بسم الله الرجمن الرحيم خطبة الحاجة...إن الحمد لله... : Welcome! Brothers and sisters we are extremely happy to welcome you to this new and practical approach to understanding the Arabic Language … ‘ Understanding the Quraan...for Allaah’ بسم الله الرجمن الرحيم خطبة الحاجة...إن الحمد لله... Orientation Session 1 Understanding the Quraan...for Allaah

PowerPoint Presentation : Orientation Session Understanding the Quraan...for Allaah 2 Al hamdulillaah , who revealed the Quraan in the clear Arabic tongue. It contains the guidance and is preserved and available (the only available revelation). Therefore, it is upon Muslims to make a dedicated effort to find this guidance through studying the Arabic – as there is no better way to benefit from it. No other language used can ever bring out the Magnificence found in the Quraan (from all angles) - no matter how good the translation. So one who is a Muslim and does not understand this language is doing himself a great injustice for which he or she would deeply regret when regret is going to be of no benefit (i.e. on the Day of Judgment) – and Allaah ’ s help is sought. So, it is a responsibility upon every Muslim to make a serious effort to learn this language and to get his family involved in this majestic undertaking that only has good, as long as one is sincerely doing it for Allaah, the Almighty.

Why this initiative…our aims and objectives : Orientation Session Understanding the Quraan...for Allaah 3 Why this initiative …our aims and objectives Why this initiative… It is obligatory to understand the Quraan and sunnah , since it is the basis of this deen and they are both in Arabic. Muslims, including many Arabs are moving away from this Language; it is truly amazing that many Arabs do not even understand the Quraan when they read it. There are many programmes that are out there but they were developed to be taught to foreign students in Arabic setting so they would not be the most practical methods to apply in places where Arabic is not spoken. OUR AIMS To set a sound basis upon which Muslims can build so that they can understand the Quraan and sunnah in Arabic. To help Muslims to Understand the deen – pillars of Islaam, Eemaan and issues of the heart, etc. through Arabic To strive to assist in reviving the pure Arabic Language and bring it into the lives of Muslims To develop a program that is practical and more suited for places that are non-Arabic To make it free (in shaa Allaah)

Our take … : Orientation Session Understanding the Quraan...for Allaah 4 Our take … After looking at this serious problem we thought that there must be a different way for Muslims to try to get an understanding of this language – even if, in the end, they cannot speak the language as a language, if they can understand what they recite from Quraan, du`aa , dhikr , etc., this would be a great achievement. Point to ponder: Brothers and sisters, everyday, if you know to read the Quraan in Arabic, pray your 5 Solaah , do your Adhkkaar after it – do your morning and evening Dhikr and make du`aas that are for specific situations and also general du`aas you are already interacting everyday with thousands of Arabic words! You are already a far way into learning the language since you are reading, listening and in many cases speaking complete, perfectly structured sentences in Arabic and more fluent Fushah than many Arabic natives – is this not something great that Allaah has blessed you with! Your responsibility: Concentrate to learn those words you are already interacting with in the areas mentioned above.

Our Contribution to assist in this important endevor : Orientation Session Understanding the Quraan...for Allaah 5 Our Contribution to assist in this important endevor OUR APPROACH: An intensive Arabic Course designed and presented to help students strengthen their relationship with Allaah, the Almighty.  The method employed : To get Muslims to know what they say when the are speaking to Allaah either in reciting Quraan, Praying or when making du`aa and Dhikr . So, our goal in the first semester is toconcentrate on getting students to understand and interact with hundreds of Arabic words they are already speaking on a regular basis from: Sooras of the Quraan already memorised dhikr and du`aa for s alaah already memorised after solaah , morning and evening and before sleep as well as learning new concepts in the Arabic Language and about issues relating to everyday life (taken from Madina Books and Al- Arabiyah baina Yadaik .  b) Then, to slowly introduce new words from new sooras studied from the Quraan and also from Dhikr and du`aa they would be asked to memorise as part of the program c) Instructions are given to the students in the fundamentals of the Arabic language through three subjects: Qur'aan ,  s alaah , and Arabic Grammar, setting a firm foundation in Arabic and a helping to achieve a deeper understanding of the Qur'aan and the  S alaah.

Your Challenge : Orientation Session Understanding the Quraan...for Allaah 6 Your Challenge Being a non-Arab and studying the Arabic has many challenges for one who is studying it in an Arabic environment, much less to do it in a setting that is devoid of the language. Since, it is a daunting task to study it out of an Arabic speaking environment, the student must know from the beginning that it would be very difficult. This should not distract them, since the fruits are tremendous and if one is sincere to Allaah, the Almighty – He would make a way out and facilitate it for him/her. This is a test of your sincerity so no matter how difficult, just stick with it… If you are one who puts up a barrier and tell yourself you cannot learn it, - know, this is a trap of Shaitaann . Lack of interaction with the Arabic Language makes it even more difficult - that is why I would suggest for students to find Arabic speaking people to interact with – however, only speak Fushah . Many students are very shy when it comes to speaking since they do not want to make mistakes – this is another hindrance in the learning process. There is no shyness when it comes to learning… Another thing Muslims have to tell themselves is that if they can understand the Quraan, hadeeth and what is said in the solaah then this would be a massive achievement, so they should make an effort to stick with the course even if that is all they learn. Many people feel that if they give an hour or two every week that that would be enough for them to learn and understand this language – such persons are deluded and in my experience, they would only become frustrated and in many instances they would be turned off. Additionally, even if they begin again, it would be the first few lessons and they never get further. From my experience at least 5 hours per week must be given for just classes plus whatever time is needed to understand and deliver what is learnt in that week (even if that means an additional 5-10 hours, you just have to give time, period) – And Allaah alone knows.

PowerPoint Presentation : Length of Program: 2 years (6 semester) - each semester will run for 12 weeks Weekly demand : 3 sessions of 1hour 15 minutes each (minimum) Coarse demand per semester: Approximately 35 hours of class time i.e. 10 weeks plus one week for mid-term review (3 sessions)and one week (3 sessions) for end of term review Course demand for 2 years: Approximately 210 hours of instructions (in shaa Allaah) – can you imagine all of this in only 10 days). Course content: Quraan, Solaah (or another pillar of Islaam, pillars of eemaan , etc.), and Arabic Grammar Orientation Session 7 Understanding the Quraan...for Allaah PROGRAM OUTLINE

What is needed from you : GRATITUDE - Understand that this a grace from Allaah and be grateful SINCERITY - Clarify your aim in your heart – make sure you are doing it for Allaah, the Most High Alone Du`aa – Beg for help (make lots of du`aa ) – remember you need His help throughout this journey Commitment – To fully commit and stick with the program to the end Patience – it is going to be difficult so regardless of the obstacles you are not going to give up Orientation Session 8 Understanding the Quraan...for Allaah What is needed from you

What is in it for you! : Orientation Session 9 Understanding the Quraan...for Allaah What is in it for you! What should be achieved after these two years inshaa'Allaah The most important concern that we have for our students is that they get closer to Allaah, so our entire program is geared to deal with the issues from a spiritual perspective inshaa’Allaah . Thus, if the students’ practice of Islaam, and his eemaan is enhanced we would have achieved our major objective.
