Is it appropriate to read the Qur'an in Latin alphabet instead of the Arabic?
The Words And the Letters of the Qur’an is Like a Living Cover
The utterance and the letters of the Qur’an are the symbols and names of Islam. What preserves the true meanings of the ayahs is Its living utterance and letters. Thus, They are impossible to change. Besides, the words and the letters of the Qur’an is like a living cover. If the letters and the words of the Qur’an are changed, it wouldn’t be Qur’an.
"Lo! We have appointed it a Lecture, in Arabic that haply ye may conceive (by understanding)." (Surah Zukhruf, 3)
"A Lecture in Arabic (we revealed), containing no crookedness, which haply they may ward off." (Surah Zumar, 28)
Arabic and the Arabic letters are attributed to Islam after Allah has chosen the Arabic as a cover for his words. On the other hand, the only reason of improvement of the Arabic language is Islam Religion instead of staying at the beginning levels. Under those circumstances it will be true to call the Arabic letters as “The Letters of Quran and The Letters of Islam”.
When looked at the history, every language developed after it is born and with the lapse of time it is transformed. And some of the languages has slide away by passage of time. That Arabic language doesn’t have an “evolution period” is what differs it from the other languages. Arabic is the only language in the world that doesn’t need an evolution with its stable and perfect rules. In this context, it is the only language worthy of being a means of the divine declaration.
The feature of Arabic; “It is syntactical.” Meaning; Arabic cannot be compared to any other language in terms of grammatical rules.
The shortest wording without any lost in the meaning is only in Arabic language. It is also the most advanced language amongst world languages in terms of eloquence, literature and fluency. Thus no other language can express the meanings in the world.
The richest language in term of words is also Arabic. It has a different word for each action. You can derive many different words from one word root.
Also, there is concordance between the meanings and the phonetics of the words. For example: when you say “zalzala” (earthquake) the “quake” in the meaning feels in your tongue. For this reason, it is again Arabic language to make mind, soul, heart and all the senses of the mankind perceive the divine truths as it does the translatorship of the soul, heart and mind.
Allah, if he had wished, would assign this job to another language by giving the same qualifications to that language. But divine wisdom determined the Arabic language.
The Islamic letters are like the blessed coverings preserving the divinity and freshness of the divine words.Imam Suyuti says, “If the verses of Quran written with a different alphabet other than the letter of revelation than It will lose its feature of being verse since the divine inspiration consists of wording and the meaning. And also Angel Gabriel brought and revealed the Quran to the Prophet (pbuh) in Arabic language.
