Image result for fresh flowers and Quran

The People of the Qur'aan are known for their beautiful, noble characteristics. It is beautiful recitation, memorization, pondering and application. The Speech of Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى is the BEST Speech in the world. Those who busy themselves upholding the Speech of Allaah necessitates that they be known for good character and mannerism as mentioned by Imaam Aajuri (رحمه الله) has mentioned. By upholding these characteristics one will gain complete happiness in this world and the world Hereafter.

The beholder of the Qur'aan conducts himself to that which Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى and His Messenger صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم call to. This is the one who will have true happiness. Happiness is not obtained in material things though the Kuffaar try to make us belief that it is so. If we take a close look at all these noble characteristics, we will notice that all of this has to do with our relationship with our Creator and creation --- i.e., how we should conduct ourselves with Allaah (our correct understanding of Him سُبحانه وتعالى) and with each other. 

From the characteristics that is necessary for the beholder of the Qur'aan is that he controls his anger

The example of the believer who recites the Qur’âan...

Image result for Quran


In the two Authentic Books on the authority of Abu Musa from the Prophet (صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم)

مَثَلُ الْمُؤْمِنِ الَّذِي يَقْرَأُ الْقُرْآنَ كَمَثَلِ الأُتْرُجَّة طَعْمُها طَيِّبٌ وَ رِيْحُها طَيِّبٌ ، وَ مَثَلُ الْمُؤْمِنِ الَّذِي لَا يَقْرَأُ الْقُرْآنَ كَمَثَلِ التَّمْرَةِ طَعْمُها طَيِّبٌ وَ  لَا رِيْحَ لَهَا، وَ مَثَلُ الْمُنَافِقِ الَّذِي يَقْرَأُ الْقُرْآنَ كَمَثَلِ الرَّيْحَانَة رِيْحُها طَيِّبٌ وَ لَا طَعْمَ لَهَا، وَمَثَلُ الْمُنَافِقِ الَّذِي لَا يَقْرَأُ الْقُرْآنَ كَمَثَلِ الْحَنْظَلَةِ طَعْمُهَا مُرٌّ وَ لَا رِيْحَ لَهَا

The example of the believer who recites the Qur’âan is like the example of a citron, its taste and smell is good. The example of the believer who doesn't recite the Qur’âan  is like the example of a date-fruit; its taste is good without having any smell to it. The example of the hypocrite who recites the Qur’âan  is like the example of sweet basil, it smells good and its taste is bitter. The example of the hypocrite who doesn’t recite the Qur’âan is like the example of colocynth, its taste is bitter with no smell to it.” 

(Bukhâri & Muslim)

Humility a strange thing...

 

 
ادْعُواْ رَبَّكُمْ تَضَرُّعًا وَخُفْيَةً إِنَّهُ لاَ يُحِبُّ الْمُعْتَدِينَ
“Invoke your Lord with humility & in secret. He likes not the aggressors.”
(Al-A'raf 7:55)

وَعِبَادُ الرَّحْمَنِ الَّذِينَ يَمْشُونَ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ هَوْنًا وَإِذَا خَاطَبَهُمُ الْجَاهِلُونَ قَالُوا سَلَامًا
"And the slaves of the Most Beneficent (Allâh) are those who walk on the earth in humility & sedateness, & when the foolish address them (with bad words) they reply back with mild words of gentleness."
(Al-Furqan 25:63)

... contd..

From the negative descriptions that a person should be free from is that they should not display arrogance and arrogant behaviour towards anyone. They should not be overbearing, presumptuous, boastful, haughty and treating others unjustly. All these traits negates humbleness.

Anas رضي اللّه عنـه  narrated that the Messenger of Allaahصلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم  said:

'Humble yourselves so that you won't boast. The one who boasts will be a party against another nor should he display arrogant behaviour to someone else.'
(Bukhari)

From the characteristics that the beholder of the Qur'aan should free himself from is that they should not have 'bad thoughts about anyone) - (soo ad-dhan) except for someone who deserves it i.e. their situation is clear. Other than that, we should have good thought of our brothers and sisters in Islaam.

Image result for Qur'an
From the characteristics of the beholders of the Qur'aan {Hamalatul Qur'aan - حَمَلَةُ القُرْان} should have is that they should NOT be known for a lot of laughter. Imaam Aajuri - آجُرِّي (رحمه الله) mentioned that he should be known for laughing a little. It has been confirmed that the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم would laugh in particular situations but he did not do this in abundance.  

Abu Huraira رضي اللّه عنـه reported: The Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said,

Do not laugh too much. Verily, too much laughter will harden the heart.
(Sunan Ibn Mājah 4193 - saheeh according to al-Albani)

 The next characteristic Aajuri (رحمه الله) mentioned is that the person should NOT be amazed at his capabilities. They should not praise themselves concerning that which Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى has blessed and bestowed upon him. This could be knowledge, wealth, skills, his ability to recite the Qur'aan, the quantity he has memorized.

*** ...(Conclusion of the 2nd Lesson)

Characteristics that will cause us to desire and crave to be from the People of the Qur'aan - (حَمَلَةُ القُرْان) & those whom Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى  has praised

A few ahadith that will aid us to increase our humility and make us yearn to be from among the People of the Qur'aan:

The First Hadith:

Uthman ibnAffan رضي اللّه عنـه   narrated that the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم  said:

  "‏ خَيْرُكُمْ مَنْ تَعَلَّمَ الْقُرْآنَ وَعَلَّمَهُ ‏"

'The BEST of you are those who study the Qur'aan (learn) & then teach it."
(Bukhari)

- Sheikh Al-Bani (رحمه الله) said concerning this hadith in as-Silsilah as-Saheehah: 

"This indicates to the studying of the Qur'aan and the BEST  teachers are those who teach the Qur'aan."

-- There are many types of sciences that are taught but the BEST teachers are those that teach the Qur'aan.

“But I Don’t Have Time for the Qur'aan..!"
