Recited by Sheikh Ahmed ibn Ali Al-Ajmi.
What chapter(s) and verses are included in Juz 3?:
The third juz of the Quran starts from verse 253 of the second chapter (Al Baqarah:253) and continues to verse 92 of the third chapter (Al Imran:92).
When were the verses of this juz revealed?:
The verses of this section were largely revealed in the early years after the migration to Madinah, as the Muslim community was setting up its first social and political center.
The parable of those who spend their wealth in the way of God is that of a grain of corn: It grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. God gives manifold increase to whom He pleases, and God cares for all and knows all things. 2:261
Behold! The angels said, Oh Mary! God gives you glad tidings of a Word from Him. His name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and in the Hereafter, and of the company of those nearest to God. 3:45
What is the main theme of this juz?:
Within the first few verses of this section is the famous Verse of the Throne (Ayat al-Kursi, 2:255). This verse is often memorized by Muslims, is seen adorning Muslim homes in calligraphy, and brings comfort to many. It offers a beautiful and concise description of Gods nature and attributes.
The remainder of Surah Al-Bakarah reminds believers that there is to be no compulsion in matters of religion. Parables are told of people who questioned Gods existence or were arrogant about their own importance on earth. Long passages are devoted to the subject of charity and generosity, calling people to humility and justice. It is here that usury/interest transactions are condemned, and guidelines for business transactions given. This longest chapter of the Quran ends with reminders about personal responsibility that everyone is responsible for themselves in matters of faith.
The third chapter of the Quran (Al Imran) then begins. This chapter is named for the family of Imran (the father of Mary, mother of Jesus). The chapter begins with the claim that this Quran confirms the messages of previous prophets and messengers of God it is not a new religion. One is reminded of the strict punishment facing unbelievers in the Hereafter, and the People of the Book (i.e. Jews and Christians) are called upon to recognize the truth that this revelation is a confirmation of what came before to their own prophets.
In verse 3:33, the story of the family of Imran begins telling the story of Zakariya, John the Baptist, Mary, and the birth of her son, Jesus Christ.

Make sure to check the end of the video for the english translation read by 4 year old students!
This is a video taken at the 2008 Sunflower Montessori Graduation Ceremony. The 3 and 4 year old students memorized all 99 names of Allah SWTA and were able to recite it in front of an audience including parents and friends! MashaAllah.
The Prophet (S) is reported to have said, Indeed, Allah has 99 names (one hundred minus one); whoever memorizes them will enter Paradise. [Bukhari and Muslim]. Ibn Al-Qayyim (RA) said, Knowledge of the Most Beautiful Names of Allah is the basis of all other kinds of knowledge, for the objects of all these other branches of knowledge were either created or commanded by Him. MashaAllah, at the young age of 3 and 4, these students have already learned the 99 names, and are on their way to understanding them InshaAllah. If they can do it, so can we InshaAllah!

How many singers do you know and give admiration,
And how many do you know of the companions and the following generation?
How much do you spend on singers from your dollars?
Compared to how many you know of Islamic Scholars.
Do you see how much is memorized of Music songs?
While you ignore the book to which memorization belongs?
How much do you memorize of these incantations?
And swayed back and forth in intoxication?
Have you not seen those who follow the misguided?
And increase the loudness of the Music, when they should hide it?
And who writes their songs? thinkers, or men of academia?
Or maybe scholars, like Ahmad, Malik or maybe ibn Taymiyah.
O you who listens to music..
Dont you see that All the songs of the world and all the lyrics you ve seen
Wouldnt compare in reward to Alif Laam Meem
