Arabic Grammar for Beginners Based on Al-Ajrumiyyah by Abdul Aleem
ARABIC GRAMMAR FOR BEGINNERS BASED ON AL-AJRUMIYYAH
What is the Ajrumiyyah?
AI-Ajrumiyyah is a classical Arabic grammar book written in the 13th century by the Moroccan scholar Muhammad ibn Da’ud as-Sanhaji. It is considered to be the go-to book for beginners to learn Arabic grammar across the Arab world.
I am just getting started with Arabic. Is this book suitable for me? The only way to really learn Arabic, in my opinion, is through Arabic.
What I mean is, you need to get to a stage where you depend on Arabic books to learn Arabic.
When you don’t know a word, you open up an Arabic – Arabic dictionary and not an Arabic-English one. The sooner you get to this stage, the more exponential your results are going to be insha’Allah.
So I would encourage you with all my heart to try and learn the simple Mutun, like the AjrumTyyah in Arabic. But a Matn like AjrumTyyah, is only beneficial with a really good Sharh (explanation).
The thing is, listening to an Arabic explanation at the outset can be a bit like diving into the ocean.
So I have decided to put together a brief explanation of the concepts in the Ajrumiyyah, which I hope will give you a deep understanding of the text.
The lessons are structured in a way that will insha’Allah give you a comprehensive overview of Arabic grammar.
The lessons will be divided into different posts, insh’Allah. Before You Get Started With This Series: This series is not for absolute beginners.
There are plenty of excellent tutorials and free courses out there offering lessons on basic Arabic grammar and sentence structure – like the types of sentences in Arabic, forms of the verb, basic vocabulary etc. If you don’t understand these things, then I suggest you take a few lessons on them first. Once you get the basics down this course can help you get a complete overview of Arabic grammar, insha’Allah.
This will give you insights into the workings of I’rab, and a better understanding of Arabic. To keep things short, these posts are written in a very condensed manner. I am also working on a series of video modules to explain these lessons in more detail, insha’Allah. So please sign up to be notified about new posts so you don’t miss it.
