Torah 101

Unlike the Written Torah, when studying the Oral Torah, a person has not fulfilled his obligation of Torah study unless he understands what is being learnt. Nevertheless, exceptions are made for those that aren’t capable of understanding for reasons beyond their control.
Torah Study, Lubavitcher Rebbe
Torah 101
Disc 154, Program 614

Event Date: 14 Adar 5732 - February 29, 1972

Unlike the Written Torah, when studying the Oral Torah, a person has not fulfilled his obligation of Torah study unless he understands what is being learnt. Nevertheless, exceptions are made for those that aren’t capable of understanding for reasons beyond their control.

This implies that there is something gained regardless of the level of one’s comprehension or background. In fact, the only prerequisite for Torah study is the correct mindset.
