Learning Arabic is no more difficult than any othe language


Contrary to popular belief, to learn Arabic Grammar in my opinion is not any more difficult than other languages . There are two steps for learning Arabic. First is word Morphology (Ilm us Sarf) and second is Sentence Construction (ilm un Nahw). We have books on both subjects and then there are other books on analyzing and understanding the Qur'an, available now and coming in future insha-Allah. 


Umar bin al-Khattab (radiallahu anhu) said: "Learn the Arabic (language) because it is from your religion and learn the laws of inheritance because they are from your religion". (Reported by Ibn Abi Shaybah 6/118) 


Imaam al-Shaafa'i (rahimahullah) said (as occurs in Irshaad al-Fuhool page 421): It is obligatory upon every Muslim to learn from the Arabic language what allows him to make effort in fulfilling his obligations.


Ibn Taimiyyah (rahimahullah) said: "For the Arabic language itself is from the religion, having knowledge of it is an obligation because understanding the Book and the Sunnah is an obligation. And (the religion) can not be understood except by understanding the Arabic language, and that without which an obligation can not be fulfilled is itself Obligatory. Then, from it, is that which is obligatory upon everyone individually, and from it, is that, which is a collective obligation". (al-Iqtidaa page 295).
