Qur'an

Why do we read Qur'an... even if we can't understand a single Arabic word?

An old man lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern Kentucky with his young grandson.... Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his Qur'an. His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in every way he could...

One day the grandson asked... 'Grandpa! I try to read the Qur'an just like you but I don't understand it... and what I do understand I forget as soon as I close the book... What good does reading the Qur'an do?' The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied... 'Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of water...'

The boy did as he was told... but all the water leaked out before he got back to the house... The grandfather laughed and said... 'You'll have to move a little faster next time...' and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again... This time the boy ran faster... but again the basket was empty before he returned home... Out of breath... he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket... and he went to get a bucket instead... The old man said... 'I don't want a bucket of water... I want a basket of water... You're just not trying hard enough...' and he went out the door to watch the boy try again...

At this point... the boy knew it was impossible... but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could... the water would Leak out before he got back to the house... The boy again dipped the basket into river and ran hard... but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty... Out of breath... he said... 'See Grandpa... it's useless!' 'So you think it is useless?' The old man said... 'Look at the basket...'

The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different... It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now clean... inside and out...

'Son... that's what happens when you read the Qur'an... You might not understand or remember everything... but when you read it... you will be changed... inside and out... That is the work of Allah in our lives...'

If you feel this email is worth reading... please forward to your contacts or friends... Prophet Muhammad (saw) says: 'The one who guides to good will be rewarded equally'

Wallahualam...

bijak sungguh atuknya menyelesaiakn segala persoalan yg bermain diminda cucunya..itu memang terang2 dan mudah utk kita paham..

tapi la ni org letak alquran atas gobok depan umah sampai bersawang utk ape?utk elakkan makhluk halus masuk umah..bukan utk dibaca..
hmm...

Walaikumsalam Man,
Ngko pun dah jadi se spesis ngan aku ke? Jadi burung hantu? Atau terkenang2 sidia? kui3x....

Kekadang nak mendidik... tak boleh direct terus... kene bagi sedikit contoh seperti kisah tersebut... supaya org yg nak tahu tu lebih memahami...

kekadang ada yg framekan Al-Quran...takut kene habuk atau sawang... adoiyai...

Ngko pun tumpang sekaki jadi burung hantu...kihkihkih... mari2 reramaikan komuniti burung hantu...hahaha...

Mungkin itu cara yg terbaik utk mendidik bebudak... supaya lebih memahami... :)

Nice! I'm inspired by your story. Thanks for sharing.

**Education is a unique system. Learning too. And I guess we have to discover every possible ways to make both of this systems work. :)

Perfect analogies used in the grandpapa's story. Brilliantly put!

My father has told me a long time ago (when he first discovered Tariqat/Tasawuf),read Al-Furqan as if you understand the content,read it & keep reading it.Almighty Allah will open your heart during the process.

This post reminds me of kinder side of my folks :)

Salam kak Ida,
Yep! Setuju sangat... Qur'an itu penawar bg mereka yg mengamalkannya... Sayang kebanyakan mereka lebih suka menyimpan@mempamerkan sebagai peralatan hisasan... Nauzubillah...

amirul said...

Naz, Skang nih sume nak duit... no money no talk...hahaha...

Naz said...

Tu la pasalnya. Kalo ko nak duit banyak, bole pergi negara Zimbabwe. Sana kalo jual sepeket kacang putih, boleh dpt selonggok duit depa. Kalo time gaji, duit main timbang2 kilo jer.
"1 US Dollar = 37,456,777 Zimbabwe Dollar "
Try ko search kat Google... ;p

amirul said...

Naz, Bior botul? Tapi kalu 1 Zimbabwe Dollar tukar ke 1 RM baper gaknye ye? Kalu tak berbaloi... lupokan je le...

Nanti aku try search kat google... :)

Naz said...

kalo convert rm dpt berjuta juger. Nak jadi jutawan segera bawak la dlm seploh hinggit kat sana. compom jutawan. negara zimbabwe adalah negara yg kadar insflasi paling teruk kat dunia.
