  1. Learn Arabic Words and Phrases

    If you want to be able to read as well as understand basic Arabic texts, you need to acquire some basic vocabulary. Basic communication phrases to express your gratitude, hospitality and some different forms of greeting would greatly help you in your journey to learn Arabic. Although self-learning is a good first step to learn Arabic, it is always preferable to seek guidance in order to learn properly. Check out this magazine in Nour Academy it has many articles about learning Arabic and Quran.
  2. Arabic is deemed one of the most difficult languages to learn as a non-native. However, nothing is impossible with the right guidance. If you're feeling lost and constantly asking yourself where to start, then you've come to the right place. Take a look at this article: How to Learn Arabic as a Beginner at Nour Academy.
  3. Did you ever ask yourself, what is the meaning of the word "Quran"? I tried to look it up and found in this article: 100 Questions On The Glorious Quran. The word " Quran" means That which is Read. If you have any other questions take a look at this article, it has some interesting questions and answers.
  4. Basically the Noon Sakinah is a Noon (ن) devoid of any vowels; namely the Kasra (كسرة), fatha (فتحة), and dammah (ضمة). In the Quran, the noon Sakinah can be depicted with a Sukoon (سكون) above it or without anything above it at all like this (ن). It is important to note that both have the same pronunciation and are called Noon Sakinah. But the tanween is an extra Noon Sakinah used with the Kasra (كسرة), fatha (فتحة), and dammah (ضمة). If you are interested to listen to the pronunciation of the noon sakinah and tanween take a moment to read this article: Learn to read Quran with Tajweed Rules: Noon Sakinah and Tanween
  5. Arabic diacritics (Tashkil)

    Diacritics are usually forgotten; however, they are extremely important in order to learn Arabic pronunciation. Diacritics (تشكيل), pronounced as Tashkil, literally means Forming, which is its main function, since Arabic letters on their own, without Tashkil, do not show proper guidance as to the proper Arabic pronunciation. Therefore, learning diacritics goes hand in hand with learning Arabic. If your interested to learn more check this article: Learn Arabic Diacritics: Tashkil
  6. The letter Hamza does not originally belong to the original 28 Arabic letters. It is, however, derived from the Arabic letter Aein (ع). It is most often seen atop or below the letter. But it is still considered one of the main vowels in the Arabic language.
