Answer:

 

Biting Nails and Mistake while reciting the Quran

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your question: To err is human as the saying goes.We all have the practice of reciting the holy book the Koran.During the course of it,unknowingly what if one has read or pronounced a letter or letters wrongly.What should be done?

To err is human. is indeed a saying of this world, but the Messenger of Allah (saws) has termed a saying in his narration which is extremely beautiful and thought provoking, and a source of good news for the believers.

 

He (saws) said: All of you (mankind) are sinners! And the best (or most loved) of the sinners by Allah, are those who constantly seek forgiveness from Him.

 

If ones language is not Arabic, and he strives hard to learn and recite the Glorious Words of Allah to the best of his ability; and in the process makes a mistake or an error while reciting it; there is no harm or sin on him. In fact, our Lord is so Merciful, that He has promised such a person that He will give him a double reward. One reward for reciting the Glorious Quran; and one reward for striving to recite it correctly.

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.459 Narrated by Aisha, the wife of the Prophet (saws)

The Prophet (saws) said, "Such a person as recites the Qur'an and masters it by heart, will be with the noble righteous scribes (in Heaven). And such a person exerts himself to learn the Qur'an by heart, and recites it with great difficulty, will have a double reward."

Your question: I personally have a very bad habit of biting nails. Have tried avoiding to do it but do not have the will power for it. Is it bad? Does it effect my flow of finance?

The biting of the nails is indeed a bad habit, as it is extremely unhygienic and a source for diseases. But there is no sin in it; especially if one is trying to avoid this bad habit.

 

The biting of the nails in no way affects ones finance flows in any manner! This is a superstition of the pagans, and the believers, who sincerely believe in Allah and the Last Day, do no hold any superstitions at all. Our life, our property, our wealth, our death..everything; absolutely everything, is in the control of Allah Subhanah! No biting of any nails, or anything else in the world can affect the finances of a person for Allah Subhanah Alone is the Owner of everything in existence, and He bestows provisions on whoever He Wills.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Israa verse 30: Verily, thy Lord doth provide sustenance in abundance for whom He pleaseth, and He provideth in a just measure: for He doth know and regard all His servants.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 29 Surah Ankabut verse 62: Allah enlarges the sustenance (which He gives) to whichever of His servants He pleases; and He (similarly) grants by (strict) measure (as He pleases): for Allah has full knowledge of all things.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
