To be read over and over again

“Verily, We have sent it down as an Arabic Quran in order that you may understand.” (12:2)

Imam Mawdudi wrote about the above ayah:

“The word “Quran” is a derivative of the Arabic verb qara’a meaning “he read”. The appellation “Quran” with reference to a book suggests that it is something that is meant to be read or recited over and over again by all, by the elite and commoners alike.”

I started reciting surah Yusuf yesterday (as part of my Quran Challenge) and this little note at the bottom of my translation mus’haf caught my attention. It’s not a very descriptive analogy, yet the simplicity explains the relevance of reciting the Quran regularly. I loved it, so I thought I’d share it with you too!
