2012-07-25

Question:

 Dear Dr. Nabulsi

 I live in Australia. My children go to an Islamic school where they learn Quran and Arabic. They are trying hard but they find difficulty in learning Arabic. They read the translation of the Quran to understand it. Shall I be Asked on the Day of Judgement why I didn't teach them the language of the Quran?

 Thank you

Answer

 You should do your best to teacch your children Arabic as they need it to learn the Quran and all Islamic knowledge.

 Best regards
