al quran fi ramadhan – thoughts on quran and taraweeh

 

“O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed upon those before you in order that you may attain taqwaa [in general, it means ‘God consciousness,’ ‘God awareness,’ ‘fear of God,’ and so on].” [Soorah al-Baqarah (2):183]

Ask your son or daughter, what can we do during this month to attain taqwaa? We will fast insha’Allah, recite Quran, memorize Quran, give in charity, increase our salah, pray taraweeh… etc.

Then tell them the beauty of what Allah subhana wa t’ala says, “.. and when my servants ask you [oh Muhammad] concerning me, tell them I am near. I will respond to the supplicant when he calls upon me. So let them respond to me [by obedience] and believe in me so that they may be [rightly] guided. [Soorah al-Baqarah (2):186]

Following this is a good time to teach them some dua’a they use in supplications. If they are older, take them to taraweeh with you (or have your husband take them insha’Allah). If your first language with your children is not arabic, make sure to go over the Quran that was recited in taraweeh so they can understand what was said. It is good mashaAllah to get through the whole Quran in a month, but there is more reward if you know the meaning behind it inshaAllah.
