Learning the Language of the Quran with Key By: Dr. Muhammad Abdul Haq Ansari.
This book is designed to provide the student with sufficient skill for understanding the verses of the Qur’an and the Hadith. It contains thirty six lessons and nine review exercises to teach the language of the Qur’an. Usually each lesson deals with more than one grammatical point.
To explain the grammar, enough examples have been given in the text, and to master the grammatical rules and cultivate the skill to correctly read unvowelled Arabic text sufficient exercises have been provided. Most of the exercises contain sentences drawn from common language; a particular section, however, comprises only the verses of the Qur’an and the Hadith.

Letters from the War Zone
American soldiers serve willingly. They risk their lives so the rest of us can be safe. The one small thing they ask, though, is that they not be sent into harm’s way unless it is absolutely necessary. But after being lied to about weapons of mass destruction and about the connection between al Qaeda and Iraq; after being forced by stop-loss orders to extend their deployment; after being undertrained, underequipped, and overworked long after George Bush declared Iraq “Mission Accomplished,” these soldiers have something to say.
