If You Can Read You Can Do Anything

What would you do if you could read minds?

Become the best business person in the world.Think of it, you are a salesperson and by reading their mind you can tell everything that’s going on in their heads. If they have doubts or questions that they will not verbalize I can bring it into conversation to ease the thoughts. I can also tell what their absolute top dollar they are willing to spend (if buying) or the lowest they are willing to take (if selling).You can also figure out in a merger if there is any unseen or unspoken problems they have and will not disclose. You have all the cards visible and all the leverage.That is what I would do. Plus you know you can always see if that cute girl is into you!

What if you can't read Quran during Ramadan?

Read the Quran in your language its not the real Quran but many have already answered which is the best translations they found for many languages. So do a search up top to version of language you want in the search bar.

20 pages a day is all that is asked if you wish to have infinate protection and blessings from Allah SWT in great mercy and guidance inshAllah amin.
Next year will be your 2nd and Al hamdoullah then your 3rd and so on. Start reading now, that way you will be done the translation before you go in for Ramadan.
If you are doing Halaqa you just ask to pass to the next person to recite those verses, or you ask if you can read them in your language.

You can read Quran, its in your language. Is would be the meaning.
You can join in Salat Tarweeh at the mosque and have the Hafiz Imam recite the whole thing for you. That is also acceptable.

brother below me. Reverts are dedicated more than any born muslim I ever met Al hamdoullah, let him take the longest road possible that will give him the most reward here and there. Salam When it comes to Quran you can't get enough so long is fine! For those who can stand it of course! I don't mean that all can do it, but those men in the front, they are in the front for a reason! Al hamdoullah

Do reading books make you smarter?

Well, you should never read books solely for the purpose of 'getting smarter'. They are to be enjoyed and treasured, to expand your horizons, or make you think, etc. If you are only keen on reading a book to boost your intelligence, it might not work.

EDIT: I suggest Classics though, they are very thought-provoking, highly enjoyable, and you'll be prepared for English class. I would recommend Charles Dickens, James Joyce, Herman Melville, Henry David Thoreau, etc.

What is the best sura/dua you can read for something you really need?

It was narrated by Narrated by Uqba ibn Amir (R.A):“When one, out of two persons of my Ummah gets up at night and motivates himself for Wudhu despite not feeling to do so since, Shaytaan had tied knots on him. When he washes his two hands in Wudhu, one knot is loosened, when he washes his face, another knot is loosened when he wipes his head with wet hands another knot is loosened, when he washes his feet yet another knot is loosened. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says to those behind the veil- His angels: “Look at My slaves! How much hardship he is enduring in dealing with his Nafs (inner self), so now whatever this slave asks of Me, it will be granted to him.”This discus the degree of importance of the Night Prayer, which is the greatest among all of the rest of Nafl (non obligatory) worships and also the cause of getting Allah`s great Blessings and Mercy.—Zohzaar!

I can’t focus on reading. I don’t remember what I’ve just read. What can I do?

I am a professional reader who has taught how to read hard books in philosophy and literature at the college level for over 20 years.Inability to focus on or retain what has been read is a common problem with students.In fact, I sometimes have this problem myself, and I know other professors do, too.I believe the fundamental problem here is sleepy passivity. If one reads passively, then one has trouble remaining actively engaged with the material.Professional readers know how to address this problem .Grab a pen or a pencil. (Pen is better than pencil, because less passive.)Boldly write all over the pages you are reading.Insert your own parentheses to make it easier to follow complex sentences. Circle words, especially unusual ones or ones that are repeated. Draw in arrows connecting one circled word to another; draw your lines right through the printed page. Write your own questions, comments, or punctuation marks (!?) in the margins. Count items as they appear. Add corresponding numbers in the margins when there is a list of things in the text. Note allusions to or differences with other books or authors. Sketch out the author’s arguments in your own words (with your counter-arguments or supporting arguments). Copy out definitions of words you don’t know (having looked them up, all of them).In short, use that pen to engage yourself actively in a written conversation with your author.When you are finished, the pages of your book will no longer look like everyone else’s pages. Nor will they seem like something that has been skimmed over passively. Your book will bear your own markings. These markings are a record of your active engagement. You cannot do this while asleep.This is a start on how to read actively. Try it and see if you don’t retain much more.By the way, some things are required for this technique.One is that you must actually own the books you read and abandon any idea of selling them back at the end of the semester. (You won’t be able to sell them, because they will be filled with your own markings.) This is a small price to pay for really reading a book worth your time.Also, you must possess the mindset of someone who is willing to mark up a book. This means seeing the book as a vehicle, a tool for thinking, as something that is properly to be used as such, not as an idol to be revered and left untouched.I hope this helps.

Do you think we can achieve anything in life if we work very hard for it?

No.Hard work by itself accomplishes very little. No matter how hard you try, if you attempt to destroy a wall by headbutting it, you will end only with a massive headache.Do not make only an effort, but direct it. Think of ways to save time when making efforts. Effort is important, I am not denying that, but you also need the smarts to know when and where to apply said effort and work, boundaries so that no one takes advantage unfairly of your hard work and the intelligence to come up with new, creative ways to work on your subject.I personally like the word workmanlike, because it describes a very common way of thinking, someone who works very hard but without inspiration.There are two types of languages students for example: the lazy ones, the workmanlike ones, and the wild card ones.The first type never learn anything, because they do not put in the effort. The workmanlike ones attend academies year after year and go through their qualifications progressing slow and steady.The wild cards are the fun ones. They come out of nowhere, knowing a lot more than any of the workmanlike students. They read things online, read books, speak to interesting people online and in real life, learn the language almost intuitively.And they succeed with a much higher rate than a workmanlike person. They work hard but they also know that effort alone does not accomplish things, the next step of mastery in a subject is to not follow your teacher but to learn on your own and decide what is important and is not.

What does it mean if you can read upside down?

Simply it means that your brain is able to work fast, so you can read upside down. That's why you can read upside down clean :-)
