Why do we read Quran, even if we can't understand word by word ?????

Reactions: 

This is a beautiful story

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 Quran. His grandson wanted to be just like him and
tried to imitate him in every way he could.

One day the grandson asked, "Grandpa! I try to read the Quran 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 in.

At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his
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 when you read time by time . That is the work of Allah in our
lives...."



MALAY VERSION :)

Seorang Muslim tua Amerika tinggal di sebuah ladang di pergunungan Kentucky timur
dengan cucu masih muda. Setiap pagi datuk bangun lebih awal duduk di
meja dapur membaca Quran-nya. Sang cucu ingin menjadi seperti dia dan
cuba untuk menirunya dalam cara apapun semampunya.

Suatu hari sang cucu bertanya, "datuk saya cuba untuk membaca Al-Quran seperti kamu
tapi aku tidak memahaminya, dan apa yang aku fahami aku lupakan secepat aku
menutup buku. Apakah kebaikan dari membaca Al-Quran? "

Dengan tenang sang datuk dengan meletakkan batu bara di tungku pemanas sambil berkata,
"Bawa bakul batu bara ini ke sungai dan bawa kemari lagi dengan dipenuhi
air.

Anak itu melakukan seperti yang diperintahkan datuknya, tetapi semua air habis menitis sebelum tiba di depan rumah. datuk tertawa dan berkata, "Kau harus bergerak
cepat lagi" Maka ia menyuruh cucunya kembali ke sungai dengan bakul tersebut untuk mencuba lagi. Kali ini anak itu berlari lebih cepat, tapi sekali lagi bakul itu kosong sebelum ia kembali ke rumah. Termengah-mengah, dia berkata kepada datuknya bahawa mustahil membawa air dalam bakul, dan ia pergi untuk mengambil baldi sebagai gantinya.

Orang tua itu berkata, "Aku tidak ingin sebaldi air, aku ingin sebakul air.
kamu tidak berusaha cukup keras, "dan ia pergi ke luar pintu untuk menonton
cucu nya itu cuba memasukkan air.

Pada ketika itu, anak itu tahu bahawa hal itu mustahil, tetapi ia ingin menunjukkan pada datuk bahawa walaupun dia berlari secepat mungkin, air tetap akan bocor
keluar sebelum ia sampai ke rumah. Anak itu kembali mencelupkan bakul ke
sungai dan berlari sekuat tenaga, tetapi ketika ia sampai didepan datuknya bakul itu tetap kosong. Termengah-mengah, ia berkata, "Lihat tuk, ini berguna!"

"Jadi kamu fikir percuma?" Orang tua itu berkata, "Lihatlah bakulnya."

Anak itu melihat ke dalam bakulnya dan untuk pertama kalinya menyedari bahawa bakul
itu telah berubah dari bakul batubara yang tua kotor dan kini bersih, luar dalam.

anakku, itulah yang terjadi ketika kamu membaca Al-Quran. Anda tidak boleh memahami atau ingat segalanya, tetapi ketika kamu membacanya, kamu akan berubah, di dalam dan keluar ketika anda membaca masa dengan masa. Itu adalah karunia dari Allah di dalam kita hidup ...."
