“Turning away from the remembrance of Allah leads to difficulties in the life of this world and the next. What are my plans for staying connected to the Quran once this course ends ?”
I remember when I joined this course, my teacher asked me during the interview what I planned on doing after I was done with the course. I answered saying I wasn’t sure. I didn’t really think much of the question. When I joined , I thought I’ll just complete the course and that’s it . There won’t be anything to do after that. I’ll have a better understanding of the Quran and also a certificate to prove I’ve done the course. I was so wrong!
After having studied the Quran I’ve now come to realize that this course isn’t just ANY other course. Learning the Quran is not a 2 to 3 year studying course, it’s a lifetime course.
I was recently reading the biography of Ibn Qayyim and saw that he didn’t just have one teacher he had a total of 21 teachers. The pious predecessors had a deep desire for acquiring more and more knowledge and spent most of their lives learning and teaching the ilm of deeen.
InshaAllah I plan on staying connected with the Quran by remaining a student of it for as long as I live: by attending classes where the Quran is taught or attending different lectures. I hope to inshaAllah teach what I’ve learnt of the Quran to others as well. This is something that would be a bit difficult to do but by doing so I can connect others to the Quran and remain connected to the Quran as well.
