Holy Quran The Need of the Hour
And how will you disbelieve (now) while you are (fortunate) ones to whom the Verses of Allah are recited, and the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him) is (himself) present among you? And whoever holds fast to (the Embrace of) Allah is most surely guided to the straight path.”
(Quran, Surah Al-i-Imran 3:101)
The holy Quran is the last message of Allah (SWT) that He in His infinite grace and mercy sent towards mankind through the blessed last messenger Prophet Muhammad (SAW). The book is a sure way of success in this world and the hereafter for those who recite it, understand it and most importantly act upon its guidance. Allah (SWT) has laid down all the guidance and knowledge that a person might need to find success in the last day. No matter how much a Muslim might deny it, in the present day Muslims have become, socially, morally, financially decadent and bankrupt and in every corner of the world today are facing humiliation and oppression. This is only due to the fact that the majority of the Muslims today have turned a near deaf ear towards the message that Allah (SWT) sent to them through the Quran. With that said it is common sense that the most easy and in fact the only way for the Muslims to gain respect and prosperity in the world today is to turn back to the book of Allah (SWT) and act according to its instructions. To develop a close relationship with the Quran and to understand its meaning and messages should be the top priority of every Muslim in the world right now. Muslims in the word today should have sufficient knowledge about Islam so that they can defend their religion against baseless propagandas of the world media and the extremists.
In the past there was a dire situation for the western Muslims when they did not have ready access to Islamic knowledge since institute and teachers where next to none. However in today’s world that is no longer a problem since online education has become popular. There are hundreds of top quality online Islamic schools operating today that provide studies such as online Quran memorization courses, online Quran courses and tajweed courses online. There was time when finding a qualified teacher simply to learn to recite the Quran seemed like a blessing, especially for those that lived in areas where Islam was not a prevalent religion. Since then times have greatly improved in this regard at least that if a person today living in the same areas want to memorize the Quran he or she can simply enroll in any of the many online Quran memorization courses at a digital academy that provide online Quran reading and those that still want to go one step further in their understanding of the holy scripture can get admission into any tajweed courses online to learn how to read the Quran perfectly.
