Quraan Recitation in Groups

The Best Way of the Quraan Recitation in Groups:

The best way for the Quraan Recitation in a Group is what Allah had already said, that one person should read it and rest must listen to it with full attention. If in one gathering you have recited and listened first part, then in the next gathering you should recite second part and in next gathering third part and so on. This way in few years you should be able to recite the whole Quraan. Who knows, Allah may reward thousand times or much more for this and Allah knows the best.

And when the Quran is recited, then listen to it and remain silent, that mercy may be shown to you. And remember your Lord within yourself humbly and fearing and in a voice not loud in the morning and the evening and be not of the heedless ones. (Al_Quraan_007:204-205)

The Best Way to Get Allah’s Mercy:

You can get Allah’s Mercy on practically following the commandments of Allah.

Recitation of the Quraan Means Reading it With Full Understanding:

Recitation of the Quraan means reading it with full understanding. If one does not know Arabic Language, he/she must get help from translation till he/she learns Arabic Language. In those schools where they have alternate arrangements for additional languages like French or Urdu, etc. you must request the principal/organizers to start Arabic Language for you kids and make Duaa as well, that May Allah help our kids to Learn Arabic Language to understand the Quraan in a better way. AMEEN.

Do you exhort the people to be righteous, while forgetting yourselves, though you read the scripture? Do you not understand, (Al_Quraan_002:044)?

Every Bidah is Dalalah:

Bidah has no source and or evidence in the Quraan, Sunnah of Prophet (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) and in the actions or Ijma (agreement) of Sahabas. Linguistically Bidah is something which is new or something which was not done before, i.e., it has no precedent. From the point of view of Shari'a, every bida is Dalalah and there is NO such thing as 'good' bida. Prophet (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) said in a Hadeeth, "Kullo Dalalatin Fin Naar (Every Dalalah is in Hellfire)."

Here for example, five times of Salaah/Prayers are Fard, but if someone wants to increase it to six or ten times FARD, although it is a good deed, but is an innovation and will be dividing Deen. Simple thing is whatever Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) did not do or did not command us to do is an innovation. The Quraan is complete and there is no addition and no subtraction. Remember: Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) used to teach the Quraan (i.e. Dars-e-Quraan).

Reciting the Quraan without understanding in a group outside Salaah/Prayers is clearly a Bidah (innovation in DEEN). If one person is reading the Quraan with translation, then others must listen to it attentively, only then we will get Allah’s mercy, since it commanded in the Quraan to do so.

Misguided Muslims exploited by misguided Mullas don’t have time to save humanity using Science and Technology as well, since they are indulged in many good Biddah without understanding consequences of it.

May Allah Help us to Read the Quraan with Understanding and Practice it, AMEEN.

We made the Quran easy to learn. Do any of you wish to learn, (Al_Quraan_054:017, 022, 032, 040)?
