ARB 011 is aimed at teaching the basics of Arabic reading and writing to students with little or no background in Arabic. The course is uniquely structured so that the student does not need to memorize all 28 Arabic alphabets and 112 vowel variations before learning to read and write. It builds on the older ARB 011 Diploma course with new dynamic videos and simpler testing methodology.

The course focuses on teaching proper articulation of all Arabic letters and vowels so that even beginner students can recite the Qur'an correctly. In each module, students will be given adequate time and training to read and write practice words in addition to examples from the Noble Qur'an.

The main goal of this course is to give students a reliable introduction to the fundamental concepts which form the foundations of the main fields of Islamic knowledge: Aqeedah, Tafseer, Hadeeth and Fiqh.

There are some deeds in Islam which Muslims are prohibited to perform unless they are in a state of purity, due to the greatness and the loftiness of these deeds. The purpose of this course is to teach the Fiqh of purification (Tahaarah) in the light of the Qur’aan and the authentic Sunnah of the Noble Prophet (May Blessings of Allah and Peace be upon him).

It is important to understand Islaam from a cultural point of view because the basis of much of the current turmoil within Muslim countries and conflict with their neighbors can be attributed to cultural clashes.

Contemporary Issues is a course that is designed specifically for Da’wah purposes to non Muslims as well as Muslims. The issues presented in this course are those that are oft mentioned and confrontational; those issues which may be labeled as “controversial” in our times.
