Its a good way to struggle by yourself. Try to note each act of reciter. Read the instructions in the back of Quran, you will understand where to stop and where to not.
Alhamdulillah brother, thanks for the positive post. Regarding to the instructions in the back of the Al-Quran I don't think I could find any of them since it's all in arabic.
I hope it will not break your spirit in learn Islamic knowledge. But it is better if you learn tafseer from a teacher. Tafseer is interpretation. This is more than just translation. Some words in Qur'an can be interpreted into more than one meaning.
Al-Qur'an is one source of sharia. If you make a mistake in translate an Arabic novel into Malay language, it will not change anything. But if you make a mistake in interpret Qur'an, it is possible becomes a beginning of new bid'ah.
But if you just want to train your Arabic language, you can start with translate Arabic articles. There are many Arabic articles in the web. Remember, do not ever make a tafseer of Qur'an and hadith until you have enough knowledge about it.
Always learn, brother. And don't ever hesitate to ask and seek knowledge from people who have knowledge. Remember what Malay people say "Malu bertanya, sesat di jalan" (Shame to asking, lost in the way).
Inshallah brother, I will try to do all these things. I knew that reading translation wasn't as good as reading it through arabic, thus Inshallah I will try to get some lessons. I will try to avoid making tafseer of Al-Quran and hadeeth before getting enough knowledge. Nice Malay quote by the way, I can use that for my Bahasa Malaysia Composition now. Lastly, I'm having trouble getting knowledge from the internet then spreading it to the real world knowing that it would get rejected. The mindset of a Muslim about right/wrong will be in doubt as there's no one in the real world is accepting his words.
reading translation is good but doesnt capture the essence of the Quran if u studied from a teacher ud see the differnce
Inshallah, I'll try to ask the local Mosque some time near the future to learn about it.
