Nowadays Islamic world has changed. Alhamdulillah, current technologies open new way for spreading Islam and sharing the message of Allah to a global world through facilitating of Islamic education. The changes affected the Quran learning process too. Here I describe the benefits of modern ways Quran learning.
The importance of Quran learning is confirmed by the words of the Book of Allah:
“[This is] a Book revealed to you, [O Muhammad] – so let there not be in your breast distress therefrom – that you may warn thereby and as a reminder to the believers.”
Allah gave us His wisdom through the Holly Quran. The Book is the complete life manual, which contains the direct instruction how to achieve the success in present life and hereafter. Reading the Quran is one of the holy duties for Muslims all over the world. Allah said:
“So when the Quran is recited, then listen to it and pay attention that you may receive mercy.”
Quran is the Book of Allah. It needs to be respected, in addition, we have to know the rules how to handle Quran. The rules are called Tilawa, everyone reciting the Quran have to follow them.
Wudu (Ablution). Before Quran reciting perform Wudu. Allah says:
“None touch it (Quran) except the purified.”
Once Ja‘far As-Sadiq asked his son Ismael to read the Quran. The latter Ismael said that he was not in Wudu. The father said in that case he could recite it but should not touch the writings of the Quran.
Dua. Before you start reciting the Quran you should read Dua. It allows you to keep your focus and reminds us of what we need to take from the Book of Allah.
Ask for refuge. When you start you recitation say at first: “A‘oodhubillaahi minash shaytaanir rajeem”(اَعُوْذُبااللهِمِنَالشَّيْطَانِالرَّجِيْم). It means: I seek refuge in Allah from the cursed Shaytaan. Allah says:
“So when you recite the Quran, [first] seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the expelled [from His mercy].”
All of us have to remember that Quran is not just a book. It is the Book of Allah and there are only the words come from Allah. Our beloved Prophet (pbuh) was only the messenger who provided us with the wisdom of Allah.
The Glorious Quran was sent by Allah to Muhammad (pbuh). The Prophet (pbuh) collected all wowds of Allah during twenty three years. The Holy Book contain the clear description of all aspects of Muslim life. Quran give the answers and that benefits everyone who takes to the task of reading the Holy Quran.
The Allah has protected the Quran during more than 1400 years. No doubt this revelation has remained unaltered for centuries. It is mentioned in the Quran:
“Verily, it is We Who have revealed the Quran, and of a surety, We will guard it (from corruption).” (Surah al-Hijr; Verse No. 9)
