How do I pronounce al-jabr and al-Khwarizmi?

In a lecture I am planning, I will mention that the words "algebra" and "algorithm" come from a book called al-Jabr w'al-Muqabala
by Muḥammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī. I don't speak Arabic but would like to pronounce the names as accurately as possible. Can anyone advise me on Arabic pronunciation?
