Dictation Level I
Try to complete prior to starting 1B
Dictation involves an instructor reading a sentence in Arabic with students writing down the Arabic as they hear it. These are critical for students to improve their reading and writing of Arabic words. They are also great for giving insight into famous sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (some students even memorize them)!
For each dictation listed, follow these 5 steps:
Play the clip in the link.
While listening to the video, write down the words of the hadith in Arabic in your Fawakih notebook.
Try your best to spell each word correctly. Attempt to include vowel markings.
When complete, do your best to enter the Arabic into the box below the clip.
You will be redirected to the explanation of the dictation after completing and will be given the opportunity to check your writing of the hadith.
