Assalamu'Alaykum

The best way to learn a language is to know its grammar, inshallah we can go through the arabic grammar step by step. the first lesson will be on NOUNS.

LESSON 1
Ad Darsul Awel


1.1 NOUNS - Al Asma

Arabic nouns are either masculine or feminine. Usually when referring to a male, a masculine noun is usually used and when referring to a female, a feminine noun is used. In most cases the feminine noun is formed by adding a special character, the ta marbuta ـة ة, to the end of the masculine noun.



examples:


Mu'alim(ah)* - Mualim -teacher


Ustath(ah)- Ustath -professor/teacher


Talib(ah) -Talib- student


Sadiq(ah) -Sadiq -friend


Muslim(ah) -Muslim -Muslim


Mubtadi(ah)- Mubtadi- beginner


Mutarjim(ah) -Mutarjim -translator












I hope i was clear, and if there are any Qs please PLEASE ask. Inshallah we will have a Quiz on this part.























note: Feminine Singular*

selam, Arabic grammar sometimes would sound so funny to not arabic speaking people, example there is grammar called:
KANA WA AKHAWATIHA

كان و اخواتها

which really means : Kana and her sisters :)

I think that for not arabic speaking people , the best way to learn arabic is to learn Arabic in arabic, so in my opinion is first step is to learn arabic letters and who to read and write in arabic, Grammar I think is the last step :coolsis:

:) A great thread, just needs a few posts from me Insha-Allah . . . Very Soon . . . :shade:

For Now:

  • Dharaba - He Hit
  • Yadhribu - He Hit's (or will hit, Depending on the context)
  • Dharbun - A Beating
  • Dhaaribun - Hitting (or the one who hit's)
  • Madhroobun - (imperfect-passive: the one who is hit)
:p Try to make a list of five words (by adding four more) from: Kataba - He Wrote . . .

:s;:

what about when it comes to nationalities i.e.

Iraq=Country to change to a nationality you make sure theres no 'Al' in the begininng, no alif, ya or tha marbuta in the end.

for male = Iraqy you add ya at the end for a male
for female = Iraqya add the ya AND tha marbuta for a female. was that confusing?

I don't mean to dampen anyone's enthusiasm here, but IMHO, Arabic should be learnt side by side with Al Quran.

And to know the Quranic Arabic is not hard. It doesn't make sense to learn Arabic just to be able to converse.

May I humbly suggest that you continue your lessons but take examples from the Quran and Hadeeth to illustrate a point?

One more thing, if you can, you should not leave the tashkeel on the words. It is these vowel signs (fathah, kasrah, dhommah and sokoon) that really gives a word its meaning.

for example:

(a) KhalaqaLlaah(oo)
(b) KhalaqaLlaah(a)

are two different sentences only by the virtue of the ending vowel signs of the word Allah.

As you know, sentence (a) means, "Allah created" (Allah as a subject)

while oppositely, sentence (b)means, "He created Allah" (Allah as an object and the subject is a hidden male represented by the past tense verb, Khalaqa).

If you wish to memorize Al Quran, knowing these basics are most essential.

Lastly, may Allah reward you for your effort. Keep it up.:)
