The best of all is to learn Arabic. But if you are interested in Urdu then it is on your choice. because Urdu is 70% similar to Arabic. it is on you. but Arabic is best of all as it is the language of Quran. i am too native urdu and i am learning arabic. and it is too easy for me to learn arabic as many many words are similar to urdu.

If one can read Urdu then one can also read Farsi and Arabic! ?

Can someone confirm that if one can read Urdu then they can read Arabic and Farsi aswell?

I'm learning Urdu because it's my fiance's family's first language. - A separate pursuit from my learning Arabic.

Yes. The Arabic, Farsi, and Urdu dialect is the same, and thus the knowledge of any one of them makes the reading of other two easier. If you know Urdu, you can read 70-90% Arabic pretty easily.
