What is better, that a person reads the Qur’aan and finishes it many times or that he reads it pondering over its Tafseer [and finishes it] once or twice in Ramadhaan?


Shaykh Ahmad Yahya An-Najmee:


”By Allaah if he reads it once with its explanation and understands it, it is better than if he reads it being hasty or so. And when a man said to Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (Radiya Allaahu ‘anhu), ”I have indeed read al Mufassal yesterday” [Mufassal, 4 Juzz from Qaaf up to An-Naas]. Ibn Mas’ood answered:”This is the reading of a hasty poet.”

It is therefore better to read and ponder [over the Aayah] using an explanation to make the meaning clear. It is better to read with a Tafseer and to ponder [over the Aayah], Na’am.”

Firstly: It is a spiritual exercise of the soul due to the withholding itself from its desires and that which is beloved to it.

Secondly: That the abandonment of food and drink as well as carnal desires during this time, being done out of worship of Allaah; The Mighty and Majestic accedes to a person an increase in his Eemaan along with strength in his being wary of the forbidden affairs and abstaining from non permissible desires.
