(Tafseer Al-Sa’di)
  11. 11. • Beneficial knowledge through pondering upon the ayahs • Rewards from Allah • Allah guides His slaves and sets straight their affairs in this world and the Hereafter • Ongoing and renewed faith, • Increased guidance and insight into his religion. • Allah connected the attainment of mercy to listening to Quran • Companions used to listen to recitations. ‘Umar ibn al- Khattaab (RA) would say to Abu Moosa (RA): Remind us of our Lord, and Abu Moosa would recite Qur'an whilst they listened.
  12. 12. • Quran is an open and evident reminder for those who listen to it attentively with presence of mind. • Muslim develops fear, love, respect, and a sense of obedience and submission towards Allah Almighty. • It reminds a Muslim of the transitory nature of this world and how there will be a life in the hereafter for which a Muslim needs to prepare. • Therefore, listening to Quran daily serves as a constant reminder for a Muslim.
  13. 13. • Basic purpose of performing Taraweeh prayer is to listen to the Quran • Eat the right and light foods in Iftar • Take friend and family with you. This keeps you motivated and gives a feeling of enthusiasm • Arrive early, thinking that you are going to stand in front of Allah – • Focus on recitation. • Read the translation of the excerpt that is going to be recited in the Taraweeh during the night • Do Taraweeh with true heart and enjoy the prayer instead of just getting over with it
  14. 14. • “(This is) a Book (the Qur’aan) which We have sent down to you, full of blessings, that they may ponder over its Verses, and that men of understanding may remember” [Saad 38:29]. • A person will be rewarded for reading the Qur'an whether he understands its meanings or not. • He should be very keen to understand its meanings and to learn these meanings from scholars who are trustworthy in their knowledge. • If he has no access to a scholar who can teach him the meanings, he may refer to the trustworthy books of tafseer, such as Tafseer Ibn Jareer, Tafseer Ibn Katheer and others
  15. 15. • and recite the Qur'an in slow measured rhythmic tones. Muzammil, 73:4 • The tafsir of this ayah (according to Ibn Katheer) is to recite the Qur’an slowly, making the letters clear. • This assists in understanding and pondering the meaning of the Qur’an. A related word is “Murattal” • When asked about the meaning of Tarteel, Ali (RA) replied, ‘It means that the Qur’an should be recited with Tajweed and with due observance to the rules of Waqf (pausing or stopping at the end of the verse).’
  16. 16. • Those unto whom We have given the Scripture, who read it with the right reading, those believe in it. And whoso disbelieve in it, those are they who are the losers. (Al-Baqara, 2:121) • Tajweed is the science of the rules of recitation of the Quran. • Reciting with Tajweed means that one is applying the rules of Tajweed. Related word is “mujawwad”.
  17. 17. • 1- ‫التحقيق‬:‫غير‬ ‫من‬ ‫البطء‬‫تمطيط‬ TAHQEEQ-slowness without elongation)-exceeding the length of a harakah to give rise to an added letter is called At-Tamteet. • For example, if he says kuuntum instead of kuntum – he extends the sound so as to produce an extra waw. • 2- ‫التدوير‬:‫التوسط‬ Tadweer-moderation in recitation) It is moderation in recitation. It is neither as fast as Al Hadr nor as slow as Tahqeeq.
  18. 18. • 3- ‫الحدر‬:‫و‬ ‫دمج‬ ‫غير‬ ‫من‬ ‫السرعة‬‫يعمها‬ • (Al-Hadar-fastness without merging of letters) • When reading with Hadar, there is a danger of reducing the timing of the letters and inserting one into another. • One may read fast with a view to earning reward, or with a view to reviewing his memorization. • If one wants to review 3-4 juz a day and has limited time for it. he must pronounce the letters and give them their rights. • For example, he should not say ja’anna instead of ja’alna (by failing to pronounce the laam due to speed of recitation). • He has done idghaam of the laam into the noon. • Or instead of saying siraat allazi an’amta alayhim, he says siraat allazin’amta. Where is the hamza? Each letter must be clearly pronounced.
  19. 19. • 1. Highest ranks of Jannah for the Memorizer of the Qur'an: • Abdullah Ibn 'Amr reported that the Prophet (SAW) said: "It will be said to the companion of the Qur'an after he has entered Paradise, 'Recite, and rise!' For every verse he recites he will rise one level (in Paradise),until he recites the last verse with him (i.e., in his memory)." (Abu Dawood) Obviously, the one who memorized the whole Qur'an will stop at the last verse of the Quran meaning they will be of those among the highest ranks of paradise.
  20. 20. Abu Dawood
  21. 21. The Prophet (SAW) said: “The best amongst you is the one who learns the Qur’an and teaches it. ” (Sahih Al-Bukhari)
  22. 22. (MUSLIM)
  23. 23. • The Prophet (SAW) said: “Whoever recites one Word from the Book of Allah will be rewarded for a good deed and ten more like it; and I don’t say that Alif Lam Mim is a letter but Alif is a letter and Lam is a letter and Mim is a letter” (Tirmidhi & Al-Dareemi) The Qur'an has over 6000 verses and each verse has so many alphabets. Can you imagine the number of alphabets the memoriser of the Qur'an recites. • He will recite one verse again and again and has to continuously recite the Qur'an to keep it fresh in his heart. • Surely he would have gained millions of rewards by completing the Qur'an just once. • Thereafter he will go over a verse again and again in his mind and he would have recited the Qur'an again and again resulting in rewards beyond mathematical calculations and our limited comprehension.
  24. 24. • It was narrated that Abu Umaamah al-Baahili said:“I heard the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) say: ‘Recite the Qur'an, for it will come on the Day of Resurrection to intercede for its companions. Recite the two bright ones, al-Baqarah and Soorat Aal ‘Imraan, for they will come on the Day of Resurrection like two clouds or two shades or two flocks of birds in ranks, pleading for those who recite them. Recite Soorat al-Baqarah for to take recourse to it is a blessing and to give it up is a cause of grief, and the magicians cannot confront it.” (Muslim: 804, Al-Bukhaari).
  25. 25. • Ali (RA) reports that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Anyone who knows the Quran by heart and follows the lawful and the prohibited according to it, he will be sent to Heaven by Allah(SWT).” (Tirmidhi). As long as the memorizer of the Qur'an follows the lawful and keeps away from the prohibited then he will be granted Jannah.
  26. 26. • Aboo Hurayrah(RA) reported that the Prophet (SAW) said, "The Qur'an will be brought on the Day of Judgement, and it will say, 'O My Lord! Adorn him (the one who read and practiced it)!' So he will be adorned with the crown of glory and honor . It will then say, 'O My Lord! Increase this!' So he will be clothed with the clothes of glory and honor. Then it will say, 'O My Lord! Be pleased with Him! So He (Allah) will be pleased with him. It will be said, 'Recite! And rise!' and every verse he recites will bless him with a good deed" (at-Tirmidhee) • What an honour it would be when on such a day of terror the memoriser of the Qur'an would be given such a high honour and adorned with a crown and garment of glory and honour.
  27. 27. • 'Ismah Ibn Maalik (RA)reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said: • "If the Qur'aan is enclosed by skin (i.e., if a person memorizes the entire Qur'an), then Allah will never burn it in the Fire (of Hell) ” (al-Bayhaqee)
  28. 28. • Aisha(RA) reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said: The likeness of the one who reads Quran and memorizes it is that he is with the righteous honorable scribes. The likeness of the one who reads it and tries hard to memorize it even though it is difficult for him, he will have (at least) a double reward.(Al-Bukhaari, 4937) • So we must NEVER give up memorizing the Qur'an even though we may struggle to learn a single verse for it maybe that shaytan will try hard to make a person give up knowing that he will receive double rewards for it if he continues.
  29. 29. • 1. Al-Ikhlas – Sincerity- • The first step to ease the memorization of the Quran is sincerity. The person must memories the Quran for the sake of reward and to please Allah. Not to show off, aim to impress others or in order to get a Job (e.g. as Imam of the Masjid). • 2. Correct the pronunciation and recitation Another factor that will help a person memorize the Quran is to correct the pronunciation and recitation of the Quran. This can be achieved by listening to a Qari whose style of recitation you like and makes you feel connected to the Quran. • 3. Specify how many verses you want to memorize on a daily basis- For example, commit yourself to memorize 3, 5, 10, 20 verses per day.
  30. 30. • 5. Memorize from only one copy of the Quran- This is because in every Qur‫أ‬an, the layout of the verses is different. If you memorise from one copy you will have a mental picture of the verse in your mind, whereas if you attempt to memorise from many different copies of the Quran, it could lead to confusion and difficulty in memorizing the Quran. • 6. Understanding is a mechanism of memorizing- Understanding the verses will definitely increase memorization and also khushoo (ritual fear and focus) during salah. • 7. Do not go to another chapter until you finish the chapter you are on- Memorizing the Quran in chapters is the best way to memorize the Quran as it will be easier to remember where you stopped last.
  31. 31. • 8. Do not listen to yourself all the time -It is advisable to recite in front of someone who is Hafiz ul Quran (who has memorised the Quran) as this will benefit the hafiz and he will correct him on any mistakes he makes. 9. Continuity - Always recite to yourself, wherever you are- It has been reported the Messenger Muhammad (saw) said that the Quran will run away from the tongue of a person faster than an untied camel. Make sure you are constantly reciting the Quran wherever you are e.g. on the bus, whilst travelling, relaxing at home etc. 10. Identify the patterns of the verses -The Quran is Mutashaabihaat, which means that it has a pattern. Verses often look and sound like each other, which is a great aid to memorising the Qur‫أ‬an.
  32. 32. - Do they not then earnestly seek to understand the Qur'an or are their hearts locked up by them? (Mohammad, 47:24) Here is) a Book which We have sent down unto thee full of blessings that they may meditate on its Signs and that men of understanding may receive admonition. (Saad,38:29) Those who when they are admonished with the Signs of their Lord droop not down at them as if they were deaf or blind. Furqan (25:73)
  33. 33. Many are the Jinns and men We have made for Hell: They have hearts wherewith they understand not eyes wherewith they see not and ears wherewith they hear not. They are like cattle nay more misguided: for they are heedless (of warning). (Araaf, 7:179)
  34. 34. • It was reported from Yazid bin Abdullah, from Abddullah bin Amr (RA), that he said, “O Allah’s Messenger (SAW)! In how many days should I recite Qur’an?” • He (the Prophet, PBUH) replied, “In one month.” • I said, “I am capable of more!” – and he made it less, until he said, “Recite it in seven.” • So he (Abdullah bin Amr, RA) said, “I am capable of more!” • But he (the Prophet, PBUH) said, “He who recites it in less than three (days) will not understand it.” • (Hadith No. 1390, Chapters pertaining to the Month of Ramadan, Sunan Abu Dawud, Vol. 2).
  35. 35. 1-Literal meaning though Arabic knowledge or through translations 2-Understanding of the learned through their presentations or tafasir 3-Study and ponder on your own to attain Tadhakkur and then Tadabbur 4-Discover its meaning through practicing its message and fulfilling its mission
  36. 36. • Anas bin Malik said,”Often one recites the Quran and it curses him because he does not understand it.” • According to Abdullah Ibn Umar(RA), sign of faith is to understand the Quran • Ali (RA) said ,” There is no good in Quran reading which is not pondered over.” • Abu Sulayman Al Darani said,” I recite a verse and remain with it for 4-5 nights and do not pass on to another verse till I have ended my thinking on it.
  37. 37. And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition? (54:32) Verily We have made this (Qur'an) easy in thy tongue in order that they may give heed. (Dukhan, 44:58) We have put forth for men in this Qur'an every kind of Parable in order that they may receive admonition. (Zumar,39:27)
  38. 38. • It signifies your grasp of the general messages and teachings of Quran. • You understand the demands which this message makes to you • You build the will to act in accordance with it • You determine what message you must deliver to your fellow human beings. • It is in this sense that Quran is easy to understand • It is available to every sincere inquirer • You have to strive all your life to gain this light
  39. 39. • You try to find the full meaning of every word, ayah and surah • You explore deep meanings of parables, textual cohesion, find central ideas, delve into lexical intricacies, tanzil and historical background. • You do comparative study of tafsir • Discover all implications for the relation of man with God, his fellow humans • Derive laws and morals for individual and society • You need knowledge of ‘Ulumul Quran’
  40. 40. • Choose at least 5 pages to read in translation daily and couple it with reading it in Arabic and/or listening to it in Arabic • During Ramadan, choose to pray a certain number of rakahs for taraweeh, but also make it a point to sit down and follow the recitation with the English translation • For Ramadan especially, try to read the translation of the surah that will be covered in that night’s prayer.
  41. 41. • Use keywords ( like Qabr, Jannah, Hashar ) to help your mind and heart interact with the Qur’an’s message to you. • Listen to the Qur’an and its translation constantly; while stuck in traffic, while cooking and cleaning etc. • Study the meanings of Qur’anic words specifically over time. Here is a good reference: : • Throughout the year, work on tajweed (correct recitation of the Qur`an in Arabic) and memorization.
  42. 42. • 1-Mother of the believers, Aisha (RA) was asked this question, "How was the akhlâq of our beloved Prophet (SAW)? Her response was very brief, but effective • ُ‫ن‬‫آ‬ْ‫ر‬ُ‫ق‬‫ال‬ ُ‫ه‬ُ‫ق‬ُ‫ل‬ُ‫خ‬ َ‫َان‬‫ك‬ “His character was the Qur’an!” • 2-In a hadith the Prophet said: I was educated by my Lord, most Glorified and He educated me best.
  43. 43. • Prophet (SAW) said: • Many of the hypocrites in my Ummah will be from amongst the reciters of the Quran. (Ahmad) • He is not a true believer in the Quran who treats as Halal (permissible) what it has made Haram (prohibited). Read the Quran so it enables you to desist Haram. If it is not able to do so, you have not read Quran. (Tabarani).
  44. 44. • ‘Abdullah ibn (RA) spent 10 years or 12, just to master Surah al-Baqarah. • In a process like this, it’s obvious that ibn ‘Umar (RA) was not only determined to memorize the Surah, but in addition to memorizing it, he was determined to comprehend it, and put every single verse of it into practice. • ‘Uthmān, Ubay ibn Ka‘b and Abdullah ibn Mas‘ūd (RA) said that when they learnt 10 verses from the Prophet, everyone ensured he won’t go for more until he has mastered the 10 and put them into practice. As a result, they learnt the Qur’an, comprehended it, and then practiced it accordingly. ( Al Itqaan Fi Ulumul Quran by Suyuti)
  45. 45. • In order to internalize any chapter or verses in the Qur’an, one needs to have its understanding • Having Arabic knowledge gives you a higher level of understanding the Qur’an. • The learner is usually advised to start from the shorter chapters • This understanding of Quran must strengthen our Iman which motivates us to live the Quran • Ayahs understood must be put into practice following the footsteps of the Prophet (SAW)
  46. 46. • Allah did confer a great favor on the believers when He sent among them a Messenger from among themselves, rehearsing unto them the verses of Allah, sanctifying them, and instructing them in Scripture and Wisdom, while, before that, they had been in manifest error. (Al `Imran: 164)
  47. 47. • Abu Hurayrah (RA), narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said,"No people assemble in a house among the houses of Allah (mosques) and recite the Book of Allah and study it (among themselves), but there would descend upon them tranquility; mercy would cover them; and the angels would surround them and Allah makes mention of them in the presence of those who are near Him. (Muslim)
  48. 48. • Uqbah ibn `Amir (RA) who said, • "Once we were in Suffa when the Messenger of Allah ( SAW) came out and said, 'Which of you would like to go out every morning to But’han (a place near Madinah) or Al-Aqiq (a valley near Madinah) and bring two large she-camels without being guilty of sin or without severing the ties of kinship? • 'We said, 'Messenger of Allah, we would like to do it.' Upon this he said, 'Does not one of you go out in the morning to the mosque and teach or recite two verses from the Book of Allah, the Majestic and Glorious? • That is better for him than two she-camels, and three verses are better than three (she-camels), and four verses are better for him than four (she- camels), and so on. “ (Sunan Abu-Dawood)
  49. 49. And remember Allah took a Covenant from the People of the Book to make it known and clear to mankind and not to hide it; but they threw it away behind their backs and purchased with it some miserable gain! and vile was the bargain they made! Ale-Imran,3:187
  50. 50. O thou wrapped up (in a mantle)! Arise and deliver thy warning! (Muddasir,74:1,2) This Qur'an has been revealed to me by inspiration that I may warn you and all whom it reaches. Blessed is He Who sent down the Criterion to His servant that it may be an admonition to all creatures
  51. 51. • O Messenger (Muhammad SAW)! Proclaim (the Message) which has been sent down to you from your Lord. And if you do not, then you have not conveyed His Message. Allah will protect you from mankind. Verily, Allah guides not the people who disbelieve. (Maidah,5:67)
  52. 52. • Quran is recited by millions today but it brings no change in their situation • Many recite it, but do not understand it • If they understand it, they do not act upon it • If they act upon it, they do so on part of it and neglect part of it • They do not bring the light of its guidance to the world like they are commanded through words and actions.
  53. 53. Then is it only a part of the Book that you believe in and do you reject the rest? But what is the reward for those among you who behave like this but disgrace in this life? and on the Day of Judgment they shall be consigned to the most grievous penalty. For Allah is not unmindful of what ye do. (2:85)
  54. 54. Had they established the Torah & the Injil and what has been sent down to them by their Lord, they would have eaten from above them and from beneath their feet. Maidah, 5:66 Propht (SAW) said,” Allah (SWT) makes some people to rise and others to fall by this Book.
  55. 55. • Quran caused him to abandon his solitude and confront the world living in disobedience to God • It inspired him to raise his voice against falsehood and he stood up against disbelief and injustice • He drew every pure soul from each home and gathered them under the banner of truth • All mischievous and corrupt forces tried to persecute them • Quran guided the truthful in this struggle till its guidance became the way of life and beyond
  56. 56. • We can not fully understand it merely by reading it • We need to act upon its teachings fully with sincerity • We must call humanity at large to the message of Quran for its success and salvation • We must then face struggle and hardships with patience and steadfastness keeping full trust in Allah. This is the true Quranic path we must walk on to fully comprehend the meanings of Quran O ye who believe! be ye helpers of Allah. (Saf,61:14)
