as salam alaikum sisters,
As you all know reading Qur'an in arabic is ideal. For those who are native Arabic speakers this is a given, but for us non-native Arabic speakers it can be a struggle. So, should we just give up and only read the english approximations? Absolutely not! Allah, swt, tells us that we are given reward for each arabic letter we read of the Qur'an and IF we experience difficulty, we will get extra rewards. How merciful and gracious our Lord is.
So, lets take this systematically. First, lets learn the alphabet. The very beginning, what is the name of each letter, and lets come up with some unique descriptions of that letter, to help us remember it's name. We won't worry about the sound or how they join at this point, just their name.
There are 28 arabic letters, so lets try between this month and next month, to go through them one by one. No rush, but what is important is that we try our best to learn and remember them.
Isa, each letter will have it's own post, so that, we can follow up with our comments, and to make it easy for review. Isa, our Arabic speaking sisters can help us with their insights and comments.
