Allah subhana wa ta`ala Chose to reveal Al Qur'aan in Arabic.
We verily, have made it a Qur'aan in Arabic, that you may be able to understand (its meanings and its admonitions). (Az-Zukhruf 43:3) [Also look up 12.2, 13.37, 20.113, 39.28, 41.3, 42.7, 43.3].
I do not promote neglecting the learning of the Arabic language due to any of this work; rather I hope to aid the understanding and learning the Qur’an’s meanings. And Allah knows best.
And Imaam Al-Shafi'i (one of the four imaams) said: People didn't become ignorant and didn't differ amongst themselves except because they left Arabic and leaned towards the language of Aristotle.
Quoted by Al-Suyuti in Sawn Al-Mantiq p15. He said on p22:
I have found Salaf before Al-Shafi'i indicate what he did: that the cause of heresy (al-ibtida') is ignorance of Arabic language.
This work is intended to aid us in understanding our deen, not to be a substitute for Arabic. And Allah knows best..
