 "إِنَّآ أَنزَلۡنَـٰهُ قُرۡءَٲنًا عَرَبِيًّا لَّعَلَّكُمۡ تَعۡقِلُونَ"


 ""Lo! We have revealed it, a Lecture in Arabic, that ye may understand"" (2.Sura Yousuf) 



Shaikh/Dr. Yousef Al-Shehabi

We envision the birth of an institution that can help in the revival of Islamic education using the Arabic language, walking along the path of Bukhari and Muslim and the majority of Muslim scholars who do not come from an Arabic background. Muslim scholars knew that they cannot learn Islam without learning Arabic. It is a religious duty and a practical matter to excel in Arabic to taste the fruits of Islamic knowledge. 

Allah, all praise be to him, chose the Arabic language over the languages of the world. Every Muslim should learn Arabic to understand the words of Allah and his messenger. Without the Arabic language, the Quran cannot be fully understood. The vast Islamic literature and legacy is All in Arabic. It is a passion and a duty in front of Allah SW to work hard to bring Arabic to the tongue of every Muslim. Islamic knowledge can thrive only through the Arabic language.

This passion needs to be carried forward and the work should continue. Muslims through out the history studied Islam in Arabic and Arabic thrived, hence Muslims thrived. To help in this process Alqarawiyyeen was founded. We ask Allah SW to bless our work.
