Inspiration Behind Us
The name Tadabbur Books of our Islamic bookstore is inspired by the command to do Tadabbur (ponder deeply) upon the Quran
أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ الْقُرْآنَ أَمْ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبٍ أَقْفَالُهَا
"Will they not, then, reflect upon 'the admonitions of' the Quran? Or is it rather, that on some hearts there are their own locks?" [Surah Muhammad 47:24 - Gracious Quran Translation by Dr. Ahmad Zaki Hammad]
The attached pronoun ‘haa’ on the word 'aqfaal' and this pronoun means ‘hers‘, or in this case, ‘its‘. So the verse actually becomes: “…are there upon the hearts, 'its' locks?” If we re-read the verse, taking this particle ‘haa’ into consideration, a greater picture will emerge for : that every heart has a lock and those who cannot reflect or ponder over the Quran have fallen into a state where the locks of their hearts are closed.
Contemplation of Quran is what breaks these locks and sets the hearts free. We can bring many a key to open our locked hearts but only one key has been designed to break the locks of our hearts. May Allah open up His Book for us and grant us insight into its deep meanings.
