Arabic language learning, Dyslexic Students, Naqli and Aqli knowledge, learning tools, knowledge integration


This qualitative study addresses a conceptual framework for integrating naqli (religious education) and aqli (conventional knowledge) into Arabic language learning tools for dyslexic students. Literature reviews and document analysis techniques were used in order to study backgrounds and processes related to the proposed framework. The results are then presented narratively, starting with the four identifiable categories of naqli and aqli integration and how it can help determine the set-up of an instrument of Arabic language knowledge transfer, which is designed to help individuals with dyslexia. Each level is established to serve either as an independent entity that balances each other out, or to take the form of a stage in a process that influences other processes. Understanding how the integration works is fundamental to bringing about effective implementation of Dyslexia Arabic Language Learning Tools (DALT). Within the framework of the naqli-aqli integration, knowledge and expertise will have to be coupled with good character to foster learners’ civic development.
