I converted to Islam about 7 months back and I've been informed that in order to better understand the Qur'an (Islam's holy book), I should learn Arabic. (I'm aware it's not essential, but it wouldn't hurt; and I should at least think about it.)
However, I don't know where to start.
It's a pretty big ask, but I have to learn at least some spoken Arabic for prayer and greeting people anyway. I hear that learning enough Arabic to read and understand the Qur'an is simpler than learning Arabic in its entirety, although I'm not sure how accurate this claim is.
Thus, what are some Arabic learning resources that can help a beginner understand the Qur'an?
