Fawakih Winter Program

Dec 19-31

Find below a message from the Fawakih team about an amazing winter opportunity!

“Join us for Fawakih’s 3rd Annual Winter Program, “The Language of Prayer” from 12/19 to 12/31! Early Registration ends 10/31!

Whether you are a beginner to Arabic or have been studying the language for years, our Winter Program is a unique opportunity to take your studies to the next level in just 2 weeks!

Students will cover the equivalent of one semester in Fawakih’s year-long Quranic Arabic program (focused on grammar, morphology and reading) in just 2 weeks. Arabic classes are linked to classes on prayer (Tafsir of Surat al-Fatiha, du’as of payer, the virtues of various supererogatory prayers, etc.), providing students with a more meaningful study of the language. In addition, special evening lectures and our first Places of Prayer Festival will insha’Allah make the program a unique cultural and community experience you won’t forget!

For more information about the program, visit or email We hope you’ll join us this December!

Warm regards,
Fawakih Team”
