Guide to Al-Quran

In his book "Way to The Quran", Khuram Murrad explained that the Quran is the word of the Ever-living God; it has been sent down to guide man for all the times to come. No book can be like it. As you come to the Quran, Allah speaks to you. To read the Qu'ran is to hear Him, even to converse with Him, and to walk in His ways. It is the encounter of life with the Life-giver. Verily, the most important guidelines and convictions that need to be obeyed by the true Muslim:

"First,our lives will remain meaningless and ruined unless they are guided by the Qu'ran, the word of God.

Second, the Qu'ran, being the eternal guidance given by the Ever-living God, is relevant for us ,today; as it was fourteen centuries ago and will remain so forever.

Third, we almost have a right in some sense and measure to receive its blessings today as its first believers did ; provided, of course that we come to it and move in it in manner that may entitle us to share its rich harvest.

Fourth, every Muslim has a duty to devote himself to reading, understanding and memorizing the Qu'ran.

Fifth, one must abandon oneself totally in thought and deed, to whatever the Qu'ran has to offer. Any pride, arrogance,sense of self-sufficiency, reservation, or ingenuity that can mistakely be read into it, is fatal to its understanding and would shut the door to its blessings.

Sixth, the path of Qu'ran is the path of self-surrender, of practising what it tell you,even if one learn only one Ayah. one Ayah learnt and acted upon is better than a thousand which are explained beautifully but which do not impart any beauty to the reader's life. obedience, after all is the real key to understanding."

Let's begin the new journey, for life is only worth when Al-Quran is whole part of us. !!!!
