  2. The Quickest Way to the Quran: Lesson 1 There are 77430 words in the Quran, but it is said that the Quran has around 2000 (TWO THOUSAND) unique (unrepeated) words. Encouraged by "80% Words of the Quran" and "Quranic Arabic Corpus", I am trying to categorize those words in a way easily comprehensible to non-Native learners of Arabic. I think this is the quickest way to understanding Quran, because you need not try to understand Quran word by word……What you need is to group the basic vocabulary with simple examples. Today's lesson deals with Personal pronouns. In Quranic Arabic, the third and second person each is divided into Masculine and Feminine. Each masculine and Feminine is divided into Singular, Dual and Plural. The First Person is divided only into two – Singular and plural So we have total 14 Forms of Personal Pronoun (3rd P=6, 2nd P=6, 1st P=2) Frequency of the words is given in brackets 3rd Person Masculine 3Mas. Singular هُوَ (481) He : Example: قلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ Say: “He is God, the One,”. (Sura Ikhlas 112:1) هُوَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ لَكُمْ مَا فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا It is He who created for you all of that which is on the earth. (Sura Baqarah 2:29) 3Mas. Dual هُمَا They two The 3rd Person Dual forms are the same for Masculine and Feminine and occur 159 times in the Quran Example إِذْ هُمَا فِي الْغَارِ………. …. when they two were in the cave…….(Sura Tawbah 9:40) 3Mas Plural هُم They(M) The Third Person Masculine Plural as separate & joined occurs occur 3897 times according to Quranic corpus, but Zekr Quran Project traces 3896 occurrences. Example: وَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ And it is they who are the successful (Sura Baqarah 2:5) . وَلَهُمْ فِيهَا أَزْوَاجٌ مُطَهَّرَةٌ وَهُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ ….. And they will have therein purified spouses, and they will abide therein eternally. (Sura Baqarah 2:25) 3rd Person Feminine 3P Fem. Singular هِيَ (64) She / it In most of the verses, هِيَ refers to objects, animals and matters that are considered feminine and translated as 'it / that' except in verse Sura Yusuf 12:26 قَالَ هِيَ رَاوَدَتْنِي عَنْ نَفْسِي [Joseph] said, "It was she who sought to seduce me." 3 Person Feminine Plural هن Hunna/hinna (207) They (F) Example هُنَّ لِبَاسٌ لَّكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ لِبَاسٌ لَّهُنَّ They are your garments and ye are their garments. (Baqarah 2:187) فِيهِنَّ قَاصِرَاتُ الطَّرْفِ لَمْ يَطْمِثْهُنَّ إِنسٌ قَبْلَهُمْ وَلَا جَانٌّ ﴿الرحمن: ٥٦﴾ In them will be (Maidens), chaste, restraining their glances, whom no man or Jinn before them has touched;-(Rahman 55:56) 2 Person Masculine 2P Masculine Singular انت Anta (81) You Example إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ الْعَلِيمُ الْحَكِيمُ .......Indeed, it is You who is the Knowing, the Wise. (Baqarah 2:32) رَبَّنَا تَقَبَّلْ مِنَّا إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ ......"Our Lord, accept [this] from us. Indeed You are the Hearing, the Knowing. (Baqarah 2:127) 2 Person Masculine Dual AntumaA You two / You both This pronoun occurs once in Quran in Verse 28:35 قَالَ سَنَشُدُّ عَضُدَكَ بِأَخِيكَ وَنَجْعَلُ لَكُمَا سُلْطَانًا فَلَا يَصِلُونَ إِلَيْكُمَا ۚ بِآيَاتِنَا أَنتُمَا وَمَنِ اتَّبَعَكُمَا الْغَالِبُونَ [٢٨:٣٥] He (Allah) said: "We will certainly strengthen thy arm through thy brother, and invest you both with authority, so they shall not be able to touch you: with Our Sign shall ye triumph,- you two as well as those who follow you." Sura: Al-Qasas 2 Person Masculine Plural انتم Antum (135) You (all) وَلَا أَنتُمْ عَابِدُونَ مَا أَعْبُدُ ﴿الكافرون: ٥﴾ Nor will you worship that which I worship. Sura Kafirun 109:5 وَأَنتُمْ حِينَئِذٍ تَنظُرُونَ ﴿الواقعة: ٨٤﴾ And you at the moment are looking on,(Al-Waqia 56:84) 2 Person Feminine Anti AntumaA Antunna do not occur separately in the Quran. 1 Person Singular انا anaA (68) I وَلَا أَنَا عَابِدٌ مَّا عَبَدتُّمْ ﴿الكافرون: ٤﴾ "And I shall not worship that which you are worshipping. Kafirun 109:4 And you at the moment are looking on,(Al-Waqia 56:84) فَقَالَ أَنَا رَبُّكُمُ الْأَعْلَىٰ ﴿النازعات: ٢٤﴾ He said, "I am your Lord, Most High". (Sura Naziat 79:24 وَإِنَّمَا أَنَا نَذِيرٌ مُّبِينٌ ﴿الملك: ٢٦﴾ .....I am (sent) only to warn plainly in public.(Mulk 67:26) 1 Person Plural نحن Nahnu (86) We إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا عَلَيْكَ الْقُرْآنَ تَنزِيلًا ﴿الانسان: ٢٣﴾ It is We Who have sent down the Qur'an to thee by stages. (76:23) بَلْ نَحْنُ مَحْرُومُونَ ﴿القلم: ٢٧﴾ "Indeed we are shut out (of the fruits of our labour)!" (68:27) For more Quranic Lessons, Visit My Blog The Quickest Way to the Quran

File selection dialogue box opens > Select the file "quranic-corpus-morphology-0.4" and click open / import. 3. The text import wizard opens up, 4> select Delimited and click next.> step 2 comes 5. Select Tab, click next. step 3 comes 6. select General , then click Finish 7. Click OK You will see the data well furnished.
  5. Alhamdu Lillah, the Quranic Arabic Corpus is a great resource for Learners and Researchers of the Quran all over the world. The author of this project Kais Dukes is distributing its Morphology Data free of cost. If you can learn how to analyse it, you will be able to extract many things of the Quran. The following discussion will guide you how to analyse the Quranic data. If you want to analyse Quranic Corpus, Download it from corpus.quran.com/download/, import the txt file into MS Access 2007/2010, Use Query option to get desired result although analysis based on FEATURES column is a little bit tricky. Before analyzing Quranic Arabic Corpus morphological data 0.4, you have to learn some terms of Corpus Linguistics. In linguistics, a morpheme is the smallest semantically meaningful unit in a language. The field of study dedicated to morphemes is called morphology. Morphemes are of two types: Free and Bound Morphemes. A morpheme (or word element) that can stand alone as a word is called Free. It is sometimes called stem, because other non-free elements are added ti it. In morphology, a bound morpheme is a morpheme that only appears as part of a larger word. They are sometimes called affixes. Affixes are three types: Prefix, Infix, Suffix Affixes (prefix, suffix, infix and circumfix) are all bound morphemes. Bound morphemes occur only before other morphemes.Examples: un- (uncover, undo) Infix Bound morphemes which are inserted into other morphemes. eg not found in English. But Food > Feed Suffixes are Bound morphemes which occur following other morphemes. Examples: -er (singer, performer) -ist (typist, pianist) -ly (manly, friendly) Quranic Arabic Corpus morphological data 0.4 includes these and other linguistic terms concerned. Let me explain a few Rows LOCATION is the Surah:Ayah:word:morpheme reference of the Quran. FORM is the English Transliteration of the surface Arabic Word form, which is based on Buckwalter Transliteration. See the chart: http://corpus.quran.com/java/buckwalter.jsp TAG is the lexical or grammatical category of the morpheme concerned. FEATURES describe the detailed linguistic features of the morpheme. Description of FEATURES In morphology and lexicography, a lemma (plural lemmas or lemmata) is the canonical form, dictionary form, or citation form of a set of words (headword). In English, for example, run, runs, ran and running are forms of the same lexeme, with run as the lemma. Lexeme, in this context, refers to the set of all the forms that have the same meaning, and lemma refers to the particular form that is chosen by convention to represent the lexeme. Difference between stem and lemma In computational linguistics, a stem is the part of the word that never changes even when morphologically inflected, whilst a lemma is the base form of the verb. For example, from "produced", the lemma is "produce", but the stem is "produc-." This is because there are words such as production. In linguistic analysis, the stem is defined more generally as the analyzed base form from which all inflected forms can be formed. For illustrations of Other Abbreviated Terms, Go to page http://corpus.quran.com/documentation/tagset.jsp For Verb Forms, Refer to page: http://corpus.quran.com/documentation/verbforms.jsp The First Word of Quran Bismi The First Word of Quran Bismi consists of two morphemes: bi which is used as prefix, and somi (don't think that the "o" in somi is like English "O", it is a symbol of 'sukun' according to Buckwalter Transliteration) is a noun; it is a stem; POS=Parts of Speech, N=Noun; its Lemma is {som (whwre hamzah is deleted for widespread use) which is derived from the triliteral ROOT smw ie س م و . It is a |M|masculine noun used here in Genitive case ie اضافة LOCATION FORM TAG FEATURES (1:1:1:1) bi P PREFIX|bi+ (1:1:1:2) somi N STEM|POS:N|LEM:{som|ROOT:smw|M|GEN The First Explicit Verb of the Quran The First Explicit Verb of the Quran is located in the 2nd word of the Fifth verse of First chapter Fatihah: (1:5:2:1) naEobudu V STEM|POS:V|IMPF|LEM:Eabada|ROOT:Ebd|1P This is an IMPERFECT Verb (Present-Future Tense)used in 1st Person Plural The Second Verb (1:5:4:1) nasotaEiynu V STEM|POS:V|IMPF|(X)|LEM:{sotaEiynu|ROOT:Ewn|1P This is also an IMPERFECT verb used in (X) Form and the ROOT is Ewn ie ع و ن How To Analyze: Download the txt file, copy and paste it to Excel 2007/2010 (Excel 2003 won't help) The rows and columns will be separated. Now the analysis depends on what you want out of the QAC. If you want to know how many prepositions are used i quran, you can do so by auto-filtering the TAG column: choose Data>Filter, from drop-down deselect 'Select all' and check P. You will get all prepositions used in the Quran. How many? Ok, in the last blank cell of Column C, write this formula =COUNTIF(C1:C128215, "P"), press ENTER, you will get 13006. Unfortunately, you will not get this stat from the site http://corpus.quran.com/morphologicalsearch.jsp You will get only 7679, here prepositions as stems are counted, not the prefixed and suffixed prepositions.There are 7679 stem prep, 5325 prefix prep and 2 suffix prep in Quran, so the total is 7679+5325+2= 13006. Sometimes Quranic Arabic Corpus morphological data 0.4 is very helpful for you to find specific Data. For example if you want to know The Past Passive Verbs used in the Quran, you can do that within seconds. Here is the list of Past Passive Verbs used in Quran. (Here FORM is the passive form, Go to ayat and check it) LOCATION FORM TAG (4:157:15:1) $ub~iha V (6:118:3:1) *ukira V (5:3:23:1) *ubiHa V (5:13:15:1) *uk~iru V (76:14:4:2) *ul~ilato V (2:283:16:1) {&otumina V (33:11:2:1) {botuliYa V (2:173:14:1) {DoTur~a V (14:26:6:1) {jotuv~ato V (7:75:8:1) {sotuDoEifu V (42:16:8:1) {sotujiyba V (5:44:17:1) {sotuHofiZu V (6:10:2:1) {sotuhozi}a V (2:166:4:1) {t~ubiEu V (11:110:5:2) {xotulifa V (54:9:9:2) {zodujira V (22:39:1:1) >u*ina V (2:24:12:1) >uEid~ato V (9:58:7:1) >uEoTu V (10:22:28:1) >uHiyTa V (2:187:1:1) >uHil~a V (4:128:18:2) >uHoDirati V (69:5:3:2) >uholiku V (4:25:36:1) >uHoSi V (77:12:3:1) >uj~ilato V (7:120:1:2) >uloqiYa V (4:60:21:1) >umiru V (18:56:17:1) >un*iru V (2:4:4:1) >unzila V (72:10:5:1) >uriyda V (4:91:13:1) >urokisu V (7:6:3:1) >urosila V (9:108:6:1) >us~isa V (2:25:25:2) >utu V (11:60:1:2) >utobiEu V (6:19:11:2) >uwHiYa V (7:43:33:1) >uwrivo V (8:70:18:1) >uxi*a V (2:246:40:1) >uxorijo V (2:93:15:2) >u$oribu V (6:70:34:1) >ubosilu V (3:185:14:2) >udoxila V (22:22:8:1) >uEiydu V (51:9:4:1) >ufika V (10:27:16:1) >ugo$iyato V (71:25:3:1) >ugoriqu V (2:173:9:1) >uhil~a V (11:1:3:1) >uHokimato V (2:196:6:1) >uHoSiro V (5:109:7:1) >ujibo V (16:106:9:1) >ukoriha V (25:40:6:1) >umoTirato V (77:11:3:1) >uq~itato V (11:116:23:1) >utorifu V (3:195:22:2) >uw*u V (32:17:5:1) >uxofiYa V (26:90:1:2) >uzolifati V (2:101:14:1) >uwtu V (27:8:5:1) buwrika V (22:60:9:1) bugiYa V (16:58:2:1) bu$~ira V (82:4:3:1) buEovirato V (2:258:36:2) buhita V (26:91:1:2) bur~izati V (56:5:1:2) bus~ati V (2:282:77:1) duEu V (2:61:37:2) Duribato V (33:14:2:1) duxilato V (69:14:4:2) duk~a V (16:126:6:1) Euwqibo V (2:178:16:1) EufiYa V (6:91:31:2) Eul~imo V (18:48:1:2) EuriDu V (11:28:14:2) Eum~iyato V (81:4:3:1) EuT~ilato V (5:107:2:1) Euvira V (16:71:10:1) fuD~ilu V (34:54:7:1) fuEila V (11:1:6:1) fuS~ilato V (21:96:3:1) futiHato V (16:110:9:1) futinu V (82:3:3:1) fuj~irato V (77:9:3:1) furijato V (34:23:11:1) fuz~iEa V (5:64:6:1) gul~ato V (7:119:1:2) gulibu V (11:44:7:2) giyDa V (27:17:1:2) Hu$ira V (34:54:1:2) Hiyla V (3:101:14:1) hudiYa V (69:14:1:2) Humilati V (84:2:3:2) Huq~ato V (3:50:11:1) Hur~ima V (4:86:2:1) Huy~iy V (22:40:18:2) hud~imato V (76:21:6:2) Hul~u V (20:87:7:1) Hum~ilo V (100:10:1:2) HuS~ila V (39:69:7:2) jiA[at]Y^'a V (16:124:2:1) juEila V (26:38:1:2) jumiEa V (3:184:4:1) ku*~iba V (12:110:8:1) ku*ibu V (17:35:4:1) kilo V (54:14:6:1) kufira V (13:31:12:1) kul~ima V (2:178:4:1) kutiba V (11:55:3:2) kiydu V (81:11:3:1) ku$iTato V (27:90:4:2) kub~ato V (58:5:6:1) kubitu V (26:94:1:2) kubokibu V (81:1:3:1) kuw~irato V (5:64:8:2) luEinu V (3:159:5:1) lin V (23:35:4:1) mi V (12:63:7:1) muniEa V (84:3:3:1) mud~ato V (18:18:20:3) muli}o V (34:7:10:1) muz~iqo V (7:43:29:2) nuwdu V (68:49:7:2) nubi*a V (18:99:7:2) nufixa V (4:161:4:1) nuhu V (12:110:11:2) nuj~iYa V (6:37:3:1) nuz~ila V (81:10:3:1) nu$irato V (21:65:2:1) nukisu V (74:8:2:1) nuqira V (88:19:4:1) nuSibato V (77:10:3:1) nusifato V (59:11:23:1) quwtilo V (2:11:2:1) qiyla V (54:12:9:1) qudira V (2:210:12:2) quDiYa V (7:204:2:1) quri}a V (13:31:8:1) quT~iEato V (3:144:13:1) qutila V (12:26:13:1) qud~a V (33:61:5:2) qut~ilu V (6:45:1:2) quTiEa V (4:91:10:1) rud~u V (88:18:4:1) rufiEato V (41:50:17:1) r~ujiEo V (2:25:14:1) ruziqu V (56:4:2:1) ruj~ati V (2:108:7:1) su}ila V (11:77:5:1) siY^'a V (40:37:15:2) Sud~a V (47:15:40:2) suqu V (7:47:2:1) Surifato V (39:71:1:2) siyqa V (13:33:30:2) Sud~u V (81:12:3:1) suE~irato V (11:108:3:1) suEidu V (81:6:3:1) suj~irato V (15:15:3:1) suk~irato V (7:149:2:1) suqiTa V (88:20:4:1) suTiHato V (13:31:4:1) suy~irato V (39:73:18:1) Tibo V (9:87:6:2) TubiEa V (8:2:10:1) tuliyato V (5:27:10:2) tuqub~ila V (77:8:3:1) Tumisato V (3:112:6:1) vuqifu V (83:36:2:1) vuw~iba V (3:96:4:1) wuDiEa V (13:35:4:1) wuEida V (3:25:8:2) wuf~iyato V (12:75:4:1) wujida V (19:15:4:1) wulida V (7:20:7:1) wu,riYa V (32:11:6:1) wuk~ila V (6:27:4:1) wuqifu V (26:21:4:1) xifo V (4:28:6:2) xuliqa V (9:118:4:1) xul~ifu V (16:88:7:1) zido V (4:148:10:1) Zulima V (2:212:1:1) zuy~ina V (3:185:11:1) zuHoziHa V (2:214:16:2) zulozilu V (81:7:3:1) zuw~ijato V Examples: (4:157:15:1) وَقَوْلِهِمْ إِنَّا قَتَلْنَا الْمَسِيحَ عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَمَا قَتَلُوهُ وَمَا صَلَبُوهُ وَلَٰكِن شُبِّهَ لَهُمْ ۚ That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah";- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, (6:118:3:1) فَكُلُوا مِمَّا ذُكِرَ اسْمُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْهِ إِن كُنتُم بِآيَاتِهِ مُؤْمِنِينَ So eat of (meats) on which Allah's name hath been pronounced, if ye have faith in His signs.

You alone we ask for help. Do you know how many times the detached pronoun (iyya = alone) occur in Quran? This occurs 24 times in the Quran. 1. With 1 Person singular 5 times 2. With 1 Person plural 2 times 3. With 3 Person Masculine singular 8 times 4. With 3 Person Masculine plural 1 time 5. With 2 Person Masculine singular 2 times 6.

Eat of the good things that We have provided for you, and be grateful to Allah, if it is Him alone ye worship. 4 نَّحْنُ نَرْزُقُكُمْ وَإِيَّاهُمْ We provide sustenance for you and for them;- 5. إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ [١:٥] You alone we worship.

AL Hamdu lillah. This is rather easy with Quranic Arabic Corpus. Want to know how many times the word Rahman occurs in the Quran. It is easy. In Access 2007 import the corpus data, Select the "LEM:r~aHoma`n" , copy it, again select and right click, from drop down go to Text Filter, Select Contain, paste the text, click OK. You will get 57 occurrences. Analyzing Quranic Arabic Corpus morphological data based on word ROOT is easy. For example if you want to filter all the Words based on the ROOT:wqy (whose derivatives are muttaqeen, taqwa, waq etc) just copy the ROOT:wqy in MS Access 2007, right-click the mouse and select Text Filter > Contains > paste > OK. You will get all the 258 occurences of words with this root.
  6. Virtues Of Reciting Surahs

    Another Virtue of Al-Fatiha Imam Ahmad recorded that Ibn Jabir said, "I went to the Messenger of Allah after he had poured water (for purification) and said, `Peace be unto you, O Messenger of Allah!' He did not answer me. So I said again, `Peace be unto you, O Messenger of Allah!' Again, he did not answer me, so I said again, `Peace be unto you, O Messenger of Allah!' Still he did not answer me. The Messenger of Allah went while I was following him, until he arrived at his residence. I went to the Masjid and sat there sad and depressed. The Messenger of Allah came out after he performed his purification and said, (Peace and Allah's mercy be unto you, peace and Allah's mercy be unto you, peace and Allah's mercy be unto you.) He then said, (O `Abdullah bin Jabir! Should I inform you of the best Surah in the Qur'an) I said, `Yes, O Messenger of Allah!' He said, (Read, `All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the existence,' until you finish it.)'' This Hadith has a good chain of narrators. Another Virtue of Al-Fatiha Muslim recorded in his Sahih, and An-Nasa'i in his Sunan that Ibn `Abbas said, "While Jibril (Gabriel) was with the Messenger of Allah , he heard a noise from above. Jibril lifted his sight to the sky and said, `This is a door in heaven being open, and it has never been opened before now.' An angel descended from that door and came to the Prophet and said, `Receive the glad tidings of two lights that you have been given, which no other Prophet before you was given: the Opening of the Book and the last (three) Ayat of Surat Al-Baqarah. You will not read a letter of them, but will gain its benefit.''' This is the wording collected by An-Nasa'i (Al-Kubra 5:12) and Muslim recorded similar wording (1:554).
  7. The Quickest Way To The Quran

    How many unique words are there in the Quran? I put forward this question to Kais Dukes, author of Quranic Arabic Corpus. My emailed question looked like this: Dear Brother,>> السلام عليكم>> I have gone through your website and found it very essential for> learners, researchers and for curious Muslims.>> I have a question to you?> How many words are there in the Holy Quran without repetion? In other> words, how many unique words are there in the Quran?>> I hope you have the answer, If your answer is from a seconday source,> please refer to the relevant sources.>> مع أطيب التمنيات>> Md. Fazlul Haque In response to my question, he wrote: Salamu Alaykum Fazlul Haque,To the best of my knowledge, our project is the first accurateannotated morphological work for the Quran by computer, so I would besurprised at an accurate unique word count from another secondarysource. Although of course, I could be wrong. The number of uniqueArabic words in the Quran is not an easy question to answer. In Arabicthe concept of a "word" can have multiple technical linguisticinterpretations. Based on the existing annotation we have performed atthe Quranic Arabic Corpus (http://corpus.quran.com), I can provide thefollowing statistics: Total number of space-seperated words = 77,430Number of *unique* surface forms (i.e. space-separated word-forms,including clitics) = 18994Number of unique words by *stem* = 12183Number of unique words by *root* = 1685 (not necessarily a greatmetric for unique word counting, e.g. pronouns have no Semitic root)Number of unique words by *lemma* = 3382 (excluding verbs, and otherwords where lemma is not annotated).This is a primary source (we annotated this ourselves). These figuresare quite accurate, but are subject to minor revision as furtherchecking occurs. The terms used above have technical linguisticmeanings. Thus, the number of unique "words" is not only a problem ofcounting. Wwe have computers, so counting annotated data is in theoryvery simple, I produced the above statistics after 10 minutes of workjust now. The issue is what metric to use ... unique white-spaceseparated word-forms, stems, roots, lemmas, or something else? UnlikeEnglish, Arabic is a highly inflected and morphologically richlanguage, with multiple segments often fused into a single word-form.As an estimate, I would say that there are at most 7,000 unique"words" in the Quran in the sense of what you would need to have alexicon with wide-ranging coverage for the Quran. Something alsointeresting to note, is the Zipfian distribution. A handful of words(e.g. the top 100 words) will cover a very large percentage of theactual Quran, i.e. most verses. (the 80/20 rule).You might be interested in these web pages:http://corpus.quran.com/lemmas.jsp - List of unique lemmas in theQuran organized by frequencyhttp://corpus.quran.com/verbs.jsp - List of unique verbs in the Quranorganized by frequencySorry for giving you such a vague linguist's response, but in Arabicthe concept of a unique word is itself vague, and Arabic linguists (orat least computational Arabic linguists) tend to prefer to work withbetter defined terms such as the white-space separated tokens, surfaceform, lemma, stem and root, but even then those terms also haveproblems :-)I would suggest that the above two web pages with lists of mostfrequently occurring lemmas and verb roots, are probably more what youare looking for.If you have any further questions, please ask, I would be happy to help.-- Kais DukesLanguage Research GroupSchool of ComputingUniversity of Leeds

    I wrote a post with the title "The Quickest Way to the Quran". But it is vanished from IF. Why?
  9. There are 77430 words in the Quran, but it is said that the Quran has around 2000 (TWO THOUSAND) unique (unrepeated) words. I am trying to categorize those words in a way easily comprehensible to non-Native learners of Arabic. I think this is the quickest way to understanding Quran, because you need not try to understand Quran word by word……What you need is to group the basic vocabulary with simple examples.

    Thank you very much IF for your offer.
  11. Hello Brothers and Sisters السلام عليكم و رحمة الله I am a young Muslim working in a public college teaching English as a Second Language. I am very much interested in Islamic topics especially the Holy Quran. But unfortunately I did not find any separate section on The Quran in this Forum. I hope you will introduce such a section very soon. Wishing you all the best الله حافظ Fazlul Haque Bangladesh
