Is it necessary for a Muslim to learn Arabic?

Hi, I am 20yo I don’t know how to read Arabic, and cannot read Quran in Arabic. But I do read it in English translation. Do you think it is necessary for a Muslim to learn to read Arabic? Should I start learning as well? I’ve tried earlier but I find it very difficult.

The majority of the world’s Muslims do not actually speak or read Arabic. But if you have the ability and free time to learn it, then that is a good thing and will increase your ability to progress in your faith. You can take it easy and start with simple courses for beginners, or watch Arabic cartoons or TV shows (I learned Arabic from cartoons as a child–Arabic is my 4th language).
