Memorizing the Qur’an is not just about memorizing the words of Allah `azza wa jall. No. It’s a lot more than that. By understanding the meanings and by making a sincere move to truly live these words, you’ll come to see that it’s actually a magnificent journey. It’s a journey that takes you through paths you never thought you’d ever tread.

Our creator recognizes that we all need new beginnings from time to time. To turn over a new leaf, to start a new page, to have a blank slate are a part of the human conscience and process. That is why several times a year we are given this opportunity where if we were to take advantage of it our sins would be forgiven for the previous year. One of those opportunities is on Monday, November 3rd, insha Allah. The day of Aashoora. Fasting this day is highly recommended along with the day before on November 2nd or a day after on November 4th it but if you are unable to then fasting Aashoora alone is permissible.
