Fawakih, a rapidly-growing institute that teaches Qur’anic Arabic in seven chapters across the US, is now exploring whether to start offering courses in the Philadelphia area! The primary objective of Fawakih’s year-round part-time program is to enable students to learn the language of the Qur’an without interrupting their work and education, or being limited to online and summer-residential options. Classes would be offered with three instructional hours a week over the course of eigt months. Students engage Qur’anic vocabulary (mufradat al Qur’an), understand various sentence components (nahw), and dissect words and understand patterns (awzan) to gain a deeper understanding of the root meanings (sarf), all in order to gain access to the Qur’an, Prophetic teachings, and the works of great scholars.
This is an incredible opportunity to take advantage of the excellent curriculum, teachers, and resources that Fawakih provides, right here in the Philadelphia area. Fawakih’s student body currently includes over 100 students in the US. In order to help determine the interest, Fawakih has launched a poll to gauge the level of interest in studying Qur’anic Arabic in the Philadelphia area and to determine where potential students are located.
If you are interested, please click here to fill out the poll. Please also share this email with your friends, family and communities and encourage them to do the same. For far too long I have heard a number of Muslims bemoan the lack of knowledge-opportunities in the Philadelphia area. Now’s your chance to change that. If you have any questions, feel free to visit Fawakih‘s web site or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org, or to Zaid Mohiuddin, at email@example.com.
This is one Canadian teacher’s view on the root cause students struggle with learning Classical Qur’anic Arabic. Whether or not you agree with his views, I think it’s fair that we take him seriously since he has been teaching students for over 10 years both institutionally at the madrasah and online. Here’s the full PDF. Also see the video.
