UPDATE: CLASS IS CLOSED
Ustadh Abdus Shakur Brooks is starting a class in classical Arabic covering the famous text Al-Ajurrumiyyah written by an 8th century scholar, by the name of Ibn Ajurrum. This text is pretty much used universally as a primary study of Arabic grammar. It covers the necessary elements of the language one needs to know in order to understand Arabic sentence structures which is the key to sound comprehension for other religious sciences.
In this class, only the Arabic text will be used along with a verbal translation and explanation in English with some Arabic. Focus will be given to understanding technical terms as they are understood in Arabic, rather than using English terms as equivalents, which hinders the student from comprehending the full spectrum of the terms exactly how the Arabic Grammarians did.
All of the live classes will be recorded and downloadable for students. As well, students will have access to an e-studentroom which will consist of a Q&A blog and other features which allow them direct contact with the teacher.Also a pdf. file of the text will be provided for all students.
To benefit from this class a person should at least be able to read Arabic language and have some exposure to the basic elements of Arabic grammar, such as recognizing the difference between a basic verb “f’il” and a noun “ism” for example. Also one should have some ability in writing Arabic as well.
The aim of the class is to provide the students with the tools to help them understand classical Arabic texts comprehensively.
Each session will consist of two 30-40 minute lessons with a 10 minute break in between.
