Quranic awareness among Youth

Must Read

Dr. Showkat Rashid Wani

In my PhD thesis one of the variables was Religiosity, for which I constructed and standardised an Integrated Muslim Religiosity Scale which contains 100 items. My findings demonstrated that there is a significant correlation between low level of Religiosity and Delinquency.

The need of the hour is to comprehend our youth about the basic teaching of Quran. I tried a novel way to teach Quran to my respondents. For examples I gave them the list of names of Almighty Allah and assigned them the group work to locate the surah and verses where they are reflected in Quran.

They found the exercise very interesting and fully absorbed in the activity. This exercise helped them to make an in-depth study of Quran; they discovered very interesting facts from this divine book. On sample basis I shall reflect one question.

What is the meaning of Al-Musawir. After navigating the Holy Quran  the student replied that it is reflected  in the last verse of Sura Al Hashr  (59) and it means  The Perfect Fashioner, Shaper, Bestower of Forms.

Another group was assigned the task to identify the verses in Quran related to parents. On sample basis I am reflecting one answer from my respondent “When Prophet Ibrahim prayed for his parents and believers, he said: “Our Lord, forgive me and my parents and all believers on the day when reckoning shall take place” [14: 41]”. In this article I am reflecting some question and answers which have been derived from Holy Quran for the purpose of creating Quranic Awareness in our youth. Being the student of Education I impress upon the experts in field of Islamic Studies to come out with a comprehensive item bank derived from Holy  Quran so that ordinary man like me is well acquainted with Quranic fundamentals. While preparing this short inventory I got it vetted from the experts from the field still there are changes of some error, in case any error is spotted please email me so that same can be rectified.
