significant increase in your vocabulary and understanding. The Dawd Center specializes in Arabic Immersion. This means all lessons are completely in Arabic. If you followed the first step, it will be very easy for you to retain words. You may be familiar with many words in this program already, but it is okay. You can forward these emails to family and friends and allow them to benefit from this program as well.
3. Be consistent! Once you start don't stop. It's only a few words every three days. That's about a word a day. Keep going until you finish. The videos are less than three minutes each.
It is interesting to note here that most people don't use more than 1,000 words in day to day conversation. With consistency you can reach that number sooner than you think.
You will receive a video with the most commonly used Arabic words. We will translate one time. We will not translate words you have already learned. All translations are below the video. The video is completely in Arabic. Why? Well, you will start to associate the words with the sound of the words and not the Arabic word with its English translation. This is very important. You want to look at a word and think of it in Arabic. This exercise will allow you to think quickly in your new language. Here is your first lesson:
السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاتهWe have some exciting news from the website of the respected Shaykh Dr. V. Abdur Rahim:
We are offering (a limited number of) Free copies of our Shaykh's outstanding course-book that teaches Qur'aanic Arabic through the sacred text of Suurah Yuusuf. The book is named:
المسعِفُ في لغةِ وإعرابِ سورة يوسفَ (Lexical & Grammatical Exposition of Suurah Yuusuf ["alayhis-salaam]).
It is an exceptional work maa shaa Allaah, with a wealth of classical Arabic vocabulary, wealth of lexical & grammatical notes, wealth of Qur'aanic aayaat cited from other suurahs, wealth of citations from Ibn Maalik's famous "Al-Alfiyyah" ( a classical Arabic text teaching the fundamentals of Arabic grammar through couplets), wealth of exercises to test grammar, Sarf, and language skills, etc, wa l-Hamdu lillaah.
It is recommended for advanced students of Arabic (e.g. if you have completed the Madinah course or have attained proficiency in Arabic equivalent to it), for teachers, Arabic institutions, colleges and universities for forming part of their Arabic language curriculum.
We are writing a special email to registered members at the Shaykh Dr. V. Abdur Rahim's website, in order to convey some wonderful news for all students, teachers, parents, institutes of Arabic etc,:
Now available at the website of the Institute of Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language, Islaamic University of Madinah, are the 3 Madinah Arabic Books, in a new fully-interactive format which enhances the enjoyment of learning and accelerates the rate at which material is understood and recalled.
The site presents audio files and written lessons of the entire Madinah Arabic Course (3 Volumes), along with audios and text of the entire 2-year Arabic Language and Islaamic Studies curriculum which is authored and compiled by our respected Shaykh, and comprise various lessons in Qur'aan, Hadiith, Fiqh, Siirah, Stories of the Prophets, etc.
The special feature for non-natives is that all lessons and audios are available in Arabic, along with the translation in the language you wish to have translated.
For example, an English-speaker has the translation provided (in writing) on the screen as they listen to each word and sentence from the text, dialogues, exercises, vocabulary etc from any one lesson.
One has the option to close the translation facility if one is fluent in Arabic.
The benefit of providing a written on-line translation and not a vocal one alongside the vocalised Arabic, is to enhance listening fluency of the Arabic.
Lessons are prepared with colours, carefully-coded to teach the lexical and grammatical elements .
There are many foreign languages at this site which the Madinah Books and 2-year syllabus can be viewed in, and studied.
This is a tremendous facilitation for non-native speakers of Arabic worldwide.
Important Note: The audios and site material work best when the site is viewed through Internet Explorer (7). The site does not fully operate throughsome other Internet Browsers (like Mozilla Firefox) so please view the site via Internet Explorer (7).
شرح متن الآجرومية للشيخ محمد بن علي آدم الإثيوبي الولوي ـ حفظه الله ـ
ترجمة للشيخ الشارح – حفظه الله- : من هنا ـ وصف المتن:” متن الآجرومية ” لأبي عبد الله محمد بن محمد بن داود الصنهاجي المعروف بـ” ابن آجروم ” المتوفي سنة (723هـ) – رحمه الله تعالى – وهو متن مشهور مبارك. حيث يبين الكتاب أنواع الكلام وإعرابه. وقد عرض كل ذلك بإيجاز دون أن يكون ذلك على حساب الإيضاح. فبين في باب الإعراب باب معرفة علامات الإعراب ثم عقد فصلاً في المعربات ثم أتبع ذلك بباب الأفعال، حيث بين أنواعها وأحوالها وإعراب كل حالة وانتقل إلى باب مرفوعات الأسماء ومن ثم باب الفاعل وباب المفعول وبعدها تناول باباً آخر في المبتدأ والخبر والعوامل الداخلة عليه، ومن ثم تحدث في أبواب لاحقة عن النعت والعطف والتوكيد والبدل والمتعديات من الأسماء والمفعول به والمصدر وظرف المكان والزمان، والحال والتمييز والاستثناء والمنادى والمفعول من أجله والمفعول من معه ثم اختتم المتن بالمخفوضات من الأسماء.
