Untuk anggota Quranic Enlightenment
From Ubadah bin Ash Shamit, RasuluLlah SAW said :
“There came to you Ramadhan, bulan blessing month, Allah visit you in this month with HIS mercy, erase all sins and granting your pray. Allah SWT see you all of you come to HIM in this Ramadhan Kareem and flaunt you to HIS angels, then show to Allah SWT your good deeds . Because the sufferer are who doesn’t get ALLAH SWT’s blessing in this month” (HR.Ath-Thabrani, and the conveys reliable).
Al-Mundziri reported that : from “ An-Nasa’i dan Al-Baihaqi, both from Abu Qilabah, from Abu Hurairah, but as I know never heard from him.”
Time goes on in month of Ramadhan, have we really belief in the glory of Ramadhan ? Ramadhan is month of Quran as Allah SWT said:
شهر رمضان الذى أنزل فيه القرءان هدى الناس و بينت من الهدى و الفرقان فمن شهد منكم الشهر فليصمه ومن كان مريضا أو على سفر فعدّة من أيّام أخر يريد الله بكم اليسر ولا يريد بكم العسر ولتكملوا العدّة ولتكبّروا الله على ما هدى كم و لعلّكم تشكرون
Ramadan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur’an, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting, but if any one is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed period (should be made up) by days later. God intends every facility for you; He does not want to put to difficulties. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period, and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful. (Al Baqarah : 185)
The Glory of Quran is in everything related to Al Quran itself : recite It, listen to It, commit to memory It, contemplate It, practice It, etc. Every activities related to Al- Quran bringing a reward from Allah SWT. Beside, The Glory of Quran is in Its function, as kitaabul Hidayah ( Guidance book).
Reported by Sa’id bin Jubair that Ibnu Abbas ra said, ”Al-Qur’an sent down in Ramadhan ( completely) from Lauh Mahfud toward world heaven then it was put in Baitul ’Izzah (house of glory). After that
Al-Qur’an was sent (continously ) to Rasulullah SAW, during 23 years to solve human life”
After we know the glory of Al Quran, better we should fill up the days in Ramadhan with Al Quran. Ya Rabb, please let us be Your beloved servant …
