“The month of Ramadan is the one in which the Qur’an was sent down, a guidance for mankind, clear proofs for the guidance, the Criterion; so whoever amongst you witnesses this month, let him fast it.” (cf. Surah al-Baqarah 2:185)
The holy month of Ramadhan is just one week away.
In this blessed month, Muslims will fast and spend a great deal of time in prayers and reciting the Qur’an.
I wish to invite everyone here to also spend a bit of time during this coming month of Ramadhan to learn about the Qur’an.
You can download a free copy of the Qur’an in pdf format here.
And for those who may be interested in actually listening to the recitation of the Qur’an in it’s original language, here is a freeware program which offers a simultaneous English translation of the Qur’an to read while listening to the Arabic recitation.
If you listen to the recitation of the Qur’an in it’s original language, perhaps you might then discover why it has such a great emotional impact on those who believe.
And it offers all 3 i.e. Pickthal, Yusuf Ali and Shakir English translations to choose from.
After you have installed the program on your computer, you then need to download the MP3 audio files.
For all who are keen to learn the Qur’an, I highly recommend that you click on all 3 links above to download these fabulous free programs.
