For Understanding Al-Qur'an


First get to know

How many words are there? How fast can the human brain learn new words? How many days will it take?

In the MUSHAF from Madinah, (or the one used by those who memorize the Quran)
Pages in the Mus-haf

600 Lines per page 15 Words per Line 9 Total Words in every page 130 Total Words (130 x 600) 78,000
Approximately

In the MUSHAF from Madinah, (or the one used by those who memorize the Quran)
Non-repeated Words Unique words

A p p r o x i m a t e l y

Easy to Learn!
Allah says, Verily We have made Al-Qur'an

EASY to understand and remember

So the suggestion that Al-Qur'an is difficult

is from shaitan! Even in your thoughts, NEVER agree with it and NEVER say it.

Do we want to contradict what Allah says in

the Quran? (May Allah forgive us!)

Easy to Learn!
Allah has made His Al-Qur'an easy for us

in many wonderful ways. For example,

The words of Surah Fatihah are repeated


7500 times in Al-Qur'an!
9

Easy to Learn: Step 1


Words (and their derivatives) from Salaah

the Surah Fatiha, 6 often used small surahs, the usual dhikr words and 4 usual duaas are found 40,000 times in the Quraan.

This means 50% of the words or every 2nd

word in the Quraan is from DAILY Salaah!

That is the content of our Short Course-1

Easy to Learn: Step 2


Additional Recitations

Repetition / Reinforcement Opportunity on Every Page of Al-Qur'an!

New Words per page

: 20 TOTAL words per page : 130 Repeated words : 110 Therefore, each page ensure enough revision of the words that have learnt earlier!!!

14

Human Brain Capacity???


New Words memorizable per Day

The Secret of this Capacity

: 15 : Repetition

Repetition ensures that the learnt words get stored in the PERMANENT MEMORY of the brain

15

The Problem is NOT Time or Effort, It is just your Attitude , your Thought!
Make it a Part of your Daily Routine Life. Like you eat 3 times and drink water 5-6 times.

When you want to memorize the meaning of new words, follow the Sunnah of Allah (for memorizing because that is the way He designed the brain).

For this, adopt 2 main aids: Vocabulary sheets & Posters Friends (to help you and team up with)
17

Just 200 hours!


To understand Al-Quran, you need 200 Hours!

(20 hours for the 2 short courses + 6 hours for each of the 30 Juzu/Paarah)

Start A.S.A.P. (As Soon As Possible)

When you have any way decided to learn, Why Delay?

18

Duaa
May Allah (Sub-hanahu wa Ta-aalah) help us to:

Understanding Quran vs. Learning Arabic Language


3 Major Differences in our approach
27
27

No. 1: Smooth Start


Start from Salah (Why use any other text,

for Quran) If I want to teach you French and if I know that you speak something in French for 1 hour, I will say: Learn that first! A common sense approach Valid for every Muslim man, woman, old, and young, and even for a child
28

28

No. 2: Focus on Listening and Reading


Language Understanding Learning Quran Reception Listening Reading Production Speaking Writing


-X-X-

29

No. 3: More Focus on Vocabulary


More focus on Vocabulary (just the way a child

learns) Less focus on grammar; otherwise if we teach the way shown below, people will run away!
