Why Learn Quraanic Arabic

No matter how good translation we do, we lose its true beauty, essence, emotions, sprit, psychology, etc. Transformation is not 100% percent accurate. If an English speaking person who does not understand French but reads French Newspaper without understanding it and says I have read it, people will say you are fool, you don’t understand a single sentence of it and cannot explain any part of it. Many Holy Books have lost its transformation due to translation. To understand it let us have an example.

Above is from a poem of famous poet Akbar Allahabadi. Basic meaning of it is, “during the time of British Empire in India when kingdom of Mughal Empire was defeated by British Empire, kings became slaves and slaves became kings”, and Akbar Allahabadi captured that in his poetry.

Jewish children from any state are born to learn Hebrew language in depth, why NOT Muslims?

Read (with understanding) that which has been revealed to you of the Book and keep up prayer; surely prayer keeps (one) away from indecency and evil, and certainly the remembrance of Allah is the greatest, and Allah knows what you do, (Ref: Al_Quraan_029:045).

Salah/Prayers may not help prevent one from evils who don’t understand the Quraanic Arabic Language.

Learning Quraanic Arabic Language is extremely important to understand its true beauty, essence, emotions, sprit, psychology, etc. and most importantly true message of Allah, especially during the Salah/Prayers. It was the Quraanic Arabic Language in which when Hazrat Umar Farooq (ra) heard the recitation of the Quraan from his sister and brother-in-law Saeed bin Zaid and later accepted Islaam. It was the people of Makkah who used to say don’t listen to the Quraan, rather make loud noises that no one can hear it, since many people after sincerely hearing it, became Muslims. Learning Quraanic Arabic Language is extremely important. All Institutions Must Start Teaching Quraanic Arabic Language for Free to Develop Global Peace. Please don’t give bad examples of Hypocrites and other disbelievers, rather always give good examples of hundreds of thousands of Sahabas, who accepted Islaam. Those who oppose Learning Quraanic Arabic Language are either Hypocrites or Disbelievers or have no common sense.

Surely We have revealed it -- an Arabic Quran-- that you may understand, (Ref: Al_Quraan_012:002).

Do they not then reflect on the Quraan? Nay, on the hearts there are locks, (Al_Quraan_047.024).

Let us see what Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) will be saying about us on the Day of Judgment, since many of us LEFT the Quraan:

Then the Messenger will say: "O my Lord! Truly my people took this Quraan for just foolish nonsense", (Al_Quraan_025.030).

In the Quraan Allah has told us that “… This day have I perfected your Religion for you and completed My FAVOR unto you, and have chosen for you as religion AL-ISLAAM”, (Al_Quraan_005.003).

If anything is completed, does it NEED any Additions or Subtractions or Alterations? The absolute answer to this is only and only NO. Therefore any Hadeeth contradicting the Quraan, we are not supposed to accept and those are NOT Authentic Hadeeth. Since Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) already warned about the spreading of Hadeeth and how to verify them. So We all must have to follow that and a single proof should be enough for this that there are some Poor Hadeeth and we need to test all of them according to the Quraan. The Quraan is the real Authentic Source, FREE from and ERROR or CONTRADICTION.

Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious, (Ref: Al_Quraan_016.125).

Non-Practicing Muslims are like ASS / Donkey carrying books, (Ref: Al_Quraan_062.005).

None argue concerning the revelations (Ayaat) of Allah BUT those who Disbelieve …, (Al_Quraan_040.004).

The Quraan cannot be translated completely, BUT its message can be, Keep Reading Translations of the Quraan till you learn Quraanic Arabic. Translation of the Quraan is a Bridge to Understand the Quraan. Every Masjid must start Free Quraanic Arabic Course for those, who don’t understand Quraanic Arabic.

Road Blocker to Quraanic Arabic Language:

Immediately establish Quraanic Arabic Language as National Language for Muslims as First Step to Re-Establish Khilafah.

Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) appointed sahabah to teach the Quraanic Arabic Language to Salman Farsi. Later he (the little minority) was appointed to serve Islaamic Government.

The adaptation of Quraanic Arabic Language as the Language of UMMAH is a Movement for the restoration of the Khilafah and anyone opposes it, is opposing Re-Establishment of Khilafah.

Anyone who opposes to learning or teaching the Quraanic Arabic Language in Masjid don’t deserve to be called as Muslim rather Hypocrites. Look how this Ummah is widely divided and one after another is falling down many of them don’t understand each other, cannot talk to each other. How can a Chinese understand Amharic language of Ethiopia. How to communicate to Allah in Salah?
