Description

The Classical Arabic Intermediate program is an introductory course in Arabic grammar and morphology for anyone interested in being able to read and understand the Qur’an, its associated literature, classical poetry, and most pre-19th century texts.

Learning Goals

There are seven specific learning goals in the program.

  1. Students will accurately identify Qur’anic vocabulary in Surat Yusuf according to the three parts of speech of the Arabic language.
  2. Students will correctly add diacritical case markings to texts without vowels to indicate the signs, states and types of words present in these texts correctly identifying a noun state as opposed to a verb state.
  3. Students will identify nouns and verbs in Qur’anic verses that exhibit hidden grammatical states while also providing the underlying reason for the implicit nature of this state.
  4. Students will analyze and pars sentences from the Qur’an using the rules of Iʿraab. Formal Iʿraab provides students with a system that integrates all aspects of their grammar knowledge.
  5. Students will identify various aspects of the verbal sentence of particular Qur’anic verses including but not limited to: the doer of the verb, active and passive forms, verbal patterns and the transitive/intransitive character of the verb.
  6. Students will identify various aspects of the nominal sentence in selected Qur’anic verses including but not limited to: the subject and its type, the predicate and its type and the kind of order of subject and predicate that the sentence is exhibiting.
