Hey guys! Any tips for a good course to learn introductory Arabic? I can read it like a toddler, but I’m slow and I have no idea what I’m reading. I know there’s Rosetta Stone, Duolingo, Arab Academy, etc. Any recommendations?

I’m a fluent Arabic speaker so I can’t say. I just wanted to make a suggestion if you’re learning Arabic to understand Quran/Hadith better (for Islamic knowledge) check out Suhaib Webb’s Swiss academy. They offer basic Arabic

Thank you! :) I’ll check it out. And yes, predominantly hoping to be able to understand the Quran better and actually know what I’m saying during prayers.

Do you have any mosques near you? Almost all mosques have courses to teach you how to recite the Quran. I’m also aware that there are online tutors, some of my cousins go this route. I don’t recommend trying to learn recitation from videos because feedback from a learned teacher is necessary. Learning how to recite fluently should be fairly quick and very rewarding inshAllah, given you practise. If you’re interested in learning Arabic to help understand the meaning of Quran recitation, I’ve read good reviews about “Arabic with Husna” on BayyinahTv.com and I started this recently. Allah says in the Quran that he has surely made it easy for us to learn for his remembrance. Good luck!

Thanks so much! My mosque usually has classes, but they’re all on pause because of Covid. I’ve heard good things about Bayyinah too. I’ll definitely check it out. Appreciate the recommendations and encouragement!

Thanks! Might be a bit out of my price range, but it honestly looks great and I’m usually a fan of structured learning

There is an app called Quranic to learn by learning the quran I love it !

Ahem - any ladies have tips and tricks for hair removal practices I came from a culture of waxing but that requires hair to fully grow + my hair grows pretty quickly so waiting for full growth for waxing is hard to work around (for legs, underarms, etc.). I tried shaving but my hair began showing in 1-2 days. In general though, not something my family struggles with in general, but I’m just hairier? I know this is a weird question, but looking for any tips and tricks!
