About Us

About Midad:

Midad Centre was established in 2017 at the hands of brothers passionate about the Arabic language based in both the UK and Egypt.

Their passion for the Arabic Language pushed them to establish a center; not merely to generate profits, but instead to serve and spread the Arabic language; the language of the Qur’an, the language that’s status was raised when Allah subhana wa ta’ala chose it for His book { إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَاهُ قُرْآنًا عَرَبِيًّا لَّعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ } ‘Indeed We have sent it downed an Arabic Qur’an that you might understand’ Surah Yusuf, verse 2.

Furthermore Midad understands it is compulsory upon Muslims to learn in Arabic and is therefore feels obliged to assist Muslims in this endeavor, as Shaykh al Islam ibn Taymiyyah said:

إن اللغة العربية من الدِّين ومعرفتها فرض واجب ، فإن فهم الكتاب والسنة فرض ولا يُفهَم إلا بفهم العربية وما لا يتم الواجب إلا به فهو واجب

‘Indeed the Arabic Language is from the religion and knowing Arabic is an obligatory duty, If it is a duty to understand the Qur’an and the Sunnah, and they cannot be understood except without knowing Arabic, then the means that is needed to fulfil the duty also becomes obligatory.’

We are simply here to call, and hopefully assist the billions of Muslims around the world to learn Arabic.

And we do not want to stop there but we also want to call non-muslims alike to learn this beautiful rich and poetic language that please any ear that hears it even without understanding it.

Finally we ask Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala to reward abundantly all those who aided in the establishment of Midad, and all the teachers who continually strive in serving the Arabic language and their students, ameen.

Our Goals:

  1. Spread Arabic to every corner of the globe, as it is a must for every Muslim to learn in order to truly understand the Qur’an.
    Like it is also needed by a muslim for many aspects in their lives, such as daily adhkar and other aspects of the religion.

  2. Spread moderate Islamic culture and differentiate between what is from the religion and what is from culture and traditions while also correcting widespread misconceptions about Islam/Muslims in the west.

  3. Enable people to understand that the Arabic language is the key to knowledge; knowledge of the religion, history and literature. That it allows those who have mastered it to connect directly with texts without the barrier of translations that sometimes are incapable of reflecting the true meaning or even distort meanings. It is impossible for any translation to express the full meaning of the deep rich words that the Arabic language is famous for, especially in terms of translation of the Qur’an, which led many of the scholars to learn Arabic in order to unlock its secrets.

  4. Preparing Arabic students to become Arabic teachers themselves and spread Arabic in their own country. Knowing that spreading Arabic throughout all countries is above our ability, in fact above the ability of all the Arabic institutes put together, we aim to equip our students to take on this mission themselves. With the blessings of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala we have already seen many of our students go on to open small and large Arabic centers in their localities which led to large numbers learning the Quran, nahw (grammar), sarf (morphology) and the basics of language, providing never ending benefits.

  5. Aiding student to achieve their goals in the Arabic language, whatever they may be. We respect the goals of the student regardless of them being religious or for general communication or work and trade related. We are flexible in our syllabus, teaching methods and the lesson timing according to those goals.
