Qur’an in Arabic-Why?

“Arabic is a very natural language.

ImamMohammedSpeaking Believe me, the best of all expressions.  I’m using the term expressions now in the full context of culture.  Art.  Everything. Language, art, work, whatever.  The best of all expressions in the long run, are the expressions that stay true the original nature.  Those are the best expressions.  Expressions that stay true to the original nature.

This talk that I’m giving you is to introduce you to the study of the Qur’anic Arabic, to go into the Qur’an, to learn the Qur’an in Arabic.

Thinking that this Qur’an was just given in Arabic is not enough.

Says, why?  What was the reason.  What was the main reason for the Qur’an being in Arabic?

Some would say, “because Arabic is the best language”.

No.  Its because Muhammed was the best choice for the prophet.  Muhammed was the best choice and last prophet and he spoke Arabic.

So the Qur’an says, never did G_d send a messenger to a people speaking another language.”

What is the main reason for the Qur’an being in Arabic?

    Imam Mohammed is very Blessed by Allah and Allah Blesses all of us who hears him , a great example of that is his explanation of why Allah gave us the Quran in Arabic , because Muhammed The Prophet was the best choice. Please show me on this planet , who could give a wiser answer to that Question

    As usual, high but simple and clear wisdom from our beloved leader. Clearly Prophet Mohammed (PBUH)was the best choice for the final revelation. I thank Allah for His messenger and seal of the prophets and I thank Allah for Imam Warith D Mohammed.

    Imam WD Mohammed was chosen by Allah our LORD THE lord of all the creation. A word to a wise is enough.
