About the Book

 

In this book the author has drawn extensively on his experience of nearly thirty year of teaching the Arabic language to non-native students. The layout of this book, the texts and exercises of the lessons bear clear witness that hard-work and sincerity put together can ultimately and assuredly achieve good result. This book is specially designed for beginners who aim to learn Arabic quickly and accurately.

 

About the Author

 

S.A. Rahman is currently professor of Arabic in the Jawaharlal Nehru University at New Delhi, where he has teaching since 1974.

 

Introduction

 

India is a country where the tradition of Islam and Arabic studies stretches over centuries. There is no dearth of books on Islam, Arabic literature and other related subjects, Arabic language and its grammar. Whether it is a madrasah for religious studies or a school, college and University of modern education, the Arabic syllabi invariably include Arabic grammar. Indian scholars of the Arabic language have till date prepared a large number of books in an attempt to teach Arabic grammar in order to strengthen the foundations of the student of the Arabic language. Superficially and according to the abilities of the students some of the books have come to be known as good books and some others as bad books. However, I am of the conviction that no book on any subject and more so of the Arabic grammar should be compared with other books and classified as good or bad because every author prepares his book to the best of his information and ability and for a specific group of people with specific end in mind to achieve. Similarly no two persons or students will learn equally from the same book or the same teacher. Every author has his past experience in the field of the subject on the basis of which he builds up his book and every student has his own level of intellect and motivation to learn.

 

No single information can ordinarily be acquired from a single reading of a book and no single book can be read repeatedly due to monotony and boredom and hence he needs to read the same information encoded differently before it becomes a part and parcel of his acquisition.

 

It is more true of grammar of any language particularly for those who learn a foreign language in a foreign milieu through the grammar and not the grammar through the language like in the case of native languages.

 

Every author desires and tries to place his subject before readers in a way that he thinks is better and easy to comprehend and thus is created a corpus of reading material on the subject that provides choice to the readers and students.

 

In this book I have also tried to put things the way I think better and with my teaching experience spread over more than thirty long years. I believe that this book in hand will be of great utility for the students of the Arabic language anywhere and specially anywhere in India. I have employed the same method of placing things before the readers as I used in teaching my students in the classroom and since I had achieved good result with my students. Unlike many other books on Arabic grammar most favoured and popular with the students, I have written my own texts with specific grammar point in mind to teach through the lesson and precisely this is the reason that I could feed in the texts the grammar points I wanted and give maximum number of examples. It is of course not possible to write a lesson with only one grammar point, however, it is very much possible to teach only specific things through one lesson and indeed this is what I have tried to achieve. I think this could be possible for me because I have improvised texts for each lesson in preference to borrowing readymade texts from established writers of renown, or poetry, or the Quran and the Hadith of the prophet which is generally the case with a large number of books. I am fully aware that my improvised texts may not be very ornate and rhythmical as in some other books, however, I am confident that they are good enough to serve my end that is to make the readers and the students understand that they need to understand in an easy way and to achieve this end I am prepared to make any sacrifice.

 

In each lesson the text has been written and divided in lines in such a way that the meaning of the Arabic word, and phrase can be given just in front of it in order to make the things easy for the readers and our success rate is quite high. It has also been attempted that only specific grammar point/s should be dealt with in each lesson and the readers should work to concentrate to deal only with that much.

 

As far as possible adequate explanation has been given with examples. At the end of each lesson a list of difficult words used in the lesson has also been provided with their meanings in English.

 

I have detailed major grammar points in thirty-five lessons and some essential points have been briefly summed up under “Arabic Grammar on Finger Tips”. These include points which have either been discussed thoroughly in the lessons and I have mentioned them here just to serve as reminder while some minor points that do not merit detailed explanation but are considered vital, have been mentioned with adequate explanation and examples.

 

Through each book is complete in itself, however, no book is ever a final word on the subject. I believe that each book is complementary to the others on the subject as it provides another opportunity for the readers to compensate for what he or the authors might have missed in the others.

 

I have taken several books written on this topic of Arabic grammar as my model and tried to do this book in a different way-in a way that I considered better and closer to the ability of the students to understand.

 

It may be noted that I have basically prepared this book for the students who want to learn standard written Arabic outside its native milieu in most of the cases. I believe this book will be of great help for such people.

 

Before I finish I like to thank all those people who were in anyway helpful to me in preparing this small handbook of Arabic grammar and very specially Mr. Saniyasnain, the publisher of this book and who had actually prompted me to do this book about more than a year ago.

 

Finally, I thank God who gave me good health and ability to complete this work as best as I could.
