10 Instagram Accounts Inspiring Us to Quran Journal

by in Soul on 22nd October, 2020

Quran Journalling seems to be popping up a lot more on Instagram, with many of us combining our creativity with Quran study it cannot be a bad thing. It’s also a really simple way to get children and young adults to connect with the text. With children I find taking one ayah at a time the best approach and as an adult I find looking at key themes, surahs or concepts a good starting place.

We’ve curated a few Instagam images of the variations and approaches to Quran Journalling below which can contribute to a deeper realtionship with the Quran. May Allah increase your connection and love of the Quran. Ameen

One of our writers Hiba Khan also interviewed owner of the account @faakihah as pictured in the first image below on her journey and approach to Quran Journalling.

In Surah Al-Furqan, it tells us a couple of qualities of true servants of Allah (verse 63-75), one of them being those who practise moderation. “Those who, when they spend, are not extravagant and not miserly, but hold a balance between those extremes.” – 25:67 Many times we try to justify our spending on expensive items, sometimes even taking loans or using credit to buy them. In the hadith it said Our Prophet, Nabi Muhammad (PBUH) was wary of loans. He used to make a lot of Du’a against incurring overburdening debts. اللَّهُمَّ اكْفِنِي بِحَلاَلِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ وَأَغْنِنِي بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ “O Allah, suffice me with that which is lawful against that which is prohibited and make me independent of all those besides You.” • In the Du’a we ask Allah SWT to help us pay off our debt using lawful and permissible avenues and not through impermissible resources. And to make us dependent on Allah and no one else. InshaaAllah we can all strive to become better Muslims if we spend responsibly and perform more sadaqah. – MS #quranjournalling #quranjournaling #quranjournal

Rezki is in Allah’s hand. Allah gives more to some and less to some. They’re only temporary for there’s more in the Herefafter. Surah Ar-Rad:26 They’re a test, regardless less or more. A test to allow us to return back to Him. May Allah grant us good Rezki, increase our iman and gratefulness and may those Rezki bring us to a better Hereafter. If you’re given easy rezki, say Alhamdulillah and make Infaq. You got a small taste of what is more to be provided in Jannah if you stay the course. If you’re in a situation of a hard rezki, sabar and if we’re sad, remember they’re usually only temporary happiness that we chase after. Seek for the better hereafter and ask from the One and Only. #quranjournal #quranjournalling #journal #selfreminders #islam #grateful
