Listening to the Qur'an: Insights, Commands, and Guidance for Our Life
Reflections on a selection of Quranic ayahs as to how they relate to our life today.
our devotion to the Words of Allah is unsurpassed, as shown yearly by
the taraweeh prayers alone, our devotion to the Message of Allah
requires more. We need to understand and reflect on the wisdom and
commands contained in the Divine Words so that we are truly listening to
them and not just hearing them. That is the basic idea behind this
book. A few ayahs were selected from every night's recitation to reflect
on their message as it relates to our life and our challenges today. As
a result here are about 150 ayahs that deal with most of the important
issues we face.
Listening to the Quran means actively seeking guidance for our
individual and collective life. It means developing a personal
relationship with the Quran, and through that with Allah Most High. It
means reflecting on the Quranic message and on our own situation. Where
do we stand? Where should we be going? How does the Word of Allah
relate to our world? These reflections may stimulate our thinking, and
our action. Not only during Ramadan but all year long.
Khalid Baig has brilliantly put together such a book that
motivates one to dive even deeper in search of the hidden treasures that
will lead us to our ultimate goals: happiness and success, in this life
and the Hereafter. This book amazingly aids in achieving this desired
I truly enjoyed reading these reflections
during Ramadan. The selection of ayahs and relevant topics makes it even
more appealing and beneficial.
