Frequently Asked Questions

Q: “I do not know how to read Arabic. Can ArabBible help me?”

ArabBible assumes you can at least read words in the Arabic script, even if you don't know too much of what you are reading. We had to draw the line somewhere, and the project would have been too overwhelming to start at the raw beginner's level. Actually, the alphabet can be mastered within several weeks. We suggest using a good text such as the University of Michigan's Elementary Modern Standard Arabic Part I (ISBN #0521272955) to start off. But don't let this scare you. ArabBible can even be used concurrently with beginning studies, as long as you can read words successfully. You do not need years of experience to use ArabBible; it was made to help you learn!
