(Quraan Series - Part 3)

Fadhlul Haq, who was the minister of Bengal and Calcutta on behalf of the Muslim League, once needed to travel from Delhi to Calcutta. To make the journey, he decided to buy a first-class train ticket.

After boarding the train, he asked his attendant “Where is my Quraan Majeed? Is it aboard the train?” The attendant replied, “All the luggage has not yet been loaded into the carriage, and the box in which we packed the Quraan Majeed still needs to be loaded. I will bring it immediately.” When he heard this, Fadhlul Haq immediately said, “I have told you, on multiple occasions, to ensure that the Quraan Majeed comes into the carriage first. Unload whatever luggage has already been loaded, we will take the next train and ensure that the Quraan Majeed goes into the carriage first.” Saying this, Fadhlul Haq exited the carriage and left the train.

(Quraan Series - Part 2)

Many people have devoted their entire lives to the service and propagation of the Quraan Majeed. These people spent their days and nights and every available moment they had in the path of the Quraan Majeed. The Quraan Majeed is the speech of Allah Ta‘ala and thus through their devotion to it, they received great blessings and made great strides of progress in gaining the proximity of Allah Ta‘ala. If any person shows devotion and love for the Quraan Majeed, even if it may be according to his limited time and energy, he will also undoubtedly derive great benefit.

(Quraan Series - Part 1)

A woman named ‘Aaishah, from Pakistan, relates the following experience:

I was once busy reciting the Quraan Majeed, as was my habit, when my eldest son, Shafee’, who was approximately six years old at the time, emerged from the house to play outside. We are still unsure as to exactly how it happened, but he somehow closed the door of the car on his finger! His hand was injured so badly that his third finger was almost totally separated from his right hand. The finger just managed to remain attached to his hand by a thin strip of skin.

It Switched off the Mind

We are repeatedly asked in the Quraan Majeed to ponder and reflect, as this is the means to recognize Allah Ta‘ala. However, the science and technology that man uses to bring pleasure and entertainment into his life, has unfortunately taken over his heart and switched off his mind, hence his ability to ponder and reflect has been paralyzed.

Let us take the example of the television. It feeds us with a swift contamination of pictures. Before we can decide to even think about an image, there is another eye-catching picture to distract us. Thus the television does not even permit us to ponder or to reflect. It implants images containing hidden messages into our heart, and not concepts based on sound reasoning into our mind.

Beauty where it Belongs

There is a well known principle in life which states, “There is a time and place for everything”. When correct time and place are not taken into consideration, an experience that would have otherwise been extremely enjoyable becomes disappointing and a pain to endure.

To understand this in perspective, take the example of a platter of steaming hot, delicious food. The aroma of this gastronomic delight wafts through the air and it’s so tantalizing that people involuntary begin to lick their lips. As appetizing as the platter may be, however, if it is placed in the cubicle of a public toilet, people will refuse to even give it a second glance. This is simply because it was not in the correct place.
