Men program

LEARNER’S EXPECTED LEVEL : No notion of Arabic. Does not know how to read, or write, no vocabulary.

DESCRIPTION:Two weekly sessions of two hours. During the week, Mondays and Thursdays, or during the weekend (Saturdays and Sundays). For the first year, two books have been designed by the association. During the study of the first book entitled Alif Ba each student can progress at their own pace. Once the first book is completed (at the end of December), the student will study the second one to memorise the vocabulary (approximately 300 words).

END OF YEAR RESULTS:With Alif Ba, in 48 hours (24 sessions of 2 hours spread out until December) the student will be able to read and write. With the vocabulary book, the student would have acquired some words of vocabulary and would then be able to build simple sentences In cha Allah.

LEARNER’S EXPECTED LEVEL : Students able to read with difficulties. Little vocabulary.

DESCRIPTION:Two weekly sessions of two hours. The courses take place during the week (on Mondays / Thursdays or Tuesdays / Fridays) or during the weekend (Saturdays and Sundays). Only one text book for this year, An-nahu alwadih. The program is based on the memorisation of vocabulary (grammar and daily life) and on learning the grammatical rules (examples, exercises and memorisation of definitions).

END OF YEAR RESULTS:This second year prepares to the third year of the curriculum. At the end of this 2nd year, students would have studied and memorised a number of rules enabling them to express themselves in Arabic (both orally and in writing) without making grammatical errors. At the end of this year, the pupil would be able to converse with Arabic speakers and understand almost a full Friday sermon (Khutba). They would also be fluent readers.

LEARNER’S EXPECTED LEVEL: Some basic knowledge of vocabulary but gaps in grammar (for the one who would not have attended Level 2 at Dar El Hikma).

DESCRIPTION: Two weekly sessions of two hours. Courses take place during the week (on Monday / Thursday or Tuesday / Friday) or in the weekend (Saturdays and Sundays). The study of Arabic texts (moutounes) starts from this year: Al-ajuroomiya, Muthallath Al-Qutroob and the first chapter of Lamiyatu-l-af’al (the memorisation of these 3 books is COMPULSORY).

Al-ajuroomiya is a poem of 134 verses (divided into 32 chapters). The method taught is the one of the righteous predecessors. During each session, a chapter will be studied (each chapter corresponding to a grammar rule) in details with the explanation of the verses. Following the same method, students will study the second book, in February. It is a poem which enables the memorisation of new vocabulary. In April, students will study the first verses of the poem entitled Lamiyatu-l-af’al (science of Sarf/conjugation). END OF YEAR RESULTS: Students would have acquired a strong foundation in the Arabic grammar allowing them to appreciate and understand the Qur’an and the Hadiths better. At the end of this year students would be expected to read with ease and sometimes even without using accents. They could take advantage of courses in Arabic language. They could converse with Arabic-speakers.

DESCRIPTION : Only the students of the association can attend the courses of the levels 4-7. The first book studied in the level 4 is entitled Lamiyatu-l-af’al. A second Arabic textbook (Matn) will be studied. It is Miyat Al-bayaan wa Al-ma'any (science of Al Balagha/eloquence).

Three Mutoons are included in the program of level 5. Students will study the fundamentals of the jurisprudence. During the year, the students will have to draft a "mini-report" on one of the chapters of Matn Al Waraqat.

The book studied in levels 6 and 7 is entitled Ar-rissala (malikite jurisprudence). A class of oral expression is also offered to members. It is a full course based on a set of books and videos allowing students to express themselves in Arabic and to apply the rules studied during the year.

DESCRIPTION :Many courses included in the package are open to members of Dar El Hikma. Take advantage of the reading club to get used to hear spoken Arabic and to discover the greatest works of our heritage.

Lateness or lack of understanding during the session is not a problem, not to worry…..participate in the revision sessions. It is you who makes the programme!!! The importance of the Arabic language in the study of Islamic knowledge, the behaviour of the scholar and the students, how to study the creed and from whom we can take this knowledge, … so many topics which will be covered during the seminars of Saturday evening. These are occasional meetings you must not miss due the wealth of knowledge one could gain from them.

Learning the 40 Hadiths of Imam An-nawawi as well as their explanation, is possible and it is 4h/week at Dar El Hikma. It will then be suggested to students to study the three fundamental principles (Usool ath-thalatha) as well as a poem of 100 verses summarizing the life of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم).
