Walaikumsalam dear brother,

 

I think this is a fantastic idea. Ramadhan can be a time where we look within and increase our understanding and comprehension and spirituality, and what better way than to increase our knowledge?

 

I will also join you in this, though i may not be able to do one book a day.

 

May Allah swt bless you and all muslims, shias or sunni's around the world this ramadhan.

 

inshAllah

عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ تَعَلَّمُوا الْعَرَبِيَّةَ فَإِنَّهَا كَلَامُ اللَّهِ الَّذِي كَلَّمَ بِهِ خَلْقَه

Imam al-Sadiq (‘a) has said: “Learn Arabic, for it is the language of Allah, which He spoke to His creation with.”

The reason for this project was that I own hundreds of books and felt that it was an injustice to not share them in someway, thus I decided to review some of them. I obviously don't read them in one day  :) , anyone who could do such would have a super-power of sorts.

 

Anyways both nights 8 and 9 deal with books on Wahhabism.

And may Allah bless you with this great idea :). I'm just wondering how fast you can read a whole book in one day? I can only read maximum of 20 pages/hour depending of the book font size. But if I have to read like 300 page long book, I'm not able to do it in one day. Could you share how you do it?

He doesn't read them in one day , he's read them before but is now making these videos with the purpose of reviewing the past books he has read , so he is reviewing one book each night not reading them , I think it's kind of highly unlikely that somebody would actually read these books in one sitting cos they take some time to take the information in.

If I could read 300 page books in one sitting I'd be a super-human, which I wish I were. But there is a thing called speed-reading, I urge you to look into it. They teach courses on it at most universities as well as online.

Yes, thank you for clarifying it to him. :)

A must-have book especially for the nights of Qadr.

Brother , in the arabic dictionary video , you spoke about it being essential. Did you learn arabic yourself, and if so, how long did it take?

 

JazakAllah

 

Salaam,

 

Yes I have learned Arabic but I am no expert, my speaking ability is not mentionable at all but my reading comprehension is quite good. I studied Arabic for 2-3 years as an under-grad and it is a requirement for my post-grad studies, I won't be able to complete my degree in Islamic Studies with be proficient in Arabic.

 

However prior to formally studying Arabic I used the free pdf's of Madina Books to learn basic Arabic vocabulary, grammar, etc. When I visited Najaf al-Ashraf I audited a class for western beginners and they too were using the Madina Books.

 

However no matter how much Arabic you study, if living in the west, you will never be able to master it. You'll need to move to an Arab speaking country and study there, which I inshaAllah plan on doing.
