When Are You Going to Read Some Tafsīr?

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

When are you going to read a tafsīr of the Qurʾān? An important question that might occur to some of us.

There’s no better time than the one we’re in now, the Month of Fasting. If one of us were to read a single juzʿ [equivalent to one-thirtieth of the Qurʾān] along with its tafsīr, and then thought about what [those] verses meant, [that would be] better than completing a full recitation of Qurʾān many times over [without thinking about its meanings].

{أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ الْقُرْآنَ أَمْ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبٍ أَقْفَالُهَا}

Do they not think then about what the Qurʾān means? Rather, their hearts are closed off. (Muḥammad 24)
