Qur’anic Arabic translation activity

Bismillah,

One of the goals of Al Barakah Arabic department is to help students with the ability to translate the surahs found in Juzz `Amma by themselves. This is done through the teaching of keywords/vocabulary found in the surah and simple grammar points that can be found within a specific surah. The children also learn the Tafsir – themes and context of the Surah. I think it’s a great way for non-native Arabic speaking children to connect with the Qur’an and the curriculum is fantastic! (Not because I designed the advance Arabic textbooks but because the organisers are so passionate that only Qur’anic Arabic is taught – any other kind of Arabic can be learnt any where else).

So here is a translation worksheet  I’ve designed to informally test how much of the previously learnt keywords they have retained and to pass along the translation techniques I myself picked up at Oxford.
