The Qur’aan is the kalaam (speech) of Allah and as such, it is the most effective means of seeking divine nearness. Many of us do not know the translation and struggle with keeping our concentration but there are ways in which we can make our tilawat more realistic so that our recitation is not just a rehearsed recitation and actually touches our hearts. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
1. Reflect & bear in mind the exalted nature of the Qur’aan.

If all the Angels gather to lift up one letter, they will be unable to do so.”
