Can you give me any advice on how to increase my concentration while reading Quran. I am trying to finish it for the month of Ramadan but I don’t feel like I’m reaping enough rewards because my thoughts sometimes overtake me as I’m reciting. It’s really bothering me it’s almost like I can’t control it. I think part of it has to do with the fact that I don’t understand most of what I read due to the eloquent vocabulary. At the end of the day I’m not a Sheikha but still that’s not an excuse to not be focused.

In your case you should not be concerned with finishing the whole Quran rather read with understanding even if it means that you only read surah Baqarah only during the whole month
