Qur’an And Hadith About Tilawah (recitation) of the Holy Qur’an

Topic Progress:


Allah has declared:

“And when the Qur’an is recited, listen to it attentively and be silent, that you may receive mercy.”

“None can touch it (ie. the Qur’an) except the purified ones.”


Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad [s] said:

“Whoever lends his ear attentively to hear even one verse of the Qur’an, Allah records a good deed which is ever increasing and the increase is limitless. Further, he who recites a single verse, it will turn into a brilliant light for him on the Day of Judgement and will be more excellent than the good deed mentioned.”

“O you who believe in the Qur’an, do not make it a pillow (ie. do not lean on it or place it on the ground or be negligent in any way with it), buy correctly recite it day and night and popularise the recitation. Pronounce its words correctly, and whatever is said in the Qur’an you should think over it and take guidance from it that you may be successful, and never think of gaining worldly benefit through it but recite it for only to secure Allah’s pleasure.”
