The Arabic Alphabet – Names of the Letters (Video)

Alhamdulillah I have finally finished my very first video 🙂 – am very excited! I was actually hoping to have this out last year (as can be seen by my earlier post), but time just slipped away from me *embarrassed*… but today am redeeming myself 🙂

As you have probably noticed, the majority of my posts have some form of Arabic in them. Arabic forms the foundation of Islamic teaching & learning – the Quran was revealed in Arabic, Hadith are recorded in Arabic. The importance of this wonderful & rich language can not be overstated.

Unfortunately Arabic is not my first language, so I have always wanted to have a reference or a quick guide on the Arabic Alphabet (especially on how to pronounce the letters correctly). So a little while back I got together with my friend(s) at Roots & Sprouts and we have filmed a set of quick videos that cover the basics of the Arabic Alphabet. The first in this series is the (1) Names of the Letters,

You can also view the video on YouTube or Vimeo

I hope everyone finds this helpful – it is not just intended for children, but all Non (native) Arabic speakers – young and old.

I love to get your feedback so please do let me know what you think.
