With the look and feel of the familiar Windows Explorer, editing, storing, browsing, searching and retrieving your data could not be easier!

Additionally, you can use the very fast internal advanced search tool and find instantly any item you need, whether it is on the tree-structure or amid your notes and texts! TreePad is also highly customizable. And, differently from the usual database programs, TreePad excels in its capacity to store unstructured information of any kind: you have total freedom to define and impose your own structure and preferences. You can create any tree form that suits you, and organize your notes hierarchically according to whatever criteria you define! Moreover, you can easily arrange, rearrange, and add to the tree structure that you develop, as much as you may wish.

TreePad saves you time, allowing you easy and prompt location and retrieval of anything you have stored, And TreePad saves space on your disk, as well: the storage of data in one single file, as TreePad does, uses up far less disk space than storage of an equivalent volume of data in separate files - as most other programs do.

Is Arabic difficult?

YES - and no. Learning Arabic certainly takes time and practice, but there are not many irregularities in the grammar. It's much less complicated than Latin, and probably simpler than German, too.

If you speak a European language, the root system of Arabic is an unfamiliar concept. Arabic words are constructed from three-letter "roots" which convey a basic idea. For example, k-t-b conveys the idea of writing. Addition of other letters before, between and after the root letters produces many associated words: not only "write" but also "book", "office", "library", and "author".

Learning vocabulary may cause problems at first. In most European languages there are many words which resemble those in English. Arabic has very few, but it becomes easier once you have memorised a few roots.

Arabic has many regional dialects, and if you want to master one of these the only really effective way is to spend a few years in the place of your choice. For general purposes – such as reading or listening to radio - it's best to concentrate on Modern Standard Arabic (numerous courses and textbooks are available). This would also be useful if you're interested in Islam, though you would need some additional religious vocabulary.

There are 28 consonants and three vowels – a, i, u – which can be short or long. Some of the sounds are unique to Arabic and difficult for foreigners to pronounce exactly, though you should be able to make yourself understood.

The normal word order of a sentence is verb/subject/object. The function of nouns in a sentence can also be distinguished by case-endings (marks above the last letter of a word) but these are usually found only in the Qur'an or school textbooks.

Feminine nouns add the suffix …aat to form the plural but masculine nouns generally have a "broken" plural which involves changing vowels in the middle of the word: kitaab ("book"); kutub ("books").

Arabic has very few irregular verbs and does not use "is" or "are" at all in the present tense: "the king good" means "the king is good". Subtle alterations in the basic meaning of a verb are made by adding to the root. These changes follow regular rules, giving ten possible "verb forms" (though in practice only three or four exist for most verbs. The root k-s-r produces:

  • form I kasara, "he broke"

  • form II kassara, "he smashed to bits"

  • form VII inkasara, "it was broken up"

Sometimes these must be used with care: qAtala means "he fought" but qatala means "he killed".

Arabic-English Lexicon (Dictionary)

The most scholarly dictionary of the Arabic language available. This work is the product of over thirty years of unrelenting labour. It is a work of such unique greatness that, since its first appearance almost 150 years ago, it has remained to this day supreme in the field of Arabic lexicography. No scholar or group of scholars has produced anything to supplant it. As it originally appeared and was later reproduced, the Lexicon consisted of eight large, cumbersome volumes, which made it difficult to use. Now, for the first time, the Islamic Texts Society has, with no loss whatsoever of clarity or legibility, brought together the eight large volumes into two compact volumes; it is now possible to keep the Lexicon on the work desk and refer to it with ease.

Daftar dialek utama di Arab adalah sebagai berikut:
Dialek Mesir مصري : Dipakai oleh sekitar 76 juta rakyat Mesir.

Ensiklopedi 1 : Bahasa Arab

Bahasa Arab (اللغة العربية al-lughah al-‘Arabīyyah), atau secara mudahnya Arab (عربي ‘Arabī), adalah sebuah bahasa Semitik yang muncul dari daerah yang sekarang termasuk wilayah Arab Saudi. Bahasa ini adalah sebuah bahasa yang terbesar dari segi jumlah penutur dalam keluarga bahasa Semitik. Bahasa ini berkerabat dekat dengan bahasa Ibrani dan bahasa Aram. Bahasa Arab Modern telah diklasifikasikan sebagai satu makrobahasa dengan 27 sub-bahasa dalam ISO 639-3. Bahasa-bahasa ini dituturkan di seluruh Dunia Arab, sedangkan Bahasa Arab Baku diketahui di seluruh Dunia Islam.

Bahasa Arab Modern berasal dari
Bahasa Arab Klasik yang telah menjadi bahasa kesusasteraan dan bahasa liturgi Islam sejak lebih kurang abad ke-6. Abjad Arab ditulis dari kanan ke kiri.
Bahasa Arab telah memberi banyak kosakata kepada bahasa lain dari dunia Islam, sama seperti peranan
Latin kepada kebanyakan bahasa Eropa. Semasa Abad Pertengahan bahasa Arab juga merupakan alat utama budaya, terutamanya dalam sains, matematik adan filsafah, yang menyebabkan banyak bahasa Eropa turut meminjam banyak kata darinya.

Amtsilati : Metode Cepat Belajar Kitab Kuning

Siapa sih yang tidak ingin bisa memahami tulisan-tulisan berbahasa Arab secara baik dan benar?

Tidak ada yang bisa meragu, kitab suci Al-Qur’an dan teks-teks hadits Nabi serta sebagian besar khasanah keislaman disuguhkan dengan bahasa dan tulisan Arab. Ada yang berlebihan bahkan menyebut bahasa Arab sebagai bahasa surga. Akan tetapi melihat huruf-huruf yang kelihatan ruwet dalam kitab-kitab kuning atau kitab gundul itu orang menjadi ngeri. Yang menakutkan lagi, jika orang ingin bisa berbahasa Arab harus mengeram berlama-lama di pesantren, sampai tua dan tidak sempat menikah. Orang harus belajar ilmu nahwu, memutar-mutar harakat sampai ngelu; harus belajar ilmu sharaf yang menegangkan saraf, satu kata dibolak-balik menjadi puluhan kata, puluhan makna. Banyak yang ketakutan bahwa bahasa Arab adalah bahasa tersulit di dunia.

Hal itulah yang menginspirasi Taufiqul Hakim, seorang kiai muda usia, untuk menyusun metode pembelajaran kitab kuning secara cepat, tepat, dan menyenangkan. Metode itu diberi nama ”Amtsilati” yang terinspirasi dari metode belajar cepat membaca Al-Quran, yakni ”Qiro’ati”.

Jika dalam metode Qiro’ati orang bisa belajar membaca Al-Qur’an dengan cepat, maka dengan metode Amtsilati orang akan dapat membaca dan memahami kitab ‘gundul’ kitab tanpa harakat, kenapa tidak!!

“Terdorong dari metode Qiro’ati yang mengupas cara membaca yang ada harokatnya, saya ingin menulis yang bisa digunakan untuk membaca yang tidak ada harokatnya. Terbetiklah nama Amtsilati yang berarti beberapa contoh dari saya yang sesuai dengan akhiran “ti” dari Qiro’ati. Mulai tanggal 27 Rajab 2001, saya merenung dan bermujahadah, dimana dalam thoriqoh ada do’a khusus, yang jika orang secara ikhlas melaksanakannya, insya Allah akan diberi jalan keluar dari masalah apapun oleh Allah dalam jangka waktu kurang dari 4 hari. Setiap hari saya lakukan mujahadah terus-terusan sampai tanggal 17 Ramadhan yang bertepatan dengan Nuzulul Qur’an,” katanya.

”Saat mujahadah, kadang saya ke makam Mbah Ahmad Mutamakin. Di situ kadang seakan-akan berjumpa dengan Syekh Muhammad Baha’uddin An-Naqsyabandiyyah, Syekh Ahmad Mutammakin dan Ibnu Malik dalam keadaan setengah tidur dan setengah sadar. Hari itu seakan-akan ada dorongan kuat untuk menulis. Siang malam saya ikuti dorongan tersebut dan akhirnya tanggal 27 Ramadlan selesailah penulisan Amtsilati dalam bentuk tulisan tangan. Amtsilati tetulis hanya sepuluh hari.”

”Kemudian diketik komputer oleh Bapak Nur Shubki, kang Toni dan kang Marno. Proses pengetikan mulai dari Khulashoh sampai Amtsilati memakan waktu hampir 1 tahun. Kemudian dicetak sebanyak 300 set. Sebagai follow up terciptanya Amtsilati, kami gelar bedah buku di gedung Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) Kabupaten Jepara, tanggal 16 juni 2002 diprakarsai Bapak Nur Kholis. Sehingga timbullah tanggapan dari peserta yang pro dan kontra.”

Diceritakan, Salah satu dari peserta bedah buku di Jepara kebetulan mempunyai kakak di Mojokerto yang menjadi pengasuh Pesantren. Beliau bernama KH. Hafidz pengasuh pondok pesantren “Manba’ul Qur’an”. Beliau berinisiatif untuk menyelenggarakan pengenalan sistem cepat baca kitab kuning Metode Amtsilati, tanggal 30 Juni 2002. untuk acara tersebut Bapak H. Syauqi Fadli sebagai donatur, menyarankan agar dicetak 1000 set buku Amtsilati dan sekaligus untuk acara Hubbur Rosul di Ngabul Jepara.

Dari Mojokertolah dukungan mengalir sampai ke beberapa daerah di Jawa Timur melalui forum yang digelar oleh Universitas Darul Ulum (UNDAR) Jombang, Jember, dan Pamekasan Madura. Sampai saat ini Amtsilati telah tersebar ke pelosok Jawa, bahkan sudah sampai ke luar Jawa, seperti Kalimantan, Batam dan Alhamdulillah telah dikenal di luar negeri, seperti Malaysia. Dalam waktu 4 tahun kitab amtsilati sudah diterbitkan tidak kurang dari 5 juta exemplar.
Kitab Amtsilati pertama kali digandakan dengan mesin foto copy. Hasil penjualannya dipakai untuk menggandakan Amtsilati di mesin percetakan. Kemudian, hasil penjualan selanjutnya digunakan untuk membeli mesin cetak sendiri. Setiap kali cetak sejumlah 5000 ekslempar. Pegawai percetakan adalah masyarakat sekitar, termasuk ibu-ibu rumah tangga.


Taufiqul Hakim lahir pada 14 Juni 1975 di Sidorejo RT. 03 RW. 12 Bangsri, Jepara, Jawa Tengah. Dia adalah anak terakhir dari tujuh bersaudara. Dia bukan keterunan kiai atau bangsawan. Ayah dan ibunya hanya petani. Dari tujuh bersaudara hanya dia yang berprofesi sebagai seorang guru, dan saat ini dia dikenal sebagai kiai. Hal yang paling disesalinya adalah ketika ayahnya meninggal, dia tidak sempat ikut mengantarkan jenazah ayahnya karena harus menyelesaikan tugas belajar.

Dia adalah alumnus Perguruan Islam Matholiul Falah Kajen Pati. Ketika menjadi siswa di Matholiul Falah, dia juga nyantri di Pondok Pesantren Maslakhul Huda Kajen, yang diasuh oleh Rais “am PBNU KH. MA. Sahal Mahfudh. Pada tahun yang sama dia nyantri di Popongan Klaten, belajar Thariqah an-Nagsabandiyah dibimbing oleh KH. Salman Dahlawi, dan dinyatakan lulus setelah belajar selama 100 hari.

Selain sibuk mengajar dan mengisi pelatihan-pelatihan Amtsilati di berbagai kota di Indonesia dia juga tetap produktif menulis. Di antara karyanya adalah Program Pemula Membaca Kitab Kuning: Amtsilati jilid 1-5; Qaidati: Rumus dan Qaidah, Shorfiyah: Metode Praktis Memahami Sharaf dan I’lâl, Tatimmah: Praktek Penerapan Rumus 1-2, Khulashah Alfiyah Ibnu Malik, ‘Aqidati: Aqidah Tauhid, Syari’ati: Fiqih, Mukhtarul Hadits 1-7, Muhadatsah, Kamus At-Taufik 587 halaman, Fiqih Muamalah 1-2, Fiqih Jinayat, Fikih Taharah, Fikih Munakahat, Fikih Ubudiyah 1-2, dan beberapa kitab lainnya. Sudah ada sekitar 30 buku, dan masih terus menulis. “Di mana saja menulis, di mobil, di mana saja menulis. Kalau ada mud menulis, kalo tidak, ya tidak,” katanya.

Pesantren Darul Falah yang dipimpinnya kini membimbing tidak kurang dari 650 santri. Santri Darul Falah ada dua kategori: santri tetap dan santri kilatan. Santri tetap harus mengikuti semua aturan yang ada dalam program Amtsilati, sementara santri kilatan tidak diwajibkan banyak hafalan. Masa belajar bagi santri kilatan antara 1 minggu s.d. dua bulan saja.
Nama Al-Falah diambil dari nama pesantren Matholiul Falah, tempat dia pernah menjadi santri. Secara tidak resmi, Darul Falah ada sejak Taufiqul Hakim lulus dari Pesantren. Secara resmi, Darul Falah didaftarkan ke Notaris (Bapak H. Zainurrohman, S.H. Jepara) tanggal 01 Mei 2002 dengan nomor registrasi 02.


Awalnya Tufiqul hakim menyimpulkan bahwa ternyata tidak semua nadzam atau syair dalam kitab Alfiyah yang disebut-sebut sebagai babonnya gramatikal arab itu tidak semuanya digunakan dalam praktek membaca kitab kuning. Dia menyimpulkan bahwa dari 1000 nazham Alfiyah yang terpenting hanya berjumlah sekitar 100 sampai 200 bait, sementara nazham lainnya sekedar penyempurna. Dengan bekal hafalan dan pemahamannya terhadap kitab Alfiyah, dia mulai menyusun metode Amtsilati. Penyusunan tersebut dia mulai dari peletakan dasar-dasarnya kemudian terus berkembang sesuai kebutuhan.

Amtsilati memberi rumusan berpikir untuk memahami bahasa Arab. Di sana ada rumusan sistematis untuk mengetahui bentuk atau posisi satu kata tertentu. Hal ini dapat dilihat pada rumus utama isim dan fi’il atau tabel. Lalu juga ada rumus bayangan dhamīr untuk mengetahui jenis atau kata tertentu; penyaringan melalui dzauq (sensitivitas) dan siyāqul kalām (konteks kalimat).

Sebelum memasuki praktek, Amtsilati telah memberi rambu-rambu mengenai kata-kata yang serupa tapi tak sama (homonimi: homografi, homofoni). Kata-kata yang serupa ini bisa terjadi dari beberapa kemungkinan: isim; fi’il mādhi; fi’il mudhāri’; fi’il amar; isim fi’il; huruf; dhamīr; isyrāh; maushūl; dan lainnya. Rumus selengkapnya terangkum dalam buku Tatimmah 1 hal. 3-7, 10, 12, 15-34.

Kelebihan Amtsilati adalah peletakan rumus secara sitematis, dan penyelesaian masalah gramatikal Bahasa Arab melalui penyaringan dan pentarjihan. Selain itu, rumus yang pernah dipelajari diikat dengan hafalan yang terangkum dalam dua buku khusus, yaitu “Rumus Qaidati” dan “Khulashah Alfiyah”. Diharapkan, para pemula tidak perlu bersusah-susah mempelajari bahasa Arab selama 3 sampai 9 tahun; cukup 3 sampai 6 bulan saja.

Abdul Rosyid Ketua Forum Mahasiswa Alumni Pesantren Lirboyo (FORMAL)Tulisan ini diambil dari skripsi penulis berjudul “Metode Amtsilati dalam Proses Penerjemahan: Studi Analisis Buku ‘Program Pemula Membaca Kitab Kuning’, Karya H. Taufiqul Hakim” di Jurusan Tarjamah Fakultas Adab dan Humaniora Universitas Islam Negeri (UIN) Jakarta.

Kadang kita merasa kebingungan ketika akan mencari sebuah kata kunci berbahasa arab. Harus bagaimana ini? Akhirnya kita transliterasikan saja ke bahasa utama kita. Namun hal tersebut tidak dapat mengoptimalkan hasil pencarian yang kita mau.

Ternyata Google mempunyai fitur "Arabic Google Search" lho... Secara tidak langsung fitur ini menjadi solusi bagi Anda yang ingin menulis huruf arab atau frasa bahasa arab tanpa menginstall Arabic OS. Mau coba? klik
