Qur’an is the most valuable gift the world has been given by God Almighty.
Qur’an certainly is the most valuable possession Muslims have.
And the Hadith Sharif makes it clear that there is no better activity than learning and teaching the Qur’an.
And yet the Qur’an is not an excuse for running away and hiding from real life and its challenges and problems.
And from Working for Allah.
Look at the life of Sayyidina Muhammad, Sallallahu Alahi wa Sallam.
His life was all action. Nonstop action.
And yet, was there then or ever, or is there now, anyone who read the Qur’an more?
Or taught the Qur’an more?
So, those who are turning to the Qur’an and coming forward to read it, and it is a great blessing that they are doing so, they should not forget that reading the Qur’an is not a substitute for doing their daily and hourly duty of taking the Qur’an to every home and heart that needs it — and which one does not?
And that is how Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alahi wa Sallam, spent his entire life:
Working all the time, and in every conceivable way, to take the Qur’an to every home and heart everywhere.
His workstation was the entire universe. Ask yourself what is yours.
Do not use Allah’s book to hide from working nonstop to bring everyone else in Allah’s world to Allah’s book that Allah, out of his Rahmat and Mercy and Grace, has now placed in your hands.
Try and work to be worthy of that book.
And of that trust.
Read the Qur’an and you will know!
