Essentials of Quranic Arabic [2 Volumes]
This two-volume series is a guide for those who want to understand the language of the Qur’an, and yearn to listen to it with comprehension. The methodology of this book is different from others in that conversational Arabic and non-Qur’anic vocabulary are not focused on. Instead, there is a keen emphasis on mastering the key grammar principles of the Qur’an alongside “high-yield” Qur’anic vocabulary.
The second volume is a continuation of study from the first volume. It focuses on several advanced and intermediate Arabic grammar important in a higher level of Qur’inic study. This includes topics in Morphology, Irregular Verbs, and other topics found in Intermediate Arabic Grammar study. Similar to the first volume, numerous examples from the Qur’an have been given so that our focus is maintained. “Review Questions” are included in the back of this book on the chapters that have been detailed. The last three chapters are focused on more advanced discussions relative to Qur’anic Arabic such as Eloquence (Balagha) and the Inimitability of the Qur’an (I’jaz al-Qur’an)
