Understand Quranic Arabic: Level 5

Continue Your Arabic Journey

In Understand Quranic Arabic levels 1, 2, and 3, we covered the fundamentals of Quranic Arabic. In Understanding Quranic Arabic level 4, we took it a step further and introduced you to verb families and new vocabulary.

Level 5 is here to continue your journey! The focus will be on completing the rest of the verb families in the Qur'an, and learning highly frequent vocabulary.

In level 5, we will also continue studying the Arabic science of 'Sarf'.

'Sarf' studies the patterns of Arabic words and their roots. The essential idea is that you can take one root (say علم, knowledge) and turn it into many words (عالم scholar, معلوم known quantity, تعليم teaching تعلم learning, etc).


In level 5, we will be covering verb families 5 to 10 as well as the Arabic science of 'Sarf', which deals with the patterns and root letters of Arabic words.

You'll be learning how these roots occur in the Arabic language, and how to identify their patterns in order to increase your vocabulary and comprehend Quranic Arabic at a deeper level. We'll also be learning how to use modern methods of researching these roots in order to further our understanding. We will be applying this knowledge directly to the Qur'an, in order to see results when we read the Qur'an and hear it in our prayers.

Level 5 will cover verb families 5, 6, 7, 8, & 10, as well as a lot of Qur'an translation, with a focus also on practice. We will also be learning how to use Classical Arabic dictionaries to research words and meanings at a deeper level.

Course length:

There are 8 2-hr lectures.

*Recommended course completion time: Level 5 will take approximately 1 month to complete if you spend 20 minutes a day. Alternatively, you can complete all units in 20 hours, with time spent on homework and revision.


The homework will be to review the family tables and vocabulary words of the week in order to cement them in your memory. Each person has their own level of memory and familiarity, so some may not require any review and some may require more time to review.

What students are saying:


"I enjoyed identifying the root, family (forms was a bit difficult). I'm now able to understand the Arabic within Quran a bit better. Alhamdulillah! I also feel a little confident about learning and practicing on my own now."
