Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “The Quraan was revealed for three things. The first: to worship Allaah by reciting it. Secondly, to ponder over its meanings. And thirdly, to take heed through it. Allaah, the Blessed and 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.” [Saad 38:29]
And it is not possible for anyone to ponder over the Quraan except by knowing its meaning, because the one who does not know the meaning is like the one who does not read.”
