Qur’anic Arabic Vocabulary

Bismillah,

Up for a challenge? Use the following worksheet will help you learn at least 20 keywords that regularly occur through out the Qur’an.

I will be using this worksheet with my Year 10s to help them revise the 20 words. I’ve uploaded the keywords and example ayaahs here for those of you who are learning them for the first time.

With Ramadan coming up – it will be useful to learn keywords to understand the Qur’an in Arabic as you recite it during the day, in prayers, in Taraweeh and when the Imam recites ayaat containing these keywords.

Arabic worksheet: Short Surahs

Bismillah,

Here is a worksheet that was used in Class 6 as a test to revise topics they had learnt in Arabic class. Topics include: Keywords of Surah al-Fatiha, al-Falaq, al-Ahad and al-Nas, joining rules, arabic handwriting practice (writing the basmalah) and the sun and moon letters.

This worksheet is a glimpse at how Arabic is taught at my school i.e. mainly using short surahs/juzz Amma as a basis for learning Arabic handwriting and grammar, as well, and most importantly for learning the meaning/tafsir behind the short surahs.

Kids Halaqa (7): Surah al-Nasr

Bismillah,

The last session of the Kids Halaqa was focused on the Tafsir of Surah al-Nasr.

Download the Lesson plan for this Session HERE

Download the Kids Tafsir worksheet from HERE

Alhamdolillah, I found a lovely breakdown of the Tafsir of Surah al-Nasr explained by Brother Nouman Ali Khan.

A lovely, short video which challenged the older girls and allowed them to engage with the Surah on a deeper level.

The video I used is below:

Working off the Tafsir of this Surah, I focused on the theme of seeking of forgiveness from Allah and specifically the du3a of Yunus when he was in the belly of the whale. I felt I hadn’t given this aspect of the story more attention in the Pumpkin party.

So the girls in pairs brainstormed what steps might be involved in seeking forgiveness. Which then led to the following activity:

Kids then coloured in the whales in their chosen shade of blue. I decided to use these little double sided squares to stick the cut out onto the clothes peg.

The little mini Surahs that show up in the middle need some adjustment to make sure it can be seen clearly – play around with it a little bit and it should work out. Interestingly, this turned out to be a good revision resource for this little dua3.

HERE is a website with clear pictures and instructions on how to put together the above activity!

The end result…

Arabic Verbs matching game

Bismillah,

Here is an activity I created and used with my 3 classes. It was a good way of helping the girls review the verb list I handed out to them. Check this post out to get your hands on the pdf of a list of verbs oft-used in the Qur’an.

Here is a picture of one of the works by a team who managed to put it all together and presented the game in their own creative way 🙂

Preparation:

I printed the sheets out in colour and laminated each sheet. I then cut out each image (apples) leaving a thin white border around it. Then, I cut each apples in half. I stored each set of verbs in mini ziploc bags.

How I used this resource:

I then asked the girls to place a tick around the verbs they were already familiar with on the page (cover the English to see which ones they could translate without looking).  I then handed out the resources which was played in pairs. Mashallah, the girls got on very well.

Benefits of pair-work:

Students love working together and helping each other. Pair up students who are different abilities to allow them to teach each other and learn not only the material but soft skills too e.g. patience, politeness. The benefits will show up as better class cohesion and healthy competition.

Bismillah,

Here is a jigsaw type activity that I have put together to help the girls review Arabic present tense conjugation parts.  To help them see the different parts that make up present tense for each subject pronoun.

Laminate the sheets and store in a sealed bag and re-use as needed. I’m going to make this a pair activity so I will only need half the number I would’ve needed.
