Students need to be able to read and write the Arabic script in order to learn Arabic as a language and study the Qur'an. The Arabic script is phonetically precise and easy to learn and teach. MELS books, charts, and audio materials make this process easy and enjoyable. Reading the Qur’an beautifully is both science and art. For reading the Qur’an, we recommend Graded Steps in Qur’an Reading which uses the Uthmani script of the Madinah mushaf, beautifully written by the Damascene calligrapher, Uthman Taha.
There is a Teacher’s/Self-Study Edition with full explanatory notes in English and a Student's Edition. Each unit and each line of text is numbered. This makes it easy to follow the recording and is particularly helpful for both classroom teaching and individual use. The text is recorded onto CDs. Each unit is a separate track on the CDs. You can thus go to a unit and repeat it as often as necessary. The Arabic script is a quintessential part of Islamic art. Learn the basics of calligraphy using the MELS Easy Steps in Arabic Handwriting Workbooks. See how words are formed from individual letters; trace, copy, and compose words; and write from dictation.
A summary chart shows the Arabic letters in all of their forms, with standard English equivalents and as they appear in words.
