Grammar is counted amongst the tool-sciences, serving as a means by which one can penetrate the depths of Allah’s final book, revealed “in a clear, Arabic tongue.” [26:95]

Grammar allows one to access the rich corpus of scholarly works written in the fields of Islamic Law (fiqh), Belief (`aqida), Prophetic Narratives (hadith), and so forth, thus making its study necessary for any serious seeker of knowledge.

Most importantly, a solid understanding of Arabic adds a totally new element to one’s worship. One’s prayer, supplication, remembrance of Allah, and recitation of the Qur’an are transformed from mere recital to an active conversation between one and one’s Lord.

This course introduces the student to the core concepts of Arabic grammar, essential for any further study of the Arabic language. By providing a thematic overview of possibly the most famous primer written on the topic, the Ajurumiyya, this brief, one semester course not only gives the student a solid foundation in the basic rules of Arabic grammar, but also readies one for a full, in-depth reading of a classical primer on the subject.
