Running Away From the Qur’aan

Question: What is your advice – O Shaykh – for those who go without reading the Qur’aan for a month, or even many months, and who have no excuse for such behaviour? However, you will find some of them reading those magazines that contain no benefit for them, and following them up closely!

Answer: It is recommended for every Believing man and woman to recite the Book of Allah often, with due contemplation and understanding. This may be done by using a copy of the Qur’aan or from one’s memory. Allaah – the Most High – said:

This is a Book which We have sent down to you, full of blessings, that you may ponder over its Verses, and that men of understanding may remember.” [Soorah Saad 38:29]. And: “Indeed those who recite the Book of Allaah and offer the Prayer perfectly and spend in charity out of what We have provided for them – secretly and openly – hope for a sure trade-gain that will never perish. That He may pay the their wages in full and give them even more out of His Grace. Indeed, He is Oft-Forgiving, ready to appreciate good deeds.[Soorah Fatir 35:29-30]

The aforementioned recitation of the Qur’aan includes both reciting and acting upon it. The recitation is to be done with contemplation and understanding of it. Sincerity to Allaah is a means of complying with and acting upon the Qur’aan, and its recitation contains a great reward – as the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam said:

“Recite the Qur’aan. For on the Day of Resurrection, it shall come as an intercessor for its companion.” This was recorded by Muslim in his Saheeh (no. 804). The Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam also said: “The best of you is he who learns the Qur’aan and teaches it.” This was recorded by al-Bukhaaree in his Saheeh (9/66).

Another narration states:

“Whoever reads one harf (letter) of the Qur’aan shall receive a good deed and ten good deeds similar to it. I do not say that Alif Laam Meem is a harf, but Alif is a harf, Laam is a harf and Meem is a harf.” [Saheeh; Recorded by at-Tirmidhee (no. 2912), who authenticated it, from the hadeeth of `Abdullaah ibn Mas`ood, radhiallaahu `anhu].

The Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam said to `Abdullaah ibn Amr ibn al-`Aas:

“Complete the recitation of the Qur’aan once a month.” He said: I am able to do more than that. So he said: “Then complete its recital once in seven days.” [al-Bukhaaree (no. 5054)]

The Companions used to complete the entire Qur’aan once every seven days.

So I advise all the readers of the Qur’aan to increase in their reading of it, with contemplation and understanding it, along with sincerity to Allaah in this – with the purpose of learning and benefiting from the Qur’aan. They should read the entire Qur’aan once a month. If, however, they are able to do more than this without any difficulty, then they should complete it in less than this time. However, it is best not o complete it in less than three days, since this is the least amount of time that the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam mentioned to `Abdullaah ibn `Amr ibn al-`Aas. This is because if it is read in less than three days, the person becomes hasty and lacks thought and concentration…”

The Qur’an Made Easy

I know, I know. You’ve tired to memorize the Qur’an before. You had such determination. No one was going to stop you this time. At last! The verses that eluded you for so long were now yours for the taking.

You started. Day 1 was great!

Day 2 was good.

Day 3 was so-so.

Day 4 was a weekend day so you gave yourself the day off.

Day 5 was another weekend day (day off).

Days 6-9 saw the dismantling of your determination and quiet exit from another attempt to memorize (I hope my wife doesn’t say anything to embarrass me)

Sound familiar? I know all too well! Being a native English speaker, the Qur’an was always difficult for me to memorize because I didn’t adequately understand what was being said.

We at E-jaazah.com are endeavoring to make the studying of this glorious book easy for the non-Arabs. We are offering Tafsir, implementation advice, and a user-friendly way to memorize the ayats as effortlessly as possible insha Allaah.

Here is how it works:

Step 1: Join the Class: http://e-jaazah.com/?eps=episode-1304866136

Step 2: After watching the class listen to the “Memorization Helper”. The Shaykh recites the verses and you recite with him. Only focus on the verses covered in class so as to not overburden yourself and be discouraged. The recitation is in an mp3 format so you can listen and recite along while you are in your car, on the train, on a horse (if you have one!) or anywhere else. Listen to a sample here.

Step 3: If available, spend a few minutes explaining to your wife and or children what these verses mean after dinner. Don’t spend too much time as they may not be accustomed to the change in you and you may want to introduce them slowly to keep them fully interested.

Q & A

Question: What am I going to get out of this class, when I’m so busy????

Answer: Insha Allaah you will have a grasp on the ayats that you never had before as you will not only learn the meanings of the ayats from the scholars of Tafsir (Ibn Kathir, Qurtobee, and others) but you’ll also be in a position to implement them into your life. This will give the Qur’an a whole new station in your life that you may never have had before as you will:

1. Learn the Tafsir of the verses in a user-friendly video

2. Endeavor to implement the verses in your life through your understanding of them

3. Memorize the verses in a way that caters to the Muslim with a busy schedule

Question: How long is it going to take? I’ve started and stopped so many times!

Answer: The classes are about 45 minutes each. The special memorization helper mp3 is around 20 minutes (depending on the ayats covered). However, there is no real need to be sitting and listening for twenty minutes. You can be driving in the car, cooking dinner, or doing both (if you have a grill in the back seat). Classes are once a week, so it will not be a big burden to you insha Allaah.

Question: Where can I find these classes?

Answer: E-jaazah.com Click here to start!

Question: How much does it cost?

Answer: You must agree to make dua for all of the staff and teachers at E-jaazah.com if you benefit from it.

Question: What Surah will we be studying?

Answer: Surah Maryam

Question: Why Surah Maryam?

Answer: Most of the brothers and sisters at E-jaazah are ex-Christians and seem to have a love for the story of ‘Eisa (Jesus). Knowing Surah Maryam is also a great opportunity to help others learn the true nature of ‘Eisa and his Mother (peace and blessings upon the both).

Question: How many classes will there be?

Answer: There will be 9 classes to cover the entire Surah insha Allaah.

Question: How often are the classes?

Answer: Once a week.

Question: I’m really busy these days? How do I know I can make the classes?

Answer: The classes are pre-recorded so that you can cover the material at your leisure. The program is designed for the busy person to learn on a high level.
