Why do we read Quran, even we can’t understand Arabic?

Filed under: Cerita Renungan Bersama — MIRWAN @ 3:56 pm

An old American Muslim lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern Kentucky with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his Qur’an. His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in everyway he could. One day the grandson asked, “Grandpa, I try to read the Qur’an just like you but I don’t understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon as I close the book. What good does reading the Qur’an do?” The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied, “Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of water.” The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back to the house. The grandfather laughed and said, “You’ll have to move a little faster next time,” and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again. This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead. The old man said, “I don’t want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water. You’re just not trying hard enough,” and he went out the door to watch the boy try again. At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show this grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got back to the house. The boy again dipped the basket into river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty. Out of breath, he said, “See Grandpa, it’s useless!” “So you think it is useless?” The old man said, “Look at the basket.” The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal-basket and was now clean, inside and out. “Son, that’s what happens when you read the Qur’an. You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out. That is the work of Allah (SWT) in our lives.”

Maksudnya email tersebut di dalam Bahasa Melayu ialah; Kenapa kita baca Al-Quran walaupun tidak memahami isinya? Terdapat seorang lelaki tua yang tinggal di sebuah ladang di Kentucky, US dengan cucunya. Setiap pagi, Si Datuk akan membaca Al-Quran di ruang dapur. Si cucu yang melihat, juga meniru perbuatan Datuknya itu. Satu hari si Cucu bertanya kepada datuknya, “Atuk, saya baca Quran ini tapi tak fahamlah maksudnya.  Kalau faham pun saya akan lupa bila tutup Al-Quran. Jadi apa gunanya kita baca Al-Quran ini?” Si Datuk lalu berpaling sebentar dan mendapatkan sebuah bakul yang kotor kerana diisi arang sebelumnya. “Nah, kau pergi sungai, bawak air dalam bakul ni” . Si cucu pun bergegas ke sungai yang berhampiran dengan rumah mereka di ladang. Apabila pulang, tiada lagi air yang tinggal. “Kau lambat sangat, cuba lari laju-laju sikit”. Si cucu pun berlari ke sungai dan apabila tiba di hadapan datuknya, tiada juga air yang tinggal. “Tak boleh lah Atuk”.  Cuba sekali lagi. Kali ini datuknya melihat dari pintu. Si cucu pun, cepat-cepat ke sungai dan berlari membawa bakul untuk tunjuk kepada datuknya. “Nampak tak Atuk? Tak boleh lah”. “Tak ada gunaya” bentak si cucu. :sad: Si Datuk pun berkata, “Jadi kau rasa tak bergunalah? Cuba kau tengok bakul tu”. Seperti baru tersedar, si cucu baru perasan yang bakul yang kotor tadi, kini sudah bersih. Terus si datuk menyambung, “Macam itu lah dengan membaca Al-Quran, walaupun tidak memahami maksudnya, tetapi ia tetap membersihkan si pembacanya. Itu semua dengan kehendak Allah. Kerja Allah”
