The Tamhīd Summer Arabic Program is designed for students who wish to grasp the fundamentals of Qur’ānic Arabic in a condensed but comprehensive 6-week course. Students will study the language of the Qur’ān while spending time in the company of nurturing ‘ulamā and other students of the sacred sciences. Tamhīd focuses extensively on reading, writing, listening, and speaking. A systematic syllabus exposes one to the theoretical disciplines of grammar and morphology, and time-tested primers lay a strong vocabulary base on which one can build. In addition to the Arabic language, students will also delve into a detailed study of purification and salāh.
WHAT YOU GET
The program is designed to give students a good foundation in Arabic. They will begin to develop the appreciation of the intricacies of the language of the Qur’an and directly benefit from the eternally relevant Word of Allah ﷻ. Students are in class for four-and-a-half hours daily, with an additional minimum three hours of homework. Periodic quizzes and tests ensure students are grasping the concepts and retaining the new vocabulary. Students who excel in the program may continue to DarusSalam Seminary's flagship Tanwir Intensive 1 year Arabic and Islamic Studies Program.
Consistent with DarusSalam Seminary's philosophy of focusing on both education and upbringing hand-in-hand (al-ta‘lim wa ‘t-tarbiyah), along with being intellectually stimulating, the classroom environment is also conducive to spiritual growth and adherence to the Sunnah, synergically nurturing and providing food for both heart and mind. An entire class period is dedicated to instilling Islamic morals and ethics (tazkiyah). The Summer Arabic Intensive is uniquely staffed with dedicated teachers who genuinely care about the students’ development and progress. Teachers are always there to help students mature academically and spiritually.
