ATTITUDES OF HEART AND MIND: Allah's Infinite Mercy
Realise that, just as it has been Allah's infinite mercy that has brought His words to you in the Qur'an, so it can be only His mercy that can lead you to the full rewards of its reading. Your desire and effort are the necessary means; but His will and support are the only guarantees. So approach the Qur'an with humility, with a sense of utter dependence upon Him, with trust in Him and with supplication and devotion to Him at every step.
