  1. سلام عليكم

    Is there anything similar with online quizzes in Arabic Language?

    يارك الله فيكم.
    السلام عليكم

      • Assalamu alaykum. May Allah reward you with good. I am studying arabic and would like to express my interest in arabic tests and quizzes.

      • Assalamu alaykum,
        What is the best way to learn Arabic whilst studying for a very intensive necessary degree such as dentistry and Medici e?

        • Wa ‘alaykas-salaamu wa rahmatullaah. I would think a private teacher (well-paid) who adapts to your availability, lots of listening and speaking practice, asking Allaah for success throughout. And Allaah knows best.

  2. Assalamu alaykum. May Allah bless you and reward you for your great work. Ive been listening to the recordings of as much of the classes as I can and taking the quizzes. I find it to be of great benifit and help. The classes are informative and the arabic reading and translating is very clear and easy to understand. May Allah bless and reward all involved In making this possible. Thank you very much.

  3. Assalamu alaikum.
    I stay in a place where there are no ulema or tullabul ilm to benefit from. I am trying to attend live telelinks.but if the time clashes with the salah time what do I do?
    Baarakallahu feek…

    • Wa ‘alaykas-salaamu wa rahmatullaah. For prayers with a short window of time, like Fajr and Maghrib, establish the prayer in its time, and then listen to the recording later. For prayers that have a larger window, then encourage your masjid to follow along with the live link and then establish the prayer afterwards (within the time of that prayer). And Allaah knows best.

  4. Assalaamu ‘alaikum Ustaadh,

    BaarakAllaahu feekum. For someone who understands Arabic to a level, do you advise that he focuses more on Arabic classes by Scholars or English/Translated classes by du’aat?

    And for English speakers who want to begin to follow your classes, do you advise they start from the beginning or join and follow on from the current class?

    JazaakAllaahu khayraa.

    • Wa ‘alaykas-salaamu wa rahmatullaah. As soon as one is able to gain comprehension directly from the scholars of Islaam, he focuses fully on that. Students of knowledge who teach in the West are like tayammum, once the water source becomes available, tayammum is no longer valid.

      But I warn you… There are people who ASSUME they are ready and CLAIM they can understand the scholars’ lessons (by themselves), yet when left to themselves their understanding remains unchecked and often severely flawed, and yet they go on assuming they have a good understanding. These people often deceive themselves by staying away from students’ lessons in the West, perhaps too arrogant to learn from their brothers. They often claim they too are students of knowledge, just like those teaching, no difference. The reliable students of knowledge in the West are found reading the books of the scholars in their lessons, often connecting their students directly to the Arabic text of the book, often word-by-word. So to remain connected to lessons like this does not take anyone away from the scholars, but rather in fact connects one to the scholars’ works, especially when the student of knowledge teaching is capable of checking people’s levels of understanding and explaining difficult or confusing passages. And Allaah knows best.
