Understand, Live by, Inspire

Lovers of Arabic language! Grab this opportunity!!

Dear sisters and brothers, Assalamu Alaikum.

Yesterday I was happy to find a fabulous e-mail from the Admin of Shaykh Dr. V. Abdur Rahim’s website conveying some wonderful news for all students, teachers, parents, organisations and institutes interested in the teaching-learning of Arabic language.

I wish to share this good news with the readers of my blog. Therefore I am reproducing the content of the e-mail with the kind permission of the Admin of the Shaykh’s blog:

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 through some other Internet Browsers (like Mozilla Firefox) so please view the site via Internet Explorer (7).

Click this link.  And E n j o y learning the l a n g u a g e of the Qur’an!

(If you are using a web browser other than Internet Explorer, please switch to Internet Explorer at this point to have full access to material).

We hope all students, teachers, parents, institutions etc benefit greatly from this rich, interactive Arabic teaching resource which paves the way for non-natives to master Arabic, in shaa Allaah.

If you are doing the 3 Madinah Books, the above site should be your primary on-line resource to help teach you.

  2. Thanks for this. It sounds amazing. I remember when I first saw those books a couple of years ago, I was overwhelmed because of their layout. Will be looking into this one for sure.
    Jazaka Allahu khair for spreading the word!

  4. That’s interesting. I am on a quest to learn and perfect arabic to aid my understanding of the Qur’an. Simplified materials would sure help non arabic speaking muslims willing to learn. May Allaah reward you for sharing. Keep up the Da’awah. Your blog is so so informative.

  5. AsSalamu ‘Alaikum.

    Sometimes I find the site inactive. In the last two days I couldn’t see the lessons.
    Does anyone face same problems ?

    • Wa alaikumus salam.
      Thank you for your concern.
      It is extremely difficult to come up with new posts on a daily basis especially when you have three blogs!

      • I am sorry. I meant to say that the Madina Arabic web-site you mentioned is sometimes inactive. I was not talking about your yassarnal quran web-site.
        Sorry again for the misunderstanding.

        Comment by Tanweer | January 30, 2012 | Reply

        • Oh..ok. Even i am sorry for that misunderstanding.
          I will try to contact the admin. of that site, Inshaa’Allah.
          Thank you for taking time and commenting. I appreciate your enthusiasm to learn the language of the Qur’an.

  6. Salam Brother MuQeet: I found this information initially on the DR Abdur Rahim’s blog and I struggled for two days but somehow the audios on my laptop do not work. Then I searched with the keywords given on his blog and then found this site. I tried the link (http://iqra.mediu.edu.my/eBooks/index.htm) again after reading through here but I can do every thing except that I cannot see the audio files anywhere. I am an Information Technology professional and normally help others overcome such problems but it is the firts time in my life I am having this problem. May be I am doing a little mistake but I don’t know what? I am using internet Explorer. No one else seems to have this issue. Strange as I don’t see any complaint!!

    • Wa alaikumus salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.
      dear brother, after reading your comment i checked the website and have sent a request mail to them to look into the matter and let us know about the audio files. Inshaa’Allah I will let you know the details once i get a response from them so that you can sort out the problem.
      Jazakallah Khayr for your care and concern. Vassalam.
