  1. Jazaka Allahu Khayran.

    And who is better in speech than he who [says: “My Lord is Allah (believes in His Oneness),” and then stands firm (acts upon His Order), and] invites (men) to Allah’s, and does righteous deeds, and says: “I am one of the Muslims.”

  3. i can read arabic well, can understand it to a very small extent. i want to learn it in detail. if u could suggest some link , ill be obliged.

    • These books are for learning Arabic only.
      It is graded book series, and you will love learning Inshaa’Allah. If you can understand basic Arabic, it is very good for to proceed at a faster speed. Try book 1 first, may be you will finish the book quickly, Inshaa’Allah. Then go to Book 2.
      Other links I will find out and suggest, Inshaa’Allah.
      I feel these books are the best for non-Arabic speakers like us.

      • Indeed these books are great. actually i am native Urdu speaker. In our Islamiat course at high school, we were required to learn some surahs by heart , it was part of the Quranic Lessons.The tafseer, context etc. so that helped me understand some of the meanings of arabic words. i can not construct sentences, nor am i familiar with grammatical usage though i can understand the meanings of some “huruf”. So yes if you come across any more resources, il be glad to make use of them.
        and the Madina books are amazing. Thank you so much ! God bless u for the wownderful effort. Ameen.

        • Yes, I am aware as that is the approach adopted in Muslim schools in Pakistan, India and other parts of the world.
          Arabic is not taught in detail nor the syllabus and time-frame allows the teachers and administration to bring about any significant modification. Just by adopting the translation method, pupils are taught Arabic which is extremely detrimental for learning.
          These books are really great and I am sure you will really love the language as you finish reading chapter by chapter.
          I would suggest if you can buy the hard copies of the main course books, it will be more helpful to you.
          Check if the Books are available in your place. It must be available as the books are extremely popular the world over.
          Thank you so much. Jazakallaahu Khayra.

  4. Subhanallah… The Quran is a miracle in itself. One who truly understands the deeper meaning of the Quran has attained such wisdom. Just the Opening Surah alone has so many attributes, so much benefit for us it really is amazing.

    • Subhanallaah! The glorious Qur’an is the perfect Word of Allah.
      True understanding of the Qur’an’s wisdom happens only when a person puts the teachings into practice.
      May Allah give us the Tawfeeq to understand His Book and live by His guidance.

  5. Assalam o alikum warahmatuLLAHI wa barakatuhu!
    jazakALLAHU khairan for the post akhi.
    If you don’t mind i want to ask a question someone asked me.
    There was a sentence in an arabic book.
    Alamu bakistana akhdr.
    So the question was, why is it “bakistanA”, and not “bakistani” (as it is mudhaf ilaihi , which is thought to be majrur)
    similarly there was “shahru ranadanA mubarakun” , again the same question, why ramadan is not majrur , when it is becoming the mudhaf ilaihi.
    I was searching someone to get the answer. Hopefully you will

    P.S The theme of our blog was changed, so again the blogi blogi is in menus. AlhumduliLLAH.

    • Wa alaikumus salam wa Rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.
      1. It happens in case of non-Arabic words used. It will not carry kasra as normally it should. That is why it is ‘Alamu baakistaanA….’ because Pakistan is not an Arabic word. If you want to refer to Qur’an see Surah Yuusuf لَّقَدْ كَانَ فِي يُوسُفَ ayah no. 7, it is Laqad Kana Fee YusufA, not Yusufi….because Yusuf is originally not an Arabic word.
      2. The second one is completely about the grammar in which there is a thing called Mamnu minas sarf, in which the fat’ha will be written instead of kasra ….that is why in Surah al Baqarah 2: 185, it is ‘Sharu ramadhaanA…’
      3. I must accept I am not a scholar of Arabic though I know a little bit here and there, alhamdulillah.
      4. Yes, I saw your blog’s theme and it is much better than the previous one, Mashaa’Allah. I was wondering how you included that categories, tags, archives….all in one row. It is so nice in appearance. What is the name of that widget?

      Comment by MuQeet | August 29, 2013 | Reply

      • jazakALLAHU khaira akhi for the description. ! it’s cleared , but can you please tell me some detail for mamnu minas sarf? or refer to a site where i can read this usul.

        Plus that widget you are talking about is actually the theme’s widget. (only available in The Mystique Theme). (mystique tabbed widget)

        JazakALLAHU khaira once again for the help and support.
        You are not a scholar , but your Arabic much much more good than me. ma sha ALLAH
