There’s a most interesting segment of FQ’s class. And that is learning a sentence or two (in Arabic) from the book from each lesson. Repeating it over and over again does help in getting you over the shyness or hesitation you feel with Arabic. Saying it out loud also has a direct effect on your heart. You actually start feeling it. Somehow, it’s fun too. :P
كل من احب الله انس به ومن احب غير الله عذب به
[Rough translation:] Whoever will love Allah, will feel affability (closeness) through it. And whoever will love (someone) other than Allah, will feel torture through it.
Transliteration: kullu man ahabba-llaha anisa bihi wa man ahabba ghaira-llahi ‘uzziba bihi
