“He (is) the One Who sent among the unlettered a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His Verses, and purifying them and teaching them the Book and the wisdom”
The ‘Quran Reading’ category carries the “Read” part of the article, as read in the ‘Connect to Explore’ category.
Allah Almighty says, “He (is) the One Who sent among the unlettered a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His Verses, and purifying them and teaching them the Book and the wisdom although they were before surely in an error clear.” [Quran:62:2].
This verse of the Quran and many others shows the significance of reciting the Quran according to the correct pronunciation and recitation rules as taught by the Messenger of Allah peace and blessings be upon him. Because he peace and blessings be upon him recited the verses to the Muslims and with no other reason but to teach them as Allah the Exalted taught him peace and blessings be upon him. Let’s read the words of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him;
“The example of him (a believer) who recites the Qur’an is like that of a citron which tastes good and smells good. And he (a believer) who does not recite the Qur’an is like a date which is good in taste but has no smell. And the example of a dissolute wicked person who recites the Qur’an is like the Raihana (sweet basil) which smells good but tastes bitter. And the example of a dissolute wicked person who does not recite the Qur’an is like the colocynth which tastes bitter and has no smell.”
Narrated Abu Musa Al-Ash’ari: Bukhari & Muslim
The above Prophetic Tradition is very clear in its meanings and sense. Before proceeding further let’s read another Prophetic Tradition;
“The Qur’aan will meet its companion on the Day of Resurrection when his grave is opened for him, in the form of a pale man. It will say to him, ‘Do you recognize me?’ He will say: ‘I do not recognize you.’ It will say: ‘I am your companion the Qur’aan, who kept you thirsty on hot days and kept you awake at night. Every merchant benefits from his business and today you will benefit from your good deeds.’ He will be given dominion in his right hand and eternity in his left, and there will be placed on his head a crown of dignity, and his parents will be clothed with priceless garments the like of which have never been seen in this world. They will say: ‘Why have we been clothed with this?’ It will be said: ‘Because your son used to recite Qur’aan.’ Then it will be said to him: ‘Recite and ascend in the degrees of Paradise,’ and he will continue to ascend so long as he recites, either at a fast pace or a slow pace.”
Narrated Buraydah: Ahmed & Ibn Majah
