come to you running!!) - Hadeeth

Easy to Learn!
 Allah says, “Verily We have made Al-Qur'an
EASY to understand and remember”
 So the suggestion that “Al-Qur'an is difficult”
is from shaitan! Even in your thoughts, NEVER
agree with it and NEVER say it.
 Do we want to contradict what Allah says in
the Qur’an? (May Allah forgive us!)
8
Easy to Learn!
 Allah has made His Al-Qur'an easy for us
in many wonderful ways. For example,…

The words of Surah Fatihah are
repeated …
7500 times in Al-Qur'an!
9
Easy to Learn: Step 1
 Words (and their derivatives) from Salaah
–
the Surah Fatiha, 6 often used small surahs,
the usual dhikr words and 4 usual du’aas are
found 40,000 times in the Qur’aan.
 This means 50% of the words… or every 2nd
word in the Qur’aan is from DAILY Salaah!
 That is the content of our Short Course-1
10
Easy to Learn: Step 2
 Additional Recitations
- 5 Last Surahs
- Selections from the Qur’an
- Supplications
Learnt Basic Words (from 2 courses) : 250
Occurrences in Al-Qur'an
: 55,000
 That is the content of our Short Course -2
11
After the 2 Short Courses …
Unfamiliar/New words found in Al-Qur'an
 Juz’/ Paarah 1
: 20 per page
 Juz’ / Paarah 2 to 5
: 12 per page
 Juz’ / Paarah 6 to 28

Repetition / Reinforcement Opportunity on
Every Page of Al-Qur'an!
 New Words per page
: 20
 TOTAL words per page
: 130
 Repeated words
: 110
Therefore, each page ensure enough revision of
the words that have learnt earlier!!!
14
Human Brain Capacity???
 New Words memorizable per Day
 The Secret of this Capacity
: 15
: Repetition
Repetition ensures that the learnt words get stored
in the PERMANENT MEMORY of the brain
15
The Problem is NOT Time or Effort,
It is just your Attitude , your Thought!
 Make it a Part of your Daily Routine Life.
 Like you eat 3 times and drink water 5-6 times.

When you want to memorize the meaning of
new words, follow the Sunnah of Allah (for
memorizing… because that is the way He
designed the brain).
 For this, adopt 2 main aids:
– Vocabulary sheets & Posters
– Friends (to help you and team up with)
17
Just 200 hours!
 To understand Al-Qur’an, you need 200 Hours!
(20 hours for the 2 short courses + 6 hours for
each of the 30 Juz’u/Paarah)
 Start A.S.A.P. (As Soon As Possible)

When you have any way decided to learn,
Why Delay?
18
Du’aa
May Allah (Sub-hanahu wa Ta-’aalah) help us to:
 Read Al-Qur'an
 Understand Al-Qur'an
 Reflect/Contemplate upon Al-Qur'an
 Implement / Act upon Al-Qur'an
 Spread the learning and the message of Al-
Qur'an
(Aameen!)

Understanding Qur’an
vs.
Learning Arabic Language
3 Major Differences in our approach
27
27
No. 1: Smooth Start
 Start from Salah (Why use any other text,
for 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: Learn that first!
 A common sense approach
 Valid for every Muslim man, woman, old,
and young, and even for a child …
28

No. 2: Focus on Listening
and Reading

No. 3: More Focus on Vocabulary
 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!

‫فعل مضارع مرفوع بثبوت النون ألنه من األفعال‬
‫ والواو ضمير متصل في محل رفع فاعل‬،‫الخمسة‬
