VW =X ;)  ./"0 V0 Y$Z Introduction From the multitudes of letters which this humble writer has received from every corner of India, there still seems to be a fervent desire in this age to learn Arabic and to understand the final message of AllÄ h , namely the Qurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Ä n. However, no primary syllabus that conformed to the times was presented to the seekers of Arabic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such a syllabus that could increase the enthusiasm of the learners. The ancient method of teaching Arabic and its syllabus from the very outset made one lose courage. Even the modern books have been deficient in creating an urge in the student. Experience shows that only a syllabus which has easy rules coupled with teaching the language can increase the enthusiasm of the student. The rules must assist the learner in mastering the language. While learning the language, the rules are refreshed. Page 13


Arabic Tutor – Volume One

In reality, choosing such lessons and providing a sequence for them is no ordinary task. This is merely the grace of the Almighty Allāh  who made this writer accomplish such an enormous task.

^_=  `=  [\ ]F “That is the grace of Allāh. He grants it to whoever He desires.” All thanks are due to Allāh  that this book was found to be extremely beneficial wherever it was read or taught. Many seekers of Arabic have written that they had lost hope after several attempts. If they had not obtained this book, they would not have learnt Arabic. This is the fourth edition of this book. Initially, this book was written in two parts. Now it has been divided into four parts so that it can serve as a proper syllabus for high schools from the fourth class till matric. This is the first part of the book. The lessons have been decreased when compared to the previous editions. However, the exercises have been increased to an extent that they can serve the place of an Arabic reader. Page 14


Arabic Tutor – Volume One

This part contains only fifteen lessons. But you will be surprised to note how much Arabic is taught with such a few lessons. The method of analysing sentences and recognition has been so well explained, that one cannot achieve this by learning several other prevalent Arabic Grammar books. The key to each part has also been published. Due to this, many learners have learnt Arabic on their own. A student doing self-study can complete this part in about six weeks. However, due to the presence of several other subjects in high schools, it will be appropriate to make it a one year course in the fourth class. In Arabic seminaries and Dārul Úlūms, where only Arabic is taught, all four parts of this book can be easily taught in one year. Nevertheless, this book is such that every text book committee and those in charge of the syllabi in the madrasahs should include it in their syllabus in order to remove the difficulties of the students. They will be rewarded by Allāh and thanked by the people. The summary of the opinions of the Ulamā of every province of India and the reviews of magazines and newspapers is that this has been the most successful attempt to simplify Arabic. This book is worth being Page 15


Arabic Tutor – Volume One

introduced in government and non-govermental schools so that the teaching of Arabic can be simplified. This humble servant is grateful to all those who rendered beneficial opinions. May Allāh  reward them with the best of rewards. The following pages contain the valuable opinions of some scholars. This should serve as a means of encouraging the seekers of Arabic. Others will not have to waste their time in looking for the merits of this book. The servant of the students (Moulānā) Àbdus Sattār Khān (   ) Bindi Bazaar, Bombay, India Muharram 1361 A.H.

Arabic Tutor – Volume One

Reviews of this Book by the Úlamā, professors of Arabic, authentic journals and the lovers of Arabic Àllāmah Shabbir Ahmad Úthmānī (   ) This book is worth including in the syllabi of the madāris. It is perhaps the best book written in this subject. The author has done a tremendous favour to the seekers of Arabic.

Moulānā Manāzir Ahsan Gilānī (   ), teacher at Jāmiah Uthmāniah, Hyderabad May Allāh reward you. This is a tremendous task. You have favoured the Muslims greatly. You have decreased a burden from my shoulders. Moulānā Khājah Àbdul Hayy (   ), professor at Jāmi’ah Millīyah, Delhi I taught the first part to the students as an experiment. I have found this book to be the easiest from all the books written on this subject. Abul A’lā Maududi, editor of Tarjumanul Qur’ān, Lahore Page 17


Arabic Tutor – Volume One

This is the most successful effort at explaining the language of Arabic and its rules.

Moulānā Muhammad Nāzim Nadwī (   ), teacher at Nadwatul Ulamā, Lucknow Many books have been written in India to learn the Arabic language in the shortest period possible. However, I have not seen any book till now that concisely meets the needs of the time. Moulānā Àbdus Sattār Khān is entitled to the gratitude and thanks of the Indian students and teachers for having written a very beneficial, easy and concise textbook to fulfil this need… From my personal experience I know that this book is very valuable in providing benefit. It is worthy of being included in Arabic madrasahs and English schools so that the students can learn the language in a short period.

Moulānā Àbdul Qadīr Siddīqī (   ), teacher at Jāmi’ah Uthmāniah, Hyderabad If this book is included in the syllabus, it will be very suitable. It is better than other books.

Moulānā

Àbdul

Wāsi’ (   ), teacher at Jāmi’ah

Uthmāniah, Hyderabad I completely agree with the opinion of Moulānā Àbdul Qadīr Sāhib.

Àllāmah Sheikh Àbdul Qādir (   ), professor at Elphinstone College, Bombay This is a successful endeavour. If this book is included in the initial Arabic syllabus, it would be more beneficial than other books.

Moulānā Ghulām Ahmad (   ), head teacher at Madrasah Àrabīyah, Jāmi’ Musjid Bombay

Page 19


Arabic Tutor – Volume One

We have included this textbook in the syllabus of our madrasah. Experience shows that it is very beneficial.

Moulānā Habībur Rahmān Sherwānī (   ), Hyderabad I have studied the book, ‘Àrabī kā Mu’allim’. It seems to be better than the previous books.

Moulānā Lutfur Rahmān (   ), Hyderabad The success you have achieved in simplifying Arabic has not been achieved by anyone, not even by the European Orientalists. This book is not merely ‘dry’ Grammar but is an excellent textbook of Grammar and an interesting collection of literature.

Janāb Ghulām Àlī, advocate of the High Court, Bombay Such an interesting and easy book of Arabic Grammar has not been seen before. My children study it with great interest.

Page 20


Arabic Tutor – Volume One Moulānā Sayyid Muhammad Yahyāpūr (   ), Ilāhabād There is no doubt that the author will long be remembered for this book and in the hereafter it will be a means of great reward for him.

Moulānā Muhammad Sa’īd (   ), Sultānpūr The books of Punjab and U.P. and the book ‘Kalāme Àrabī’ of Meerut are non-entities in front of your book.

Moulānā Muhammad Siddīq Kīrānwī (   ) This humble servant has several books of this type e.g. Raudatul Adab, Kalāme Àrabī etc. However, the excellent manner in which you have presented the summary from Mīzān till Kāfiyah cannot be found in the above-mentioned books.

Moulānā Sa’īduddīn Khān (   ), Indor Indeed Arabic has been simplified. Your effort is worth congratulating.

Page 21 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor – Volume One Zamīndār, a newspaper of Lahore Without exaggeration, we can say that the learned author has achieved extraordinary success. In our opinion this book is worth including in the syllabi of all government and non-government schools where Arabic is taught. We specifically request the Punjab Text Book Committee to grant the students the opportunity to benefit from it.

Al-Jam’īat, a newspaper of Delhi “Arabī Kā Mu’allim” in reality conveys the meaning of its name – that is, it is an Arabic tutor. My desire is that the principals of Arabic institutes include it in their syllabi.

The Journal “Adabī Dunyā” of Delhī Many books have been written till now in the modern trend in order to simplify Arabic. I have seen practically all of them. However, the manner in which Moulanā Àbdus Sattār Khān has simplified a complex language such as Arabic cannot be found anywhere.

Page 22 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor – Volume One The newspaper “Zamzam” of Lahore The manner of teaching and understanding adopted in this book does not create any burden on the mind. Every fact is thoroughly learnt like a known fact. In our opinion there is no better series to promote Arabic. The Journal “Balāgh” of Amritsar Moulanā Àbdus Sattār Khān is entitled to congratulations for having converted this stone (Arabic Grammar) into water. He has explained all the rules from Mīzān till Kāfiyah in an easy-to-understand manner.

Ilāhī Bakhsh, Malaya I have ordered many books of Arabic Grammar and Morphology written in Urdu and English and have spent much money on them. But by Allāh, these books have no value in front of your book. I do not have sufficient powerful words to describe the assistance I have received from your book in learning Arabic. Even now, if a Muslim finds Arabic to be difficult, he is unfortunate and lacks courage.

Arabic Tutor – Volume One Janāb Muhammad Hazārībāgh

Hanīf,

Upper

Primary

School,

I had a desire to study Arabic for a long time. I used many books but it was futile. When I studied your book, I mastered Arabic in a very short while. The surprising thing was that I received no assistance from any teacher. Your book in reality is a mirror of the Arabic language.

Muhammad Sharafud-dīn, Hyderabad I thought that Arabic was so difficult that I could not even imagine learning it. However, as soon as I saw your book, my courage increased and I began studying it. I completed the first part in a few days. Now send me the second part. I do not think there is any book easier than this one.

Dr. Muhammad Àbdul Quddūs, Madras I read the first part of your book. It helped me tremendously to the extent that now I am able to write a few sentences in Arabic. Undoubtedly your book will create a great revolution.

Page 24 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One This amount of recommendation is sufficient for the one who understands; otherwise so many reviews were received that a separate book could be compiled for this purpose.

Indications 1) The inverted comma (a) is used to indicate the plural of a noun. 2) In order to refer to a particular lesson, the lesson number and fact number will be mentioned in brackets thus: (5-2) meaning lesson number 5, fact no. 2. 3) The (  ) of the verb is mentioned in brackets after it.

Notes 1) Do not start a new lesson until you have mastered the previous one. 2) Translate each exercise with particular care. 3) Sometimes you may not understand a point. Remain steadfast and seek the assistance of someone. Perhaps later on you will understand the point yourself.

Page 25 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One

Request A request is made to the teachers to study the book thoroughly before teaching it. During your teaching stint, you will be able to refer your students to previous lessons easily. There is no need to memorize the rules parrotfashion. As you continuously repeat the examples, the rules will become ingrained in your mind. You will also learn the Arabic terms at the same time. It is appropriate to teach the book twice. First teach it superfluously and then in detail the second time.

Translator's Note Translating is indeed a difficult task and I therefore do not claim to have fulfilled the right of translating this book. I ask the reader to overlook all shortcomings. Those attempting to translate any work of this calibre, will realize the great hurdles one has to overcome, especially where there are many technical terms involved. I have made an attempt to clarify the text as much as possible and simplify the rules so that the beginner can grasp them quickly. Where there was a need, I have added explanatory footnotes. Page 26 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor – Volume One The original Urdu text of the book contains many errors, especially in the Qur'ānic verses. I have corrected these in the English version. In many cases, I have used tables to enlist sentences or examples. This was done for the sake of greater clarity although the original text does not have such tables. Many new Arabic words used in the exercises have not been mentioned in the vocabulary. I have enlisted these as well. Many singular words did not have their plurals listed. I have included these also for the benefit of the students. I have used the arrow sign ( ) to indicate the direction of the text. In some cases, the text has to be read from left to right as in English, while in other instances, it has to be read from right to left as in Arabic. I have provided the English equivalents of the Arabic grammatical terminology for the sake of information. The student need not learn the English terms. If one learns the Arabic terms and understands them well, it is sufficient. May Allāh  accept this humble effort from me and make it a means for my salvation, Āmīn.

The Types of Nouns 2. Nouns are of two types: (1) (*\) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; definite and (2) (l?q) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; indefinite. An indefinite noun is a word which refers to a general thing. The word (  vP M ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a man, does not refer to any specific person. It can refer to any person. The word (9 t hÂ&#x20AC;b ) does not refer to any particular good thing. Every good thing can be called (9 t hÂ&#x20AC;b ). A definite noun refers to a specific thing. Zaid (Y=G) is the name of a particular person. Makkah (*?) is the name of a specific city. ( i vP m ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the man - refers to a specific person.

R).2 It is translated as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;anâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in English, e.g. (  vP M ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a man, (D t uVP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an apple, (^p M) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; water. There is no need to translate it everywhere as in the example of (^p M) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; water. Note 1: Sometimes a proper noun also has tanwÄŤn, e.g.

t $m g M P ), (0t$j M ), (Yt j=GM ). In such a case, the tanwÄŤn is not (Y regarded as a (>?%

R).

2. The definite article of Arabic is (r b).3 It is also called (

<=f).

.A

When (r b) is prefixed to any indefinite word, it

becomes definite. Now the word is termed as (./

R6) â&#x20AC;&#x201C;

See Terminology on page 22. This is similar to the letter â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in English. 3 It is similar to the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;theâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in English. 1 2

Consequently, (( t M \b) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a horse, is indefinite while (( P M Vb rb) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the horse, is definite. 3. When (r b) is prefixed to a word having tanwÄŤn, the tanwÄŤn falls off. Note the above example. 4. When any word precedes a word having (r b), the first word is joined to the lÄ m of the second word and pronounced (by joining). The hamzah of the (r b) is known

O j)Mr as hamzatul wasl.4 It is not pronounced, e.g. (Â&#x192;

P M ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the

door of the house. To read (Â&#x192; O j)Mrb P M ) here is incorrect. Note 2: If there is a sÄ kin letter before the (r b), the sÄ kin letter is normally read with a kasrah. However the word ( j O ) is read with a fathah. Therefore, (Â&#x192; O j)Mrb j M ) is read as (

the word ( P OMrb)

Note 3: The alif of ( t jO), (* %M jO) and (t "j O) is also hamzatul wasl. It is not pronounced when joined to the preceding word. Examples: ( t jO !M ,P ) is read as (t j

!M ,P ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; He is a son;

( t "j O bXÂ&#x2026;,) is read as (t "j 

bXÂ&#x2026;,) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This is a name; ( t jO Yt j=GM ) is read as (t j O YP j=GM ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Zaid is a son; ( t "j O Yt O M) is read as (t "j  O YP O M) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; HÄ mid is a name. When (r b) is prefixed to ( t jO) and (t "j O), the lÄ m of the (r b) is rendered a kasrah and joined to the ( ) and ((). Therefore ( P jOrb) is read as (P )jOb

= P jOb) and (P "j Orb) is read as ( = P "j Ob

P j Ob). This rule is overlooked in general conversation. 6. When (r b) is prefixed to a word having one of the letters of (* $_

R0Z), the lÄ m of the (r b) is assimilated into the

harf shamsÄŤ, that is, at the time of pronunciation, instead of reading the lÄ m, the harf shamsÄŤ is pronounced. No jazm is Page 37 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/

Lesson 4 Gender 1. Arabic words are of two types with regards to gender: (1) (t  u Xb P ) – masculine and (2) (z  qm`M P ) – feminine, e.g. (t jO) – son is masculine and (* %M jO) – daughter is feminine.

l

2. When a tā ta’nīth10 ( ) is appended to the end of a masculine noun, it becomes feminine, e.g. ( t jO) changes to (* %M j O). Similarly ( t M M ) changes to (* %M M M ) and (] t OM - king) changes to (* ? b OM - queen) etc. This rule applies more to adjectives (*V|

") and sometimes to (BX ").

3. In some words, the alif maqsūrah (…U) or the alif mamdūdah (^

(b) the names of countries, e.g. (P | j O ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Egypt, (.P m_b) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Syria, (.P 0j Â&#x161; b) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Roman Empire. (c) parts of the body in pairs, e.g. (Y t M=) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hand, ( vj O ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; foot, (  Fi -i) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ear, (t jM ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; eye.

The broken plural is one in which the form of the singular word is broken, that is, changed. It has no fixed rule for making it.

Since the word ( !j qP) is feminine in Arabic, the adjective also has to be

feminine, namely (* m OM j Â&#x201A;O).

Lesson 6 Sentences with a Noun - â&#x20AC;ŤŘ§  اâ&#x20AC;Ź 1. You have read that a complete statement is called a sentence (*ÂŁ). See 3.2. Remember that sentences are of two types: (*@

*ÂŁ) and (*\ *ÂŁ).

A (*@

*ÂŁ) is one in which the first part is a noun ("), e.g. ( t M M Yt j=GM ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Zaid is handsome. A (*\ *ÂŁ) is one in which the first part is a verb (\), e.g. t j=GM M P M ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Zaid became handsome. (Y Hereunder follow some rules of (*@

*ÂŁ) while the ( *ÂŁ

*\) will be discussed in Lesson 14. The first part of a (*@

*ÂŁ) is generally definite (*\) while the second part is indefinite (l?q). In the above example, the word (Y t j=GM ) is definite while (t M M ) is indefinite.

Page 64 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One Note 1: The difference between (*@

*ÂŁ)

and (

9x

V!) is that in the latter, both the parts are the same in being definite or indefinite while in the former, the first part is definite and the second part is indefinite. Consequently, in the above-mentioned example, if an indefinite noun takes the place of the word (Y t j=GM ) and you say (t M M

 vP M ), or you render the second word ( t M M ) definite by adding (r b) to it, and say ( P Mg M r O YP j=GM ), both these will become adjectival phrases (V! 9x).

However, when the second part of a (*@

*ÂŁ) is not a word

that can become an adjective of a noun24, it is permissible for the second part also to be definite, e.g. (< P "P !j P=

Mq-b) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I am YĹŤsuf.

It is also permissible to insert a separating pronoun (j $ O' M) between the subject (Yf)) and the predicate (§Â&#x160;). Examples: (Â&#x2020; P Om|

!M ,P i vP m b) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The man is pious. ( b !j g P O| m  P ,P i Mvh b) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The men are pious.

24

For example, it is ( "), (>$') or (l: ").

Page 65 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One If the pronoun is removed from here, these sentences will become adjectival phrases (V!

9x).

Note 2: In Arabic, there is no word for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;isâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; as in English. This word is understood from the sentence. Therefore ( t OM

Yt j=GM ) means â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Zaid is learnedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; although the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;isâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is

not there.25 3. The first part of a (*@

*ÂŁ) is called (Yf)) - the subject26, while the second part is called the (§Â&#x160;) - the predicate27. 4. Generally the (Yf)) and the (§Â&#x160;) are in (w\ *)28 - the nominative case. 5. The predicate conforms to the subject in number and gender, as in the case of the adjective. However when the

o #OM subject is (

O jÂ?b wP $j vM )

- the plural of a non-intelligent

being, the predicate is generally singular feminine.

25

However, the verb (i!j ?i M=) can provide the meaning of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;isâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

In English, the subject of a sentence is a word or phrase that refers to the person or thing that performs an action. 27 In English, the predicate refers to the word or words that say something about the subject but are not part of it. 28 A detailed discussion on cases follows in Lesson 10. 26

Page 66 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One Examples: Sentence

S t O M i vP m b O b#O M O bvP m b b !j #iO M i Mvh b

Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One to the second part, or it is removed from the first part, all these examples will become (V!

Lesson 7 The Genitive of Possession ( 



   )

1. The compound in which both parts are nouns and the first noun is related to the second noun is called (

9 t u M P

Â? \OM'Â&#x201A;O). Examples: (Y o j=GM P MfO ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the book of Zaid or Zaidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book m \O P MMÂ&#x160;) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the ring of silver (*o [ (O j %m ^e M) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the water of the river. 2. Such a relationship between the two nouns is known as (*i \bM'Â&#x153;Orb). 3. The first part of ('

9) is called (R t M[P ) while the second part is called (O j bÂ&#x201A;O R t M[P ).

4. Neither does the definite article (r -b) precede the (R t M[P ) nor is the tanwÄŤn appended to it. Look at the above examples. Page 77 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One 5. The (O j bÂ&#x201A;O R t M[P ) is always (t 0j P { j M ) - in the genitive case. 6. The (R t M[P ) always precedes the (O jbÂ&#x201A;O R t M[P ). 7. The ('

9), like (V! 9)31, is not a complete sentence but is part of a sentence, e.g. ( t Xr M O j %m ^e M) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The water of the river is sweet. In this sentence, (O j %m ^e M) is the subject while ( t Xr M ) is the predicate. 8. Sometimes there are several (O jbÂ&#x201A;O

R t M[P )

in one

construction, e.g. (O j O ybr

Â&#x192; O j M P M ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the door of the house of the leader; (O j=GO !M r  O j Â&#x192; O j M P M ) - the door of the house of the ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son. The middle (O j bÂ&#x201A;O

R t M[P )

becomes the (R t M[P ) of the

succeeding words. Therefore (r -b) cannot precede it nor can the tanwÄŤn be appended to it. 9. You have learnt in the first lesson that when an indefinite

See 3.8.

Arabic Tutor – Volume One noun is related to a definite noun, it also becomes definite,

o j=GM e.g. (Y

.P / b i ) – the slave of Zaid; ( O vP m  .P / b i ) the slave of the man. The word (.P / b i ) – slave –

has become definite in these sentences. 10. In Arabic, because the (R t M[P ) precedes the (O jb‚O

R t M[P )

and no word can interpose between them, the adjective of the (R t M[P ) has to succeed the (O jb‚O R t M[P ), e.g. († P Om|

Lesson 8 The Scales of Words 1. In Arabic, the original letters of nouns and verbs are not less than three. The maximum number of letters in a noun is five, and four in a verb. Together with the original letters, extra letters can also be attached. At such a time, the noun and the verb can have more than five letters. Note 1: The original letter or root letter is the one that remains in all the forms and derivations. Only in some exceptions is it deleted or changed to another letter. The extra letter is the one that is found in one word-form but not in another, e.g. in the word (Y t $j M ), all three letters are root letters while in (Y t O M), the alif and in (t !j $P g j M ), the first (.) and the (0) are extra letters. 2. Words having three root-letters are called ( Â? Â&#x2030;O/ b Â&#x2030;i), e.g. (( t M \b) and ( M M ' M ). If they have four root-letters, they are called ( Â? O M P ), e.g. (  VO r \O) and (C M M j M ).

Page 88 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One If they have five root-letters, they are called ( Â? "O M$Â&#x160;P ), e.g. (  vM j Vb "M ). Words made up of only root-letters are called (t m { M P ) while those having extra letters as well are called (O j \O

letters, then its derivatives and verbal noun will also be regarded as (t m { M P ), e.g. (M | M qM) is (t m { M P

") - t  O Mq, the ( !V ") - t !j | P %jM and the verbal noun (l M | j qP) will also be regarded as (t m { M P Â? Â&#x2030;O/ b Â&#x2030;i) although these forms have extra

letters. Similarly, in a paradigm, extra letters appear in a (t m { M P ) word which will still remain (t m { M P ). For example, the word (  vP M ) is (t m { M P ). Therefore, (O / b vP M ) and ( MvO ) will also be (t m { M P ). However, (M )m b ) and (.M M r -b) are (O j\O

Yt j=}O M Â? Â&#x2030;O/ b Â&#x2030;i). The former has

one extra ( ) while the latter has an extra alif. 3. In order to determine the scales of words and to distinguish the root letters from the extra letters, the scale (M}j O ) of (

N R) is used. In triliteral words (words with 3 root letters), the (R) represents the first radical (letter) of the word, the (N) represents the second radical of the word

and the ( ) represents the third radical of the word.

The letter that corresponds to the (R) of the (}) is called the (Ů?*M$O? b r

^e b\), like the (S) of (t b#b), that which corresponds to the (N) is called the (Ů?*M$O? b r P jM ), like the ( ) of (t b#b) while the letter corresponding to the ( ) is called the (Ů?*M$O? b r .P Ab ), like the (.) of ( t b#b). When intending to determine the scale of ( Â? O M P ) quadriliteral (four letter) words, add two lÄ ms instead of one after (R) and (N). In words with five root letters, add three lÄ ms. Examples:

t dbVdjdMv

 dMvj dbVdM"

 dbdrdMdb\ Page 91

Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One 4. At the time of determining the scale, the alphabets (R), (N) and ( ) will take the place of the original letters while the other extra letters will remain as they are in their places. Examples:

t dj)dO

t djdO)db

P dM)dr-b

t djdO)dr?dM

 djdO\

 djdOdb\

i dMdr\-b

However, when a letter is increased by repeating the (

P jM

Ů?*M$O? b r) or the (Ů?*M$O?b r

.P Ab ), the (N) or the ( ) is repeated in the scale. For example, in the word (M dM 9 j db = M )mb ), the first ( ) is the (Ů?*M$O? b r P jM ) while the second one is extra. b )Mj \b). According to the rule, the scale should have been ( Instead its scale is ( b m \b). Similarly, in the word (m $M j Â&#x201A;O), the final () is extra. Its scale will be regarded as ( u M \r Â&#x201A;O).

5. A great benefit of recognizing the scales of words is that by knowing the meaning of the root letters of a word, it becomes very easy to recognize the meanings of all its paradigms and derivatives. Page 92 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/

Lesson 10 The Cases of Nouns 1. The change in case of a noun due to the change in vowelling of the final consonant is called ( ) declension.

b M g M r O Declension is of two types: one is (*

) which is

shown by fathah, dammah and kasrah. The other is (R0j P g P r O

)

which is shown by means of some

(Rj0P  P ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; letters - as will be explained later on. 2. When a noun is: (1) the doer of the verb (\), or the subject (Yf)) or predicate (§Â&#x160;), it is said to be (w\

*) - in the

nominative case. The examples of the subject and predicate have passed in Lesson no. 6. (2) an object (

!V) or it indicates the condition ( )

of the doer or the object, it is regarded to be in (9|%

*) - the accusative case. (3) ( R[) or it comes after a (v R),

it is

examples will be mentioned shortly.

The Signs of Declension of Different Nouns 3. If a noun is singular or a broken plural, in (w\ dammatain (d p )39 will be read on fathatain (nd) will be read on it

*) the it, in (9|% *) the and in (6 + *), the

kasratain (d o ) will be read on it.

If the noun is indefinite, the dammatain will be read on the word. However, if the noun is definite, only one dammah will be read on it.

also be (N!\). If it is ( !|%), the adjective will also be the same and if it is (0Âą), the adjective will follow suit.

A learned man sent a long letter to a just king. The words, ( t OM), (/ Âł j=!O Â&#x20AC;b ) and (o

O M) are adjectives and the case of each one follows its preceding noun, namely (  vP M ), (² !j fP? r M ) and (o O M) respectively. 4. If a noun is dual (*%5d), the suffix ( O appended in (w\ (6 +0

will be

*) - the nominative case and (O j= cd) in

The words (/ b O ) and (Mfr O ) meaning â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bothâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; will be read (j bO ) Page 112 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/

( O M)rybr

- I saw the people of

intelligence by the people of intelligence. Note 2: The ( ) of the dual and sound masculine plural is by means of letters (R0). Therefore the nĹŤn of both these forms is called (* 

!q). See 5.4.

6. The sound feminine plural (´ 

zq`¢ w$+) will be read with (d p ) in (w\ *) and with (d o )40 in (6 +0 9|% *). See 5.2. Example:

If the word has (r b), only one dammah or kasrah will be read as is apparent

from the example.

Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One expelled the transgressing women to the deserts. 7. You have learnt that when (r b) is prefixed to a word, the tanwÄŤn is deleted. See 2.3. Now remember that some words do not accept the tanwÄŤn from their inception. Examples: (*i ? u M ), (P | j O ), (YP $M j -b), (i M$5rP ), (9 P %Mj=GM ), (*i g M r Â&#x20AC;b ), (^e M$j M ), (Y P vO M M ). Such nouns are called (R|%

>Â? "). In (w\ *), they are pronounced with a (ed) and in (6 +0 9|% *) with a (cd), e.g.

(*b ? u M

j \O 9 M %Mj=GM i M$5rP Ub-M ) -

Ă&#x161;thmÄ n saw Zaynab in Makkah.

However, when an (R|%

>Â? ") has (r b) prefixed to it, or it is (R[), then a kasrah will be rendered to it in (6 + *). Examples: (Y O vO M $M r O\), (M j$O O j $P r YO vO M M j \O). Note 3: Words which accept tanwÄŤn are called (R|%). These nouns will be discussed in detail in Lesson 57. 8. No ( ) can be read on words like (Â Â&#x2026;"!j P ) and (Â Â&#x2026; j  O ). Page 115 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/

particles are several of

which (M=) is the most commonly used one. The word to which the vocative particle is prefixed, is called (Â&#x201E;Â&#x2026;M%$ P rb).

man.

P rb) is (R[), a fathah will be read on the final If the („…M%$ letter of the (R[), e.g. (( O m%

If the („…M%$ P rb) has ( ), the particle (Mš=-b) for masculine and (MfPdm=-b) for feminine should be attached to it, e.g. ( i vP m

i šM Example: (M$? ( j ?i šM

M$?i O…F) – That is the Lord of you two.

e  P ?i O…F) – That Allāh is your Lord.

Note 4: Besides the dual form, all the remaining (

^e M$"j -b

lO M M:œOr) are (j %O)jd$M rb) - indeclinable. 2. The object pointed to is called the (O j b‚O

t M_P ).

The (

"

l:8) together with the (O jb‚O t M_P ) form part of a sentence, namely the subject, doer or object, just as in (V! 9) and ('‚ 9). 3. The (O j b‚O t M_P ) will always have ( ) or be (R[). 4. If the (O j b‚O

t M_P )

has ( ) attached to it, the (l:8

must be mentioned first, e.g. ( P Mf?O r

")

bX…,) – this book.

If it is (R[) towards another noun, the (l:8

") will

] O O$M r P jO) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this son of the king.

In the above-mentioned phrases, if the (l:8

")

is

brought first, and it is said, ( j ?i PMfO

bXÂ&#x2026;,), the meaning will be, j ?i PMfO ) is no more â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is your book.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In this case, the word ( the (O j bÂ&#x201A;O t M_P ) but will become the predicate. It will now be a complete sentence. 5. If the (l:8

") occurs as the subject of a sentence without the (O j bÂ&#x201A;O t M_P ), then: (a) if the predicate has ( ), insert a pronoun (>$') between the (l:8 ") and the (§Â&#x160;). This pronoun will correspond in word-form to the (l:8 ") as you learnt in Lesson 6. Examples: ( P Mf?O r !M ,P bXÂ&#x2026;,) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This is the book. ( b !j g P OVr $P r P ,P ] M ŠOAb 0i-) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Those people are the successful ones. In these examples, the (O j bÂ&#x201A;O sentences are ( P Mf?O r

b !j g P OVr $P r). (b) If the predicate does not have ( ), a pronoun will not be inserted, e.g. ( t MfO

bXÂ&#x2026;,)

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this is a book. The (O j bÂ&#x201A;O

t M_P )

is

implied in this example as well. (c) If it is (R[), then too there is no need for a pronoun, e.g. (] O O$M r ( j ?i PMfO

P jO bXÂ&#x2026;,) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This is the kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son.

bXÂ&#x2026;,) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This is your book.

However, if you want to create emphasis in your speech, insert a pronoun, e.g.

j ?i PMfO (

!M ,P bXÂ&#x2026;,) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This is your book. (] O O$M r P jO !M ,P TM bF) - That is the kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son. Note 5: Understand well the difference between (bXÂ&#x2026;,

] O O$M r P jO) and (] O O$M r P jO bXÂ&#x2026;,).

Note 6: The words (M%P Â&#x2026;,), - here, (M%, P ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; here, and (TM M%,P ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there, are also indicative pronouns. There are no particular rules for their usage.

Note 1: Besides (U  -b) and (* m=-b), all the interrogative pronouns are ( j %O)jd$M rb). See 10.9. Note 2: You have read in Lesson 6 Note 4 that the particles

r ,M ) and (-b) create the interrogative meaning in the sentence. ( They are both particles (R0) of interrogation. That is, they cannot form the subject or doer of a sentence. On the other hand, the interrogative pronouns can become the subject or doer or object of a sentence. 2. The (.Vf"A

^@-) - interrogative pronouns – are used at

the beginning of sentences, e.g. (ª

TM !j P-b j M ) – Who is your father? However, when they are ( R[), they will follow the (R[) according to the normal rule, e.g. ( j M P MfO ) – whose book. The particle (O ) can be inserted before the (.Vf"A

4. Sometimes the word (M) is joined to the (lv

R0)

without the alif. Therefore (M$O) becomes ( M O), (m$M ) becomes ( m M ) and (M$j\O) becomes (M j\O). 5. The words (U Â? -b) and (* m=-b) are (R[) to the succeeding words, e.g. ( o vP M

U Â&#x161; -b) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which man, (O Mvh  U Â&#x161; -b) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which of the men, (lo -Mj  *i m=-b) - which woman, (^O M %h *i m=-b) which of the women. If the word after (U Â? -b) is indefinite, it will be singular and if it is definite, it will be plural. 6. The word succeeding ( j b ) is ( !|%) - in the accusative case and it is singular, e.g. (T M YM %jO

²$,M j O j b )

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; How many

*Âł %M"M j b )

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; What is your age? (Literally: How many

years is your age?â&#x20AC;?) 7. Sometimes the word ( j b ) is not used for interrogation but for providing information. It is called (*m=O )MÂ&#x160; M

).

Its

meaning in that case will be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;severalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;manyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Page 155 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/

Lesson 14 The Verb 1. Verbs are of two types: (1) one is ('¢) which indicates that an action has been completed, e.g. (9 M fMb ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he wrote. (2) the second is (N[¢) which indicates that an action has not been completed but is being done or will be done, e.g. (9 P fP?r M=) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he is writing or he will write. Some morphologists51 regard the imperative (-) as a third category of verbs. Generally a verb has three root letters (OÂ&#x2030;/ b Â&#x2030;i), e.g. (9 M fMb ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he

M vM j M) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; wrote. Some verbs have four root letters (OM P ), e.g. ( he translated. Note 1: The root letters of a word are called (l m M ). In verbs, the (9ŠÂ?

X Y0)

third person singular word-form

contains only the root letters to the extent that recognizing

Page 166 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One the root letters of the verbal noun (Y|) and all the derivatives (B2f_) are based on this word-form. In order to indicate the meaning of the verbal noun, it is appropriate to write this word-form - (9ŠÂ?

X Y0)

- so that the

student can apprize himself of the root letters. Hence we can say that (9 M fMb ) means to write although originally its meaning is, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;he wroteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. However, if you want to speak of the meaning expressed by the verbal noun, you should use the verbal noun, e.g. (lb ^c M2O rM0

*b MMf?O r !P$uM M) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Learn writing O rb) is the (Y|) -verbal noun of and reading. The word (*b MMf? (9 M fMb ) while (lb ^c M2O rb) is the verbal noun of (-bM #b). 3. The (9ŠÂ?

X Y0) third person singular word-form of

('¢) - the past tense (or perfect tense) comes on the scales of ( b M \b), (b O \b) and (b P \b). Examples: ( M M ' M ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he hit, (wM $O "M ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he heard and (.M P  b ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he was noble. Details of this will be provided in Lesson 16 while the quadriliteral verb ( ) will be discussed in Lesson 25. All the word forms of the past tense are as follows:

Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One Note 2: The total number of word forms are 18 but only 14 are mentioned because the meanings of all are included in these 14 forms. Then there is no need to repeat one word several times. However, among the 14 word-forms, the verb

b ) is repeated. There was no need for it but due to a (M$fP)j fM certain expediency, the custom of repeating it has been formed. Note 3: Every word-form of the verb has a pronoun of the (\) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; doer. These pronouns are called (*|f

*!\ Š$') â&#x20AC;&#x201C; attached pronouns in the nominative

case. Note 4: When joining the verb (Â&#x192; j )MfMb ) to the succeeding word, delete the final sukĹŤn (jazm) and replace it with a kasrah, e.g. ( M !j fP?r $M r

*i $M Â&#x2013;M $P r Â&#x192; O )MfMb )

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The teacher wrote the

letter. The alif and (0) of those words which have them at the end will not be pronounced when joining them to the succeeding word, e.g. ( M !j fP?r $M r

)MfMb O / b vP m b) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The two men wrote the letter. ( M !j fP?r $M r !)PfMb i Mvh b) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The men wrote the letter.

Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One 5. The verbs on the scales of ( b O \b) and (b P \b) will also be conjugated like the above:

M% jO :M ... M jO :M a Mf MO :M a Â&#x192; j MO :M a j! PO :M a M O:M a M O :M M%j P b ... a M j P b a MfM P b a Â&#x192; j M P b a j!P P b a MP b a .M P b 6. The scales of ( b M \b), (b O \b) and (b P \b) are of (R0¢

'¢) â&#x20AC;&#x201C;

!Âą) passive tense52 of all these forms appears on the scale of ( b O \i). Examples: from (9 M fMb ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; (9 M fOi ), ( M O :M ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ( M O :P ), (.M P b ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; (.M O i ). the past active tense. The (

No (\) is mentioned with the (

!Âą) - passive verb. Only the ( !V â&#x20AC;&#x201C; object) which is now called the (ŠV 9Šq) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; representative of the doer - is mentioned. Like the (\), it is rendered (w\), e.g. ( P )Mu M O :P ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The milk was drunk. This sentence does not indicate who drank the milk.

When one wants to indicate the person/item on which the action is done without mentioning the doer, the passive verb is used, e.g. The book was taken.

52

Page 170 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One 7. By inserting (M) before ('¢) - the perfect tense, it becomes negative, e.g. (9 M fMb

M) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; He did not write. ( M O :M M)

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; He did not drink.

j #b) or (Yj 2b b) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; undoubtedly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is added 8. Very often the word (Y to ('¢) - the perfect tense to create emphasis in the meaning. However, there is no need to translate it always, e.g. (²$ j M

Yt j=GM M M ' M Yj #b) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Undoubtedly Zaid hit Bakr or Zaid

hit Bakr. 9. You read in the sixth lesson that a sentence beginning with a verb is called (*\

*$vP ). In a (*\ *$Pv), the (\)

which is in (w\

*) - the nominative case - generally follows the verb, e.g. (Y t j=GM Â&#x2C6; M bvM ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Zaid sat. If it is a ( V U j Yh M fM$P r) transitive verb53, the third part of the sentence is the ( !V) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the object - which is in (9|% *) - the accusative case. See Lesson 10. Example: (²})jÂ&#x160; P

53

Yt j=GM b b -b) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Zaid ate bread.

A transitive verb is one that requires an object to form a complete sentence.

Page 171 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One Besides these, the other parts of the sentence are called the

Og j u (Bb2Â&#x2013;M fMP ), e.g. (

wM M ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with the

meat, (Â&#x192; O j)Mr

O\) - in the

house, (.M !j Mrb) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; today etc. Sometimes the (

!V)

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; object â&#x20AC;&#x201C; precedes the (\) and

sometimes it even precedes the verb. Similarly, the (Bb2Â&#x2013;M fMP ) can also precede the (\), the ( ( j ?i %Mj=O

!V) and the verb, e.g.

j ?i b Â&#x192; P r $M r -b .M !j Mrb)

Today I have perfected your religion for you.

j ?i b) are the (Bb2Â&#x2013;M fMP ) in this sentence. The words (.M !j Mrb) and ( The former preceded the verb while the latter preceded the (

!V).

10. In a (*\

*$Pv),

the verb always remains singular

whether the doer of the action is dual or plural. However for a masculine doer, the verb will be masculine and for a feminine doer, the verb will be feminine. Examples: (Y t b0M

9 M fMb ) - A boy wrote. ( O MYb0M 9 M fMb ) - Two boys wrote. Page 172 Madrassah Inaamiyyah Camperdown - http://www.al-inaam.com/


Arabic Tutor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volume One (t A b 0j -b 9 M fMb ) - Many boys wrote. (* %M j O Â&#x192; j )MfMb ) - A girl wrote. ( O Mf%M jO Â&#x192; j )MfMb ) - Two girls wrote. (B t M% M

Â&#x192; j )MfMb ) -

Many girls wrote.

However, if the (\) comes first, then the verb must correspond to the (\). The details of this rule will be mentioned in Lesson 18.

Vocabulary List No. 12 Note: In the list below, each verb is written with both the ('¢) - perfect and (N[¢) - imperfect tenses. Conjugate each verb according to the previously mentioned paradigm. Then construct the (

V) imperfect also comes on three scales: ( i M Vr M=), (i O Vr M=) and (i P Vr M=). The (N[¢) - imperfect of (Â&#x2020; M fM\b) is (Â&#x2020;P fMVr M=), of ( M M ' M ) is ( P O [ j M=) and of (.M P  b ) is (.P P ?r M=). The details will follow in Lesson 16.

Note 1: The words (Â&#x2020; P fMVr M) and (O MgfMVr M) appear several times in the paradigm. Understand them well. One has to see the context to determine the meaning. Note 2: As in ('¢) - the perfect tense, the (N[¢

V) -

imperfect also has fourteen word-forms.

V) specific with the future tense, the particles (( M ) or (R M !j "M ) are prefixed to it, e.g. (Â&#x2020; P fMVr M"M ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; He will soon open. (b !j $P bj M R M !j "M ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; You will come to know. 6. You know that (Š$') - pronouns are used in place of the

!V) - object. In Arabic, there are two types of pronouns: (a) (O|fmP ) - those pronouns which are attached to the verb, (b) (O|Vb %j P ) - those pronouns which are independent and (
