An excellent example of respect and affinity with the Qur’an

PrintE-mail

In our locality there was a woman whose child was reciting his sabaq (lesson) at her side whilst she was preparing the bread at the stove. It was the norm that the children would learn by the womenfolk. This child read لا تَأمَنَّا (a portion of a verse in the 12th para) whilst the mother was rolling out the ball of dough. She placed the dough in to a dish and dusted her hands so that any dough stuck on her hands may fall into the dish.

Thereafter she took the Qur’an from his hand, placed it under her arm and slapped him. She then admonished him saying, “ لا تَأمَنَّا can only be read in two ways, Ishmam and Rawm. There is no third way.”

This woman had done this so that no disrespect is shown to the bread, dough nor the Qur’an. Had she slapped him without taking the precautionary measures then it was possible that either the child would have fallen or the Qur’an would have fallen from his hands, which would have amounted to disrespect of the Qur’an. In this way she took care of everything.
