Assalaamu 3laykum dear respected teachers,

May Allah reward you immensely with jannatul firdaus for your works.  My question is regarding the viability of learning mutoon like the Shatibiyyah although one may not be fluent in Arabic.  Alhamdulillah, with Allah's help, a brother of mine has able to memorize the Quran and has very basic understanding of the Quran in terms of vocabulary and grammar (although it's at a very simple and basic).  He has been also been able to memorize the Shaatibiyyah, and he is asking whether or not shuyuukh of qira'aat traditionally take students who aren't Arabic speakers to teach them such mutoon?  For example, would a shaykh who has an ijazah in the Shaatibiyyah be able to teach it to English speaking students, although they would memorize the text in Arabic while the teacher would explain the text in English? 

Jazaakumullahu khayr, and please make duaa for us and the rest of the Muslims.

Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
And may Allah ta'aalaa grant you likewise.  
There is no doubt the mutoons (learning poems) are essential tools in learning the Qur'anic sciences from basic tajweed up to the 10 Qiraa'aat and then the 'ashr al-kubraa.  The learning poems are a challenge for Arabs and non-Arabs a like, and it needs devotion and perseverance to complete.  Your friend has done well, masha' Allah tabaarak Allah, may Allah continue to grant him beneficial knowledge and make him a light and source of knowledge for the Muslims.
If one does not know enough Arabic to study the matn's meaning in an Arabic setting, then he/she needs to look for a sheikh with an ijaazah and who speaks a language they are fluent in and learn from this sheikh.  There are a few available in English now, al-hamdu lillah. 

May Allah increase you in all khair and return the Muslims to the book of Allah. 
Wa iyyaakum. 
Wa assalaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.
