BENEFITS OF READING/LEARNING QURAN
Reading Quran is the most spiritual and delightful journey for a Muslim. It gives answers to the
questions of the soul. It is a Divine book of guidance and mercy from Allah to mankind. It increases the
faith of Muslims in Allah and His Prophet P.B.U.H. As Allah Himself narrates in Quran:
And He found you lost and guided (you).
Some of the benefits of learning and reading the Quran are as follows:
AN ESCAPE FROM THE DARKNESS
Quran enlightens one’s heart with the light of knowledge. Its words are full of wisdom that lead Muslims
toward Heaven. Allah says in Quran:
“Alif, Laam, Raa. (This is a) Book which We have revealed to You, (O Muhammad) that you might bring
mankind out of darkness into light by permission of their Lord…”
PATHWAY TO HEAVEN
Allah promises lots of rewards for reciting and learning the Quran. One of which is stated in the Quran
“Establish prayer at the decline of the sun until the darkness of the night and also the Quran of dawn.
Indeed, the recitation of dawn is ever witnessed”
ONLINE QURAN TEACHING
Prophet Muhammad S.A.W has laid a lot of stress on the importance of teaching the Quran. One of His
“The best amongst you is the one who learns the Quran and teaches it”
BENEFITS OF ONLINE QURAN CLASSES
In this era of the Internet, online learning is widely adopted in almost all countries of the world. Online
Quran teaching is also getting attention because of its benefits. Some of them are listed below:
FLEXIBILITY OF TIME AND SPACE
In the traditional method of Quran teaching, kids are sent to madrassas or Quran schools. Sometimes
the schedule doesn’t fit the busy parents’ schedule. The online method of Quran learning provides
flexibility for the parents to choose the time that fits them.
ACCESS TO QUALIFIED QURAN TEACHERS
Online Quran learning provides access to qualified and well-educated Quran teachers from all over the
world. You are not bound to opt for the teachers near you. You can check the qualification of an online
teacher and hire them.
PROMISED SECURITY OF CHILDREN
Parents are a lot more concerned about the safety of their children these days. Child abuse by teachers
is also very stressful. When adopting online means of learning the Quran, parents can keep an eye on
the children which provides them peace of mind.
INTERACTIVE LEARNING AND FEEDBACK
The traditional way of Quran teaching lacks interactive learning because of the high number of students
in class and other distractions. Online Quran learning allows the parents to interact with the kids’
teachers in different ways.
It also motivates the parents to pay more attention to the kids as they receive monthly progress reports
from the teachers. These monthly reports also enable parents to know about the progress of their kids.
FEMALE QURAN TEACHERS FOR GIRLS STUDENTS
Learning Quran is as important for ladies as well as Muslim brothers. Most Muslim ladies prefer online
Quran learning because it provides the convenience of education from home. Sometimes Quran school
is far from home. In some cases, parents are not able to take them to Islamic centers because of their
job timings. Even if they find a female Quran tutor near their home, sometimes they can face the
difficulty of difference in the timing.
Online female Quran teachers are the best solution in all these cases. This provides them with flexible
time and space to opt for Quran classes.
QURAN RECITATION DURING MENSTRUATION
Reading Quran during the menstruation cycle is a widely asked question. On this issue, different scholars
have different stances.
ALLOWING QURAN RECITATION DURING MENSES
Scholars that allow Quran recitation during the menstruation cycle of a woman have based their
- In Islam, things are allowed or forbidden on clear-cut pieces of evidence. There is no clear
evidence to prove that a menstruating woman is not allowed to recite Quran. This is the stance
of Sheikh Ibn e Taymyah.
- Forbidding a Muslim woman from the Quran recitation deprives her of virtue and reward. She
may be a Quran teacher or Quran student and not allowing her to recite may make her forget
something from her Quran lesson.
FORBIDDING QURAN RECITATION DURING MENSES
The scholars who forbid Quran recitation during the menstruation cycle have based their statement on:
- Scholars relate the state of menstruation with the state of Janabah, because both states require
ghusl to get cleaned. This is based on one of the Ahadith narrated by Hazrat Ali (R.A) according
to which Prophet P.B.U.H used to teach the Quran and never prevented anyone from learning it
except those who were junub. (Abu Daud, Al-Tirmidhi, al-Nasai, ibn e Majah)
- There is also another Hadith saying “The menstruating woman and the one who is in the state of
janabah should not recite anything of the Quran” but this hadith is considered as dha’if so it is
not accepted by other scholars.
AND ALLAH KNOWS THE BEST
TOUCHING QURAN DURING PERIODS
It is also very important to mention that “reciting Quran” means reading the verses of the Quran by
memory and touching Quran means touching Mus’haf (an actual copy of the written Quran)
Scholars are gathered on the stance that a woman on her period is not allowed to touch Mus’haf.
Because Allah says
“…….which none can touch but purified”
Scholars also believe that the content of a letter that was sent to the people of Yemen by Prophet S.A.W
saying “No one should touch the Quran, except the one who is Tahir (pure)” is Sahih.
Scholars believe that this Hadith is credible because it is so well known amongst the scholars of Sirah.
They accepted it because of its tawatur and because people recognized it.
Scholars have forbidden women to touch the Mus’haf when in menses. Some scholars allow reciting the
Quran during menstruation state and others forbid it. Both groups have pieces of evidence to support
AND ALLAH KNOWS BEST.
