Learn URDU, the easy way !

Assalamalekum ORB,

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 –

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

    Assalamalekum ORB,

    Fawaz bhai, I always wanted to learn urdu by myself, this initiative from you is really good, Allah bless you for this good deed. But I want to learn myself Urdu, so it will be good if your document has English also summary side by side.



  3. Md Imteyaz Khan says:

    Please send the remaining book links. thank you.

    الحمد لله وصلاة وسلام على رسول الله. أما بعد

    AlSalaamu ‘alaikum br. Fawaz, may Allah ta’ala bless you for taking this initiative. Alhamdulillah, I know Urdu nevertheless I’m still a student. I believe these books along with their transliteration will be of great benefit for the beginners. I’ve recommended these books to some brother I know who’re very eager to learn Urdu. I hope they’re going to find them useful.

    May Allah ta’ala forgive you and us and guide us all to the straight path. ameen


    • Wlkmaslm Br.Manaarah,

      Alhamdulillah I have added a part of these books. But I would like to add the whole 5 books. I might need some help in transliteration. If any of the brothers are interested in helping me transliterate. Inshallah it will be very beneficial.


      • Brother Fawaz, just to confirm, did you add transliteration to the first book of the series entitled “Hamari Kitab”? I downloaded it and didn’t find the transliteration along with the original Urdu text of the book.

        Alhamdulillah, let me know if you know any help with the transliteration. I’ll be more than happy to help you if I can, inshallah.

        Wa feeka baarakallah.

      • Jameela Junaid says:

    mashaALLAH brother great work i want to learn urdu.

    • Aslkm Brother Sameer,

      Jazakallah for the kind words.
      I think you are from Hyderabad, You could get basic urdu books like these or buy it from a islamic book store. Any imam or muazzin in your nearest mosque could teach you. Urdu is very easy, if you know arabic letters and have read the Quran. You just need to practice. Practising under an imam or a muazzin helps you learn faster.

      Hope that helps
      Remember in Duas.

        Allah hafiz

      • Wlkmaslm Sis Fathima,

        Jazakallah for the kind words. I am glad to hear that you learnt Urdu on your own. Even I could not learn it in my childhood because of my English education.

        For understanding Quran, Arabic is the best language, as Allah has chosen this language for Quran. If you know Urdu, learning Arabic (to speak/understand) is not very tough. Apart from Quran there are some wonderful urdu books by the Indo-Pak authors which could help you understand Islam better. As muslims we need to learn Arabic and Urdu for the purpose of Aakhirah.

        My friend Mufti Farman Ansari is a Islamic Scholar. He is doing his research jointly with Dr.Mushtaq Ahmed (Dean of Shifa Hospital, Bangalore). They are coming up with a publication that outlines the Islamic Ethics for Medical Practitioners. If you see the medical world today, it is full of corruptions – hidden commissions, unnecessary medical tests, kick-backs from pharmacy companies. This has made medicines and treatment very costly and unaffordable to common man. They hope that this publication will help improve the medical field in Moral aspect and give Islamic guidelines to Muslim Doctors.

        Mufti Farman knows Urdu and Arabic very well but his English is not so good. If you are willing to do the translation part for this publication I can connect you with him.


      • Ahamadhi Fathima says:

        Assalamu Alaikum Bhaiya.

        Thanks a lot for your valuable reply. Am glad to do the translation part. It would be great to know the procedure for translation before going ahead. So that I can make sure whether it is possible by me as I have just started learning Urdu and I could only read Arabic. Please help with it.

        You mentioned that some Urdu books may also help to know Islam better.Ex. “6 Gunegar Aurathen”. But can you please help me by guiding if those books are also available in English so that I start reading, simultaneously I will learn urdu Insha Allah.

        Jazakallah Khair
