How to Read the Qurʾān So That It Enlightens and Purifies

Shaikh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī Al-Madkhalī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Give special care and attention to reciting the Qurʾān this noble month, along with thinking about what its meanings entail; contemplating it; paying heed to its lessons and admonitions; avoiding what it orders [us] to avoid; understanding what’s lawful and what’s forbidden; understanding [its] promises and threats; and [understanding] whatever is similar to that from this noble Qurʾān. Through this, souls are purified and hearts become enlightened.
