Celebration Nuzulul Qur’an in Islam


Each year, and precisely in this holy month of Ramadan, a lot of Muslims around you to celebrate and commemorate a historic event which has changed the direction of human history.

Genesis history is Nuzul Quran; revelation of the Qur’an in intact Lauhul Mahfud in seventh heaven, to the Baitul Izzah in the sky world.

شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنْزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآَنُ هُدًى لِلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِنَ الْهُدَى وَالْفُرْقَانِ. البقرة  185

The month of Ramadan is the month in which the Koran was sent down, a guidance for people, and clear verses of guidance and the criterion.(Qs. Al Baqarah: 185)

The celebration of the Holy Qur’an decline manifested by the community in various events, there is by holding a public recitation. Of those there to celebrate it with a stage art performances, such as qasidah, anasyid and others. And not infrequently also commemorated with a party meal.

Have you asked: how is the Messenger of Allah sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, his friend and also the scholars’ earlier after they commemorate this event?

You feel like to know what is being done by the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam?

Abdullah bin Abbas radhiallahu ‘anhu tells about what the Prophet did.

كَانَ جِبْرِيلُ يَلْقَاهُ فِى كُلِّ لَيْلَةٍ مِنْ رَمَضَانَ ، فَيُدَارِسُهُ الْقُرْآنَ . رواه البخاري

“It used to always see the Angel Gabriel Prophet ‘alaihi wa sallam on every night of Ramadan, and then he read the Qur’an with him.” (Reported by Al-Bukhari)

Consider the narrative radhiallahu Huzaifah friends ‘anhu about his experiences with Rasulillah tarawih prayers sallallaahu’ alaihi wa sallam.

“On one night in the month of Ramadan, I pray with the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam in chambers made of date palm midrib. He began his prayer by reading the Takbir, then he read the prayer:

الله أكبر ذُو الجَبَرُوت وَالْمَلَكُوتِ ، وَذُو الكِبْرِيَاءِ وَالْعَظَمَةِ

Following that he started to read surah Al Baqarah, so I think that he will stop at the 100th paragraph, it turns out he kept reading. Miqdaad re-think: he will stop at the 200th paragraph, it turns out he continued to read until the end of Al-Baqarah, and continuing with letters until the end of Ali Imran. Then he went on again with a letter An Nisa ’till the end of the letter. Every time he passed the paragraph that contains the things that scary, he paused to pray for protection. …. Since the end of Isha prayer ‘in the early evening to late night, when Bilal told him that the time has come dawn prayer he prays only four cycles. “(Reported by Ahmad and Al Hakim)

That is how the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam commemorate the Holy Qur’an in the month of ramadan, full of appreciation will read its meaning. Not just stop at mudarasah, he is also a lot of reading the Qur’an in his prayer, to the point that on one rak’ah course, he read the letter Al Baqarah, Ali Imran and An Nisa ‘, or as many as five more chapters.

This is what the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam during Ramadan, and thus how to commemorate his Qur’an. No-eating dinner party, let alone performing arts, singing, drama or dance.
