  6. A History of the Arabic Language: Introduction

    The saying usually goes “like father like son”. However, in the case of Abraham and Ishmael it should be “like son like father”. In the Qur’an, their names are written as ʾIsmāʿīl (إسماعيل) and ʾIbrāhīm (إبراهيم). It seems rather banal to those of us used to reading these names, it is an etymological peculiarity. In the original Hebrew, these names are Yišmaʿel (יִשְׁמָעֵאל‎), meaning “God Heard”, and ʾAbrāhām (אַבְרָהָם), meaning “Father of Nations”. While Yišmaʿel is Arabicized typically from Hebrew, ʾAbrāhām is not. The initial alef is pronounced with a kasrah in the Arabic rather than a fatḥah like in the Hebrew. More notably, the final alef becomes a yāʾ in the Arabic. This has even confused Muslim philologists who have listed such variants of the name as ʾAbrahām, ʾAbrāhum, and ʾAbraham. The philologist and orientalist, Arthur Jeffrey, in his “The Foreign Vocabulary of the Qur’an”, records several theories as to why this might be the case concluding that the best possibility is that ʾIbrāhīm was put onto the same pattern as ʾIsmāʿīl’s name when being Arabicized – something the Qur’an has done with other names. Though it seems semantical, it is relevant to understanding the style of the Qur’an. This topic and others like it have to do with the history of Arabic, which, like the history of any language, is important in providing context to linguistic phenomena, and consequently better cementing our understanding of the Qur’anic text. While great efforts are made by Muslims to have mastery over Arabic grammar, there seems to be a gap in our collective understanding of this topic. Arabic is now a global language spoken by 290 million native speakers found from Morocco to Khuzestan and Central Asia, and it is used as a liturgical language by over a billion people. In the 9th-century BC, though, it was an obscure Semitic language spoken by an equally obscure ethnic group of nomadic herders and mercenaries from the South Syrian desert. As such, I intend on writing a series of brief blog posts, which will give an overview of the history of the Arabic language. In due course, we shall also examine interesting features of and notable oddities in the language, such as the one I mentioned at the beginning of my introduction. These posts will not necessarily be chronological so that the task of writing is easier. Since a language exists only due to people being there to speak it, I will also be writing general points about the history of the Arab people. This will not be comprehensive, rather, it will simply complement our primary discussion on the Arabic language. I hope that by reading this series you will grow to love the subject as much as I do, and by its completion, have deepened your knowledge of the Arabic language and the Qur’an.

My only problem is that I don't know how the education system for Iraq's high school work and how many subjects they have and what kind of subjects. Also, is the education good there?

  11. Allah

    Allah, is an Arabic word, is the unique name of God.( knowingTujweed( Muslims prefer to use Allah rather than God. Allah is the only God, all-powerful and all-knowing creator, sustainer, ordainer and judge of the universe. He is unique (wahid) and inherently one (ahad), all-merciful and omnipotent. Allah says in Al Quran about him: (O Esteemed Messenger!) Proclaim: ‘He is Allah, Who is the One. Allah is the Transcendent of all, the Protector and Far-Superior to all. He has not begotten any, nor is He begotten. Nor is there anyone equal to Him.’ (Al Quran 112: 1-4) It is the fundamental belief of the Muslims that Allah does not resemble anything. He does not have body, face, hands, legs or any other parts. But He sees without the eyes. He hears without the ears. He exists without a place.“Teaching Islamic Studies” According to the Al Quran, "No vision can grasp Him, but His grasp is over all vision. God is above all comprehension, yet is acquainted with all things" (Al Quran 6:103) Muslims believe that Allah created whole universe and the creature by his sheer command “Kun” means “Be”. According to the Al Quran, “(He is the) Originator of the heavens and the earth. When He decides a matter, He simply says to it: “Be”, and it comes to be.” (Al Quran 2: 117) Further Allah says that the purpose of human creation is to worship him. “I did not create the Jinns and the human beings except for the purpose that they should worship Me.”“Online Quran Teaching” (Al Quran 51: 56) “Online Arabic Teaching” There are 99 Names of Allah which is called as “al hasma al husnaa” means "The beautiful names". Each of which evoke a distinct characteristic of Allah. All these names refer to Allah, the supreme and all-comprehensive divine name. Among the 99 names of God, the most famous and most frequent of these names are "the Merciful" (ar-raḥman) and "the Compassionate" (ar-raḥim).

  12. Sahabah

    COMPANIONS OF PROPHET ﷺ) In Islam, the Sahāba were the companions of the Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). This form is plural, the singular is Sahābi, which is Arabic for "friend, companion." Definitions of Companion Anyone who saw Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) in his lifetime, believed in his teachings, and died as a Muslim to be a Companion or Ṣahābi. Lists of prominent Companions usually run to fifty or sixty names, being the people most closely associated with Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). It was important to identify the Companions because later scholars accepted their testimony (the hadith, or traditions) as to the words and deeds of Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), the occasions on which the Qur'an was revealed, and various important matters of Islamic history and practice (sunnah). The testimony of the Companions, as it was passed down through chains of trusted narrators (isnads), was the basis of the developing Islamic tradition. Other links in the chain of isnad Because the hadith were not written down until many years after the death of Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), the isnads, or chains of transmission, always have several links. The first link is preferably a Companion, who had direct contact with Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). The Companion then related the tradition to a taba'een, the companion of the Companion. Taba'een had no direct contact with Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), but did have direct contact with the Ṣahāba. The tradition then would have been passed from the taba'een to the tabataba'een, the third link. The second and third links in the chain of transmission were also of great interest to Muslim scholars, who treated of them in biographical dictionaries and evaluated them for bias and reliability. Views of the companions According to Sunni scholars, people of the past should be considered Companions if they had any kind of contact with Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). If they saw him, heard him, or were in his presence even briefly, they are Companions. Blind people are considered Companions even if they could not see Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). Infants who could not remember their contact with Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) are still considered Companions. Even unlearned and unobservant Muslims are considered Companions. However, anyone who died after rejecting Islam and becoming an apostate is not considered a Companion. Sunni Muslim scholars classified Companions into many categories, based on a number of criteria. Imam Suyuti recognized eleven levels of Companionship. However, all Companions are considered just (udul); that is, Sunni scholars do not believe that Companions would lie or fabricate hadith.

  13. Baby Girl Names

    Salamun Alaykum brothers and sisters, My wife is expecting our second child, and I have put in many hours thinking of names. The ultrasound shows it may be a girl "most likely". My wife is totally unsure of what to name her, infact she has also thought of many names however she just seems like she is overwhelmed at the moment with the pregnancy so I try and help make suggestions and usually we build from whatever she likes. We named our first child (daughter) Kawthar. So far we have shortened the long list down to a few choices given that my wife is in her 8th month. For arguments sake we have settled on girls names for the time being and if it is a boy we have a few suitable names we like. If our child is a girl we like: 1. BILQIS (The Queen of Sheba) mentioned in the Quran in Surah An-Naml 2. YAQEEN meaning certainty, lack of doubt, belief, faith. This choice seems more like a boys name but I wanted to hear input I guess of what everyone thinks. I personally think Yaqeen can be a unisex name like safa or noor. *Let me know what you think about this* 3. IZDIHAR meaning blossoming, derives from ZAHRA. 4. TASNIM meaning fountain or spring in paradise i Surah Al-Mutaffifin Please let me know what you all think. Also, we are open to suggestions. JazakumAllah Khair. H.
  14. Assalamu 'alaikum, Can somebody help with how to read this word and similar ones (only the two letters in the beginning). When I'm reading Quran I'm always so confused which letter i should read first and which one should have a kasra' and which one a dhamma (I hope you understand what I mean). It's a yaa and a kha right?? but which one should be said first and how do you see which letter the dhamma and the fatha is for
  15. Online Study

    السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته I am willing to teach Arabic to a class of extremely dedicated students over a course of 2 weeks. This is to prepare them for further studies in Islamic Sciences. The students may or may not be taught at the same time, but I will make time for each one. This is a project I would like to work on to inspire those who wish to educate themselves. What I expect: * Online availability via Skype/ Facebook. * Commit to 8-10 hours of self-study a week/ over 2 weeks. * Proficiency in English writing and an academic mindset. * Interest and commitment to apply the skills learnt from the Arabic course to future courses (the courses will increase in duration). If anyone is interested or has further questions please PM me before 1st November. I can manage only 5 students based on dedication and commitment. بارك الله فيكم

  18. Salam, Is the translation of this correct? السلام عليك يابن سدرة المنتهي Peace be upon you, O son of the Ultimate Tree السلام عليك يابن زمزم والصفا Peace be upon you, O son of Zamzam and Safa and by ''O son of..'' they mean Imam Hussain (as) right?
  19. (salam) http://www.ziyaraat.net/findbook.asp Share links you know please.
  20. SA Does anyone know of an Arabic/Persian Imambargah/community center in Karachi, Pakistan? Or any place where Arabic/Persian aza might be conducted? Thank you!
  21. Salamun Alaykum! If I were to potentially create a Whatsapp group for people like me, who: -love Arabic Latimiya -do not always manage to understand them fully, how many of you would be willing to join? It would involve two kinds of people: 1. people like me, and 2. people who are fluent in Arabic and can help us! The first type of people would ask questions regarding meanings of words/phrases in Latimiyaat (not necessarily, but let's start there) and the second category would help with that. The group would aim not to waste anyone's time and so we would try and only ask questions we can't easily get translations of on the Internet. Who's in? (and do mention which category of people you'd fall under!) Thanks!
  22. What does فَضَّلنا mean

    Salam what does فَضَّلنا mean
  23. AOA, I'm confused on the meaning of the Arabic word Dahaha, its mentioned in the quran, some people say it means to spread out while others say it means to become egg shaped. Which one is correct? Especially in the context of the ayah (79:30). Or could both be true at the same time? 79:30: والارض بعد ذلك دحاها
