On the first day of taraweeh, I was on cloud nine, alhamdulillah. Why? Because I understood (mostly) what was being recited. In AlHuda, we had finished a little more than half of the first Juzz’ so hearing the Qari recite that… was amazing, to say it in one word. That got me thinking, what if the whole jam-packed masjid had understanding of the Qur’an? What if they knew why the Qari emphasized one verse or repeated another? What if it touched all their hearts? Where then would our Ummah be?
Sigh. It’s Ramadan. Which also makes it the best time to make du’aa for the betterment of the Ummah 🙂 The moral of the story: learn the meaning of the Qur’an. WaAllahi, it changes your life, your outlook, your Eman, your… everything. Alhamdulillahi rabbil alameen.
