The Virtues of the Noble Qurʾān
Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on Friday 22nd September 2017 at Al Kawthar Academy, Leicester (UK)
The recitation of the Qurʾān is emphasized for all, even for those who recite with difficulty. The effect of its recitation on both the reciter and those who listen is explained in this talk along with examples. Many of the Arabs, including those who were enemies of Islam, were affected by listening to the miraculous nature of the Qurʾān; to the extent that some went on to embrace Islam.
Throughout history many individuals have occupied themselves with the recitation of the Qurʾān and turn to it especially during times of need. Allah has placed blessing in time for one who recites it and the angels surround those who recite the Qurʾān.
The Qurʾān is not restricted to the wealthy, but the poor companions during the time of the Prophet ﷺ would often listen and practice the Qurʾān. This talk does much to help an individual recognise the miraculous nature of the Qurʾān and encourage them to start reading, even it may be a little.
