Reflection upon Completion of Quran Intensive


Upon completion of my first journey through the Qur’an, the following verses best describe my emotions:

ٱلْمَالُ وَٱلْبَنُونَ زِينَةُ ٱلْحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنْيَا ۖ وَٱلْبَـٰقِيَـٰتُ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتُ خَيْرٌ عِندَ رَبِّكَ ثَوَابًۭا وَخَيْرٌ أَمَلًۭا

Wealth and children are the adornment of this worldly life, but the everlasting good deeds are far better with your Lord in reward and in hope.

(Surah Kahf 46)


Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) here I am sitting in Qur’an class pondering over this ayah with a curious sensation of “Déjà vu” in my heart. Tears are dropping on my notebook right next to the traces of dried tears that I have shed long ago… Are these tears falling for the same reason? Absolutely not… Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) You Alone can understand the turmoil that is taking place inside me at this very instant, but allow me to record these words so that I never forget how I feel right now.

This ayah marks the end of my first journey through the Qur’an that which only You gave me the courage to undertake in its entirety. Memories  are flashing back in my mind, reminding me of the amazing journey that ends today… Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) my physical body is unable to express what I feel at this very moment… Oh Allah            (سبحانه و تعالى ) it is as if I have woken up from a deep sleep and reality is surrounding me.

As I sit here in my Tafseer class in front of my beloved teacher, reflecting, experiencing and seeing everything clearly I contemplate, “Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) will the day I stand in front of You, be at all comparable to this feeling that I am experiencing right now?


nd they will be presented before your Lord in rows, [and He will say], “You have certainly come to Us just as We created you the first time. But you claimed that We would never make for you an appointment.

And the record [of deeds] will be placed [open], and you will see the criminals fearful of that within it, and they will say, “Oh, woe to us! What is this book that leaves nothing small or great except that it has enumerated it?” And they will find what they did present [before them]. And your Lord does injustice to no one.

[Qur’an – 18:48-49]


Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) in these Verses is Your answer!  I am right now experiencing this reality… I am meeting You Oh My Rabb! I am sitting in this standard classroom reading my book of records, placed right in front of my eyes. It’s my Juz (chapter 15 of the Quran). How astonishing is this Book! My previous notes are all still preserved in it, nothing has been forgotten, not even the tears that I have shed which have left dried stains on it… “Yes I have gone through these before! I remember these verses, these are not new to me anymore…” Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) , will my reaction be the same on the Last Day? Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) , am I actually experiencing the Last Day?

What an overwhelming feeling this is! Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) , don’t ever let me forget this miraculous experience!


And [mention] when We said to the angels, “Prostrate to Adam,” and they prostrated, except for Iblees. He was of the jinn and departed from the command of his Lord. Then will you take him and his descendants as allies other than Me while they are enemies to you? Wretched it is for the wrongdoers as an exchange.”

[Qur’an – 18:50]

Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) , how lovingly You reply to my invocations! Iblees is my open enemy and only You can protect me from falling into his trap… Do not let him delude me and forget Our meeting.

“Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) are You pleased with me? Will the end of my journey of Your Book, be also the end of my stay in Dunya?” I am now driving back home in a dazed state… Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) You alone can protect me and decree the best time for my soul to depart from my body. The consciousness of death is now at its maximum. No word can express the sensations I am feeling right now.

The ink of my pen is flowing over this white paper uncontrollably… How can only words suffice to express such an ethereal emotion? Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) , You Alone can understand…

Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) , You are teaching me the most vital message that I must keep secured in my heart until the day I meet You, Faith in the Akhirah (Hereafter) is the Key to Paradise! Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) what a blessing You have given me by allowing me to experience and understand this message through my journey of the Qur’an.

Glory be to You Oh Allah (سبحانه و تعالى)!
