A Cultural Practice

Some people associate the recitation of Quran culturally with death, and assume that Quran is a source of sad reminders and punishments alone.

Allah revealed the Quran to provide us with a guiding light, and heal our hearts, and surround us with mercy and blessings. Quran was not meant to be recited for a while at someone’s deathbed, it is meant to be resided in all seasons of our lives.

The punishments mentioned in the Quran are for those who don’t take heed and arrogantly turn away from submission to their Lord.

As for the believers, the Quran will guide the seekers of the truth and all those who wish to attain the mercy of their Lord.

وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَاءٌ وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۙ وَلَا يَزِيدُ الظَّالِمِينَ إِلَّا خَسَارًا

“And We send down of the Qur’an that which is healing and mercy for the believers, but it does not increase the wrongdoers except in loss.”

سورة الإسراء
