Benefits of reading the Quran

By reading and reflecting on the Quran, one fulfils an obligation and is rewarded for it.

By SANWAL HUSSAIN



INDEED, to reflect on Allah’s verses is a form of worship that will draw one close to Him. The Quran is not a book like any other; it is a timeless guide for life, death and the Hereafter.



Therefore, it necessitates the reader returning to the early narrations of those who witnessed its revelation and heard its explanation by the one deputed by Allah to explain His words to humanity. So every sincere Muslim who hopes to earn Allah’s love by reciting and reflecting on His Book should hold on to the meanings explained by the Prophet of Islam (PBUH), his companions and the early scholars of Islam.



Reciting and reflecting on the Quran has tremendous benefits. Each of them explained stands as an encouragement to reading and trying to understand the Holy Quran. The Prophet of Islam summarised the faith as naseehah (sincerity). When Hazrat Tameem ibn Aws inquired, “To whom?” he said: “…

"Eleven Hints for Life"

1. It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return.
But what is more painful is to love someone and never
find the courage to let that person know how you feel.

2. A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who
means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was
never meant to be and you just have to let go.

3. The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a
porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away
feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

4. It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose
it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been
missing until it arrives.

5. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an
hour to like someone, and a day to love someone-but it
takes a lifetime to forget someone.

6. Don't go for looks, they can deceive. Don't go for wealth,
even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you
smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day
seem bri…
