Saturday Tatar language courses opened in Antalya
October 08, 2018
Wherever we Tatars live – in Siberia, in China, in America, in Europe or in Turkey – we will always remain Tatars, even after centuries and despite the distances. If we really want to preserve our Tatar language, then it is necessary for each of us to contribute to the preservation of the language, carefully transferring knowledge from generation to generation, and the most important thing to begin with is to speak in the family in Tatar language, since the native language begins with the family . This will be the basis for the preservation of the language. It all depends on us.
Every nation has a native language. The native language of the Tatar people is Tatar. In September 2018, the Mufti of the Republic of Tatarstan Camil, Hazrat Samigullin, met with the representative of the Tatar community of Antalya Nazarova, O.Kh., during which the mufti of Tatarstan shared his experience on the opening of courses on the Tatar language “Bez – Tatarlar” in mosques of Tatarstan. Following the meeting, taking over the experience of studying the Tatar language in Tatarstan, the Tatar community of Antalya decided to organize Saturday courses on studying the Tatar language for children and adults in Antalya at mosques.
Today, a large number of Tatars live in Antalya, and in this regard, the number of people willing to learn the Tatar language is growing. The representative of the Tatar community Nazarova O.Kh. met with the Mufti of the Chief Clergy of the city of Antalya and the imam of CEMILE-YUSUF DELIALIOGLU city mosque of Antalya; following the meeting, it was decided to organize the Saturday Tatar language courses “ANA TELE” in the CEMILE-YUSUF DELIALIOGLU city mosque of Antalya.
The term of study of the Tatar language will be eight months. Lessons will be held once a week. In addition, students will be able to learn about Islamic culture. Classes are conducted by an active member of the Tatar community of Antalya – Khalida Akhmetova. Today, 06.10.2018, the first lesson of the Tatar language for children was held. The first lesson was opened by the singing of the song TUGAN TEL and then they began to study ELIFBA.
