Assalamualaikum. I know the entire Arabic alphabet, the 4 different shapes of letters. I have begun grammar but it is difficult. Remembering vocabulary is also difficult. But I have seen many people who within 2 weeks, they begin reading the Quran even though they may be zero in grammar and dictionary.

I have tried to read the Quran but I see nothing but a bunch of letters and I don't have the slightest idea where a word begins and where it ends. Also I don't know when two or more words are united. Can you give me a hint how to distinguish those things when I read the Quran?

  • Arabic generally has spaces between words, same as English. Can you post an example of what you're having trouble with? We also don't generally do language-learning questions here—you'll get better answers on Language Learning.SE—but if you make it a question about orthography you might get results. – Draconis Apr 24 at 23:10
