Prepared & Presented by Mukhtar Farid In the name of Allah the most Beneficial the most Merciful
Surah Al-Fatiúah is read minimum of Seventeen Times in a day in Obligatory Prayers. No doubt we must follow the Manners of recitation of Holy Quran for reading all the Quran. However the act which we perform the most is programmed in our mind and thus not much of the care is paid. Following Slides showing Ayat describing the manners of reading Holy Quran
فَإِذَا قَرَأْتَ الْقُرْآنَ فَاسْتَعِذْ بِاللّهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ 16:98. So when you recite the Quran, [first] seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the expelled [from His mercy].
وَإِذَا قُرِىءَ الْقُرْآنُ فَاسْتَمِعُواْ لَهُ وَأَنصِتُواْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ 7:204 7:204. So when the Qur’an is recited, then listen to it and pay attention that you may receive mercy.
فَإِذَا قَرَأْنَاهُ فَاتَّبِعْ قُرْآنَهُ (75:18) 75:18. So when it is read then follow (With all your mind) its recitation. Allah says in verse 75:16 (O Mohammad) do not haste with reading but read it such that every word is followed properly It may be for its meaning as well follow the instruction recited to you
ثُمَّ إِنَّ عَلَيْنَا بَيَانَهُ 75:19. Then upon Us is it’s clarification The Arabic text from Ayat 16 to 19 is so beautiful that rhythm could not be translated. It is very clear that when you read and follow every word Allah takes responsibility to explain you the Ayat; “what are the commandments”.
There are three verbs used for reciting/reading Quran قَرَأْتَ الْقُرْآنَ رَتِّلِ الْقُرْآنَ يَتْلُونَ كِتَابَ اللَّهِ او يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ
The Word Quran is from Qura قـَرَأ i.e. “To Read” قَرَأْتَ الْقُرْآنَ Translated as Read or recite Quran رَتِّلِ الْقُرْآنَ Translated as read Quran with correct pronunciations يَتْلُونَ كِتَابَ اللَّهِ او يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ Yatlu is translated as “rehearsing” Or read Ayat with emphasizing on the meaning of it or explaining to follow the commandments
Allah assigned task of explaining Quran to the Prophet (PBUH) لَقَدْ مَنَّ اللّهُ عَلَى الْمُؤمِنِينَ إِذْ بَعَثَ فِيهِمْ رَسُولاً مِّنْ أَنفُسِهِمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَإِن كَانُواْ مِن قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلالٍ مُّبِينٍ (3:164) 3:164 Certainly did Allah confer [great] favor upon the believers when He sent among them a Messenger from themselves, reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom, although they had been before in manifest error.
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَتْلُونَ كِتَابَ اللَّهِ وَأَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَأَنفَقُوا مِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ سِرًّا وَعَلَانِيَةً يَرْجُونَ تِجَارَةً لَّن تَبُورَ 35:29. Indeed, those who recite the Book of Allah and establish prayer and spend [in His cause] out of what We have provided them, secretly and publicly, [can] expect a profit that will never perish The word used is “Yetloon” It is recitation with application.
هُوَ الَّذِي بَعَثَ فِي الْأُمِّيِّينَ رَسُولًا مِّنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَإِن كَانُوا مِن قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلَالٍ مُّبِينٍ (62:2) 62:2 It is He who has sent among the unlettered a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom although they were before in clear error
الَّذِينَ آتَيْنَاهُمُ الْكِتَابَ يَتْلُونَهُ حَقَّ تِلاَوَتِهِ أُوْلَـئِكَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِهِ وَمن يَكْفُرْ بِهِ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ هُمُ الْخَاسِرُونَ (2:121) 2:121. Those to whom We have given the Book recite it with its true recital (Rehearsal). They [are the ones who] believe in it. And whoever disbelieves in it, they who are the losers. حَقَّ تِلاَوَتِهِ The meaning of this is very deep and pages could be written to explain what is the “Haq of Tilawat” It is very clear that one should understand what Quran asks for. It is the right of your Lord. If we say that we have submitted our will to our Lord, then, are we following each and every instructions? This is to lead our right destination. Shaikh Yusuf Estes says Islam is the only religion which guarantees you, “Hell Fire” if you loose your right path.
To achieve right path a simple way of explanation Let us take a simple example of driving car. We want to reach our destination safely without loosing our way. On the road there are many signs guiding you direction. There are other signs which tells you to drive slowly if you are about to approach a sharp curve, or steep climbing up or climbing down. These signs are for your safety. Similarly Quran has many signs (Ayat) and they have to be followed, to reach our destination safely.
بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمـَنِ الرَّحِيمِ 1:1. In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. When we read this Ayat we should imagine “We are opening our communication with Allah and imagine that He is the most merciful.
الْحَمْدُ للّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ 1:2 All praise is due to Allah alone, the Sustainer of all the worlds When we read the first two words “ الْحَمْدُ للّهِ ” we should ask a question the praise is to whom? “It is for the Lord of Worlds.” Imagine the entire universe and beyond. Swim in this imagination.
الرَّحْمـنِ الرَّحِيمِ 1:3 The Most Gracious, the Dispenser of mercy You are talking to the Lord, again reminding yourself that he is the most merciful.
مَـالِكِ يَوْمِ الدِّينِ 1:4 Sovereign of the Day of Recompense. Or Lord of the Day of Judgment Bring in your imagination you are standing in sea of people around you. Expecting his mercy. It is the day of result of our deeds. 82:19 [It will be] a Day when no human being shall be of the least avail to another human being: for on that Day all sovereignty is God's alone. يَوْمَ لا تمِلكُ نفسٍ لٌنفسٍ شَيـٌا وَا لأ مرُ يــوْمَئذٍ لِلٌهِ
إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ 1:5 It is You we worship and we ask you for help. Consider in your imagination that you are in front of your Lord and need help. And why we ask Him the help because we worship Him alone, so we cannot ask help from anyone else. What help? To guide us to the right path
اهدِنَــــا الصِّرَاطَ المُستَقِيمَ 1:6 اهدِنَــــا الصِّرَاطَ المُستَقِيمَ 1:6 Guide us to the straight path Repeat the request as He listen. If you ask right things from bottom of your Heart He may grant You are standing in front of King of King. Who has every power and thus your way of request must be very humble way.
صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنعَمتَ عَلَيهِمْ غَيرِ المَغضُوبِ عَلَيهِمْ وَلاَ الضَّالِّينَ The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray. You are asking for right path, path of those who received His favor Their destination is Heaven Not the path of those who evoked anger of Allah. They did not obey his instructions and lost their path ending in a very wrong place. “The Hell Fire” Imagine and fear Him so that when Allah look at you He may boast his mercy as you are afraid to loose path
So be on Right Path and follow all signs given which directs you to Haven or …… إِمَّا شَاكِرًا وَإِمَّا كَفُورًا إِنَّا هَدَيْنَاهُ السَّبِيلَ 76:3 Verily, We have shown him the way: and it rests with him to prove himself either grateful or ungrateful.
فَإِذَا جَاءتِ الصَّاخَّةُ But when there comes the Deafening Blast يَوْمَ يَفِرُّ الْمَرْءُ مِنْ أَخِيهِ On the Day a man will flee from his brother وَأُمِّهِ وَأَبِيهِ And his mother and his father وَصَاحِبَتِهِ وَبَنِيهِ And his wife and his children, لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مِّنْهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ شَأْنٌ يُغْنِيهِ For every man, that Day, will be a matter adequate for him.
