How to Implement the Quran

The Holy book of the Quran is written in the Arabic language. Muslims all over the world are not familiar with this language. But even then they love to recite and memorize the book of the Holy Quran. Reciting Holy Quran and implementing the Quran in daily life are two different things.

To deal with the different challenges of life in a gentle and pious way, we need to implement the Quran in our daily life. For this purpose, we need to understand the Quran. Certainly, Quran gives immense comfort and spirit to its readers because it is the only book free from any kind of doubts.

By understanding the Holy Quran, we enable ourselves to know about the eternal realities and facts of the universe and Allah Almighty Himself. The facts revealed in Quran are beyond our imagination. Apart from the religious part, Quran is a complete collection of facts and rulings along with basic principles of moral and social behavior. Since the revelation of the Holy Quran, Muslims get all the solutions for any kind of problem from this Holy Book.

It is also narrated that from one ayah of the Quran, Muslims used to get more than one solution or an Islamic Law. In terms of its words and meaning, no doubt Quran is a great miracle of Allah Almighty. We just need to open and read the holy verses of the Quran and we will feel ourselves lighten up from the burden of our difficulty.

Allah SWT made us easier to understand the Quran by giving examples and moral stories in it. When we start implementing Quran in our daily life, it becomes our constant companion. It realizes to us why were we born? What does Allah want from me? What is our identification? What are our social, religious, and personal responsibilities? And moreover, by which things we can get the blessings of Allah SWT and make Him pleased.

Allah says in Quran,

“And to recite the Quran, so whosoever receives guidance, receives it for the good of his own self, and whosoever goes astray, say (to him): “I am only one of the warner’’. 27:92

In this ayah of the Holy Quran, Allah SWT has made it clear that Quran is His great blessing to show the right path to mankind. But if we make excuses to not follow the rules and facts of the Quran, we will be in great darkness and that will only be our personal loss.

The final words of Allah SWT in the Quran are considered as a literal speech of Allah Almighty provided to the Last Prophet Muhammad SAWW. Every chapter and every ayah of the Quran is filled with complete guidance for mankind.

Why Understanding the Quran Important?

It is a little bit hard for Non-Arabs to understand the Quran as they are not familiar with the Arabic language. That is why Quran has been translated into many languages to help not only Muslims all over the world, but rather teach humanity all over the world. If we explore Quran deeply, we see that Quran is a complete code of life. So in every matter, we need the guidance from Quran. We need not only to recite the Holy Quran but also to understand the Quran.

For one who seeks closeness to Allah, Quran becomes a bridge between him and Allah SWT. It brings peace, guidance, and mercy to its readers. The thing is we need to understand the Quran.

To understand the Holy Quran we consider the most reliable and effective source to learn the Arabic Language first. While one is doing struggle to understand the Quran, Shiyateen or Iblis are trying their utmost effort to misinterpret the message of Allah.

For example, Allah says in Quran, Surah Nisa,

“Do not come near Salah (prayer)’’

Suran Nisa: 43

Now, Iblis can make its interpretation that Salah is prohibited in Islam. But the fact is this ayah was revealed in this way,

“O you who have believed, do not approach prayer while you are intoxicated until you know what you are saying or in a state of janabah, except those passing through [a place of prayer], until you have washed [your whole body]. And if you are ill or on a journey or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself or you have contacted women and find no water, then seek clean earth and wipe over your faces and your hands [with it]. Indeed, Allah is ever pardoning and forgiving’’

Surah Nisa: 43

In this way, critics come for the baseless debate over Islam. We are directed to not get Quranic knowledge partially. Rather we should concentrate on every surah and every ayah with its meaning, proper explanation, and most of all, the reason for which this portion of the Quran was revealed.

When we will get clear concepts about all these things, we will be able to say that Quran is a glorious book for guidance from Allah SWT to His creatures.
