    Disturber of the hearts was a good read.

    We all are reminded of death but often we forget about the trials of the actual grave.

    May Allah ease the pain of the grave to those alive and to those who have withered away in the grave.

    Pray for the dead!

    www.mihbarah.wordpress.com - check out the "Arabic Resources" section, In Sha' Allah.

    Over the years, I've studied the various Islamic sciences through a text-based approach as I have always been an autodidact. Relying on Arabic-Arabic dictionaries, dictionaries of technical terms for each of the sciences, and resorting to commentaries, explanations, and glosses for the texts in question- I've acquired science-specific vocabulary..

    For years, I've worked with students going over the grammar and meaning of texts word-by-word; works of Aqidah, Nahw, Fiqh, Tafseer, Abrogation of the Quran, Usul, Ilm ar-Rijal, Shuruh al-Hadith, Zuhd, Islamic Poetry and other subjects.

    I am in the last semester of a Master's degree at an Islamic university.

    Right now I'm translating 3 books from Arabic to English which will likely be published by different institutions. Through teaching and translating, I have been acquiring Ijazat and Athbat from senior scholars over the past few years.

    The only thing you need to learn Arabic is Du'a, patience, time, and persistence. If learning Arabic relied solely on intelligence, a lot of us would have no hope. Rather, learning Arabic is a way of gaining intelligence, bi-'Idhni Llahi.
    masha'Allah Alhamdulillah allahumma bareek tabark'Allah

    That's good, are you a revert?

    ​​​​​I'm going to tag you about another question on a Qur'an thread as don't want to detail this thread in Sha Allah

    I do totally agree that Arabic is way more advanced then English but Allah knows how long it will take me to learn Arabic, I'm not exactly sharpest tool in the box lol 😂🤦🤷

    I remember from old posts that you translate works or something along those lines, so if you don't mind me asking how did you get a grasp for the arabic language?

    I can tell you that if you learn Arabic you will be able to read much faster than in English. Arabic has fewer words and more meaning than English.

    but ghazalis books are usually good

    Tafsir saadi is good a nice read than ibn kathie which is more terminology technical focused

    Riyadus saaliheen good hadith compilation

    Explanation of 40 hadith of imam nawawi
    They don't seem to have many options on that website

    Will have a look again

    Jazak Allah hu Khair
