Make Quran your constant companion; the more you sit with it, the more it honours you, gives you its secrets and elevates your status.
This world is designed to distract you and the Quran is designed to remind you.
Ibn al-Qayyim said : “If your heart is thirsty, then do not quench it except with the Quran, and if your heart feels empty then do not fill it up except with the remembrance of Allah.”
Just remember there’s always barakah when you recite the Quran. Try to make an effort this season to build a connection with the Quran by reciting it whenever you can, even if it’s a line or two, read something everyday. This way, you’ll be able to do more during Ramadan.
كل الأشياء إن تركتها تذبل إلا القرآن إن تركته ذبلت “Everything you neglect will deteriorate except the Quran: If you neglecting it, it is you who deteriorates.”
You can’t go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and change the ending.
If you’re lagging behind, feel that you didn’t do enough, are overwhelmed and burdened to the point your heart comes to your throat because you cannot see the road ahead.. Hold yourself right there.
Allah has promised you that He will be there for you whenever you call upon Him. Ask Allah to show you the right path ahead and start walking. Ask Allah to ease your pain and increase in His Remembrance. Ask Allah to grant you righteous companionship, believers as friends and supporters and strive to be a better, loyal and principled friend to others.
Allah will never burden you, never let you drown as long as you hold onto Him. Allah will part the ocean of distress for you and a solid pathway to ease when you submit your woes, sorrows, pain and troubles to Him.
Only look upto Him for help and He will rescue you–for His help isn’t temporary, but will carry you to a peaceful abode at the end of this road.
Reading a book by your favourite author has a positive impact on your mood and helps you in relaxing.
Then, what would the Book that your Lord revealed and called a healing for that which is in the hearts and a form of mercy and guidance for the believers?
Give Quran the best of your time and attention – not the remainder.
يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ قَدْ جَآءَتْكُم مَّوْعِظَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَشِفَآءٌ لِّمَا فِى ٱلصُّدُورِ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ سورو يونس ٥٧ O humanity! Indeed, there has come to you a warning from your Lord, a cure for what is in the hearts, a guide, and a mercy for the believers. Surah Yunus 57
