authoobillah! not auzoobillah


Why oh why do we have a generation of Muslims who are teaching Quran in an incorrect way.  When I started practicing Islam it didn’t take much convincing for me to understand that if the Quran was revealed in Arabic then it should be learnt in the same way.

If that be the case then why do I see a large majority of Pakistani muslims saying:

  • alif baa thee saa instead of alif baa taa thaa

I ran 2 madrasahs for a couple of years, and often came across a lot of students who wanted to unlearn what they had been taught.

Its a shame because it often resulted in them relearning from juz amma.

And of course there is al fatiha where the children have to unlearn ‘sirathula zina’ instead of ‘siratula theena’, This dua is vital to our guidance on the straight path rather than asking to be guided to the path of ‘zina’ if prounounced incorrectly.

My point is we have to acknowledge the Quran was revealed in arabic, so why learn it in any other way???
