Acting upon the Quran is the secret of happiness in both worlds
Acting upon the Great Quran is the pinnacle of the rights of the Quran, and it is the main care of the
revelation of the Holy Book,
“And this [Quran] is a Book We have revealed [which is] blessed, so follow it and fear Allah that you
may receive mercy.” Surah Al-An‘am: 155
One of the greatest causes of the Jews’ misery is that they contented themselves with reading and
listening to the Tawrah without any action followed, so God the Almighty likened them to donkeys.
He said: “The example of those who were entrusted with the Tawrah and then did not take it on
is like that of a donkey who carries volumes [of books]. Wretched is the example of the people who
deny the signs of Allah. And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people” Surah Al-Jumu‘ah: 5
Look how bad is the example of people who deny the Ayat of Allah (proofs, evidence, verses, signs,
Revelations)From Abu Ad-Darda who said: “We were with the Prophet (ﷺ) when he raised his sight
to the sky, then he said: ‘This is the time when knowledge is to be taken from the people until what
remains of it shall not amount to anything.” So Ziyad bin Labid Al-Ansari said: ‘How will it be taken
from us while we recite the Quran.
By Allah we recite it, and our women and children recite it?’ He (ﷺ) said:
‘May you be bereaved of your mother O Ziyad! I used to consider you
among the Fuqaha of the people of Al-Madinah. The Tawrah and Injil are with the Jews and
Christians, but what do they avail of them?'”
The Messenger of God (ﷺ) calls the Ummah of Islam to act upon the Quran after reading and
understanding it, not limiting the Quran for reading only, so they do as the Children of Israel did,
God Almighty said about them:
“And among them are unlettered ones who do not know the Scripture except [indulgement in]
wishful thinking, but they are only assuming”
Surah Al-Baqarah: 78
Al-Qurtubi – may God have mercy on him- explained: «wishful thinking which is the recitation. »
Most Muslims today – except some people – know nothing about the Quran except its recitation!
The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ), warned his companions of the actions of a group that would come
after them reciting the Quran, but the recitation does not go beyond their throats, and it remains in
the space of voices without actions. Abu Sai’d al-Khudri heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) as saying:
“There would arise in this nation (and he did not say out of them) a people and you would hold
insignificant your prayers as compared with their prayers. And they would recite the Quran which
would not go beyond their throats and would swerve through the religion (as blank) just as a
(swift) arrow passes through the prey. The archer looks at his arrow, at its iron head, and glances at
its end (which he held) in the tip of his fingers to see whether it had any stain of blood.”
The prophetic teachings and directives have produced a generation of honorable companions who
read, understand, and act upon the Quran. The teachings of our true religion and knowledge of the
Noble Quran is the basis to learn other sciences because the Noble Quran gives us the rules of
speech, clarity of logic and illuminates the right path for the future.
God Almighty has revealed the Quran to His Noble Messenger to teach it to his Companions and
Muslims and to be a constitution for their lives to studying it, implement its commands and avoid
its prohibitions. Acting upon the Quran is the secret of happiness in both worlds. This Dunya and
the hereafter, and abandoning acting upon it is the cause of misery and unhappiness.
The Holy Quran is the secret of the light that shines the hearts and faces of the believers.
Ibn Omar said:
The virtuous one of the companions of the Messenger of Godﷺ, in the early days of
this nation, he was memorizing only a surah of the Quran and acting upon the Quran».
How do we work upon the Holy Quran?
The reader of the Noble Quran and the teacher of the Noble Quran must be distinguished from
1- Commitment to the obligatory deeds:
Acting upon the Quran, the obligatory acts which the disobedient punished and the doer is
rewarded. Examples include Salah, fasting, zakat, and other obligations mentioned in the Quran
and are cleared by the Messenger ﷺ Sunnah.
2- Avoiding prohibitions:
God Almighty mentioned in the Quran many forbidden things that Muslims must avoid, because
of the great harm that they cause to him and society. Among them are things that are forbidden to
the heart, things that are forbidden to the eyes, and things that are forbidden to the tongue.
3- Adherence to Islamic morals:
The reader of the Quran must be a refined model of good manners, purity of the tongue from
backbiting, gossip, and obscenity, and purity of heart from hatred.
4-Reflection on the stories contained in the Quran:
A Muslim can learn from the stories of the Noble Quran many lessons that benefit him in his
practical life, so he can manage his affairs and solve his problems, and there are some stories that
teach Muslim good morals, such as learning patience from the story of the Messenger Ayoub,
peace be upon him.
5- The Companions’ dealing with the Quran:
The Companions understood the purpose of that revelation of the Quran and considered it as a
constitution by which they administer all their affairs, as the Companions applied everything that
was mentioned in it, and they did not do any work before they knew its ruling in the Quran, Abu
Abd al-Rahman Al-Salami said, “If we had learned ten verses from the Quran, we would not have
learned the next ten until we knew what was permissible, forbidden, commanded, and prohibited.»
The virtues of memorizing the Quran
Whoever memorizes it and acts upon it, Allah will reward him greatly, so that he will rise in status in
Paradise to a level commensurate with what he memorized of the Book of Allah. Abdullah ibn Amr
narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: “The Hafiz-e-Quran (a person who has memorized it) will
be said on the Day of Judgment: Recite and rise in status, recite as you used to recite in the world,
for your status will be at the last verse that you recite.”When a reciter of the Quran enters into
Heaven, it will be said to him: ‘Go up one level for every verse that you can recite.’
Prophet Muhammad (s) has said, “The number of levels in Heaven is (equivalent to) the number of
verses in the Quran. Thus, no one will be in a higher level than the one who has memorized the
entire it.” Imam Ali (as) has also said, “Recite the Quran and seek assistance from it for surely Allah
the Highest will not punish one who has memorized it (and has it within one’s heart).”
Of the things that help to memorize it, Reading to an elaborated Quran Teacher, because correcting
mistakes takes precedence over memorizing the Quran, and it is incumbent on the learner of the
Quran to realize that he is exposed to mistaken, and his duty when mistakes occur, to learn the
the correct way of reading and master what his sheik or Quran teacher teaches him.
