Quran reading made easy

How To complete the QURAN in Ramadan:

The Qur’an has 600 pages approx.. If you divide it on 30 days, that’s 20 pages a day. You see, that’s difficult to do right? But, if you divide it on the 5 prayers a day, it gets easier:

*If you read 4 pages after every salah in ramadan, then you’ve completed the Qur’an.

*If you want to complete the Qur’an twice, you read 4 pages before and after every salah.

Imagine if you forward this message, how many people will benefit and complete the Qur’an. And it gets even better, because you would get the reward for them finding it easier to complete. InshaAllah.

Have you started reading your quran? Its still a good time to start.

You can aswell get a pocket quran to read while you’re less busy or for studying the interpretations.

You can also buy qurans and drop in mosque, you take credits for everyone that opens it.

Allah is indeed merciful.

Jazak Allah khair.

A day in a faster’s life

Do you want to protect yourself from the thirst of 50.000 years on the Day of Judgment?

When you fast one day in Ramadhan, this means you fast for 14 hours = 50.000 seconds.
Do you imagine that these 50.000 seconds protect you from the thirst of 50.000 years on the Day of Judgment?

This means that one second in Ramadhan equals an entire year of the years of thirst and heat on the Day of Judgment!!

Dear brother and sister, Ramadhan, once missed, cannot be recovered. It is enough that you missed many Ramadhans in your life. If you fell once, rise up and do not despair.

Let this Ramadhan be as if it were the last in your life. So, whet your resolution and start Ramadhan projects with us as much as possible:

Project (1): How to be a multi-millionaire in 30 days

Do you know that the good deeds of reciting the whole Qur’an on regular days = 3.3 million good deeds (it means that it cancels 3.3 million bad deeds). Multiplication of good deeds in Ramadhan makes the reward of umrah in Ramadhan = the reward of performing hajj with the Prophet (Peace be upon him). Then, what about the recitation of the whole Qur’an in Ramadhan? Here are hundreds of millions of good deeds in your hands. Would you let them go, then you shall regret every single good deed you lost on the Day of Judgment? Recitation of the whole Qur’an will make your balance more than that of millionaires and billionaires!!

Project (2): Ramadhan has changed me (Taraweeh) preparation project)

Taraweeh is: the restful night prayer in Ramadhan.
Prepare the part of the Qur’an to be recited at night during the taraweeh prayer. Read it after afternoon prayer with deliberation and reflection and you will realize the profound difference in your concentration at taraweeh prayer. (In this way, you will achieve two recitations of the whole Qur’an: the one at taraweeh and the one after afternoon prayer).If possible, read the interpretation of that part or listen to a cassette on the same topic.

Project (3): Lost Treasure
Many people waste their time after iftar although that if you read just one part of the Qur’an you will recite the whole Qur’an during the month. What prevents you from doing that: is it a comic program? Or an interview with an artist?

Project (4): What are you waiting for, brother? (Repentance Knights)

Promise Allah (the Almighty) in Ramadhan to repent every day from a certain sin and never perpetrate it again. On the first day, give up smoking; on the second, give up forbidden mingling with the other sex; on the third, stop listening to the forbidden songs; on the fifth, clean your mobile and hard desk from anything that can cause Allah’s wrath etc. (Try as much as possible to use television and the Internet beneficially in Ramadhan, and ever after).

Project (5):

What are you waiting for, sister? (Ramadhan Female Knights) Wear full hijab in Ramadhan, that of Lady Fatimah and Lady ‘Aishah (May Allah be pleased with them). For if you do not obtain Allah’s mercy while all doors of paradise and the seven heavens are
open, when then?

Project (6): Night Worshippers (Knights of Night Vigil Prayers)

Read this amazing hadith: (Every night in Ramadhan, Allah descends to the nearest heaven and asks: Is there no one asking forgiveness that I may forgive him? Is there no one asking sustenance that I may grant him sustenance? Is there no one under trial that I may relieve him? Is there not such-and-such, is there not such-and-such, and so forth until dawn rises.’). descends every night of the year during the last third of the night but in Ramadhan it is two thirds. Night in Ramadhan is a valuable opportunity for relief and forgiveness. What a chance for all of
us!! You can sleep tight only if you do not have sins, if you do not need anything from Allah (the Almighty), and if you do not long for the nearness of Allah in Paradise.

Project (7): First Kick
Let the beginning of the month the strongest. Once Ramadhan starts whet your resolution and insist that the first night would be the night Allah (the Almighty) protects you from hellfire. Let every night in Ramadhan be like that. (Every night Allah frees people from hellfire.) [Corrected by al-Alabni] You have 60 chances for protection from hellfire: every day and every night. One of them is enough; let it be!!

Project (8): Daily Seven Hajjs (pilgrimages) in Ramadhan
Do you know that if you go to perform ablution once you hear athan (prayer call) and then head to the mosque to pray, you will have the reward of hajj. (Whoever walks to an obligatory prayer in congregation, it is like hajj, and whoever walks to a voluntary prayer, it is like a voluntary umrah. The woman at home has the same reward. Another hajj: (Whoever prays fajr-morning prayers-in congregation, then sits remembering Allah until the sun rises, then prays two rakats, he will receive the reward of hajj, and umrah – complete, complete, complete.) This means you will have the reward of 30 times of hajj and umrah in Ramadhan. Another hajj: the Prophet (Peace be upon him) once said that the reward of attending a scholarly lesson is like that of hajj. If you pray taraweeh and listen to the brief sermon among the rakats, this would be a lesson. Be sensible and do not waste the reward of seven times of hajj daily.

Project (9): Keys of Allah’s Treasures
Do you know that in Ramadhan you have 60 supplications that will be rewarded? This means that 60 problems of your life can be solved or 60 dreams can come true. (For every Muslim, there is a rewarded supplication on every day and night) [Corrected by al-Albani]. If the richest person in the world gave you 60 blank checks, you would be in the air!! Allah (the Almighty) gives you 60 rewarded supplications. (Keep a small supplications booklet in your pocket and read in order not to waste the keys of Allah’s treasures).

Project (10): The Night of Life

The Night of Power is 12 hours that are better than one thousand months, that is, better than 720.000 hours (3/4 million hours). During that Night the hour is better than 60.000 hours (the ayah of the Qur’an during that Night is better than 60.000 ayahs in other nights and the rak’a is better than 60.000 rakats etc.) Indeed, (the one deprived from its bliss is the deprived indeed) [Hadith Sahih] It is really life night, visit your relatives, invite people to iftar (time of eating after fasting), call those you have a problem with, pray as much as possible, and forgive those who have wronged you.

Project (11): Be a Companion

(An umrah in Ramadhan is like accompanying me on hajj). [Sahih al-Bukhari] Only umrah in Ramadhan can make you like the Companions is accompanying the Prophet (Peace be upon him).

Project (12): Increase and Extend your Sustenance

Do you have a problem in sustenance? Do you search for a rewarding job? Do you want a good husband? Do you want to have children? Do you want a good wife? (Whoever wants an increase in his sustenance and that the marks of his feet remain for a long time in the world (i.e. to live long) – he should be kind and helpful to his relatives.) Do not forget to invite your relatives and neighbors for iftar in Ramadan.

Project (13): 30 Places in Paradise

These are not 30 palaces in the Riviera or the Northern Coast; they are in Paradise. Observe 12 rakats of sunnah every day (2 before fajr,
4 before noon and 2 after, 2 after maghrib, and 2 after isha.)

Project (14): Fasting Insurance

Every faster you invite for iftar gives you the reward of another fasting day in Ramadhan and the reward of one day can be multiplied by ten. If you invite 36 fasters it is as if you fasted 360 days, that is, as if you made the whole year an elongated Ramadhan. (Do not forget Ramadhan charity bag, putting date boxes at the Mosque, giving people date while going to the mosque, iftar of people on highways, and other situations).

Project (15): Intensive Care Project

I’tikaaf (seclusion) in the last ten days; the lives of many youth changed due to I’tikaaf and the writer is among them. Try that in order to be brought up again during these days.

Project (16): Direction of the Monies of Zakaat and Charity.
Islam Call Society (Tableegh al-Islam) which helped thousands to embrace Islam. Dear Muslim brothers and sisters everywhere do not let anything divert you away from good deeds in Ramadhan. Do not forget to call non-Muslims to Islam politely and decently through your words and deeds and prayer for them.

This is a great Ramadan reminder that I saw on a site. May Allah bless with great rewards for sharing. Ameen.

P.S: I am not promoting my blog and I am not getting a single cent for running this blog. Everything is for the sake of Allah in sha Allah.

10 great goals of Ramadan

I'm here!!! \=D/ \=D/ \=D/

I’m here!!! \=D/ \=D/ \=D/

Asalam alaikum,

Am so happy to finally be here, its so beautiful and unique, filled with blessing and change! Change which is watch-word. Islam is full of joy, peace and respect. As we start today Insha Allah bikurati lah, may we be amongst those that will scream Alhamdulilah at the end and may almighty Allah accept it as an act of ibadah. AMIN!

To start the gracious month, here are some things to look out for:

1. Eat, drink and be moderate

Almost all of us do it – once Iftar time hits, we just keep plowing food and drink into our mouths till it’s hard to move afterwards. And those of us who do it know this is totally contrary to the spirit of Ramadan, through which we’re supposed to learn self-control not self-indulgence. Let’s try to stick to the Prophetic rule on eating: fill our stomachs with one-third food, one-third water and one-third breathing space, even in Ramadan.

2. Give a dollar a day in charity…or five or ten

The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, was always generous but even more so in Ramadan. Let’s open our hearts and dig a little deeper in our wallets this year. Even less than a dollar a day adds up. Whatever you can give, it’s the intention that counts.

3. Memorize 4 new Surahs

Memorizing the Quran often seems like a daunting task. But the key is doing it in small bites. Since there are four weeks in Ramadan, try to memorize one new Surah a week. Start off with a short, easy one. Once you’ve started, you’ll build momentum and may even want to memorize a
longer one the following week.

4. Go to Tarawih prayers

Post-Iftar, the first urge is to sleep after an exhausting day. But try your best to head out to the mosque for Tarawih prayers. Praying alone is wonderful, but doing it in congregation is fantastic. The community spirit is part of Ramadan’s blessings. Don’t miss it this
year. If going every day is not possible, try going at least one week.

5. Attend the Tarawih prayer in which the recitation of the Quran will
be finished

Call the local mosque and find out which day the Imam will be finishing the recitation of the Quran in prayer. Attend to not only hear part of the Quran’s recitation in prayer, but also participate in the heart-rending Duas that follow it.

6. Stop swearing and/or backbiting – with a special box

It’s hard not to shoot our mouths off when someone’s upset us. Whether we utter those four-letter words or backbite about someone to our family and friends, we know this isn’t the God-approved way of letting off steam. In Ramadan, when we want to build our spirituality, we’ve got to wage Jihad against our bad habits.

Try this: get a box and every time you catch yourself swearing or backbiting put some money in it. It could be a buck or less. The point is to choose an amount that makes it feel like punishment.

At the end of the month send the money to a charity or buy a gift for
the person whom you’ve backbitten the most against.

7. Call/email your relatives

You’d think that given the easy access to email, competitive long-distance calling rates, phone cards, etc. these days, we’d keep in touch with family and friends more often. But the opposite seems to be the case, as we get caught up in life’s “busyness.”

Strengthening ties with family members and keeping in touch with
friends is part of our way of life and an act Allah is very pleased
with. This Ramadan, call family and friends or at least email them a
Ramadan card and ask them how their fasting is going.

8. Go on a technology diet

Even if you work in the IT industry, you can do this. Avoid checking
personal email and surfing the web during your fast. After Iftar,
instead of plopping yourself in front of the screen, go to Tarawih.
The same goes for the television. The point is to try to give our full
attention to spiritual elevation this month.

9. Read 5 minutes of Quran a day…just five, not more, not less

Even if you feel you’ve got absolutely no time, set a timer or the
alarm on your cell phone and find a relatively quiet place. You can
read the first page of the Quran you open or follow a sequence. The
choice is yours. The point is simply to connect with God through His
revelation in the month of the Quran.

10. Forgive everyone who has hurt you

Still got a festering wound from the fight with your friend last year?
Still upset about something your spouse said during a heated argument?
Or are you still bitter about the way your parents sometimes treated
you as a kid? Let go of the anger and pain this Ramadan and forgive
those who have hurt you. Forgiving someone is not only good for the
body, but it’s also great for the soul. And in Ramadan, ten days of
which are devoted to Allah’s forgiveness, shouldn’t we lesser beings
forgive too?

If you find it very difficult to forgive everyone, forgive at least
three people.

PS: knowing is not enough, doing is not superb but sharing with willingness is a great deal. Jazakum lahi kairan.
