What is Meditation?
Think of meditation as mental training for your mind. It‟s about
focusing your attention and quieting the mental chatter that bombards
us daily.
It‟s not about emptying your mind (that‟s impossible!), but rather
learning to observe your thoughts and emotions without judgment.
How Can Meditation Benefit You?
The benefits of meditation are extensive and well-documented. Here
are just a few:
Reduced Stress and Anxiety:
Meditation helps calm the mind and body, leading to feelings of peace
and relaxation.
Improved Focus and Concentration:
By training your attention, meditation can sharpen your focus, making
you more productive and efficient.
Enhanced Self-Awareness:
Through meditation, you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself,
your thoughts, and your emotions.
Increased Self-Compassion:
By observing your thoughts and feelings objectively, you can develop a
sense of self-compassion and acceptance.
Concept of Meditation in Quran
The concept of contemplation, reflection, and remembrance of God is
deeply woven throughout the text.
These verses highlight the importance of actively engaging your mind
in contemplating God‟s creation, reflecting on His power and wisdom,
and remembering Him throughout the day. This practice shares
similar goals of achieving inner peace, clarity, and a deeper connection
with the divine.
Command to contemplate and reflect:
Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation
of the day and night there are signs for people of reason.
˹They are˺ those who remember Allah while standing, sitting, and lying
on their sides, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth
˹and pray˺, “Our Lord! You have not created ˹all of˺ this without
purpose. Glory be to You! Protect us from the torment of the Fire.
(Quran 3:190–191)
Emphasis on remembering God (dhikr):
„It is truly I. I am Allah! There is no god ˹worthy of worship˺ except Me.
So worship Me ˹alone˺, and establish prayer for My remembrance.
(Quran 20:14)
˹They are˺ those who remember Allah while standing, sitting, and lying
on their sides, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth
˹and pray˺, “Our Lord! You have not created ˹all of˺ this without
purpose. Glory be to You! Protect us from the torment of the Fire.
(Quran 3:191)
Ready to Give Meditation a Try?
Great! Now comes the fun part: learning how to meditate. Here are a
few simple techniques to get you started:
Mindfulness Meditation:

inhale and exhale. When your mind wanders, gently bring your
attention back to your breath.
Guided Meditation:
Use guided meditations, available online or through apps, which lead
you through a visualization or a specific theme.
Body Scan Meditation:
Focus your attention on different parts of your body, noticing any
sensations without judgment.
Be patient and kind to yourself. It takes practice to develop a
meditation habit, and some days will be easier than others. But with
consistent practice, you‟ll start to experience the many benefits that
meditation has to offer.
Start your journey to inner peace today!
Here are few famous quotes on Meditation:
Jiddu Krishnamurti (Indian philosopher)
“Meditation is not a means to an end. It is both the means and the
end.”
Joseph Goldstein (American vipassana meditation teacher)
“In the quiet moments, when the mind settles, we touch the vast,
luminous wellspring of peace within.”
Shinryu Suzuki (Zen Buddhist monk)
“The purpose of meditation is not to control the mind, but to watch it.
Control is a poor substitute for understanding.”
Alan Watts (British philosopher)
“Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in
the immediate moment.”
