READING THE HOLY QUR’AN – MANNERS

MANNERS WHEN READING THE QUR’AN

MANNERS OF THE HEART

A. UNDERSTANDING OF THE ORIGIN OF THE WORDS

This is an indication to the greatness of the words being read, and the bounty of Allah; Glorified is He, to His creation when He addressed His creation with these words.

B. PUTTING INTO THE HEART THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THESE ARE NOT THE WORDS OF MAN.

Through this the reader should think about the characteristics of Allah the Exalted.

C. PRESENCE OF THE HEART WHILE READING.

Through this the reader should throw away other thoughts while reading the Qur’an.

D. PONDERING THE MEANING.

There is less reward in reciting the Qur’an without understanding the meaning. The Qur’an was revealed for guidance and this can be achieved through recitation accompanied with pondering.

E. UNDERSTANDING THE MEANING.

This means interacting and reacting to every verse according to what is proper for it.

F. INDIVIDUALIZATION

This means that the reader feels that every message in the Qur’an is meant especially for him personally.

EXTERNAL MANNERS FOR READING THE QUR’AN

Purity of body and clothes and place.
Using sawak.
Facing the Qiblah.
Seeking refuge from rejected Satan and reading the basmalah.

Imam An-Nawwawi may Allah be Merciful to him said: Crying when reading the Qur’an is a characteristic of those who know Allah (know Him through His names and Characteristics) and the feelings of the righteous.

The Quran Memorisation Project for Females, part of the sixth edition of a multi-branch Quran course, has helped the women revise 20, 15, 10, and five volumes of the Quran comprising 30 volumes and offers a special class for tajweed or art of recitation.

As many as 259 learners are enrolled in the course in the emirates of Dubai, Ajman and Ras Al Khaimah. Graduates got certificates on course completion while some learners are accredited to teach Quran as per the Hafs and Shuaba Rewayas or schools of recitation.

The Quran Memorisation Project is meant to help students better memorise and recite the Quran, understand its meaning and principles, and produce competent teachers with sound methodology.

Moza Naseeb, General Coordinator of The Ber Quran Memorisation Project for Females, paid tribute to the Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nuaimi Centre for Quran Service for supporting the programme and teaching the Quran to as many learners as possible.

“The course is in line with the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) who used to study the Quran every day during Ramadan with angel Jibril,” she said.

Dar Al Ber already runs a number of diverse courses on teaching accreditation, Jazriya for Tajweed art, scientific textbooks on memorisation, children’s guidebook for Quran memorisation, foreign community classes, as well as winter and summer courses.
