A Brief Summary of Qur’anic Grammar: Sarf and Nahw
This book briefly covers the basics of Qur’anic Grammar. It covers the nouns, verbs, and particles. It goes into detail about conjunction (additive) waaw, faa, and other particles, rules, and unique features for sentences, verbs, and preposition combinations. I have also added the Top 300 nouns and verbs and most used particles along with an analysis of two ayahs of Surah An’aam with Sarf analysis and Nahw charts to show how it is approached.
This book is for people who need a refresher (revision of basics) and may be helpful to those beginning to learn Arabic Grammar, and advanced tips and unique points in classical Arabic solely for understanding the Qur’an, the book of Guidance for humanity. It is assumed here that you have some idea about Arabic Grammar.
Al-Qur’an is a book of knowledge and wisdom. This is where our creator is telling us how to live our lives. We recite parts of it in our prayers. Understanding what we are reciting in our salah is critical. We need to learn enough Arabic to understand what our Creator is saying and to practice it. We don’t have to be an Arabic or Qur’an scholars but need to know enough to understand the only connection we have with Allah SWT.
Messenger of Allah, Peace be upon him said: Learn Arabic for three reasons, It is my language, it is the language of Qur’an and it is the language of the people of Jannah. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala chose Arabic for His final Revelation.
Imaam Shaafa’i Razi Allahu anhu said that knowledge is what is important, not what you memorize.
Learning Arabic will also help us understand the traditions (ahadith) which is the second most important part of our faith after the Qur’an. Messenger of Allah alaihi assalatu wassalam also said: I am leaving you two things which if you hold on to, you will never be defeated and destroyed, the Qur’an and my traditions.
