Al-Qur'an Al-Kareem

The Glorious Quran is the word of Almighty Allah which was revealed upon the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). The Quran is the most exalted book of Almighty Allah and is a guidance for the entire mankind. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) taught the Quran to more than 100 000 Sahaba-e-Kiraam and from amongst them approximately 10 000 Sahaba-e-Kiraam were Huffaaz of the Glorious Quran. There is no room for doubt in the Holy Quran and no person can even make one Surah equivalent to the Surah of the Holy Quran. It is essential to bring Imaan on every word in the Quran and to refute even one word in the Quran is Kufr. The Quran cannot be touched without Ghusl and Wudhu. To read the Quran is a great way of Ibaadah and to look at and to touch the Quran with love is a means for great blessing and reward. 

It is not even permissible to read the Quran from memory when you are in an impure state. To recite Ta'ooz (A'uzubillah) before reciting the Quran is Waajib (compulsory) and to recite the Tasmiyah (Bismillah) is Sunnah (Tradition) and Mustahab (desirable). To recite the Quran in a loud voice in a huge gathering is disallowed. The Quran should be recited softly in a gathering where many people are reciting the Quran. When the Quran is being recited aloud, it is Fardh for all those present to listen attentively. To be a Hafiz of the Holy Quran is a very great gift and an act worthy of great blessing, but to learn the Quran and then to allow it to be forgotten is a great sin. When a page of the Quran tears or becomes old, then it should be wrapped in a clean piece of material, and buried in a small grave (hole). 

If the Quran falls from your hand unintentionally, it should be picked up and kissed. One should repent for this error and take flour (wheat) equivalent to the weight of the Quran and give it as Khairaat. It is Waajib to respect and honour the Glorious Quran. One should not face his feet or back towards the Quran. One should also not sit higher than the Quran, since these are all acts of disrespect. When confronted with a problem, turn to the Holy Quran. All your problems will be solved with great swiftness. Read the Holy Quran and also teach it. This is the true teaching of Islam.
