How We Should Read the Quran

How We Should Read the Quran

When you read the Quran, do you feel a connection between you and Allah, do you know what you are reading, do you understand the impact and beauty of the words of Allah, do you implement the ayat in your daily life?

The Quran is much more than just words on a page, they are the words of Allah, and when we read the Quran it is Allah who is talking to us, telling us about heaven and hell, the stories of the Prophets and the struggles they went through.

Allah is having a conversation with you. For us to understand and memorise/recite the Quran easily, we should take from the companions, as they would learn and memorise 10 ayat and then apply them to their everyday life.

This ensures that our relationship with the Quran is strong and continues in our daily life, and that we live by the Quran (Dogan, 2015).

Another method of learning and implementing the Quran is after every ayah you read make a dua, making your bond with the Quran stronger. For example, when reading the Al-Fatiha, we say , In the name of Allah the Merciful, the Especially Merciful, ask for Allah’s mercy, (All) praise is (due) to Allah, Lord of the worlds, The Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful, The King of the Day of Recompense (Judgment Day). After this ayah make dua, asking Allah to make it easy upon you, your family and the Muslims on this day and judge you in a manner that is easy upon you.

Sometimes, you may not fully understand every surah you read, but there will be words that you will hear, such as, Jannah, Jahannam, Sayiaat (sins), etc. make dua according to these words, may Allah grant me Jannah, may Allah forgive my sins, etc.

If you do this every time you recite Quran you will feel a special relationship with, as while you Allah talks to you, you talk to Allah through dua, and you have a two way connection between you and Allah that is special between you and Allah.

May Allah make it easy upon us to read, memorise, understand and implement the Quran in our daily lives Insha`Allah.

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. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


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


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
