Understand The Qur’an
وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا الْقُرْآنَ لِلذِّكْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ
“Indeed we have made the Qur’an easy to understand and remember so is there anyone who will receive the reminder?”
(Surah Al-Qamar 54:17,22,32,40)
This point is emphasized four times in one Surah. Even though the Qur’an includes some passages which require explanation of scholars, the general message of the Qur’an is easy to grasp and understand, and the entire Qur’an is easy to memorize.
In fact, the level of ease that Allah has placed in memorizing the Qur’an is a miracle in of itself. The idea of millions of young Muslims who don’t understand a word of Arabic being able to memorize the entire Qur’an in Arabic word for word is something unmatched in human history.
Yet despite, Allah making the Qur’an so easy and accessible to us, how many Muslims make an effort to recite, understand and follow the teachings of the Qur’an? This is the question Allah asks us four times in this Surah and this is the question we should constantly ask ourselves and introspect. Do we recite the Qur’an on a daily basis? Do we make a daily attempt to increase our understanding of the Qur’an? Do we follow the teachings of the Qur’an in every aspect of our lives? Ponder over these questions and if any of the answers are negative, make a committed effort to change your relationship with Allah’s book.
