Dari Ibn Qoiyim dalam al-Fawaid:
If you want to benefit from the Quran, you must concentrate and devote your heart solely when reciting and listening to it. You must pay attention, and try to comprehend the fact that what you are reading is the word of Allah. As you read, you must know that ALlah is addressing you in and through this Quran. Indeed, it is the words of Allah to you through the tongue of His Messenger.
Verily therein is indeed a reminder for him who has a heart or gives ear while he is heedful (Qaf, 50:37)
