What if you went to the nearest auto showroom and got the latest model of Mercedes? Without money, without much hardship, without theft, can anyone refuse this offer?
So if you learn a verse from the Quran will be better for you than this car, and two verses are better for you than two cars, and so on. That is what our prophet Muhammad peace and blessing be upon him said in the hadith,
‘Uqba b. ‘Āmir said:
When we were in the Suffa (A kind of verandah at the mosque in Medina where certain poor people lived) God’s messenger came out and asked, “Which of you would like to go out every morning to Buthān or al-‘Aqīq (Two wādis not far from Medina where camels were sold) and bring two large-humped she-camels without being guilty of sin or severing ties of relationship?” We replied, “Messenger of God, we would all like that.” He said, “Does not one of you go out in the morning to the mosque and teach or recite two verses of God’s Book? That is better for him than two she-camels, and three verses are better for him than three she-camels, and four verses are better for him than four she-camels, and so on than their numbers in camels.”
And you can see how it’s easy now to learn Quran, because the circles of learning the Quran online have spread widely, and it has become very easy to choose a suitable time to learn the Quran remotely through online education centers. In the past, a man used to go to great lengths to learn one verse from the Book of Allah, so what is our argument now while we can learn all the books of Allah online while we are in our homes?
Learn a verse from the Quran and get the following benefits:
- Learning Quran is the best thing which a person perishes his life in, and by this, he will be among the winners and be among whom the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: “The best of you is he who learns the Quran and teaches it.” And this means that the best of people is the one who learns the Quran in memorization, recitation, and contemplation, and teaches it to others in memorization, recitation and contemplation. Do not you want to be one of the best people?
- The Quran is the best talking, so it is known that the honor of knowledge is the honor of the known, and what is known here are the words of the King of kings (Allah). It is the best hadith as Allah said ˹Allah has sent down the best message—a Book of perfect consistency and repeated lessons—which causes the skin ˹and hearts˺ of those who fear their Lord to tremble, then their skin and hearts soften at the mention of ˹the mercy of˺ Allah. That is the guidance of Allah, through which He guides whoever He wills. But whoever Allah leaves to stray will be left with no guide. The Quran is the best remembrance ever.
- The Quran is the way of life of the believer. Imagine a person is lost in a big desert on a dark night, and he found a map out of this wandering, could you imagine he will leave it? Or will he not read it? Will, he read it without understanding? Will, he read it and not follow what is in it? This is impossible! The same applies to the Quran and more because it takes us out of the wandering in the world and the darkness of the Hereafter.
- Learning the Quran online has become an argument for us, and what makes it an argument for us is that the person takes the initiative to join one of the online seminars. And the person who reads Quraan today while he stutters in it in the online sessions, he will read it tomorrow while he is the honorable and obedient scribes (angels), so hurry up to learn the words of Allah and expect a paradise as wide as the heavens and the earth, in which no eye saw, no ear heard, and no danger to a human heart.
