Curriculum


About the Arabic Studies in the Program

Students will learn Arabic morphology (Ṣarf) and grammar (Naḥw) at an introductory level simultaneously.  

Through the text Min Kunūz al-Ṣarf, a primer on Arabic morphology, students will complete the study of the trilateral verbs (al-thulāthī al-mujarrad) along with the derived nouns (al-asmāʾ al-mushtaqqah).  In the second section, focused on Arabic grammar (Naḥw), students will complete chapters 1 and 2 of Tashīl al-Naḥw through which students will understand phrases, Nominal and Verbal sentences and their structures and a thorough understanding of Declinable (Muʿrab) and Indeclinable Nouns (Mabnī).

By the end of the program, students will develop the ability to linguistically explain and dissect basic verbs and sentences with diacritical marks.

About the Tajwīd Studies in the Program

The Qurʾān is the literal word of Allah.  The primary method of transmission of the Qurʾān has always been oral.  Each generation learns the Qurʾān from the generation before it, and this chain continues backwards until the time of the Companions, who learned it from the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) himself.

The goal of the Tajwīd Studies section of this program is to provide students with an introduction to the science of Tajwīd, then to provide the understanding of the universal rules of Tajwīd.  Accordingly, students will learn the pronunciation and articulation of each letter, timing of prolongations, and the foundational rules of recitation so they may begin the application of the established principles with a teacher thereafter, insha Allah.

About the Islamic Studies in the Program

The Islamic studies section will primarily keep its focus on Arabic to equip the student with essential Islamic knowledge. The goal of the Islamic studies section is to formally teach students ʿAqīdah (Islamic creed) and Fiqh (Islamic Law) in the modern context.

 

In ʿAqīdah, the three classical branches: Ilāhiyyāt (The Study of God), Nubuwwāt (The Function of Prophethood), Samʿiyyāt (Eschatology) will be explained. As students progress in understanding the framework of ʿAqīdah, misunderstandings regarding the Being and Qualities of Allah, criticisms leveled against the infallibility of Prophets, along with various issues pertaining to life beyond this life will be discussed and dealt with.

 

The Fiqh class will provide students confidence in the most important aspect of their daily life: Ṣalāh and its prerequisites. A detailed analysis of the Arkān (integrals), Sharāʾiṭ (preconditions), Wājibāt (mandatory acts), and Sunnah acts of Ṣalāh will be studied. Common scenarios of acts which nullify the Ṣalāh will be answered.
