I think I've said this here before, but when Muslim children "study the Koran" they are not learning it any way we would understand the word. They do not study the grammar or meaning of classical arabic, they just learn by heart and repeat the way it sounds when it is being chanted. Effectively all they are learning is a long string of (to them) meaningless syllables. This is why the Suras of the Koran are always printed in order of their length.
