WordReference.com - Arabic Forumhttp://forum.wordreference.com/forumdisplay.php?f=41
The most active forum on Arabic on the web. Good number of natives. 5 years running have made it rich in topics, specially good to learn expressions. Therefore, answers tend to not be either linguistics-oriented or according to Western books but closer to how MSA is taught in Arab countries. (This is both good and bad in various ways.) There are also many discussions on questions on Arabic vernaculars. As a small
downside to the greatness of this place, it's completely question-answer oriented, so things like games or general discussions are a no-no with a much more strict moderation than here when it comes to off-topic comments.Sakhr Ajeeb! عجيب Dictionaryhttp://dictionary.sakhr.com/
Vowelled dictionary. Probably the best non-pdf Arabic-English dictionary online. The problem is that it tends to not give good direct equivalents but more like throws words in the surrounding semantic class probably in an attempt to define words better, neither provides plurals, maṣdar's, prepositions that the verbs rule, or vowelling of the Imperfect conjugation.Desert-Sky.com - Arabic sectionhttp://arabic.desert-sky.net/
Site created by user layla_n
, a student of Arabic and Egyptian Arabic. Includes some wordlists according to some basic semantic groups (e.g., food, clothes), and address many basic Standard Arabic and Egyptian Arabic grammar points. The site is outstandingly good, specially as it provides all broken plurals, maṣdar's, vowelling of the Imperfect conjugation, and *sometimes* verb-ruled prepositions in its wordlists.DictionaryBay.com - Arabic Dictionaries sectionhttp://www.dictionarybay.com/

Sort of like the Arabic counterpart to English's UrbanDictionary.com, content is generated by users, explanations are in Arabic, it includes an example sentence for each word. Entries are classified by dialect from Maġrebi to ‘Iraqi. Lousy ‘Arabizy transcriptions are given for the pronunciation. It also includes a thumbs up and thumbs down button.Google Books - Grammars, Arabic-English dictionaries, and a workbook

Only use it if you're that annoyed of having to choose from Yamli's guesses. My personal recommendation for Windows users.Academia Virtual Al-Madrasahttp://www.almadrasa.org/recursos/
Spanish site on Arabic. Most of it is not in Spanish though, since it mainly contains tables of conjugations and prepositions+pronouns. I specially recommend having a look at the Fonts ("Fuentes") section.
Sitio español sobre el árabe. Eso sí, la mayor parte no está en español, ya que principalmente contiene sólo tablas de conjugaciones y preposiciones+pronombres. Recomiendo especialmente mirar la sección de fuentes tipográficas.Transliteration.org - Qur’ānhttp://transliteration.org/quran/WebSit ... Fram2E.htm
