28_ RECITATION, CONTEMPLATION, AND ACTION
WE BELIEVE that the recitation of QUR?N is the best of worship, because it inspires the reciter to
think and to contemplate, by which actions may result. QUR?N addressing the prophet says:_
"Keep vigil all the night (i.e stand in prayer) except for a few hour_half the night, more or less; and with measured and." rhythmic tone recite the QUR?N."
THE HOLY QUR?N _ S73: 2_4
And addressing all the Muslims, QUR?N has:_
"Read you the QUR?N as much as you can."
THE HOLY QUR?N _ S73: 24
"Do they not contemplate the QURAN, (so as to catch its meanings) or their hearts are locked up?"
THE HOLY QUR?N _ S47: 24
"And We have indeed made the QUR?N, easy to understand and remember. Then is there anyone who may receive admonition?"
THE HOLY QUR?N _ S54: 17
"And QUR?N is a book which We have revealed as a blessing: So follow it, and be righteous, so that you receive God's Mercy."
THE HOLY QUR?N _ S6: 158
Therefore those who read QUR?N, without any
contemplation, and actoin, lose a lot for ignoring two main, important elements (thought and act) and grasping only one.(reading)
