Level 2: Introduction to Classical Arabic Literature

This course introduces students to classical Arabic literature and will include a linguistic analysis of Sura Yusuf (Joseph) from the Qur’an,  going through the Forty Hadith of Al-Nawawi, and finally exploring excerpts from the works of great scholars including Al-Ghazali, Ibn Rushd and others. The aim of the course is to give students the confidence to pursue further reading of primary texts after going through a substantial amount of material in a guided setting. By the end of this programme students would have had the opportunity to apply all their learning from Level 1 by reading primary classical Arabic texts, some of which date back more than fourteen centuries.
