Learning Quran for a Beginner P1
03 Nov 2019
The holy Quran is the main religious reference that all Muslims should follow in order to be steered towards the right path and eventually paradise. It is mandatory for any Muslim to acquire as much as possible of the immense knowledge included in the Quran. There are usually two types of people who we consider to be absolute beginners in learning Quran: children and adults who are either converts or second/third generation Arab immigrants. Learning the Quran for a beginner – be it a child or an adult – entails several steps and points to be taught as well as understood:
Why is learning the Quran for a beginner essential?
Learning the Quran for a beginner is mandatory because it’s the base on which Muslims build their faith and is the main guide regarding all worldly matters. It contains the main doctrine of the Islamic faith and a code of conduct that handles a plethora of subjects: be it social values, judicial law, civil law, as well as health and creation. All these subjects serve a central theme within the Quran, which is the oneness of Allah (SWT).
For reading each letter of the Quran, a Muslim is granted ten rewards by Allah. Therefore, the Quran is a Muslim’s road and guide to paradise (Jannah). Teaching your children the Quran from a young age instills in them the values and doctrines of Islam. Additionally, a Muslim's faith is strengthened if the Quran becomes a constant companion in his daily life. Furthermore, with extra effort and the proper guidance, learning the Quran for a beginner -even if you are an adult- is definitely possible and not as difficult as it seems.
