Important Aspects for Reciting and Learning the Quran
“O people I am leaving behind among you the Holy Book (Quran) and the Sunnah (way of Prophet (SAW)), if you follow these in letter and spirit you will never be strayed.”
(Hakim Al-Mustadrik, Book1 Hadith 318)
The holy Quran is the book of the Muslims and a vast source of knowledge and guidance for mankind. There is a stark difference between all other books in the world and the holy Quran due the fact that this last divine scripture is the word of Allah (SWT) and not the product of a human mind. The books that are written by human hands and from human knowledge always focus on one subject whereas it remains quiet on others. The holy Quran is the most important text that has ever come into the possession of human hands and the knowledge contained with it will be needed by mankind till the end of time. Muslims and non-Muslims are advised to thoroughly study the Quran for it hold many benefits and holds in it the guidance that when followed will lead the person to live a successful life in this world and the next. There are some very important aspects for reciting and learning the Quran;
1. Reading of the holy book is an Islamic duty.
2. The Quran will intercede for those that read and understood and acted upon it in this world, on the Day of Judgment.
3. People that recite the Quran extensively will find their status elevated.
4. Recitation and understanding of the Quran is the best and most important cure for anxiety and depression.
5. There is great reward for each letter of the Quran that is recited.
Many scholars around the world that are well versed in Islamic doctrine encourage people not only to recite the Quran but to understand its meanings. For this they advise that it is best to learn Arabic, the language that the Quran was revealed in for that is the easiest way to gain in depth knowledge about the message of the Quran. There are many schools around the world today that have established themselves as online Islamic academies and they provide courses such as online Quran teaching for kids, online Quran classes and studies to learn Arabic online. Online Quran classes are exactly the same as their physical counterparts but hold many advantages over attending a regular institute. Muslims in the western world especially prefer to have online Quran teaching for kids since that way they get access to a highly qualified teacher from whom the child can learn from a familiar place which will make him or her not feel overwhelmed. Many non-Muslims around the world also today turn to Islamic digital schools where they can learn Arabic online from native speakers.
