“A Vital Book of Study for any student of Arabic Language and suitable for all levels.”
What is the Ajrumiyyah?
Why is it so important to study?
The Arabs themselves had long before initiated a formal and systematic methodology to teach Arabic Grammar to their children. From the systems the Arabs employed one text in particular shines far more clearly than any other, it has withstood the test of time and is still after more than 700 years since its authors’ death, being taught throughout the Arab world. It is the text of Abdullah ibn Muhammad ibn Daud as-Sinhaji, known as Ibn Ajrum. The text itself although
not named as such by the author, has become known as ‘al-Ajrumiyyah. The Ajrumiyyah, is the quintessence of Arabic grammar, its status is largely unchallenged as an excellent introduction to this first field of learning, which every scholar must master before delving into other Arabic literature. We find much attention has been paid to it amongst Arab scholars over a considerable period of time.

Al Ajrumiyyah is a classical primer in Arabic grammar. Famously taught around the world, the text introduces the student to the vast world of Arabic grammar allowing one to gain the basic tools required to start understanding the science of Arabic morphology and syntax.
The aim and objectives is to:
1. Develop a better relationship with the Qur’an based around the Arabic language
2. To understand and learn the basic and foundational principles of Arabic grammar.
3. To develop a love for the Arabic language
