Increase in the reading of Qur’an

What better time to re-establish your relationship with the Qur’an than in the month when it was revealed? Abdullah ibn Amr (RA) reported that the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said: “The fast and the Qur’an are two intercessors for the servant of Allah on the Day of Resurrection. The fast will say: ‘O Lord I prevented him from his food and desires during the day. Let me intercede for him.’ The Qur’an will say ‘I prevented him from sleeping at night. Let me intercede for him.’ And their intercession will be accepted.” (Ahmad).

Acceptance of Dua

Ramadan holds the promise of the acceptance of duas to a much greater degree than at any other time of the year. Abu Hurairah (RA) reported that the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said: “There are three people whose supplications are not rejected: the fasting person when he breaks his fast, the just ruler and the supplication of the oppressed” (Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah and Ibn Hibban).

Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun kareemun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘annee
“O Allah, You are the best forgiver, beneficient and merciful. You love forgiveness so forgive me.”
(at-Tirmidhi).

Read Al Quran Surah Al-Araf, 7:31 (ayat 31)

Al-Araf
O Children of Adam! Look to your adornment at every place of worship, and eat and drink, but be not prodigal. Lo! He loveth not the prodigals. (31)

===


Al-Araf
O children of Adam! wear your beautiful apparel at every time and place of prayer: eat and drink: but waste not by excess for Allah loveth not the wasters.

===

Al-Araf
O Children of Adam! Take your adornment (by wearing your clean clothes), while praying[] and going round (the Tawâf of ) the Ka'bah, and eat and drink but waste not by extravagance, certainly He (Allâh) likes not Al-Musrifûn (those who waste by extravagance). (31)

===


Allah (SWT) says in Holy Quran: "Eat and drink freely: but waste not by excess, for He does not like the wasters." (Surah Al-Araf, 7:31)

basics law to memorize the Quran when you read quran

source




There are some basic laws of memory that we need to first recognize, they are as follows –

Law of Frequency:
We tend to remember things we experience the most often, rather than those we experience only once in a while. You are much more likely to remember your name or your phone number than the square root of 3.

Law of Recency:
We are more likely to remember things that happened recently than those that happened a long time ago. You can probably remember what you had for dinner yesterday, but not what you ate for dinner two weeks ago today.

Law of Vividness:
We tend to remember the most spectacular or striking impressions rather than those that are more ordinary. You can probably remember what you did on your last birthday, or perhaps the Space Shuttle Challenger explosion, but not what happened on the previous day of those occasions.

Now that we have come face to face with our memory, Insha’Allah it will be easier to bend the rules to achieve the final goal – Hifz-ul-Qur’an!

1) When it comes to the Law of Frequency – the best way to keep the ayahs of the Holy Qur’an inside your memory is to repeat them constantly, especially when you first start to learn a surah. Once you get used to these phases of repetition you will find that even when you are taking a stroll outside or doing other things you will be reciting the surahs to yourself Insha’Allah. We find that the easiest method of learning a surah is -

a) Choose the Surah you would like to memorize.

b) Sit down and listen to the audio recitation 3 times.

c) Follow along with the recitation for 10-20 minutes and repeat along.

d) Repeat steps a through c everyday for seven days.

However, we also find that the best way to memorize an ayah is –

a) Choose the ayah you would like to memorize.

b) Sit down and listen to the recitation 3 times.

c) Follow along with the recitation for 10-15 minutes while repeating.

d) Repeat the ayah whenever you have spare time during the day – Insha’Allah this will ensure that the ayah gets ingrained into your memory.

2) When it comes to the Law of Recency – it is imperative to recite the ayahs (or surahs) that you have recently learned in a constant manner… as we all know, human beings forget quite easily! Allahu Alim, if we continue to recite our ayahs and surahs, Insha’Allah we will not forget.

3) When it comes to the last rule of memorization (Law of Vividness) – Alhamdulillah! This is the least of our troubles, because the Holy Qur’an is the most spectacular, striking and glorious book – what else could be more spectacular than the Word of Allah?

Some people find it difficult to follow along with the Arabic scripture in the Holy Qur’an, for our users who fall into this category, we recommend following along with the transliteration of the Holy Qur’an which can be located here Insha’Allah –

Read AL Quran Surah Al Maidah ayat 15-16



the life of the Prophet(as) was described by Aisha(rAa) to be like a “walking Quran” , I find that expression fascinating ...

Wouldn’t it be beautiful if during this blessed month while we read & study the Quran, that we try to implement it in our daily lives & live by it’s rules as did our beloved Prophet(as). After all, the Quran is there to inspire & guide us :)

“... Indeed, there has come to you from Allah a light and a plain Book. Wherewith Allah guides all those who seek His Good Pleasure to ways of peace, and He brings them out of darkness by His Will unto light and guides them to a Straight Way.” (5:15,16)

“This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who are Al-Muttaqûn (pious)” (2:2)



====


Al-Maeda
O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad SAW) explaining to you much of that which you used to hide from the Scripture and pass over (i.e. leaving out without explaining) much. Indeed, there has come to you from Allâh a light (Prophet Muhammad SAW ) and a plain Book (this Qur'ân). (15) Wherewith Allâh guides all those who seek His Good Pleasure to ways of peace, and He brings them out of darkness by His Will unto light and guides them to a Straight Way (Islâmic Monotheism) (16)

Al-Baqarah 2:183 and Al-Baqarah 2:185









Fasting in Ramadan is of great importance. ALLAH orders us to have fast during the oth of Ramadan with a complete faith. Fasting doesn’t mean to give you punishment. Always do breakfast at the time of sunrise and then decide to have a fast for whole day till sunset. Hazrat Anas related that Rasulullah said: “Take the Suhoor meal, for there is blessing in it (Bukhari, Muslim)”.

There are many Ramadan Ayats in Quran. We know that the Ayats of Quran are the words of ALLAH so they are true and for our better life.

“The month of Ramadan is that in which the Quran was revealed, guidance to men and clear proofs of the guidance and the distinction; therefore whoever of you is present in the month, he shall fast therein…” Quran 2:185

“God commanded fasting for you just as he commanded it for those who were before you so that you would be upright”. Al-Baqarah 2:183

Also some Ramadan Hadith are also available which are told by the followers of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).These ahadith help us.

Hazrat Abu Huraira said that I have heared Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to say“ALLAH said Ibn_e_Adam did all deeds for himself accept fasting as fasting is for me and I will return for it. Swear to ALLAH who is the responsible of the life of Muhammad (PBUH) that the smell coming from fasting person mouth is favors than the person brushed his teeth”.

At the time of iftar Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was used to recite a dua (prayer) before breaking his fast that is “O ALLAH, for you have I fasted and with what you have provided do I break fast”.

As the crescent moon is sighted… And the Holy month of Ramadan begins… ALLH will bless us with happiness and grace our home with warmth and grace.

ease after hardship

mobile applications for islamic guidelines like i pray and iQuran

PATERSON, N.J – The most ancient traditions of IslamIslam reviews are going high-tech, with a slew of modern offerings for those observing the holy month of Ramadan, which begins this week.

CellCell reviews phone applications such as “iPray” or “iQuran” offer a beeping reminder of requisite prayer times, while the “Find Mecca” and “mosque finder” programs help the Muslim traveler in an unfamiliar city find the nearest place to pray.

“When I saw these applications for the first time, I thought: this is amazing,”

said James Otun, who has several Islamic applications on his Apple iPhone and iPad.

“Whoever came up with this idea: GodGod reviews bless him or her.”

The applications aren’t just for Ramadan; there are Islamic-themed programs that help users find the nearest Costco offering foods prepared according to Islamic dietary rules, learn the correct Arabic pronunciations in a daily prayer, or count how many pages of the Quran they’ve read that day – all on a mobile phone.

There also are applications, or apps, for the holy books of several other religions, from the Catholic Holy Bible to the Bhagavad Gita, a sacred Hindu scripture.

The first time Sumeyye Kalyoncu heard the Adhan – or call to prayer – through surround-sound speakers on her iPhoneiPhone dock, she was overcome with nostalgia for her native Turkey.

Such applications are especially popular in the U.S.,

Kalyoncu said, as U.S. mosques do not broadcast daily calls to prayer from external loudspeakers, as they do in Muslim countries.

“These are traditions and these have been in our lives for ages, like almost 15 centuries, so they seem very old,”

Kalyoncu said.

“I think this is like combining together the technology and the things that we do daily.”

Kalyoncu uses an iPhone app called iPray Lite, keeping track of requisite daily prayers with a program that simulates the clicking sound of prayer beads or the turning wheel of a handheld metal counter Muslims use to keep count of prayer repetitions. Using headphones, the 24-year-old says she can now fulfill her daily spiritual obligations by counting prayers on her iPhone while on the commuter bus toManhattanManhattan reviews from her Edgewater home.



Some apps are free. Those that are not generally range from about 99 cents to $2.99, although some are more expensive.

The dates of Ramadan still are determined by the lunar calendar, and calculations can differ among Islamic communities around the world. In North America, many Muslims will mark the first day of Ramadan on WednesdayWednesday reviews.

But Islam never has been at odds with innovation, said Zinnur Tabakci, who runs anIslamic religious book and gift shop in Paterson, N.J..

“Islam is not against technology. Now you can do it easier, faster,”

said Tabakci, who recently supplemented the strings of traditional prayer beads and religious texts he sells with a wall of mobile phone accessories to keep up with demand.

“Islam started 1,400 years ago, and at that time, they didn’t have that much technology, but they knew everything,”

he added.

The mosque Tabakci attends in Paterson, called Ulu Cami, or “Great Mosque,” has gone high-tech, too. After 16 cameras were installed for security purposes, one innovative mosque attendee began using them to broadcast services live over theInternetInternet so those too sick or otherwise unable to attend could watch daily prayers online from home. Mosque leaders say the live broadcasts have become especially popular among relatives of immigrants who like to tune in from overseas to hear the same prayers as their loved ones in New JerseyNew Jersey reviews.

Otun, a technology aficionado, says the apps on his iPhone and iPad make him a more observant Muslim. From the beeping reminder to stop and pray during his busy schedule running a limo service, to an app that tells him which nearby restaurants serve food prepared within Islamic guidelines, Otun says there’s no longer an excuse to live an unobservant life.

“If you forgot to pray, you might not be responsible, because you’re human; you forget and you can make it up later,”

said Otun, 35. “But not now that you have those apps, that might change things in God’s level.”

Otun’s favorite application, called Find Mecca, is a compass-like program with an electronic indicator that changes from red to green when you’ve reached the requisite prayer angle of 58 degrees, Northeast, to ensure you’re facing Mecca from any location – a requirement of all Muslims when praying.

Otun said he was amazed to see an image of Mecca on his cell phone screen for the first time, and to realize he could carry a library of religious texts with him everywhere.

“iPhone makes you emotional,”

he said.

“I can’t carry 10,000 pages of books, now, you have it in your phone – it’s priceless.”
