Holy Quran

Arabic the Language of ISLAM

We all feel touched when we open up a good translation of the meaning of the Quran and we ponder and wonder at the beauty of the words and the deep meanings within. But in reality we are just seeing a glimpse of the real treasure that the Quran is.

Imagine how you’d feel if you could understand the words of Allah in the form in which they were sent down and not just rely on a translation of the meaning in English. Arabic is a language of words with precise, unquestionable meanings as well multiple nuances.

Indeed, it is a language which can, in only a few words, address a very specific topic (e.g. Laws of Inheritance) as well as convey diverse meanings (e.g. As-Samad, one of the names of Allah, cannot be translated into just one word; it can mean the Absolute, the eternally Besought of all, etc.)

Classical Arabic has consistent, predictable rules of grammar, pronunciation, and spelling, making it actually a fairly easy language to learn. It is a poetic language, pleasant to the ear. The mere sound of the Quran being read in Arabic has been able to move even non-Muslims to tears! Subhan-Allah, what a beautiful medium Allah (swt) chose to guide us, teach us, and comfort us!
