A marvelous book

October 8, 2006

ancient quranic text with kufic scriptIt never ceases to amaze me. When reading the Qur’an, especially during Ramadan, it is always like reading it again for the first time. Of course, in years past, I always read translations. To now read the Arabic just adds to the multidimensional depth of what I receive from Allah’s book.

It is both prose and poetry, simple and complex, relaxing yet invigorating, spiritually deep and yet practically applicable, historical and foretelling, small enough to fit between two covers and yet boundless in its knowledge.

It is reported that the Messenger of Allah (prayers and peace be upon him) said, “The best of you is he who learns the Qur’an and then teaches it.”
