Some Words From Shaikh Muqbil on Seeking Knowledge

Bismillaah…

sh-muqbil

” Oh my children, I swear by Allah if knowledge could be poured into a glass, I would pour it for you, but it is not obtained except by hard work, exhaustion and scraping of knees.”

[Shaikh Muqbil Rahimahullaah]

Assalaamu alaikum,

Everytime I read this I’m captured by its beauty and simplicity.  It was said by the great scholar  Shaikh Muqbil from Yemen (Rahimahullaah).  It’s enough of a reminder to all seekers of knowledge to remain steadfast upon their path and to be patient and persevere.  It also displays the great love he had for his children and the gentle way in which he spoke to them.  (I assume that he is speaking to his own children but he may well be addressing his students as he was a senior shaykh and Allaah knows best)

Shaikh Al-Albaani Advice about Qur’aan

Bismillaah…

Assalaamu alaikum,

I read this today and would like to share it with you all.  It is some advice given by the great Scholar Shaykh Al-Albani (Raheemahullaah) about the Qur’aan.

The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said:

 

“The Best of you are those who learn the Quran and teach it”

 

The Scholar Al-Albaani (may Allah have mercy upon him) said  in his notes under this hadeeth in Silsilah as-Saheehah 1173:

 

And in this Hadeeth is: a direction into learning The Qur’aan, and that the best knowledge that a person can learn is learning the Qur’aan.

 

So how wishful it is that the students of knowledge  would realize that.  Because in it, is great benefit.

 

And fom the calamities that have hit our era is that you find many of the callers or the beginners amongst the students of knowledge going into giving fatwa’s (Islamic verdicts) and answering questions of people; while he hasn’t even made good his recitation of Suratul Faatiha from its proper recitation…’

Up to where he said..

‘..so advice to myself and then to them is that; the best of what a student of knowledge begins on is memorising The Quran’

Ways to Memorise: Memorisation Between Two

Bismillaah…

Assalaamu alaikum,

I have a lovely book called “Kayfa tahfadh al-Qur’aan al-Kareem (how to memorise the Noble Qur’aan)” by Dr Yahya Ibn Abdur-Razaq Al-Gawthaany.  Maasha Allaah its a really lovely book and it combines between the main principles of memorisation and different methods in which it can be done.  My husband and  I will try our best to give basic/general translations of some of these methods to share with you in-shaa Allaah.

The first we have chosen is:

What a surprise!!!

Bismillaah…..

Assalaamu alaikum,

today was the official start after Eid.  Everyone had  recovered (somewhat) from all the late nights of Ramadhan and early morning and parties of Eid and was ready to work again.  I was a little worried that they would have forgotten some ayaat over the holiday period so as tired as I still was, we couldn’t delay any longer.

I sat with the children to read Al-Hashr.  I asked my daughter to close her eyes and read as much as she could so I would know where to start hifdh from.  Then she read…..and read….  and read…until maasha Allaah to my surprise she got to the end.  We all cheered and made dua for her with hugs and kisses all round.  Her brother asked her “how did you know the end like that?” and she replied “I don’t know, I just knew it”.  I was really happy as it seemed that playing the tapes of the surahs  in their room had worked alhamdulillaah.

A Beautiful Documentary: Qur’aan By Heart

Bismillaah…

Assalaamu alaikum,

Heres a lovely documentary, “Qur’an by Heart” about children from around the world taking part in the annual Cairo International Holy Qur’an Competition.  Its for children that have memorised the entire Qur’aan.  They’re sat in front of a special computer that selects a random portion which they then must recite (with correct tajweed) before a group of scholars from Al-Azhar and an audience.

It  follows three Muslim youths — Nabiollah from Tajikistan, Rifdha from the Maldives, and Djamil from Senegal — as they enter into an annual Koran-reciting competition in Cairo, Egypt. The competition attracts hundreds of Muslims from all over the world, many of whom don’t speak Arabic, but are able to recite the entire 600-page Koran — and beautifully.

Why we should read the Qur’aan with tajweed? from www.abouttajweed.com

Bismillaah…

Assalaamu alaikum,

I wanted to share an article I have about the importance of reading the Qur’aan with Tajweed.   This is a science that is often overlooked in modern times.  We are a nation that strive to follow the Qur’aan and Sunnah (with the understanding of the Salaf)  in our lives.  We try hard to learn and find out what the Prophet Muhammad (sallahu alaihi wa sallaam) did in his life so that we can imitate him.  We do this with the hope of  gaining more good reward from Allaah as we know his example is the best to follow.   This should be the same for the Qur’aan as the study of tajweed helps us to know how our beloved Prophet (Sallaahu alaihi wa sallaam) recited the Qur’aan.

The article was originally taken from the excellent tajweed website   About Tajweed  http://www.abouttajweed.com/index.php  Maasha Allaah May Allaah bless them and their work,  it’s a really good reference and you can even write to them and ask questions that do get answered.

Heres the article:

An Inspiring Interview with Ustaathah Kareema Czerepinski
