    Default Arabic: What you need for the lessons

    as-Salaamu 'alaikum,

    In order to participate in these lessons, you will need an Arabic keyboard, which you can buy from:

    al-Muntada al-Islami
    7 Bridges Place,Parsons Green,
    London, SW6 4HW, England.
    Nearest Tube: Parsons Green (District Line)

    Alternatively, you can visit the following URL and buy your keyboard online:
    http://www.fingertipsoft.com/kbd/btc.html#Arabic

    In addition to that, you will need to 'Arabize' your computer to be able to write and read Arabic.

    To do that, if you are using either Microsoft Windows XP Professional, or
    Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, take the following steps.

    1) Click on the start and go to Settings - Control Panel
    2) Open the Regional and Language Options applet
    3) On the Languages Tab check the "Install the file for complex script and right to left languages" checkbox to select it
    4) Click OK
    5) Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD when prompted and allow installation to complete
    6) Restart the computer when prompted to do so

    Further other versions of MS Windows, refer to the following article:
    Arabicizing Windows Applications to Read and Write Arabic
    http://www.uga.edu/islam/arabic_windows.html

    Any problems, feel free to post!

    was-salamu 'alaikum

    Assalaamu alaikum,

    If you dont have an arabic keyboard, you can still use your normal keyboard - you just have to know which keys represent which vowel (and it takes absolutely ages to type!)

    For the meanwhile, for those who dont have an Arabic keyboard...

    There are other useful shortcuts, just fiddle around with the keys, and the shift button...

    Vowels:

    Shift + Q

    Shift + W

    Shift + E

    Shift + R

    Shift + A

    Shift + S

    Shift + X

    I dont know how to make them bigger on this forum - maybe someone can help insha'Allaah.

    Obv, better to get a keyboard.

    i'm blind type writer... so when i try to memorize the position of each arabic letter i don't find much trouble without having arabic keyboard.

    Untill you memorize the position of the keyboard / get an arabic keyboar.... turn on "on screen keyboard" all the time.... it will help u much, in shaa Allah..

    Default Assalamu Alaykom wa RahmatuLLAHI wa Barakatuhu

    :?: I have Windows XP and I have the keys marked for Arabic. You are right it takes a while to type in Arabic. I am thinking to get an Arabic keyboard (I live in the US), but is there any way that I can plug my english and Arabic keyboards at the same time? My husband is studying in the University and we need the english for other things.

    Jazak Allahu Khayran

    YOU DONT NEED AN ARABIC KEYBOARD OR STICKERS. to do it for free



    Install the language as described bfore and install the NEW KEYBOARD LAyout... i dont know exactly how i did it, Regional Settings, Languages, DETAILS Button....



    Add Keyboard, Input Language, Arabic (egypt, watever)... Keyboard Layout, Arabic(101)...click key settings to be able to switch back and forth.. alternatively.. you can use a new toolbar that will show up on the bottom right hand corner.



    Now the onscreen keyboard, you need to change the font displayed to arabic, simplified arabic, watever..



    then after restarting like 3 times, you now have:



    1. Onscreen Keyboard with Arabic Font (doesnt show arabic until you swith layout and move your mouse over it)



    2. a Toolbar on the Windows taskbar that lets you switch between the languages.



    3. The need to switch back and forth and some classes online so that this will be useful..



    inshaAllah



    but after that open up On-screen keyboard and u can switch between arabic and english keyboard... here is me typing Kaschif using the keyboard of english but switching layout.. so the letter K a S C H******* i f are ******* *******and it together.. of course it writes backwards to.. but the layout is infront of you in the onscreen keyboard..





    inshaAllah, ﷲ





    and wa Allah o Alim
