“I feel huge blessings in being part of Read & Rise, remembering its inception 10 years ago and watching it grow year upon year to this vast competition
I hope and pray this competition becomes available to everyone to encourage learning the Qur’an in every city across the UK. I am witnessing and sensing the impact of changing attitudes towards not only memorising the Qur’an but also Living the Qur’an; an ongoing blessing for which I feel extremely grateful.”
It was revealed to our beloved Prophet (SAW) who is the last Prophet of Allah Almighty. The Qur'an is the Divine book towards which Muslims turn when there is any problem because the Qur'an has the solution to every problem and it is guidance for every aspect of life.
Our beloved Prophet (SAW) said: “Verily the one who recites The Qur'an beautifully, smoothly and precisely, he will be in the company of the noble and obedient angels.
To read, understand and teach the Qur'an are all virtuous (rewarding) deeds. The Qur'an is a Divine Book that guides us towards righteousness and morality.
You may not understand or remember everything when you read the Qur'an, but you will feel a change. That is the work of Allah in our lives, reading The Qur'an cleanses the heart.
Sūrah al-Kauthar is the shortest Surah in the Qur'an. It has 10 words and 42 letters. You can read it in less than 20 seconds (1/3 of a minute), and for that, you receive 420 rewards from Allah.
