Reading Arabic alphabets is the process of identifying the symbols, i.e., letters, and pronouncing them correctly.

    The five (5) goals of the first two units for the beginners are:

  • Reading and pronouncing the letters and words correctly.
  • Identifying the alphabets in their different forms within the text.
  • Identifying the alphabets from how they sound.
  • Practicing letters pronunciation from the right place to extract the right sound,
  • Knowing the letters’ movements (Dhamma, Fat’ha, Kasra), then knowing the silence movement (Sokoon), the stressing movement (Shadda) and Tanween.

In Mishkah Rule, the assembly procedure in education has been adopted which consists of the pronunciation procedure, the sounding procedure and the splitting procedure. The examples of all these procedures are extracted from Qur’an text.

    In order to assist the student to build and assemble words and sentences, Mishkah Rule gradually guides him/her to understand the following relations:

  • A letter, then a group of letters to construct a word.
  • A word, then a group of words to construct a sentence.
  • A sentence, then a group of sentences to construct a paragraph.
  • A paragraph, then a group of paragraphs to construct a text.

Alongside these relations, Mishkah Rule emphasizes writing as an important tool for conversation and gaining knowledge because writing is an implementation and recording of what is orally stated.
