Encouragement to Contemplate the Qur’an: Sheikh bin Baaz

In part of a longer advice regarding the Qur’an, Sheikh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez bin Baaz said:

تدبر القرآن من أوله إلى آخره من الفاتحة وهي أعظم سورة في القرآن وأفضل سورة فيه إلى آخر ما في المصحف قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ والمعوذتين تدبر القرآن واقرأه بتدبر وتعقل، ورغبة في العمل والفائدة، لا تقرأه بقلب غافل، اقرأه بقلب حاضر بتفهم وبتعقل، واسأل عما أشكل عليك، اسأل أهل العلم عمَّا أشكل عليك مع أن أكثره بحمد الله واضح للعامة والخاصة ممن يعرف اللغة العربية

Contemplate the Qur’an from its beginning to its end, from al-Fatihah [01] – which is the greatest and most virtuous surah in the Qur’an – until the end of the mushaf – that is, surah al-Ikhlaas [112] and the mu’awadhatayn [113 & 114].

Ponder over the Qur’an; read it with reflection and deep thought, as well as with eagerness to act on it and benefit from it. Do not recite it with a heedless heart; recite it with an attentive heart so that you might understand it and think critically about it.

And inquire about whatever confuses you – ask the people of knowledge about whatever is confusing to you. However, alhamdulillaah, most of the Qur’an is clear to those who know the Arabic language, whether they be lay-people or trained.

[Fataawaa ibn Baaz 9/25]
