Meanings change over time. The Ilm Al-Quran course takes you back in time so you can see how the Arabic words were used during the time of revelation. Language changes over time, new words are coined, words previously coined take on new meanings. This has become a source of much misunderstanding in terms of the Quran. Translations unfortunately do not take these changes into consideration. The course is designed to teach Arabs and non-Arabs alike. Seven of the most renowned lexicons, such as Kitab al-Ayn, and Mufradat Raghib are used to get a more precise meaning of each word.
Life is Short, I Don't Have Much Time
The course only consists of 60 lessons, including 3 application books. If studied full time, the course can be comfortably completed in 4 months with a total of 75-100 hours spent on lessons and practice. It applies the content-based method of language acquisition, practicing over 3,000 ayat of the Quran with the student to ensure proficiency in practice. Just by completing book 1 you will gain a wealth of knowledge.
We Hate Grammar and We Hope You Do Too
Grammar tends to chase people away from learning language. Our course uses grammar on a need to know basis. People do not learn grammar in order to comprehend and speak in their own languages, so there is no reason they should heavily invest in it to learn another language. Children know close to no grammatical rules. They simply apply them naturally. We have tried to minimize a student's interaction with grammatical principles in the beginning while gradually increasing the number as the course progresses.
