? Why do we read Quran, even if we can’t understand a single Arabic word

An old American Muslim lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern

Kentucky with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up

early sitting at the kitchen table reading his Quran. His grandson

wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in every way he

.could

One day the grandson asked, «Grandpa! I try to read the Quran just

like you but I don’t understand it, and what I do understand I forget

«?as soon as I close the book. What good does reading the Qur’an do

The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and

replied, «Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a

«.basket of water

The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got

back to the house. The grandfather laughed and said, «You’ll have to

move a little faster next time,» and sent him back to the river with the

basket to try again. This time the boy ran faster, but again the

basket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his

grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he

.went to get a bucket instead

The old man said, «I don’t want a bucket of water; I want a basket of

water. You’re just not trying hard enough,» and he went out the door

.to watch the boy try again

At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show

his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would

leak out before he got back to the house. The boy again dipped the

basket into river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather

the basket was again empty. Out of breath, he said, «See Grandpa, it’s

«.useless

«So you think it is useless?» The old man said, «Look at the basket»

The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the

basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal

.basket and was now clean, inside and out

Son, that’s what happens when you read the Qur’an. You »

might not understand or remember everything, but when

you read it, you will be changed, inside and out. That is the work of

«.Allah in our lives
