Hello, dearest people!
I’m going to share with you on how YOU can use (or spot 😇) the plurals in Arabic. It’s something that I have found very useful throughout my journey of learning and understanding Arabic and I would like you guys to be able to benefit from this as how I had found it a blessing to be able to figure out how the rules actually work. Indeed, learning Arabic is actually very easy!!
وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا الْقُرْآنَ لِلذِّكْرِ
And indeed, We have made the Quran easy to understand and remember
(Surah Al-Qamar; 17)
(Yes I’m finally sweeping all the clouds of dust I have left last time 🌪. I’m still working on my planning for my posts and videos. Meanwhile, please bear with me, my faithful audiences 👩🏻💻)
Below will be the breakdown of this (easy!) topic, so let’s get started!
- Genders in the Arabic language
- Identifying the genders
- Changing the words to plural form (and examples!!)
Genders in the Arabic language
Just like in a lot of other languages (e.g. German), Arabic also has its genders allocated to objects, people, any living creatures and basically all the Arabic nouns. It has only two genders which are;
- Masculine; and
Identifying the genders
I will use 6 words in this post for you to see how we can make use of the plurals, which are in the picture below;
There are easy ways that you can identify the genders in Arabic. This picture is above is basically all referring to the masculine gender.
In order for you to identify the feminine is to take notice that there will be an addition of the letter ة, which I will demonstrate in the picture below.
Now that you can spot the difference between the gender in the words, the following will be on changing all the singular form above to plural!
Singular ➡️ Plural (with examples)
The gender plays a role (and makes a huge difference) in the plural form because;
- In the masculine form, you will either add;
- ون; or
at the back of the word.
2. In the feminine form, you will need to;
- remove the ة and add ات at the back of the word
I would say that’s a wrap for this post on how you can convert the words into plural form. Anticipate for my next post on حَرْف (harf) aka sentence connector in two weeks inshaAllah 😉.
