This Ramadhān, I gained an absolutely fundamental yet completely unexpected appreciation.
For the first time, no matter which night of taraweeh I joined, I could recite along. No matter which portion of Qur’ān was being recited on the radio or on TV, I could picture where it was (in my mental mushaf [Qurʾān]). I could recite any portion needed for our family khatm.
This Ramadhān, I came to appreciate the ni’mah (blessing) of being a hāfidha.
Oh Allah, I beg You to strengthen our relationships with the Qur’ān, and ultimately with You. Ameen.
