“My dear Reader, 

At the outset, I express My thanks to you for making Me so happy in the month of Ramadhaan, giving Me lots of kisses, holding Me to your heart most of the time, giving Me all your love and care, reading a Page here, memorizing a Surah there; My happiness reached such a level that I wonder whether I was lucky to have Myself in Your hand or were you so Fortunate to have Me in Your hand. 

After finding so much care and love from you, I now weep in solitude…

Imagine that you are the apple of everyone’s eyes. All Muslims in the world like you so much. People come to you and talk to you so affectionately; they shower all their love and warmth. They even touch you with respect. They love you like anything…

…And then, suddenly they stop coming to you, no one cares to talk to you, no one bothers to look at you even. Imagine, how will you feel?

Take this as the Cry of Your Friend. If you cry, won’t you feel the need to have the company and support of your friend?

Have empathy on Me and take time to read these feelings of Mine – feelings flowing straight from My heart:

1. Dear Reader, as Ramadhaan drew to a close, some of you started keeping Me aside signalling to Me that My days of frequent reading and remembrance is over and that I would have to go back to the same bookshelf or to that dust-stricken part of your cupboard! Or to that very spot of your bookshelf where I was kept as a show-piece before Ramadhaan. 😦

I hate being left alone. I hate being kept in an unreachable spot.

As a matter of fact, I hate being given so much attention, care and love for ONE FULL MONTH, and then SUDDENLY get discarded and carelessly kept aside for the rest of the year!

After ‘respectfully’ and beautifully wrapping Me, most of you have kept Me in an unreachable spot of your home. At such a height that even if your spouse wants to take Me, he/she can’t reach Me!

And you have taught so much Adab (manners) to your children that they are scared to touch Me even. You have made Me so sacred!! A Touch-Me-Not-type! What an extremist dad/mom you are!!

2. Dear Reader, Allah tells You in Surah Al An-aam:

“Those to whom We have given the Scripture recognize it as they recognize their [own] sons. Those who will lose themselves [in the Hereafter] do not believe.” (Surah al An-aam 6: 2)

Will you recognize your son/daughter only for one month and not own or refuse to show possession for the rest of the eleven months?

I know you will not do that. In case some father or mother among you behaves like that, then how will their sons or daughter feel? Won’t they feel that they are born to a parent who is so careless and numb towards their very children?

3. Dear Reader, most of You call non-Muslims as ‘Kaafirs’ because they don’t believe in Me. But do you know some kaafirs have understood My worth, and thus they say:

41:26

‘And those who disbelieve say, “Do not listen to this Qur’an and speak noisily during [the recitation of] it that perhaps you will overcome.” (Surah Fussilat 41: 26)

So the Kaafirs tell others not to listen to Me and not to show any attention to Me because they want to gain upper hand!

They know very well that they will lose all power and status should they start listening to Me. They know very well that I – the Word of God – remain uppermost!

You are not a kaafir, alhamdulillah. But then what do you do?

By keeping Me aside until next Ramadhaan and by ‘respectfully’ placing Me in one corner of your house while not reaching Me daily, you have created silence.  The noise that comes from dead silence is more deafening, My dear!

4. My dear Reader, I have been sent to this world so that I can take you out from the depths of darkness to the Light with His permission, to give radiance in Your life, to add meaning to Your existence:

“It is He who sends down upon His Servant [Muhammad] verses of clear evidence that He may bring you out from darknesses into the light. And indeed, Allah is to you Kind and Merciful.” (Surah al Hadeed 57: 9)

Did Allah say that He has sent Me ONLY FOR THE MONTH OF Ramadhaan? That you don’t need Light in other months?

Please understand that by DISCONNECTING ME, you are SHUTTING DOWN the LIGHT SYSTEM; Remember, You just can’t find Light anywhere!

I am the Light House in the voyage of Your life’s journey.

Read Me daily, I will give you warmth.

Put Me into practice, your life will become meaningful.

Try to understand Me, I will take you to the heights of glory. Not just in this world. In the world to come as well.

Hmmm…I felt that You murmured just now saying that you know all these from before!!

This precisely is the cause of My weeping: That you know everything and yet You do not put My teachings into practice! That you behave well in Ramadhaan and show your real colour in other months!

5. Dear Reader, Can I ask one simple question, please?

In Ramadhaan you were eating a lot. And you were reading Me a lot. Alhamdulillah.

After Ramadhaan, you left Me and still holding on to food, food….. Why?

Why can’t You leave food as You left Me after Ramadhaan?

I know very well that if One stops eating, he will die!

But did you ever realise that your spirituality too needs nourishment? That You need to feed your soul daily as You feed Your belly daily!

And if you distance Me from yourself, where from You will find the Nourishment?

In the Sight of Allah, what matters is your spiritual weight, not your physical weight! Your spiritual beauty, not your physical beauty!

Take care of Me, everything will take care of itself.

6. Dear Reader, when the imaam in Taraweeh did the khatam of Qur’an recitation, you thought that the Recitation has come to a khatam. Finished!! You gave a sigh of relief. Alhamdulillah! the long standing in Taraweeh is over!

Did you realize that by reacting like that you made Me sad and Shaytaan happy?

You thought that you did all your ibaadah in laylatul Qadr and you achieved everything, that’s it.

You ‘used’ Me in Ramadhaan and now, you are distancing yourself from Me.

Am I like something to be used and thrown? 😦

If that is your choice and approach towards Me, do you think Allah will help you?

Please don’t fall into trap laid by Shaytaan whose chains are opened once Ramadhaan goes!

7. My dear Reader, I wish you become a part of this blessed community:

5:83

“And when they hear what has been revealed to the Messenger, you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of what they have recognized of the truth. They say, “Our Lord, we have believed, so register us among the witnesses.” Surah al Maa’idah 5: 83)

Did you listen to what Allah is saying in this ayah?

That the eyes of the true Believers overflow with tears because of recognising the Truth that has come from Allah.

How tragic and ironic it is that in Your case, it is the Qur’an that weeps!! 😦 😦 

8. Dear Reader, in My Pages, You will notice that Allah gives many examples for You to ponder over and reflect upon. Here is one example for those having a brain that thinks and a heart that feels:

59:21

“If We had sent down this Qur’an upon a mountain, you would have seen it humbled and coming apart from fear of Allah. And these examples We present to the people that perhaps they will give thought.” (Surah al Hashr 59: 21)

Did you get that?

If I were to have come down upon a mountain, that mighty creation would have split apart and humbled itself! Subhanallaah!

You are a human being, and have no reaction whatsoever with regard to Me and My message!

No fear of accountability. No feeling of any responsibility!

My message lies neglected. My treasure left unexplored! 😦

9. My dear Reader,You may recall that when the Imaam was saying this du’aa in Arabic in witr prayer, ‘O Allah, make the Qur’an, the spring of our heart’, you were crying and saying Aameen, Aameen.

And when the Imaam was saying, ‘O Allah, make the Qur’an a proof for us, not against us’ you were saying Aameen.

Was that spring thing only for Ramadhaan?

You wanted Me and the Malaa’ika (the Angels) to give proof in your favour only in Ramadhaan?

When you are not reading Me daily or when you are so careless and negligent towards Me, how do you expect Me to speak to Allah in Your favour?

You need to say Aameen daily in your real life. You need to put Me into practice. Only then I will become a Proof for you. Otherwise, you know very well that I don’t lie.

I will testify against you before Allah who already has clear knowledge about You. And the One to Whom I was revealed (Prophet Muhammad, Peace be upon him) will complain to Your Lord saying:

25:30

“And the Messenger has said, “O my Lord, indeed my people have taken this Qur’an as [a thing] abandoned.” (Surah al Furqaan 25: 30)

Dear Muslims, don’t force Me and the Rasoolullah to do that. May Allah save you from destruction. Aameen.

10. Dear Reader, I want you to understand that as a Muslim, YOU OWE Five Obligations towards the Qur’an:

  1. to believe in the Qur’an.

  2. to read it.

  3. to understand it.

  4. to act upon its teachings, and

  5. to convey its message and teachings to others.

Let Me take Your leave by quoting this ayah:

47:24

“Then do they not reflect upon the Qur’an, or are there locks upon [their] hearts?” (Surah Muhammad 47: 24)

Ramadhaan will come, Ramadhaan will go!

But do you know when You will die??

That’s the problem. The real problem.

And if You die while You’ve discarded Me from Your life, think what will be Your end?

So please don’t leave Me. If you have left Me, do come back to Me. And Give Me the same love you gave Me in Ramadhaan.

I am Your Guide in this world, and I will be Your Intercessor in the Hereafter, Inshaa’Allah.  

Always Remember: Ditching Me is to Ditch One’s Success! It is as simple as it is!

Thank you for taking time to read My plea.

Your Friend & Reminder,

Al Qur’an Al Kareem”.
