How to Iqro or read Al Qur’an? Frequently we find people racing to finish Quran in the Month of Ramadan, whether after Ramadan still read Al Qur’an? Eventhough to recite Qur’an our hearts become calm, with frequently read Al-Quran and its meaning we know more the meaning contained in each word of Allah.
بألا بذكرالله تطمئن القلو
With remembrance of Allah hearts be calm.
Through His words that is in the Qur’an we feel close to the Creator, more calm to face challenges as well as tests of life and our hearts are stronger to always remain unchanged (istiqomah) in the way of Allah.
إِنَّ هَذَا الْقُرْآنَ يِهْدِي لِلَّتِي هِيَ أَقْوَمُ وَيُبَشِّرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
الَّذِينَ يَعْمَلُونَ الصَّالِحَاتِ أَنَّ لَهُمْ أَجْرًا كَبِيرًا

By reading Al-Qur’an so that we get many rewards not just reading it but the reward we get is as many as number of letters we read.
Rasulullah pbuh said, “People who are proficient in Al-Qur’an together with noble ambassadors and sacred. And anyone who reads Al-Qur’an haltingly and has difficulty so two rewards for him.”(Narrated by Muslim and Ahmad)
Word of the Prophet pbuh, “People who read a letter from the Book of Allah for him one kindness and each goodness equivalent to as much as ten times. I do not say the letter Alif Lam Mim one letter but rather, Lam one letter and Mim is one letter. “(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi)
Word of the Messenger of Allah, “It is said to the Al-Qur’an carrier: read and catch and as thou hast tartil or to recite the Qur’an with measured recitation in the world. Really your position is at the end of the paragraph that you read. “(Narrated by Ahmad)
Ramadan is very soon, a very beautiful time to further enhance our worship, one of which is to improve our practice to recite Al-Qur’an, not mandatory to finish Al-Quran but rather to improve our practice to recite Al-Qur’an in the Month of Ramadan.
Ramadan is indeed a glorious month, no matter how small the kindness is, it is very valuable, not only reward of each letter that flows when we recite Al-Qur’an but we also have to create good speech, attitudes, and behaviour.
However, when we are given the opportunity of age and time to read Al-Quran, we try to keep on reading Al-Quran not only in the Month of Ramadan, we are constantly trying to read and practice all listed in each His word beyond the Month of Ramadan.
