السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَ رَحْمَـــــةُ اللهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُــــهُ
May Allah’s Peace and Blessings be upon you,
Allah has sent down the Qur'an as a guidance for mankind. He mentions in Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 185:
شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدَىٰ وَالْفُرْقَانِ
“ The month of Ramadan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion....”
All of us muslims know that the Qur'an is a Book of Guidance .... But let's be honest, how many of us really take the trouble to read it on a daily basis, let alone try and understand it... Most of us, usually start off well, but eventually get lost in our busy lifestyle. Added to this, our casual attitude towards the Qur'an distances us from encashing on its multiple rewards! Allah mentions in Surah Surat Al-Anbiya 10
لَقَدْ أَنزَلْنَا إِلَيْكُمْ كِتَابًا فِيهِ ذِكْرُكُمْ ۖ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ
[Surat Al-Anbiya 10]
" Indeed, We have sent down for you (O mankind) a book (the Quran) in which there is Dhikrukum (your Reminder or an honor for you i.e. honor for the one who follows the teaching of the Quran and acts on its teachings). Will you not then understand? "
So, my dear viewers, it was with this noble intention of bringing the barakah of the Qur'an back into our lives, and with the guidance of Allah alone, we had launched several WhatsApp groups to cater to the English, Urdu and Hindi audience. A daily portion of one page as per Saudi Mus'haf alongwith well known translations and short tafseer audio-video clips is being uploaded. At this date, Alhamdulillah, by the grace of the Almighty Allah alone, our mere endeavour has become a widespread network.
And now, by Allah's help, we have taken this a step further by launching this website! Alhamdulillah!
Our project has aimed at delivering the following, bi'idhnillah:
- Short individual lessons of not more than 10 ayahs each, to maintain constancy and easy reading
- Translation of same, in three different languages, with an intention of adding more in future bi'idhnillah
- Summarised explanation/Brief Tafsir videos of various scholars for same.
The individual lessons, will give the reader, the flexilibity to finish the Qur'an as per his or her own convenience. They have the choice to take up one lesson or more. So, the slow and steady kind could take up 2 lessons per day which should not take more than 7 to 10 minutes, and thereby complete the Qur'an with understanding in 10 months, in sha Allah! As for the go-getters, who are eager to take on more, say as many as 5 lessons per day, maybe after each salah, could happily complete the Qur'an with understanding in 2 months! Now, isn't that a super easy way of accomplishing what seemed like an impossible task!!! I'm sure you all will agree.
We sincerely hope and pray that through this humble endeavour of ours, we will be able to achieve our objective of bringing home the riqz of daily Qur'an with understanding to all our users worldwide, and sufficient is Allah as our Helper and Witness.
We ask Allah, Ash-Shakoor, to accept our efforts to please Him by glorifying His Word.. the Qur'an.. We ask Allah, Al-Wahhab to bestow showers of His blessings on everyone involved in this project, at both ends, and to enable us all to benefit from its fruits
May Allah make us all from amongst the People of the Qur'an.. those who are closest to Him.
