Online Quran Academy

Online Quran Classes in Dubai, Abu Dhabi UAE

Since the dawn of Islam in the Arab Peninsula in the seventh century, all citizens of the UAE are Muslims. The lifestyle, dress, political system, and cultural & societal values of Muslims living in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and other emirates of the UAE are all based on the teachings of the Qur’an and Islamic principles.


Over 76% of the population in the United Arab Emirates are Muslims, there are numerous mosques throughout the emirates, on every corner of every complex, no matter how big or small. Besides, there are thousands of Islamic schools (madrasas), and Islamic centers where kids and adults go to learn the teachings of Islam and the holy Quran.


All Muslims, whether children, women, or adults, are required to learn the Holy Quran. The importance of learning the Qur’an Kareem is evident from this well-known hadith:


“The best among you is the one who learns the Qur’an and teaches it.”


At-Tirmidhi also quoted another hadith that said, ‘Whoever recites a letter from Allah’s book will be rewarded with one good deed. A good deed is multiplied 10 times over. Alif Laam Meem is not one letter. Alif is one letter, Laam is one letter, and Meem is another letter.


Individuals who feel difficulty reciting the Quran but attempt to do so will be rewarded twice for it. As the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) said:


 “The one who recites the Quran and stumbles over it, finding it difficult, will have a double reward.”


It means a person will receive a reward for recitation and another reward for trying their best to recite it in the most appropriate way possible. Keeping this thing in view, Quran Focus, an online Quran school, promotes the teachings of the Al Qur’an and Islam through its online Quran classes.

How Many Pages are there in the Quran?

As Muslims, we are adamant that the Quran is the word of Allah. It is revealed as the ultimate guidance for humanity. Reciting the holy Quran provides peace and comfort to the human soul.


The Quran Majeed is the most eloquent and truthful book as it is the words of Almighty Allah. It encompasses the greatest sciences and is the complete guide for humankind.


Many Muslims feel intimidated about reciting and memorizing the holy Quran as they believe it is an enormous book they might be unable to recite or memorize. And sometimes, people are hesitant to read the Quran as it is an Arabic book.


As a result, breaking the Quran up into pages or juze is the easiest way to finish reading, reciting, and memorizing it. We’ll tell you how many pages there are in the Quran in this article and how to break it up, so it’s simpler to recite.

Significance and Importance of Eid-e Milad-un-Nabi (Mawlid an-Nabi)

Eid Milad-un-Nabi or Mawlid an-Nabi or Eid Milad is an auspicious occasion in which Muslims around the world commemorate the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The last Prophet, Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was born in the 12th Rabi ul-Awwal, the third month of the Islamic calendar. Eid e Milad (12th Rabi ul-Awwal) is observed as a public holiday in many Muslim countries as it marks the birth anniversary of the last Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), founder of Islam, and upon whom the Holy Quran was revealed.

Here are the details about the importance and history of this day.

Importance of the Month of Rabi-ul-Awwal

Rabi-ul-Awwal is the third month of the Islamic year, followed by the 2nd month of Safar and 1st month of Muharram. The literal meaning of Rabi is ‘the spring’ and Al-Awwal means ‘the first. So Rabi al-Awwal means ‘the first spring of the year’.

However, this meaning does not hold much importance in the contemporary context, as the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar where the seasons may differ from the month. Still, metaphorically, it is the symbol of joy and the blossom of hope. The key event that makes this month significant for the Muslim world is the birth anniversary of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Besides the birth of the Holy Prophet (PBUH), this month has a lot of significance because of some other occasions that took place during this month. This was the month in which Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) started his journey of Hijrah. In addition, the holy Prophet built Masjid Quba (the first mosque in Islamic history) this month. Also, the first Jumma was held this month.

What is Eid Milad-un-Nabi?

Eid Milad-un-Nabi is also referred to as Mawlid or Mawlid-un-Nabi Sharif, Eid Milad, and Milad-un-Nabi. The significance of this month lies in the blessings of the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW). Muslims all around the world celebrate this day with religious zeal and fervor.

They embellish streets, mosques, shrines, and residential areas with radiant lights. Sweets, food, and other dishes are also served to the celebrants on this auspicious occasion. Muslim offer prayers, sung poetry, and naats in the praise of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) on this day. It is believed that the listeners and reciters get divine rewards.

The primary aim behind the celebrations and joy is to remember and follow the character traits and teachings of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Believers of the holy Prophet show their love and devotion to the Prophet by celebrating this day to the fullest. This significant day is started by offering Namaz and taking part in ritualistic customs.

The most important message given by Prophet Muhammad is the message of love, peace, mercy, sacrifice, human dignity, diversity, dialogue, and coexistence. By observing this occasion, Muslims get reminded of the messages of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

History of Eid-Milad un Nabi

The history of Eid Milad dates back to the time when the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) came into this world in Makkah in 570 CE. However, Eid Mawlid gained popularity in the 8th century when Khalifa Harun-al-Rashid’s mother Al-Khizuran converted the house of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) into a prayer hall.

Although, then the day was observed differently than today. In the 11th century, Egypt’s leading clan used to celebrate the day of Mawlid. Moving forward to the 12th century, the custom of commemorating the birth of Prophet Muhammad was started in countries like Turkey, Morocco, Syria, and Spain. Later on, this religious festival becomes a day of celebration in the whole Muslim world.

What is 12th Rabi ul Awwal?

12 Rabi ul Awwal marks the birth of the beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). It’s one of the auspicious days for Muslims to realize that Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) was sent for reformations. Therefore, they need to follow his reforms and teachings. It is a day of remembrance for all Muslims to spend their lives devotedly, according to the Sunnah of the beloved Prophet (PBUH). As it is a fact that success and progress in this world and the hereafter can only be achieved by following the teaching of the last Prophet.

They also distribute food to people to bring happiness to the Ummah. Muslim parents narrate stories of the Prophet Muhammad’s life to their kids.

The main significance behind the commemorations of the birth anniversary of the prophet is to spread the message of Islam and educate the populous about the teachings of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). It also aims to remind the Muslims about the character, his way of worshipping, and spending a successful life.

Alongside, Muslims decorate their homes, and mosques and donate to the poor. As charity and Zakat hold a special place in Islam and it is considered highly rewarding deed, especially on Eid Milad un Nabi.

Here is a translation of the verse where the Quran has stated the importance of sending Salawat to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH):

“Allah and His angels bless the Prophet. Believers invoke blessings and peace on him.” (Al-Ahzab: 33: 56)

Al-Isra Wal-Miraj also called the Night of Miraj and Shab-e-Miraj. This night (the night of Miraj) describes one of the most amazing and miraculous experiences that Allah bestowed upon Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).


The Prophet (PBUH ) went on this amazing journey at a time when he was going through a very painful moment. As Allah tested him by taking two beloved people from his life.


The Prophet (PBUH) was awakened by Angel Jibra’eel (as), who then took him to a white beast named “Buraq” and started the journey to Masjid Al-Aqsa.


During this miraculous journey, Jibra’eel (as) stopped the Buraq and told our beloved Prophet (SAW) to pray at many locations in order to emphasize the significance of going to the locations where Allah (SWT) bestowed His bounties upon His pious people.


Prophet prayed at Mount Sinai, where Allah revealed the Torah, at Musa’s grave (as), and at Bethlehem, where Jesus/Isa (as) was born.


He also stopped and prayed next to the tree where Allah spoke to Musa.


When the Prophet (PBUH) finally arrived at Masjid al-Aqsa, he was told that every Prophet sent by Allah from the time of Adam to the time of Isa had been brought to pray behind him so that they may recognize the greatness of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).


History and Significance of Shab e Meraj


The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and the Archangel Gabriel ascend Al Buraq during Shab e Meraj, also known as Lailat al Miraj or “The Night of Ascension,” from Masjid Al-Haram in Makkah to Masjid Al-Haram Al-Aqsa.


Angel Gabriel joined Prophet Muhammad (SAW) when he made a few stops at significant Muslim historical sites.


Prophet Adam (AS), Prophet Abraham (AS), Prophet Moses (AS), Prophet Jesus (AS), and other prophets met Prophet Muhammad (SAW) in the seven stages of heaven before they arrived at Masjid Al-Aqsa.


Prophet Muhammad (SAW) received the order for five daily prayers from Allah SWT as he ascended to the highest level of heaven, where the Throne of Allah (Al-Arsh) was.


This highlights the significance of the event because the five daily prayers are the most important action that all Muslims are required to perform each and every day.

Hadith e Rasool SAW On Miraj


Hazrat Aisha (RA) reported: “After the Prophet (PBUH) was miraculously taken by night to the furthest mosque in Jerusalem, he awoke and told the people about it. Some of them renounced their faith and belief in him.


They sought Hazrat Abu Bakr (RA) and they said, “Have you heard that your friend imagined he was taken by night to the sacred house?” Abu Bakr (RA) said, “Did he say that?” They said yes. Abu Bakr (RA) said, “If he said it, he has spoken the truth.”

They said, “Do you believe he went by night to the sacred house and returned before morning?” Abu Bakr (RA) said, “Yes. Verily, I believe what is even more astonishing than that. I believe he has received messages from heaven for everything he does.” For this reason, Hazrat Abu Bakr (RA) was named the Truthful, al-Siddiq.”

How is Shab e Meraj celebrated by Muslims?


Muslims consider Shab e Meraj to be one of the pivotal moments in Islamic history. That is why it is recognized as a national holiday in several Muslim nations so that people can take the day off to observe it. To celebrate it, each Muslim community has its own traditions and rituals.


Muslim families would set up some nice decorations around the neighborhood with candles and twinkling lights to brighten up the neighborhood at night. They would also serve various delicious meals and sweets to their families as they celebrate it.


Some people would spend the whole night listening to the lecture about the story of Shab e Meraj from the ulema at the mosque. Some elders in the community would also share some life stories of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) with the children after they recite the night prayers.

Final Thoughts


We all need to celebrate this day by reflecting on the lessons of Shab-e-Miraj, following the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), doing more worship, and doing good deeds. Doing charity and donating is one of the great practices that every Muslim should do this day. Rajab is the month of Allah when you should do pious deeds more and more to get divine rewards.


You can multiply these divine rewards by learning the Holy Quran in the month of Rajab, especially in Shab-e-Miraj. So, turn to Quran Focus to start your Quran learning journey.

New Hijri year – How faith served the Prophet to reach Medina

As the new Hijri year begins, Muslims are reminded about the migration of the Prophet and to observe the memory of harmony, altruism and unity between the Muhajireen (migrants) and Ansar (supporters).

After the message of Allah was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed, he stayed in Mecca to preach Islam and reach out to tribes and envoys.

“But he found little support and endorsement. Instead he was severely harmed, yet he remained patient until Allah, the most High, awarded Him with Ansars who embraced Islam before they went back to Medina,” explains the sermon.

“Then Allah, may Glory be to Him, authorized His Messenger to start the journey to Medina, a call that his followers answered without hesitation.”

As the Prophet himself waited in Mecca until he received the order from Allah, Quraish tribes plotted to kill him.

They agreed to have a member of each tribe participate in the killing so his blood would be distributed between them, and thus whoever wanted to avenge him would have to face all the tribes.

Allah says in the Quran: “And [remember, O Muhammad], when those who disbelieved plotted against you to restrain you or kill you or evict you [from Makkah]. But they plan, and Allah plans. And Allah is the best of planners.

“As He promised, Allah saved his Apostle, who went out from Mecca before their enemies’ eyes, but their sight was momentarily taken away,” continues the sermon.

“He took a handful of dust and started pouring it on their heads, while reciting this verse: ‘And We have put before them a barrier and behind them a barrier and covered them, so they do not see’.”

He walked with his companion, Abu Bakr, at night until they reached the cave of Thawr and took refuge in it.

In the meantime, Quraish had left no stone unturned to find him until they reached the Cave gate and stood by there.

At that point, Abu Bakr told the Prophet: “Allah’s Messenger, if one amongst them were to see at his feet he would have surely seen us.”

Prophet Mohammed replied: “What can befall two who have Allah as the third One with them.”

A Quranic verse was revealed about this incident that says: “If you do not aid the Prophet – Allah has already aided him when those who disbelieved had driven him out [of Makkah] as one of two, when they were in the cave and he said to his companion, ‘Do not grieve; indeed Allah is with us.’

“And Allah sent down his tranquility upon him and supported him with angels you did not see and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowest, while the word of Allah – that is the highest. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.”

After three days of staying at the cave, they were able to leave Mecca for Medina.
