Quran Dreams by Recite & Reflect
My ideal relationship with the Qu’ran would be that I have a connection with Allah (swt) that brings me more comfort than I’ve ever known. Whilst I say my purpose as a Muslim is to worship Allah (awj) alone, I know that I can’t even come close to that without feeling a true connection with Allah through the Qu’ran.
I have found that whilst if someone asked what I’m aspiring for in life, I would say Jannah. But, it feels like these are just words, and these words don’t come through in my actions. If I had a better relationship with the Qu’ran, I would truly aspire for what I’m here for. I would truly be in fear of the punishment of the hellfire, because I would believe sincerely in the warnings and descriptions Allah (swt) has given me.
I would imagine never ever feeling lonely if I had a relationship with the Qu’ran. I could hear Allah (swt)’s words whenever, wherever and I would feel so special. Like He’s talking directly to me.
When I look around at Muslims now, I can see that the foundation of our lives isn’t the Qu’ran. The Qu’ran doesn’t have an active role in our lives, it’s not part of our identity.
I don’t want this for myself anymore, or for my family. I want our lives to be engulfed with the Qu’ran. That we are constantly aspiring to recite it, to learn it, to abide by it and to have a strong bond with it.
