What does Qaa`idatun-Noor mean?
Qaa`idatun-Noor is a series of step by step lessons that teach the student how to recognize and pronounce the letters and words of the Glorious Qur'aan. It incorporates the typeset of the Madeenah Mushaf and is a variation of the original Qaaidatun-Nooriyah by Shaykh Noor Muhammad Rahimahullaah. "Qaa`idah" means "foundations" and "Noor" means "light", I believe that here it is referring to the name of the Shaykh. Wallaahu`Alim. - UmmOmar
Ash-Shaykh 'Abdur-Rahmaan al-'Adanee-may Allah protect him-advises how to study the books of Arabic Grammar Arranged and translated by Aboo Imraan al-Mekseekee
Question: We desire to study the Arabic grammar texts so what is preferable for us to begin with…al-Aajuroomeeyah (1) or Qatar-an-Nadaa (2)? Now if we begin with al-Aajuroomeeyah do we study the explanation of ash-Shaykh al-Uthaymeen (3)-rahimahullah-or with the Brother Muhammad al-Maqtaree’s footnotes (4) to al-Aajuroomeeyah “Al-Hulul-adh-Dhahabeeyah ‘ala At-Tuhfatis-Saneeyah”?
Answer: I ('Abdullah MacPhee*) asked ash-Shaykh Abdur-Rahmaan al-‘Adanee-may Allah Most High protect him-the method in studying Arabic grammar so he advised with first studying al-Aajuroomeeyah, then at-Tuhfah then Mulha-tul-‘Iraab (5) then al-Mutammimah (6) then Qatar an-Nada then Ibn‘Aqeel (7) and so forth.
(1) Al-Aajuroomeeyah is a classical text on Arabic grammar written for the beginning student of the language and authored by Aboo Abdillah bin Muhammad bin Muhammad bin Dawood as-Sanhaajee known as Ibn Aajurroom-rahimahullah 672-723 A.H.
(2) Qatar-an-Nadaa written by Jamaal-ud-Deen Abdillah bin Yusuf bin Hishaam al-Ansaaree-rahimahullah 708-761 A.H. Ibn Khaldoon-rahimahullah said of him, “We were in the Maghrib (Morocco) when we heard of a scholar of the Arabic language being present in Misr (Egypt) known as Ibn Hishaam moreknowledgeable of an-Nahwu than as-Seebawayah.” Reference the explanation of Qatar-an-Nada by ash-Shaykh, al-Alaamah Muhammad Muhyee-ud-Deen Abdul-Hameed page 9.
(3) Known as “Sharh-ul-Aajroomeeyah” and available for purchase by our brothers at Salafi Library at : http://www.salafilibrary.com/slib/

(5) Mulha-tul-‘Iraab is a poem that teaches Arabic grammar written by Aboo Muhammad al-Qaasim bin ‘Alee al-Hareeree al-Basree-rahimahullah 446-516 A.H.(6) Al-Mutammimah is an explanation to al-Aajuroomeeyah written with examples to each of Ibn Aajurroom’s sections of his text.

The /hamza/ cannot be written standing alone. It always needs a companion, called a "chair" أ on which "to sit".
* hamza/ followed by /fatha/ yelds/ aa.. ءَ
* hamza/ followed by kasra/ yelds/ ee.. ءِ
* hamza/ followed by damma/ yelds/ oo.. ءُ
This general rule is true in most cases. However there are special cases that allow the hamza to be written without a chair.
Shaykh al-Islam Taqi Al-Deen Ibn Taymiya (d.728H)
As for becoming accustomed to talking to one another in a language other than Arabic, which is the symbol of Islam and the language of the Qur‘an, so that this becomes a habit in the land, with one’s family and household members, with one’s friends, in the marketplace, when addressing government representatives or authority figures or when speaking to people of knowledge, undoubtedly this is makrooh (disliked), because it involves being like the non-Arabs, which is makrooh, as stated previously.
Hence when the early Muslims went to live in Syria and Egypt, where the people spoke Byzantine Greek, and in ’Iraq and Khurasan, where the people spoke Persian, and North Africa (al-Maghrib) where the people spoke Berber, they taught the people of those countries to speak Arabic, so that Arabic became the prevalent language in those lands, and all the people, Muslim and Muslims alike, spoke Arabic. Such was also the case in Khurasan in the past, then they became lax with regard to the language and got used to speaking Farsi until it became prevalent and Arabic was forgotten by most of them. Undoubtedly this is disliked.
The best way is to become accustomed to speaking Arabic so that the young people will learn it in their homes and schools, so that the symbol of Islam and its people will prevail. This will make it easier for the people of Islam to understand the Qur’an and Sunna, and the words of the Salaf, unlike a person who gets used to speaking one language, then wants to learn another, and finds it difficult.
Know that being used to using a language has a clear and strong effect on one’s thinking, behaviour and religious commitment. It also has an effect on making one resemble the early generations of this Umma, the Companions and the Tabi’een. Being like them improves one’s thinking, religious commitment and behaviour.
Moreover, the Arabic language itself is part of Islam, and knowing Arabic is an obligatory duty. If it is a duty to understand the Qur‘an and Sunna, and they cannot be understood without knowing Arabic, then the means that is needed to fulfil the duty is also obligatory.
There are things which are obligatory on all individuals (fard ‘ayn), and others which are obligatory on the community or Umma (fard kifayah, i.e., if some people fulfil them the rest are relieved of the obligation).
This is the meaning of the report narrated by Abu Bakr Ibn Abi Shaybah who said: ‘Isa Ibn Yunus told us from Thawri from ‘Umar Ibn Yazid that ‘Umar wrote to Abu Musa al-Ash’ari and said: “Learn the Sunna and learn Arabic; learn the Qur‘an in Arabic for it is Arabic.”
According to another hadith narrated from ‘Umar, he said: “Learn Arabic for it is part of your Religion, and learn how the estate of the deceased should be divided (fara‘id) for these are part of your Religion.”
This command of ‘Umar, to learn Arabic and the Shari’a combines the things that are needed, for Religion involves understanding words and actions. Understanding Arabic is the way to understand the words of Islam, and understanding the Sunna is the way to understand the actions of Islam…”
