Note on Book1 Completion

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الحمد لله رب العالمين والصلاة والسلام على نبينا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين ، وبعد

By the grace and mercy of Allah azzawajal we were able to complete Madeenah Book 1 lessons. We thank Allah subhaanahu wa ta’aala first and foremost and then we thank our teacher Abu Ishaq Nadeem Ahsan Shah for his time, dedication and commitment. We likewise thank all our brothers and sisters who regularly attended the classes and all brothers and sisters working in background to make this possible. May Allah azzawajal aid all of us and grant us success in this noble endeavor.

I would sincerely like to apologize to all my brothers and sisters with any shortcomings on our part in the management of these lessons, the likes of

- Not starting on time

- Cancelling at short notice

- Delay in uploading audios on website

- Quality of online web platform or internet connectivity issues (voice or video)

- Initiating taking of tests, exams but unable to follow it through…

Even after all of this we found many dedicated brothers and sisters who were keen to attend and follow the classes and this is truly a ni’mah from Allah azzawajal. Insha allah we will take into consideration these learning points and try our best to improve going forward.

I genuinely enjoyed managing these classes as with almost every lesson you attend, you can feel a difference in your understanding of the Quraan and the recitation being done in the daily prayers – and this is one of the most amazing aspects of learning this beautiful language. Walillaahil hamd we now have a total of 68 lessons* covering the full Book 1 (both Video and audio) on our website

Some unique feature of this Programme

1. Class conducted by a Madeenah University graduate (1999) and an indivual holding on to Salafi Aqeedah and Manhaj

2. Live interaction with students and opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback

3. Use of drawings and markers to explain complex concepts and to simplify them

4. Key grammatical points highlighted clearly along with examples of its usage

5. Facility for students to ask any questions to the teacher after the class

Our next steps

1. We plan to cover 4 revision classes to go through key concepts of Book 1 (details to follow)

2. This will be followed by an Exam with markings and corrections by the teacher

3. We then, by the permission of Allah azzawajal will embark on Madeenah Book 2.
