ARBC-101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is the most patient, merciful, and kind teacher you will ever meet. He treats his students like his own children and he teaches out of love. You have to work hard in this class to understand the language. He's a very easy and flexible grader, but if you truly want to learn Arabic, you have to work hard. Take this class, you wont regret it.

By far, the most helpful and best Arabic professor I had. Okay, this class is hard and you have to work for the A. BUT you learn SO SO much. If you're truly interested in learning Arabic, you'll benefit immensely from his way of teaching, His grammar and explanations are very sound as well, and he makes things crystal clear in Arabic. Great prof.!

PHIL114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Okay.. I took 2 classes with him. I took Arabic and was on his bad side because I was with a group of friends and honestly wasn't able to pay full attention lol I don't blame him I took intro to islam in the fall of 09. And it was very beneficial! I learned soo much and gained lots of knowledge. If you listen to the lectures and take notes you will gain lots of knowledge. Course is pretty simple :)

Professor Siddiqi is extremely knowledgeable about Islam. He wants everyone in the class to pass. He gives a practice midterm and final which are extremely helpful. As long as you take notes during the lecture you should be fine. All the people that gave him a low rating probably just disagree with his view on things.

Don't be discouraged to take this professor. Everyone who rated him lower is either an extreme Christian and really took the class to just disagree or someone who thinks they know the meaning of "social liberialism". He does have a bit of a temper, but the final and midterms are given to you as practices so you can study them. This class is easy.

I took intro to Islam and he is NOT very helpful. He has a strong accent which made it a bit hard for me to understand. His lectures are extremely boring. There is no homework for his class. Only one midterm, a research paper, a group presentation, and the final exam. Overall the class is pretty easy he just makes it so boring. And he is not very n

PHIL114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Interesting teacher/class. Teaches true Islam for what it is, and corrects media stereotypes. Don't agree with everything, but he'll agree to disagree versus getting upset. Hard to argue and listen to sometimes because he is immune to the logic of social liberalism. Remember to subject what he teaches as "accepted science" to strict scrutiny.
