Description from the publisher:
Most people need to know Arabic primarily to understand the Quran. The MELS Access to Quranic Arabic course is an attempt to meet this crucial and pressing need, in part.
The aim is to enable users to understand, quickly and accurately, much of what the read.
The Access to Qur’anic Arabic course is for those who can read and write the Arabic script.
From this course, you will be able to:
• Get a good basic understanding of Arabic grammar and structure – essential for the further study of the language.
• Understand much of the Qur’an, and quickly.
The course is based on word frequency in the Qur’an. All words, phrases, and sentence structures used are from the Qur’an.
The Textbook covers the basic grammar and structure of Arabic using Quranic words, phrases and sentences throughout. It uses three Word Lists – with words occurring over 100 times, between 50 and 100 times, and between 25 and 49 times in the Quran.
The Workbook has two pages of stimulating exercises for each Unit of the Textbook.
Users are taught to use unvowelled Arabic script from Unit 4 – a step towards the use of Arabic as it appears in books and newspapers.
The Selections from the Qur’an contain words that occur frequently and illustrate points of Arabic grammar and structure. Parallel translation, new vocabulary and notes in English are also given in an easy to follow format.
Each of the 110 Selections is recorded on 2 CDs. On the CDs, each Selection is on a separate track.

The Access to Qur'anic Arabic course should be a useful starting point for a more detailed study of the Qur'an and of Arabic in general. It is hoped that this course will encourage us to a greater understanding of the Qur'an, the better to appreciate it, follow it, and be inspired by it throughout our lives.
The Qur’an is the most widely read but least understood Book. Let us make it the most widely understood and followed Book.
