The Quran

The Quran is a religious textbook in Islam. In Islam, we read the Quran to get closer to God.  My family told me about the Quran. Each of them had a different role in teaching and letting me know the history behind it.  My grandfather who recently passed away gave me a Quran which meant a lot to me because, in Islam, grandparents are a major part of Muslim families. Seen as the head of the household, they're encouraged to live with the rest of the family so they can be loved and share in their grandchildren's lives. Ramadan is one of the major holidays in Islam because fasting defines a Muslim, show compassion for those in need, reap the benefits of the Night of Power, and seek forgiveness for past sins, after breaking your fast you pray with your family or community in your local Masjid the sound of the recites of the Quran is beautiful some even cry, knowing what the word meaning is because it is in Arabic. In addition, this connects to my identity and culture because the Quran taught me a lot with a little clarification from my grandparents like how to help people in need give out not a lot of people are in the same position as you so be blessed that you here before and after consciences, and how the Day of Judgment will look like. This Quran is important to me because my grandfather wanted me to be the best I can be as a human being and I'm not letting him down because the Quran will guide me.
