السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

I did read up a few kitabs on Arabic Nahwa, though I am looking for kitabs in Arabic to help me first improve my Arabic then InshaAllah my Nahwa, could mufti refer to what kitabs to read and use?

جزاك الله خيرا فأحسن الجزاء في الدارين


It is praiseworthy that you are so earnestly desiring to learn the language of the Qur’an. If you are interested in reading Arabic books to practice what you have learnt, “Qasas al-Nabiyeen” by Shaykh Abul Hasan Ali al-Nadwi is a good place to start. It is a series of books about the lives of prophets with each subsequent volume being more challenging than the previous one, so the level of difficulty progressively increases. It is originally without diacritics (iʿrab) giving students a chance to put into practice their knowledge of Arabic grammar when reading and comprehending the text, but also has versions with diacritics (iʿrab) with which you can compare to confirm your accuracy and correct your mistakes. There are a number of other books that you can read such as, Ten Lessons of Arabic based on Das Sabaq of Mawlana Abdul Salam Kidwai Nadwi, Madina book series, Arabic tutor to mention a few. May Allah put barakah in your efforts, and accept them with a beautiful acceptance. Ameen.
