Believe – A Journal Review

believe cover

Summary: …a raw list…of the rules, obligations, guidelines, regulations, orders, directives, instructions (or however you’d like to perceive them) derived from the 114 chapters, 6,236 verses and 77,449 words in the Quran – the Holy Islamic book.

Review: Believe is 34 pages long. I thought it was about what to do and not do with the Quran. But Believe is a simple journal filled with Quranic verses to help the believer live and act by golden rules.

It can definitely be useful when looking for a quick Quranic verse to support a point because the book is divided into 5 easy categories:»»worship »»character»»giving & taking»»relationships »»eating & dressing. In the last section, I found it a bit peculiar that there is a lot of stress on Quran (24:31); I mean the verse is mentioned three times. It would have been better if Quran (33:35) was also added to balance out things. Even adding Quran (24:30) would have worked too. That said, the »relationships » part before the last part helps into smoothing things out because men’s duties are also highlighted.

Moreover, Believe can be used as a reflective tool. Having read the whole transliterated version of the Quran myself and working on reading the whole Arabic version, I recommend using Believe in addition of this short guide titled The 5 R’s of Tadabbur al-Qur’an: A Family Halaqah Guide by Umm Afraz Muhammed. Muhammed’s short guide is about sixteen pages including front and back covers. It’s also an easy and simple read. Check it out here.
