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.
the Quran is recited, then
listen to it and remain silent, that mercy may be shown to you.
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
Best Way to Get Allah’s Mercy:
You can get Allah’s Mercy on
practically following the commandments of Allah.
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
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.
