Ramadan; The month of Quran

Ramadan; The month of Quran


Ramadan, now known as the Month of fasting was earlier known as the month of the Quran. That is to say, Allah revealed the Quran in the month of Ramadan. The process of the revelation of the Quran began in the month of Ramadan. Allah revealed the Quran on our Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). Further, Quran has 6332 verses, 114 Surahs, and 30 chapters. Then it was the Prophet (peace be upon him) who spread this Divine Message among humanity. Moreover, he made sure that each verse was recorded and written exactly the way as it was revealed.

“The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.” (2:185)


Ramadan & Quran makes us closer to Allah


So, it is in the month of Ramadan that Muslims have the opportunity to renew this memory and remember this month as the month of revelation of the Quran. Although we should not only recite Quran, but also understood it during the month of Ramadan, it should be recited every day of the year. But, reciting Quran has a great reward in this Holy Month. Moreover, Ramadan is the month in which we observe fast for Allah. Therefore we need to connect ourselves to Allah more. So, Quran being His final and the last message to humankind is what draws us the most closest to Him. In short, Quran is the speech of Allah. So, it is through Quran that Allah talks to us.


Understanding Quran in the Holy month


Quran is in the Arabic language. That is to say, there are many Muslims worldwide who do not understand the Arabic language. Consequently, they find it harder to comprehend. However, even the recitation of Quran in the Arabic language has great rewards. So, there is no harm in reciting Quran in the Arabic language. However, it is significant that we understand the Book of Allah along with its menacing. Otherwise, we will never know what Allah is trying to convey to us.

Moreover, Muslims worldwide can get Quranic language through QuraOnline. It offers courses such as Quran Translation and Quran Tafseer. Consequently, Muslims can easily learn Quran through QuraOnline by sitting at home and deciding the time and day of their choice.

So, understanding the Quran would certainly double the reward. So, we should make efforts to understand Quran with its meaning in Ramadan and then continue this routine throughout life. As a result, Muslims will get closer to Allah. Further, by understanding the Message of Allah we can guide ourselves to the straight path.
