Ramadan 2006 (Sunnah : The Perfect Example)


Reciting the Holy Quran

The Holy month of Ramadan has almost come to an end. Only the lucky ones will have the pleasure of enjoying this blessed month again next year. Although the month of Ramadan is ending it doesn’t mean that we stop reciting the Holy Quran as well. We must make it a daily routine in our lives to recite the Holy Quran (even a few verses) daily.

No blessings:

Hazrat Anas (R.A) and Hazrat Jabir (R.A) have reported that Holy Prophet (S.A.W) said, “O Muslims, make it a point to recite the Quran regularly in your house, because the house is which the Quran is not recited remains devoid of blessings”.

Teach your child and get sins forgiven:

Hazrat Anas (R.A) narrates that, “Whoever teaches their children how to recite the Quran will have his past sins forgiven”. (Tabrani)

Clean the rust from the heart:

Hazrat AbdAllah Ibn Umar (R.A) narrates, “Rasoolullah (S.A.W) said, “The hearts get rusted, as does iron with water”. When the Sahaba (R.A) asked, “What could cleanse the hearts again?” The Messenger (S.A.W) said: “Frequent remembrance of death and recitation of the Holy Quran””.

Ten rewards for each letter:

Holy Prophet (S.A.W) has said, “Whoever reads one letter of the book of Allah is credited with one blessing and one blessing is equal to ten rewards. I do not say ‘Alif Laam Meem’ is one letter, but Alif is one letter, Laam is one letter and Meem is one letter”. (Tirmidhi)

Manners of reading the Holy Quran:

  • To ensure that one’s body and clothes are clean.
  • To ensure that the place where the Quran is to be recited, together with its surroundings are clean (i.e. bathroom).
  • To make wuzu before recitation.
  • To place the Quran in a slightly higher position.
  • To refrain from talk of any sort whilst reading the Quran.
