Madar Al-Huruf

By Qatar Foundation International

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


"Madar Al-Huruf" means "wheel of letters" in Arabic. The wheel was designed to be rotatable on two sides and user friendly, and it introduces users to the Arabic alphabet. Anyone who is completely unfamiliar with the Arabic alphabet is able to write his/her name by matching English letters and sounds to their Arabic phonetic counterparts. Madar Al-Huruf was created and designed by Moneera Al-Badi.

Moneera developed the user guide and worked closely with US- based teachers of Arabic in Washington, DC and Tucson, AZ to finalize the wheel’s design. Two Arabic teachers in Tucson, Arizona, Fatima Abdulkazem and Nour Jandali, created the mini unit and student workbook, making the wheel a truly global endeavor. Fatima and Nour also developed the TSCTSC strategy to write one’s name in Arabic, adapted from the book “Sugar Comes from Arabic: A Beginner’s Guide to Arabic Letters and Words.”

The first version of the app was developed through a partnership with Qatar Foundation International (QFI) and Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI). QFI is a US based member of Qatar Foundation whose mission is dedicated to connecting cultures and advancing global citizenship through education. QCRI is a nonprofit multidisciplinary computing research institute founded by the Qatar Foundation. The current version of the app was developed in partnership with MindGrub Technologies, an award winning US based technology innovation agency.

This app is the virtual form of the physical wheel that was launched in the US by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser during her visit to a 2nd grade classroom in September 2012.
