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 Verbs in the past tense

Bismillah,

My year 8s, 9s and 10s are learning 20 verbs that are oft-mentioned in the Qur’an, a useful list which I can work from to help teach concepts such as conjugations in the different tenses, nouns, and keywords in the Qur’an by extension.

E.g. By learning the verb “s-j-d” سَجَدَ  I can help students with past/present tense conjugation for the different subject pronouns and help them identify nouns that are created out of this verb e.g. “masjid”. So the verb roots are really the key to making students feel confident in exploring the Qur’an.

Here is a worksheet I will be using in this week’s lesson to review

  • Past Tense conjugation
  • 20 verbs + English meaning
  • Subject pronouns

Arabic attached/possessive pronouns

Bismillah,

Here is a worksheet to help review possessive pronouns (attached pronouns). It helps students to identify the possessive in the English sentence and then translate that into the Arabic pronoun they have been taught.

I’m using this worksheet with students who need more revision on this topic and this worksheet inshallah will give them the chance to review them in a format that isn’t my usual table format.

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.
