Hakeemul Ummat Hazrat Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanawi ra adviced:
“The easiest way to achieve this is to contemplate prior to recitation that;
Allah SWT has requested me to recite for Him some verses of Holy Quran.
Obliging to this request I am reciting and Allah SWT is listening.
By actively doing this muraqaba (contemplation) all etiquettes necessary for recitation of Holy Quran will be fulfilled easily.”
