The Quran is a self-sufficient Book
The Quran is a self-sufficient Book
The great scholars, the master of reciters in Madina (may Allah protect them)
When people ask a lot of people about how to memorize the Quran when it comes to these great
people who have spent sixty to seventy years reciting and teaching The Quran and their whole lives
were spent on teaching The Quran, when asking them about the best way to memorize The Quran,
they say that the best way to memorize The Quran they replied by The Prophet’s advice,
“Read the Qur’an regularly. By the One in Whose Hand Muhammad’s soul is, it escapes from
memory faster than a camel does from its tying ropes.” (read The Quran regularly)
It’s simple, we argue so much but at last, we go back to the Prophet’s adviceصلى الله عليه وسلم (Read The
Quran regularly) Having a daily part of The Quran recitation even it is little
‘A’isha reported God’s Messengerصلى الله عليه وسلم as saying, “The acts most pleasing to God are those
which are done most continuously, even if they amount to little.”
You should have a daily part of The Quran like what you do with food and drink, like a routine you
mustn’t give up on it even if it is little, and with time, this little part will increase Insha’Allah.
Until you reach a stage when Allahعزوجل honors you, you should make Du’a day and night in the
prostration: “Oh Allah makes the great Quran be the spring of my heart, the light in my chest, Help
me Allah against my evil soul.”
Because the people of Quran are the people of Allah and those who are closest to Him سبحانه وتعالى.
Allah chooses those who are worthy to be closer to Him, Allah must see your desire that you need to
be of the people of The Quran.
Ask Allahعزوجل to honor you to be skilled in The Quran, if you take a daily part, Allahعزوجل will
grant you success to be skilled in The Quran, paths will be open for you.
Allah says in Surah Al-Qamar: 22
“And We have certainly made the Qur’an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will
The Quran is a self-sufficient Book
Musa عليه السلام is unique among the messengers of Allah, he got to engage in regular and engaging
conversation with Allah. “And Allah spoke to Moses with [direct] speech.” Surah An-nisa: 164
Allah engaged in lots of conversations back. Allah would initiate a lot of that conversation and he
would engage in it as they would have a lot of exchange. This is a beautiful thing between him and
Allah that is special. But you know, he got to speak to Allah so much but he never got to see Him
سبحانه وتعالى. And obviously among the human beings what a great honor up until this point that no
messenger has received that you actually get to speak directly to Allah, personally.
So the desire came that: “I just want to see you.” So he talked to Him for so long he says, “My Lord,
show me [Yourself] that I may look at You.”
“[Allah] said, “You will not see Me, but look at the mountain; if it should remain in place, then you
will see Me.” But when his Lord appeared to the mountain, He rendered it level, and Moses fell
unconscious. And when he awoke, he said, “Exalted are You! I have repented to You, and I am the
first [among my people] of the believers.”
Surah Al-A’araf: 143
When His master manifested some of His glory to the mountain, the glory itself made it explode.
Musa fell unconscious. When he woke up he said: “How far above that you are. I repent, I’m sorry
for what I said. I’m the first to believe. In other words, this wasn’t about I don’t believe but, O Allah I
knew I crossed the line.
“Take what I have given you and be among the grateful”
Allah عزوجل has given us certain things that bring us close to Him and He hasn’t given us certain
things like we don’t get to see Him. We don’t get to see the angels. We don’t get to see Jannah
We get to hear it. We get to read descriptions on it but we don’t get to see it.
And for some people they say, I want to believe but I have particular requirements myself, I will only
believe when I see, if only I can see a Jinn or if you Muslims can show me something from the
Unseen. It’s actually called the Unseen for a reason”.
Allah made it Unseen for that reason. It’s part of our faith to believe in the Unseen.
You can reach it through an intellectual process, even a spiritual process, but it’s defined as “The
Unseen”. And some say even though Musaعليه السلام had good intentions, he had been speaking to
Allah for so long, he was longing to see Him. Other people don’t have such good intentions. They
say: “Well, I will be convinced if I see Him, I will believe it once I see Him.”
So Allah told Musa: “O Moses, I have chosen you over the people with My messages and My words
[to you]. So take what I have given you and be among the grateful.”
Look at what Allah said to him: “Take what I have given you”
And be grateful. You’re asking more than I have given you. I have given you more than anybody else.
Now imagine when it applied to us. Allah has given us The Quran!
If you think The Quran is not enough for you to develop your faith and you need something greater,
remind the words that Allah عزوجل reminded Musaعليه السلام of “So take what I have given you and be
among the grateful.”
You actually haven’t grabbed on to The Quran yet, because if you experienced this Holy Book and
really engaged in this Book, you would know that there is nothing more to ask for.
How can I ask for more than Allah’s word!
Another place in the Quran, Allahعزوجلsays:
“And is it not sufficient for them that We revealed to you the Book [i.e., the Qur’an] which is recited
to them? Indeed in that is a mercy and reminder for a people who believe.”
Surah Al-‘Ankabut: 49
Allah put it in this way, isn’t it enough for them? Because they asked the messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم:
“Show us a miracle.” And Allah said, “No. isn’t it enough that I sent a book?”
If you have a weak Eman (faith), and you’re like “How can I strengthen my faith?”
If you have a hard time fighting your temptations and a hard time killing old bad habits, this is a
disease in your chest.
Allah says in Surah Yunus: 57
“O mankind, there has come to you instruction from your Lord and healing for what is in the breasts
and guidance and mercy for the believers.”
The Quran has healing what lies in the chest. You haven’t given it a chance rather you
underestimated its power to change you into something far better than what you are now. The
Quran can transform you completely.
Finally, we Muslims, Allah عزوجل has given us something that we couldn’t ask for more of and if we
spend our lifetime trying to exhaust ourselves understanding the meanings of The Quran, The
wisdom, and The guidance, the council of this book, it’s not going to be exhausted.
When we get a taste of this great Book, and that taste makes you addicted to wanting to learn more
and more and more about The Quran. And that addiction you desire to heal yourself.
