A'salaamu alaikum! My husband is going to be going through the Qur'an with me, surah by surah, and doing an early morning halaqa with the emphasis on tafsir and learning the meaning behind the verses in the Qur'an. I am so excited; it stemmed from a conversation we had this morning which turned into a "Grab the Qur'an with Arabiy and English". I read aloud the entire surah (surat-ul-Maryam) and he would stop me to interject definitions, meanings, clarify the English, give background and related hadith, etc.
Really I am so excited and happy about this. :-) It was so much fun this morning and I know I am learning LOADS more than when I just read Qur'an on my own. It is indeed a huge blessing from Allah swt that I have married A. Alhamdulillah there are many good things about our marriage (please say masha'Allah!) but this is really one of his selling-points for me. I intend to exploit his knowledge to the fullest!!! lol
One ayat which really spoke to me today (which I'm sure we've all read before) is ayah 67 of surat-ul-Maryam:
"Does not man remember that We created him, when he was nothing?"
Subhanallah. I love this; these exact words or very similar are sprinkled throughout the Qur'an, a CLEAR reminder to be grateful to Allah and be in awe of His majesty and omnipotence.
I just wanted to share this ayah with you all that you may be blessed with it too insha'Allah.
