Yes, the Quran.
The most important book in our lives.
So why is it that in most households, the newspapers get read more often than the Quran?
It’s true, you know. Ask a person to tell you the latest news and then ask him/her to summarise Surah Al-Ankabut and the lessons found therein….
So, what do we do?
Do we moan and groan?
No, we don’t. We first read the following great article and then we take action ASAP. [Oh and we also start a Quran Journal.]
Keeping a Daily Relationship with the Quran by Productive Muslim
He starts off by destroying all our excuses and then proceeds to give us some useful advice. Good stuff.
[Full disclosure: If you google “Quran Journal”, the first link that shows up is an article on how and why to keep a Quran Journal. Did I rip the idea off from that article? No, I did not. I had a Quran journal long before I found that article and I don’t believe in plagiarism.
However, I think I did steal the term “Quran Journal” from that article. I used to call mine a “Quran notebook”. Notebook sounded too school-girlish. Journal sounds very professional so….I stole the name.]
Okay, what is a Quran Journal? Short Answer: Whatever you want it to be.
