There is no doubt that the Qurʾān holds great importance for Muslims. Its teaching serves as a guideline to Muslims on how to live their lives. In all aspects of life, including personal relationships and social justice, the Qurʾān provides guidance and direction. Therefore, Muslims must have a strong understanding of its teachings and how to apply them in daily lives. 

Many times, people forget the true meaning and purpose of it. The Qurʾān holds solutions to most problems we might face, so it’s worthwhile to remember its teachings and the way they impact our lives. 

Unfortunately, for Muslims today, the Qur’an is just a simple book on their shelf; they barely even touch it due to their busy routine. If you wish to have a better understanding of the Qurʾān and how it may change our lives and get close to Allah, here are 7 ways to do that. So let’s get started. 

7 Ways For Improving Your Relationship With Qurʾān 

1. Perform Ablution before Reading the Qurʾān

Since the Qurʾān is Allah’s holy book, the first and foremost duty of a Muslim is to ensure that his or her hands are neat and clean before touching it. 

The purpose of ablution is to cleanse your body of any dirt before we perform any religious obligations and reciting Qurʾān is such an obligation. That is the ultimate goal of reciting the Qurʾān ‘to get closer to Allah’, and cleansing ourselves is important before we begin recitation. 

2. Recite Qurʾān Regularly

The best way to improve your understanding of the Qurʾān and its teachings is to recite it regularly on a daily basis, even if just a few verses. 

Reciting Qurʾān daily freshens your knowledge and helps you connect with Allah deeply. To recite Qurʾān regularly one has to be proficient in Arabic language. Muslims who are not fluent in Arabic should try to learn the language to benefit from the Qurʾān fully.

Set a specific time of day when you will read the Qurʾān and stick to it. Try to make it a habit. Set a daily alarm, so you can stop all your current activities and prepare yourself. 

3. Recite Quran With Proper Tajweed 

Become knowledgeable about the proper rules of recitation (Tajweed) so that you are able to read and understand the Qurʾān more effectively. In Qurʾān recitation, the term “Tajweed” is commonly used. In Arabic, it means to enhance something to make it outstanding or more attractive.

The Tajweed is a set of rules for reciting the Qurʾān in accordance with the manner in which Prophet Muḥammad (ṣ) recited it.

4. Apply the teachings of the Quran in your Daily life

The Qurʾān guides all aspects of life, from personal relationships to social justice.  To keep a constant connection with the Holy Book, Muslims should apply what they have learned from the Qurʾān to their daily lives.

In the Qurʾān, for instance, it is emphasized that we should always treat others with kindness and respect. Muslims should therefore be kind to others and refrain from taking actions that can harm them. 

“A kind word and forgiveness is better than a charitable deed followed by hurtful [words]: God is self-sufficient, forbearing.”

Holy Qurʾān [2:263]

In the same way, the Qurʾān urges Muslims to adhere to these teachings and be honest in their business dealings.

Also, reciting various Sūrahs helps prevent specific problems in our lives. Such as reciting Sūrah Yaseen daily can solve your problems in this world and ease your difficulties. Reciting Sūrah Kahf protects us from poverty and forgives our sins. Reciting Sūrah ar-Raḥmān in the hospital near a patient helps to cure them. 

5. Incorporate Qurʾānic Teachings in Your Family Life

he Qurʾān guides all aspects of life and family life is no exception. When you make decisions related to family matters, use it as a source to make decisions that align with Islamic teachings. This will further strengthen your relationship with Qurʾān too. 

Also, teach your children Qurʾān from a very young age. Help them in reciting it to understand its true meaning. Doing so will help them develop a strong moral character that includes compassion, honesty and kindness since this is what the Qurʾān teaches. 

6. Recite Qurʾān With its Translation

Reciting the Qurʾān without understanding its meaning is not as beneficial as reciting it with comprehension. Muslims should try to understand the meaning of the Qurʾān to improve their relationship with it. 

Always recite the Qurʾān along with its translation to fully understand what each verse is saying. There are various translations of the Qurʾān available in different languages, and Muslims who don’t fully understand Arabic can choose a translation they understand easily. 

Moreover, if you still need help, seek guidance from Islamic scholars and teachers who can explain its meaning.

7. Attend Qurʾān classes and Lectures

A closer relationship with the Qurʾān can also be developed through attending Qurʾānic classes and lectures. Many clerics in Islamic centers and mosques offer lectures and classes on Qurʾān to understand its meaning and how to apply them in daily life.

Other than that, if one cannot go to Mosque, one can listen to online lectures. Many scholars and clerics have started online classes to teach Muslims an in-depth meaning of the Qurʾān and explain the significance of each verse.  

Furthermore, attending Qurʾānic classes and lectures can provide the opportunity to connect with other Muslims.


Millions of Muslims around the world find guidance, comfort, and inspiration in the Qurʾān. By following these tips Muslims can improve their relationship with the Qurʾān and deepen their understanding of its teachings. Remember to set a regular time for Qurʾān reading, understand its meaning, recite with proper Tajweed.  

With consistent effort and dedication, you can establish a meaningful and fulfilling relationship with the Qurʾān that will enrich your spiritual journey.
