    I can’t learn Arabic on my own

    Report bad ads?

    I feel I was born to learn Arabic and study Di’n, however, there isn’t a avenue for the where I live. I can not afford a teacher and I need a partner, fellow student and mentor. What should I do? I am practically doomed.

    Asalamualykum

    Don't worry. You can use the internet to teach yourself. Watch this brother on youtube who teaches tajweed and the recitation of arabic. He also explains the rules and goes at a slow pace. I hope this helps. Insha Allah.

    Re: I can’t learn Arabic on my own

    There are also private tutors that will teach you online

    one site you can use is www.italki.com

    it is pretty inexpensive when compared to formal language courses. There are also youtube videos, free materials online, etc.

    Arabic is pretty challenging for a western person, in that it is not an Indo-European language. I am learning Farsi right now with my son, and the hardest part is the alphabet and some of subtle differences between sounds (the Persian alphabet has 32 characters). But the language is Indo-European and follows similar grammatical forms to European languages (those languages also have borrowings from Farsi). Take the word "naval" for instance, which comes from the word for ship in Farsi ناو(nâv).

    The grammar of Farsi is actually much easier than German! It is genderless and a lot more consistent. German can have some wild syntactical constructions, and memorizing all the gender forms is hard (but pronunciation and speaking is pretty easy).

    Once I get a handle on Farsi, I will tackle Arabic. It is a life goal to become proficient in Arabic.

    Not many people know, but English has gender as well. Take the word "Aviator" for instance. A female Aviator is an Aviatrix. A ship is referred to with the pronoun "she" or "her" But English is a strange language because of all the influence of other languages upon it.

    Thats a French loanword "Aviator/Aviatrix". Apart from the French loanwords English doesnt have so much gender seperation. There are only He/She His/Her etc..

    I can’t learn Arabic on my own

    My friend, what is missing, is your concentration, focus, ambition and strong will to study anything. If you put in your mind “I want to be smart, intelligent like never before” then if God wishes, the Arabic language is imprinted in your mind, and you’ll finally be able to write and speak in Arabic, and you have to be very patient. No one can put something your head, you have to work for it. Maybe I can be your teacher if you want to and I can teach you, in the easy way I can.

    No i would not recommend an adult male teaching an adult female. This goes against the sharia.

    You might have skipped the gender part of a person's profile but the thread creator is a sister. You suggested you could help and teach. I am sure with very good intentions but this goes against our teachings as we are all aware insha Allah.

    also check it plz:

    ''Apart from well-known figures, including Ayesha Siddiqa ra, the daughter of Abu Bakr ra, the grandeur of forgotten scholars is rekindled in the work. Fatima Al Batayahiyyah, an 8th century scholar taught the celebrated work of Sahih al Bukhari in Damascus. She was known as one of the greatest scholars of that period, demonstrated especially during the Hajj when leading male scholars of the day flocked from afar to hear her speak in person. A beautiful picture is painted of her in an Islam that has been long forgotten – a distinguished, elderly woman teaching her students for days on end in the Prophet’s mosque itself. Whenever she tired, she would rest her head on the Prophet’s grave and continue to teach her students as the hours wore on. A n y w o m a n visiting the Prophet’s mosque now will know the frustration of not even being able to see the blessed Prophet’s grave, let alone rest their head on its side wall.

    Another, Zainab bint Kamal, taught more than 400 books of Hadith in the 12th century. Her “camel loads” of texts attracted camel loads of students. She was a natural teacher, exhibiting exceptional patience which won the hearts of those she taught. With such a towering intellectual reputation, her gender was no obstacle to her teaching in some of the most prestigious academic institutes in Damascus.
    Then there was Fatimah bint Muhammad al Samarqandi, a jurist who advised her more famous husband on how to issue his fatwas. And Umm al-Darda, who as a young woman, used to sit with male scholars in the mosque.''..........
