Returning to the Quran   

The relationship between us and the Qur'an is undoubtedly of great importance; therefore, it is strange that it is this relationship which we often neglect.

I have a theory as to why we tend not to focus on the Qur'an: we are drawn towards controversy. The Qur'an and its sciences have no such divisive opinions. Human beings love controversy. I believe the reason we tend to argue back and forth regarding the same issues such as moon-sighting or eating zabiha is because these issues allow us to take a little bit of textbook knowledge and preside over people. It gives our nafs (lower self) a sense of satisfaction to 'beat' our opponent in arguments. The Qur'an however has no such arguments, because in reality who can argue over the minutiae of the prestigious science of tajweed (the art of reciting the Qur'an)? Or the qira'at (styles of Qur'anic recitation)?

Allah says in the Qur'an that the Messenger will have a complaint against his nation-meaning a complaint against us. This complaint will not be that the community prayed 20 rak`at instead of 8, or 8 instead of 10, it will be that the community missed the foundation of everything in the first place-the Qur'an.

The Month of the Quran  
Before it came to be known as the month of Fasting, the companions of the Prophet knew Ramadan as a month of the Quran, the last and ever lasting divine guidance to humanity. "The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Quran, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the Criterion (between right and wrong). So, whoever of you sights the month, he/she must observe fasts that month and whoever is ill or on a journey, the same number (of days which one did not observe fasts must be made up) from other days. Allah intends for you ease, and he does not want to make things difficult for you. He wants that you must complete the same number of days and that you must glorify Allah for having guided you so that you may be grateful to Him." (2:184).

The revelation began in the month of Ramadan. The night in which the Quran began to be revealed is referred in the Quran as the blessed night: We sent it (the Quran) down on a blessed night, (44:2) or the night of Decree, Verily, we have sent it (this Quran) down in the Night of Al-Qadr. (97:1). It was the strength, clarity, simplicity, and universality of the message that the night was described as an extraordinary night.
