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]

    Approaching the Quran القران ? Keep this points in mind إن شاء الله

    Report bad ads?

    السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته يا أمة محمد ﷺ ،

    Whether you are a new Muslim, an old Muslim or a born-again Muslim; whether you are approaching the Quran for the first time or whether you open it every day, there are a few things that you must keep in mind in order to gain maximum benefit from the Quran.

    Quran is like an ocean of immense treasures. Some are content with the fish while others dive deep into it's beauties and uncover the precious gems and jewels hidden beneath. Which category do you wish to belong to? The fishermen group that is content with merely the barakah (blessing) and reward of recitation or the diver group that goes beyond to unveil treasures of wisdom and gain guidance, thus fulfilling the very purpose for which the Quran was sent? If you associate yourself with the second group, then please continue reading.

    Every time you open the Quran, attend a Quran class or listen to an online Tafseer and ask yourself the following questions:

    1: Why am I approaching the Quran?


    What purpose do I seek? Do I seek to merely recite mechanically with no definite purpose in mind or do I want to take guidance from the Quran and apply its teachings in my life? Take the example of a person who has lost his job. He may approach the Quran in two ways:

    Reciting Quran in order to gain a job with the blessing of Quran.

    Read the Quran to take guidance about what to do and how to cope with his present situation.

    Today, our Ummah is a host to numerous problems because the majority has diverted away from the key to all solutions: taking guidance from the Quran. If the first generation of Muslims had approached the Quran for mere blessings, Islam wouldn’t have reached us. Instead, they transformed with every verse. Each verse altered their perceptions and actions. It was Quran that changed Umar bin Khattab into Umar al Farooq (the criterion). It was the Quran that changed the simple Arab shepherds into leaders for the coming generations.

    There are numerous verses in the Quran that point to the fact that the Quran was revealed for guidance. Allah says in Surah Ali Imran:


    “This [Qur’an] is a clear statement to [all] the people and a guidance and instruction for those conscious of Allah.” (Quran 3 : 138)


    Prophet Muhammad ﷺ also described the people of Quran as those who act upon it:


    “On the Day of Resurrection, the Quran and its people, those who acted according to it, will be brought forth with Surah Baqarah and Ali Imran preceding them.” (Muslim)


    Hence, the first point to keep in mind whenever we approach the Quran is that ‘I am approaching the Quran to find guidance for my life and to act according to the teachings of Quran.’

    (To be continued إن شاء الله تعالى).

    Sister please make dua for me that Allah (Subhanahu Wa Talaa) will open my heart and make it easy for me to start reciting the Qura'an, listening to it when I am walking and to make it easier for me to be a better Muslim, ameem, yaraab.
