Reading the Quran While Knowing Arabic Gives a Deeper Understanding
"We have not sent any Messenger except with the language of his people so he can make things clear to them. Allah misguides anyone He wills and guides anyone He wills. He is the Almighty, the All-Wise.” (Quran 14:4)
The Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (SAW) who was an Arab fourteen centuries ago by Allah (SWT). It is the last of the divine scriptures as Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is the last messenger that Allah (SWT) towards mankind. What makes Prophet Muhammad (SAW) unique among all the other prophets that were sent to guide people to the straight path is the fact whereas all the previous prophets were sent for a specific time to a specific nation, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was sent towards the entirety of mankind for all time until the Day of Judgment. It is no doubt that all those that were caught in the decadent darkness of the time were blessed by Allah (SWT) when He in all His great mercy sent Prophet Muhammad (SAW) to guide them towards a better path. Since the last messenger was sent to the people of Arabia it is only logical as shown by the above ayah that the Quran also be revealed in the language of the same people. As common sense dictate that had the Quran been sent in any other foreign language it would not have been possible to perceive and understand it accordingly. There was a time that the people of the Arabia thought of the Quran as the imaginations of a sophisticated human mind, but as it was revealed in their own language, a language that according to themselves they had a mastery upon it became quickly evident to them that the holy book of Islam was not and in fact could not be thought up by a human.
It is very important especially in today’s world where the Muslims are under pressure, to learn the Arabic language. Not only it is the language of the Quran but it is a proven fact that reading the Quran while knowing Arabic gives a deeper understanding to the learner.
