This was precious and a very pleasant event in the life of participants of “Understand Quran-The Easy Way Workshop” held from 2nd Nov to 4th Nov 2012. At the request of “Bihar Anjuman” this 3-days workshop was conducted by Jb. Abdul Raheem Nayeemuddin Sb, the coordinator of “Understand Al-Qur’an Academy, Hyderabad”, at Anand Place, Anand Vihar, Anisabad, Patna. The workshop was jointly sponsored by “Bihar Anjuman” & “Indian Muslim Educational and Social Welfare Trust-Patna”.
The workshop commenced at 8:30 am on 2nd Nov 2012 in the presence of Jb. S.S. Taqiuddin Firdaus Sb., Jb. Wali Rahmani Sb. & Jb. Maulana Rizwan Ahmad Islahi (Ameer-e-Muqami, JIH).
Jb. S.S. Taqiuddin Firdausi Nadwi, the former HOD of Ministry of Education, Gov. of Saudi Arabia, inaugurated the workshop. In his inaugural speech he talked on the topic “Understanding Quran-Necessities and Importance”. According to him the life, character & saying of Prophet Muhammad PBUH have the best explanation of The Holy Quran. The Quran is the only book in which message of our Creator is preserved in its original form. This is the only book which guides us how to live according to the wishes of Allah SWT, so without understanding it is impossible to get success in this world and the hereafter.
After the inaugural speech, Jb. Abdul Raheem Nayeemuddin Sb. welcomed all the participants of the workshop. He congratulated the sponsors and management of the workshop to make such a nice arrangement for a good cause. He delivered a lecture to convince the audience that it is easy to understand Quran. According to him, every tenth word of the Quran is from “Al-Fatiha” so if any one understands the meaning of Surah Al-Fatiha he attains 10% vocabulary of Quranic Words. In Quran Allah SWT says “And We have indeed made the Qur'ân easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)?” So we must believe in words of Allah. He convinced that by the grace of Allah SWT after completion of the workshop all of you will be able to understand 50% of Quranic words. He introduced the TPI (Total Physical Ineraction) methodology of teaching. He demonstrated how easy it is to remember words using TPI. The technique developed by Jb Abdulazeez Abdul Raheem, the director of Understand Al-Quran Academy-Hyderabad, is now accepted globally as the best learning method; hence it is being used in various madrasas and academies in India and abroad. The first session ended at 12:00 noon. After Namaz-e-Juma, lunch was provided at subsidized rate to the participants. The second session started at 03:00pm which lasted for two hours. During the workshop, there were arrangements of refreshments. There were separate arrangements for gents and ladies to take rest and offering of Salah during the breaks.
Participants enjoyed learning and understanding new words with amazing speed. The coordinator taught basic Arabic grammar with TPI, which was so impressive that they can’t forget it in their life. As they were learning and understanding the meaning of Holy Quran directly in Arabic they were becoming more excited and enthusiastic. The speech of Jb. Nayeemuddin Sb during the workshop was heart touching and so lesson giving that most eyes were filled of tears.
