Default other learning material

Assalamu Alaikum

Could anyone tell me where i can down load some more material that will support my learning. I already have the Handouts, but is there anything additional to this that may be of benefit.

JazakAllahu Khairun

Different institutions or authors of Arabic books teach Arabic differently. Since, we are just beginners, perhaps it is better for us to stick to LQToronto materials only. This will ensure that our learning is consistent and we are not confused. So, I would suggest you remain faithful to all that you get from this site and the site of Dr. V. Abdur Rahim.

Once we finish all three books and the advanced books suggested by LQtoronto, then we can venture into other materials.

As for practicing, I believe solving the exercises and checking your answers are tremendously helpful, and all these are downloadable in this site.

Good luck.

Salams Tanweer

Thank you for your wourds of advise and i totally agree and understand what you mean.
But i was just wondering if there were other reading materials that could benefit us that are suitable to each level of our progress, that is consistant with the methods in which we are being taught. I.e extra lessons in regards to mudath, mudath alaihi, then plural words , etc.

Kind regards

Suls82

Sal‚mou'aleikoum wa rahmatoull‚h wa barak‚touh,

what you've said brother Tanweer is, for me, only "partly true".

Read other materials or sources always did help me a lot in understanding concepts in any matter, especially in arabic.
Quite often it happened to me that i read a course about a topic or about a notion that i do not completely get. But after reading the same topic from another source, the latter make me understand things that i did not completely get from the first source i had read, and it also removes part of or all missunderstandings. This is, I guess, because you read about the same notion but with different words and ways of explaining. Someone may find an excellent course on topic X in source 1 wich is not well explained in source 2, or which you did not completely understand in the way source 1 explains, for instance. I mean you have many "externalities" that make your knowledge stronger by reading different material.

That's what we usually call "complementarity". Of course, one has to put into order and into perspective what he read from the different sources. And by doing so, things become even more clear, more structured, you then draw up a kind of a map, making links between what you've learnt so far.

Of course, Medina's books from our Sheikh (hafiDhadhou Allah) is set up on a particular methodology of learning (the best i've ever seen in Arabic, and that can also be generalize in other field), and one has to strive to follow it till the end. But again, reading other materials, makes yourself asking questions, makes you searching for answers, and so...and makes you stronger.

That's of course the way "I" proceed in my learning.
In any case, brother suls82, we are not allowed to post other materials which are not from Medina's books in the LQToronto. Nevertheless, if you need some extra-materials, I have plenty of. So, mail me if you're still interested.

Salam brother Benss,
I understand your point.

Actually, I am a beginner. I often get confused when I read materials from other books or websites. For example, some teachers totally delete the endings of nouns. So instead of Kitabun or Muslimatun, they write Kitab, Muslimah etc. Some websites teach local Arabic (Egyptian etc) and not the Classical Arabic of the holy Quran. A beginner like me can easily be misled by these materials.

That's why I discouraged brother suls82..

I hope there is no misunderstanding.

Are your extra materials similar to our textbook ? Then, I am interested to get them too if, and only if, no copyright is violated. But how do I mail you ?

There are like 10-15 or so extra books by the same sheikh available online, these books together with the madinah arabic course make up the 2 year arabic syllabus in the university of medinah.

They are linked to on this forum.

Some links only give some of the books, but if you check some of the other sections you will find 1-2 online websites that has all of them, the first ones are fairly simple then they build up to more advanced vocab/language

Slams Brothers for the beneficial answers and input. Brother Benss well explained and i guess that was the answer i was looking for.

But one question how to i mail you Bro?

Brother Abdullah Al-Narwej, thank you also for your input, i thought as much that there must be other books by the author that support our learnig, particlarly as it is taught at university level.

Could you tell me how to access those other books

JazakAllahu Khair

Sal‚mou'aleikoum wa rahmatoull‚h wa barak‚touh,

sorry brothers, i thought my mail was available on my profile. So here it is:

b e n s s 1 3 [at] h o t m a i l . f r

(I put spaces between letters so that any malicious software use it. At least it diminishes the risk of being corrupted).

Brother Tanweer, i understand your point of view, there is no misunderstanding at all, don't worry . And as I said, you're partly right, some materials are definitely not really usefull (as the one you've mentioned).
Just to be clear about what i'm talking about, and what i've said:

when I said "materials", i'm not refering to such a beautiful methodology as of Sheikh AbduRahman books (May Allah reward him). I'm talking about materials such as pdf files and other stuff that i've found looking around on the web tha last couple of years and that deals with notions we have either already seen or will see with Medina's books methodology. So, this material is in a way, and as I said, an opportunity to read something that you probably already know more or less, or that you will be taught in medina's book (i still did not finished book 3), but it has the benefit to see how notions in arabic grammar are explained in another short way other than medina's books.

Hope i was clear.

Also, brother Abdullah Al-Narwej, the extra books from faDilatou sheikh Abderahman, are as you said "extra-book" (most of them, as far as i know) that is that they required for the reader a certain level in arabic grammar to follow them. So, i don't think it's what suls82 really need. Isn't it ?
As brother Assif already said in his video lectures, some of these extra book are in the continuity or medina's books, so that they deals with Quran and aHadith for instance.

Anyway, you have my mail now. So, do not hesitate, and please introduce youself first in your mail, so that i'll be able to know who you are and so that i'll be sure that someone is not using my mail improperly .


P.S: again, i'm definitely not understimating the unvaluable, priceless medina's books and its way of teaching arabic. I can't imagine the amount of work provided by our Respected Sheikh to produce such an excellent book. As i've said in my previous post, it's the best series of arabic book i've ever read. It will escort me untill my death, inchaAllah. I've start teaching it to some of my friends, and hope i'll teach it to my children inchaAllah, if it's Allah's will to offer me children. The method is so fluid, so sweet, so fun to follow, al-hamdulill‚h. I really start understanding deeply arabic (thanks to Allah) by following rigorously brother Assif advices when teaching us The best of the best book for learning arabic golden rules. It also allows me to read more self-confidently other materials. May Allah help us, and make our deeds only for his sake, Alone.
