Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُه

May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be with you

Beloved Qur'an

Is it the style?

Is it the eloquence?

Is it the rhythm?

 Is it the cadences?

Is it the perfection?

Is it the healing effect? 

Is it the guidance?

Is it the power to activate the tear glands? Or

Is it simply the emphatic mention of right and wrong?

Oh! How can I express how fortunate we are as Muslims?

In our midst is the Qur’an?

With each letter recited are ten rewards

Its companions will be interceded for on the Day of Judgment

My pen can never encapsulate its beauty neither

The wave of its words penetrates the tear gland

Oh! How can I express the light of the Qur’an?

With it the heart derives solace

And the eyes shed tears of ecstasy 

The warmth of the tears washing off sins 

Nothing is left out in the Qur'an

For it is universal

It provides light where darkness dominates

And hope where despondency reigns

It broadens all narrow paths

 And leads men and Jinn to the Ultimate salvation

Simply short of lines

Ya Allaah let our love for Qur'an take us to the highest abode of Jannatul Firdausi as we travel through it in this Month of Ramadan.
