The Qur’an is for the remembrance of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Allah tells us 54:17 ”We have made the Qur’an easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn?” The Qur’an is a message to be communicated to all people. A message that invites people to consider, to believe, to imitate and to use reason, regarding how Allah’s creation has the most impressive harmony and function that never falters nor fails.
Let us consider for a moment, the contestants on the television game shows; in order to win, the contestants study, listen intently to the instructions and the questions; they knowingly and consciously provide their answers. The contestants do not criticize the limited amount of time allotted for responses. They are seriously, consistently and purposefully focused on the prize.
What about our Qur’anic literacy?. Our level of Qur’anic literacy, determines our
appreciation of our existence, of the hereafter, of our purpose, of the certainty of our death and the account we will present to Allah.
Allah asks us:25:43 “Have you seen the one whose god is his own ego? Will you be his
supporter?” The very thought of being quranically illiterate may be an indication that our minds are sedated, causing us to redirect our efforts and attention towards achievements, we believe to be greater or accessible. Being knowledgeable in Qur’an and the Arabic language helps us to remember Allah. Helps to increase our consciousness, so much so that, whenever we are struggling with our ego’s, remembrance of Allah is powerful and satisfying.
Let us not become complacent with the English or other language translations of our Qur’an. Let us not just recite and memorize the Qur’an, but more importantly let us earnestly learn the Arabic language, be determined to know the instructions, the commands and remain, always in remembrance of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Let us commit to strive, to learn the Qur’anic Arabic language. Learning the language of Qur’an helps us to learn how to protect ourselves from ourselves. Let us find a Qur’anic Arabic language class, let us learn the Arabic grammar, let us study the messages and the miracles in Qur’an and let us raise our level of literacy to awesome degrees.
