Arabic 301: Introduction to Rhetoric (Balaagha) 

Welcome to Arabic 301: Introduction to Balagha البلاغة

Course Description:

In this course, students will study three major sciences within the science of Balaagha:

1. Ilm al-Ma’aani: deals with meanings contained within words and how they affect sentence styles and structures.

2. Ilm al-Bayaan: deals with specific principles that aid in understanding the different intents and purposes of sentences.

3. Ilm al-Badee’: deals with the beautification of speech in both wording and meaning.

By Allah’s permission, students at the end of the course will:

-Understand Balaagha along with its sciences
-Learn how these sciences are applied within the Quran, Hadith, and poetry
-Be able to apply said rules in their speech and writing
-Truly understand the beauty of the Quran and why every Aayah آية (verse) is an Aayah آية (sign)!
-Marvel over the Quran in and out of Salah and truly reflect over Allah’s Speech

*There will also be assignments throughout the course to test students’ understanding of material + 2 midterms and a final.*

This is an introductory course so no previous knowledge about this subject is required. We teach this science from the ground up. If you understand basic Arabic (Madina Book 1 or its equivalent taught by us), you will be able to follow along in shaa Allah.
