The Right of Al-Quran – Islamic Online Media


Quranul Kareem is an infinite blessing for world humanity. The great grace of Allah is that He has revealed the Quran to us. The Qur’an says,

َّلرَّحۡمَٰنُ ١ عَلَّمَ ٱلۡقُرۡءَانَ َ [الرحمن: ١، ٢]

‘He is the Most Merciful, He (Allah) taught the Qur’an’ -[সূরা আর-রহমান : ১-২]।

The Qur’an is a book through which that barbaric nation of Arabia became a fortunate nation. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) created the greatest man in the world with the Qur’aan. He says

«خ .يْرُ النَّاسِ قَرْنِي»

‘My age is the greatest in the universe’ -[সহীহ বুখারী : ২৬৫২]।

There are a number of rights in the Qur’an that must be fulfilled. Many of its rights are such that if one does not fulfill them, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) will complain against him in the Court of Allaah on the Day of Resurrection. The Qur’an says,

وَقَالَ الٱرَّسُولُ يَٰرَبِّ َّنَّ قَوۡمِي َّتَّخَذُواْ هَٰذَا ٱلۡقُرۡءَانَ مَهۡجُورٗا ٣٠﴾ [الفرقان: ٣٠]

And the Messenger will say (on the Day of Resurrection), “O my Lord, surely my people have rejected this Qur’an.”[সূরা আল-ফুরকান : ৩০]।

The rights of the Qur’an over us are discussed here:

To believe

One of the major rights of the Qur’an is to believe in the Qur’an. Believing in the Qur’an means: The Qur’an is the word of Allah, it is the last heavenly book and through this book all the heavenly books have been abolished. The Qur’an is a guide for mankind and a light from Allah. In the Qur’an,

َفَامِنُوا بِٱلَّلَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ وَٱلُّنُّورِ َّلَّذِيٓ َنزَلۡنَا وَٱللَّهُ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُونَ خَبِيرٞ [التغابن: ٨]

So believe in Allah and His Messenger and the light which We have sent down. And Allah is well acquainted with all that ye do.[সূরা আত-তাগাবুন : ০৮]।

Bending / Uticju [البقرة: ٨٥]

‘Do you believe in some parts of the Book and disbelieve in others? So what is the reward for those of you who do that except disgrace in the life of this world? And on the Day of Resurrection they will be thrown into the most severe torment. And Allah is not unaware of what you do.[সূরা আল-বাকারাহ : ৮৫]।

Know how to read correctly

It has been made obligatory to teach the Qur’an. Every Muslim should know how to read Quran. Because the Qur’an says,

﴿ٱقۡرَأۡ بِٱسۡمِ رَبِّكَ ٱلَّذِي خَلَقَ َ [العلق: ١]

‘Read in the name of your Lord Who created.’ [সূরাহ আলাক : ১]. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) instructed the teaching of the Qur’aan and said,

«تَعَلَّمُوا الْقُرْآنَ, وَاتْلُوهُ»

‘Teach the Qur’an and recite it’ [মুসনাদ আল-জামি‘ : ৯৮৯০]।

To recite and listen

Recitation of the Qur’an is one of the rights of the Qur’an. The Qur’an instructs:

تۡلۡ مُا أُوحِيَ إِلَيۡكَ مِنَ ۡلۡكِتَٰبِ﴾ [العنكبوت: ٤٥]

‘Recite from the Book which has been revealed to you’ -[সূরাহ আনকাবুত : ৪৫]।

You have to recite the Qur’an correctly. The etiquette of recitation must be protected. It should not be pronounced in Bengali.

On the authority of Abu Huraira who said: The Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace, said: “He is not one of us who does not sing the Qur’an.”

Narrated Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him): The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said,[সহীহ বুখারী : ৭৫২৭]।

It has been said in the Qur’an with the instruction to recite slowly.

َوَرَتِّلِ ٱلۡقُرۡءَانَ تَرۡتِيلًا ٤﴾ [المزمل: ٤]

‘Recite the Qur’an slowly.'[সূরা আল-মুযযাম্মিল : ৪]।

And there is a great reward in reciting the Qur’an. It is narrated on the authority of Abdullah bin Masood (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

«مَنْ قَرَأَ حَرْفًا مِنِ كِتَابِ اللهِ فَلَهُ بِهِ حَسَنَةٌ, وَهَلَسَنَةُ بِعَشْرِ أَمْثَالِهَا َََََََُُ

‘Whoever reads a letter of the Qur’an is given a virtue. Each virtue is equal to ten virtues. I am not saying that alif-lam-meem is a letter. Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter and Meem is a letter.[সুনান আত-তিরমিযি : ২৯১০]।

Listening to the recitation of the Qur’an is an important thing. In the hadith,

تغنى فپيزي … ياعلعن ………, … … …………. … ………. زنبل) Remube الي زنجه الناتفهاص

Abdullah bin Masood (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said to me, ‘Recite the Qur’an to me.’ I said, ‘The Qur’an has been revealed to you. How can I recite the Qur’an to you?’ He said, “I love to hear the Qur’an from others.”[সহীহ বুখারী : ৫০৪৯]।

Teaching others

One of the rights of the Qur’an is to teach others. One of the duties of our beloved prophet was to teach the Qur’an to the people. The Qur’an says,

﴿لَقَدۡ مَنَّ ٱللَّهُ عَلَى ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ إِذۡ بَعَثَ فِيهِمۡ رَسُولٗا مِّنۡ أَنفُسِهِمۡ يَتۡلُواْ عَلَيۡهِمۡ ءَايَٰتِهِۦ وَيُزَكِّيهِمۡ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ ٱلۡكِتَٰبَ وَٱلۡحِكۡمَةَ وَإِن كَانُواْ مِن قَبۡلُ لَفِي ضَلَٰلٖ مُّبِينٍ ١٦٤﴾ [آل عمران: ١٦٤]

Surely Allah has been gracious to the believers when He has sent to them a messenger from among them who recites to them His communications and purifies them and teaches them the Book and Wisdom. Even though they were already in clear error. “[সূরা আলে ইমরান : ১৬৪]. There is no better job than teaching the Qur’an. In the hadith,

عَنْ عُثْمَانَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ عَنْ الَّنَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ

Narrated ‘Uthman (may Allaah be pleased with him): The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: The best of you is the one who teaches the Qur’aan himself and teaches others.[সহীহ বুখারী : ৫০২৭]. If one teaches the Qur’an to another, the same reward has been declared for him as the learner. In the hadith,

«الْدَّالَ عَلَى الْخَيْر كَفَاعِلِه»

The one who guides to a good deed will get the same reward as the one who performs this deed.[সুনান আত-তিরমীযি : ২৬৭০]।


It is important to memorize the Qur’an. Because Allah Himself has taken the responsibility of memorizing the Qur’an. One of the types of this memorization is to make the servants memorize the Qur’an. Through which Allah has preserved His Qur’an. In the Qur’an,

َّنَّا نَحۡنُ نَزَّلۡنَا ِّلذِّكۡرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُۥ لَحَٰفِظُونَ َ [الحجر: ٩]

“Surely I have sent down the Quran, and I am its guardian.”[সূরা আল-হিজর : ০৯]।

The more parts he can memorize, the better for him. It is narrated on the authority of Abdullah bin Amr bin As-Radiyallahu Anhu that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

«يُقَالُ لِصَاحِبِ الْقُرْآنِ اقْرَأْ وَارْتَقِ وَرَتِّلْ كمَا كْنْتَ تَرَتِّلُ فِى الدُّنْيَا فَإِنَّ مَنْزِلَكَ عِنْرَ اَةٍرَاا َِرِا

The memorizer of the Qur’an will be told to recite the Qur’an, and keep on rising, recite slowly and steadily with the recitation, as in the world with recitation with the recitation. Because your place in Paradise will be where your verses end. “[সুনান আত-তিরমিযী : ২৯১৪]।

Understand and appreciate

Understanding the meaning of the Qur’an is one of the rights of the Qur’an. If we do not understand the meaning of the Qur’an, we will not be able to fulfill the purpose and demands of the revelation of the Qur’an. If you do not understand the real fun of the Qur’an can not be found. To understand the Qur’an, one must know the meaning of words, the interpretation of the verses, the reason or context in which they were revealed, and the teachings of the verses of the Qur’an. In the Qur’an,

َّنَّآ َنزَلۡنَٰهُ قُرۡءَٰنًا عَرَبِيّٗا لَّعَلَّكُمۡ تَعۡقِلُونَ َ [يوسف: ٢]

“Verily, We have sent it down as an Arabic Quran, so that you may understand.”[সূরা ইউসুফ: ০২]. Anyone can be confused without the help of Hadith in understanding the Qur’an. In that case, it is possible to understand the Qur’an correctly only with the help of Hadith. The Qur’an says,

وَمَآ ءَاتَىٰكُمُ الَّرَّسُولُ فَخُذُوهُ وَمَا نَهَىٰكُمۡ عَنۡهُ فَٱنتَهُواْۚ﴾ [الحشر: ٧]

“And accept what the Messenger gives you, and refrain from what he forbids you.”[সূরা আল-হাশর: ৭]. Besides understanding the Qur’an, one has to think about it.

َفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ الۡقُرۡءَانَ أَمۡ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبٍ أَقۡفَالُهَآ ٢٤﴾ [محمد : ٢٤]

But do they not ponder over the Qur’an? Or are their hearts locked up? ” [সূরা মুহাম্মাদ : ২৪]।

To act

Practicing the Qur’an means following the Qur’an. Build your life according to the Qur’an. In this regard, the Qur’an has instructed,

﴿ٱتَّبِعُواْ مَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡكُم مِّن رَّبِّكُمۡ وَلَا تَتَّبِعُواْ مِن دُونِهِۦٓ أَوۡلِيَآءَۗ قَلِيلٗا مَّا تَذَكَّرُونَ ٣﴾ [الأعراف: ٣]

‘Follow what has been sent down to you from your Lord, and do not follow guardians besides Him. Take a little admonition ‘-[সূরা আল-আরাফ : ৩]।

Abdullah bin Masood, an expert in the knowledge of the Qur’an, said:

«Email العلعضس عبذ الاق عل عشي الشع |

“When we learned ten verses of the Qur’an from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), we did not learn the next ten verses until we learned the knowledge and practice of these ten verses.”[শরহে মুশকিলুল আছার : ১৪৫০]।

Giving due respect and dignity

The Quran is honored and those who stay with the Quran are also entitled to honor. For this, the Qur’an should be given due status. He has to realize his rights while reciting the Qur’an. It has been narrated in the Quran,

َّلَّذِينَ ءَاتَيۡنَٰهُمُ ۡلۡكِتَٰبَ يَتۡلُونَهُۥ حَقَّ تِلَاوَتِهِۦٓ وْلَٰٓئِكَ يُؤۡمِنُونَ بِهِۦۗ وَمَنَ يَكۡفُرۡه [البقرة: ١٢١]

‘Those to whom I have given the Book read it properly. They are the ones who believe in him. And whoever denies it, he indeed is the loser.[সূরা আল-বাকারাহ : ১২১]. Loving the Qur’an is tantamount to loving Allah and His Messenger. Abdullah bin Masood (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

“He who loves the Qur’an loves God and His Messenger.”

“Whoever loves the Qur’an, let him love Allah and His Messenger.”[জামিউল উলুম ওয়াল হিকাম : ৩২৯]।

To propagate and establish the Quran

One of the rights of the Qur’an is to propagate, spread and establish the Qur’an. Establishing Quran Learning Centers under one’s own management, Quran Recitation Competition, Memorization Competition, Quran Understanding Asr, Tafsir Competition, Introduction of Maqtab, Sending or sponsoring Quran teachers in different areas Providing overall support is included in this work. Above all, the provisions of the Qur’an must be established in the society. It is said in the Quran,

وأَنَأَ ۡۡلُوَا اللۡقُرۡءَانَۖ فَمَنِ ٱهۡتَدَىٰ فَإِنَّمَا يَهۡتَدِي لِنَفۡسِهِۦۖ وَمَن ضَلَّ فَقُلۡ َّنمٱم۠نأَم [النمل: ٩٢]

And let me study the Qur’an, then whoever is guided is guided for himself; And say to him who goes astray, “I am of the warners.”[সূরা আন-নামল : ৯২]।

﴿۞يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلرَّسُولُ بَلِّغۡ مَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡكَ مِن رَّبِّكَۖ ﴾ [المائ‍دة: ٦٧]

O Messenger, convey what has been sent down to you from your Lord [সূরা আল-মায়িদাহ : ৬৭]. There is an opportunity to express joy in reciting, memorizing, propagating, spreading and establishing the Qur’an. The Qur’an is a book that believers can rejoice in. Because the Qur’an says,

The first of the Lord lashraul is a friendly fertility salarifia alfasm of the safety of 57 prame [يونس: ٥٧، ٥٨]

O people, there has come to you admonition from your Lord and healing of what is in the hearts, and guidance and mercy for the believers. Say: By the grace and mercy of Allah. So let them be happy with this. That is better than what they hoard. ‘[সূরা ইউনুস : ৫৭-৫৮]. Abu Sa’id Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) said,[শুয়াবুল ঈমান]।

Dear reader!

Are we able to realize the rights of the Quran? Is there any effort to realize? Let us realize the rights of the Qur’an, qualify to receive the recommendation of the Qur’an on that terrible day of Resurrection. May Allah grant us the tawfiq to follow the rights of the Qur’an properly. Amen!
