This will include a teaching of Arab language and literature. The syllabus has been framed by experts in the field. This course has been started to link the students of modern education with the knowledge of the Quran and Hadith. It is a three-year course consisting of 6 semesters. The course contents include Quranic interpretation, Hadith and Arabic literature.
