One of the goals I set for this Ramadan was to complete one reading of the Quran. For various reasons I have been struggling with this - I have what feels like a massive workload at the moment with work, kids, a small baby, a busy household and endless rounds of cooking, laundry and cleaning. At the same time I hurt my back last week so badly I could not sit for more than ten or fifteen minutes at a time. This meant I was falling behind with my Quran reading.
Alhamdulillah, I am much better now and I am trying to keep up. One other reason I am behind is that I am reading much more slowly. This year I started studying Arabic grammar. It has been a massive eye-opener to the miracle of the Quran and I am forever trying to understand words and phrases of what I am reading. The course I am studying (details here) has deepened my desire to immerse myself in the Quran to search for its gems and to try and understand the book of Allah. Insh'Allah I hope to make this my life-long endeavour .
I am behind in my studies at the moment due to life being quite hectic and I am desperately trying to find a space in the day where I can study each day. I have an exam just after Ramadan which I need to pass to progress onto the next term. Please, please make dua for me.
