Dear Visitor, Assalamu’alikum (Peace be on you).
Welcome to My URDU website, Urdu is the sweetest and widely spoken/understood language of the Indian subcontinent (India, Pakistan, and neighbouring territories). It is also widely spoken by the Urdu Diaspora in various parts of the world, particularly Middle East, Europe and Americas. Urdu comes under Indo-Aryan group of languages and Urdu along with Hindi (mutually intelligible and follows same grammar with mostly intersecting vocabulary) is the third largest spoken language in the world as a native language.
Intended Audience & Goal of this website:
Urdu, with its rich heritage in poetry and use in Bollywood dialogues and Songs has always sparked interest amongst the masses. But there are no easy ways to learn this language on internet. Hence, primary Goal of this website is to teach the audience to Read and Write the (abjad) Script of Urdu. Any person who can speak (& Understand) Urdu and any affiliated Indian language like Hindi or Punjabi can use this website to learn Urdu. Even for the speakers of other languages, effort is made to explain the grammar in simplest form with maximum possible vocabulary and meanings.
De-Facto Language of Islam in Indian Subcontinent:
With the continuous efforts of Sufi Saints & Islamic Scholars, Islam has reached every nook and corner of Indian subcontinent. And these Sufi saints played a major role in evolution & development of Urdu, by adopting it as their language to reach the masses and to teach them the religion of Islam. As a result of which, for centuries, Urdu is being used for documenting & translating all religious works of Islam. And for many Muslims who cannot read Urdu, they are missing this opportunity to make use of this vast amount of religious work in Urdu. This website is my humble service for my fellow Muslim brothers and Sisters so that this ocean of religious work in Urdu is made accessible to them by learning Urdu.
