CHAPTER: LISTENING TO THE RECITATION OF THE QUR'AN  

No. 900

Ibn 'Abbas reported with regard to the words of Allaah, Great and Glorious:" Move not thy tongue therewith" (Ixxv. 16) that when Gabriel brought revelation to him (the Prophet) he moved his tongue and lips (with a view to committing it to memory instantly). This was something hard for him and it was visible (from his face). Then Allaah, the Exalted. revealed this a" Move not thy tongue therewith to make haste (in memorising it). Surely on us rests the collecting of it and the reciting of it" (ixxv. 16), i. e. Verily it rests with Us that We would preserve it in your heart and (enable you) to recite it You would recite it when We would recite it and so follow its recitation, and He (Allaah) said:" We revealed it, so listen to it attentively. Verily its exposition rests with Us. i. e. We would make it deliver by your tongue." So when Gabriel came to him (to the Prophet), he kept silence, and when he went away he recited as Allaah had promised him.

No. 901

Ibn Abbas reported with regard to the words:" Do not move thy tongue there with to make haste," that the Prophet of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) felt it hard and he moved his lips. Ibn 'Abbas said to me (Sa'id b. Jubair): I move them just as the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) moved them. Then said Sa'id: I move them just as Ibn 'Abbas moved them, and he moved his lips. Allaah, the Exalted, revealed this:" Do not move your tongue therewith to make haste. It is with US that its collection rests and its recital" (al-Qur'an, ixxv. 16). He said: Its preservation in your heart and then your recital. So when We recite it, follow its recital. He said: Listen to it, and be silent and then it rests with Us that you recite it. So when Gabriel came to the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), he listened to him attentively, and when Gabriel went away, the Prophet of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) recited as he (Gabriel) had recited it.
