Connect With the Quran

Sheikh Yahya Ibrahim discusses how we can connect with the Quran, especially for the people who don’t understand Arabic. A common unknown truth, is that even those with Arabic as their first language, don’t always understand it completely. Quran is not always meant to be self-evident and the intricacies within it require research to develop a deep understanding. If you approach the Quran with sincerity, read it and learn it, then it will be beneficial. It is reserved in its benefit for those who approach it with a pious sincerity.
This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah – Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them, And who believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith]. Those are upon [right] guidance from their Lord, and it is those who are the successful.” (Quran, 2:2-5)
Allah says that Quran is a thikr, a reminder, for the following types of people:
  1. The one who approaches it with an open heart
  2. Those who gives it their full attention & study it
  3. Those who witness its truth whilst learning it
By combining these 3, you will be able to connect with the Quran, be guided to the right path and be successful Next, you must implement a system when memorising the Quran and make it a daily ritual for you to open and read it. A day should never go by without you reading at least one verse from the Quran. Finally, do not forget the reward of reading Quran, especially for those who struggle and stumble when reading. It was narrated from Aisha that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
The one who is proficient with the Qur’an will be with the noble and righteous scribes (the angels), and the one who reads it and stumbles over it, finding it difficult, will have a double reward.”
May Allah make us from the companions of the Quran and make our hearts connect with the Quran and bless us with the light of it, in this life and the next.
