The Qurâ€™an is the word of Allah; a direct message from Allah to us His creation and Allah chose the Arabic language as the language of this message. Indeed Allah tells us this in the Qurâ€™an emphasizing to us that to understand the message in its fuller form one must understand the language:
â€œIndeed we have sent it down as an Arabic Qurâ€™an, in order that you may understandâ€ (Surah Yusuf, Aayah 2)
â€œAnd thus we have inspired to you an Arabic Qurâ€™an so that you may warn the mother of towns and all around itâ€ (Surah ash-Shura, 7)
Arabic and the message of the Qurâ€™an cannot be separated and translators throughout the ages have tried to convey to the non-Arabic speaking people the beauty of the meaning of the Qurâ€™an but have always called it â€˜The translation of the meaning of the Qurâ€™anâ€™, emphasising the fact that the Qurâ€™anâ€™s direct translation is not possible, because so much of the potency and splendour of the words and their meanings which are inextricably linked to the Arabic language are lost in English or any other language. Indeed to even appreciate the poetic beauty of the Qurâ€™an one needs to have an understanding of Arabic.
Remember that for the Arabs in the time of the Prophet (sallallaahu â€˜alaihi wa sallam) who were masters of eloquence and poetry, the words of the Qurâ€™an itself were so unique compared to the poetry of the most eloquent of them that many came to Islam recognising that the Qurâ€™an could not be the handiwork of even the best human poet, rather it could only come from Allah. The language itself was one of the miracles of the Qurâ€™an. Allah challenges mankind: [using large font size is not allowed]
