Year 1 Curriculum
It is our goal to connect students to the Quran, sacred knowledge, and the Islamic tradition through the study of the Arabic language. Students will start their journey with the study of foundational Arabic grammar and morphology and over the course of the year build the skills required to read and understand the Quran and classical Islamic texts in Arabic.
There are two main objectives of the program:
To understand the Quran without a translation.
To read and translate classical Arabic texts that don’t have vowel marks.
