We have been at it since age six, for some even at four.
For most of us,we have even memorised significant portions of it.
Some even go to great length,learning it's TAJWEED and TAJWEED only in their retirement, until their tongue become permanently 'arabised'.
Malaysian Qari and Qariah even have beaten the Arabs and Iranian at international level Quran reading competitions! [ in Kuala Teganun parlance, 'pahang, setabuk dok ! Seumor hiduk dok pahang ! Dari budok sapa peceng ! ]
But the Quran has failed to empower us in our daily lives.
Our prayers remain cold, meaningless rituals of countless standing,mumbling, rukuk and sujud. At best it remained unanswered. Our 'qalbs' remained cold and impervious
Our lives remain stale and uninspiring.
We have failed to 'internalised' our Book.
We avoid it's easily available 'tafseer' in our language like the lepers.
We are just a nation of parrots.
Let us learn basic classical Arabic. Let us start NOW !
