Over the years, QuranReading.com has established itself as a respected brand among parents who wish to teach their children about Quran. With ever increasing number of customers all over the globe, QuranReading.com takes special measures to ensure that the Quran learning process is effective so that after every lesson the student of our online Quran Tutoring classes leaves with an increased and better knowledge of Quran. Some major reasons why you should choose us include:
Qibla (Paid Subscription) - Unlike Bayyinah, Qibla is an actual online school where you attend live online courses every week in whatever subject you are taking (they have a lot). And when you sign up for a course, the live sessions are recorded and stored on the site, so you can access them if you miss a class. However, since Qibla offers a variety of courses, such as Arabic, tafsir, history, tajweed, and law, they will tend to support certain methodologies and beliefs over others, like Sufism. Although a lot of their content is religiously neutral, I would stay away from the courses dealing with things like tasawwuf, unless it fits in with your beliefs. But the Arabic and Qur'an courses are fantastic, and really help a beginner get used to all the grammar rules.
I was just wondering whether it is valuable to learn Arabic as a white female from The Unites States. I really enjoy learning foreign languages and about about different cultures. I have been interested in Arabic for quite some time and even took measures to learn some Arabic when I was in high school, but was quickly dissuaded. I mean no offense, but given cultural stereotypes about Arab views toward women, would it be a valuable time investment to learn Arabic if I wanted to make a career out of my passion for foreign languages/cultures? I appreciate any feedback!
Maybe I would also add: Devote time to learning Arabic in a structured way. Don’t think you will just “pick it up” only by social contact. There’s a variety of learning methods with different approaches – group/individual lessons, tutor, GPA, TPR, etc. Social contact is essential, but in order to practice what you’ve learnt and pick up new vocab/expressions to ask about in your class. Don’t listen to well meaning locals (sometimes your local boss) who tell you can pick up the language just by going to the market, talking to colleagues, etc.
Thanks so much for the great post. A quick question: I totally get what you're saying about learning a dialect first, and also about avoiding transliterated books, but sometimes that can be a bit of a hard thing to do. I checked out your post on Levantine Arabic (I am learning Palestinian myself) and the books you cited were for those already know MSA. Are there any books you could recommend that teach Palestinian or Lebanese dialects that are not all transliterated? Any pointers would be much appreciated.
In an attempt to spread Islam and the message of Allah i.e. the holy Quran, we came up with the idea of an online Quran Academy in 2008 with the purpose of providing Islamic scholars on a single click. Alhamdulillah, we have been receiving an overwhelming response and are proud to have taught Islam and the holy Quran to thousands of Muslims as well as non-Muslims. Our Academy strives to maintain its high standards of online tutoring and to exceed our student’s expectations in terms of learning Quran and Islam online.
Wouldn’t it be great to have a conversational partner to practice those new phrases you just learned? We think so, too. That’s why we created an innovative computer programme you can have an intelligent conversation with. The Mondly Conversational Chatbot asks you questions in a real Arabic voice and understands what you are saying. Next thing you know, you are practicing your Arabic while meeting a native on a train to Riyadh, booking a hotel in Dubai or ordering food in an Arabic restaurant. Ready to study Arabic now?

Our native Arabic speaking teachers who have Ijazas (License) from leading Islamic Institutions to teach the Quran will ensure that you learn the Quran with proper Tajweed from day one.
Also, with regards to dialects. If you want to learn Egyptian Arabic, maybe you can gather a decent variety of resources, but, I mean, Arabic resources suck in general without trying to find a variety of resources for a specific dialect. My husband speaks Arabic, but there are zero resources available in his dialect. I’ve just studied MSA and then listened and observed the differences and how to adapt.

the fact is we have to learn the MSA as it the language of teaching and learning , reading and writing, and the language we use everyday in our life, we cannot write it. however some people use it in the social media, it is very frustrating and can hardly understand what they mean. in my opinion you should learn MSA if you really want to learn the Arabic language, as MSA unites the Arab world together. If they can’t understand when they communicate in their dialect, then they use MSA instead. Each of the Arab counties use different terms and expressions which it is hard to understand. Hence, learn and speak the MSA and if they don’t understand you it means they are illiterate, and there are not much of them. and those who laugh about hearing you talking in MSA, that’s because they are not used to hear it more often, it is mostly used in formal situations.
Learn Quran Academy was established in 2006 with the aim of teaching the Holy Quran from Arabic alphabets to reading Quran with Tajweed in U.K and all over the word. Our key aim in mind is to prepare children who are unable to read Quran with Tafseer and Tajweed for adults also who can read but not aware of Tajweed rules. We are specialized in teaching Quran with Tajweed which is the true pronunciation of the Quran and the recommended way of reading Quran.
