Are there any resources(Books,online) for learning about Buddhism for Arabic speakers?

الدامابادا
The Dhammapada. Translated by Saadi Youssef

البوذية
Claude B. Levenson, Le Bouddhisme. Translated by Muhammad Ali


I expect there’ll be more. The places to look are sites like this which specialize in etexts of books that are banned in some Arab-speaking countries. Unfortunately this will mean wading through dozens of texts relating to evangelical Christianity, anti-Islamic polemics, and defences of the theory of evolution. :lol:

Alternatively you might try searching for the word الدامابادا (“al-Damapada”). The Dhammapada is available from several hundred Arabic sites and some of them may have other Buddhist texts too.

You might also put your query to Arjuna Pranidhi Uddiyana, the editor of the Arabic section at the Berzin Archives. Though the Archives are actually Vajrayanist in orientation, nevertheless their materials tend to treat the Theravada much more fairly and accurately than is usually the case with Tibetan outfits.
