The Beginners Arabic Reading book is a step-by-step guide to begin reading the Qur'ān. The book introduces the Arabic alphabets, gradually demonstating their beginning, middle and end shapes and how these are used in Arabic words. The book covers all the essential vowel marks and shows the students how they are used in simple to complex Arabic words commonly found in the Qur'an. After finishing the book, a student is expected to be ready to begin reciting the Qur'an.
The purpose of this book is to introduce children to the time-tested methodologies of learning the Arabic alphabet. As the title of the book indicates, it is a step-by-step guide to start reading the Qur’ān. The materials are presented in a sequential manner to ensure that children learn the necessary tools to read Qur’ānic Arabic in the shortest possible time. The book has 29 lessons. Ideally, a Sunday school should cover each lesson on two Sundays, thus, taking about 58 classes, or two school years to finish the book. A full-time school or home schooling parents will require much less time to finish the book with their children.
