An excellent course run by an amazing teacher. Mawlana Abbas is a respected scholar who specialises in Arabic Rhetoric (Balagha), he has written his own book in Balagha in Arabic as well as English. It is truly a privilege to be able to study closely with someone who has so much expertise in this subject with the sole intention to get closer to the Quran and attain the pleasure of Allah the almighty. Throughout these classes I have seen much structure in the lessons, and work in bringing relevant examples from the Quran to bring the theory to life. I would recommend Mawlana Abbas to anyone seeking to further their studies in Balagha or even Arabic in general.

I do hope that the structures surrounding the classes such as the website and resources continue to improve to make accessing and studying the content easier in the future rather than making things harder, to give right to this Mubarak content and efforts of our beloved teacher may Allah preserve him.

I have only had 6 lessons and have learnt a lot within these lessons. From not being able to speak a word of conversational Arabic to near enough being able to have a full conversation with someone. I have not just learned how to speak Arabic but also learnt a bit of Arabic grammar. Learning conversational Arabic has not just helped me speak Arabic but has also helped me improve my Quran and Hadeeth translation. The Zoom lessons are very easily accessible, the website is very easy to use and the lessons are very affordable.
