Cultivate a love for reading

Cultivate a love for reading

Reading is a means of thinking with another person’s mind; it forces you to stretch your own.
-Charles Scribner, Jr.

Reading can be defined as a process where the mind passes from

understanding less to understanding more. A person is forced to think beyond the obvious. Why

should we develop and nurture this habit as productive Muslims today? This is so

because we “think” from our minds. If our mind knows what to do and that which is the

“right” thing to do, then in’shallah our heart will follow soon. Just think. The first revelation to

the Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) who could not read was:

Read: In the Name of your Lord Who created” (Quran: Chapter 96, Verse 1).
