Abu Darda (RA) narrated that Rasool Allah (SAW) said, “Should I not tell you of such a thinga which are the best and purest deeds in the court of your Lord, high in ranks (darajat), better for you then spending gold and silver (in Allah’s path), and better than slaying the neck of the enemy during war? The Sahaba said, “Yes, Oh Rasool Allah! (SAW) .” He (SAW) said, “It is Zikr of Allah.” (Tirmizi)
Arabic classes are being run at two levels, basic and advanced. The teaching method is to learn Arabic and then to apply the knowledge on translating Arabic texts.
The basic Arabic class is working with the traditional Al-Madina course books.
The advanced Arabic class uses New Arabic Grammar (by Haywood and Nahmad) and Nahv books as the base text, applying their knowledge in translating books of Fiqh, e.g. Noor ul Idah (basic Hanafi fiqh) and other Arabic literature to english, as well as the translation of Hadith.
These classes are held twice a week Monday – Friday 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
