Muslims believe that the Qur’an is the Book of Allah that was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and that it will continue till the Day of Judgment to admonish and guide the entire humanity. Nowadays, many people think that since the Qur’an is in Arabic and they do not know Arabic, it is not necessary for them to feel the meaning and sense of the Qur’an.
In this regard, Sheikh Nouman Khan talks about the importance of understanding the Qur’an and pondering over its verses. Everyone is supposed to think deeply in the Qur’an and keep in mind that Almighty Allah is talking to you as the Qur’an is the Speech of Allah. The Qur’an itself invites us to think:
Indeed, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur’an that you might understand. (Yusuf 12:2)
The fundamental aim of listening, reciting, learning Tajweed, or memorizing the Qur’an is to have a better understanding of the Qur’an.
