Therefore, this journal is designed to serve as a platform to identify the various religious and social dimensions of knowledge, such as considering the Holy Quran as the foremost and fundamental source of Islamic rules followed by the Sunah (biography of the Prophet Mohammed Peace and Blessings be Upon Him) that explains and clarifies the Holy Quran, along with its affiliated Sharia studies on the individual and society, such as studies concerned with Ijtihad which focuses on the studying of modern issues and finding solutions to them.
Regrettably, Muslims’ interest in the Qur’an has lessened. Many of them limited their focus to reading or reciting the Holy Qur’an rather than contemplating it and understanding its meanings and instructions. Others even went further than that by not complying with its commands. Due to this, Muslims weakened and missed out on the civilizing process and leadership. Allah (swt) descended the Qur’an for us to consider it with care and act accordingly. But, unfortunately, many Muslims limited their study of the Qur’an to research and working purposes. One may recite the Holy Qur’an perfectly but fails to comply with its teachings.
This paper is concerned with the issue of contemplating the Holy Qur’an. It aims at expounding the concept at both lexical and technical levels. It also explores the Prophetic method to meditate on the Qur’an. It presents the advantages and fruits of meditation on the Qur’an and underlines its status in the Qur’an and the Sunnah. It analyzes, as well, the stages of meditation and the appropriate way to recite the Qur’an with contemplation and influence.
