What Quran Learning can bring to humans

There comes a time in every person’s life when they find themselves inclined greatly to think what they are here for in this world, the purpose of their life, who created them, and most importantly, who created all of this (the whole universe).

This state of mind, when not addressed appropriately by feeding appropriate answers to it, can lead a person to get strayed; not only becoming oblivious to everything going around him, but also from his own being.

To stay away from such a situation, the best way is to heed to what creator of the whole universe, i.e. The Mighty Allah tells you to, and that is nothing other than teachings of Quran and Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Online Quran Learning is the best way to go for, if you want to achieve this purpose.

Learn Quran To Observe Its Positive Impacts On Humans

You will better understand this by going through the content of Qur’an as explained in this chapter of the Holy Book:

In the Name of God, the Lord of Grace, the Ever Merciful We have always sent messages (of guidance) as a mercy from your Lord. He alone is the One who hears all and knows all, the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, if only you were firm believers. There is no deity other than Him; He gives life and deals death. He is your Lord and the Lord of your earliest ancestors. Yet they remain in doubt, playing about. (Smoke; Al-Dukhan; 44: 5-10)

This shall serve a motivation and inspiration enough to compel every single person in this world towards Quran Learning, because this is just one instance of Holy Qur’an, with whole of it filled by specimens like these. That is why learning of Quran is so important as per Islamic traditions.

Promises Of Countless Rewards For Quran Recitation

All praises be to The Mightiest, The One who created the whole universe to endow His endless blessings onto humanity. Life, in fact, is the biggest gift of all in itself, but The Most Beneficial and The Most Merciful Allah not only bestowed us life; He also bestowed us with the guidance we need.

This guidance from Allah (SWT) is not confined to any particular period or for particular group of people; rather, it is an omnipresent guidance to humans from all ages and times, as mentioned in the following verse:

Al-Baqara (2:213) Mankind was one single nation, and Allah sent Messengers with glad tidings and warnings; and with them He sent the Book in truth, to judge between People in matters wherein they differed; but the People of the Book, after the clear Signs came to them did not differ among themselves, except through selfish contumacy. Allah by His Grace guided the believers to the Truth concerning that wherein they differed. For Allah guides whom He will to a path that is straight.

The source of all this information is nothing other than the Holy Quran, the last of Scriptures Allah Almighty selects for guiding humanity till eternity. That is why, Allah declares Quran recitation an act of great honor promising countless rewards. This hadith, for example, informs us about one such reward promised by Allah Almighty:

“The one who recites the Quran beautifully, smoothly, and precisely, he will be in the company of the noble and obedient angels.” (Bukhaari and Muslim)Link

Learn Quran To Find The Ultimate Truth

Qur’an is definitely the most read book in the whole world and perhaps the most talked about as well, especially since the unfortunate event of 9/11. One might even say that there are two types of people you would mostly come across; the ones who read Qur’an and the ones who talk about it.

This might seem a bit exaggerated to you, but it is a fact. People living in western societies, particularly in the United States of America are in the best position to testify this. This is also a fact that the number of people turning to Islam post 9/11 has increased phenomenally.

One of the reasons behind this is the fact that all the hype that western media, under the governance of ill intentioned people who want to defame Islam at any cost, when created this much hype about Muslims and Quran, people felt like learning about Islam and Qur’an themselves.

Since Quran is nothing but true word of Allah Almighty, those who vow to learn quran with true intentions of finding the truth, cannot simply hold themselves from embracing truth. Look what Allah Almighty tells us about Qur’an in the following verse:

Yunus [10:57]. O mankind! There has come to you a good advice from your Lord (i.e. the Qur’an, enjoining all that is good and forbidding all that is evil), and a healing for that (disease of ignorance, doubt, hypocrisy and differences,) Which is in your breasts, – a guidance and a mercy (explaining lawful and unlawful things) for the believers.

Therefore, anyone who wants to segregate truth from fiction and right from wrong, should learn Quran to get the best of guidance anyone can ever get.
