Studying Nahw by Shaykh ibn Uthaymeen

11 May

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalaamu 3Alaykum wa Rahmatullaah

Many people think that grammar is difficult to learn and understand. Regarding studying Nahw (grammar), shaykh ibn Uthaymeen rahimahullah says:

The science of nahw (grammar) is a noble science that is a means to two important things:

  1. Having an understanding of the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wassallam). Comprehension of these two will give one understanding and knowledge of grammar.
  2. Establishing the tongue upon the Arabic language that the words of Allaah revealed in; this is why having an understanding of nahw is a very important matter. Although, nahw in the beginning stages is difficult to comprehend, it becomes easier in the end. The similitude is given: a house of straw, but a door of iron, meaning it is difficult to get inside, but once you are in, everything is easy for you. This is why it is necessary for the people to have a strong desire and motivation during the beginning stages of learning until it becomes easier upon them in the end.

Furthermore, we do not take into consideration the words of the one who says: “grammar is difficult!”, because the student thinks that he will never become firmly established in grammar, and this is not correct. Rather it is upon the student to study and concentrate in the beginning and it will become easy for him in the end.

Some of them (i.e., poets) say:

Nahw is difficult and its staircase is long*
When the one who does not understand it climbs it,
Intending to learn Arabic by it, instead it takes him further away from it.

* (meaning, learning it seems never-ending)

This is not correct, and we do not agree with this. Rather we say: insha’-Allaah – grammar is easy, its staircase is short and its steps are easy to climb, for the one who understands it from the beginning.
