LESSON 1- الدَّرْسُ الأوَّلُ
هـٰذا - '.....This'
Please read the sentences below. After completing the sentences we shall go over the rules for this lesson.
|هـٰذا بَابٌ||هـٰذا بَيْتٌ|
This is a book
This is a mosque
|This is a door||This is a house|
Arabic has no word which is equal to the English word "is" which is referred to as a copula in grammar. We can see this rule demonstrated above where we see the words for هـٰذا and the noun/object مَسْجِد being referred to without any copula. i.e. هـٰذا مَسْجِدٌ If read literally this sentence would read "This Mosque", however, the word "is" can be implied in this sentence so that it reads "This is a Mosque".
