It is not possible to fully understand the literary heritage of Islam, without knowledge of the Quran in Arabic - the highest form of Arabic that will ever exist. Since it was revealed and until today, the Quran has transformed hearts simply through hearing it being recited or read in Arabic. It is for this reason that Muslims have turned the art of Islamic calligraphy, into the highest art form of all, simply because it is the art of writing the word of God.

This weekly class will focus on teaching Arabic through the medium of the Quran, hadiths (traditions and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings upon him) and Islamic calligraphy. It will serve as a window of knowledge into the spiritual world of Muslims and their culture of Islam and enable students to learn enough Arabic to be able to begin to read, write and understand the Quran in its original language...
