Hear what some students are saying about their experience with this course:
“I find the Arabic course with Ustadh Farid to be very thorough in its content and I am able to follow the course easily due to the comfortable pace that is set. I am able to manage my time because the live session is only once a week and therefore I can organize myself to do my homework when it suits my schedule. Even after the first few classes of part 1 I noticed a difference when reading Quran; I was able to understand full sentences.”
– Rookaiya N.
“This four part course to assist in understanding The Quran in Arabic is excellent. It is based on an established course text with plenty of practice exercises to reinforce learning for rapid progress. The teacher, Ustadh Farid, clearly has expert knowledge of Classical Arabic and his delivery of live sessions and answering questions during them is wonderful. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anybody who yearns to start experiencing the beauty of the Glorious Quran.”
