The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful. [2:185]

    Finnishing Qur'an Without a Teacher? (OP)


    As'salamo alaikum//Hello there. I hope you are having an amazing day. I have been on this website for a few days due to different issues (which can not be solved that easily, but I have had amazing support which actually helped me cope; thank you so much!), but this one is a rather straight-forward question; will Allah accept it if I finished the Holy Qur'an without a teacher?

    Let me provide some clarification: ever since me and my siblings started reading the Qur'an, it has been our father who assigned us to read pages and then asked us to read it aloud to him so that he could point where we had made mistakes. However, being a working man (goes to work at 6-7 in the morning, and comes home at 6-7 in the evening), he just can not keep up. As for my mother, her state of health prevents her from taking over this task. They will not hire a teacher because there are no female Qur'an teachers available here (I hope you understand? Both me and my sister are females, so yeah). My sister is the only one of my siblings and I who has finished the Qur'an at least once (when she was 15. I am 14 right now, will turn 15, and am embarrassed that I have not even finished it once). So, I have decided to read it by myself and not check with a teacher for mistakes. My father says it will not count, but I still want to try.

    I hope I made sense. I really want to strengthen my connection with God. Apologies for how crammed the text appears. Thank you!

    Ameen. Thank you for the sympathy.

    Your heart is in the right place; you are still trying to understand in difficult circumstances. In an ideal world, there would be a gifted sister living next door to you, and she would be the best teacher. Sadly; these ideal circumstances rarely happen in life, we have to accept what we have, and do our best. Pray for the wisdom to understand the will of Allah, pray for the help to do the will of Allah.

    This website helped me be positive. So thank you, really. I am trying my best to sort it out. In the end, if there is no hope, I will just read the Qur'an alone and hope Allah's mercy is with me.

She seemed to have a real passion for her work, sadly, I did not have the opportunity to ask her for any advice on becoming a doctor. It is reassuring to know that even women from Syria can become doctors.

    Wow, this part was really helpful. I am glad other women have successfully become doctors -- gives me hope, plus evidence to show to my parents.
