Not as good as the title suggests!!,
This review is from: Arabic Through the Qur'an (Islamic Texts Society) (Paperback)
This is definitely a thorough book, delving deep into almost all facets of Classical Arabic Grammar, but fundamentally flawed and nothing more than a synopsis of grammatical rules. The flaw is that it is too heavily reliant upon English (namely English grammar). The exercises are very limited but good to see a book of Arabic grammar teaching grammar from the Qur'an itself.If you want to learn Arabic then try the Madina Books or Al-kitab Al-asasi: Fi Ta'lim Al-lugha Al-'arabiya Li-ghayr Al-natiqin Biha: v. 1/Al-kitab Al-asasi: Fi Ta'lim Al-lugha Al-'arabiya Li-ghayr Al-natiqin Biha: 2/Al-Kitab Al-asasi: v. 2: Fi Ta'lim Al-lugha Al-'arabiya Li-ghayr Al-natiqin Biha or al-Arabia bayna Yadyk. BUT if you need to know the English/Latin grammatical terms then get this.

Thanks for your suggestion but just wanted to let you know that those interested in buying the book 'Arabic through the Quran' are interested in learning the Arabic language relevant to their understanding of the Quran hence Quranic Arabic. However the 3 books you suggested are books which teach Modern Standard Arabic while covering a wide range of general topics while touching on the Quran & Haadith. Definitely not the same!!
