“ The Month of the Al-Quran.”
The month of Ramadan is the blessed month in which the Qur’an was revealed. Allah swt said”
“(It is) the month of Ramadan in which the Qur’an was revealed”.
To signify this special occasion of revelation, we fast during the day and pray at nights, particularly Laylat al-Qadr, the night the Qur’an was revealed.
Allah SWT said: “We sent it down on a Blessed Night: We have ever been sending warnings.” [44:3] The reward for fasting and praying in this month is so great, that the Prophet SAAW says: “Whoever fasted the month of Ramadan out of sincere faith and hoping for reward, then all his past sins will be forgiven, and whoever stood for the prayer on Laylat al-Qadr out of sincere faith and hoping for reward, then all his previous sins will be forgiven.”
The bonding relationship with the Quran
Regretfully, many of us do not have strong relationship with the Qur’an. Since we are in Ramadan, the blessed month of the Qur’an, and the devils have been chained up, now it is upon us to renew and rejuvenate our relationship with the Quran.
Al-Shafi’i used to read AlQuran 60 times every Ramadan.
Sayyidna Uthman used to spend the night reciting the entire Qur’an in a single rak’ah.
Sa’id b. Jubayr and Imam Ahmad have done it as well.
The Salaf used to recite the Qur’an during Ramadan, both inside prayer and outside.
Now, to the real issue, what should we do to rectify our situation?
For those who are already in the habit of reading the Qur’an with reflection and understanding every Ramadan. Also, take this as an opportunity to get into the habit of reading the Qur’an daily even when Ramadan is over.
May Allah SWT make the Quran the “Spring of our hearts”. Ameen
