    Jazaaka Allaahu khayran for your comment and your suggestion brother. I have kind of been slow in updating the blog lately but inshaa’Allaah I will try my best to find time to make it a better resource. You made a great suggestion about adding software to aid in learning Arabic. I never thought about that but inshaa’Allaah I will try to find some good free ones for this purpose.
