Suurah al-Hujuraat with Lexical & Grammatical Notes – Dr. V. AbdurRahim

‘Surah al-Hujuraat – With Lexical & Grammatical Notes’ is an advanced Qur’anic Arabic Course prepared for the graduates of the Madinah Arabic Course, or students who have attained proficiency in Arabic equivalent to it.

Research and experience in the field of language teaching point to the importance of using living texts of a language to teach its grammar and other linguistic elements.  This  book is an attempt to make use of Qur’anic Texts for this purpose. It contains Surat al-Hujurat which is followed by lexical and grammatical notes and copious exercises in the fields of comprehension and language skills.

Surah al Hujuraat with lexical and grammatical notes – Part 1

Publisher’s Note

All praise be to Allah, and peace and blessings of Allah be upon His last Messenger, Muhammad, his Household and his Companions.

We have great pleasure in presenting to our readers all over the world this latest work of the great Arabic scholar, Dr V. Abdur Rahim, titled Surat al-Hujurat With Lexical & Grammatical Notes. This and his other books based on annotated Qur’anic and hadith texts reflect the author’s conviction that the best way to teach Arabic grammar is to expose the students to living texts of the language. He likens this methodology of teaching the language to a conducted tour of an ancient historical site.

We earnestly hope that students of Arabic who have already completed the author’s Madinah Arabic Programme will immensely benefit from this book.


All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the universe, and peace and blessings of Allah be upon the last of His Messengers, our Prophet Muhammad, his Household and his Companions.

After my book, Selections From the Glorious Qur’an was well received by the students of Arabic, I was enouraged to write another book following the same pattern. The result is this work in which I have chosen to present Surat al-Hujurat with lexical and grammatical notes.

Like its predecessor, this book is also meant for those who have completed the Madinah Arabic Programme [1] , or have attained proficiency in Arabic equivalent to it.

As my aim in such works is to bring the reader closer to the Glorious Qur 5 an, and to teach him as many Qur’anic words and grammatical patterns as possible, I have given in this book also copious Quranic quotations to illustrate grammatical rules.

[1] i.e. the three parts of Durus al-Lughah al- ‘Arabiyyah by Dr V. Abdur Rahim.

In order to benefit from these materials to the utmost, the reader is advised to read the a/at in full and in their context using a good translation of the Qur’an like A Word For Word Meaning of die Quran by Dr M. Mohar Ali rahimahullah which has copious lexical and grammatical notes.

In conclusion, I thank Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala for helping me to write this book, and sincerely pray for His help to serve the language of His Glorious Book better.

Madinah, V. Abdur Rahim
