What did you learn from Surah Yusuf?

 

Some of the challenges we  might face with the Quran nowadays are:

1. When someone asks: “So, you have been reading the Quran for 25 years right? What did you learn from Surah Yusuf?”

When we read the Quran, we don’t check the translation or tafseer. We don’t even know what we are reciting.

2. Even when we check the translation, do we pause for a moment and think about it? For example, in Surah Imran [3:190]: “Indeed, in the creation of the sky and the earth..”

​Have we ever look up at the sky or at the earth and think about it?

3. Even when we think about it, do we ponder upon it? For example:

Notes:
Zaalikal kitaab means ‘that book’  : to point out something further;
Haazal kitaab means ‘this book’ : to point out something nearer.

Have we ever thought about these?

“If you do what the Qur’an challenges you to do, to reflect on it deeply, you will arrive at the conclusion that it could not be from other than God.” -Shaykh Hamza Yusuf

The average Muslim, when they say I’m gonna teach my child Quran, they mean two things:- recitation, and memorization.

These two things, recitation and memorization, are both important. However, if we don’t know what we are reciting, if we don’t understand what we are memorizing, will the lesson insight the verses deeply touch our heart?
