The Message of the Quran covers all aspects of life, it teaches Muslims how to be better Muslims, how to interact with others, how to worship Allah, and more.

 The holy Quran is the word of Allah that was revealed to our beloved Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). It is a source of light, and guidance, leading to a better life through its many teachings and lessons. The Quranic verses cover topics like morality, worship, justice, empathy, and many other topics.

The main message of the Quran can be summarized into the following points:

  1. The concept of Monotheism (Tawhid): the word Tawhid refers to worship only one God and he is Allah. a Muslim can’t associate any other gods or partners with Allah. Allah is the only God, he is the one who created humans and earth. this can be understood from the verses of surah al Ikhlas, Allah almighty says:

قُلْ هُوَ ٱللَّهُ أَحَدٌ ١ ٱللَّهُ ٱلصَّمَدُ ٢

Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “He is Allah—One and Indivisible˺;

ٱللَّهُ ٱلصَّمَدُ ٢

Allah—the Sustainer ˹needed by all˺.

لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ ٣

He has never had offspring, nor was He born.

وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُۥ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌۢ ٤

And there is none comparable to Him.” [surah Al-Ikhlas]

  1. Islam: the word Islam refers to submission to God, worshiping him, following his guidance and teachings, and accepting our fates and Allah’s will. A person will be at peace if he accepts that everything happens for a reason and that Allah holds the best for us.
  1. Morality and Ethics: the holy Quran shows Muslims how to be better Muslims by adhering to the ethical guidelines and the morals of a good Muslim. Allah orders us to be kind, help one another, be honest, and patient, have justice, compassion, patience, and how to be a human.  
  1. Social life: The message of the Quran also shows Muslims how to treat others with kindness and compassion. For instance, it shows us how to treat family members, humans, and people of different beliefs, it covers topics like social interactions, social responsibilities, relationships, and business.
  1. Hereafter: the holy Quran sheds light on the day of judgment, and shows us how everyone will be held accountable for his actions. The believers will be rewarded for their good deeds and the disbelievers will be punished for their bad deeds. Whatever we do in life we will be judged for it, therefore, Muslims strive to be better in order to be among the good people in the afterlife.
  1. Prophets and Messengers: the holy Quran instructs Muslims to believe in all the prophets and messengers. The Quranic verses discuss several stories of the prophets and lessons for us to learn from. Some of the prophets mentioned are Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus.
  1. The Quran is a universal Message for all times and places: the holy Quran has a solution for all life matters not is a specific period of time or a specific group of people, it works for all times and for everyone. Regardless of race, color, religion, or gender, we are all equal and should respect and love one another.

These were some of the main points discussed in the holy Quran. The Quran is a divine message from Allah Almighty that is meant to guide us and prevent us from straying. Now let’s take dig a bit deeper into the teachings of the Quran, its Islamic values, and more.

Those were just some of the fundamental beliefs taught by the Quran. the message of the Quran includes many topics and teachings that are more than we can count. People who memorize the Quran can learn from its teachings and apply its lessons. Therefore, we should strive to do our best to learn the Quran and reflect upon its verses.

The Message of the Quran for Self Discipline:

The holy Quran teaches us how to behave ourselves and strive to be better Muslims. This is done by following the teachings of the Quran and staying away from committing sins. As human beings, we make mistakes and sometimes commit sins but it is our role to repent to Allah and keep ourselves from repeating anything that displeases Allah.

A person shouldn’t follow his desires, instead, he should worship Allah and do what pleases him. That’s why self-discipline is important and it is one of the main topics included in the message of the Quran. reciting the verses of the Quran helps us purify our hearts and minds because it reminds us that this life is nothing but a test and that we should work hard for the afterlife. Yes, it is not easy especially when we are surrounded by life’s pleasures but we should remind ourselves that this is a test, Allah is testing our faith and we shouldn’t fail that test.    

Allah Almighty says in the holy Quran:

وَ أَمَّا مَنْ خافَ مَقامَ رَبِّهِ وَ نَهَى النَّفْسَ عَنِ الْهَوى‏ فَإِنَّ الْجَنَّةَ هِيَ الْمَأْوى‏

And as for those who were in awe of standing before their Lord and restrained themselves from ˹evil˺ desires,

فَإِنَّ ٱلْجَنَّةَ هِىَ ٱلْمَأْوَىٰ ٤١

Paradise will certainly be their home.” [surah An-Nazi’at, 40: 41]

يَـٰدَاوُۥدُ إِنَّا جَعَلْنَـٰكَ خَلِيفَةًۭ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ فَٱحْكُم بَيْنَ ٱلنَّاسِ بِٱلْحَقِّ وَلَا تَتَّبِعِ ٱلْهَوَىٰ فَيُضِلَّكَ عَن سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ يَضِلُّونَ عَن سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌۭ شَدِيدٌۢ بِمَا نَسُوا۟ يَوْمَ ٱلْحِسَابِ ٢٦

˹We instructed him:˺ “O David! We have surely made you an authority in the land, so judge between people with truth. And do not follow your desires or they will lead you astray from Allah’s Way. Surely those who go astray from Allah’s Way will suffer a severe punishment for neglecting the Day of Reckoning.” [surah Sad, 26]

يا أَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنُوا كُونُوا قَوَّامينَ بِالْقِسْطِ شُهَداءَ لِلَّهِ وَ لَوْ عَلى‏ أَنْفُسِكُمْ أَوِ الْوالِدَيْنِ وَ الْأَقْرَبينَ إِنْ يَكُنْ غَنِيًّا أَوْ فَقيراً فَاللَّهُ أَوْلى‏ بِهِما فَلا تَتَّبِعُوا الْهَوى‏ أَنْ تَعْدِلُوا وَ إِنْ تَلْوُوا أَوْ تُعْرِضُوا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ كانَ بِما تَعْمَلُونَ خَبيراً

“O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allāh, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allāh is more worthy of both.1 So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allāh is ever, of what you do, Aware.” [surah Nisa, 135]

From the above verses, Allah instructs us to fear him, worship him, follow his teachings, and accept his will. Also, we are told to do our best to stay away from what is wrong and try to do only good. Therefore, self-discipline is an important part of the message of the Quran.

Acknowledging our mistakes is the right path toward correcting them and trying to be better. When we acknowledge that what we did is wrong it means that we are aware of ourselves and what we are doing, all that is left is not to go back to it and repent to Allah. the problem is when a person does bad things and commits mistakes and thinks that he didn’t do anything wrong. When doing something wrong and we are aware of it we should try to change ourselves for the better. 

Allah Almighty says in the holy Quran:

لَهُۥ مُعَقِّبَـٰتٌۭ مِّنۢ بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِۦ يَحْفَظُونَهُۥ مِنْ أَمْرِ ٱللَّهِ ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّىٰ يُغَيِّرُوا۟ مَا بِأَنفُسِهِمْ ۗ وَإِذَآ أَرَادَ ٱللَّهُ بِقَوْمٍۢ سُوٓءًۭا فَلَا مَرَدَّ لَهُۥ ۚ وَمَا لَهُم مِّن دُونِهِۦ مِن وَالٍ ١١

“For each one there are successive angels before and behind, protecting them by Allah’s command. Indeed, Allah would never change a people’s state of favour˺ until they change their own state ˹of faith˺. And if it is Allah’s Will to torment a people, it can never be averted, nor can they find a protector other than Him.” [Al-Ra’d 13:11]

When trying our best to become better versions of ourselves Allah will help us along the way. Remember, on the day of judgment every man is responsible for himself, no one will take responsibility for your actions, so, do your best to be among the people who will enter Jannah.

Allah Almighty says in the holy Quran:

إِن كُلُّ مَن فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ إِلَّآ ءَاتِى ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنِ عَبْدًۭا ٩٣

There is none in the heavens or the earth who will not return to the Most Compassionate in full submission.

لَّقَدْ أَحْصَىٰهُمْ وَعَدَّهُمْ عَدًّۭا ٩٤

Indeed, He fully knows them and has counted them precisely.

وَكُلُّهُمْ ءَاتِيهِ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَـٰمَةِ فَرْدًا ٩٥

And each of them will return to Him on the Day of Judgment all alone.” [Surah Maryam, 93:95]

Self-discipline in Islam

How can a person benefit from the message of the Quran to Self-discipline himself? Here are some ways to do so:

Worship Allah, follow his guidance and teachings, pray, recite Dua, fast, give out Zakat and Sadaqat, help the ones in need, and try to do what is good.

Recite the verses of the Quran and reflect upon their verses, try your best to understand its verses and learn from them.

Return to Allah when committing sins or making mistakes, repent to him, ask for his forgiveness, and try not to do the same sin again.

Stay with the people who help you do what is good and stay away from the people who encourage you to disobey Allah.

Implement the teachings of the Quran in your daily life.

Always have faith in Allah and rely on him.

Despising yourself for not doing enough for the sake of Allah. This does not contradict the things

In what ways does the Quran provide moral guidance?

The holy Quran is filled with many lessons, and stories to teach us how to deal with our life’s problems. Not just that, the message of the Quran also teaches us how to worship Allah, how to pray, how to live our lives, and only do what is good. From the Quran we learn that we are all the same, to respect one another, not to mock others or hurt other people’s feelings, and how to be successful in our lives.  

What teachings promote compassion and empathy in the Quran?

We learn from the message of the Quran that Empathy is the key to being kind to others. The Quran shows us the importance of empathy as Allah says in the holy Quran:

وَمَآ أَرْسَلْنَـٰكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةًۭ لِّلْعَـٰلَمِينَ ١٠٧

 “We have sent you ˹O Prophet˺ only as a mercy for the whole world.” (Quran 21:107).

The above verse shows that our beloved prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was sent as a role model in empathy not just to humans but to all creatures and the environment.

Ibn Umar reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), said, “The most beloved people to Allah are those who are most beneficial to people. The most beloved deed to Allah is to make a Muslim happy, remove one of his troubles, forgive his debt, or feed his hunger. That I walk with a brother regarding a need is more beloved to me than that I seclude myself in this mosque in Medina for a month. Whoever swallows his anger, then Allah will conceal his faults. Whoever suppresses his rage, even though he could fulfill his anger if he wished, then Allah will secure his heart on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever walks with his brother regarding a need until he secures it for him, then Allah Almighty will make his footing firm across the bridge on the day when the footings are shaken.” [al-Mu’jam al-Awsaṭ lil-Ṭabarānī 6026, Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Al-Albani]

عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ أَحَبُّ النَّاسِ إِلَى اللَّهِ أَنْفَعُهُمْ لِلنَّاسِ وَأَحَبُّ الأَعْمَالِ إِلَى اللَّهِ سُرُورٌ تُدْخِلُهُ عَلَى مُسْلِمٍ أَوْ تَكْشِفُ عَنْهُ كُرْبَةً أَوْ تَقْضِي عَنْهُ دِينًا أَوْ تَطْرُدُ عَنْهُ جُوعًا وَلَأَنْ أَمْشِيَ مَعَ أَخٍ لِي فِي حَاجَةٍ أَحَبُّ إِلَيَّ مِنْ أَنْ أَعْتَكِفَ فِي هَذَا الْمَسْجِدِ يَعْنِي مَسْجِدَ الْمَدِينَةِ شَهْرًا وَمَنْ كَفَّ غَضَبَهُ سَتَرَ اللَّهُ عَوْرَتَهُ وَمَنْ كَظَمَ غَيْظَهُ وَلَوْ شَاءَ أَنْ يُمْضِيَهُ أَمْضَاهُ مَلأَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ قَلْبَهُ أَمْنًا يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَمَنْ مَشَى مَعَ أَخِيهِ فِي حَاجَةٍ حَتَّى أَثْبَتَهَا لَهُ أَثْبَتَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ قَدَمَهُ عَلَى الصِّرَاطِ يَوْمَ تَزِلُّ فِيهِ الأَقْدَامُ

It was narrated from Anas bin Malik that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: ‘None of you truly believes until he loves for his brother” or he said “for his neighbor, what he loves for himself.” [Grade: Sahih (Darussalam), Sunan Ibn Majah 66, Introduction, Hadith 66]

From the message of the Quran, we learn that all humans are equals regardless of religion, faith, culture, color, social status, or gender, we are all the same and we should respect one another. 

Allah Almighty says in the holy Quran:

يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَـٰكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍۢ وَأُنثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَـٰكُمْ شُعُوبًۭا وَقَبَآئِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوٓا۟ ۚ إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ أَتْقَىٰكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌۭ ١٣

“O humanity! Indeed, We created you from a male and a female and made you into peoples and tribes so that you may get to know one another. Surely the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous among you. Allah is truly All-Knowing, All-Aware.” (Quran 49:13).

The Message of the Quran in Worship:

Allah tells us in the holy Quran that we should only worship him alone.

Allah Almighty says in the holy Quran:

قُلْ هُوَ ٱللَّهُ أَحَدٌ ١ ٱللَّهُ ٱلصَّمَدُ ٢ لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ ٣ وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُۥ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌۢ ٤

Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “He is Allah—One and Indivisible˺; Allah—the Sustainer needed by all˺. He has never had offspring, nor was He born. And there is none comparable to Him.” [surah Al-Ikhlas]

Let’s learn more about the teachings of the holy Quran regarding worshiping Allah.

What does the Quran teach about prayer and worship?

From the message of the Quran, we learn to pray, to fast, to read Azkar, to make Dua, to recite the Quran, and to help the ones in need.

Allah says in the Quran:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا ارْكَعُوا وَاسْجُدُوا وَاعْبُدُوا رَبَّكُمْ وَافْعَلُوا الْخَيْرَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ ۩ ﴿77﴾

O believers! Bow down, prostrate yourselves, worship your Lord, and do what is good so that you may be successful.” [surah Hajj: 77]

Praying is one of the five pillars of Islam and it is obligatory for every capable Muslim. There are five daily prayers in Islam and they all should be prayed.

Allah says in the Quran:

فَإِذَا قَضَيْتُمُ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ فَٱذْكُرُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ قِيَـٰمًۭا وَقُعُودًۭا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِكُمْ ۚ فَإِذَا ٱطْمَأْنَنتُمْ فَأَقِيمُوا۟ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ ۚ إِنَّ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ كَانَتْ عَلَى ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ كِتَـٰبًۭا مَّوْقُوتًۭا ١٠٣

“When the prayers are over, remember Allah—whether you are standing, sitting, or lying down. But when you are secure, establish regular prayers. Indeed, performing prayers is a duty on the believers at the appointed times.” [surah Nisa: 103]

Allah says in the Quran:

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اعْبُدُوا رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُمْ وَالَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ ﴿21﴾

“O humanity! Worship your Lord, Who created you and those before you, so that you may become mindful of Him˺.” [Surah Al-Baqarah: 21]

From the message of the Quran, we learn how to worship Allah, how to perform Wudu, prayer, Tayamum, and more.

ٱتْلُ مَآ أُوحِىَ إِلَيْكَ مِنَ ٱلْكِتَـٰبِ وَأَقِمِ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ ۖ إِنَّ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ تَنْهَىٰ عَنِ ٱلْفَحْشَآءِ وَٱلْمُنكَرِ ۗ وَلَذِكْرُ ٱللَّهِ أَكْبَرُ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَصْنَعُونَ ٤٥

“Recite what has been revealed to you of the Book and establish prayer. Indeed, ˹genuine˺ prayer should deter ˹one˺ from indecency and wickedness. The remembrance of Allah is ˹an˺ even greater ˹deterrent˺. And Allah fully knows what you ˹all˺ do.” [Surah Ankabut, 45]

Praying cleans the heart and mind of a Muslim, it helps him refrain from doing what is wrong and committing mistakes.

Allah says in the Quran:

۞ وَٱعْبُدُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَلَا تُشْرِكُوا۟ بِهِۦ شَيْـًۭٔا ۖ وَبِٱلْوَٰلِدَيْنِ إِحْسَـٰنًۭا وَبِذِى ٱلْقُرْبَىٰ وَٱلْيَتَـٰمَىٰ وَٱلْمَسَـٰكِينِ وَٱلْجَارِ ذِى ٱلْقُرْبَىٰ وَٱلْجَارِ ٱلْجُنُبِ وَٱلصَّاحِبِ بِٱلْجَنۢبِ وَٱبْنِ ٱلسَّبِيلِ وَمَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَـٰنُكُمْ ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ مَن كَانَ مُخْتَالًۭا فَخُورًا ٣٦

Worship Allah alone and associate none with Him. And be kind to parents, relatives, orphans, the poor, near and distant neighbors, close friends, ˹needy˺ travelers, and that ˹bondspeople˺ in your possession. Surely Allah does not like whoever is arrogant, boastful” [surah Nisa: 36]

Allah instructs us to worship only him and not to associate any gods with him. Allah is the creator of heaven and earth, he created us all and everything that surrounds us.

What does the Quran teach about the concept of the afterlife?

From the message of the Quran, we learn about the afterlife and the day of judgment.

Allah Almighty said in the holy Quran:

وَبَشِّرِ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ أَنَّ لَهُمْ جَنَّـٰتٍۢ تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهَا ٱلْأَنْهَـٰرُ ۖ كُلَّمَا رُزِقُوا۟ مِنْهَا مِن ثَمَرَةٍۢ رِّزْقًۭا ۙ قَالُوا۟ هَـٰذَا ٱلَّذِى رُزِقْنَا مِن قَبْلُ ۖ وَأُتُوا۟ بِهِۦ مُتَشَـٰبِهًۭا ۖ وَلَهُمْ فِيهَآ أَزْوَٰجٌۭ مُّطَهَّرَةٌۭ ۖ وَهُمْ فِيهَا خَـٰلِدُونَ ٢٥

“Give good news ˹O Prophet˺ to those who believe and do good that they will have Gardens under which rivers flow. Whenever provided with fruit, they will say, “This is what we were given before,” for they will be served fruit that looks similar but tastes different˺. They will have pure spouses, and they will be there forever.” (2:25).

To enter paradise a person must believe in Allah, worship him, obey him, follow the teachings of Allah and the prophet. a person must strive to please Allah, do good deeds, and help the ones in need to be rewarded with paradise.

Allah Almighty says in the Quran:

وَٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَرْسَلَ ٱلرِّيَـٰحَ فَتُثِيرُ سَحَابًۭا فَسُقْنَـٰهُ إِلَىٰ بَلَدٍۢ مَّيِّتٍۢ فَأَحْيَيْنَا بِهِ ٱلْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ ٱلنُّشُورُ ٩

“And it is Allah Who sends the winds, which then stir up ˹vapour, forming clouds, and then We drive them to a lifeless land, giving life to the earth after its death. Similar is the Resurrection.” (Quran 35: 9).

As Muslims we believe in the life after death that is why we strive to please Allah. knowing that this life is only a test and that we shouldn’t lose ourselves to life’s pleasures and the whispers of the devil. 

Here is the description of paradise in the Quran:

وَجَزَىٰهُم بِمَا صَبَرُوا۟ جَنَّةًۭ وَحَرِيرًۭا ١٢

and reward them for their perseverance with a Garden ˹in Paradise˺ and ˹garments of˺ silk.

مُّتَّكِـِٔينَ فِيهَا عَلَى ٱلْأَرَآئِكِ ۖ لَا يَرَوْنَ فِيهَا شَمْسًۭا وَلَا زَمْهَرِيرًۭا ١٣

There they will be reclining on ˹canopied˺ couches, never seeing scorching heat or bitter cold.1

وَدَانِيَةً عَلَيْهِمْ ظِلَـٰلُهَا وَذُلِّلَتْ قُطُوفُهَا تَذْلِيلًۭا ١٤

The Garden’s shade will be right above them, and its fruit will be made very easy to reach.

وَيُطَافُ عَلَيْهِم بِـَٔانِيَةٍۢ مِّن فِضَّةٍۢ وَأَكْوَابٍۢ كَانَتْ قَوَارِيرَا۠ ١٥

They will be waited on with silver vessels and cups of crystal—

قَوَارِيرَا۟ مِن فِضَّةٍۢ قَدَّرُوهَا تَقْدِيرًۭا ١٦

crystalline silver, filled precisely as desired.

وَيُسْقَوْنَ فِيهَا كَأْسًۭا كَانَ مِزَاجُهَا زَنجَبِيلًا ١٧

And they will be given a drink of pure wine˺ flavored with ginger

عَيْنًۭا فِيهَا تُسَمَّىٰ سَلْسَبِيلًۭا ١٨

from a spring there, called Salsabîl.

وَيَطُوفُ عَلَيْهِمْ وِلْدَٰنٌۭ مُّخَلَّدُونَ إِذَا رَأَيْتَهُمْ حَسِبْتَهُمْ لُؤْلُؤًۭا مَّنثُورًۭا ١٩

They will be waited on by eternal youths. If you saw them, you would think they were scattered pearls.

“O humanity! Indeed, We created you from a male and a female and made you into peoples and tribes so that you may get to know one another. Surely the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous among you. Allah is truly All-Knowing, All-Aware.” (Quran 49:13).

“O  believers! Be mindful of Allah, and say what is right.” [Quran 33:70]
