Dr. Pasha's Arabic Language and Cultural Immersion Sessions -- Unlike Any
This is a simple lesson. No more than one or maybe two or even three points.
First, if you are serious about learning the Arabic Language, which is the Language of Allah and the Language of Qur'an and Hadith, you need to form the words clearly with your mouth and then actually say them loud and clear.
That means you need to Verbalize everything. Pronounce every individual letter distinctly. You need to say the words loud and clear. And cannot be shy or coy or fearful or hesitant or tentative about it.
Otherwise, you may never really learn Arabic.
Next, Arabic and most other things of that nature are learnt through Repetition. Repeating things over and over and over gets those things set in your mind.
Then slowly you begin to master them.
That is how children are taught to do Hifz of Qur'an: Memorization of Qur'an, which is one of the greatest Empirical Miracles that happens round the clock in our world, even as we write or read or learn this lesson.
Empirical means things happening in the real world. Things that you can see with your own eyes. Millions of children commit the entire Qur'an to Memory every day, month and year, a process that goes on round the clock.
And there is nothing else like it in the world. That is the reason I am calling it a Miracle -- a real, living, ongoing, perpetual Miracle.
Finally, you need to Repeat Things endlessly. By doing that, you will reach a threshold when all of a sudden you will find that the thing you are repeating is now set in your mind.
And then the more you Repeat it beyond that, the stronger and more firmly it will be embedded in your mind.
Let me Repeat:
Memorization of the Qur'an, either in full, or in part, by hundreds upon hundreds of millions of Muslims around the world is one of the greatest Living, Ongoing Miracles that this world is witness to.
That alone should make the strongest and most inveterate Skeptics among us sit up and take notice, and realize that this Qur'an is not like any other written document of any kind in this world.
And that it is a most powerful argument that this Qur'an cannot possibly be of Human Creation but must have a Divine Origin.
