Importance of Qur’an Learning
The Holy Quran is a divine book in which Allah (s.w.t) has blessed us with a complete code of conduct. Quran includes every aspect of life which a person needs to know about. The best of all education in this world is Qur’an and acquiring it is mandatory for every human being. It is the primary and highly signified learning which is solution to all problems and issues of our life. Learning Quran is a full time benefiting and comforting work which is worth doing.
Benefits of Quran Learning
Quran learning is a very noble act, which should be performed by every Muslim man and woman. It gives him/her knowledge about all aspects of life, brings near to the Creator, and will be a proof of the rewards of his/her good deeds on the Day of Judgment.
Quran learning is equally mandatory on Muslim men and women. Muslims start learning Quran from the early years of life. The attachment with Qur’an through its learning brings us closer to the Creator, brings Barakah in this worldly life and will be a source of big reward in the hereafter.
The benefits of Quran learning are unlimited with primary benefit of guidance towards the straight path.
Read! In the Name of your Lord Who has created (all that exists).He has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous. Who has taught (the writing) by the pen. He has taught man that which he knew not” [al-‘Alaq 96:1-5]
We learn this from a Hadith that best of all are those who are associated with Quran(by learning it and imparting its beneficial knowledge) as RasulUllah(s.a.w) said:
“The best of you is he who learnt the Holy Quran and taught it to others.” (Bukhari)
Importance of Quran learning can be understood through many examples. Reading Surah Al Mulk daily at night will save person from punishment in grave and is Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w):
‘He (sallAllahu ‘alayhiwasallam) used to recite Surah As-Sajdah and Surah Al-Mulk (in Arabic) before sleeping.’
[Reference: At-Tirmithi, An-Nasa’i. See also Al-Albani, Sahihul-Jami ’ As-Saghir 4/255]
Surah AL Fatiha is declared as Shifa/cure for every illness. About Surah Al Kahf, it comes in a hadith: “Whoever memorized the first ten ayahs of Surah Kahf will be saved from Dajjal. (Sahih Muslim)”
Etiquettes and Rules of Learning Quran
We learn from the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) and from the traditions of his companions (Sahaba (R.A)) that Qur’an should be recited with esteem and concentration of heart and mind. Muslims when memorize or learn Qur’an, they need to keep revising it so that they do not forget it because it is considered as sin to forget Quran after acquiring its knowledge. Allah (s.w.t) has made it compulsory on us to learn knowledge of Quran and impart it to others.
– It is one of the etiquettes that a person is in state of Wudu(ablution) while reciting and the place is free of nijasat (impurities).
– It is the responsibility on a Muslim to correct the mistakes of other Muslim when he/she is doing mistakes while reading Qur’an.
– One should learn from a teacher who has proficient knowledge of Quran with Tajweed and Tafsir so that we get better in understanding Quran.
– While reading the Qur’an, understanding its content and pondering over it are not-to-be-missed ingredients of the whole process.
We need to make dua that O Allah(s.w.t)! grant us with the best understanding of your holy book Qur’an and guide us to the straight path, Ameen.
