I was always keen to study urdu which i did not learn in my childhood. So i bought set of 5 books – which start from individual hurf(letters) and gradually increase the complexity.
The first book is called “Hamari Kitab” – Book Zero Level. It starts with Urdu letters with pictures and moves on to simple words and then sentences. This book was originally written only in Urdu. I have added the English transliteration, for Muslim brethren who are new to Urdu.
I have added the English transliteration in “Hamari Kitaab – Book Zero” in 2 ways.
Sticky Note: next to each word there is a yellow icon of a dialogue bubble. Hover or click on it to see the English transliteration. This I started off with basic Adobe Reader’s sticky note tool to add English transliteration. But found that this was not the most efficient way to do it.
2. Typewriter tool: Later I found an amazing PDF editor called “Foxit Reader” which allows you to write directly on the PDF using the typewriter tool. ( I recommend Foxit while reading this book. But Adobe reader should also be fine)
I have uploaded both the versions of the book -
Urdu only and Urdu+English.

Hope this will be useful to you. Inshallah will upload the next books soon.
Remember me in your duas.
