The answers on Hawramani.com are based on the research of Ikram Hawramani in the Quran, hadith, scholarly works and respected fatwa sources. You can
view Ikram Hawramani's credentials
on the about page. Please note that we do not issue fatwas, we only compile the opinions
of respected scholars (even when a fatwa is not explicitly cited) to make their opinions accessible to English-speaking Muslims. If an answer does not
cite fatwas, please feel free to leave a comment asking for a fatwa citation and we will update the answer as soon as possible to include fatwas.
Hi, I am 20yo I don’t know how to read Arabic, and cannot read Quran in Arabic. But I do read it in English translation. Do you think it is necessary for a Muslim to learn to read Arabic? Should I start learning as well? I’ve tried earlier but I find it very difficult.
The majority of the world’s Muslims do not actually speak or read Arabic. But if you have the ability and free time to learn it, then that is a good thing and will increase your ability to progress in your faith. You can take it easy and start with simple courses for beginners, or watch Arabic cartoons or TV shows (I learned Arabic from cartoons as a child–Arabic is my 4th language).
And God knows best.
