The ARABIC COURSE for English-Speaking students is a comprehensive and popular course for the teaching of the Qura'anic and Traditional Arabic, originally devised and taught at the renowned Madinah Islamic University, catering for the non-Arabic speaking students from all over the world. Over the years, this course has enabled students to become competent in the Arabic language and to participate and benefit from scholarly pursuits such as Qur'anic exegesis, hadith, fiqh, serah, history, and classical and modern Arabic literature. It is concise (consisting of only three books, reasonably short) but extensive in their coverage. It combines modern Arabic vocabulary with Islamic terminology used in the Qur'an and Sunnah. It helps acquire an understanding of hundreds of Qur'anic verses, ahadith, Arabic parables and poetry. This 3 volume revised edition by Dar-us-Salam has been produced in the best quality possible with full-color pages. Apart from having full-color images, the color variation in the text helps distinguish and highlight specific details for emphasis. All three volumes now contain the English lessons which were previously only in the first volume. The right side of the book starts with the Arabic while the left starts with the English lesson. In addition to the books, Dar-us-Salam has also introduced a new device called Language Master which helps in learning the Arabic language.
