The L4 certificate in course for English-Speaking students is a comprehensive and popular course for the teaching of the Qur’anic and Traditional Arabic, originally devised and taught at the renowned Islamic University in Madinah catering for the non-Arabic speaking students from all over the world. Over the years, this course has enabled students to become competent in their use of the Arabic language and to participate and benefit from scholarly pursuits such as Qur’anic exegesis, hadith, fiqh, Seerah, history, and classical and modern Arabic literature.

  • It is concise (consisting of only three books, reasonably short) but extensive in their coverage.
  • It combines modern Arabic vocabulary with Islamic terminology used in the Qur’an and Sunnah.
  • It helps acquire an understanding of hundreds of Qur’anic verses, ahadith, Arabic parables and poetry.

This will be an ongoing series which will aim to get students to master the material covered in the Madina Books. The course will leave no stone unturned and address all the details not covered in the Books through the classical sources. The lessons will have a strong focus on the Quran linguistic miracle and the beauty and precision of the Arabic language which will serve as motivation for students and aspiring teachers.
The L4 Certificate in course has been organised to enable students to work at their own pace and in stages that allow steady progression. This course covers Book 2.
