What is a Quranic journal?

“There are moments in life when you read some Ayahs (verses) in the Quran, and they seem to have been revealed precisely for your needs at those moments. You have read them a hundred times before, but only now have your life experiences prepared you to understand them…. Keep a Quran journal of these moments when certain verses click and become real in your life.”

The MYNA (Muslim Youth of North America)

The Beauty of Qur'an Journaling

Al-Qur'an is the Miracle of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and the goal of the revelation of the Quran is; to ponder over its verses. Allah says:

(This is) a book (the Qur’an) which We have sent down to you, full of blessings that they may ponder over its verses, and that men of understanding may remember.” (Surah As-Sad 38:29)


The benefits of pondering over the Qur’an;

  1. It gives life to a spiritual heart. "Thus, we have revealed to you a ru'h (light) of our command (Surah Al-Shoora, 42:52). Shaykh Saalih al Fawzan said, while commenting on this verse: "Ru'h (spirit soul) implies the thing that gives life to a heart. In the same way, that the physical heart's life is tied directly to a ru'h, the spiritual life is also directly tied to a ru'h, and that ru'h is the Qur'an" - How to Approach and understand the Quran by Zarabozo J. M
  2. Guides in knowing the Creator: Allah (Exalted is He) uses the verses of Qur'an to reveal Himself, His Names, and Attributes to His creatures.
  3. It increases one in faith: "The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, their hearts become fearful, and when His verses are recited to them, it increases them in faith; and upon their Lord they rely" (Surah Al-Anfal, 8:2)
  4. It is the same as following the way of the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Aisha (RA) said, "Verily, the character of the prophet of Allah was the Quran." (Sahih Muslim). He could spend the whole night in prayer reciting and contemplating on only one verse!
  5. It is also the way of the companions: Abdullah ibn Mas'ud said, "When a man amongst us learned ten verses (of the Qur'an), he would not move on to the next verse until he had understood their meanings and how to live by them"
  6. No matter your circumstances or level of understanding, journaling with the Qur’an can inspire you, expand your knowledge and help you develop a profound connection with the Qur'an.

"Has the time not come for those who have believed that their hearts should become humbly submissive at the remembrance of Allah and what has come down of the truth?" (Surah Al-Hadid, 57:16)

The heart needs contemplation, and in this age of increasing distractions, Qur'an and Me Journal humbly aims to facilitate that need. We pray this humble effort benefits you and we ask Allah (Exalted is He) to accept it from you and us. Ameen.

Tips and steps to Reflect on the Qur’an

  1. Establish a schedule to really connect with the Qur’an by setting aside a few minutes a day perhaps, or simply a time when you know you are not likely to be distracted.
  2. Purify your intention to love, learn and build a lifelong relationship with the Glorious Qur’an –Be Sincere
  3. When you start journaling, do so by asking Allah for His guidance, mercy and forgiveness.
  4. Choose an ayah you know or ask Allah to choose one for you.
  5. Read the Qur’an verse in Arabic and English (or your preferred language) to get a basic meaning of what’s being said in the ayah or section.
  6. Read the Tafseer (explanation of Qur’an) for deeper understanding.
  7. Relax, reflect, express yourself freely and personalise the lessons learnt based on how it connects with your life
  8. Take practical steps to apply this knowledge to your reality. List out tasks you will like to do based on your reflections e.g. smile to strangers, visit the sick, feed the needy etc.
  9. Remember: It is your journal, no need for fancy vocabulary or grammar.
  10. Keep it simple, it’s about the Qur’an and you!

Allah says;

‘’And We have certainly made the Qur’an easy to remember. So, is there anyone who will be mindful?’’ (Qamar, 54:17)

“If the Qur’an is eternally valid, and if it is addressing you today, then you must take every message as something which is totally and urgently relevant to your life and concerns, whether it be a value or norm, a statement or piece of knowledge, a character or dialogue, a promise or a warning, a command or a prohibition.”

from Way to the Qur’an by Khurram Murad, pages 43-44

“Finally, a digital Qur’an journal, wow! I will so pour my ponderings onto this, starting with my favourite ayah - Iyyaka Na'budu Wa Iyyaka Nastaeen! “Oh my, it is really about The Qur’an and Meeee - I love it!”

Khadijah M. M

“Aww beautiful ma sha Allah, it’s a really lovely app. I will definitely use this app and dedicate a quiet moment each day to reflect. It is so easy to use. Maa sha Allah tabarakallah, may Allah swt reward you all on the day of Al Hisaab (day of reckoning). Aamin”

“Q&M helps me document my thoughts whether after salah or on the go – I particularly like that it’s available for me anytime when I get an inspiration and can’t access my book! I like that I can focus on specific ayahs and reflect on what it means to me and how I want to further my learning on the Qur’an.”

Semirah D

“Qur’an and Me is a very useful app which allows me to organise my notes and come back to reflect on them whenever I feel like it. There are also lots of colours to choose from, which makes my layout look nice and not plain. It is also really easy to find different surahs from the Qur’an and the recital that you can play is beautiful and really clear and easy to read along with. There are loads of inspirations to read from and reflect on. Overall, this is a really amazing app and a great place to keep hundreds of journal entries!”
