Imaam Muhammad bin Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen [May Allah have mercy on him] said:
“I encourage my brothers, especially the students of knowledge, to be eager to understand the meaning of the noble Qur’aan, because indeed the noble Qur’aan was revealed [as a guide for the people in their acts of ] worship – by reciting it and contemplating on its meaning.
Allaah [The Most High] said:
“[This is] a blessed book which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], that they might reflect upon its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded.””
