The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐰𝐨 𝐛𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐢𝐜𝐡 𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐝𝐨 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐮𝐬 𝐥𝐨𝐬𝐞 𝐨𝐮𝐭: 𝐠𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐡 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐞 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6412.
One of my recent goals that i have added to the list is: bettering my relationship with the Qur’an. As a child we are taught how to read it, encouraged to finish reading it at least once but other than that the education in regards to the Qur’an is not at the level which is needed.
A relationship with the Qur’an includes but is not limited to; reciting it correctly, understanding it, contemplating over its verses, learning from it and incorporating the lessons into our daily actions and lives.
The Qur’an and Sunnah teach us about Islam and its lessons and how to achieve our purpose of life.
Unfortunately, we are overwhelmed with the affairs of the world and we lose sight of our final abode in which our relationship with the Qur’an would help with.
We must ask ourselves, how much time do we spend with the Qur’an?
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “𝐌𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐟𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 𝐛𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐟𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐬: 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐝𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐡, 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐡 𝐛𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐬𝐢𝐜𝐤𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬, 𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐞 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐛𝐮𝐬𝐲, 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐡 𝐛𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐨𝐥𝐝 𝐚𝐠𝐞, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐰𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐡 𝐛𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐩𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐲.”
See Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 1077.
Picture taken by myself as i have a collection of pocket watches so don’t take it without permission.
May Allah azza wa jal make us the people of the Qur’an and place barakah in our time Ameen
