How to Develop Relationship with Quran
Since the Quran is a book of unlimited knowledge in form of ciphered messages, hence to understand it well, we need to create a relationship with it to gain true knowledge. Surely, the deeper your relation with Quran, the higher would be your stature in terms of gaining true knowledge. There are many ways to develop a relationship with Quran. We have gathered 5 basic tips that can help you out.
- Purify and Cleanse Yourself before reading Quran
The first and foremost duty of a Muslim before touching the Quran is to be neat and clean because it is a book of Allah. So, doing ablution is physical preparation that you are not only reading this but you are interacting to Allah. This is not only mandatory but also helps in washing away all the impurities and prevents yourself from satanic traps –a purified body is prevented from evils and satan. This way, Satan can’t pollute the knowledge you gain from reading the Quran.
- Have Eternal Faith on Every Word
A firm belief that is clean from any doubt should be developed as you open the Quran. In Surah Baqarah, ayah 2, Allah has said;
So, clean your heart from any doubt while you read the message of Allah ﷻ Himself.
- Read a single page a day with the assurance of Understanding
Establish a habit of reading the Holy Quran on daily basis. You can choose early hours of Fajr or late night instances after Isha prayer to read a few pages just to understand the meaning and context of the holy verses. This habit is the fastest way to create a vital relationship with Holy Quran. Also, make sure you’ve understood what you have read.
- Quran Is More Interactive Than Internet
The technology has made everything so easily understandable but reading the sacred book by yourself gives you true understandings. Since Arabic is not everyone’s native language, so it’s better to get the book with translations of your native language. When you pay attention to the words, you would start feeling the conversation of Allah. You can write down the meaning of each verse and try to fetch all the contexts as it is proved already that each verse has so many meanings and every human could see it in his own perspective. There is also a hidden message for the reader that is directly applied on his current life scenario.
Quran is very helpful in every walk of our life as it has very important lessons for us as a Muslim. So, if we read it daily our life will become easier and no tension in our life. This is our relationship with Quran.
