ALLAH is the creator of universe. He created us. He educated mankind from the beginning of humanity. Adam was the first chosen apostle and surely, without any doubt, Muhammad (S.A.A.W) was the last and final Prophet. Quran was the last and completed edition of syllabus for the whole mankind.
And hence indeed we made the Qur’an easy to bear in mind, , who,then,is willing to take it to heart ?
(Quran 54/17,ALLAMA MUHAMMAD ASAD.)
Since my childhood, I was told that the Quran is the book of Muslims.only. but when i grew up and read it carefully, i found in the default arrangement of Quran, the very first address by Almighty Allah, it was for whole humanity, not just for Muslims only. ALLAH says, in verse 21, surah 2, al-baqara(THE COW),
“O MANKIND! Worship your Sustainer, who has created you and those who lived before you, so that you might remain conscious of Him.(MUHAMMAD ASAD).
Quran is a book revealed, not just for mare reading. It was revealed to be act upon. For acting upon it, we must understand it. There is an obstacle in understanding Quran that is its language. Every one is not Arabic. Many sincere scholars wrote many translations of Quran. Up to some extent those translations are helpful so much so a reader could have the knowledge of Quran. But readers still remain unable to understand Quran due to the language barrier.
There were some other passionate scholars started teaching language of Quran. But unfortunately and frankly speaking very unnaturally they start teaching grammar instead of language of Quran. It is a very hard and boring task for someone interested to learn Quran, The Word of God. They do not need to master day to day Arabic language but small-set of Arabic which is constant forever and is used in the Quran.
- A child learns his mother language first through by sounds then words, vocabulary then he learns sentences. Then he keeps on learning the life time without considering the grammatical complications.
- An uneducated person or less educated person settled in English speaking country can speak fluent English as compare to an MA in English living in non English speaking country. The reason being former learns English from environment and speaks without hesitation and the later MA English struck in considering in construction of the sentence regarding grammar and composition during English conversation. His focus is more own rules on language. But not on the language.
Neither a child in (1stexample) nor a grown up in (2nd example) learned grammar to speak a non native language. Both speak and understand the new language they learned. It is of no environment whether they know grammar working behind this language or they don’t know.
What is important is that they should learn vocabulary and sentences with their proper meaning and right translation and must use those words and vocabulary in their day to day language.
No doubt, Arabic is a very vast and rich language. But we must not confused the leaning of grammar with the understanding of Quran.
Quran itself is a complete full fledge version of Arabic in its final shape. Languages grow alter and mix with each other. But since the Quran was revealed the language inside this scripture static, constant and unchangeable. So if we learn the whole vocabulary of Quran from the first word of the Quran with the same arrangement of the verses (sentences), rakoo (paragraph), Surah (Chaper) .
Quran, in its defaults order, has amazing support of learning the language of quran directly and hence loosing getting free form the dependence on unnecessary support of translation
Total vocabulary of the Quran is less than 80000 words. This 80000 words made up of almost about 3000 words. It means if we count each and every single word used in Quran just once total vocabulary of the Quran is not more than 3000 words.
50% of the vocabulary of the Quran that is 1500 is already been applied in urdu, been spoken and understood in same meaning and consent. The rest of 1500 words are not familiar and these 1500 words are actually to be leaned by the students through our simple and easy method.
First to Surah (chapters) Surah Fatiha and Surah Baqara constitute 1/3 of the vocabulary of the Quran that is almost 1000. Which becomes two and half paras (volumes) and remaining 66% that is almost 2000 words constitute in 27.5 paras which becomes 112 Surha (Chapters). It means more you go ahead the lesser new words will come to your knowledge otherwise previously learned words will be repeated time and again along with there few new words.
The para 21 has only 21 new words. More the 2500 words were the same being learned and used time and again in the previous 21 para.
If a persons learns the meaning of first two chapters, he can learn the 1/3 of the Quran and a person who has completely learned first 20 chapters, he can easily understand chapter 21 without preparation and with a maximum risk of 21 errors. The result will be 99% without leaning new words.

Our Class Method
In front of Students:
Our Method of teaching and learning Quran is very simple. A person can teach his/her families/staff/students/neighbors and fellows. Any one can become a teacher just holding a Quran in his hand. In his students sit before him with a Quran without translation. A translation in the hand of teacher The teacher will take one word from Quran and repeat it translation time and again, then he move towards next word and so on. After completing one verse word by word with translation the teacher will encourage and induce the students to repeat the lesson in before the class in the same way of word by word with translation. It is recommended that well prepared student should read the lesson first of all before the class and then lesser. So that least prepared person or person with low confidence/shy could listen this repetition which help him to memories each word with translation. The volunteer are always welcome and shy should be persuaded.
This class can be started from any number of students. We hope and expect from the parents to teach their children, bosses to their staff, teacher to their students, neighbors to other neighbors youngers to their elders and children to their parents.
