Until now, for students of Islamic studies in Indonesia, Egypt is still the ka'batu al quṣṣād, with Al Azhar University located in the city of Cairo as its centre. From year to year, since the era before Indonesia's independence, Indonesian students have flocked to continue their formal and informal studies in Egypt. With these years of experience, cooperation between Indonesia and Egypt in student education is also always improving. One of them is the existence of a language enrichment program or al lugah cycle for prospective students who are considered to need additional classes in the field of mastering the Arabic language. This article describes the study experience of Indonesian students and students in Egypt who are still part of the language enrichment program from the maqāṣid al-sharī‘ah perspective. This research is field research and qualitative. Data was collected through observation, interviews and documentation. The data collected was analyzed with the theory of maqāṣid al-sharī‘ah. The conclusion of this article explains that Indonesian students who are undergoing a language enrichment program feel that during the al lugah cycle program, they feel helped by the materials taught at their alma mater in Indonesia, including Nahwu, Sharf, Conversation and Listening Skills. Even so, students find it difficult when faced with communication using the āmiyyah language or Arabic which has been collaborated with the Egyptian dialect (lahjah), due to the difference between Arabic (fuṣḥah) received in classes and Arabic (āmiyyah) found in activities outside the classroom.
