Books: Personal lessons from the Qur’an E-Book
The Noble Qur’an comprises thirty parts, or Ajzaa’; each part, or Juz, consists of twenty pages. The thirty parts of the Qur’an contain a wealth of knowledge, advice, admonitions, and daily life inspiration. In Personal Lessons from the Qur’an, Daily Action Points based on Qur’anic Ayaat, the reader is inspired to transform the verses into daily life actions.
Quranic Reflections (Khawatir Quraniyyah)
At the start of each chapter, there will be a brief overview the main themes of each Juz in the Qur’an, in order to gain a basic understanding of the message of the Qur’an and how the different Ajzaa’ (plural of Juz) related to each other.
Much of the inspiration for these overviews came from the book Khawatir Quraniyyah (Reflections from the Quran) by dr Amr Khalid.
Personal Lessons per Juz
Along with the Khawatir Quraniyyah introduction per chapter, there will be daily action points based on the ayaat (or verses) in the Juz. These personal lessons serve to transform our character, and consquently our life, through the Qur’an.
It is upon the reader to use these lessons as true action points and not merely as a text to read through in one go, similar to the way a story would be read.
The aim is to read, reflect and ensure for oneself to take action based on the topics covered in each of the daily action points.
How to use this book
With (a translation of) the Qur’an present, look up the Surah and ayah number mentioned in the chapters of this book, read the ayah in the Qur’an and refer back to the given action point.
The ayah’s text has purposefully been omitted to only leave the Surah and ayah number. This has been done to inspire the reader to look up the ayah themselves in the Qur’an. Eg. 2:67 represents Surah 2, which is Surah al Baqarah, ayah 67 of Surah Al Baqarah (The Cow). Alternatively, the whole Juz can be read first in the Qur’an, in both Arabic and/or a translation of one’s own language, and one can refer back to the chapter with Personal Lessons of that same Juz.
Similarly, one can randomly read from this work at any time and be inspired by the action point(s).
We ask Allah, Glorified is He, to make this work a source of benefit and inspiration to action for the reader in order to gain closeness to Him. We humbly request those who benefit, to supplicate to the Lord of the Worlds for those involved in compiling these lessons; and enter them into the Highest Paradise without Reckoning.
