Thank you for your question. The exegetical literature surrounding the Quran shows that interpreting the Quran and clarifying its meanings is something that is allowed. What is not allowed is superimposing our opinions and ideas on the Quran and interpreting it according to our whims. Reflecting on the message of the Quran is an essential aspect of an Islamic way of life, but that should be done while also seeking clarification from scholars who can access the available literature to provide educated perspectives. 

May you always be successful.
