Product description

Written by Prof Alan Jones, professor of Arabic at Oxford University, this work aims at teaching Arabic using only the vocabulary in the Qur'an. In forty lessons and starting with the alphabet, 'Arabic Through the Qur'an' covers the whole of Arabic grammar. Each lesson is followed by exercises and a key to the exercises is available at the end of the book. 'Arabic Through the Qur'an' gives the student a thorough understanding of Arabic grammar and a substantial vocabulary from the Qur'an including many of the often repeated verses. 'Arabic Through the Qur'an' is an indispensable aid both to those wanting to learn Arabic in order to be able to read the Qur'an and to Arabic students at university level.
