Qur'an for All
Let this course be the first step for
you to experience the Qur'an
As Muslims, all of us possess a profound desire to understand the
Qur’an. However, since the Qur’an is in Arabic most of us are unable to grasp
its meanings. Learning Arabic of course may not be easy for everyone though it
is highly recommended for all those who can.
This course has been designed to facilitate direct understanding
of the Qur’an for people who can read the Qur'an but who have no knowledge of
The course is primarily based on identifying certain
portions of the vocabulary of the Qur’an and then using this vocabulary to
translate and understand the Qur’anic verses.
This vocabulary of the Qur’an, one should know, primarily consists
of three basic components: the Noun, the Verb,
the Particle. A colour scheme shall be followed in this course
both in the Arabic text and the translated one. This is as follows:
A software has been developed on the basis
of this methodology.
Using the Software
Click Learn and the vocabulary of the verse/verse
portion to be translated shall be displayed before you in the form of a Book
Click on the meaning of an Arabic word found on the Book Page
and then click to place it below the same Arabic word found in the table. This
will place the meaning of the Arabic word below the word. A voice will
pronounce the words.
Repeat this procedure with all the words found in the Book Page.
The software will then automatically re-arrange the translated
words in the same order as they occur in the verse/verse portion. The result in
most cases would be a scrambled sentence. In some cases, the sentence would be
already be meaningful, in which case just type it in the forth line.
If the result is a scrambled sentence, then use your common
sense to make it meaningful by typing out in the third line what you think is
the sense that is being conveyed. For this you can add words and/or re-arrange
the words of the scrambled sentence. While unscrambling a sentence, always
click the Previous button, which will display the translation
of the previous verses. This will help you in unscrambling the sentence by
keeping you in touch with the flow and context. In some verses/ verse portions,
the Hint button will automatically appear activated, in which
case click it to make use of the hint.
Once, you have made a meaningful translation, press the Save
button. You will then be provided with one possible translation of the given
verse/ verse portion so that you can compare your attempt with it.
Go on to the next verse/
verse portion by clicking on the Right Arrow button.
To come back to a previously
solved verse/ verse portion just click the Left Arrow button.
To re-attempt a previously solved verse/ verse portion go to that verse and
click the Unsave button.
