Understanding the Quran

Quran literacy

It is well known that not a few Muslims are able to recite the Quran but do not always understand what they recite. This is due partly to an excessive attention to form at the expense of substance. Without understanding the Quran, it is difficult if not impossible to follow its guidance. Thus, steps need to be taken to ensure better Quran literacy.

Reading for Meaning

It is important to read the book for its meaning. The meaning could be discussed in classes on the Quran. Speakers could be invited to give talks on the Quran. There should be an atmosphere of lively exchange.
