IQRA’_ NUZUL al_QURAN

Kisah Perang Badar Al-Kubra (terjadi pada 17 Ramadhan tahun ke 2 Hijrah, ketika umat Islam pertama kali melaksanakan puasa Ramadhan) amat sinonim dengan peristiwa Nuzul al-Quran yang diraikan di negara kita. Kini, tarikh 17 Ramadhan tergolong sebagai cuti umum di Malaysia mengambilkira kepentingan Islam sebagai agama rasmi di negara ini.

Peristiwa Nuzul al-Quran berlaku pada malam Jumaat, 17 Ramadhan, tahun ke-41 daripada keputeraan Nabi Muhamad SAW; merupakan salah-satu tarikh penting dalam Islam. Mengikut sejarawan dan pengkaji hadith, hal tersebut berlaku 13 tahun sebelum penghijrahan Rasulullah saw. ke Madinah atau bersamaan 6 Ogos, 610Masihi.

Bagaimanapun, menurut pendapat yang lebih tepat , dikatakan Nuzul al_Quran berlaku pada 24 Ramadhan = 13 Ogos, 610Masihi berdasarkan surah al-Qadr dan ad-Dukhan. wallahu’alam..

Al-Quran sebagai sinar kebenaran, simbol ketenangan dan penawar kepada segala penyakit adalah mukjizat terakhir yang terpelihara sehingga ke hari qiamat nanti, dijamin Allah petunjuk ke jalan lurusNya selama tidak ditinggalkan intipati dan beriman penuh kepadanya.

Firman Allah:

 (Al-An’am:38)

Dan tidak seekor pun binatang yang melata di bumi, dan tidak seekor pun burung yang terbang dengan kedua sayapnya, melainkan mereka umat-umat seperti kamu. Tiada Kami tinggalkan sesuatu pun di dalam kitab Al-Quran ini; kemudian mereka semuanya akan dihimpunkan kepada Tuhan mereka (untuk dihisab dan menerima balasan).

al-Quran adalah hidayah, rahmat, syifa, nur, furqan dan pemberi penjelasan bagi manusia.. Segala isi kandungan al-Quran itu benar. Al-Quran juga dikenali sebagai Al-Nur bererti cahaya yang menerangi, al-Furqan bererti yang dapat membezakan di antara yang hak dan batil dan al-Zikr pula bermaksud yang memberi peringatan.

Sesungguhnya Kami telah menurunkan (Al-Quran) ini pada Malam Lailatul-Qadar, Dan apa jalannya engkau dapat mengetahui apa dia kebesaran Malam Lailatul-Qadar itu? Malam Lailatul-Qadar lebih baik daripada seribu bulan. Pada Malam itu, turun malaikat dan Jibril dengan izin Tuhan mereka, kerana membawa segala perkara (yang ditakdirkan berlakunya pada tahun yang berikut); Sejahteralah Malam (yang berkat) itu hingga terbit fajar!

(al-Qadar:1-5)

IQRA’ adalah awalan ayat al-Quran yang pertama diturunkan Allah kepada Nabi Muhammad SAW melalui perantaraan malaikat Jibrail di Gua Hira’ daripada surah Al-‘Alaq yang menegaskan suruhan membaca sebagai satu kaedah utama meraih ilmu pengetahuan yang sangat berkesan.

”Bacalah (wahai Muhammad) dengan nama Tuhan mu yang menciptakan (sekalian makhluk), Ia menciptakan manusia dari sebuku darah beku; Bacalah, dan Tuhan mu Yang Maha Pemurah, -Yang mengajar manusia melalui pena dan tulisan, -Ia mengajarkan manusia apa yang tidak diketahuinya.” (al-‘alaq:1-5)

Why should we read the Quran, even when we do not understand even a single arabic word? (c&p)

RECITE IT EVERYDAY~

Masya Allah!

Have u read this article before? I found it 3 years ago somewhere; and republished it here again in the event of NUZUL QURAN! 

May Allah bless us always ~ recite alQuran daily – it’s a sunnah!

An old American Muslim lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern Kentucky with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his Quran. His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in every way he could.

One day the grandson asked,

“Grandpa! I try to read the Quran just like you but I don’t understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon as I close the book. What good does reading the Qur’an do?”

The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied,

“Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of water.”

The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back to the house. The grandfather laughed and said, “You’ll have to move a little faster next time,” and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again.

This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead.

The old man said, “I don’t want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water. You’re just not trying hard enough,” and he went out the door to watch the boy try in.

At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got back to the house. The boy again dipped the basket into river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty. Out of breath, he said, “See Grandpa, it’s useless!”

The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now clean, inside and out.

Son, that’s what happens when you read the Qur’an. You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out. That is the work of Allah in our lives.”
