How to Fall in Love With the Quran

WHAT CAN WE DO TO FALL IN LOVE WITH THE QURAN?

1) THINK.

Carve out some time in your schedule and relax. Think of your life and the hereafter. Think of the attachment you have for the Quran and think about what can you do in order to fall in love with it. Make a list.

2) IMPLEMENT.

Take this list and put it in practice. Read at least a page from the Quran each day. If this is too difficult for now, start out by reading a few verses after each prayer. Don’t worry if you can’t read, for Rasoolullah said: Verily the one who recites the Quran beautifully, smoothly, and precisely, he will be in the company of the noble and obedient angels. And as for the one who recites with difficulty, stammering or stumbling through its verses, then he will have twice that reward.” [Bukhari & Muslim]

3) UNDERSTAND.

Just reciting isn’t enough. You need to know the meaning of what you are reciting. If you aren’t good at Arabic, pick a translation in your language and have it at your side when reciting. Trying to understand what you are reciting is a key factor to increase your love for the Quran.

4) ENGAGE YOUR SENSES.

Engage your senses in exploring the contents of the Quran. Feel when you read, and ponder the verses. You should have a feeling of trembling when you come across the verses of warnings, happiness when you read the verses of glad tidings, and sadness when you hear about the torments. If you can feel the Quran, then you will fall more in love with it.

5) SEARCH AND SEARCH

Search for more facts from the Quran. The more you search, the more beautiful and inspiring verses you will come across. Jot down the verses and your thoughts if necessary. You will soon learn how the Quran wisely holds the truth.

6) MEMORIZE

Memorize the verses that interest you. The more you memorise, the more interested you will become until eventually you will wish to memorise the whole Quran.

And We have certainly made the Qur’an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? [54: 17]

7) INCLUDE IT IN YOUR PRAYERS.

You can recite the verses you memorised in your daily five prayers. You can also include the verses in your supplications.

8) DON’T THINK OF THE QURAN AS JUST A BOOK OF PRAYER.

If you view the Quran as just a book of prayer, your love will be limited and it will be based upon selfishness. So observe the Quran from different angles, for example as a book of prayer, a book of guidance, a book of justice, a book of legislation, or a book of science. The more you observe it from different perspectives, the more you will fall in love with it.

9) LIVE BY THE QURAN

All the above facts will be useless if you are not living by the Quran. So take every piee of advice it provides: tips that motivate, words that inspire, skills that help, and warnings that will lead you to the correct course. Take these all into yourself and live by the Quran. Become a walking Quran, like Rasoolullah did.

Ayesha (R.A) was asked about the character of the Prophet (SAWS) to which she replied: ‘His character was the Quran.’ [Bukhari]

10) STRENGTHEN YOUR FAITH

Strengthen your faith by remembering Allah often, because faith is where love comes from. The deeper your faith, the deeper you will be in love with the Quran. So be steadfast in your faith and feel the difference.

Say (O Muhammad SAW) ‘Ruh-ul-Qudus [Jibrael (Gabriel)] has brought it (the Quran) down from your Lord with truth, that it may make firm and strengthen (the Faith of) those who believe and as a guidance and glad tidings to those who have submitted (to Allah as Muslims).’ [16:102]

HOW CAN WE KNOW THAT WE ARE IN LOVE WITH THE QURAN?

1) ATTACHMENT TO ALLAH.

You will have a feeling that Allah is very close to you. You will sense His presence and it will gradually develop your closeness to Him.

2) PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT.

Your individual traits will reflect positivity and there will be a great improvement in your character.

3) CONTENTMENT AND PEACE.

You will be happy and satisfied with what you are. Tranquility will surround you and you will be ease at heart.

4) ENCOURAGE GOOD AND FORBID EVIL.

You will be conscious of evil without falling into a pit of sin and will encourage yourself to do good deeds. You will do the same when you come across a person; you will prevent him from doing sins and will motivate him to perform good deeds.

5) SELF-CONFIDENCE.

You will be full of hope, and even if you didn’t receive what you had intended to receive, you will still be hopeful of receiving a reward in the hereafter. You will attain success in everything you do. Even if you didn’t get it instantly, you will see it in the latter part of your life, or you will be sure that it will be hoarded to make you successful in the hereafter.

IN CONCLUSION

Finally, I would like to end up with these beautiful, inspiring words:

Anyone who has learned the Quran and holds it lovingly in his heart will ‘value his nights when people are asleep, his days when people are given to excess, his grief when people are joyful, his weeping when people laugh, his silence when people chatter and his humility when people are arrogant’. In other words every moment of life will be precious to him, and he should therefore be ‘gentle’, never harsh nor quarrelsome, ‘nor one who makes a clamour in the market nor one who is quick to anger. ― Ibn Mas’ud

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin.

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
