The MOST Read Book, the LEAST understood Book!

Ramadhaan and Qur’an. Qur’an and Muslims. Muslims and Ramadhaan. A perfect combination and a classic equation, right?

What do you have to say about this equation: Qur’an and understanding. Understanding and Muslims. Muslims and Qur’an. 

The most read Book. The most kissed Book. The most memorized Book. The most respected Book. That is the glorious Qur’an.

.…..And, unfortunately, the least understood Book as well!!

As Ustadh Khurram Murad, author of the famous book Way to the Qur’an puts its:

What a tragic misfortune it would be if you came to the Qur’an and went away empty-handed – soul untouched, heart unmoved, life unchanged; ‘they went out as they came in’.

Many of us do read and read and read the Qur’an in the month of Ramadhaan. What about understanding? Reflection?

The big question is: how many of we Muslims do even consider reading Qur’an with understanding? 

Let me quote Ustadh Khurram Murad once again:

The Qur’an’s blessings are limitless, but the measure of your taking from it depends entirely upon the capacity and the suitability of the receptacle you bring to it. So, at the very outset, make yourself more deeply aware of what the Qur’an means to you and what it demands of you; and make a solemn determination to recite the Qur’an in an appropriate manner, so that you may be counted among ‘Those whom We have given the Book, they recite it as it ought to be recited; it is they who believe in it’ (Surah al-Baqarah 2: 121).

May Allah give us the Tawfeeq and Hidayah to read, understand, propagate and live by the Qur’an.

Jazakallaahu Khayra.
