The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: "Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action". [Saheeh Muslim]

Build A Daily Relationship with Qur’aan

flower bism

3Abd-Allaah ibn Mas3ood said: The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Whoever reads a letter of the Book of Allaah will be credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a tenfold reward. I do not say that Alif-Laam-Meem is a letter, rather alif is a letter, laam is a letter and meem is a letter.” (1)

Imaam al-Nawawee said: “Reciting Qur’aan is the most important of adhkar, which should be done regularly. No day or night should be without it and it may be attained by reciting a few verses.” (2)

Salamah ibn Suhayl used to say: “The month of Sha3baan is the month of reciters (of the Qur’aan)”

Some Tips to build a Daily Relation with Qur’aan:

Set a time for your daily Qur’aan recitation.

✅ Better to make it after Fajr salaah & adhkar, or before Fajr or after 3Asr (depending on each person’s situation).

✅ Do not use this time (after Fajr) for net, emails, Facebook or whatsApp.

✅ Start off with 15-20 minutes to maximum 1/2 an hour (if you aren’t in the habit of reading regularly)

✅ Continue with this for 1 week (to get into the habit).

✅ If you missed the daily Qur’aan sitting any day, take time out from your sleep time or any other activity & cover it up before the next day.

✅ After one week, increase the recitation time to 30 minutes to 45 minutes & continue it for next full week.

✅ Do not use this time for reading Tafseer or translation. If you want to read translation or tafseer, set a separate time for it.

✅ Observe all the manners of reading the Qur’aan.

✅ Have a daily self checklist and mark when you are done.

Are You Planting the Seeds?

قال أبو بكر البلخي : شهر رجب شهر الزرع ، وشهر شعبان شهر سقي الزرع ، وشهر رمضان شهر حصاد الزرع 

Abu Bakr al-Balkhi said:

“The month of Rajab is the month for planting the seeds; the month of Sha3baan is the month of watering the seeds & the month of Ramadhan is the month of reaping the fruits.

Rajab Shaban Ramadaan

He also said: The likeness of the month of Rajab is that of the wind, the likeness of Sha3baan is that of the clouds and the likeness of Ramadaan is that of the rain; whoever does not plant and sow in Rajab, and does not irrigate in Sha3baan, how can he reap in Ramadaan?

Its Rajab…. are you Planting the seeds of good deeds & 3Ibaadah?

How Much We Have Prepared?

It was narrated from some of the salaf that they used to pray to Allaah for six months in advance to let them live until Ramadaan. The Sahaabah radiAllaahu 3anhum used to prepare for Ramadaan six months in advance. 

Jamadi-uth-thaani  is half over & Rajab will be here soon, ya3ni Ramadaan is just 2 1/2 months away.

So, how much have we prepared?

Yes, majority of us, if not all of us…

so what we are waiting for?

Sha3baan

Well, if truth be told, yes we are…

وَكُلَّ إِنسَـٰنٍ أَلۡزَمۡنَـٰهُ طَـٰٓٮِٕرَهُ ۥ فِى عُنُقِهِۦ*ۖ وَنُخۡرِجُ لَهُ ۥ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَـٰمَةِ ڪِتَـٰبً۬ا يَلۡقَٮٰهُ مَنشُورًا – ٱقۡرَأۡ كِتَـٰبَكَ كَفَىٰ بِنَفۡسِكَ ٱلۡيَوۡمَ عَلَيۡكَ حَسِيبً۬ا

And We have fastened every man’s deeds to his neck, and on the Day of Resurrection, We shall bring out for him a book which he will find wide open. (It will be said to him): “Read your book. You yourself are sufficient as a reckoner against you this Day”. [soorah Al-Israa, v:13-14]

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَلْتَنظُرْ نَفْسٌ مَّا قَدَّمَتْ لِغَدٍ ۖ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ

“O you who believe! Fear Allaah and keep your duty to Him. And let every person look to what he has sent forth for tomorrow, and fear Allaah. Verily, Allaah is All-Aware of what you do”. [soorah Al-Hashr, v: 18]
