As Salamu Alaikum

Jazakallahu Khairan to the Administration for providing us a new section devoted to the Arabic Language.

Sis Hanan, I think, Fear Allah was referring Walid ibn Mughaira who was one of the greatest enemies of the Prophet  (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and he never accepted Islam.

I agree with Sis Ummziba, Arabic is a very difficult language to learn, I know from experience and the best way to learn the language is, in a real class room. Even the grammar is difficult to understand, if one does not have a good teacher.

Alhamdulillah there are many sites where one can learn Arabic and it always helps to get familiar with the words and sounds as it makes it easier for us (non-Arab Muslims) to read the Glorious Qur'an.

After trying on my own using the internet, online classes, books, tapes and other media, I have given up learning Arabic grammar but devised my own method of learning to understand the Glorious Qur'an without a translation. I am trying for the last four years.

Insha Allah this forum will give me the opportunity to share my notes and learn from the experiences of others.

Wa Alaikum Salam
