Why Learn Arabic



  

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرّحيْمِ

الْحَمدُ لِلّٰهِ وَ كَفٰى وَ سَلَامٌ عَلٰى عِبادِهِ الّذِيِنَ اصْطَفٰى

Al-Qur'an is a book of knowledge and wisdom. This is where our creator is telling us
how to live our lives.We recite parts of it in our prayers. Understanding what we 
are reciting in our salah is critical. We need to learn enough Arabic to understand what 
our Creator is saying and to practice it. We don't have to be an Arabic or Qur'an scholar 
but need to know enough to understand the only connection we have with Allah SWT. 
 
Messenger of Allah, Peace be upon him said: Learn Arabic for three reasons. 
It is his language, it is the language of Qur'an and it is the language of people of jannah. 
Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala chose Arabic for His final Revelation.
 
Imaam Shaafa'i raziallahu anhu said that knowledge is what is important, not what you 
memorize.
 
Learning Arabic will also help you understand the traditions (ahadiths) which is the 
second most important part of our faith after Qur'an. Messenger of Allah alaihi assalatu 
wassalam also said: I am leaving you two things which if you hold on to, you will never 
be defeated and destroyed, the Qur'an and my traditions.
