Years back, my friend offered me to learn Arabic grammar. I had never bothered learning Arabic grammar until I experienced a striking moment in my life. Before that, I was just an ordinary Muslim who considered learning Quran confined to mere recitation. If sometimes (very rarely) I felt overwhelmed with emaan, I used to read the translation of the ayah also while I recited. For that purpose, I had a copy of the Quran with translation in my native language.

When did I decide to learn Arabic grammar?

It was soon after my marriage when my first child was eight months old. Children are blessings! Especially when you have your very first child. Holding your child in your arms for the very first time is indeed an incredibly joyous moment. I bet no one would deny my statement, which is a mother or a father himself. Every single moment of your child is unique, especially if it is your first one. Just as an average parent, I was also excited about my first child. When she opened her eyes, when she smiled at me for the first time, I remember every moment when she responded to my voice with her giggles. She was now eight months old and was an active toddler, but she had not learned to walk yet. I was offering my Zohar prayer one day while my husband was also at home. While I was in my first rakah, she was playing nearby with her toy. Even in salah, she was in my peripheral vision and somehow managed to get my attention when she stood up, holding the corner of the table. I was alarmed as I raised for qayam in Salah. The very next moment was surprising for me; she just left her grip off the table, balancing her body weight on her tiny little feet (by that time, I had finished reciting surah Fatiha). She raised one foot and took a small step. Involuntarily my mouth opened wide to aw in amazement as if to say,” OMG ! OMG! she took her first step, she took her first step!”. By the will of ALLAH, I was memorizing surah Al Munafiqoon these days. Thus i was reciting surah Al-munafiqoon in salah. And can you imagine? the very following ayah I recited was the 9th ayah of surah al munafiqoon :

 “O you who believe! Let not your properties or your children divert you from the remembrance of Allâh. And whosoever does that, then they are the losers.”

(63:9)
The meaning of this ayah shook me. Moments ago, I was more diverted towards the actions of my daughter, even in salaah. I had missed entirely this pure miraculous message from ALLAH had I not memorized the meaning of this ayah by chance. We do not learn Arabic grammar. Hence we miss out on lots of profound messages from the Quran in our daily life. We spend so much time, money, and effort attending university and college, but we are too busy for an Arabic grammar course. Is the message of our Lord so unimportant for us that we can not learn Arabic grammar to understand it? Instead we depend on translations done by other people. It’s not bad that you read the translation, by why can your effort to understand the actual message by yourself. We all are well aware that a translation can never deliver the whole essence of the exact text. Still, we never try to learn Arabic grammar. I invite all of you to join our Arabic grammar course and learn Arabic grammar with us. We offer FREE three days trial as well. (a story inspired by the lecture of Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan)
