All praises for Allah, Lord Master and Absolute Sovereign of the Universe, for only by His aid are all good deeds completed, and may the salutations of Allah and His peace and blessings be upon the Messenger Muhammad, the Trustworthy One, and upon his family and companions, and those that follow them and their way until the Day of Judgment.
اللهم صلّ على محمد وعلى آل محمد كما صليت على إبراهيم وعلى آل إبراهيم إنك حميد مجيد وبارك على محمد وعلى آل محمد كما باركت على إبراهيم وعلى آل إبراهيم إنك حميد مجيد
O Allah may the prayer (for all good) be upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as you have given your prayer (for all good) upon Ibraheem and the family of Ibraheem, – Verily you are Praiseworthy, Glorious. And bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as you have Ibraheem and the family of Ibraheem – Verily you are Praiseworthy, Glorious.
> For Learning the Arabic Language:
Below are some links of useful pages for learning various aspects of the Arabic language. I learned in the USA, Sudan, and Saudi Arabia before the computer age and I am amazed at all the resources available, may Allah bless all the brothers and sisters for their efforts, increase them in beneficial knowledge, pure lawful provisions, and good deeds acceptable to Allah the Most Exalted.
Learning Arabic Language sufficiently is a necessary tool to better understand the Book Of Allah, the Quran, the authentic Sunnah, and the Islamic Code of Jurisprudence (Sharee’ah).
More coming soon, insha-Allah (God -willing, with links, etc.

Tips on how to use Hans Wehr Arabic English Dictionary
To search an Arabic Word in this dictionary (the Hans Wehr Arabic English Dictionary) you must seek the ARABIC ROOT which is a three letter VERB, since almost all words are listed according to the root.
Remember that a two letter Arabic verb with a Shaddah on the last letter should be counted as three letters since the last letter was doubled, and note the some particles may have only two letters.
Thus, determine what kind of word is it:
Verb, Noun or Particle (Fe’l, Ism, Harf)
Then note what are the additional letters that have been added to the three letter root. The additional letters are called (حروف الزوائد) or (الحروف الزائدة)
Here you may use the conjugation charts, and the verb declinations chart, or any other useful aid in determining what are the additional letters to arrive at the Arabic root: then look for this root in the dictionary.
Page 8 of the introduction of the book is helpful
The Arabs when discussing a verb give the sequence of past, present, order, and then the verbal noun (gerund), the noun of subject then the noun of object:
past, present, order (command), gerund (noun of the verb), active particle (the noun of subject), the passive particle (the noun of object), etc:
فعل يفعل فعلا فهو فاعل ومفعول
Sometimes they would add other information like
alima to know عَلِمَ
Roman numeral two II = علّم
And then IV = أعلم
And then V = تعلّم
And then X = استعلم
Then the nouns, and so on and on in this Arabic root.

About teaching Arabic language
I have been teaching, what are commonly known as the Madina Books of Dr. V Abdur Raheem, may Allah protect him and increase him in goodness, for quite a while to my student privately in tutoring sessions, and in groups classes, onsite and online. I have found them to be excellent books, and decisively better than any other series in the field upon comparison and evaluation (theoretical and practical).
Dr. V Abdur Raheem is a genius at teaching the Arabic language, and has a proven track record. His books have many clear indications of the deep insights he has for the particular language needs of students no matter their educational level. His presentations, conversations and exercises are exceptionally excellent for their simplicity and measured structured repetition, moving all lessons learned from the student’s short term to the long term memory using audio, visual, kinetic, emotional, and moral markers of planned recurrence. Moreover, many subtleties distinguish the work for superior intelligence, productivity and excellence. The student never finds that the exercises are so easy to bore, or so complex and difficult to frustrate: they are always on target to engage and enhance the learning process, moving the student towards mastery of each part, structure, principle and style of the Arabic language.
Book One of the series teaches the student to quickly master the basics of grammar (Nahw) and morphology (Sarf) and read simple sentences, and then ever more complex sentences, without the notations of “ I`rab” (ar Raf’a, al Nasab, al Khafadh, al Jazm) and the “Tashkeel” notations (Fatha; Kasra; Damma, Shadda; Sukoon; Tanween; Madd; Hamzat al Qat’a wa Hamzat al Wasal; at Takhallasu min Iltiqa`a as Sakinain, Huroof al ‘Illah; etc) because the student thoroughly learns the basics of the following through practice: al Jumlat al Ismiyyah; al Ma’rifa wal Nakira; al Mubtada wal Khabr; Huruuf al Jarr; Harf al Jarr wal Majroor; al Jumlat al Fe’liyyah; al-Fe’il wa Faa’il wal Maf’uul; al Mudaf wa Mudaf ilaihi; Na’tun wa Man’uutun; ad Damaa`ir al Mutasilah wal Munfasilah; azth Ztharoof; Ztharf al Makan wa zth Ztharf az Zaman; Jam’a at Takseer wa Jam’a al Mudthkar as Salim wa Jam’a al Mu`annath as Salim; al ‘Adaad al ‘Arabi; al Munsarif wal Mamnu’u min as Sarf; etc.
Many books series continually provide the full “I`rab” and “Tashkeel” notations even far into the lessons of intermediate level, as evidenced by the printed books available in the market, which does not help the student build mastery of readings normally printed books that are without these markings, or proper common every day conversation. This is a defect in methodology that Dr, V Abdur Raheem realizes well, and counters this mistake in his lessons from lesson one, for he teaches comprehension by first giving the “Irab” and “Tashkeel” notation as props and crutches in the words and sentences, and then intelligently takes them away in the exercises to help the students memorize the grammar construction and vocabulary of that lesson. He introduces grammatical principles and new words naturally and selectively in the early part of the lessons to mimic how a student will find them in his independent readings and speech, and then he formally gives the principles and lists of new words at the end of the lesson, which is an very intelligent manner for introducing new words and grammatical concepts and principles, proven effective in modern didactic research.
Book Two and Book Three build on this base and lead the diligent student to complete proficiency and fluency. Various other supplementary texts, charts, documents and books are utilized in my teaching of the three Madina books, to enhance the leaning experience and expand vocabulary, comprehension, expression and style. Of course the Madina Course used at al Jami’ah al Islamiyyah of Madina Saudi Arabia which Dr. V Abdur Raheem developed also used other supplementary subjects and books, which can be seen, studied and downloaded at the official university website, with the complete four stage syllabus here in the following link:
Dr. V Abdur Raheem has taught thousands of students in his years and decades of service to the cause of Allah Most Exalted, even tens of thousands of students, basic then intermediate then advanced Arabic. Many of his students have become highly proficient and masterfully fluent, and have continued their education to complete degrees in Bachelor of Arts in various colleges of Islamic Studies and in Arabic language, and also Masters and PhD degrees. You can search more about him on the internet from various official and non official sources, may Allah preserve him in all goodness, and please see his personal blog at the following link.
I personally have five levels of students in Arabic language in my method of teaching these books as the base of my teaching platform.
00 “Trainee” Students who need to learn the Arabic alphabet; all the letters and notations; phonetics; the vowels and consonants; all in their various written and spoken forms, combinations, and linguistic rules. This rudimentary level teaches the student to recognize all the Arabic letters with their notations and long and short vowels, and then to be able to read with deliberate, measured exactness, the Book of Allah, the most sacred revelations of the Word of Allah, the Quran, or any text presented to them that has all the notations of “I’rab” and “Tashkeel” provided. All aspects of Arabic phonetics of all alphabet letters of speech are included at this level with the following: notations of “I`rab” (ar Raf’a, al Nasab, al Khafadh [au al Jarr], al Jazm) and the “Tashkeel” notations, including: Fatha; Kasra; Damma, Shadda; Sukoon; Madd; Tanween; Hamzat al Qat’a wa Hamzat al Wasal; at Takhallasu min Iltiqa`a as Sakinain; Huroof al ‘Illah; etc. This level depends upon the aptitude and diligence of the students, with some being able to master this stage in a very short period of instructional time.
01 Beginner Students, who study Book One in 32 to 40 hours of instruction, depending on circumstances and abilities, with supplementary resources, books, charts, diagrams, audio- video recordings, etc. They learn the basics as mentioned above. The famous grammar book “Al-Ajaroomiyyah” will be referred to in simplified rudimentary lesson form. They will also learn how to use Arabic Dictionaries, Lexicons, word and verb declension charts, etc
Useful supporting websites for this level include:
02 Intermediate Students, who study Book Two in 32 to 40 hours of instruction, depending on circumstances and abilities, with supplementary resources, books, charts, diagrams, audio- video recordings, etc. They build upon the basics, as mentioned above, and work to increase the level of complexity in expression. The famous grammar book “Al-Ajaroomiyyah” will be referred to in a step by step manner by mentioning examples, variations and commentaries.
03-A Advanced Students LEVEL ONE, who study Book Three (PART ONE), in 32 to 40 hours of instruction, depending on circumstances and abilities, with supplementary resources, books, charts, diagrams, audio- video recordings, etc. In this level they study the terminology of Arabic grammar and morphology, with formal grammatical analysis, and various practice exercises, and study of selected passages of “Al-Ajaroomiyyah” and other books of note.
03-B Advanced Students LEVEL TWO, who study Book Three (PART TWO) in 32 to 40 hours of instruction, depending on circumstances and abilities, with supplementary resources, books, charts, diagrams, audio- video recordings, etc. This level builds on the previous level, and brings the study to completion giving the student the ability to read, write and speak, independently and at will, according to the diligence of his revision and execution in the preceding stages of learning. Example texts from the vast selection of Arabic literature, and various genres, will be read and analyzed, insha-Allah (God-willing) in all the preceding.
Useful supporting websites for these levels will be provided in due process.
