The Qur’anic Path

By Sayyid Abul A’la Maududi

‘…but all that you may do to understand the Quran is not enough. If you want to identify with the spirit of the Quran, you must practically involve [yourself] with the struggle to fulfill its mission. For the Quran is not a book of abstract theories and cold ideas, which one can grasp while seated in a cosy arm chair. Nor is it merely a religious book like other religious books, whose meanings can be grasped in seminaries and oratories. Continue reading

Improve your relationship with the Qur’an

Are you one of those people who rarely touches the Qur’an? Or do you read daily but don’t find it is having the impact on you that it should? Whatever the case may be, these are some simple tips that can help you connect with the Qur’an.

  1. Before you touch it, check your heart. The key to really benefiting from the Qur’an is to check your heart first, before you even touch Allah’s book. Ask yourself, honestly, why you are reading it. Is it to just get some information and to let it drift away from you later? Remember that the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was described by his wife as a “walking Qur’an”: in other words, he didn’t just read and recite the Qur’an, he lived it.

The Obligations Muslims Owe the Qur’an

By Maulana Israr Ahmed

The pathetic and disastrous condition of the Muslim Ummah throughout the world is due to the abandoning of the Qur’an by the Muslims. The attitude of indifference that we constantly show towards the last of the Allah’s Revelations, along with our hypocritical lip-service, is tantamount to ridiculing it. Instead, we must clearly understand our responsibilities towards the Qur’an and try our very best in fulfilling them. We can neither expect any improvement in our worldly state of affairs nor hope for salvation in the Hereafter, unless we carry out all the obligations that we owe the Qur’an.

Five things that the Qur’an demands from every Muslim are as follows:

  1. The Muslim is required to believe in the Qur’an,

  2. He is required to read it,

  3. He is required to understand it,

  4. He is required to act upon its teachings, and

  5. He is required to convey its teachings to others. Continue reading

Believers as defined in Surah Al Mu’minoon

By Sheik Jamal Ed-Din Zarabozo

In the Qur’an, Almighty Allah describes the believers “Al-Mu’minun” with many characteristics. At the beginning of Surat Al-Mu’minun some of these great attributes are mentioned that draw a vivid picture of the believers and their reward. In this article the writer is discussing only three of these attributes digressing into the deeper meanings of the verses that portrait a lucid picture of the believers.

Distinguishing Attributes of Unique Individuals

One of Almighty Allah’s great miracles that He bestowed upon Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was aiding him with an elite community of believers“Mu’minun” who fully understood the meaning of faith. The deeds of the early Qur’anic generation of believers were governed by their righteous belief and virtuous attributes.
