Welcome! What is it that is hard to understand exactly?

Ahmad AlKurdy (Administrator) October 26, 2023 at 5:00 pm

We have staff and teachers to help the students with their questions and challenges. Please respect that.

I recommend that you attend the regular webinars we have on this topic where we discuss this in depth and help people apply Islam based on their abilities.

We do know what these words mean. If you do not know what they mean, you can ask and learn.

Your belief about what constitutes religion is yours. It is not valid in Islam.

Islam means to submit to the commandments of God, according to His terms and conditions, not according to our desires and wishes. God tells us what to do and how to do it by way of His messengers and we follow those instructions as Muslims.

God commanded that Salah, the prescribed ritual devotion, is done a certain way, in the Arabic language. This is based on one’s ability. Those who do not know Arabic start with short phrases of praising God and His perfection while doing the motions and postures during the prescribed times.

Worship in Islam is not limited to Salah. There are many acts of devotion including prayers that are said in one’s own language. Salah is very specific.

This command has nothing to do with race as you have claimed.

God chose the Arabic language. This fact is clear throughout the Quran. The Quran is in Arabic and Salah is performed using Arabic words.

For more on Salah

As for your claims about Christians, you are mistaken and have not considered all the passages in the Quran about this very topic. You should not take words out of context.

Salvation is exclusive to those who submit to God on His terms and conditions, not on man made religions. Christianity is a combination of many man made religions and is split into numerous denominations. It is not the Way that God sent to Jesus. Jesus was a Muslim and those who follow him are Muslims.

I invite you to learn more.

We have many other Ebooks, blog posts, infographics and videos that I invite you to check out before you make claims about what we say or do not say.

How do we say these prayers in english

I’m new and I can not say are understand not he saying..

Assalamu alaykom wa rahma’tullah wa barakatuh, [may peace and blessings of Allah be on you], everything starts out with a little difficulty, a new job – you learn it though so that you can earn a good wage, in fact everything you have ever done in life, or will do, requires a measure of input from you. This is the most beautiful and beneficial pathway of learning that you will ever undertake and it will not end really, until you return to Allah subhana wa t’ala. And that is okay. The very best things are worth the striving and struggle. And this struggle brings you eternal peace and reward, and happiness. Imagine how hard you would need to work to go to the best holiday destination in the world, where you could do whatever you want, and where you will eat the best, and be surrounded by enthusiastic and dedicated people – even the staff. You’d work hard, you would learn a few key phrases just so that you could make your stay more pleasurable and know how to get to where you want to be, right? And you would work hard and save to get there. Well, this is to god, and with the help of God – you wont be alone to take and pass the tests of life, and nowadays we have so many resources for learning about islam, including Arabic, and how to pray etc… and in Jannah, you will be so pleased you put all your effort into getting there, and you know what? No matter what you face in this life now, you will find you are able to deal in a different way insha Allah, and that no matter what comes, you have Allah, and He is with you always, He has got your back, in fact your everything. Fi amanillah

You will get it with practice. I am still a newbie but I do know that Allah is merciful to the believers. When you learned to walk, you fell down a lot I am sure. But you tried again until you got it.

I have been learning Spanish for years now (as a second language and my father is fluent) and when I first learned I couldn’t recite the alphabet but I can now write a short and simple essay in Spanish. So too with Arabic. But I do mean that it took me years, six years and I am still not fluent. It will come eventually.

Walaykom salam wa rahma’tullah wa barakatuh, may Allah lead you throughout your life, and guide you always to that which pleases Him the most, and grant you Jannah al firdaus, ameen.

Praise to Allah just took mines Tuesday

Salaam alaikum, I would like to find out does the number of units refer to steps whereby we raise our hand’s shoulder height to sit up straight only(meaning you repeat this portion of the prayer 2, 3, or 4 times) or the entire prayer as explained in the video lesson?

as a new to this islam lesson, can you please give where the prayer to be read in quran for me to follow and read thoroughy. thanks

The part before chapter 1. It is the very first page

Only one question i messed up

Ive just converted and I have much to learn. As I don’t speak Arabic this is very difficult. would they help with this at the mosque?

Sara Bokker (Administrator) December 25, 2022 at 5:45 pm

Congratulations Br. Leif. Please take the salah course and all the other NMA courses and live sessions, in particular, Practice Makes Perfect, which is a live session. If you have a local Islamic center and feel comfortable in visiting that would be great too. Don’t worry about not speaking Arabic yet. NMA also has Quran lessons and Arabic for free as well.

may i ask if you also give fre quaran hard copy..thank u in advance.

I need to learn to do Salah well. Can you help us with an electronic book or PDF to help us remember every sentence and movement during Salah? Additionally, can I enrol in Quran Recitation classes to learn how to perform Salah?

How do I join the Arabic classes?

I’m with you! New Muslim convert amd trying to get a hang of the Arabic language.. it’s a struggle to say the least but keep pushing forward and having faith Inshallah we will all get there!

How can I learn the surahs and all what to say during salah?

Coordinator NMA (Administrator) August 8, 2022 at 8:39 am

You can join our Quran Recitation classes to learn small chapters of Quran which you can recite in Salah.

Also, do join our monthly Prayer live classes to learn How to pray.

If you any further questions please do email us at [email protected]

Assalamu alaikum wa ramatullah wa barakatuh.

May I ask when is your Quran classes? Thank you from Philippines.

This site is very helpful!

Kiyonah Thundersong February 19, 2022 at 4:15 pm

Is it ok to let a video of the prayers play while we learn to say the words? I can easily do it in English, but I am aware that Arabic is best. Is it better to pray incorrectly while trying to learn, or to not pray at all, because mistakes would be sinful? Thank you.

Is say Rabbgh firli 1 time sufficient or should it be recited at least 2 times?

Learn how you need I am new and find it hard even remember the English translations
I have epilepsy but I do my best
Not sure if I give best advice
But if we can chat feel free to talk

Yes is it somewhere that we can get help with reciting the words correctly?

Assalamualaykum DeAndre, I use, the recitation is the same as in these videos and there are videos for each daily prayer, even my kids learned their salah with this

same video my daughter and I learned from!

“Even my kids learned their salah with this”. Oh man, you and and Miranda just put the pressure on all adults now. lol.

Assalam walaikum!

Them are terrific videos to learn from. A definite go to for Salah practice! Inshallah we will all get it down pat soon enough!

I’m having a hard time with the language and recitation

are you still facing it?
