بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرّحيْمِ
الْحَمدُ لِلّٰهِ وَ كَفٰى وَ سَلَامٌ عَلٰى عِبادِهِ الّذِيِنَ اصْطَفٰى
Al-Qur'an is a book of knowledge and wisdom. This is where our creator is telling us how to live our lives.We recite parts of it in our salah. Understanding what we are reciting in our salah is critical. We need to learn enough Arabic to understand what our Creator is saying and to practice it. We don't have to be an Arabic or Qur'an scholar but need to know enough to understand the only connection we have with Allah SWT.
Imaam Shaafa'i raziallahu anhu said that knowledge is what is important, not what you memorize. Messenger of Allah, Peace be upon him said: Learn Arabic for three reasons. It is his language, it is the language of Qur'an and it is the language of people of jannah. Allah Ta'ala chose Arabic for His final Revelation.
Learning Arabic will also help you understand the traditions (ahadiths) which is the second most important part of our faith after Qur'an. Messenger of Allah alaihi assalatu wassalam also said: I am leaving you two things which if you hold on to, you will never be defeated and destroyed, the Qur'an and my traditions.

Contrary to popular belief, Arabic Grammar in my opinion is not difficult to learn. There are two steps for learning Arabic. First is word Morphology (Ilm us Sarf) and second is Sentence Construction (ilm un Nahw). We have books on both subjects and then there are other books on analyzing and understanding the Qur'an, available now and coming in future insha-Allah.
