Ramadan is the month of the Quran. For that cause, we’re typically fairly good at making the Quran a central focus through the blessed month, at the very least to some extent. We pray Taraweeh on the mosque, we take heed to Islamic lectures, maybe we even decide up a mushaf and recite it in Arabic. We hope to instill the love for the Quran in our kids’s hearts throughout this month. There’s a frequent false impression nevertheless that Ramadan is a springboard with regards to the Quran: we predict that we will construct our relationship with the Quran for the entire yr relying on how a lot time we dedicate to it throughout Ramadan. We wait till Ramadan to really feel this particular eman rush and we get simply disillusioned and discouraged a number of days into Shawwaal once we understand that we have now already misplaced our good Quran habits, and that our children are usually not nearer to the Ebook of Allah SWT now than they had been previous to Ramadan.

The truth is that Ramadan is sort of a marathon: we have to practice the entire yr as a way to reap all of the blessings of this particular month. Which means we will not simply look forward to the Ramadan eman increase to get our household began with the Quran. We want a each day plug with the Ebook of Allah SWT as a way to develop as a Quran-centric household. So, how can we try this? We must be intentional about it and apply the 3Ds methodology: Dua, Every day habits, and Dialogue.

1. Dua

As with every part else, we have to flip to Allah SWT and ask Him for steerage and ease in constructing our relationship with His Ebook as a household. Do not forget that there isn’t a such factor as a “dangerous time” to make dua so simply do it and preserve doing it. There are particular occasions and conditions which were highlighted in narrations for assured duas, so ensure that, on the very least, you do not miss these golden alternatives: at evening, within the final third of the evening, on Friday, when fasting, upon praising Allah SWT, making istighfaar and sending salutations upon our beloved Prophet (SAWS), on the finish of your prayer, and so forth and so forth.

2. Every day habits

Take into consideration small however constant modifications you may make in your family to be a extra Quran-centric household and ask your loved ones members for ideas on how to try this so that everybody can get excited concerning the modifications. As an example, take a couple of minutes to learn one ayah, its translation and which means proper earlier than or after dinner; pray collectively as a household; take heed to Tafseer podcasts or watch movies collectively concerning the Quran as a substitute of one other film evening; learn Surah Al-Kahf collectively on Thursday evening or Friday and permit everybody to take part; go attend halaqaat on the mosque, and so forth.

3. Dialogue

You will need to at all times permit discussions to occur with regards to the Quran, particularly you probably have older kids or youngsters in your house. Youngsters are naturally curious and have loads of questions, on a regular basis. Some may be difficult, and, in lots of instances, you won’t have the solutions. However do encourage your kids to ask anyway and provide to search out solutions with them by speaking to a trusted, educated group chief such because the imam of the native mosque. That is a part of our deen: we must always at all times search information, and that can solely come if we ask questions. Your each day habits to extend your loved ones’s relationship with the Quran is not going to go far should you shut the door as quickly as your children have questions – generally unsettling – about it.

Ramadan is a tremendous time of yr, and it’s pure that we dedicate extra time to the Quran and different points of our deen throughout Ramadan than the remainder of the yr. Nevertheless, constructing a relationship with the Quran is a lifelong journey that does not want a particular time of yr to get began. Might Allah SWT instill the love and understanding of the Quran in your and your kids’s hearts, ameen!
