Beauty and Perfection of the Quran
The Holy Quran is the esteemed book of Allah. Quranic composition remains unchallenged in its beauty and perfection to this day. The Quran says [10.37]And the Quran is not such as could ever be produced by other then Allah, but it is a confirmation of which was before it, and a full explanation of the book wherein there is no doubt from the lord of all man Alamin. Information in the Quran includes stories that build your morals, in historical accounts, religious teachings, and in social laws for all time and for all people. You can read as often and as much as you want. This is the manner of the Prophet, blessings and peace be upon him, and his Companions.
Here are some guidelines you must keep in mind. First you should purify the body, clothes and place of reading. It is forbidden (Haram) to read the Quran after sexual intercourse or wet dream, until he or she takes a full bath. Women who are menstruating or post-natal bleeding can read the Quran from memory, but should not touch it. It is recommended that you face the Kiblah and start every surah with Bismillah. Try not to yawn while reading, simply stop and start again. You should also avoid stopping to speak with people. If you begin to cry from you’re heart during reading this will bring a sense of humbleness.
Quran Translation and Recitation
You can find the Quran translated in most languages. An authentic Quran should have a statement of authenticity inside and also should contain the original Arabic form. It is required of new Muslim's to try to learn to read the Quran correctly in the Arabic text to receive the full blessing. You can find help with this on many web pages.
[500 Ahadith.491] Muhammad (pbuh), “He who recites the Quran well and clearly is equal in rank to the angels who record creation’s deeds. Theses Angels are honorable and lofty in rank. He who finds difficulty in reciting the Quran will obtain a double reward.” [Bukhari, muslim]
