Importance of Learning Quran in Islam

Knowledge, learning and education are summarized in only one heavenly book, which is called “Quran”. Islam gives importance to the learning of Quran as it is a complete code of conduct of life. Every human activity starting point is to learn. Here, in Islam, when Quran was revealed, it ‘s the first word was “Iqra”, which means is to read.

The Holy Book Quran is the best book as it is the fountainhead of entire learning. On the other hand, Quran is completely different from other books. Other books give us the knowledge of being a good Human. They discussed with specific subjects and topics. On the other hand, Quran has no specific topics or subjects. It is a deep ocean of knowledge and learning that guide us till our last breath. That’s why Islam has emphasized the learning of Quran. The Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be upon Him) said,

“O people I am leaving behind among you the Holy Book (Quran) and the Sunnah (way of Prophet (SAW)), if you follow these in letter and spirit you will never be strayed.”

The importance of Quran is also revealed by the Last Message of our Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be upon Him) that Holy Quran is the last and final message of Almighty Allah (SWT) which guarantees success on the Earth and Heaven. In Holy Quran, Allah has laid down all the laws of valuable knowledge, good deeds, and prosperity for his whole mankind. By reading Holy Quran, the doors of spiritual satisfaction and solace opens to its reader, that is the reason Islam gives importance to the learning of Quran. It’s stated in the Quran also:

“And indeed We have made the Qur’an easy for direction and guidance, but is there anyone who will take advice?”

(Sura Al-Qamar 54, verse # 17)

Religion Islam stated in many places that reader of Holy Quran will have an unprecedented and exemplary character. In Ahadith, Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be upon Him). praised its readers by saying:

” The Best amongst you is (he) who learns and teaches the Holy Quran.”

(Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Hadith # 4739)

It is also narrated by Hazrat Abu Zar (RA) that Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be upon Him) said to him:

“O, Abu Zar! It is better for you to learn a single verse of Holy Quran in the morning rather pray hundreds of Rakaat (Nafal Prayer)”

(Ibn-e-Maja, Volume 1, Hadith # 619)
