Exploring a Multifaceted Syllabus Design for Teaching Short Surahs of Qur'an to Novice-Non-Arabic-Speaking Muslims
Saleh, Amira A.; Elyas, Tariq
Advances in Language and Literary Studies, v6 n2 p65-77 Apr 2015
The paper's aim is to propose a design for a syllabus for the new Muslims who have recently converted to Islam. The syllabus is multifaceted, addressing the basic linguistic, stylistic, and lexical features of 3 Surahs (chapters) in the holy book in addition to highlighting the most basic information a new Muslim has to know about the sacred book. These features have been presented and graded according to the needs of the students (new Muslims). Three Surahs (Al Fatihah), (Al Ikhlas), and (Al Nasr) will be presented in their translated and transliterated forms in relation to their original Arabic texts, so as to understand these Arabic words when students listen or try to practice them in their daily five prayers. In addition, a practicum session will be given to students in which they apply what they have learned through the first Surah (Al Fatihah). The practicum session includes the analysis of this Surah using the main seven features presented in the theoretical section. Versions of pre- and post-questionnaires will be administered with the syllabus to the students to test how far they have benefited from this course.
