Listen Beautiful Quran Recitation from Arsenal Footballer

Muslim footballers are doing amazing work and promoting Islam using social media. They are portraying the true picture of Islam and influencing the young generations of Muslims as well as non-Muslims.

Recently the  Arsenal and Egypt’s Muslim footballer Mohamed Elneny was reciting the verses of the Holy Qur’an on social media. This recitation draws a lot of positive reactions by people following him.

Indeed to reflect on Allah’s verses is a form of worship that will draw one close to  Allah Most High. This reflection is not a reckless and wandering one, rather it includes a study of the classical Tafseer of the verses being pondered over, as this  would fulfill Ibnul-Qayyim’s great advice, “Such as reflecting over a book which a person has memorized and he expounds it so that he may understand what its author intends by it.”

Indeed the Book of Allah is not a book like any other, it is the timeless Speech of Allah, not a created thing, the study guide for life and death and what comes after. Therefore it deserves a more careful study than anyone else’s speech. It necessitates that its reader return to the early narrations of those who witnessed its revelation and heard its explanation by the one deputed by Allah to rehearse and explain His Words to humanity (sallallaah  ‘alaihi wa sallam).

For if one would try to ponder over the meanings of the verses without having done this study, then surely the filth of the time that he lives in and his ignorance of the correct application and understanding that the early Muslims had would cause him to understand some things not intended by Allah Most High, and therefore he would go astray, thinking to be worshipping Allah.
