Tadabbur Al Quran

Pondering Over the Quran : Juz 30

Maximize rewards in the last 10 days of Ramadan

Alhamdulillah! What a golden opportunity, isn’t it? Let’s make the most of these remaining divine days of Ramadan.

Indeed, among the best matters by which one strengthens his Eemaan is to ponder over the Book of Allaah [Quran] and contemplate the universe so that he would increase his Eemaan and certainty even more.

Allah سبحانه وتعالى says:

كِتَابٌ أَنْزَلْنَاهُ إِلَيْكَ مُبَارَكٌ لِيَدَّبَّرُوا آيَاتِهِ وَلِيَتَذَكَّرَ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ

“It is a Book We have sent down to you, full of blessing, so let people of intelligence ponder (liyaddabbaru) its Signs and take heed.” [Saad, 38:29]

In this ayah the word, liyaddabbaru is used – which means have to have ‘taddabur’ (deep contemplation)

Allah سبحانه وتعالى says:

أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ الْقُرْآنَ أَمْ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبٍ أَقْفَالُهَا

“Will they not then ponder the Qur’an or are there locks upon their hearts?” [Muhammad, 47:24]

Allah سبحانه وتعالى is not only asking us to recite the Qur’an, rather He is asking us to ponder and contemplate over the Qur’an.

May Allah سبحانه وتعالى to give us understanding of His Book and allow this understanding to aid us in our actions. Aameen.
