    You can get a cheap enough arabic tutor online who can take you through a curriculum via zoom or Skype. Plenty of websites available. You won't always find a free course that suits your time table so just pay if possible, usually very well worth it.

    You'll be able to find a teacher that uses a curriculum of your choosing that way too and can fit the lessons in whenever you want at reasonable notice.

    If you are in the UK then I recommend Sacred Texts. Taught by Shaykh Sjaad Hussain, a classmate of Shaykh Asrar. Though there are plenty of free sources available here and on YouTube. Find what works best for you.

    Thank you for the recommendations brother. I sincerely appreciate it.
    Is Imran Alawiye a good source to learn arabic from? Do you recommend any books or online courses?

    It is important also to have a solid grasp of philosophy and logic. The book Mantiq al Jilani has been translated into English.
    Some ulama also recommend Peter Kreeft’s Socratic Logic (ignoring his Catholic bias).
    I found the text very helpful.

    I don’t think anyone should go deeper into Kalam or Philosophy without these basics. The best thing to do after you have read them is to find a Sunni shaykh to study with.

    (There’s not much great stuff in English, learn Arabic )

    You should buy the translation of Aqeedah Sanusiyah by Shaykh Abdul Aziz Suraqah. This includes a translation of Shaykh Saeed Fodeh's notes. You should also purchase the book Islam Answers Atheism by Shaykh Asrar Rashid.
