The Qur’an is the book of Allah (swt) and the most beautiful and correct of all words. It is our source of healing, guide to salvation, and means of the mercy of Allah (swt) for us that leads us to the right path. In this regard, it is stated in one verse as follows, “O mankind! There has come to you instruction from your Lord and healing for what is in the breasts and guidance and mercy for the believers.” 
Right! The Holy Qur’an is a unique address by the Almighty Allah (swt) to bring people out of the darkness of unbelief and into the light of guidance. It is a voice and sigh of relief from al-Rahman that provides ease for our overwhelmed hearts. It is the most valuable entrustment the Prophet Muhammad (saw) left for his ummah.
Reciting, correctly understanding, and duly living up to the Holy Qur’an should be the primary purpose of our life. Enabling our children, who are the light of our eyes, to meet with the spiritual climate of the Qur’an and teaching our children its messages as well as what it regards halal and haram should be our greatest ideal. Let us not forget that our children each are entrustment to us from the Almighty Allah (swt). We can look out for this rare entrustment in the best way only through raising them in the guidance of the Qur’an and the Sunnah.
I would like to conclude this Friday’s khutbah with the following hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (saw), “The best among you is the one who learns the Qur’an and teaches it.”
 Tirmidhi, Fadhail al-Qur’an, 15.
