Importance of understanding Quran

Muslims believe Quran to be the word of Allah. the most important reason to read and understand Quran with meaning is that it’s the word and guidance from Allah to mankind. When we work in a office we have to follow the rules and regulations of the company, same is the case with Quran. We are the creation and we must follow the rules and regulations laid down by the Creator.
In order to do that we need to follow Quran since it is the only divine book in its original form. After realizing this extremely crucial fact in our heart, we may not need to remind ourselves the importance to hold on to Allah’s book and to seek the ultimate guidance from it. Allah states that anyone who truly believes that there is a life after this life (al-aakhira) also believes in this book. Allah mentions in Quran:

“Indeed, this Qur’an leads on to an appropriate and secure path. It gives the good news to those who perform righteous deeds, that theirs is a great reward! And We have prepared a painful punishment for those who do not believe in the afterlife.”

The Holy Quran, Chapter 17, Verse 9 & 10

Allah has mentioned on numerous times the importance to follow Quran, therefore we should make Quran recitation a permanent habit in our lives. The only success in this world and hereafter is this Book of Allah. Allah says in another place in Quran:

“These people have refused to accept the advice, (the Qur’an), when it came to them, (though) it is definitely a mighty book! Falsehood can neither confront it head on, nor approach it (stealthily) from behind. (It is) a revelation from the Wise, the One Worthy of praise.

The Holy Quran, Chapter 41, Verse 41 & 42

We Muslims must understand and learn Quran, it is our duty to spread the word of Allah.
