Satan is a great deceiver. Satan's best game to keep the people from understanding the message of God is to keep them away from it. Quran was revealed in Arabic but God promised to be its teacher, 55:1-2 and the One to explain it, 75:19. God told us in 41:44 that language is irrelevant. and that only the sincere ones are going to understand the Quran irrespective of their language while those who are not sincere or failed to worship Him ALONE will fail to understand it, (even if they speak, read and write Arabic.) See 56:79
Satan designed his game to suit all kinds of Muslims to keep them away from understanding the Quran. Satan knows that reading the Quran by itself does not guarantee understanding it. Satan knows that God is in control and that no one will understand the Quran unless God let him or her. The best trick that Satan can come up with is to get the people to believe him instead of God. Once they do they are prevented from understanding the Quran, God does not accept any partners.
Here is the game Satan has been playing and seems effective on those who failed to worship God ALONE or accept His book ALONE,
If your mother tongue is Arabic, Satan (or his troops) teaches you that the Quran is written in a very sophisticated Arabic that you cannot understand it on your own. That you need someone who is very knowledgeable in Arabic to explain it to you. The Arabic speaking person would then give up reading his/her Quran in Arabic waiting for the chance to find this knowledgeable person.
If you ask your Arabic speaking friends how they find the language of the Quran, they will tell you, DIFFICULT. GO ahead and ask them. BUT what is God telling us about the Quran and the language of the Quran ? See 54:17,22,32, and 54:40 for an answer from God, Himself. Why they have difficulty, read 56:79. and 41:44
- If your mother tongue is not Arabic, Satan (or his troops) will encourage you to read the Quran in Arabic. Why does he do that ? Because he knows that you will not understand enough of it. The majority of those who learn Arabic to study the Quran do not excel enough to understand the implication or interpretation of certain words when used in a special way in the Arabic language. They will have a lot of shortcomings. Many Pakistani and Indian Muslims are forced as children to read the Quran in Arabic and still as adults read the Quran in Arabic but they do not understand a single word of what they read.
If you do not speak or read Arabic and try to read a translation of the Quran to get the message, Satan ( or his troops), will tell you NO, NO, you have to read the Quran in Arabic. Remember what Satan told those who know how to read the Quran in Arabic, he told them, that the Quran is in a difficult Arabic text.
Satan tells you, you will never get the message of the Quran if you read it in a translation.
The result is that the Arabic speaking person does not read the Quran in Arabic because he/she believed Satan and thought the Quran is too difficult to read. Those who do not speak Arabic and believed Satan will try to read the Quran in Arabic while not understanding it. They think the blessings of the Quran comes by just reading it (not by understanding it and accepting its message). Those who tried to read the Quran in their native language translated from Arabic, will fall in the same trap of Satan if they believed him and believed that they cannot get the message of the Quran by reading a translation. They would be discouraged by Satan and end by not reading the Quran in any language.
In all these circumstances Satan will succeed in keeping some Muslims away from getting the message of the Quran. ONE simple mistake these Muslims or non-Muslims do, they believe Satan instead of believing God . They deserve to be with him (Satan), where there is no Quran, no light and no guidance.
We should understand Satan's game so that we can fight it. We need to read the Quran to understand it, not to read it without understanding it, like Donkeys carrying valuable books, See 62:5.
The Quran is a message, not just another beautiful language book. If you cannot read it in Arabic do not wait until the day you excel in your Arabic language, because this day may never come. Trust God and know that He is the teacher of the Quran. He will teach in any language and to any nationality, He created all things. Read your Quran today, (do not wait any longer,) in any language that you can understand and master and leave the rest to God.
