Ramadhan desserts ( part 20)
ابو حنظلة محمد زهري
وَإِذَا تُلِيَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتُهُ زَادَتْهُمْ إِيمَانًا
' and when His ayats are recited to them they increase them in faith'
Another sign of the believer is when he heard His words being recited his iman increases. We have heard so many Quran but have it increases our iman. What are some of the ways for our iman to increase when we hear the Quran?
a) our salafussoleh, pious predecessors really believe that the Quran is the word of Allah, and treat it with respect. They will learn a few ayats, understand the meaning, memorise it, practice it, convey it and then proceed to learn new ayats. But we are just concerned about how it sounds only without pondering on its meanings.
b) out Adab with the Quran
The predecessors have a 2 way communication with the quran whereas that is not in our case. We treat the Quran as just some kind of amulet or beautification. We beautify our houses, cars and etc with the Quran but we do not beautify our hearts with it.
c) the Quran is our loved Almighty's word
Another major problem is that our love to Him is just superficial. If we have a deep love to Him we will treat His words seriously and with love. When we get a message from our missed loved ones, we will missed them, cherishing every words of the message and shed a tear or two. But that is not in our case with the quran.
