Question

Is it permissible to learn Hebrew?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and messenger.

 

If you want to learn Hebrew for the purpose of reading about the conspiracies of Jews against Muslims and defending Muslims against such conspiracies, then this is permissible; it is even Islamically required.

Allaah Knows best.
