Correction in Translation of The '3uchpuur and the Fire”

Correction in Translation in the file “The '3uchpuur and the Fire” – by Nasrin Ath-thalafiyah
Lesson # 11 of book 1 of Grade 3 of Palestinian School

Bismillah ir rahman ir raheem
Asalamualikum warahma tullahi wabaraka tuhu,

I am extremely sorry for the mistake that took place in the translation. It was due to how the sister who gives me lesson translated, she said she is not good at grammar so I should have paid attention while doing the translation, but I just ran fast in thinking the way she taught subhan Allah. May Allah forgive both of us.

But there is a Great Lesson to learn that is: knowing Arabic Grammar for US at least as non-Arab is paramount important, otherwise we will misunderstand the text and also mistranslate. Subhan Allah.
So here is the mistake that took place and it is between the two forms of a verb with same root letters: first verb is: هرب – it is the original verb – form I of alfa3l aththulathee, and second verb is أهرب, which is the form IV [form four] of the same verb, it is alfa3l aththulatheee majed fihi, the meaning of the verb changes with the adding of the Hamza in front of the original verb and it takes maf3ulun bihi as you see it took ه– and also remember in 4 letters verbs the harf of mudare [أ - ي -ن - ت ] takes a Damma instead of a Fatha and the second to last letter of the verb gets a kasra, while in three letter verbs, the harf of mudare takes fatha and the 2nd to last letter could take fatha, damma, kasra.

Because of these rules now as I started to read the text, I figured what went wrong. Subhan Allah, it is not that the fire didn’t leave the forest nor the clouds of smoke but these are Fa3el [فاعل] of the verb أهرب, - didn’t I see dammah on the words:  لنيرانا and سحب – Subhan Allah.

So the translation should be: The flared up fire could not make him (the bird 3uthpuur) flee, nor the clouds of smoke but he started working immediately with loyalty and honesty.

And my first translation lead me to think that the second verb  بدأ – was for all so I said “they” as if verbs comes in the beginning before the doer/s – it is male/female singular but it is a misunderstanding due to first misunderstanding because the doer/s are already mentioned so if it was “they” then it should be plural. Subhan Allah. Alhamdulillah.

And I am amazed at my readers too, haven’t you noticed these errors. I love people correcting me. Please help each other get better and correct and advice each other.

And you can see how super IMPORTANT it is for us to know the Arabic Grammar rules. Alhamdulillah for the blessings of Allah.

Jazakum Allahu khayran Kathiran.

Issue of Copy Right - & - Removing from my accounts copy righted materials.

bismillah ir rahman ir raheem
asalamualikum warahma tullahiwabaraka tuhu

I just wanted to say jazak allahu khayran to the brother who reminded me of this matter, i am not perfect and i forget and i need reminder like everyone else. So i hope you all excuse my shortcomings whenever you notice and advice me sincere for the sake of Allah. know that even if fail to act on what you advice me on right away but i will not reject your advice but i will try my best to act on it as far as i am able inshaaAllah, though sometimes it may take time. and Allah knows best.

i have tried to remove all doubtful and copy righted books from my pages, including the main sources. i believe we as muslims have more right to be away from stealing than the kuffar - some sites they automatically remove copy righted materials from the account when their system notice the file. maashaaAllah. if they are so strict on this, then why shouldn't we. may Allah forgive us and guide us.

and you know i truly understand this fact now, that this violation of copy right truly hurts others income, whose daily life means of earning is from selling of books after publishing them. i do not think it is fair that one should steal and use them like these. if it was my published books, i am sure i would be very hurt. 

and trust me, i bought all these ebooks found online spending so much money bearing much hardship, and i do not want to say it to brag but i know there were days i didn't eat any lunch just to save that money to buy these books because i don't like ebooks. and it is sad to me that now that i want to sell some of these books back i cannot because they are online and people do not want to buy and prices are lower than what i bought the books for maashaaAllah. but Alhamdulillah.

the al-kitab series is copy righted
the gateway to Arabic as well
Arabic in a Flash
and some other grammar books like 
Arabic Verb and Essential grammar
and Arabic: an essential grammar 
[these last two are removed from scribd upon upload right away]

from the treasure of arabic morphology and Arabic Tutor
- it was online as PDF before it was published as Book - so i kept these books 

and Alarabiyah Bayna yadayk does not have copy right
nor does Madinah Books
and the Saudi, Palestinian and Ummul Qura books are taken from their official sites, thus they are given out for free
and alkitab alasasi of Egypt 
- it is the old version of the book not the newest version of it, so i kept it. for that
the talking story books -
 i don't see any copyright on them, if you know let me know. 

we need much blessing in our study, i surely do not want to lose any blessings by sharing any copy righted materials - while i don't even use any of these ebooks and have hard copy these books that i bought spending much money. Alhamdulillah.

I removed what i had doubt in.

Also, to give you assurance
Alhamdulillah you have 
So don't Be Sad and do not be hesitant to stop using what is copyrighted that is shared online. 

Visit this page again:
InshaaAllah you can see how much you have of materials to learn Arabic From Alhamdulillah.

and visit and buy USED/New books - some of the books are sold at a very cheap price really.

I don't want you to have gastric but to be honest people spend so much money on food and clothes and beautification, i wish they would save some money and use it to buy beneficial books to learn their Deen and take classes.

May Allah guide us to what is best for our deen, duniyah and akhira. 

Forgive me for my shortcomings and guide me through as well. i need reminders like you all do.

jazakum Allahu khayran
was-salamualikum warahma tullahiwabaraka tuhu

I bought this book on Dec. of 2008, and after 1 and half years later almost Alhamdulillah i finished reading the main text of the book Yesterday. I didn't do the exercise because i started reading the book because i really MISSED studying Grammar of Arabic.

Arabic Grammar is amazing, honestly, i really love it much. it is so systematic and organized and logical alhamdulillah and it is beautiful. Alhamdulillah.

As i was eading the book, i was thinking of posting a review of it but i didn't want to write until i was done. There was one thing i wanted to say about this book that is: it is an EASY EASY EASY BOOK. Alhamdulillah.

MaashaaAllah, our noble shaykhah only took the basics of Arabic Grammar and made very brief chapters with brief text containing very brief explanation. Then she followed up with TWO section of Exercises, ONE that should be done with the main chapter and another that should be done by the student at home.

I just tried to do the exercises in my head at the beginning then i didn't do it later in the head. I was just focusing on the text of the book. InshaaAllah in future i will do the book with the exercises.

There seemed to be words that i didn't know the meaning of here and there so i didn't want to do the exercises for that as i have to open the dictionary and pen and papers etc. my aim was to study the grammar firstly. alhamdulillah.

i bought this book after reading the review of brother Aboo Imran that you can find here: CLICK HERE and he said, "lso for those doing Madinah Book Two and Three then you will have few problems understanding the lessons and principles as the Shaykhah used very clear and understandable terminology."

This is very true, alhamdulillah. maashaaallah i just realized i understood something else from what he said, that is "will have problem".

maashaaAllah no, i do not think those finishing 3 madinah books will have problem, maybe few as the brother said, not even few i think, maybe couple due to change of few terms here and there.

But the book is VERY EASY and it is VERY BASIC and it gives for the beginner what they should know at first.

BUT i think the exercises may take more grammar then what shaykhah explained because for the instruments of exception and sisters of innah, dhanna and kana" some more explanation is needed for each particles and also for Haal.

but the main text of the book is SO EASY. Alhamdulillah. For all beginners, this book is perfect and an excellent review as well and practice book alhamdulillah.

SO GET it....

نسرين السلفية

---> "Our da'wah and our 'aqeedah is more beloved to us than our own selves, our wealth and our offspring. So we are not prepared to part with it for gold, nor silver. We say this so that no one may have hope in buying out our da'wah, nor should he think that it is possible for him to purchase it from us for deenaar or dirham. Since the politicians already know this about us, so they have despaired of buying it from us with granted positions or wealth." <---
