Arabic grammar in simple terms

Arabic grammar – also known as “al-nahw النحو ” – is the science that researches and extrapolates the speech of the Arabs in a way that makes the speaker learn their words and follow their example.

In the early days, people used to learn a language from their ancestors by listening to and emulating them. But civilizations evolved and new people wanted to learn different languages to communicate efficiently.

That’s the reason early scholars established grammar to define the rules of the syntax of a language so new people could learn it easily.

Early Arabic scholars defined Arabic grammar as the science that depends on following the approach of The words of the Arabs in their behavior in terms of parsing or inflection; such as similes, plurals, disparagement, cracking, additions, lineage, composition, and so on.

Studying Arabic grammar will make you understand the source of the words and how they are formulated into different sentences. And the more you learn the better you’ll comprehend Arabic text.

Why you should learn Arabic grammar?

There is a very interesting story of how Arabic Grammar was established as the science we know today which happened in the time of the fourth of The Rightly-Guided Caliphs of the Islamic nation – Ali Ibn Abi Talib.

One of his students – Abu Al Aswad Al Duali – saw someone reciting the Quran incorrectly, he corrected him and went to Ali Ibn Abi Talib – May Allah be pleased with him –  to inform him about that.

Our master Ali Ibn Abi Talib ( RA ) taught his student how to formulate the Arabic language rules and syntax they already knew. Then he ordered him to follow the same path to make simple and clear rules for the people to read the Quran and learn Arabic.

Many non-Arab people converted to Islam during the era of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs, they wanted to learn to read and understand the Quran and Sunnah.

That resulted in people making mistakes especially while reciting the Quran. that’s why our Master Omar Ibn Khattab – May Allah be pleased with him – instructed new Muslims to learn the Quran with the help of someone who is competent in Arabic.

All of the above summarizes the importance of learning Arabic Grammar. Without understanding it you won’t be able to fully understand any sophisticated Arabic text.

Remember, Arabic is the language of the Quran, the one that Allah ( SWT ) chose to convey his final message to humankind, so learning Arabic will help you understand that massage and follow it according to the teachings of the prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

That’s why not just anyone who is interested in learning Arabic should learn grammar, but every Muslim should learn Arabic grammar.
