Assalamualaikum, I have 3 questions and it would be really helpful for me if I can know the answers:) 1) are we allowed to read the Quran silently? 2)do we have to cover oursleves with hijab while reading Quran, eventho we're in our home? 3)is crying break our fast/lessen our fast value? jazakAllah bikhair:)
1.) When you read Qur’an, angels come down to hear you. So if you can read not loud enough to annoy others- but not completely silet that would be best.
2.) It is best you cover up out of respect, but there are no sources stating it as a requirement,
3.) No, it doesn’t break your fast or lessen it’s value. Fasting should help you though, in directing whatever is burdening your heart to Allah (swt). So if there is something that leads you to crying, cry to Allah (swt) about it and inshaa’Allah He will ease it for you.
Have a blessed month!
And never think that Allah is unaware of what the oppressors do. He only delays them for a Day when eyes will stare in horror. [14:42]
This verse isn’t just directed towards oppressors like Bashar or Israel, but every single human being out their that has been mentally/physically abused, held against their will, tortured, and compelled to other horrendous life situations. Though it may seem hopeless now, there will come a day where they will be able to look at the one(s) who opressed them in any way, and watch as every fiber of their being is shaking in fear as Ar-Rahman questions them about their actions.
Our blog was acting up for a while, however we fixed it and it’s up and running again! Alhamdullilah.
“For verily Allâh is with those who do right.” [29:69]
Becoming closer to Allah in this life is a battle between you and this world. This is especially common amongst reverts and sisters who start hijab. In this verse, Allah (swt) tells us that the path to Him doesn’t have to be lonely. It’s unique because Allah’s not saying He’s near or we have to call to Him, instead He says that He is undoubtedly with us. So pray on, fast on, and move forward in your deen because your teammate is the Creator of the heavens and the earth.
The most important part of this month is not to do as many good deeds as we can, but to do as many impacting deeds as we can. Deeds that impact our families, our friends, strangers, but most importantly- ourselves.
