Arabic-Why Learn it?

Post  khalillaher on Sun Aug 29, 2010 10:25 pm

"We have made it a Qur'an in Arabic, that ye may be able to understand (and learn wisdom)." [Quran 43:3]

إنَّ اللُغَةَ العَرَبِيةَ مِنَ الدِّيْنِ وَ مَعْرِفَتُهَا فَرْضٌ وَاجِبٌ فَإنَّ فَهْمَ الكِتَابِ وَ السُّنَّةِ فَرْضٌ وَ لاَ يُفْهَمُ إلاَّ بِاللُغَةِ العَرَبِيةِ وَ مَا لاَ يَتِمُّ الوَاجِبُ إلاَّ بِهِ فَــــــــهُوَ وَاجِبٌ

“Indeed the Arabic language is from the Religion, knowing it is an obligatory obligation, understanding the Book and the Sunnah is obligatory, it is not understood except by way of the Arabic language, and an obligation is not complete except by it therefore making it obligatory (to learn) .”

Ibn Taymiyyah

"I was brought up in one language (that of Khawarizm) … I learnt Arabic and Persian later, and I therefore come as an outsider to both these languages, my command of which I strive to perfect. But I must confess that I would rather be insulted in Arabic than praised in Persian."
Al-Biruni (d. 1050 CE)
