Divine Wisdom: The passage “read the Quran from cover to cover” Surah Al-Muzaamil – QN73:4 and “…commemorate the name of your Lord, to come ever closer and closer to Him.”QN73:8, reminds us that, just as butterflies cover more ground, but bees gather more honey because the butterfly just flies over the flowers while the bee lands on each one and stays there long enough to extract the nectar, there’s a big difference between merely reading our Quran for a few hurried minutes and taking time to meditate on what we’ve read.
In other words, the point isn’t how much Ayats we memorise, it’s what happens to us in the process.
So let the knowledge that:
1) Meditation clarifies our understanding, corrects our conduct, enriches our thinking and equips us to think differently than if we were doing worldly things; and
2) It is the cure for moral and spiritual weakness;
Teach you, even as you wake up to a bright Monday, to make your Quran your companion and always make out quality time to meditate on it!
Pray with me: O Allah, I commit myself to You Alone. Open the doors of Istijabah, answer all my supplications and grant all my heart desires that I may Glorify Your Name all the days of my life, amin!
Good morning and have a fulfilling week.
