RECITATION IN MELODIOUS VOICE

THE STATUS OF QURAN

“The best of you

are those who

learn the Quran

and teach it to

others.”

“ Recite the Quran

because it will

come as an

intercessor on the

day of judgment”.

The importance of the Quran is so great that the Prophet

sallallahu alaihe wassallam said:

RECITATION OF CERTAIN VERSES

BEFORE GOING TO BED

It will recommend its people before the Lord.

Intercede for its companions

Envy is permissible only in respect of two men: one whom Allah gives his book, and who stands reciting it day and night, and a man whom Allah gives wealth, which he gives in charity day and night.

The believer who recites the Qur‟an is like a citrus fruit- its fragrance is pleasing and its taste is sweet.

Allah exalts some people and lowers others by this Book

THE REWARD FOR THOSE WHO

RECITE AND PRACTICE THE QUR‟ AN

“And We send down of the Qur'an that which is ahealing and a mercy to those who believe (in IslamicMonotheism and act on it), and it increases theZaalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers) nothing but

loss”. [al-Isra‟ 17:82]

HEALING FOR THE HEARTS

“O mankind! There has come to you a good advice

from your Lord (i.e. the Qur'an, enjoining all that is

good and forbidding all that is evil), and a healing

for that which is in your hearts”. [Yoonus 10:57]

The Qur‟an is the best guidebook on how tostructure our life.

The Qur‟an tells us how to communicatewith the source of all intelligence and thesource of all life.

The Qur‟an tells us who Allah is, by what name we should address Him, and the way in which to communicate with Him.

GUIDANCE FOR THE BELIEVERS

“Verily, We have sent down to you (O Muhammad)

the Book (this Qur'an) for mankind in truth. So

whosoever accepts the guidance, it is only for his

own self; and whosoever goes astray, he goes astray

only for his (own) loss. And you (O Muhammad) are

not a Wakeel (trustee or disposer of affairs, or

guardian) over them”[al-Zumar 39:41

THE RETURN OF THE QUR‟AN

To

abandon

listening

to it and

believing

in it.

To abandon

acting upon

it, and

ignoring its

lawful and

prohibited

ordinances.

To abandon

judging by

it, and

resorting to

it as a judge

when there

are

differences.

To abandon

pondering

over it, and

understanding

it, and

seeking the

explanation of

it.

To

abandon

using it as

a cure in all

types of

diseases of

the heart.

Abdullah ibn „Amr stated, “The Day of Judgment will not come until the Qur‟an returns from where it was revealed. It will have a sound like the buzzing of bees and it will say, „O may Lord! From you I came and to you I am returning. I am recited, but not acted upon; I am recited, but not acted upon.”

“What is the matter with them, that they have turned away from the Remembrance?” 74:49

“And whoever turns away from My Remembrance (the Qur‟an), for him is a life of

hardship, and We shall raise him up, on the Day of Judgment, blind. He will say, „O May Lord!

Why have you resurrected me blind, when I used to see (in the world)? Allah will

respond, „Likewise (in this manner), Our verses came to you, but you ignored them.

And, likewise, today you shall be ignored.” (20:124-126)

“The Qur‟an will meet its companion on the

Day of Judgment when his grave is opened

for him, in the form of a pale man. It will say

to him, „Do you recognize me?‟ He will say: I

do not recognize you.‟ It will say: „I am your

companion the Qur‟an, who kept you thirsty

on hot days and kept you awake at night.

Every merchant benefits from his business

and today you will benefit from your good

deeds.‟ He will be given dominion in his right

hand and eternity in his left, and there will

be placed on his head a crown of dignity, and

his parents will be clothed with priceless

garments the like of which have never been

seen in this world. They will say: „Why have

we been clothed with his?‟ It will be said:

„Because your son used to recite Qur‟an.‟

Then it will be said to him: „Recite and ascend

in the degrees of Paradise,‟ and he will

continue to ascend so long as he

recites, either at a fast pace or a slow pace.

(Ahmad, Ibn Majah)
