And if your Lord had willed, He could have made mankind one community; but they will not cease to differ. (Hud, Ayah 118)
Therefore, we will remain in different communities, speaking different languages. However, we have to learn Arabic language as the Quran is sent down to us in Arabic language.
Translations help us grasp an understanding of the Quran and Hadith. Nevertheless, translations are not equal to the real meaning of the words of Allah.
Knowing Arabic will help you concentrate and increase devotion in worship, inshaAllah. Especially when you recite the Quran and pray five daily prayers.
Umar (RA) instructed us to learn Arabic. He said, “Learn Arabic for it is part of your Religion and learn how the estate of the deceased should be divided for these are part of your Religion.”
Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Jibreen was asked; Is it obligatory for non-Arabs to learn Arabic?
He replied saying: They have to learn as much as they need for Islamic purposes, how to pronounce the words and what they mean, such as the Takbeer, al-Faatihah and al-Tasbeehaat – those that are obligatory in the prayer and for other duties.
