Arabic Through the Qur'an
This group is for all those of any religion or none who want to learn how to read and understand the Qur'an in Arabic, or who want to begin learning Arabic by learning to read the Qur'an. We will work through the book "Arabic Through the Qur'an" by Alan Jones, which is available through Amazon. No prior knowledge of Arabic, the Qur'an, or Islam is necessary. This will be a preliminary meeting to discuss how we will proceed and where we will meet. If you have the book, bring it; but you don't need to obtain the book to come to this meeting.

What we're about

Anyone who, with little or no prior knowledge of Arabic, wants to learn to read the Qur'an in Arabic, using the textbook Arabic Through the Qur'an by Alan Jones. I have been working through this book myself and would like a study partner or partners to keep us honest and working steadily. I expect that we would meet weekly or every other week, doing one or two lessons per week and checking our understanding and mastery of the material. I am not a Muslim (I'm a sympathetic Catholic Christian), but I work for a Muslim-founded organization and have access to knowledgeable Muslims to help us out from time to time.
