Qur’an: Beyond Recitation

Our relationship with the Qur’an must go beyond recitation. It is reported that Umar ibn Al-Khattab r.a. said:

“Do not be fooled by one who recites the Qur’an.
His recitation is but speech – but look to those who act according to it.”

[Al-Khatib, Iqtida’ Al-Ilm Al-Amal no. 109]
