LESSON 2 – الدَّرْسُ الثَّانِي

That is.... - ذَلِكَ...


  • In-Shā'-Allâh (God willing), we will continue practising the demonstrative pronoun /dhālika/ which refers to objects that are further away. We remind you that the Arabic grammar doesn't call it demonstrative pronoun, it rather call it Arabic demonstrative nouns or Arabic demonstrative articles.

Please click on the words to hear speech, i.e. how the words should be pronounced.
