Alsalam alikom w rahmat Allah w barakato,

Bismillah arahman arahim,

As I am  native arabic speaker,I hope I could help.Besides,my sister's fiance did his PHD in Arabic language,I may ask him if there is a hard question....

Hanan,

The Arabic language of the quran is proper Arabic "fusha"not colloquial.Of course you know that the bribe of "qurish" spoke that proper Arabic and they were very fluent in it.And Despite their fluency in Arabic,All of them admitted that the quran is not similar to their sayings.As the quran was challenging them of the best they had(their language).And when"Alwalid ibn al moghira" the enemy of Islam listened to the quran,he said that it's so sweet and nothing can be better than it.

About learning Arabic,I think that it's logical that you have to start with the alphabets as learning any other language (even I think that the arabic language is not like any other language)....

I hope I can help you....

Alsalam alikom w rahmat Allah w barakato..

I do think the alphabet is the best way to start.

I was born in an all english speaking house with a few relatives that still spoke a smattering of Ruthenian/Ukrainian/Russian (depending on the person). 

I've learned 3 languages since that time (only one am I any good at)  Russian, Latin and Japanese.

We should start with letters and some very basic grammar rules, like i before e, except after c.

Assalam alaikum and ramadhan mubarak Sister Hanan,

There are lots and lots of sites on the web for learning Arabic, the one you have posted is useful as it has sounds you can listen to.

For myself, I think that nothing can compare to actually speaking with someone who is an Arabic speaker in order to learn the language properly, but, any additional learning (web, books, tapes, etc.) is all good.

Over all, it is a difficult language to learn and only lots and lots of practice, oral as well as reading and writing are necessary.  The reading and writing part is (in my opinion) much easier than the oral part, there are sounds in Arabic that are very difficult to master for the non-native speaker!

My advice to beginner's, try learning from children's books/tapes/sites, that way you get the very basics needed to advance in the language.  When starting with adult oriented programs it is often far more difficult because they tend to "jump in with both feet" before the basics are taught (for example, learning phrases before you even know about fatha, kasra or dhamma is just confusing!).

Peace, ummziba.

As Salamu Alaikum

Jazakallahu Khairan to the Administration for providing us a new section devoted to the Arabic Language.

Sis Hanan, I think, Fear Allah was referring Walid ibn Mughaira who was one of the greatest enemies of the Prophet  (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and he never accepted Islam.

I agree with Sis Ummziba, Arabic is a very difficult language to learn, I know from experience and the best way to learn the language is, in a real class room. Even the grammar is difficult to understand, if one does not have a good teacher.

Alhamdulillah there are many sites where one can learn Arabic and it always helps to get familiar with the words and sounds as it makes it easier for us (non-Arab Muslims) to read the Glorious Qur'an.

After trying on my own using the internet, online classes, books, tapes and other media, I have given up learning Arabic grammar but devised my own method of learning to understand the Glorious Qur'an without a translation. I am trying for the last four years.

Insha Allah this forum will give me the opportunity to share my notes and learn from the experiences of others.

Wa Alaikum Salam

i have discovered while trying to learn swahili that there are plenty of swahili words which are the same in arabic as well. e.g Dunya means the world in both swahili and arabic
