Welcome to the new Arabic Language teaching resource of our
Shaykh Dr. V. Abdur Rahim – a distinguished Scholar of Arabic Language and Literature and renowned for teaching Arabic to non-native speakers of Arabic for more than 50 years. The Shaykh was formerly Professor of Arabic Language for 30 years at the International Islaamic University of Madinah , and then Director of the Institute of Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language, Madinah Islaamic University. Currently our Shaykh is the Director of the Translation Centre at the King Fahd Glorious Qur’aan Printing Complex and has served as its Director for over 15 years (may Allaah preserve him and benefit us with his knowledge).
The respected Shaykh is teaching the Sciences of Arabic to students and teachers through five programmes:
1. Lessons in the Glorious Qur’aan
2. Lessons in Hadiith
3. Lessons in Arabic Poetry
4. Lessons in Arabic Grammar
5. Lessons in the Arabic Language
We are accepting questions on any of the Sciences of Arabic answered by the Shaykh in Q & A.
Alongside the on-line lessons, we recommend you learn the Arabic Sciences from the Shaykh’s post-graduate books and courses. These are prepared for the Madinah Books’ graduates, or students who have attained proficiency in Arabic equivalent to them. These develop the student’s understanding to advanced levels, teach intricate aspects of grammar and Sarf and build on what the student has already learnt with the Shaykh. They also prepare students for other traditional texts. The post-Madinah Course materials teach Arabic through carefully selected texts from the Glorious Qur’aan and ‘aHaadiith.
