Why Should We Learn The Quran?

Why Should We Learn The Quran? We learn the Quran to study the Quran for guidance, deepen faith, and receive abundant blessings. Gain clarity, tranquility, and honor through its teachings.

As we all know, Quran is our guiding map in the maze of life, then how can we save ourselves from getting lost and astray, if we don’t actually learn how to read ‘this Divine map’ correctly?! Qur’an keeps our minds clear, our hearts faithful, and our souls right guided; Allah says:

[And We have not revealed to you the Book, (O Muḥammad), except for you to make clear to them that wherein they have differed and as guidance and mercy for a people who believe.] [An-Nahl: 64].

Why Is It Important to Learn and Teach the Quran?

Learning and teaching the Quran is crucial for understanding Allah’s guidance, strengthening belief, and gaining true knowledge. It’s obligatory for every Muslim, with great rewards, increasing faith, and enhancing Arabic language skills through its study.

1. Divine Message and Guidance

The Qur’an is Allah’s message to humanity, meant to be understood and followed. Allah says: 

“[(This is) a blessed Book which We have revealed to you, [O Muḥammad], that they might reflect upon its ayahs and that those of understanding would be reminded.]” [Sad: 29]. 

Learning its teachings is crucial for following its guidance in life.

2. Strengthening Belief

Understanding the Qur’an deepens one’s faith, as it is an essential part of a Muslim’s belief. Allah says: 

“[The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in Allāh and His angels and His books and His messengers…]” [Al-Baqarah: 285]. 

Learning the Qur’an reinforces belief in these fundamental aspects of faith.

3. Gaining True Knowledge

Learning the Qur’an enriches both the mind and heart with true knowledge, providing clear insight and freeing one from misconceptions and falsehoods. 

This combination of intellectual clarity and heartfelt faith fortifies one’s understanding and practice of Islam, making belief firm and deeply rooted.

4. Learning A Part of the Quran is a Fard “obligatory”

Learning Qur’an is the most important, and honorable knowledge to seek, undoubtedly, and it is a fardh (obligatory) on every adult, sane Muslim, whereas teaching it is fardh Kifayah (sufficiency duty): 

[And it is not for the believers to go forth [to battle] all at once. For there should separate from every division of them a group (remaining) to obtain understanding in the religion and warn (i.e., advise) their people when they return to them that they might be cautious.] [At-Tawba: 22]. 

5. Understanding Allah’s Names and Attributes

The best way to learn about Allah and His names and attributes is by reading the Quran. Every page of the Quran contains mentions of Allah’s names or attributes, introducing us to our Creator and what He has named and described Himself as.

6. Understanding Islamic Rulings

Allah revealed the Quran as a reference for understanding Islamic rulings, including aspects of buying, selling, marriage, worship, ethics, and interactions. The Quran explains the five categories of rulings: obligatory, recommended, disliked, forbidden, and permissible.

7. Great Rewards

Those who read and learn the Quran receive great rewards. Every letter read earns ten good deeds, and learning and teaching the Quran makes a person among the best, as the Prophet ﷺ said: “The best of you are those who learn the Quran and teach it.”

8. Increasing and Strengthening Your Faith

Learning and reciting the Quran increases faith, as Allah says: “When His verses are recited to them, it increases them in faith.” Reciting the Quran instills a sense of religious duty, strengthens self-accountability, and encourages adherence to ethical and moral conduct.

Enhancing Arabic Language Skills

Allah revealed the Quran in Arabic, motivating Muslims to master the language for maximum benefit. Reading the Quran refines pronunciation, aids in understanding linguistic rules, and requires knowledge of Arabic poetry and dialects to fully grasp its meanings.

The Rewards and Benefits of Learning Quran:

Studying the Quran strengthens belief, brings blessings, and offers guidance. Recitation earns multiple rewards, serves as an intercessor, and reminds of life’s purpose, leading to honor and distinction among Muslims.

1. Strengthening Belief and Obedience: 

Firming your belief of Allah, receiving His message to you- Qur’an- with a sincere heart and attentive mind, and acting accordingly, obeying Him by following His commands, and refraining from the prohibitions.

2. Blessings in this World and Hereafter: 

Getting blessed in this world, and the hereafter, by obeying Allah Almighty, and His Messenger:

[And whoever obeys Allāh and the Messenger – those will be with the ones upon whom Allāh has bestowed favor of the prophets, the steadfast affirmers of truth, the martyrs and the righteous. And excellent are those as companions.] [An-Nisaa: 69].

3. Clear Vision and Guidance: 

Having a clear vision, and true standard and guide, understanding the religion right:

[[And We have not revealed to you the Book, (O Muḥammad), except for you to make clear to them that wherein they have differed and as guidance and mercy for a people who believe.] [An-Nahl: 64].

4. Surrounded by Angels and Mercy

Getting surrounded by angels, and gaining Allah’s pleasure and mercy; The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Any group of people that assemble in one of the Houses of Allah to recite the Book of Allah, learning and teaching it, tranquility will descend upon them, mercy will engulf them, angels will surround them and Allah will make mention of them to those (the angels) in His proximity.” (Sahih- Muslim).

5. Tranquility and Peace:

Gaining tranquility and peace, away from confusion and distress; Allah says:

[We have not sent down to you the Qur’ān that you be distressed] [Taha: 2]

7. Honorable Rank in Paradise:

Reaching an honorable rank in Paradise; the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

“One who was devoted to (learn) the Qur’an will be told to recite, ascend and recite carefully as he recited carefully when he was in the world, for he will reach his abode when he comes to the last ayah he recites.” (Hasan- Sahih).

8. Quran as Intercessor: 

Having Qur’an as intercessor for you in the Day of Judgment:  the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Recite the Qur’an, for it will come as an intercessor for its reciters on the Day of Resurrection.” (Muslim) 

9. Reminder of Life’s Purpose: 

Keeping reminded and heedful of your purpose in life, and what really matters, and what is not;

[(This is) a Book revealed to you, [O Muḥammad] – so let there not be in your breast distress therefrom – that you may warn thereby and as a reminder to the believers.] [Ghafir: 2]

10. Among the Best: 

Being among the best of the Muslims; the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “The best among you is he who learns and teaches the Qur’ān.” (Bukhari); that is directly related to the great status of Qur’an, itself, Allah’s Word: 

[But this is an honored Qur’ān] [Al-Buruj: 21]. [And indeed it is, in the Mother of the Book with Us, exalted and full of wisdom.] [Az-Zukhruf: 4].

11. Honor and Status: Elevating Oneself Through Quranic Studies

Gaining the honor of learning, and teaching the Holy Qur’an: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Verily, Allah elevates some people with this Qur’an and abases others.” (Muslim)

12. Multiple Rewards: 

Getting multiple rewards; The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Whoever recites a letter from the Book of Allah, he will be credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a ten-fold reward. I do not say that Alif-Lam-Mim is one letter, but Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter and Mim is a letter.” (At-Tirmidhi).
