Know your Quran, know your Namaz

1 Jan

So tell me, when you offer your prayers, do you know what your saying, as in word by word? And same with the Holy Quran, when you read Quran, do you know what you’re reading? what Quran demands of you? Do you read the Arabic text or it’s translation?

Well as far as the first question about the prayer is concerned firstly i had literary “NO” idea what i was saying, and that was not many years ago. Last year i made a conscious effort to understand what i was reciting. And same is the case with Quran, not many years ago i only and only used to read the Arabic portion, missing the complete picture of what Quran demanded of me, but thanks to a loyal friend who made me realize the right way to read Quran, i-e understand it.
Now this year all we need to do is:

Learn Arabic.

Don’t take it lightly. What’s the point of doing your namaz and knowing not what you just said or did? Is this what Allah demands of you, that you must stand in front of him and utter some verses you know not, just cram ’em and you’ll end up in heaven. It’s much more complicated than that pal.

So, ask yourself questions like these and try to get answers. You will come to the same conclusion, insha Allah.

Happy thinking!
And a Happy New Year 2008.

    the real essence of our prayers is to understand what we are reciting in Arabic,
    the same goes for Holy Quran.

    from the day i learned to say my prayers and read Holy Quran, father taught us to understand it with the Urdu translation.
    my Dad brought many excellent books on prayers & performing ablutions.
    the thing is we have to take out time to go through them & understand them.

    may Allah help us in understanding & follow the Holy Quran. amin!

    Sum-ameeeen!

    You know what on our way to our maternal Grand parents, my dad used to teach us some verses of Surah-e-yaseen. And trust me i remember them even now. After that i didn’t any more effort to learn more of it, but what i’m trying to say is that if parents get to teach heir kids about Quran and islam, the condition of youth would be much much better, insha Allah!

    • Who are the Muslims?

    One billion people from a vast range of races, nationalities and cultures across the globe – from the southern Philippines to Nigeria – are united by their common Islamic faith. About 18% live in the Arab world; the world’s largest Muslim community is in Indonesia; substantial parts of Asia and most of Africa are Muslim, while significant minorities are to be found in the Soviet Union, China, North and South America, and Europe.

    • What do Muslims believe?

    Muslims believe in One, Unique, Incomparable God; in the Angels created by Him; in the prophets through whom His revelations were brought to mankind; in the Day of Judgement and individual accountability for actions; in God’s complete authority over human destiny and in life after death. Muslims believe in a chain of prophets starting with Adam and including Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Job, Moses, Aaron, David, Solomon, Elias, Jonah, John the Baptist, and Jesus, peace be upon them. But God’s final message to man, a reconfirmation of the eternal message and a summing-up of all that has gone before was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad through Gabriel.

    • How does someone become a Muslim?

    Simply by saying ‘there is no god apart from God, and Muhammad is the Messenger of God.’ By this declaration the believer announces his or her faith in all God’s messengers, and the scriptures they brought.

    • What does ‘Islam’ mean?

    The Arabic word ‘Islam’ simply means ‘submission’, and derives from a word meaning ‘peace’. In a religious context it means complete submission to the will of God. ‘Mohammedanism’ is thus a misnomer because it suggests that Muslims worship Muhammad rather than God. ‘Allah’ is the Arabic name for God, which is used by Arab Muslims and Christians alike.

    • Why does Islam often seem strange?

    Islam may seem exotic or even extreme in the modern world. Perhaps this is because religion does not dominate everyday life in the West today, whereas Muslims have religion always uppermost in their minds, and make no division between secular and sacred. They believe that the Divine Law, the Shari’a, should be taken very seriously, which is why issues related to religion are still so important.

    i really want to know why should we recite the line,”VA ASHADHUNA MUHAMMADAN RASULULAH” while offering SALLAT.
    Even muhammad offered SALLAT to ALLAH,did he recite his own name in SALAAT?
