The Problem

Translations are the problem. They can be quite embarrassing as in the picture above. Trying to translate a concept into another language using just one word is often not possible. Some concepts don’t exist in other cultures and languages and therefore there won’t be a single word equivalent. Try to translate the word punk into another language using only one word, to get the image below in a non-English speaking person’s mind. It’s simply not possible.


The Time Machine

Meanings change over time. The Ilm Al-Quran course takes you back in time so you can see how the Arabic words were used during the time of revelation. Language changes over time, new words are coined, words previously coined take on new meanings. This has become a source of misunderstanding in terms of the Quran. Translations unfortunately do not take these changes into consideration. The course is designed to teach Arabs and non-Arabs alike. Seven of the most renowned lexicons, such as Kitab al-Ayn, and Mufradat Raghib are used to get a more precise meaning of each word.


Life is Short, I Don’t Have Much Time

There are 6 modules in the course. Each module has 10 lessons that are completed in 6 weeks with two classes per week. There are apps and application books to ensure you get all the practice you need. If done full time, the course can comfortably be completed in 3 months, with a total of 75-100 hours spent on both lessons and practice.

The course uses a content based method of language acquisition. Throughout the course, you will practice over 3000 ayat of the Quran. You will be able to see a clear difference in comprehension just after just 3 lessons and after two modules, you will feel comfortable with the basics of the Quran.


We Hate Grammar and We Hope You Do Too

Grammar tends to chase people away from learning language. Our course uses grammar on a need to know basis. People do not learn grammar in order to comprehend and speak in their own languages, so there is no reason they should heavily invest in it to learn another language. Children know close to no grammatical rules. They simply apply them naturally. We have tried to minimize a student’s interaction with grammatical principles in the beginning while gradually increasing the number as the course progresses.

    A beautiful course which has helped me gain a better understanding of who my Creator really is! The instructors went out of their way to make sure the concepts were clearly understood. Reading the Quran has become even more enjoyable with a lot more understanding.

  2. Thank you

    I thoroughly enjoyed learning the deeper meanings of the Quranic Arabic words and would like to thank the admin for their support in posting the explanations on WhatsApp. Jazakallah!

  3. Module 1 Review

    5

    This has been an incredibly enjoyable and eye-opening course. The explanations of the concept behind each word in the Quran helps to cement the words and ideas in your brain in a way that is difficult to forget! The techniques in this course help kick-start understanding the Quran, even if you have a limited knowledge of Arabic. The structure of the course itself is fantastic and aids the students in learning. I highly recommend this course to anyone who always wanted to know what they’re reciting in the Quran and in their prayers, but just couldn’t remember the translations.

    Gives a very good understading of the Quranic words, helping us connect to the root of the meanings. Leads to go to the depth of the Quranic language, in turn helping to understand the message of Allah and retain it in our hearts.
    The classes taken by Syed are specially very insighful.
    The revision classes taken by Sister Shaheen also were wonderful, helping in consolidating the concepts.
    Jazakallah Khairan to the team of TRS

  6. Module 1

    5

    Excellent Course. After taking this course, I have been able to translate some of the simpler verses of the Holy Quran and understand what I am reciting. Definitely recommend the course.

  7. Informative and thought-provoking

    4

    This course is very interesting and enlightening. It teaches understanding of Qur’anic words through their root words. We learn that each Arabic word has it’s own meaning, which is lost in translation into other languages such as English. Sayyid Ali’s insightful explanation of the root words, and the connections between words and concepts was thought-provoking and informative. Having some background in Arabic makes it easier to grasp what is being taught. The cover teachers, revision session tutors and admin have done their best. Thank you to the entire team at TRS Academy.

  8. A course that helped me learn Quran at my own pace.

    5

    Excellent teachers, and learning materials. I could not attend all the live sessions but access to the recordings meant that I could go back and listen to the lessons according to my own preference. I am a shia muslim but I feel bad for any learners from other muslim sects as sometimes the discussions about beliefs and practices are focused on one sub-sect of shia muslims which may be annoying for some learners. The examples are discussion about fiqh, shia beliefs or mourning practices during Muharram. Keeping the discussion focused to the course material without criticising the practice and beliefs of other muslims or other shias will be polite and appropriate. The same teaching recordings can also be made available as a course if teacher availability for new sessions is an issue. This will ensure continued learning for the people who have taken one module and waiting for the next one. Keeping discussions focused to course material will help to achieve this.
    Small videos on the website are really helpful ad more videos for the different words with similar meanings can be added to help learners.
    Course exams are well structured and with little distraction one can chose the wrong answer. I appreciate the dedication of the teachers who teach from various countries and put their time and effort into it.
    The modules material for next modules can be made available for the learners to access at their own pace in advance of taking the modules. I highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to understand Quran when they read it.

  9. Perspective Changing course

    5

    As’Salam Alikum and JazakAllah khair for offering this wonderful course. I have just completed the first module and I believe the way I read Quran and the Zikr in daily Salah has changed already. It has helped me understand the true meaning and emotions behind each and every word we utter for Allah. I am keen to take Module 2 whenever it will be offered.

    This is by far the best Arabic learning course I have come across so far. Please continue offering this course and help many more people like me to benefit from this.

    May Allah Accept all your efforts. Ameen.

  10. Brings you closer to the Qur'an

    5

    An excellent course that is well worth the effort. It really helps to understand more of what you are reading when reciting the Qur’an. Alhamdulillah a great course and highly recommended.
