As Muslims, when we speak – or write or engage in any other act or form of communication – we must do so not to impress or feel good, but to educate and to serve and to help.
And to discover and share the truth.
Allah’s book, the Qur’an, is a marvel and a miracle in every way. But Allah made it easy – and readily accessible. And he said so: Wa Laqwad Yassarnal Qur’ana Lidh Dhikr.
And he said this not once or twice but repeatedly: four times in one Surah alone – Surah Al-Qwamar, Surah 54.
That means the Qur’an is easy no matter how you look at it: easy to read; easy to learn; easy to remember; easy to memorize; easy to recite.
And also, the Qur’an is, at the same time, easy to understand and easy to practice and implement: in one’s personal life as well as in our societies and communities.
And in the entire world.
And those who complain that the Qur’an is anything other than “easy” may, sadly, be those who have been denied – or delayed – access to the Qur’an in one form or another, for one reason or another.
