Peace and Greetings to All
Welcome to Ramadan the Month of the Qur'an
No person can afford to be ignorant of the Qur'an:
Some basic tips that can help us connect with the Qur'an.
1. Check Our heart
The divide between our hearts and the Qur'an will continue to exist as long as we recite or listen to it as though it were a collection of fanciful religious hymns.
2. Wudu (ablution)
Doing Wudu is good physical and mental preparation to remind us that we are not reading just another book. We are about to interact with our Creator, so being clean should be a priority when communicating with Him.
3. Start with only 5 minutes at a time
If we are not in the habit of reading regularly, one juz or one hour may be too much.
Start off with just five minutes at a time (Say after one or more of the daily the Salah).
As our Love for the Qur'an increases, In sha Allah (God willing), we should notice that those five minutes will become ten, then half an hour, then an hour, and maybe even more!
Five minutes of reading the Qur'an in Arabic is good, but we need to understand what we are reading.
The Translations of the Meaning of the Qur'an are never a substitute for the Arabic, but it will give us some meaning and the depth of that meaning will increase as our Love for the Word of God intensifies.
We should try to read the Translation of the Meaning what we read each day.
5. The Qur'an is Interactive
In an age of interactive technology, we may think books are passive and boring. But the Qur'an is not like that. Remember that when we read the Qur'an, we are interacting with Allah. He is talking to us, the more attention we give the greater the interaction we will feel.
Listening to CD's or online is not a substitute for reading or listening to a Live person but it should help us in many ways in sha Allah.
May Allah guide us all to a productive, fulfilling and enriching Ramadan with an abundance of good deeds, forgiveness, Barakah
