Home General Strive to Bring Alive At least Two Quraans a Year

What is "Strive to Bring Alive"

The purpose of this column is to motivate and encourage everyone to make an attempt to bring alive the very simple actions that will be presented every two weeks. Insha-Allah by making these very easy actions part of our daily lives, we will benefit from the blessings of practising on these a’amaal and they will also become a stepping stone towards doing greater actions.
As a means of encouragement to others, and also to spur us ahead, a vote counter has been attached. The idea is that for two weeks every person reading this column should make an effort to practice on the ‘amal (action) presented. At the end of the two weeks, those who have practiced upon it for at least one week or more should vote “YES.” This will Insha-Allah encourage others also to do the same.

At least Two Quraans a Year

When last were we blessed with the complete recitation of the Quraan Majeed? Among the rights of the Quraan Majeed is to complete at least two khatams a year. We want everyone to fulfill our rights, let us start by fulfilling the right of the Quraan Majeed. Let not a day of purity pass by without us having recited a portion of the Quraan Majeed. If on any day we are extremely tired or busy, then the least we can do is to open the Quraan Majeed and recite a few lines. A day passed without reciting the Quraan Majeed is like a gold chain with a link missing. That chain is incomplete and cannot be used. 

The Quraan Majeed must become part of our lives, to the extent that the day it is not recited we should become restless and uneasy that something is missing in our life today. We make time for everything in our lives, surely we can make time for the Quraan Majeed, the beautiful words of our Allah Ta`ala. While this is a right of the Quraan Majeed, out of his grace and mercy Allah Ta`ala rewards us for its recitation. Upon the recitation of every letter one is blessed with at least ten rewards. Thus the recitation of Surah Fatihah alone will earn us a few thousand rewards. Therefore let us reap the maximum by reciting the Quraan Majeed daily.
