Has the time not come for you to understand the Quran?

Learning Arabic is the key to understanding the Quran


The aim of this course is to equip learners with a capacity to read, write, speak and understand the Arabic language in gradual steps. It focuses on the study of syntax (nahw) and morphology (sarf) whilst expanding the learner’s vocabulary. Arabic language has long been a gateway to access the Islamic sciences.

This is an independent course, which can be taken on its own. Whilst also, it makes the first component of our Alimiyyah Programme.

Upon successful completion of this course, learners will be awarded with a diploma in Arabic Intensive. This accreditation will allow the learners to enrol onto our second component of the Alimiyyah Programme; the Comprehensive Islamic Studies course.

    “I joined the course to feel a little closer to Allah by trying to understand Arabic. I have been blown away by how this course has challenged and expanded my mind. Learning new concepts and applying them has been quite enjoyable. Recognising words in duas and in the Quran is an amazing feeling and brings a kind of joy and connection that I did not get just reading the English translation. I am honoured to be taught by experienced teachers that sacrifice their evenings and feel grateful to be able to study with likeminded sisters in an environment that nurtures the love of Allah and His beloved prophet SAW.

    May Allah bless and reward all involved in delivering such an intensive course and may He make us all successful in this world and the hereafter. Ameen”


    “The course so far is really good, it’s enjoyable and the structure of the course is well planned. The teachers are all very helpful and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend anyone who wants to gain valuable knowledge to join this course.”


    “The flexibility & part-time structure of the Alimiyyah programme enables me to fit the learning around my working life and allows time for essential independent study. The high quality, interactive teaching methods ensure that learners of all abilities are catered for.

    Within a year, we have covered basic rules of Arabic Grammar and Morphology allowing us to progress in our journey of translating and understanding Arabic texts. Alongside this, we have also built on our speaking skills to enhance our learning further by putting our knowledge into practice.”


    “I am currently a stay-at-home mum with a toddler and I believe the Alimiyyah course is a well designed and excellent course to be a part of.

    I appreciate the support of our teachers who have made it a thorough and well presented programme that allows me to take the time out to prioritise my learning of the deen alongside my daily life.”


    “Alhamdulillah, during the course of my first year of Alimiyah, I have found the course extremely beneficial. I have learnt Arabic grammer and syntax (Nahw), as well as other subjects like Sarf, Arabic speaking, and writing. So far, Nahw is my favourite subject because of the complexity and beauty of the subject. Overall, Alimiyah has helped me appreciate the beauty of the blessed Arabic language.”
