In the name of Allah, Most Beneficent, Most Merciful

All praise be to Allah, and may peace and blessings of Allah be upon

his Prophet, Muhammad. Allah says very explicitly in His Book, "

(This is) a Book (the Qur'an) which We have sent down to you, full of

blessings that they may ponder over its verses, and that men of

understanding may remember [38:29]." If we don't understand the

Book, how can we ponder on its verses!

Ahadith also emphasize the learning of the Qur’an. The Prophet of

Allah, Muhammad, peace be upon him, said, "The best among you are

those who have learnt the Qur'an and teach it (to others)" [Bukhari].

This booklet is prepared to provide some help in fulfilling the above- mentioned objectives. Please keep the following points in mind while

77800) of the Holy Qur'an.

2. Most common meanings: For each word, only the most common

meanings are given. Some words may have other meanings too,

depending upon their context. However, the number of such words

is very small.

3. More than one meanings: When more than one distinctly

different meanings of a word are given in this booklet, a semicolon

is placed between the two meanings. For similar meanings, a

spring ) and (above, up ).

pages occur very frequently. Some of them occur in combination

verb (in its various forms) has occurred in the Holy Qur'an.

7. Arrangement of word lists: Words given on pages 1 through 14

are arranged according to the topic. There are a few words given

in this booklet which have occurred very frequently in the Qur’an

but could not be placed under any of the topics. Such words are

placed at the end of any of the word lists where space was


8. Arrangement of verbs: Verbs given on pages 15 through 33 are

arranged according to their types. This is done to facilitate the

learning of different types of verbs.

), it indicates that

any vowel sign can come on it depending upon the context in

imperfect tense, the imperative, the active participle and the

verbal noun are provided. It is assumed that based on this

selected verbs. All the verbal forms of such verbs are provided in

detail in a separate booklet, "A Few Selected Verbs Used in the

Holy Qur'an."

14. Silat-ul-fa’l: Just like in any language, some verbs and nouns of

action are always followed by a preposition. For example,

believe in: . However, in some cases, a change in

preposition may change the meanings too. for example, get; get in;

get at; get by, get off, get on, etc. A list of some important verbs

along with changing prepositions is provided on page no. 34.

15.Dual and Feminine forms: The word forms related to dual

number and feminine gender are used sparingly in the Holy Qur'an.

Therefore, these forms may be given less emphasis in the

beginning stages.

this booklet. Most important one among these is the book (

Arabic Language institute of King Saud University by Dr.

English meanings of the words, “Vocabulary of the Holy Qur’an,” by

Dr. Abdullah Abbas Nadwi is extensively used.
