Quran subject matter is vast and comprehensive

Quran Is The Way To Get Satisfaction

The Glorious Quran is the pure word of God. There is not a single word therein that is not divine. It is a truth universally acknowledged that one day this world will come to an end and all will turn into ash and dust. This life of luxury that we lead today is only momentary compared to the one that awaits us in the Hereafter. Yet we continue to race against time in the false hopes of finding the utmost happiness and satisfaction. Allah the one who creates knows the source of happiness and has revealed in His book of divinity as Allah says:

قُلْ يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ تَعَالَوْا إِلَىٰ كَلِمَةٍ سَوَاءٍ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَكُمْ أَلَّا نَعْبُدَ إِلَّا اللَّهَ وَلَا نُشْرِكَ بِهِ شَيْئًا وَلَا يَتَّخِذَ بَعْضُنَا بَعْضًا أَرْبَابًا مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ فَإِن تَوَلَّوْا فَقُولُوا اشْهَدُوا بِأَنَّا مُسْلِمُونَ

“O People (of) the Book! Come to a word equitable between us and between you – that not we worship except Allah, and not we associate partners with Him – anything and not take some of us (to) others (as) lords besides Allah.” Then if they turn away, then say, “Bear witness that we (are) those-who-submit/Muslims.” (Surah Al-Imran 3:64)

Despite the world, at our fingertips, one always feels dissatisfied. The world is not a perfect place of satisfaction because a day will come when every worldly lavishness and attraction will perish into dust and ashes. We, humans, are in a whim that just one more day and we will be close to our happiness but the Islamic narratives have refuted this argument with the counter authentic rationale that states: Allah says:

الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُم بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ 

“Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah. Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah’s hearts are assured.” (Surah Ar-Ra’d 13:28)

Humans seek satisfaction.  We all need food, shelter, clothing, friendship, love, peace, and happiness. We spend our days pursuing things that we hope will make us satisfied. In our globalized world, it’s easier than ever for you to find exactly what you’re looking for. We live in a time of instant gratification and instant satisfaction. Allah created humans and He created the Holy Quran. It is only fitting that only the word of Allah can comfort the heart of His creation.

Here are some is the way to get satisfaction with the Reciting of the Holy Quran:

وَهَٰذَا كِتَابٌ أَنزَلْنَاهُ مُبَارَكٌ فَاتَّبِعُوهُ وَاتَّقُوا لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ 

“And this is a Book which We have revealed as a blessing: so follow it and be righteous, that ye may receive mercy.” (Sarah-Anam, 6:155)

Reciting Holy Quran is the best way to gain Allah’s interest. It has been set important by Allah Almighty for the Muslims for the Success. Blessed Book was uncovered in Arabic, we ought to know the interpretation to follow up on it however to the extent perusing is concerned.

QURAN – The ultimate road to satisfaction:

  • Quran leads to Paradise: Recitation of the Holy Quran leads to paradise. In the Holy Quran, it states in these words.
  • Cleansing Of Heart: Quran being a Heavenly Book is not merely words, rather the Quran has a direct influence on the heart of the reader or the listener.
  • Satan’s Distractions: Satan vowed to become man’s worst enemy since the day he got shunned. He works tirelessly to lead a man astray and keep him engaged in worldly distractions. The Quran speaks about Satan’s motive to distract a person from the right path. The Quran commands, “And if an evil suggestion comes to you from Satan, then seek refuge in Allah. Indeed, He is Hearing and Knowing.” (Quran 7:200)
  • Achieving Inner Comfort: Inner peace and comfort are directly associated with dhikar. The more time one spends in the remembrance of Allah, the stronger his connection to the Almighty and the more content is his heart. The world is full of death, destruction, and depression. Allah commands us to perform Salah and repent for our past sins for Allah is the Most Merciful.
  • Allah’s Acceptance in our Hearts: For a true Muslim, wealth means satisfaction of the heart. Accepting the reality of this world and faith in Allah’s commandments are what will distinguish a believer from a non-believer.
  • Recitation of the Quran; the Ultimate Cure for Ailment: Recitation of the Holy Quran calms the heart and alleviates anxiety.“Quran is a remedy for Illnesses of the mind.” [Bukhari] The Quran cleanses the mind of impure thoughts and sets the course for the path to righteousness.

الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُم بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ 

“The heavens and the earth cannot contain Me, but the heart of a true believer can. Allah also tells us in the Quran: Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah’s hearts are assured.” (Surah Ar-Ra’d,13:28)

It is a book full of miracles that no single human being can fully grasp. One of the miracles of the Quran is that it throws a challenge that if the entire creation of humans and jinn pulled forces together, they can’t come up with something close to the shortest of all chapters of the Quran. No one person or group has been able to refute this challenge in the last 1400 years! Allah says,

قُل لَّئِنِ اجْتَمَعَتِ الْإِنسُ وَالْجِنُّ عَلَىٰ أَن يَأْتُوا بِمِثْلِ هَٰذَا الْقُرْآنِ لَا يَأْتُونَ بِمِثْلِهِ وَلَوْ كَانَ بَعْضُهُمْ لِبَعْضٍ ظَهِيرًا 

”Say, ‘if mankind and the jinn gathered in order to produce the like of this Quran, they could not produce the like of it, even if they were each other’s assistants.” (Surah Al-Isra 17:88)

The Quran is the final and definitive message of Allah to his creations. Muslim to reflect and contemplate upon every verse in the Quran and to adhere to it in all matters of life. It is the book of answers-answers that man seeks in this bundle of complications called life. Things might not be complicated after all if we embrace the Quran with all the sincerity due to it.

Allah Almighty says in The Holy Quran:

  • “By the Qur’an, full of Wisdom.” (Surah Yasin, 2)
  • “It is He Who has taught the Qur’an.” (Surah Ar-Rahman, 2)
  • “But remind by the Quran whoever fears my threat.” (Qaf 50:45)
  • “We have not neglected in the Register a thing.”  (Al-Anam 6:38)
  • “And he swore to them both, that he was their sincere adviser.” (Surah Al-Araf, 21)
  • “(So also on such) as have made Qur’an into shreds (as they please).” (Surah Al-Hijr, 91)
  • “We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur’an, in order that ye may learn wisdom.” (Surah Yusuf, 2)
  • “And we send down of the Quran that which is healing and mercy for the believers.” (Al-Isra 17:82)
  • “Indeed the Quran guides to that which is most suitable and gives good tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that they will have a great reward.” (Quran: 17:9)
  • “When thou dost read the Qur’an, seek Allah.s protection from Satan the rejected one.” (Surah An-Nahl, 98)
  • “This is the book about which there is no doubt, guidance for those conscious of Allah.” (Al-Baqrah 2:2)

The Qur’an tells us about what happened before and what is yet to come and it is a reference for judging between us.  It’s the true guide for humanity; it teaches everyone how to lead a good life, avoid alcohol so that you can concentrate on Allah, how to respect people. Allah says:

وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا وَاذْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنتُمْ أَعْدَاءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُم بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْوَانًا

“Hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided. Remember the favour of Allah upon you, when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became brothers by his favour.” (Surat Ali Imran 3:103)

We must slow down our never-ending pursuit of worldly things and start today to increase the time we read, study, learn, and understand the Quran so that we can know Allah (SWT). We should try to do it with as much focus and energy as we put into pursuing our worldly needs. If we do this, Inshaa Allah our hearts will fill with Allah (SWT) alone, and we’ll finally feel satisfied.
