Quran, the sacred scripture of Islam, is widely regarded as the finest work in classical literature. It is composed of 114 chapters consisting of various verses. Quran is made obligatory on each Muslim to read and understand its verses as guided by Allah (SWT) for becoming a better person, to walk on the true path of Islam to reach the destination of Jannah. Quran learning is very important for each Muslim.
One who memorizes the whole Quran is called a Hafiz. In order to explore the Quran completely, one must rely on the commentary i.e., Tafsir. Quran is believed to be the revelation from God (Allah).a

Why Quran learning is important?

Quran learning is really important as it brings a Muslim closer to Allah. This noble act must be performed
daily by all resulting to be as a proof of the rewards of one’s good deeds on the Day of Judgment.
Muslims start learning Quran at an early age and the continuous connection brings them closer to
the Creator; brings great blessing in the world as well as the afterlife.
The Holy Book Quran is the speech of Allah (SWT). When we make mistakes while speaking or writing
English, we feel embarrassed because it is the most sought-after language used in the world today.
Many of them don’t speak out of fear of insult and being made fun of. Then what about the speech of
Our Creator? Don’t you think, it should be each Muslim’s top priority? Learning to read any other
language doesn’t give us ten rewards for each alphabet being read, but this happens while reading
Arabic Quran. The Messenger of Allah said that whoever reads a Quran will get rewarded ten times for
each letter.

Quran learning is important equally for both Muslim men and women.
But why do females need to read Quran?
Muslim sisters plays most vital role in society. They play a vital role in forming Islamic society by raising
their children according to the teachings of Islam. So, a woman must gain the correct knowledge of
Islam and the only way to gain the teachings is to learn the Holy Quran and understand it’s
interpretations as well.

Women take approximately 50% of the total population. If Muslim sisters do not gain knowledge in
Islamic studies, then a large part of the Muslim community will not contribute towards the growth of
Muslim society is a major problem. Therefore, the Quran learning to Muslim sisters will promote the
development of the Islamic community.



In Muslim countries it is easy to find a female Quran tutor but in Non-Muslim countries, it is hard to find
a female teacher for sisters. It is seen that people living in western countries did not get the female
Quran teachers and fail their opportunity to complete their Islamic studies. For those, there should be
introduction of online Quran classes and that to free of cost, so that all can learn regardless of wealth. It
