Living Quran

Like all believers, we Muslims see our Holy Book as a call for righteous actions, not mere intellectual or spiritual messages disconnected from our everyday life.

When the wife of the Prophet was asked to describe what he was like in his everyday life, she said that his character was a living Quran. If we read the Quran, then that’s the ideal “reading” that we strive to attain. Reading that leads to action. Prophet Muhammad used to pray God to protect him from knowledge that brings no benefit. This could mean inaccurate knowledge, or knowledge that one makes no effort to implement in his/her actions.

Muslims strive to memorize the Quran in its original Arabic. Some (not uncommon) memorize the whole book. Others memorize passages or complete chapters. I think it was Omar Ibnel-Khattab who said that the companions of the Prophet would not move to memorizing any new passages of the Quran until they feel they’re done implementing into action what they already learned. How many of our memorizing efforts nowadays follow this standard?!

When we’re told that: “And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind?” (Quran, 54:17), we can think of how the language of the Quran is so unique, musical and concise that some verses just seem to jump into our mind when a thought or an incident brings it up. Which makes it even easier to remind ourselves of the Quranic teachings when we need to.

I will try to use this blog to share the verses that catch my attention, and my thoughts on how to transform them into lived principles instead of mere chanted words!

    I am sorry if you get offended but this chanting of the islamic stuff is one of the most boring and uncomfortable noises any real person wants to listen too!!!!

    I grew up listening to this stuff 3-5 times a day all over the streets where I lived, I am sick of it,IT give me the geebees.

    It was the best thing when I moved here not to wake up to that screaching voices of mullas from the top of the mosque every day.

    If you like it sooooooo much I wish you would move back to your country and listen to it all you want, I do not understand why you want to live here.
    sorry if I offended you, I have no intentions of doing that at all, this is just how I feel about it
    I hope you do not mind expressing my true feelings here.
    have a great day.
