Its fusha :D

I don't think you want to deal with dialacts yet since it might be confusing :blink:

(salam)

(salam)

NO DIALACTS!!!!!!!

DIALACTS are not right ARABIC.....DIALACTS depend on countries and no Arabic itself.....We will deal with Fus'ha ONLY inshallah.

Selam alaycom,

Hassan, I suggest you teach consonants with the fat'ha, dhumma and kasra, and then with aleph, wow and ya..... as well as how to write the consonants joined: in the beginning of the word, middle of the word, and at the end. Then move on to haroof asshamsia wa al qamaria...... I'll try to dig up my old language institute Arabic book. It was pretty useful.

Writing and reading is one thing. Understanding is another. Most words come from 'roots' or base words that have 3 letters.

As well, there are many pronouns in Arabic, I think 13 if I remember correctly. The Arabic grammar is a lot like Spanish: nouns are masculine, fem, singular, plural, etc.. and the adjectives must match and go after the nouns. Conjugating verb tenses is quite a task, since there are so many pronouns, however, they follow rules, not exceptions and irregular like in English. (There are some exceptions in plurals though.) Not to discourage anyone, but sentence structure and grammar are very hard. The best example of fus'ha or proper Arabic is the Holy Quran.

Good luck, and may Allah increase your knowledge.

Peace,

Um Ali

Is this Fus'ha or Dialect?

(salam)

A good question, sis. It looks dialectual/conversational. I'm looking not only for fus-ha, but only language for religious purposes. I don't want to pick up conversational aspects until I am more regular in study of religious texts.

assalaamu `alaykum

Brother, I have a serious suggestion for you. Remember the first book that you started from for Qur'an recitation class? Um Ali's method is actually emplyed by it, and it is an excellent way to teach Arabic to us by way of repeating patterns. If you have a place to do it, try to get a recording of someone pronouncing those sounds, or record it yourself for us. That way, you can work us over it in a systematic way.

    • Hello brothers and sisters. I feel like I am in dire need of help. My hatred and the feeling of jealously towards my relatives and slowly now, towards others are increasing. I have lived a lonely difficult life, where I wasn't allowed to communicate with others much. Wasn't allowed to go out much. Basically say at home alone most of the time. I watch my cousins get everything they want. I'm not jealous over this but, the fact they travel a lot. Something I've never done. I wish to go to hajj and I wish to go to Iraq especially, so I can meet my grandfather. My grandmother passed away, so I never had a chance to meet her. I had a chance to go to Iraq this year, excited to meet my grandfather. I was meant to go with my relatives, but they had secretly planned everything, excluding me out. Which made me sad, as I know they are not fans of Iraq, where as I love the beauty and the history of Iraq. Even though I've never been, I know in my heart that its a unique place. My one chance is gone, I'm afraid I've lost my chance to meet my grandfather as I heard he is sick. I can't go unless for another five years. Which breaks my heart, and now I have tried to push away these negative feelings I've had for them. But now its just, worse. I can't help but think bad thoughts. I just don't want my heart to turn dark, as I've retreated myself from communication towards others and stopped caring for everyone as I'm continuously being betrayed occasionally. I don't really have anyone a around me to teach me or help me Islamically. I'm trying hard to be patient and humble and forgiving and kind. I'm losing that side of me. But I'm so alone. I'm reading the Quran and hadith's, but I'm not sure as to what I should be reading. There are other things before that triggered all of this, but I'll end up writing a book on here. I would appreciate anything. Please and thank you.
