Excerpts From The Book:
At-Tadabbur ( ُالتَّدَبُر ) linguistically derives from the Arabic word Ad-Dubur ( ُالدُّبُر ), which means "the end of something", (as in) dubr ad-daabah , i.e. the end of the riding beast. Tadbir and Tadabbur of an affair is the consolidation of the consequences of the affair, i.e. to consider what the end result will lead to. At-Tadabbur means thinking on it, i.e., the attainment of two pieces of information to acquire a third. Therefore, At-Tadabbur means thinking and understanding.
At-Tadabbur and Al-I'tibar (consideration) means a lesson or example; consideration of the past. Al-I'tibar means contemplation (At-Tadabbur) and discernment.
Therefore, Al-I'tibar is the condition and psychological framework with which the knowledge of something observed leads to the knowledge of something unobserved.
An in conventional language: At-Tadabbur is a term meaning the consideration of the consequences of things, and it is similar in meaning to the term At-Tafakkur ( التَّفَكَّرُ ), i.e. thinking, although thinking is the behaviour of the heart when considering a proof and At-Tadabbur is the behaviour of the heart with the consideration of final consequences.
[Reference: Lisan Al-'Arab , Al-Qamus Al-Muhit , Taj Al-'Arus]
In the Islamic legislation: At-Tadabbur is considering, understanding and thinking about the consequences to which the affairs mentioned in the Noble Quran lead, and the benefits from that in regard to the servant's Iman and the appearance of its effects on the limbs.
[Reference: At-Ta'rifat by Al-Jurjani]
This is the meaning derived from following the meanings of At-Tadabbur found in the Islamic legislation.
