Vocabulary of the Holy Quran

Vocabulary of the Holy Quran

Vocabulary of the Holy Quran

An extremely useful dictionary of the words in the Qur’an, compiled on the basis of their three-letter roots, allowing one to infer the meanings of almost all the different Qur’anic words by recognizing their root meaning. Examples of uses of the words in the Qur’an are also presented.
The vocabulary of the Quran. Qamus alfaz al-quran al Karim is a valuable asset for the scholars of the holy Quran. It meets a long felt need and fills the lacuna in this field. It is at once a dictionary of the words of the Quran and also a grammatical guide to their roots. It treats the words in their various verbal forms. Copious examples of the verses of the Quran are given. The aim of the respected compiler is that the book should be of advantage to the English speaking Muslims of the world who’s mother tongue is not Arabic. The compiler has consulted the reputed commentaries on the Quran. We do not find any other dictionary of comparable volume ad content. An appendix lists the roots of the word’s to facilitate those who are not aware of the Arabic etymological system of the words.
The Compiler: Dr. Abdullah Abbas Al-Nadwi is a graduate of the Nadwatul Ulema and an MA &PhD in Linguistic Philosophy, He is advisor to the Rabitah al-Alam al-Islamiyyah, Makkah, Member of the Liguistic Society Cambride and Professor at Umm al-Qura University Makkah.

هذا قاموس لألفاظ القرآن الكريم باللغة الإنجليزية، وضع على الترتيب الجذري، فيه شرح للكلمات الواردة في القرآن الكريم من حيث معناها وسياقها في الآيات، وأشارات ترمز الى وضع كل كلمة من ناحية الاشتقاق وموقعها من الرفع والنصب والجر، كما يوجد فيه بعض التفاصيل من دون تطويل عن الأنبياء السابقين الذين ورد ذكرهم فيه والأماكن التي أشار إليها القرآن العظيم.

Tajweed Rules of the Qur’an


Tajweed Rules of the Qur’an
أحكَـام تَـجويد القـرآن

By Allah’s grace. this is the second part of what shall be. insha’ Allah. a three part series on the rules of tajweed of the Qur’an. for the recitation of Hafs from ‘Aasim by the way of Ash-Shaatibbyyah الشاطبية. The book is intended to be a guide for non-Arabs with a good grasp in English in studying tajweed.
This book explains the concept of the accent (an-nabr) in the recitation of the Glorious Quran and the conditions of its use. it also defines and explains the important chapter on the characteristics of the letters, velarization and attenuation (tafkheemتفخيم and tarqeeq ترقيق} are covered in this part, as well as the concept of the two alike. the two similar. the two close, and the two far and the rules for idghaam إدغام and ith-haar إظهار in these different relationships. A brief introductory to grammar terms is made in this book to assist the student in understanding the last chapter. that of the connecting hamzah (harazah al-wasl همزة الوصل).

The explanations of the different subjects are in English, and the Arabic terms are translated. This is to assist the student in understanding and encourage them to learn the Arabic definitions and terms. This book should facilitate non-Arabs studying tajweed whether they are in a classroom with explanations taught in Arabic or in English.

This book cannot replace the importance of reciting to and being corrected by a trained teacher of tajweed. instead it is a guide and an aid in understanding the concepts of tajweed. the application can only be refined by recitation and correction.

Learn The Language of the Holy Qur’an


Learn The Language of the Holy Qur’an

This work represents a life-long efforts in leaching Arabic and developing educational material based upon the Qur’an- This textbook along with its companion volume The Vocabulary of The Qur’an (A dictionary of the Quranic Arabic words and terms) constitutes a major contribution of the author to the teaching of Arabic language and understanding of the Qur’an.

This revised and enlarged edition is a major improvement on its previous publication- Since its first publication the textbook had not been revised and a need was felt for a thorough revision to make some necessary corrections, incorporate new ideas by the author and discerning readers, make further additions, improve type setting quality and graphic presentation and to make the transliteration system consistent with the present standard of the Library of Congress System,

Understand Arabic in 12 coloured Tables


Understand Arabic in 12 coloured Tables

Introduction : Is this Book for You?
These lessons are created for people who already know how to read Arabic with vowel markings – but can’t understand it, and will allow you to understand Arabic within 2 weeks (if you’re a really good memorizer), or a month (if you’re a slower memorizer) inshaa’ Allah. However you will continuously have to refer to these tables for revision for maximum benefit.

How does it work ?
I have made some coloured Learning Tables, you have to memorize them. And we move onto the next lesson. Simple (smile.)
Also note, you may find the order of the lessons abit strange (i.e. see the Contents page – I have made the 3 letter Patterns lesson earlier than 1 letter words lesson), but that is done to make it easier for you to digest the language.

Arabic Layout :
Arabic is made up of; 1 Letter words, 2 Letter words, 3 letter words, and sometimes 4 letter words. I will work gradually in presenting 1 Table per lesson, you have to memorize the table as much as you can. I will then briefly give an explanation of that Table. Then we move onto the next lesson. I will then give a practise Test after a few lessons.

After 2 weeks :
Once you have memorized the tables altogether, you will have got a strong feel of how Arabiclanguage works. This will make it extremely easy for you to understand the language when reading and hearing; Qur’an, Sunnah, or an Arabic speech etc.

Last Advice :
You have to make du’a (prayer) to Allah if you really want to learn Arabic, and Allah will help you. It worked for me, alhamdulillah!

Attributes Of Allah: Know Your Creator


Attributes of Allah – Know your Creator

Allah is the name of the Divine Being Who exists necessarily by Himself, comprising all the Attributes of perfection. Allah is an underived word – it neither has a feminine nor a plural; it has never been used for anything except the True God. The Arabs too, during pre-islamic days, did not give this name to any of their idols. As a proper noun and a name, it cannot be translated into any other language. The word god is the translation of the word Ilaha which is not a personal name but the name of a status or designation like president, chairman, king, etc., held by persons having different names. There is only one Ilaha and that is ALLAH. In the Quran nothing is mentioned about His form (shape or size); He is therefore beyond human imagination but His functions have been mentioned as His Attributes and we are required to recognize Him only through His Most Excellent Attributes.
In this work an attempt has been made to explain the attributes of Allah ( S.W.T. )
( اَلاَسْمَآءُالْحُسْنَى ) through associated words and their opposites used in the Holy Quran.
