أَفَمِنْ هَذَا الْحَدِيثِ تَعْجَبُونَ
“Then at this statement do you wonder?”
[Al-Qur’an – Surah An-Najm (The Star):59]
Do we truly value the Qur’an? If we think we do, we must look towards our actions and analyze whether they are according to what He has commanded.
Sometimes I feel apprehensive about telling people that I am studying the Qur’an. I don’t think it is because I am embarrassed; rather it is because I expect them to start questioning my decision or debate with me about it. However, I know that Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) brings us towards the Qur’an at whatever time is most suitable for us, as He knows best. Even if someone does begin to argue, Alhamdulillah I do have enough knowledge to be able to counter their arguments and show them that there is great benefit in learning the Qur’an this way.
When we do something we know is right, it should give us great confidence – and this is how it should be with regards to learning and implementing the Qur’an.
