Welcome to Kulliyyah of Arabic Language portal.
Kulliyyah of Arabic Language (KBA) UniSHAMS was founded in line with the establishment of Islamic Institute of Kedah Darul Aman (INSANIAH) in 1996. At that time, INSANIAH only offered diploma programmes and a 3 + 1 Bachelor of Arabic Language degree programme which was a twinning program with Al-Azhar University of Egypt until 2007. However, starting 2004, this kulliyyah offers the Bachelor of Arabic Language with Honors (ISMBA) program which has been fully accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).
Alhamdulillah, with the permission of Allah SAW, now Kulliyyah of Arabic Language is moving forward when MQA has agreed and allowed this Kulliyyah to run two additional study programs at the postgraduate level, namely a Master's Degree and a Doctor of Philosophy Degree (PhD) in Arabic with MQA's approval: PA 9803 dated August 24, 2009, and divided into No. Reference PA 9861 (Bachelor of Arabic) and PA 9862 (Doctor of Philosophy in Arabic Language).
Therefore, with these three study programs on offer, we would like to invite you to explore the academic programs in the coming academic session. KBA has lined up lecturers from Arab countries such as Egypt and Sudan with extensive experience in providing the best quality teaching and learning, in addition supervising the thesis of Master’s Degree and Doctoral Degree programmes.
At the postgraduate level, KBA has three (3) departments, namely the Lughawiyyat Department (Linguistics), the Balaghah & Adab Department (Literature) and the Ta'lim Department (Education).
It is good to say that learning Arabic is an effort to master the language and understand the language of the Qur'an, the Prophetic’s Tradition and inttelectual legacy from our previous scholars. Meanwhile, learning a language and experience it from native speakers is a very wise choice, because students will make every effort to ensure that what they want to convey is finally understood, then immediately correct mistakes after being instructed by native speakers themselves.
You can continue to browse this page to learn more about kulliyyah, academic staff and opportunities we offer in academic, research, publications, consultancy, research grant as graduated research assistant (GRA) and community services. I hope this website can help all interested parties to obtain clear and accurate information.
