Lugha and Laghw: Connected and yet different!

Part 1 and Part 3

Arabic is a language par excellence. And Qur’anic Arabic is a miracle of all miracles!

Even though Lugha and Laghw come from the same root they are very different in meaning and connotations.

At-Tibyan: Easy Way to Qur’anic Reading (PDF with AUDIO)

An excellent and innovative brain child of the pioneering author, Dr. V Abdur Rahim, At-Tibyan is very useful to those who want to learn the art of reading Qur’anic Arabic through some basic English speech sounds.
