Don’t think I’ve honestly read the Quran cover to cover. I think it’s more important to read the translation. What do you think?

Not in a position to say which is “more” important.

But it is VERY important to read with translation.


Both are important and both have their distinct rewards. No reason you can’t do both! There are Quran’s with translation and detailed explanations below each ayat.


Not to say I won’t read both

For me, its more important to understand the Quran what it is saying and I usually read the Quran in arabic and have an amazing simple English translation Quran with headings in it.
So it makes it more interesting to read and understand the Quran.

This is not sooo simple, of course sometimes I need to reach out to scholar to ask questions about what is happening here.

Example: On some places the Quran has a word ‘We’ I had to ask scholar about it and he told me ‘We’ refers to Allah in Quran to honor him.

I’m so sorry if I’m making it complicated for you but yeah, whenever I have any questions I talk to scholars and watch Yaqeen’s 30 for 30 to understand what is happening and what is the message for us.


For those of you that have read it with translation, is there a specific translation that you prefer to read?

Two very easy modern translations are by Mostafa khattab and Abdul Haleem. I'd check those out.


I haven't but I should. I don't know that it is more important though.

Read the translation cover to cover. I think the real problem people don't like addressing is that they don't know how to read the Arabic or have forgotten. It's ok try to learn.

Ultimately I think we will be ok, but I know he's hurting / stressed / and could use a supportive partner.

Is this bowl dead because everyone is taken or have you all just given up?? 🤣


Met a girl today through AM setup. She is a year older to me and earns 1.6X my CTC(more than enough for a good life in a metro city). She seems career oriented but doesn't want to pursue her career abroad and wants the same for her future partner to not go overseas as she would like to stay near to her family in the same state.
I don't have any career opportunities abroad in the next few yrs but i would like to go if an opportunity comes in the future.
What should be my response?

My fiancé will NOT stop talking about her ex. After I found out they were texting arguing she justified it by saying it was about the dogs and not them. Even though Her social media is full of his pics. She still sends him $50 a month for dog food, still goes to work right by his place and suspiciously needs keys. I try to bring it up and I get dismantled for being too mean and making “false accusations.” How much more obvious can it be?
