IMPORTANT GUIDELINES

Prerequisite: You should be able to read Arabic text. Duration: 9 hours (Preferably in 2 to 3 sessioss) Some Guidelines for using the Short Course Effectively: We will learn with love, smiles, and relaxation. This is a thoroughly interactive short course therefore listen attentively, and participate continuously. We are practicing so there is no problem even if you do mistakes. Nobody learns without first committing mistakes. The one who practices more will get more even if he/she commits mistake. Remember the golden rule: I listen, I forget. I see, I remember. I practice, I learn. Remember the 3 levels of learning: o o o Listening (without paying attention). Your ear hears noises. Listening carelessly or with doubt. Listening interactively; listening with HEART; responding immediately to the p oints.

1. At least FIVE minutes recitation (for the beginner) of the Qur'an from the Mushaf. 2. At least FIVE minutes recitation of the Qur'an from memory during activities such as walking. Two for Study: 3. At least FIVE minutes study of the Word-forWord translation (or from this book, for the beginners). 4. 30 seconds study of the vocabulary booklet or sheet, preferably before or after every Salah or any other suitable intervals. ALWAYS carry the vocabulary booklet with you till you complete the course. Two for Listening and talking to others: 5. Listening to a tape which contains these recitations with word-by-word meanings (in your car while driving and at your home while doing household chores). You can record the contents of this course yourselves into a tape, in case a recorded tape is not available. 6. Talking to your colleague for 1 minute every day regarding the lesson (if you are studying it in a class). The last one for using it: 7. Recitation of the last 14 Surahs in rotation in the Sunan and Nawafil of daily Salah. And two more homeworks on Du'aa (i) for self ; and (ii) for others that Allah helps us all to fulfill our duties towards Qur'an. And lastly: The best way to learn is to teach. And the best way to teach someone is to turn him into a teacher. About the Logo: DPPR: Direct, Personal, Planned, Relevant

Space after MOTIVATIONAL AND LEARNING TIPS is left blank for you to take notes and add other things to it based on your experience. If the space is not enough, you may use back side of the paper. Each lesson is followed by Grammar. Grammar contents is not directly related with the main lesson simply because it will be too complicated to analyze grammatical aspects of the lesson in the first class. It may require separate Grammar teaching before we start studying Surahs. Therefore, Grammar lessons build up your Arabic Grammar in parallel to vocabulary that you learn in the main lesson. DONT FORGET TO DO THE 7 HOMEWORKS AS WILL BE EXPLAINED DURING THE COURSE. And MOST IMPORTANT of all: Dont forget to carry that vocabulary sheet in your pocket/purse and refer to it at least 5 times during a day. The 7 Homeworks are: Two for Tilawat:

While Making plans


When it comes to group or Fiqh issues or any new idea, then please check with scholars before you mention it to others or implement it. Then what is the real area for common people like us?

GRAMMAR: Pronouns (with examples) For the first 3 times, practice these 6 forms with translation, i.e., just show and say he, they, you, you all, I, we. Since you will be showing what you mean by your hand, you dont need to translate each of them after 3 cycles. Just say . That is the immediate benefit of using TPI, among many others. Continue the above steps without translating these words. Just Five minutes of your practice using TPI will make the learning of these six words and many other things extremely easy!!! Also note that while practicing, dont worry about learning the terminologies. Just focus on these six words and their meanings. He is a Muslim. They are Muslims. You are a Muslim. You are Muslims. I am a Muslim. We are Muslims.

Note that when a preposition comes with a verb or a verbal noun, its meaning changes according to the verb with which it comes and the language to which it is translated. Use TPI here too.

Each language may have its own perposition style for a given verb to express something. For example:

The above 3 sentences in 3 different languages express the same fact, i.e., I believed, but the preposition in each language is different.

GRAMMAR (4 tips about Prepositions): 1. Same thing is expressed in different languages using different prepositions. For example: I believed in Allah; /Z / Z< Z O (in urdu)

The above 3 sentences in 3 different languages express the same fact, i.e., I believed, but the preposition in each language is different. For the same language, a preposition may be or may not be required depending upon the verb being used. Example: I said to him; I told him.

2. Sometimes, a preposition may be there in Arabic but not required in English (or any other) language. For example, entering the religion of Allah Forgive me 3. Sometimes, a preposition may not be there in Arabic but required in English. I ask forgiveness of Allah and have mercy on me 4. Change of preposition leads to change in the meanings. Examples: In English: get; get in; get out; get off; get on In Arabic:

Depending upon the person (3 , 2 , or 1 ), gender (masculine or feminine), and number (singular or plural), ending words of the corresponding forms of the past tense change. By this change we know whether this verb (past tense) is singular or plural, 3 , 2 or 1 person, and feminine or masculine. To remember this feature, here is an example. If you are standing on a road, you can see the backside of a departed car, truck or jeep. A look at the backside is enough for you to tell which type of car has gone. So, remember the endings for past tense forms: (

The same procedure of fingers pointing can be used for practicing the different conjugations of Imperfect tense verbs also. To distinguish between the past tense and the present tense, you may pronounce all the past tense forms and move your right hand at a lower level while pointing towards right, in front, or yourself. For present tense, raise your right hand at a higher level and pronounce the present tense verbs with a higher pitch.

There was a time when Muslims used to give knowledge, art, technology, to the world. Now it is the opposite, because we left the Quran. Remember to give. When you say (doer), show it with your right hand as if you are giving, i.e., doing somthing.

Doer. The one who is affected. To do, act (of doing)

When you say ( the one who is affected), show it with your right hand as if you are receiving something, i.e., affected by the help. (to do), show it with your right hand by making a fist raised high as if you are showing the power of action.

So, don't stop till you complete 200 hours...


MashaAllah you have completed the short course. You have embarked upon a beautiful, important, exciting, and enriching journey. Dont stop here. If you have reached till here, inshaAllah you can continue till end. The short course you have covered was a brief version of the course: Understand Quran The Easy Way!!! Following are the features of this course which will take you further ahead:
1. 2. 3. 4. A course of approximately 25 hours to help you learn around 300 words which occur approx. 55,000 times (out of a total of approx. 78000 Qur'anic words; representing 70% of Qur'anic vocabulary in this sense) in the Quran. Spare just 25 minutes everyday, and insha-Allah you are on your way to realizing the dream. Start the understanding of Quran using what you recite everyday!!! No need to look for any other text. Immediately start realizing the benefits in your prayers and supplications, and thereby improve the relationship with Allah. Practice what you learnt right form day one. Start practicing what you learn by talking to Allah in Arabic with understanding! Each session is interactive, if conducted in a group!!! Every participant has full and continuous chance to be involved in all the activities (Spoken Arabic, Grammar, and Word-for-word translation) throughout the session. Each session has 3 different activities, which keeps the participants alive throughout the session. Learn at least one spoken Arabic sentence in each session. Learn basic Arabic Grammar as well as almost all important verb patterns by devoting just 8 to 10 minutes in each session. Learning Arabic Grammar perhaps has never been so easy and simple. A new approach to the practice of grammar, i.e., TPI, Total Physical Interaction. Think it, see it, say it, and show it. One of the most effective and easiest techniques to overcome the most difficult part of learning the faala table (conjugation of a verb). This is the lesson where generally people give up learning Arabic. With TPI, it becomes just the opposite, i.e., most exciting and interesting part. Every time you practice a grammar session (5 to 7 minutes), you are shown how closer you are to the understanding of Quran. Therefore, it becomes a session of love and excitement rather than that of boring drills. Learn interesting examples/false links to remember some of the odd rules of grammar.

5. 6.

7.

8. 9.

10. Revise the whole learning in SPECIAL 10 sessions (at the end) where all frequently occurring words in the Quran are listed separately. 11. To remember important words, each word/verb that you have learnt is listed with an example for you to practice, remember, and retain. Every time you forget an important new word, you are given a context for it to recall. 12. Learn all important verb patterns thoroughly along with examples from the material covered in the first 50 sessions. 13. 16 quizzes and 2 exams (in the WORKBOOK) to help you evaluate your progress and encourage you to revise and continue. 14. With the CD (produced by the Academy), participate along with the audience throughout these sessions. You dont have to wait for another sitting for practice. Practice right there! A CD containing mp3 files of the complete course (60 sessions) is also available. Recently, a brief recorded version of the course (4 hours) is also produced. Actually this is a basic training course for every Muslim. It contains those parts which are practiced everyday by a Muslim. Therefore this course is will have direct impact on his life. It will make his regular worship more efficient and effective. Simultaneously he will get the confidence that he can learn the Quran very easily. In view of this, this course can be an excellent basic resource for every Muslim family, school, or organization.
