“Finally… A Tried and Tested Comprehensive Program That Takes You From Only Reading Arabic Script (Without Understanding), To Understanding The Meaning Of The Qur’an And Fluently Reading The Books Of The Scholars In Their Original Arabic”

(You’ll be reading books by al-Ghazali and Ibn Taymiya while
other beginners are still studying pronouns)


From the desk of Yusuf Mullan
Thursday, 11:17 A.M.

Dear Seeker of Knowledge,

  • Do you read the Qur’an in Arabic without understanding what you’re reading?
  • Have you tried to study Arabic, but never got past the basics because the class was canceled or the lessons became overwhelming and confusing?
  • Do you have Arabic books and software programs gathering dust on your shelf after you gave up on them because they were too time consuming or difficult?
  • Have you ever considered studying abroad but your responsibilities at home make this impossible?
  • Do you wish you could also be moved to tears during taraweeh, like the imam leading the salaah?

If you said ‘Yes” to any of these questions, you’re in the right place. Our two-year, part-time, online course was designed for students just like you.

No, Arabic is not too hard for you. Thousands upon thousands of Muslims from every corner of the globe throughout our history and today have learned the language and, just like hundreds of your classmates in this 2-year online course, you can too. Really.

And when I say “learn Arabic”, I’m not talking about memorizing a list of Arabic words and phrases. I’m talking about learning the intricacies of the language, the grammar and morphology. So that you not only understand the meaning of the Qur’an as you hear it and read it, but you can also appreciate its linguistic miracle — the astonishingly beautiful use of the language that dumbfounded the pre-Islamic Arab.

This is what the two-year online foundations program is about.

And yes, it is possible for you to learn Arabic to this advanced level. Whether you’ve never studied Arabic before or you’ve tried a dozen times without success, when you have the right approach, you will be able to learn successfully now.

Here’s How You Can Successfully Learn Arabic Now:

You see, the reason that you haven’t been able to learn Arabic yet is not because the language is too difficult. Nor is it because there’s anything wrong with you.

The problem is in the way Arabic is taught these days.

Instead of learning the big picture first and getting a sense of how the language works, almost all modern programs will teach words and rules little by little with no connection between them – leaving you feeling overwhelmed and making the language seem confusing and random, when in fact it’s quite the opposite.

In The Footsteps Of The Scholars…A Traditional Approach To Studying Arabic

The traditional approach begins by giving you the big picture first, and then proceeds to fill in the details. It’s the exact opposite of the simple to complex approach that you see everywhere today.

The traditional approach works because it recognizes the fundamental nature of the Arabic language.

Arabic is not a random assortment of letters and words and grammatical rules.

It is a beautifully structured system for the conveyance of meaning. And it is a feat of staggering genius of the medieval grammarians that they were able to isolate from this system, a core and a central theme.

When you learn this core and central theme first, you will know how the language works. Then each time a new rule or pattern is introduced, it’s not going to be just a random piece of information that needs to be memorized. It’s now a key piece of the big picture that you eagerly grasp and put into place to make your understanding of the language clearer and clearer.

The Big Mistake in Learning Arabic

Start Reading Your First Arabic Book In The Third Week Of Class:

After over a decade of teaching Arabic this way, I’ve found that it takes about 8 hours of instruction, spread over 2 ½ weeks to teach this big picture. That means that you’ll be able to start reading and understanding an Arabic book within the first three weeks of class (with my help, of course).

I know that’s probably hard for you to believe — especially if you’ve studied for years and have very little comprehension and fluency to show for it.

The thing is, after seeing hundreds of students in dozens of classes do this, it’s going to be hard for me to believe that you won’t be able to do this as well. (and just so you don’t have to take my word for it, just read what my students have to say on the right)

Now, I’m not saying that we’ll be covering the entire topic of grammar and morphology in 2 ½ weeks of part time study. That’s simply impossible (and probably wouldn’t be much fun to try either).

What we’ll do, is cover the core and central theme, and the bare minimum of rules and patterns that you’ll need to know to start guided reading.

Let Your Own Success And Learning Fuel Your Motivation

You see, one of your most important assets throughout this course is your motivation for learning. We need to keep your motivation high. So I don’t want you to have to learn a ton of grammar and have to wait for the pay-off. That would not only be boring, but it’ll also be inefficient because it’s hard to remember grammar rules if you don’t have a context to see them in.

That’s why we need to get you started reading a book as soon as possible. When we start this guided reading, you’re going to see two things happen:

  1. Your enthusiasm levels will go through the roof, as you see the rules that you’ve learned come alive in the pages of this story book that you are reading directly in Arabic.
  2. As we encounter more complex structures and sentences in the book, you’ll have a perfect opportunity to learn them organically. And I’ll have the opportunity to teach it in context. So they’re not disconnected pieces of information. But clearly applicable pieces of a larger puzzle.

What exactly is covered in the two years?

Semester 1: Build Your Foundation In Grammar And Morphology Through Reading Two Arabic Books

So this is how our first semester works. We spend the first three weeks of class learning the most important parts of grammar and morphology that give us the big picture understanding of the language. Then, we start our first reading text, Qasas An-Nabiyeen (“Stories of the Prophets”) by Shaykh Abul Hasan Ali An-Nadawi (may Allah have mercy upon him).

We complete the first volume of this book in 12 ½ weeks and then the second volume in 4 weeks. As you can see, because we take our time to solidify our understanding of grammar and morphology in the first volume, we become more fluent and progress much more quickly through the second volume.

Amazingly, you’re going to see that the author of the Qasas An-Nabiyeen gradually introduces new structures and sentence constructions in the same order and with the same timing that I want you to learn them in. SubhanAllah although we’ve never met, it is as if the author and I have collaborated together to teach you Arabic grammar in this course.

Besides that, these books also contain stories, vocabulary and verses from the Qur’an. So as you read this familiar story, you’ll be naturally adding to the vocabulary you need to understand more and more of the Qur’an every week – without any need for long vocabulary lists, tedious exercises or flash cards.

With all these factors put together, you’ll find that after just a few weeks of class, you will be understanding more and more of the Qur’an that you read every day. (and as exciting as this is going to be, it’s nothing compared to what we’re going to see in the second year)

Semester 2: Read Your First Unvoweled Text And Open The Gates Of Knowledge For Yourself

In the second semester, we take everything we’ve learned in grammar and morphology and put it into practice as we start reading our first unvoweled text (i.e. without tashkeel, harakaat or zabr, zer and pesh).

Now, for a beginner, reading an unvoweled text seems like an unimaginably impossible feat. Without vowels, how do you know how to pronounce a word? And how do you know if what you’re looking at is a verb or a noun? Or which verb or which noun it is?

You’ll probably have to just trust me as I tell you this now, but with the grammar and morphology we learn and the practice we’ll get reading, you’ll be able to figure it out.

It’s like any skill – like typing or ice skating. If you don’t know how to do it, it looks impossible (even when you see other people do it effortlessly). But once you learn, you almost don’t remember what you thought was so difficult to begin with.

Also, like any skill, it does take work and effort on your part to get good at it. However, like the students who came before you, you’re going to find that every hour you invest in refining this skill will reward you many times over with increased proficiency, fluency and understanding.

We’re going to work together on this. Each week, I’ll tell you which pages you’ll need to cover before next class. Then, using the lessons I’ve recorded for you, you’re going to try as best as you can to read and understand these pages on your own. At the class, you can then read and translate the unvoweled text in front of me and I’ll correct your mistakes to make sure you’re going in the right direction.

Our text is Hidayah an-Nahw, the best book in the world for grammar. It’s a classic. It’s an incredibly thorough, yet concise text that teaches grammar in a style characteristic of many classical texts. Even though I’ve taught it 22 times, each time I teach it, I learn something new.

It’s a challenging book, I’ll tell you this now. However, once you study this book, it will relieve you from studying a dozen other books in the science. That’s the power of the classics.

Beyond that, you’ll be training yourself to think at the level of the scholars. When you can do that, you’ll be able to read and understand classic books and manuscripts – many of which have yet to be translated from Arabic.

Year 2: Increase Your Fluency As You Study The Most Noble And Exalted Sciences

After the first year, you’ll have all the tools you need to read and understand Arabic on your own. I encourage you to go out and just use these tools to read whatever book you like.

If you’d like to keep studying and honing, improving and refining your skills, though, that’s what the second year is for. This is where you’ll increase your Arabic proficiency as you delve deeper into the sciences to appreciate and be impacted by the linguistic miracle of the Qur’an.

We have 4 courses in the second year: Tafsir, Mantiq, Balagha and Advanced Grammar.

Tafseer: Dive deep into the meanings of the Qur’an to reach the rarely-seen gems below the surface

Here we will be going through the verses of the Qur’an and learning about rhetorical devices and language patterns. It will probably remind you of how we used the passages of the Qasas An-Nabiyeen book as a context to learn about grammatical structures. Now you’ll start learning about Arabic Rhetoric (balaagha), not through a text book, but by seeing this special use of the language used within the Qur’an.

We will cover two large surahs from the Qur’an with a very thorough grammatical and rhetorical analysis. The themes, language patterns and rhetorical devices you’ll learn about in these verses will equip you to understand hundreds of other verses like them.

So, although the imam might not be reciting from the exact portion we covered in class, you’ll be able to enjoy the recitation because the themes, topics, logical arguments, stories and special use of the language within all portions of the Qur’an resemble each other.

Classical Logic: Strengthen your powers of deduction and protect yourself from misleading arguments

Texts: al-Qistas al-Mustaqeem (The Just Balance) and Mi’yaar al-ilm (The Criterion of Knowledge) by Imam Al-Ghazali

Your knowledge of mantiq will ensure that you’re drawing the correct conclusions when you read the works of classical authors. And it will protect you from misleading arguments as you’ll be able to see exactly what false reasoning is being used to reach an incorrect conclusion.

Classical Logic is the study of rational deduction and the modes of argument. Besides being a pre-requisite to properly appreciating great works in tafsir, such as Al-Aloosi and Abu As-Saood, studying mantiq will also deepen your appreciation of the Qur’an. Because entire sequences of verses within the Qur’an are formatted based on the rules of Logic.

And although logic is mostly intuitive, when you understand exactly why a particular argument leads to its conclusion you will appreciate the argument to a much higher degree. You’ll go beyond satisfaction into absolute certitude.

Al-Ghazali was a brilliant author known for his highly elevated prose and his ability explain abstract and complex topics through simple analogies. So as you learn mantiq, you’re going to be reading some great Arabic literature. The two texts we’ll be studying are al-Qistas al-Mustaqeem (The Just Balance) and Mi’yaar al-ilm (The Criterion of Knowledge).

Advanced Grammar: Develop true proficiency so that you can read Arabic just as easily as you read English

Text: Ibn Aqeel’s commentary on the Alfiyyah of Ibn Malik

Ibn Malik’s “Thousand Couplets” is the last text that students in the Arab world cover on grammar. You will be reading from a rare edition of Ibn Aqeel’s commentary that has neither vowels nor punctuation. This gives you the perfect environment to really develop your skills in deciphering the text and inferring the vowels.

Because this commentary is quite easy to understand, you’ll be able to focus your efforts on getting more proficient at reading quickly. Our aim is to gradually wean you off of conscious deciphering – and take you to the point where the deciphering becomes subconscious. So you can read and understand Arabic as quickly and easily as you do English.

Arabic Rhetoric (balaagha): Unveil the miracle of the Qur’an by understanding the deeper connotations of each word and grammatical structure through the study of eloquence

Text: Mukhtasar Al-Ma’aani Imam Taftazani’s commentary on al-Qazweeni’s Talkhees Al Miftah

Rhetoric is the most exalted and noble area of study concerning the Arabic language. It is the science of eloquence – of using the most appropriate language for each given situation and audience. It is said that it is through the principles of Rhetoric (balaagha) that “the veils are removed from the faces of miraculousness within the verses of the Qur’an”.

One of the most challenging (and rewarding) books ever written on this topic is Imam Taftazani’s commentary on al-Qazweeni’s Talkhees Al Miftah. After almost two years of steady progress in your Arabic studies, you’ll be ready to start reading this book with me.

The study of balaagha will open up a whole new world for you, exposing you to the most wondrous things. We’ve saved this text for the final months of Year 2 so that you’ll have something exciting to look forward to.

How does the online program work?

Self-paced (Lifetime access to resources without live classes)

There are two primary components to this online program. The first is the learning resources. These are video and audio lessons, slides, tables, book scans and transcripts that cover all the topics and books that comprise our program. You’ll see them neatly organized in our online video portal so you can easily find the lesson you’re on, review what you’ve covered, and look ahead to what you’ll be learning next.

Virtual Representation of What You Get

They’re also downloadable and printable, so you can take your studies with you on your commute, around the house or wherever you need to go. You won’t have to sit in front of a computer to learn. The transcripts are particularly useful to review or catch anything you might have missed. It’s all written out for you.

The Self-Paced version of the program gives you lifetime access to all these resources.

This means that you can spend as little or as much time on it as you like. You can go through the program quickly or go through it slowly. Study every day or once a week or whenever you have a spare moment. If life gets busy (as it probably will at some point…) you can put your studies aside and come back to them later. Your access will never expire. These resources will always be there for you.

Also, just because you don’t have live classes, it doesn’t mean you’re on your own. If you ever have questions about the lessons, you can ask them in the comments section under each video or send us an email. My team and I love answering questions about Arabic. It’s one of the highlights of our day. Really.

Premium (with live classes)

The second component of the program is live classes, online. When I say live, I mean that you, your classmates and I will all be in the online classroom at the same time. We’ll be communicating in real time. You’ll be able to type your questions so I can answer them. You can take the mic and say something and I can hear you and you will be able to hear me. Live. And because the class is online, you can join us from wherever you are in the world.

In the first semester, the live classes are where you’ll practice your verb tables in front of me and where we’ll review the passages of Qasas An-Nabiyeen each week so that you can ask your questions live and I can check that you’re understanding things correctly.

In the second semester and beyond, these live classes give you a chance to practice your reading of unvoweled text. Again, this is where we close that feedback loop, so that I know how much you’ve understood and I can fill in any gaps in your understanding and give you course corrections as needed.

Live classes are twice a week, one hour each class. One sessions is on Sunday mornings at 8:15 AM Eastern and the other is on Wednesday evenings at either 5:00 PM or 9:00 PM Eastern. (Offered twice to cater to different time zones). They’ll also be recorded, so that if you miss class, you can listen to the recording and catch up and join the next class.

How can I join the program?

If this letter has caused your dedication to grow even deeper, and if you see how you can really get more of the messages Allah has intended for you by truly understanding His language, then please read this section carefully.

This program is specifically for people who want to understand Arabic as it relates to our spiritual teachings. And with that in mind, it is completely different from any other “learn Arabic” type of program you might have seen.

In fact, it’s the only Arabic program that precisely leverages the 80/20 principle the way I explained it to you in the report you downloaded a few days ago (assuming you’re subscribed to our mailing list) so that you can start reading an actual Arabic book by as soon as the third week of class.

The complete online program can help you too if you implement it and believe that it’s something that can help you in your studies.

In a few days from now, I’ll open up registration to the main program to fill the last few remaining seats. So if you’re really excited about this, one thing you can do is you can fill the form below to join the early bird list.

This way you’ll have a chance to join the program before anyone else and you’re pretty much guaranteed a spot. If you’re not at that point, then that’s perfectly fine. Just watch the free videos I’m sending you as a subscriber to our mailing list. You’ll get great value from them regardless of whether you choose to invest in the main program or not. These concepts will help you. So either way, you’ll be getting some great education, insha Allah.

Finally, I just want to share with you this hadeeth, narrated by Abu Darda, who said, ‘I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) say,

Whoever follows a path to seek knowledge, Allah will make easy for him the path to Paradise. The angels spread out their wings in approval of the seeker of knowledge, and those who are in the heavens and on earth pray for forgiveness for the scholar, even the fish in the water. The superiority of the scholar over the worshiper is like the superiority of the moon over all other heavenly bodies. The scholars are the heirs of the Prophets, for the Prophets did not leave behind dinars or dirhams, rather they left behind knowledge, so whoever gains knowledge has gained great good fortune.’” (narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2606)

May Allah facilitate your path to knowledge and grant you success in this life and the hereafter.

Warmest salams,

Have you heard what other students are saying?

    I am a father of 9, so time is a luxury that I don’t always have. I have tried for several years to learn the Arabic language and this course has allowed me to achieve more in the past 15 months then I have in all my previous years collectively“.
    - Kyree Spain, New Jersey

    “I took one year of University Arabic course and came out with zero understanding of morphology and grammar. But just few weeks after enrolling in the Shariah Program, I started to understand portions of what the Imam recites from the Holy Quran during salat
    - Kasim Ali

    “Within the first few weeks of Shariah Program I had covered in a year [of my studies] of my weekend madrasah with much deeper understanding. And alhumudlillah after a year of Shariah Program I was able to read books with considerable understanding.”
    - Saad Anjum

    “I don’t know of anything comparable being offered elsewhere in Canada or the US in English. WHAT YOU COVER IN THIS COURSE IS WHAT PEOPLE GO OVERSEAS TO SYRIA, PAKISTAN AND ELSEWHERE FOR. I spent 9 months in Damascus studying Arabic and this course is better organized and more thorough, and you can take it without quitting your job. If this had been offered then I wouldn’t have needed to go…
    -Waqar Ali Khan, Canada

    “When i first read comments raving about shariah programme, i thought they were abit over the top until i started the course… subhanallah wow!  It really is the only course outside the middle east that teaches arabic as of you were studying under a sheikh abroad.”
    - Zakra Ahmad

    “I had almost given up on learning the language… But since finding this program, I have changed that mind-set. I no longer feel stupid, and am now comfortable with knowing that I will be fluent in Arabic just as much as I am with English (InshaAllah) due to what’s provided in this program… I must say the Shariah Program has given me so much confidence.”
    - Shabba Shakkas

    “One thing i have picked up from the teacher is his clever way of making you believe you can do it and changing your mindset regarding Arabic as a whole. Mulana Yusuf will either say, “if you got that then its really good, ” or, “if your confused then even that is good because it shows that your mind is working!!” Simply brilliant.”
    - Wisdom

    “I feel the spiritual benefit of it already… (I am 63)… All these years I have studied, I thought I was just a poor learner, but I can see that what I was taught and the manner of how I was taught was inferior.”-Yousef
    (older student with vision and hearing limitations)

    “[The] big-picture approach brings about an attitude of commitment in the student that so many other courses fail to develop.”- Danish Muzaffar Barey

    “the bold step he takes in getting the student into the heart of the Arabic language through ‘the stories of the prophets’ just after a few weeks of schooling in Arabic is unheard of but it is highly effective because while giving the opportunity to the student to apply and understand the theory (morphology and syntax in general), it also keeps him/her not only challenged but also motivated and interested…this is what the other courses fail to achieve!”
    - oumardia

    “Within first few weeks I realized the structure of this course meant that it was adding to everything I had been exposed to and forming a much clearer map of the language. The course has never felt boring despite my previous exposure and the students are always being stretched and steadily taken to the next level”.
    - Faisal Khan

    “I heard about Shariah Program a few years ago and because I was doing another Arabic course, I did not start with Sharia Program. I am really glad and all praise is due to Allah that I did not put it off any longer, because what I have realized, since joining is that Sharia Program taught in 13 weeks what took 3 years+ in the other course”.
    - Farida

    “I had almost started believing that online programs cannot deliver on the real stuff… But after 10-11 months in your program, my faith is restored that it can be done”
    -Ali Abidi, Baton Rouge, Louisiana

    “I expected a lot from the programme and i ve not been dissappointed. I dont know how it happened but with only few weeks into the study  materials, i am competing favorably with my friends who have been studying the language for close to 2-3 years.”
    -Abass Badmuss

    “…above all, I received a lot of information which I had not come across in previous attempts in studying the language. And I think the methodology in getting across the core of the language and then expand on it is unique and very effective. It also keeps one’s attention focused in looking forward to subsequent lessons. ”
    -Yinka Lawal

    “Alhamdulillah I am so very pleased with my classes at the Shariah Program. I’ve been studying Arabic since I’m Muslim more than 35 years however, I’m just now beginning to get it. The classes are available on a consistent basis and everything is made so clear, easy and to the point. After studying in Egypt, Sudan and Singapore plus in the USA none has presented the classes in a consistent clear way as the Shariah Program.
    -Amatullah V. Abdul-Karim, USA

    “I have been studying Arabic for a decade but seen nothing like it. There is no replacement for this in our English world. All the books written on teaching Arabic fall below par to the standard set by Shaykh Mufti Yusuf Mullan”.
    -Yasin Shaikh

    “This course, for me, was the first and only opportunity for a sister to really excel in the Arabic language. What I can get and have gained from this course I don’t think any sister in the world can get it elsewhere and I am sure of it.”
    -Safiya Bint Ahmed, U.K.

    “I’d read and heard about various online programs to learn Arabic and grammar and Shariah Program was always at the top of the list.  Shariah Program has exceeded any expectations I had as it seems to be a madrassah level education offered online.  I hoped to be able to recognize a few words here and there when reading Quran.  I had no idea that we were going to be studying Arabic to the depths that we are masha Allah.”
    -Muminah Ahmad, Philadelphia

    “I remember that following Ramadan, I would prepare a juz each night before taraweeh focusing on iraab, scanning through the english if need be and then stand with so much happiness and gratefulness as I listened to it being recited. I was able to follow every word alhamdullillah!”
    -Javeria Memon

    Last week, I heard a Khutbah after Fajr in which I understood almost everything I have heard. It was such an ecstatic moment for me in my Arabic learning…. to tell you all the truth, I was probably one of the worst students in the first 6 months… I resolved to myself that I would not only catch up but also try to be one of the best students in my class…. my family, friends and colleagues say that I am a person who is hard-to-please. Here in TSP, my experience has just been the opposite. I am pleased with the course from Day 1 till now”.
    - Siraj from Geneva

    “I showed a friend the material available for each lesson.  She was stunned.  The fact that the video is backed up by a transcript and with an abstracted handout and table when appropriate, is the greatest and most brilliant idea I have ever seen or experienced…  I would also add that the fact that you have distilled your experience of the past ten or more years in such a way as to present the material in a logically and chronologically coherent manner, contributes to your method as an unqualified success. ”
    -Shakira, Palestine

    “I had almost started believing that online programs cannot deliver on the real stuff… But after 10-11 months in your program, my faith is restored that it can be done”
    -Ali Abidi, Baton Rouge, Louisiana

    “When i first started looking for arabic online course…i was skeptical about the promises made by mufti saab…..especially when mufti saab said  we will be reading untexted book after 6 months..i just cloudnt understand how that would be possible since students spend so many years going to in university to learning arabic….i used to think what is so special about this course……But even since i joined Masha-Allaah TabarakAllaah...i can see the promises of mufti saab coming true….its just amazing how this course is structured to ensure that the student get the maximum benefit and learning complicated things within a short span of time…”
    -Nargis Begum

    “The moment I came across this program, I grabbed it, it was like my prayers are answered.    This is  the most comprehensive, well structured program and very easy to understand. ”
    -Shada Malik, UK

    “Shariah program has far exceeded my expectations. It is not as expensive as many other programs, yet the benefit from the course is unbelievable.
    It only requires around 7 hours a week, which is definitely reasonable. Alhamdulillah, each time I hear the Qur’an I’m able to understand more and more with every passing week. I’m only 5 months into the program but have already paid for the entire 2 years because I am confident in Mufti Yusuf’s talent in teaching Arabic, mashaAllah.
    In fact, I am now more focused and passionate about learning Arabic than I am about my Masters degree.”
    - Syed Idris, Toronto, Canada

    “I have taught University for years and never seen anyone motivate students with your zeal and humble way of “I too am learning … see it’s not too hard for you.
    -Mukhtar B. PhD.

    “I pray Allah Most High preserves this program and all involved as it has enhanced the quality of my life, my deen, and foremost my understanding of the arabic language 100 fold and has truly started to unravel for me the true miracle of kalaamullah.”
    -myaseen74

    “At first the energy of the presentations attracted me. They come with the confidence a good teacher must hold for his pupils. He must see their potential when they cannot. No amount of detailed instruction can replace this.
    - Barry Nur

    “I am moving very slowly but what is invaluable is not only Mufti Yusuf’s expertise but his absolute conviction that it is achievable. That inspires me to continue. Everything is there that I need to accomplish the goal.

    My life is extremely busy and so I do not have the possibility to move as fast as I would like but the structure of the course gives me the flexibility to move at my own pace.”
    - Leanne Day

    “After I came across this course, I felt as though my prayer had been answered. It is so exciting to know that that I can access the Arabic language from the confines of my own home under the guidance of a dedicated teacher who will assist and support his students as they progress further at the flexibility of their own learning pace.”
    - Ridhwana

    “This is my third series of Arabic classes. I’ve previously attended an Islamic school for three years, and I also took a year of Arabic classes in college, and I can honestly say that I’ve learned far more here in three months than I did in my four prior years in Arabic instruction. Not only that, but what I have learned I am also able to understand and recall far better than anything I learned from my other attempts at learning the language. 

    “This is truly a remarkable system, Mashallah. I was somewhat skeptical that the course would be as good as I had heard, but it definitely exceeded my expectations. Everything that is taught is taught in an amazingly efficient manner, with each issue being brought up multiple times, with each instance increasing the depth of the discussion at a controlled rate, so that by the time a subject is taught in exhaustive detail, the subject will already have been brought up multiple times. It really just flows”.
    - Farhad Akbari, San Diego

    “alhamdulillah I feel like I’m getting much more than my money’s worth and really your program is the answer to my dua’s of wanting to learn arabic seriously. I used to read the website and the testimonials and think that it was all just hype to get people to sign up, but now I can’t stop gushing about it to other people I know having similar problems as I had with finding the right course. Within the 7-8 weeks of recordings you have summed up what I have learned with 3-4 years of part time studies and more, and I’ve understood the concepts much more clearly than before. So I just wanted to say jazakallah for offering the course as I’m really excited to see what else I learn as I go on inshallah”.
    - Fariha Siddiquie, Toronto

    “.. I had (and still have) a bookshelf FULL of Arabic learning resourses, I have all the volumes of al kitaabul Asaasi, al ‘arabiyyatu bayna yadayk, ibn sa’ud university curriculum, al kitab fii taallumil ‘arabiyyah and many more. Of course I didn’t get through them all and neither did I succeed in fully comprehending all the lessons, I probably would have still been at it, maybe even given up. Anyway after 6 months studying at Shariah Program, I could comfortably open any of the textbooks and understand almost all of it. I don’t really need to use them anyway. Alhamdulillah. And that’s no exaggeration! It was the best decision I had made and I’m still around learning new things every week.”
    – Rahima

    “I have found it to be very true that you don’t need to worry about not understanding everything the first time it is covered. As concepts are covered over and over again through the Qasas book. I have found slowly but surely everything starts to fall into place. I love the fact we are learning the grammar whilst actually translating a book, so the grammar isn’t just theory, but comes to life! It is great being able to listen/watch the recordings as many times as needed and reassuring to know that any questions and queries can be asked anytime on the forum.”

    “The best thing about the program was the fact that the same concept was repeated so many times that it just settled in the brain. The same was with the vocabulary, because of the repetitive usage of it, I just learned it with minimal effort alhumdulilah.”
    - Faryal

    “I have studied with Mufti Yusuf for about 3 years… Alhamdulillah… I have benefitted so much to the point of being able to read books I was wishing to read for many years. I have read almost 2/3rds of Imam Sabooni’s SafwatulTafsir, as well as the explanation of RiyadasSaliheen by Shaykh Uthaymeen, and have been able to listen to the lectures of the great ulema online who’s lectures are mostly in Arabic. So along with this program and your own personal dedication you can definitely go far. Most of All understanding the Quran is the greatest of the blessings of learning the language!”
    - Khaled Hasan

    “You’ve taken a language that seems like an enigma to most people and are handing it to them on a silver platter, all they need to do is to make some effort to do well. Usually when you take a course, there are a lot of variables in order for you to succeed. Such as the course layout, the teacher, course material, course presentation, then the student, their interest, their motivation and effort. I feel I can safely say that, in this Arabic course, you’ve made these variables into non-variables. The course layout, methodology, the teacher, material and presentation are excellent and constantly getting even better. So a prospective student should only worry about their own variables, because this course undoubtedly will get you there. You just need to prepare for the journey. Its like getting on a plane, as you prepare for the trip, you’re not really thinking about the pilots ability to fly, the engine’s capability to run, etc. Those are given. You’re only worried about being ready, being packed, getting to the airport on time. etc. That is how this is.”
