Do Not Over Stress Your Mind

Only memorize a bit less than your comfort level and don’t push yourself too much. That way you will end up not retaining the knowledge. 

Keep Repeating The Verses You Learn

Repetition is the key to memorizing Quran. The verses you learn daily, you should repeat all the time, throughout the day. This way they get committed to memory. 

Utilize New Verses In Namaaz

The 5 times mandatory prayer is a great help in memorizing Quran. Recite the newly memorized verses in Salah to commit them to memory.

Our Mission in Light of Hadith

In the words of The Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), “God, His Angels and  all those in Heavens and Earth, even ants in their hills and fish in the water, call down blessings on those who instruct others in beneficial knowledge”.

Attainment of Inner Peace: How Do Islam and Quran Help? 

Inner Peace

Inner peace is a blissful state of mind in which the person is completely at peace, physically and spirituality, with everything around him and himself. The last part of the previous sentence is the essence of achieving inner peace. Only someone who is completely content with himself can achieve the state of mind that is inner peace.

Islam and Inner Peace

Islam is a complete Deen that not only dictates the afterlife but aptly explains the ways of this world. If followed, it has the potential to bring inner peace to all who seek for it. The concept of inner peace in Islam is so deep-rooted that it reflects clearly in Muslims’ greetings. As-Salam-Alaikum translates to “may Allah SWT bless you with peace”. 

Inner Peace Through Learning Quran

What better way could there be to achieve inner peace than to attain closeness to The Creator Allah SWT. The easiest and best method to do that is to learn Quran and implement its teachings in one’s daily life. With the advent of technology, it is now easier than ever to learn Quran Arabic online or learning to recite Quran with Tajweed and properly. There is not even a language barrier anymore as you can get Quran classes in English, the most widely spoken language out there. Any local scholar can suffice as your Quran teacher but for a truly remarkable experience, it is suggested to find a Quran teacher

teacher who is well-versed in Arabic language. 

It is not completely wrong to say that to learn Quran is to attain inner peace but not completely correct as well. The reason for this is that, just learning it can only take you so far while applying it in your daily life is what propels you to lifelong prosperity. 

Inner Peace Through Remembrance of Allah SWT

Performing zikr and always having the name of Allah SWT on your tongue can go a long way in your quest for inner peace. Verily in the remembrance of our Creator lies in road to salvation and serenity. 

Inner Peace Through Service of Others 

Helping others carries with it a great level of mental satisfaction that is hard to put in to words. With Islam, along with mental satisfaction it also brings a high level of spiritual satisfaction. This is because the Deen of Islam gives great importance to service of others. The word ‘others’ here refers not only to human beings but also all living things. Everything that is a creation of God Almighty deserves love and respect.

Being good to others is rewarded by Allah SWT with tranquility and peace. 

Inner Peace Through Studying Islam’s history

Islam is as old as the world itself. When Prophet Adam AS came to Earth, he brought with him the Deen of Allah SWT. It was formally shaped into Islam with the coming of Prophet Muhammad PBUH. Throughout Islam’s history, one finds exemplary behavior of the Prophets PBUH and the Sahaba RA. If one studies their lives, he finds that they were most at peace with themselves. 

A formal education of Islamic Studies can enlighten a man 10 folds in the art of achieving inner peace. Such courses are easily available online for meagre fee or even obtain free trials and proceed further accordingly. 

الشمسُ تُداعب النهر

الغروب وانغماس الشمس في الماء من أجل المشاهد الرومانسية التي قد تراها عيناك وأنت في حالة تأمل مع النفس وفي حالة صمت وتفكير عميق بين الحاضر والمستقبل

دعنا نتفق إلى أننا لن نتطرق إلى التفكير في الماضي حيث أن ذكرياته الحلوة و المُرَّة لن تعود مرة أخرى لذا فنحن هنا مع أشعة الشمس الحارّة نوعا ما والنهر والشجر وعليل الهواء النقي الذي يتخلل ثيابك وأنفاسك

ألق نظرة إلى النهر ستجد مراكب باهظة الثمن يملؤها الصخب والضجيج وأخرى بسيطة من خشب يملؤها السلام والهدوء والابتسماة السمراء التي تلونت جراء تعرضها اليومي لأشعة الشمس فأكسبها اللون الأسمر اللامع

لون الماء السماوي أو المائل إلى الزرقة المختلطة بشفافية الماء مع اللون الذهبي لأشعة الشمس والمزيج الأخضر المريح للأعصاب من الزرعات والشجيرات والنباتات والصبارات يضفي للجلسة معنى عميق ممتع وخلَّاب

من فترة لأخرى نحتاج لجلسة هادئة صامتة مع النفس كي نفكر بعمق وارتياح من ضغوطات الحياة ومتاعبها وأشغالها ، الملفت للنظر أن الكثير يأتون لالتقاط الصور وانشغوا عن روعة المنظر الذي يحتاج إلى تأمل فقط

الشمس تعانق النهر في نهاية اليوم وتغوص يه بينما تحرسه الأشجار وهي هادئة مستكينة مظللة علي النهر بظلها ورائحتها العطرة ، ليت كل ما يتعلق بالطبيعة يظل دون مال ، استثمار الأماكن ذات المناظر الخلابة ماديا لإنشاء مقهى أو مطعم يدر ملايين الأموال يُفقد الطبيعة جمالها البكر الخلّاب

Review for online tuition platform

I started learning the Quran at Al Madinah in Quran institute with a Quran teacher was from Pakistan but she was speaking Arabic fluently because of her living among Arabic community.

After that i moved to another Quran institute because we moved to a new home so my parents searched for another institute to be closer to me because i was going to the Quran institute on my foot “Walking” so i moved to a new Quran teacher .

Then we moved to mecca Makkah” because of my dad’s job so i left the institute and my friends and the teacher too.

After a year i moved to Cairo in Egypt and started studying hard so i stopped having Quran classes , when i started studying at the university and having assignments in my collage i realized that i must resume my Quran classes again so i joined the Masjid closer to me

After i finished my Bachelor studying i decided to join the Online platform to continue my Quran memorization and not having any barriers to stop my learning progress again so i joined the online Quran classes Professional academies plus of Free online tuition platforms and paid online classes .

My review after i had experiences with all that online institute i found that the paid Quran classes online is the best as your progress is on the way that you planned , you learn everything systematical with professional way plus of this your online lesson take a place wherever you or the tutor are because online classes break and beat the barriers of travelling not having a qualified tutors or you live in a country hasn’t a mosque closer to you

or the Free teacher has limited availability and this availability doesn’t fitting your time and studying.

So the Free online Quran classes is good but not fitting who want the improvement and progress of their tuition plan go on to get their goal in short term

Paid online Quran classes saving you money and your time improve your level in short term as you have systematical progress so when you compare the free with paid you find that the big deal is paid because of the free you are wasting time to find a great and qualified tutor , teacher might reject your joining to his group when it exceeded and you don’t have the option to choose the day and time .

Once i joined my online Quran lessons and i paid the money i got my Ijazah and memorized Al Jazaryyah plus studied all Tajweed rules as a professional have a great chance to have my classes in different countries like Malaysia, Thailand and Cairo so i don’t have the worries that my classes might stop or i’m gonna miss out any of my learning session as i can have anywhere once i have the internet .

Sinai and worshiping of Moses

its back to last year 2018 when i was riding a bus to visit sharm-El-shiekh for vacation and i found my heart feeling a spirituality and i felt i’m inside something so holey then i checked google map to see where am i, i found myself closer to Gabal A’ Tour “mountain of tor Sinai” which Moses peace be upon him spoken to Allah and received the ten commands .

At that time i realized why i felt this holiness in my heart it is the same feeling when i visited the city of prophet Mohammed “Al Madinah”.

By Taking a look at the mountains there they have characteristics made them unique

the summits have jagged peaks and sharp and look like your palms in supplication mode , the mountain have many light colors such as red , green ,orange, they close or to each other.

Sinai contains the history of Moses’s worshiping and prayers and until moment Media not focused on this or mention to Moses and how he was praying and doing camping in the desert and how eating …etc, the place in Sinai in Egypt Just a desert hot in the summer so its moderate weather at October to April .

This one of the rocks there look like Mashroum so Baudouin named it Mashroum Rock.

When i checked the place its not contain a water or trees it contains just mountains so when i was do a meditation there i was thinking that Allah wants him”Moses” to reflect and not being busy of anything just praying and supplicate to Allah .

Otherwise, When i have been in Al Madinah at Saudi Arabia i found the same palms and desert same for mecca nothing can attract your eyes so your heart get busy with , you stay attracted and engaged with the Kabbah and the mosque so you do your supplicate reading Quran without interruptions.

I took the decision to visit Dahab this year which is in Sinai too which contains Moses well, which can cure many disease.

I picked a picture of this plant which is so sharp it hurt my hand because of jagged plants in it everything in Sinai desert is tough so Moses went there to not to get busy from his Lord .

على جثتي أحفظ الجزرية!

في أحد الأيام كنت أجلس تحت عامود جسر الطواف المؤقت الذي تم بناؤه أثناء توسعة الحرم المكي في عهد الملك عبد الله رحمه الله وكنت أطالع بعيني الكعبة والطائفين حولها وأخذت أنظر إلى الأعمدة المجاورة لي و أخذت أفكر لو أنني يوما ما أردت تعليم طلاب القرآن هنا في الحرم المكي فيجب عليَّ أن أحفظ أبيات الجزرية وأدرس بتعمق لكي أنال عاموداً للتعليم، وفوراً قلت لنفسي :لا، “على جثتي” أن أحفظ أو حتى أدرس الجزرية ” ماهذا الهُراء؟! أكان ذلك من متطلبات الإجازة في عهد الرسول محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم : بالطبع لا ”

هذا ما جال بخاطري في عام 2014 وكنت قد تركت عملي للتو بالصحافة و متعمقة في التفكير بما يجب ومالا يجب .

ولم أكن خاتمة بعد للقرآن في ذلك الوقت وكانت هذه خواطر مشاغبة كما أسميها لتلميذة متميزة ولكنها مشاغبة

، ويشاء الله أن أختم القرآن في 2016 ، المهم لم أكن أعلم أن الأيام ستدور ويأتي اليوم الذي أبحث أنا بنفسي عن المعهد المتخصص في دراسة الجزرية وعلم التجويد باستفاضة وكان هذا في عام 2017

بدأت قصتي خلال استقلالي للحافلة للتوجه إلى محافظة جدة والتي تبعد عن مكة بحوالي ساعة ونصف الساعة وخلال سيرنا في الطريق جاءتني رسالة واتس آب على هاتفي الجوال وكان محتواها : يعلن معهد الدراسات القرآنية عن بدء التقديم للدورات القرآنية الأتية لمن تريد أن تؤدي زكاة علمها وتتقن تعليم القرآن حيث ستدرس الطالبة التجويد، الجزرية، تحفة الأطفال، مراجعة القرآن مرتين خلال الدورة ودراسة رواية شعبة .

لا أخفي سراً كنت سأقوم بإجبار السائق لتغيير طريق الحافلة والعودة بنا إلى مكة مرة أخرى لألحق بموعد التقديم خاصة وأني تسلمت الرسالة وأنا عند نهاية حد الحرم .

تمالكت نفسي واتصلت بالمعهد لكي أتحدث مع أحد المسؤلين لكي استعلم عن ما إن كان لدي متسع من الوقت أم لا وخاصة أني لم أكن أملك شهادة تثبت أني خاتمة للقرآن الكريم وهو ما جعلني أشعر أني في مأزق، اتصلت بالمعهد وكان نص المحادثة الهاتفية كالتالي:

أنا : السلام عليكم ..ألووو

إدارة المعهد : وعليكم السلام:

أنا : لو سمحت كنت حابة أعرف إذا كان ممكن أتقدم لدورة تأهيل الإجازة في المعهد وأنا مش معايا شهادة تثبت أني خاتمة القرآن .

إدارة المعهد: خذي رقم التحويلة وتحدثي إلى الشيخة شيماء غبار وستخبرك بالمطلوب لأنها المسؤلة عن قسم الإجازات في المعهد

أنا : حاضر

قمت باستخدام رقم التحويلة وكانت معي أ/ شيماء

أنا : السلام عليكم ، هل ممكن أقجم في الدورة وأنا معيش إثبات وخايفة آجي أقدم متقبلونيش

أ/شيماء: ابتسمت وقالت: ما أنت لو فضلتِ في البيت مش هنقبلك، تعالي بكرة الساعة 8 أعملك اختبار قبول وإن شاء اللخ خير لا تقلقي.

انتهت المحادثة الهاتفية وأنا في قمة السعادة لأني استنتجت من حديثها أني سيتم قبولي وبالفعل توجهت صباحاً للمعهد بصحبة والدتي حفظها الله وطلبت منها أن تدعو لي بالقبول وقبلت يدها وصعدت الأدراج وكانت السابعة وأربعين دقيقة وكنت أرتدي فستاناً كحلي اللون وأبدو كطالبة في الثانوي، جاءت المعلمة شيماء وبصحبتها معلمة أخرى وهي أ/نسرين الناقوري رحبوا بي وقالوا لي انتظرينا خمس دقائق وسنبدأ امتحان القبول.

نادت علي المعلمة وبدأت بالتلاوة نظر من المصحف وذلك بسبب تفلت الحفظ مني لعدم مراجعته ، وسألتني عن بعض أحكام التجويد وكانت التلاوة من سورة مريم وهي من السور المفضلة لديّ.

أخبرتني بأنه تم قبولي فمستوى قراءتي يؤهلني للالتحاق بدورة التأهيل للأجازة وكانت سعيدة جداً وأنا أيضاً وقالت لي :”هتدرسي معانا رواية شعبة” وبدا على وجهي علامات الاستفهام لأني لم أكن أعلم أي شيء عنها.

ثم نظرت المعلمة إلى المعلمة الأخرى وقالت لها : ولا ايه رأيك ندخلها في دورة القراءات العشرة كمان , ثم نظرت إليّ ا/شيماء وقالت لي : الأفضل تبدأي بهذه الدورة وبعد كده إن شاء الله تكملي عشان منثقلش عليك وأعطتني ورقة مكتوب فيها “تم قبول الطالبة : نهال أحمد محمود مصطفى”

كنت كالفراشة أطير من الفرحة لكن سرعان ما سألتها ماذا إن عدت إلى مصر ولم أتمكن من استكمال الدورة ابتسمت وقالت لي لا تقلقي لدينا هذه الدورة عن بعد ، هرعت إلى أمي راكضة على سلالم الأدوار الأربعة وحضنتها وقلت لها : قبلوني ، كانت أمي في غاية الفخر بي والسعادة من أجلي.

Bilal

My curiosity pushes me to watch the movie on Saudi Airlines flight from Cairo to Jeddah
I knew that Bilal is the caller’s of prophet Muhammad peace be upon him but at this moment i thought the title of the movie just took the same name but it’s not the biography of Bilal .
Once i played the movie and i see a huge cube i realized it is Bilal the caller of the prayers ,But unfortunately the story which is written by the author wasn’t including the truly facts about hid biography.
My review about that movie is its awesome in the graphics and the story without considering this is a historical Islamic story. 
Unfortunately i wished if the story said the truth , the author ignored totally mentioning the prophet Muhammad and mention the Islam and the new preaching to Islam as it’s a revelation against the unjustified and to stop worship the idols which are not hear or harm .


Otherwise, 
The author was in love with the Islamic history and Arabic civilization because he used the same names at this era like ummayyah, saffwan, Abu bakr ,Hamza etc,,, except prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.
From the other hand, the author was unfair not just to mention that the revolution for enlighten the hearts of people to not be slave to any one neither in religion nor in ownership, as Bilal was black skinned and he was a slave of ummayyah, and when the prophet preached people to Islam to make the free from slavery and to worship one God. 
The other note i paid attention to it , the movie doesn’t mention to the name of Medinah it just says (the great city) and this city is the city of the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.
Mecca mentioned a couple of times only without referring to it as the huge cube built in mecca built by prophet Ibrahim and his son Ismael peace be upon them. 
The author wrote the scenario with intending to ignore and remove facts from the true story and from the history of the Arabic .

when we study the Quran and the Islamic history or Islamic stories of the messengers and prophets that make us aware to avoid that kind of movies and able to produce accurate fils or documents to reply the lies in this movies.

The importance of studding the Islamic studies that we know more about our religion and we learn from this how to handle the difficulties in our life and to be more aware.

This why Quran Recital is offering online Lessons and classes for Islamic studies for kids to build their Islamic knowledge and to protect them from deceiving and manipulation media.

No Compulsion

Al-Baquera (the Cow) verse 256 it says “There shall be no compulsion in religion;” in words, or by force. Muslims should not proselytize. Muslims should behave in a way that attracts others by radiating the kindness and peace within. I don’t often see or speak the words “no compulsion,” so I want to give a straight definition of what this means.

I found this at Google: compulsion definition. Google tells me there’s two different meanings for compulsion. The first: the action or state of forcing or being forced to do something; constraint. The second: an irresistible urge to behave in a certain way, especially against one’s conscious wishes.

After reading that, I think about the phrases “nobody likes to be pushed around,” and “nobody likes to be told what to do.” It’s true. Bossy know it all personalities repulse people by their behavior. That’s something no Muslim will do.

A Muslim will not use physical force to bend someone’s arm, nor would a Muslim use subversion or intimidation to convince someone to move his arm. A Muslim would not use false kindness or emotional manipulation either.

These thoughts might seem overwhelming, and bring you to question how you should behave. You should be yourself, and let your peace shine through because God does not like deceit, and a hardened heart always reveals itself.
