Do any of these sound familiar to you?

  • I’d love to learn Arabic but have no idea where to begin

  • I don’t have time to enrol in extensive Arabic courses, with homework and exams

  • I read the Qur’an regularly but feel frustrated reading English translations

  • I wish I could understand and be moved by Qur'anic recitations

  • I’d love to understand what’s so special about Arabic and why God chose it to reveal His final message

  • I’ve tried to learn Arabic before but found it too fast-paced and with too much grammatical jargon

Imagine yourself in Madinah...

...sitting in the Prophet (S)’s mosque. As you wait for the prayer to begin, you listen to the melodious recitation from the speakers and your heart melts with gratitude to Allah that you’re able to understand His words in the language they were revealed in.

You then open a copy of the Qur’an laying nearby and are able to understand most of what you read without needing to check the translation.

In the prayer, you stand in full concentration, able to understand the passage that the imam is reciting and feel more connected in your prayer than ever before.

That kind of connection is right within reach!

This course is PERFECT for you if you:

  • Want to learn Arabic to connect with the Qur’an

  • Enjoy learning new concepts and the workings of a new language

  • Want to appreciate why the Qur'an is a linguistic miracle

  • Are a busy woman who can’t access Arabic courses at institutes, or simply can’t commit to regular attendance

  • Prefer learning at your own pace and in your own time, without having to sync your schedule and timezone to the teacher’s

  • Are willing to put aside a couple of hours of study time per lesson for yourself, spread out over the week/month/year as you please

  • Ever wished you could rewind the teacher, pause them for a bit, or even speed them up!

This course is NOT for you if you:

  • Are training to become a translator

  • Are looking for a Qur’an tafsir course

  • Are looking for a spoken Arabic course

  • Are looking for advanced Arabic grammar

  • Can’t yet read the Arabic script

  • Why are the 4 levels called Quests?

    One of the words for ‘learning’ in Arabic is ṭalab: to seek, to go on a quest. By seeing the word Quest every time you log in, I want you to be reminded of the loftiness of what you are undertaking: that you’re seeking true knowledge. It’s not just a level or module to be ticked off, but a serious undertaking.

  • What are the pre-requisites?

    You only need to be able to read Arabic. You do not need to have any prior knowledge of the Arabic language itself or be fluent at reading the Qur’an. In fact, by studying with Arabiq Online, your recitation will automatically improve as you start understanding more of what you are reading.

  • Can I still join if I'm not 'busy' and still a 'girl'?

    Absolutely! (Most women still consider themselves 'girls' too!) We think teens will find it especially beneficial. As long as you can read Arabic and enjoy learning the workings of a new language, you'll be fine!

  • How do you support your students?

    In addition to your own student portal with all the learning materials you need easily accessible on your dashboard and optimized for mobile devices, all students will have access to email support, as well as a supportive community of fellow female students from all over the world in an exclusive Facebook group.

  • Why is the course only for women and not men?

    There are many Arabic courses out there for men, taught by men, whereas the online courses tailored specifically to women's Arabic education needs are few and far between. Additionally, the instructor is female and understands how multi-tasking women learn best, guided by feedback from her students, so this course has been created with women in mind.

  • Is Qur’anic different to Modern Standard Arabic?

    The grammatical structures in both are actually the same, with Qur’anic Arabic having a few more archaic styles thrown in such as oaths and emphatic statements. On the whole though, it is really only the vocabulary which differs, so here you will be learning Qur’anic vocabulary such as: earth, sky, guidance, light, darkness, belief, family, piety and soul, whereas in MSA you would learn more modern words such as: butter, jam, the United Nations, conference, journalist, kangaroo and classroom. Like any language, Qur’anic Arabic is a transferable skill, where it is just a case of acquiring new vocabulary as and when you need it.

  • When will Quests 2, 3 and 4 become available?

    They will be unlocked and available for you to enroll in as soon as you complete Quest 1 Insha’Allah

  • I’ve heard Arabic grammar is difficult...

    All languages have grammar as that is what allows us to speak and communicate correctly following rules. Unfortunately, the majority of native English speakers have not learned English through grammar, so many people don’t know the labels for words that they use every day: nouns, verbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and often it is these labels and new terminology that throw us off, and not the actual grammar.
    Worry not! I have done my best to simplify Arabic grammar as much as possible, avoiding unnecessary jargon, and dealing with it on a need-to-know basis, and we will start from the very beginning. Learning grammar is actually one of the most rewarding aspects of learning Qur’anic Arabic because it allows us to really see how the language comes together, and understand why Allah may have chosen a certain structure over another.

  • Will there be any exams?

    Nope, no exams here. Your progress is assessed through end-of-lesson quizzes. Progression onto the following lesson is unlocked once you have completed the tasks and quiz for the current lesson. Don’t worry, you can take the quizzes as many times as you like.

Ruhina, Middlesex

Nazmina’s unique teaching style and vast knowledge of the Arabic language flows with effortless ease in her Quranic Arabic course. Each lesson leaves me loving the Arabic language more as Nazmina gives delicate marginal points that make the language come alive. Truly loving this course!

N.Kassam, Middlesex

This course came at the right time of my journey in trying to learn Quranic Arabic. The style of study is of high level and commands dedication from the student, as any high level and professional quality course out there. Sis Nazmina has over 15 years of knowledge and background in Arabic and it shows through in her delivery. Sister Nazmina helps to home down concepts and ideas behind the root word in context of being British and roots it back to what is familiar in our cultural upbringing. A true added value.

Fatim C., London

I am thoroughly enjoying my Arabic lessons. The course is well structured with a manageable pace and well-presented material, which is easy to follow. The starter exercises, vocabulary tests and weekly homework ensure that concepts introduced are understood and reinforced. Reciting the Qur’an is more pleasurable now that I am able to understand and attempt to translate the verses rather than rely on the given translation.

M.H. Walji

I have enjoyed uncovering treasures from the Quran through Nazmina’s style of teaching. I am in awe of her knowledge of the Arabic language. The quality of this course challenges you to learn, to put in the time and effort and yet is simple enough to inspire you to understand the Quran in more depth.

Raziya, Middlesex

I would highly recommend anyone who wishes to learn more about the Arabic language to take this course. It is taught in a very simple, easy to learn approach which makes it a course that can be undertaken by people of different knowledge levels. The assignments and the class activities done are highly interactive and enjoyable which I thoroughly enjoy doing.

Sumaiya M., Middlesex

...just wanted to say: thank you so much for all your hard work and effort in running this Arabic course for us. I was just going through Surah Qasas and I was trying to break down and translate each verse before looking at the translation of what I was reciting. Compared to before, I feel I'm able to understand so much more now alhamdulillah. I'm sure there's a long way to go still, but just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us come this far already, that we are able to look at Qur'anic verses and translate them. May Allah reward you immensely in this world and the next.

Aaliya Mavani, Middlesex

A year on and Alhamdulillah, Nazmina’s voice still rings in my ears :) The knowledge and skills learned have enabled me to connect more intimately with the Holy Quran and empower me to memorise and retain more Alhamdulliah. Highly highly recommended.

Sabiha, NW London

Before starting with Nazmina, learning Arabic, especially with the complicated grammar, seemed like an insurmountable task. But from the first lesson, my apprehension evaporated as students of all abilities were made to feel at ease, gently introducing the beautiful language with enthusiasm, love and always a smile. The lessons were well structured with clear objectives for each lesson and I really felt that the objectives had been achieved after each lesson and consolidated with the weekly homework, always a manageable amount. I would highly recommend these classes to anyone who wants to gain a deeper and more independent understanding of our holy book."

F.N. Meral

I thoroughly enjoyed learning Qur'anic Arabic with Nazmina. She is always very well prepared, explains the content very well, and has lots of patience. Her vocabulary tests and exercises helped us a lot in our learning. This course has really helped me to understand a lot of the Holy Quran in more depth. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who has a passion for learning Quranic Arabic.

Shaheeda Ladha, NW London

Very good course. Have thoroughly enjoyed it! Have more love for the Quran as I understand more than I used to. Excellent teacher.
