Simplifying Arabic Grammar by Mahmoud Ziyada


Simplifying Arabic Grammar by Mahmoud Ziyada

You want to learn this language and I want to help you in this endeavor.
The Arabic language is not very difficult as said. In reality, it is a very rich language. Many of the problems students face in studying Arabic are not to do with the language itself. There are other reasons for this difficulty. I hope to be able to help you in your study of Arabic. This book has been developed and written to guide you through some of the basic principles that will give you a head start in mastering the Arabic language.
I have tried to steer away from the commonly found ‘dry’ methods of teaching grammatical principles. Arabic grammar is not simply a set of mathematical and logical principles that the student must memorise.
Furthermore, it needs to be understood that grammar in itself is not the goal, rather it is a means to the understanding of the language and using it correctly.
The methods which promote grammar as the goal and turn it into a mathematical science have many negative effects from a number of angles:
∙ they waste the time of the student exhausting his/her efforts for limited benefit.
∙ they make the study complicated, therefore the student finds the work difficult, and this leads to feelings of hopelessness to the extent that we hear statements such as the Arabic language being complex and difficult to learn.
Achieving true benefit from any language requires dedication and practice.
In this book I have tried to follow simple and effective methods in explaining these principles.

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.

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.
