Teaching the Quran in the true essence
When the Holy Prophet says that we are the best Muslims if we learn and teach the Quran, he does not mean that we should only learn it by heart or teach it to our students as rote learning. He means that we should “understand” the word of Allah along with learning it. That is why Allah has placed such a great importance on teaching the Holy Quran.
The Quran and its Moral Teachings
Morality is a very broad area that exists and in the Quran it is of supreme importance as Allah talks about it again and again. Morality in the Quran is mentioned in every form, be it of an individual nature or a public nature. The Holy Quran was sent down upon the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and he has mentioned morality when he taught the teachings of the Quran.
Compassion in the Quran
The Quran is such a loving, beautiful book of the word of Allah that it is full of all the good there is in the world. It is full of pleasantries, advices of kindness, advice of doing good and forgiving and most of all advice of compassion. Allah has asked us in His own words to be good people. Good Muslims. Good human beings. And in doing so we are not only listening to Allah but we are also making our Hereafter better and better, so much so that it will take us to Jannah.
Our Destiny in the Quran
Much has been said about our destiny and the words Allah has mentioned in the Quran to explain it to us. Many of us think that since Allah has said that He alone is the one to determine our destiny and what life has to offer (which He indeed does) there is no point to do what Allah has asked us to do, nor to pray, nor to go on the straight path that Allah has decreed for us.
Reading the Quran Once a Year versus Everyday
Ramadan is quickly approaching and like always all of us plan to read the Quran diligently every single day of the month in order to receive maximum benefits that the Holy month has to offer to us. And so why mustn’t we take full advantage of the opportunity being offered to us to gain maximum rewards? Reading the Quran in the month of Ramadan gives tremendous benefits because the month is one in which the shaitaan is caged and Allah promises to forgive our sins if only we repent.
Laziness in reciting Quran
Lots of Muslims, while they are excellent in keeping up with their daily prayers 5 times a day and other fundamentals of Islam, somehow quite lack the enthusiasm to read the Quran daily as well. This should be quite a concern for them especially when they give invalid excuses for not being able to read the Quran regularly.
