Abu Musa (Radiallahu Anhu) has narrated: that the Prophet (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “The example of a believer who recites the Qur’an and acts on it, like a citron which tastes nice and smells nice.
And the example of a believer who does not recite the Qur’an but acts on it, is like a date which tastes good but has no smell.
And the example of a hypocrite who recites the Qur’an is like a Raihana (sweet basil) which smells good but tastes bitter
And the example of a hypocrite who does not recite the Quran is like a colocynth which tastes bitter and has a bad smell.”
[Sahih Muslim: Volume 6, Book 61, Number 579]
Know that the Qur’an is the ocean wherefrom the jewels of knowledge and the treasures of understanding are extracted.
~Imam Abdullah ibn Alawi al Haddad
