Intensive Arabic Program (IAP)
> Program Overview
Why should you learn Arabic?
- Arabic is the official language of over 20 countries and a language with more than 422 million speakers in the Arab world. (UNESCO)
- It is the chosen language. Allah Ta’ala selected Arabic to be the language of Qur’an from amongst all the languages of the world. “Indeed, We have made it an Arabic Qur’an that you might understand.” (Surah az-Zukhruf (43):3)
- Arabic is also used in our daily prayers, Friday sermons, du’as (supplications), etc.
Understanding the Qur’an, hadiths, and our prayers without the need for translation or interpretation is a great blessing. It will deepen your love and respect for Allah’s words. But it cannot be attained without taking the first step – learning Arabic.
‘Umar ibn Khattab said, “Learn the Arabic language. It will sharpen your wisdom.”
The International Open University (IOU) brings you our Intensive Arabic Program (IAP).
