Switch - OFF Special

Print

In many homes the radio is playing almost 24 hours a day. We are listening to Quraan, nazams, talks, speech contests, and quiz competitions. The tragedy is that these programs have now taken the place of our own personal recitation of the quraan, zikr and dua. Ramadaan is a month of the Quraan. Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammed Zakariyya Khandhelwi (rahimahullah) writes regarding the women of his household and the importance they gave to reciting the Quraan. He states that together with their house work, they managed to easily complete fifteen to twenty juz (paras) daily. Let us all try this Ramadaan to switch off all stations and increase our recitation of the Quraan, the zikr of the first kalimah and istighfaar. Some time daily should also be dedicated for dua.
