  • Our Strategy
    • Through these common recitations, we will learn almost 100 words that occur in the Qur’an almost 40,000 times (50% of the words of the Qur’an)
  • Understanding Qur’an vs. Learning Arabic Language 4 Major Differences in our approach www.understandquran.com
  • No. 1: Smooth Start
    • Start from Salah (Why use any other text, when you want to understand Qur’an)…
    • If I want to teach you french and if I know that you speak something in french for 1 hour, I will say: Let us learn that first!
    • A common sense approach
    • Valid for every Muslim man, woman, old, and young, and even for a child because he is…
  • No. 2: Focus on Listening and Reading www.understandquran.com     Language Learning Production Reception - X - Writing - X - Speaking  Reading  Listening Understanding Qur’an
    • More focus on Vocabulary (just the way a child learns…)
    • Less focus on grammar; otherwise if we teach the way shown below, people will run away!
    • يُؤمِنُون
    No. 3: More Focus on Vocabulary غائب، جمع، مذكر، مهموز، باب إفعال فعل مضارع مرفوع بثبوت النون لأنه من الأفعال الخمسة، والواؤ ضمير متصل في محل رفع فاعل www.understandquran.com
  • No. 4: More Focus on Sarf
    • In Grammar, we give
    • More emphasis on Sarf (word construction)
    • Less emphasis on Nahw (sentence construction)
    • Because:
    • We are familiar with the topics of Qur’an;
    • We are learning from existing English translations;
    • We are learning to repeat the translation, rather than ‘translation’ itself.
  • Rules of the Short Course www.understandquran.com
  • Rules …
    • We will learn with love, smiles, and relaxation.
    • This is a thoroughly interactive short course therefore listen attentively, and participate continuously.
    • Listen interactively, with your HEART and have faith that Allah will teach you. Don’t doubt about yourself. ( الرحمن علم القرآن )
  • Rules …
    • Remember the gold rule:
    • I listen, I forget.
    • I see, I remember.
    • I practice, I learn.
    • I teach, I master (more later)
  • Repetition of words in Qur’an
    • كِتَابٌ أَنزَلْنَا هُ إِلَيْ كَ

  • Pondering: What & How?
    • You don’t need it while you read a newspaper!
    • You can’t read a book of science without pondering at each sentence!

    • Direct
    • Personal
    • Planned
    • Relevant
    DPPR www.understandquran.com
  • تدبُّر & تذكُّر : A simple method
    • ASK: Each verse of the Qur’an demands something from us. To fulfill it, start with supplication.
    • EVALUATE (your past day or week in the light of that supplication)
    • Make a PLAN of the next day / week.

  • Example: تدبُّر + تذكُّر
    • Just Prayer / supplication is not enough. One should evaluate his performance and make plans.
    • Example: Do you think a student who just asks Allah to help him succeed is sincere if he does not follow it up with studies?
    • The real target of this course is: تدبر + تذكر
