Recitation of The Qur'an
CommentaryIn the first of the present verses (29), some those qualities of the same blessed people, the awliya’ or men of Allah, are mentioned that find expression through outward parts of the body. Out of these, the first quality is the tilawah (recitation) of the Qur’an. This denotes the people who recite the Book of Allah constantly. The use of the aorist tense (mudari) in: یَتلُونَ (yatluna: they recite) releases a hint in this direction. Then, there are other elders who have taken: یَتلُونَ (yatluna) at this place in its literal sense, that is, they follow the Qur’an in deed. But, the first Tafsir is weightier, even though, it also stands determined from the context that recitation can be trustworthy only when it brings forth actions in accordance with the Qur’an. But, the word: تِلَاوَت (tilawah or recitation) used here appears in its recognized sense. Similarly, Mutarrif Ibn ` Abdullah Ibn Shikhkhir (رح) said: ھَذِہٖ آیَۃُ القُرَّاِء (This verse is for al-qurra’ ), the phoneticians of the Qur’an, who make the recitation of the Qur’an their special activity of life.
The Virtue of The Noble QuranThe Qur’an is an illumination and a light; by it is obtained deliverance from error and deception; and in it lies the healing of those [diseases] which exist in men’s souls. Anyone, of [even] the most powerful men, who contradicts it is severely punished by God, and anyone who seeks knowledge from a source other than it is led astray by Him. The Qur’an is the strong rope of God [which man should grasp firmly], His clear light [in which man should walk in life], the strongest and most dependable support [which man should take hold of], and the most perfect shelter [to which man should have recourse].
فَقَالُوٓا۟ إِنَّا سَمِعْنَا قُرْءَانًا عَجَبًا ۞ يَهْدِىٓ إِلَى ٱلرُّشْدِ فَـَٔامَنَّا بِهِۦ ۖ وَلَن نُّشْرِكَ بِرَبِّنَآ أَحَدًا
“We have certainly heard [the recitation of] a wonderful Qur’an which guides to the right path; so we have believed in it and we shall never associate anyone with our Lord”
[Surah Jinn, Ayah 1-2]
إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا ٱلذِّكْرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُۥ لَحَـٰفِظُونَ
“Surely We Ourselves have sent down the Exhortation [i.e. the Qur’an] and We will most certainly safeguard it
[Surah Al-Hijr, Ayah 9]
Mental Tasks While Reciting The Noble Qur’an1) The first mental task is understanding the magnification of the divine speech [i.e. the Qur’an] and its elevated nature, and the bounty of Allah (SWT) and His kindness towards His creatures [i.e. men] in descending from the throne of His majesty to the level of their understanding.
