How to contemplate over the Qur’aan to attain benefit
Shaykh-ul-Islam ibnu Taymiyyah said:
“Whoever contemplates over the Qur’aan, seeking guidance from it will clearly recognise the true path”
Shaykh ibnu Uthaymeen comments:
A powerful statement in meaning. It contains two affairs (conditions);
(1) contemplation and (2) seeking guidance.
Therefore, “contemplation” is the action (required) and “seeking guidance” is the good (sincere, truthful) intention (required) and “will clearly recognise the true path” is the clause that expresses the result (of the two conditions being met).
