Qura'an like my cell phone

I wonder what would happen if I treated the Qura'an like I treat my cell phone ? What if I carried it around in my purses for pocket? What if I turned back to go get it if I forgot it? What if I flipped through it several times a day? What if I used it to receive messages from the text? What if I treated it like I couldn't live without it? What if I gave it to my child as a gift? What if I used it as I traveled? What if I used it in case of an emergency? What if I upgraded it to get the latest edition? This is something to make me think ... hmmm ... where is my qura'an? Oh, and one more thing. Unlike my cell phone, I don't ever have to worry about the Holy book being disconnected because Allah has already paid the bill . This prayer is powerful, and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is no cost but a lot of rewards. Let's continue to pray for one another The Holy Prophet (SA) had advised to recite the following Dua'a after every obligatory Namaaz to obtain Allah's Mercy ALLAAHUMMA ADKHIL A'LAA AHLIL QUBOORIS SUROOR ALLAAHUMMA AGHNI KULLA FAQEER ALLAAHUMMA ASHBIA' - KULLA JAA - EEI'N ALLAAHUMMA AKSU KULLA U'RYAAN ALLAAHUMMAQ - Z''I DAYNA KULLI MDEEN ALLAAHUMMA FARRIJ A'N KULLI MAKROOB ALLAAHUMMA RUDDA KULLA GHAREEB ALLAAHUMMA FUKKA KULLA ASEER ALLAAHUMMA AS'LIH' KULLA FAASIDIN MIN UMOORIL MUSLIMEEN ALLAAHUMMASH - FI KULLA MAREEZ'' ALLAAHUMMA SUDDA FAQRANAA BI - GHINAAKA ALLAAHUMMA GHAYYIR SOOO - A H'AALINAA BI - H'USNI H'AALIKA ALLAAHUMMAQ - Z''I A'NNAD DAYNA WA AGHNINAA MINAL FAQR INNAKA A'LAA KULLI SHAY - IN QADEER May Allah give us all good health so that we can use it in His worship. May He also give us the courage and understanding to carry out acts of worship as soon as possible and not leave them to a later date. Aameen. Rabbi zidni`ilma ('My Lord! Increase me in knowledge!')
