How to start reciting the Holy Word of God Almighty

How to start  reciting the Holy Word of God Almighty
First of all, one should perform Ablution, before touching the Holy Qur-‘aan.
Fa-`izaa qara’-tal-Qur-`aana fasta-‘iz bIllaahi minash-Shaytaanir-Rajiim
And when thou recitest the Qur’aan, seek refuge in Allah from Satan the outcast.

Lesson
Out of the creatures of ALLAH ALMIGHTY, there is also a creature, which is called Satan (the devil). He has been born from the fire. When a competition took place between the Angels and Adam (peace be upon them), and Adam (peace be upon Him) won the Test, GOD ordered Angels to bow in front of Adam (peace be upon Him). So all the Angels bowed their bodies and placed their foreheads on the ground in front of Adam (peace be upon Him). But Satan denied bowing because he had disease of pride in his heart. When he was asked, he replied, “I have been born from the fire and Adam (peace be upon Him) from the Mud. So I am better than He. How the fire can bow in front of the mud”. Hence, due to his pride the Satan was determined outcast forever and till the Day of Resurrection he was fixed as cursed. Now the Satan decided to take revenge of his disgrace. Anyhow he caused to put Adam (peace be upon Him) and his wife, Eve, out of the Heaven and announced that he would try to misguide the children of Adam (peace be upon Him) until the Day of Judgment. It means that the Satan is our real enemy forever. So our LORD (ALLAH ALMIGHTY) ordered us to recite as mentioned above. The Last Messenger Muhammad (peace be upon Him) guides us that Satan produces effects in your constitution like the blood circulates in your bodies. Satan looks the people but the people neither can look him and nor they can save themselves from the attack of Satan easily. So everybody must seek refuge from the effects of Satan. It is included in the respect of recitation of Holy Qur’aan that whenever anyone out of you begins to recite, he should recite first of all, “'A-'uuzu bIllaahi minash-Shaytaanir-Rajiim" (I seek refuge in ALLAH from Satan the outcast). So that our MASTER take us in HIS refuge and Satan may not get chance to mislead and allure us in this Good act. Essence of the meanings of Verses may change with wrong interpretation. O ALLAH ALMIGHTY! Save us from each kind of depravity.


BismIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Lesson
Three names have been mentioned in this verse.
1. ALLAH is a name which is used only for God. No other body can be called with this name. It is HIS personal name. ALLAH is the Life Who created the entire universe, like the earth, the skies, rivers, Mountains, vegetations, minerals & fossils, moon, sun, stars etc. Moon and stars twinkle with HIS Power. Birds fly with HIS order. HE causes to rain and grows all kinds of productions.

2. RAHMAAN (The BENEFICENT) is HIS attributive name. It is a declaration of HIS common Pity that HE feels pity over HIS entire creature. HIS air, rains and other kindnesses are equal for all, good and bad. HE gives us a lot of precious prizes without requesting.

3. RAHIIM (The MERCIFUL) is 2nd attributive name of ALLAH and declaration of HIS particular Mercy. HE bestows specific rewards to HIS servants. HE grants 70 steps more in exchange for goodness. In the Sayings (Hadith) of Messenger (peace be upon Him) of ALLAH it comes that whenever He (peace be upon Him) used to begin any work, first of all He, The Messenger (peace be upon Him) recited BismIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim. Whenever we have to start any work with HIS name, then, as though we shall say that my heart is pure, my intention is sincere, my cause is higher, I am servant of only ALLAH and displeased from infidelity. If ALLAH is The BENEFICENT and The MERCIFUL, then we should trust in HIS Mercy. We should not lose the spirit, we should not withdraw cowardly. When we shall trust in ALLAH like this, then we shall succeed in every field of life. So the Messenger (peace be upon Him) guided us ,”If before beginning of any work, Bismillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim is not recited, then GOD’s prosperity would not include in that work and resultant the heart of that person would not satisfy from it.
