8 Things That Help Us Think about What the Qurʾān Means

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

From that which helps [a person] think about what the Qurʾān means:

1. Picking the right time for recitation
2. Picking the right place
3. Freeing oneself from [other] things that hold one’s attention
4. Remembering the virtue of thinking about what the Qurʾān means
5. Reading a short, summarized tafsīr
6. Reflecting on what you come across of stories, rulings, and the like of that
7. Asking Allāh to enlighten you with the understanding of His book
8. That you put you, yourself, in the position of the one being spoken to in whatever you’re reading [or reciting]
