It has been said that everything has a beloved and that the month of Ramadan has a beloved, too: The Glorious Qur’an.
For the duration of this month, Muslims worldwide honour Ramadan’s beloved and aspire to complete the recitation of the Qur’an. In this article you’ll learn how you too can work towards achieving this noble goal, insha’Allah.
STEP 1: Establishing an intention
Our beloved Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) taught us – through his words and actions – the importance of one’s intent or purpose.
Establishing one’s intention is an effective catalyst for implementation. Once your intention has been established, remember to renew it often.
Whilst reciting and even upon completion of the Qur’an, recall your intention and renew it, thus ensuring that it is constantly purified; you are seeking His Divine Acceptance, insha Allah.
STEP 2: Don’t be overwhelmed
For some, as much as they aspire to complete the recitation of the Qur’an during Ramadan, they are overwhelmed by the number of pages or the length of some Surahs.
Remove ‘I can’t’ from your vocabulary and eliminate negative thinking, for the believer puts their trust in Allah, matched by striving with their actions.
Remind yourself that you are, if Allah wills, fully capable of achieving your Qur’anic aspirations, whether it be completing Qur’an 1 or 5 times.
This second point is key. Put your heart into this accomplishment and reap the rewards throughout, inshaAllah.Pages: 1 2 3
