How to Understand Quraan

Quraan is the Book of Guidance

Quraan is full of Wisdom (Al_Quraan_036.002)

Quraan is a light and to see a light, you don’t need any other light

But to understand Hadeeth you really need Quraan

And we have indeed made the Quraan easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (Al_Quraan_054.017)

(Since Allah has said that Quraan is really easy to understand and remember, we must have to believe it)

The Demands of Quraan:

The Quraan makes five demands of every Muslim. Put in a simple language, these demands are as follows:

A Muslim is required:

1>               to believe in the Quraan;

2>               to read it;

3>               to understand it;

4>               to act upon its teachings; and

5>               to convey its message and teachings to others.

Tips to Understand Quraan:

First: You need to keep all your previous understanding a side.


Second: Your Believe should be like Quraan is word of Allah, it is the only Authentic Book in the world and it is not comparable to any. In Quraan you will find Questions and Answers to many things. It is Great like Sky.


Third: Hadith is written 200 years after Rasool Allah (SAW) and it may contain Errors. It is like Earth.


Last: Rest of the thoughts are buried in the Earth.


In Simple Words:::::>>>>>

             Number 1 is Quraan

             Number 2 is Hadith

             Number 3 is The Rest


Generally I found peoples believe the other way. Which is wrong:::>>>

              Number 1 is Imaam of the Masjid (Maulaana, Mufti)

              Number 2 is Hadith

              Number 3 is Quraan


We need to find where we went wrong and we need to correct ourselves.

In the beginning of Surat Al_Baqara, Allah said::::>>>

Quraan is Book of Guidance:

This is the Scripture whereof there is no doubt, a guidance unto those who ward off (evil). [Al_Quraan_002.002]

(To get Guidance you must have to read it with understanding)

Who can get Guidance from it:

Who believe in the unseen, and establish worship, and spend of that We have bestowed upon them; [Al_Quraan_002.003]

And who believe in that which is revealed unto thee (Muhammad) and that which was revealed before thee, and are certain of the Hereafter. [Al_Quraan_002.004]

These depend on guidance from their Lord. These are the successful. [Al_Quraan_002.005]

Reciting Quraan in a Group: One person should read and rest must listen to him:

When the Quraan is read, listen to it with attention, and hold your peace: that ye may receive mercy (otherwise may be not). [Al_Quraan_007.204]

(To get real Mercy of Allah, you must have to listen carefully when the Quraan is read in a Group otherwise you may not get the real MERCY from Allah. Reciting Quraan should never be like every body is reading independently and no body are listening to one person, like in Quraan Khanee.)
