Arabic Through the Qur’an is the first Arabic grammar book to appear in many years. Written by Prof Alan Jones, Emeritus Professor of Classical Arabic at Oxford University, this work aims at teaching Arabic using only the vocabulary in the Qur’an. In forty lessons and starting with the alphabet, Arabic Through the Qur’an covers the whole of Arabic grammar. Each lesson is followed by exercises and a key to the exercises is available at the end of the book.
Arabic Through the Qur’an gives the student a thorough understanding of Arabic grammar and a substantial vocabulary from the Qur’an, including many of the often repeated verses. Arabic Through the Qur’an is an indispensable aid both to those wanting to learn Arabic in order to be able to read the Qur’an and to Arabic students at university level.
Prof Alan Jones has taught Arabic for many years at Oxford and is well known both for his knowledge of the Arabic language and for his work on the Qur’an.
‘An entertaining and valuable companion to any English speaker struggling to read and understand the Qur’an.’
