Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) sayings on Holy Quran

About the rank and position of Holy Quran in the Islamic Traditions

Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) sayings on Holy QuranLearning and teaching, reading and memorizing, planning and acting on the contents, there are numerous traditions in the Sunni and Shiite sources that its studying can display and manifest the importance and greatness of the Heavenly book. These traditions have been compiled in the books of traditions under the headings of "books of traditions", the "book of the excellence of Holy Quran", and the "book of the Merits of Holy Quran". The commentators of Holy Quran especially the commentators living in the beginning of Islam have narrated these traditions in their books. In addition to the above, some of the earlier scholars have made efforts to write books under the heading of "the book of the Fazl-ul-Quran or the book of Navader-ul-Quran."

Ofcourse, some of these writings could not be transferred to the other periods. But, in the periods of recent scholars, the late Allama Majlisi has allocated a part of the nineteenth volume of his book "Bihar al-Anwar" to the Book of Holy Quran. This part has been printed in the volumes 89 and 90. Besides, this point that this part of the book of Bihar al-Anwar, like the other parts of this magnificent treasure, not only includes numerous writings of scholars of the earlier centuries, but implicitly it contains many traditions from Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) and the Holy Imams (as). It is a very useful reference.

Lastly, in the selection of the traditions of these writings, great emphasis has been laid on selecting the short Quranic traditions. In some cases, a part of the tradition has been mentioned from summary viewpoint. We have refrained from mentioning the reference of the tradition so that it will be easier to read or memorize them. But, those interested for finding the references of every tradition can refer to their sources.

01 - The superiority and excellence of the Holy Quran.

a) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"The superiority and preference of the Holy Quran on all other books and sayings is the same as the superiority of Almighty over His creatures."

b) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"The Holy Quran is superior and excellent to everything other than Almighty Allah (SWT)."

c) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"One who reads the Holy Quran, then he imagines that somebody (else) has received better and superior than him, then most certainly he has considered it insignificant the thing that is honorable and great before the Almighty."

d) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"Whenever mischief and seditions surround you like a part of the darkness of the night then (take refuge and) go towards the Holy Quran."

e) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"The Holy Quran is a wealth that no wealth can equal (or reach) it. And there will be no poverty after it."

02 - the Comprehensiveness and value of Holy Quran.

a) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"The Book of the Almighty comprises of the narratives and incidents of the ancients; the news of the future ones; and the rules and regulations amongst you. The Holy Quran was the measure and weight of the truth and falsehood and it is not facetious and in vain."

b) Ameerul Momineen Ali (as) said:
"The Holy Quran is beautiful apparently and it is deep and profound inwardly. Its wonder is everlasting and the curtains of darkness will not be removed when refraining from it."

03 - Learning and teaching the Holy Quran.

a) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"The best of you are those who have learned the Holy Quran and teach to the others".

b) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"One who teaches an Ayat of the Holy Quran, the Sawab (good deed) will be earned and returned to them so long as the Ayat is being recited."

c) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"For the teacher of the Holy Quran, all the particles of the world seek forgiveness and supplicate for him even the fishes of the oceans."

"Learn and study (Holy) Quran. It is the best of the sayings. Peruse and think and deliberate on it as it is the spring of the hearts."

"It is deserving and worthy of a believer that he should not depart from this world but that he has learned the (Holy) Quran or is in the path of learning it."

f) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"The (Holy) Quran is the (dining) table of the Almighty. Therefore, utilize it and learn as far as possible."

04 - The Recitation of The Holy Quran; Its Effect and Its Usefulness.

a) The best of the worships is the recitation of the (Holy) Quran. The traditions that have been narrated about reward and good deeds for the recitation of the Holy Quran is considered as the best of worships. It is important to mention that during the period of Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw); the learning of the word and meaning of the Holy Quran was considered jointly. Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) recommended the recitation of the Holy Quran along with understanding their meanings. The conduct of Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) shows us that he would teach ten Ayats of the Holy Quran to his companions and till the time they would not learn and understand the practical rules and science of the ten Ayats, he would not commence the next ten Ayats. Thus, the reader of the Holy Quran was aware and well conversant of their meanings.

b) Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) said:
"The Quran is the covenant and programs the Almighty for His creatures. It is deserving that every Muslim should look at this divinely testament every day and recite fifty Ayats from them every day."

c) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"One who recites ten Ayats of the (Holy) Quran during the night is from amongst the negligent and the heedless. One who recites fifty Ayats is from amongst the recites and commemorators. One who recites hundred Ayats is from amongst the humble and meek ones. One who recites two hundred Ayats will be counted from amongst the one who fears the Almighty and from amongst the special ones. One who recites three hundred Ayats will be from amongst the delivered and saved ones. And one who recites five hundred Ayats, he will be from amongst the jurisprudents."

d) Ameerul Momineen Ali (as) said:
"In the day of Resurrection, it will be said to the reciter of the Holy Quran (Qaari) that recite (The Holy Quran) and step above. Recite as you have recited in the (previous) world. Your status and position is up to the last Ayats that you have recited."

Position of Holy Quran in the Islamic Traditionse) Ameerul Momineen Ali (as) said:
"One who recites the (Holy) Quran is like the one on whose heart has been inserted the Prophet hood except that "Wahi" (revelations) have not been revealed for him."

f) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said to Salman Mohammadi:
"O Salman! Upon you be about the recitation of the (Holy) Quran. Its recitation is kaffarah (atonement) of sins."

g) Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) said:
"One who recites the Holy Quran and he is a young believer, then his body and blood will be blended and mixed with it."

H) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"Surely, these hearts are rusts like rusted irons. Surely (the thing) which gives it luster and polish is the recitation of the (Holy) Quran."

a) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"Discharge (your duty towards the Holy) Quran in a good way and search for its wonders and strangeness."

c) Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) said:

d) Ameerul Momineen Ali (as) said:

06 - The Recitation Of The Holy Quran in a beautiful and Melodious Tone.

"For everything there is an adornment and a decoration. The adornment of the (Holy) Quran is a beautiful voice and tone."

b) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"Adorn and decorate the (Holy) Quran with your (good) voice."

c) It was asked from Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) that which of the peoples voice in the recitation of the (Holy) Quran is better. He said; "The voice of that person is better who while reciting the Holy Quran and his recitation reaches you, you feel that he is feaful of Allah."

d) Imam Ali al-Hadi (as) said:
"Ali ibn Hussein (Zainul Abedin) would recite the (Holy) Quran in such a beautiful voice the passer byes who would pass from his house would swoon and (would be overcome) by his voice."

e) Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) said:
While interpreting the Ayat of the Holy Quran, "The meaning of this Ayat is that one should recite the Holy Quran in a slow and pauseful manner and make your voice beautiful with its recitation."

a) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"Looking at the Moshaf (Holy Quran) is (considered as) worship."

As per some traditions, Moshaf is a name, which has been ascribed to the Holy Quran. This word has not come in the Holy Quran in this form, but its derivative of "Sohof" has been used in the Holy Quran on 8 occasions.

b) Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
"The recitation of the Holy Quran from the Moshaf (Book) is better that its recitation from memory."

RAMADHAN & HOLY QURAN
O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint, (2:183)
(Fasting) for a fixed number of days; but if any of you is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed number (Should be made up) from days later. For those who can do it (With hardship), is a ransom, the feeding of one that is indigent. But he that will give more, of his own free will, it is better for him. And it is better for you that ye fast, if ye only knew. (2:184)
