Dr. Pasha’s Arabic Language and Cultural Immersion Sessions -- Lesson 42


  1. Read Surah Ar-Rahman: 1-14. Do so aloud and multiple times.
  1. Use Arabic-English Dictionary to check out vocabulary.
  1. Or simply read Translations.
  1. If you can, memorize those Aayaat: 1-14.
  1. While Translations are almost indispensable at this present juncture in our history, Transliterations for Tilaawat Purposes are, in my view, Haram.
  1. My General Theory of Languages: All translations are paraphrases, and they are mostly off the mark. 
  1. As a result, all translations must be taken to come with a Margin of Error. Or, alternatively, with a Band of Uncertainty and Doubt surrounding them.
  1. Read up, and study, following Aayats:

    8.a. Innahum Fityatun Aamanoo Birabbihim…
    8.b. Walladheena Jaahadoo Feena La-Nahdiyannahum Subulana.
    8.c. Innalladheena Qaaloo Rabbunallahu Thummastaqaamoo…

  1. Study following Divine Scale of Miracles:

    9.a. Ittaqullaha Haqqa Tuqaatihi.
    9.b. Ittaqullaha Mastata’tum

  1. Study following Aayah:

    Wa La Nabluwannakum Bi-Shayi-in Minal Khawufi Wal Joo-i…

  1. Attack your Nafs and bury it.
  1. Go after your Hawaa and bury it.
  1. Learning Qur’an is a matter for your Ruh to deal with, and not a domain for your Intellect to juggle or wrestle with.
  1. Prepare your Ruh to behold the Cavalcade of Miracles unfolding before you in the Qur’an.
  1. A Miracle for our purposes is an Event of Smallest Possible Probability. Least Likely Event. An Event Unusual to the point of being Almost Not Possible.
