DR. PASHA’S QUR’AN SCALE

Connecting with the Qur’an:
A Daily Scale of Personal Progress

 

Every day, every
Muslim must ask himself or herself:

(1)

When did I last see the Qur’an?

(2)

When did I last touch the Qur’an?

(3)

When did I last hold the Qur’an in my hand?

(4)

When did I last open the Qur’an?

(5)

When did I last turn the pages of the Qur’an?

(6)

When did I last read any part of the Qur’an?

(7)

When did I last attempt to learn to read the Qur’an correctly?

(8)

When did I last attempt to memorize any part of the Qur’an?

(9)

When did I last attempt to learn the meaning of any of the
Aayats of the Qur’an?

(10)

When did I last reflect on the deeper connotations of any of
the Aayats of Qur’an?

(11)

When did I last attempt to put some of the Qur’an
into practice?

(12)

When did I last ponder ways of putting all of the Qur’an
into practice?

(13)

When did I last wonder how Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu
Alaihi wa Sallam
, changed the world, using the Qur’an?

(14)

When did I last wonder how he did it within the impossibly
short span of 23 years or less?

(15)

When did I last attempt to teach someone the Qur’an?

(16)

When did I last invite someone to use this scale for
personally connecting with the Qur’an?

 

What to Do Next

  1. Regardless of where you place on the scale, make a beginning now.

  2. Starting from where you place on the scale, move up one level.

  3. Continue your progress on the scale and ask Allah for help.

  4. Invite someone else to use the scale the way you did.
