I'm a Muslim too!!!

If you are a non-Arab Muslim, then it is totally understandable that you want to learn Arabic. The course offered here is still very basic and would merely help you read the letters. The language used in the Quran is old and complex. I advise you for the time being to find books in your language that explain the Quran in detail.

I wouldn't be exaggerating if I said that most Arabs can't understand all the Quran without focused learning in religion classes.

no no ur right most Arabs can't understand the Quran and yes that is very helpful thank u

ok so i went to Al-Huda 3 years ago and well we are in the same grade but i don't remember you, maybe our birthdays are different I'm a early winter baby so yeah


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Horsey-Girl

Wow, same. Early winter! But there are lots of Al-Huda's... Not just one in one city. Do you mean school grade? (I don't go school!)

I believe the Quran is written is MSA Arabic and the type of Arabic taught on here is MSA.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Horsey-Girl

I think so too.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NymphedoraTonks

oh wow thats awesome


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ibimisai

It's a mix of MSA and Egyptian dialect. It consists words other Arabs won't understand. I advise choosing a 100% MSA course or choosing an Arab dialect and following a course 100% dialect. Because this mix is not bringing you far.

really. that interesting maybe I'm just bad yeah sorry nvm


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Horsey-Girl

I agree with Duolingo but I kind of wish I knew how old you were cause it's nice to know if you have something in common but Duolingo doesn't allow posting personal info, (not that someone can stalk you down really, just cause they know your age.)

I am also a Muslim and I know how to read the Quran You have to read more in Arabic to master it, because the Quran is difficult to read in simple Arabic. You have a lot and a lot . But if you want to read the Koran, find a Quran in your language
