Many of you are new to Islam and be ensured that you are not at all discouraged when you hear how others have been finishing Juzz after Juzz of the Qura’an, but you have done only a little. The quantity does matter; but the main thing is your Niyyah; the purer your intentions are, the better will be your act and the virtuous will be the rewards in the HereAfter!
I stumbled upon a lady recently, who was a revert and was really trying hard to read and understand the vocabulary of the Quran. For each few Verses she read and understood, she even attempted to note them down, right here on this very platform, hoping that some other Muslims would also benefit from her writings. Subhan Allah! What a great work she was doing, I must say.
I was really very impressed by her actions and the above Hadith of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) throws light on the efforts made by all the kids or reverts as beginners, when they begin to read the Quran in Arabic Script but lack of language skills and knowledge does not allow them to speed up, or do it as thoughtfully as adults or seniors in the field. If you would like to know how to understand vocabulary from the Quran, read a few tips by clicking here.
My younger son faced difficulty in pronouncing the correct sound of each Arabic letter in the beginning and still now, he sometimes does not remember the proper Tajweed rules that apply to each Verse of the Quran. He gets fidgety many a times as to why I cannot recite it like my brother and so on… but this very Hadith explains how much Allah Subhan ahu Wa Ta’ala loves us, how much He is willing to provide to us, if only we were to try and make an effort!
So all of you who are learning how to read, who cannot do it properly due to lack of development of vocal cords, who stammer, or are facing some other issue, do not despair; for you are promised to be provided with more rewards than them, for each error you make and an effort to correct your error you make, you are awarded more times than the one who does it correctly the first time through 🙂 Great.. isn’t it?
What do you have to say about this? Do let me know here!
