Short Courses of Arabic Language


International Islamic university has a strong background in the field of Arabic Language for 25 years. It has distinguished faculty from Al-Azhar University Egypt and Sudan, Iraq and Pakistan with an outstanding internationally recognized extensive syllabus and modern Language Labs fully equipped with Audio visual facilities. Being the Language of Quran, Hadith and other Shari’a sources, Arabic Language has an extra ordinary status among the other languages in Muslim societies. Along with its contemporary importance in the world. Keeping all this in view the academic council of the International Islamic University has approved the establishment of Arabic Language Center under the Faculty of Arabic to start Short Courses for the general Public and to contribute to the Pakistani Society. These short Courses have been started in February 2009. The University unexpectedly received an overwhelming response. A large number of professionals from different fields joined these courses to understand Quran and for spoken purposes. And after 6 months of its Beginning University was requested to start courses on Sundays. This request came from the professionals that they can join these courses on Holiday rather than their hectic working days. Many people from many organizations like PTCL, Police, Banks, Universities, PTA, Pak Army, and Doctors, Engineers, bearcats’, house wives and students have benefited from this opportunity since February 2009. Arabic Language Center eagerly tries to get the feed back from the people in order to improve its courses to give the people more benefit from these courses. After it had offered Arabic Language Courses in two disciplines i.e. Quranic Arabic and Spoken Arabic the Center concluded that A comprehensive Syllabus may be introduced to Quran directly and to have expression power through speaking (The Course outlines are enclosed with this page). Another distinction of Arabic Language Center is that separate classes are being arranged for males and females.
