Looking for a fun and easy way to use your iPhone to teach your child how to write and pronounce Arabic letters? Try the free Hijaiya app!
What we love
Every letter of the alphabet is complete with audio for correct pronunciation, and engaging illustrations. There are 2 sections to play: Learn and Write.
- Learn: Click on the letter to hear it’s name, as well as its sound with the three haraqat (fatha, kasra, dhamma).
- Write: Trace the letter with your finger, and at the bottom you can click to hear the name.
What we’d love to see
English transliteration of the letters to help reinforce the sounds, and more game play.
Learning the Arabic alphabet is a basic foundation for reading the Quran. This app is for all ages, including adults just learning the Arabic alphabet, but best aimed at preschoolers and elementary aged children, while capturing interest and play.
