Ibn Mas’ud on Quran: Let the amazing verses move your heart

‘Alqamah reported: Abdullah ibn Mas’ud, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “Do not scatter the Quran as if it were dates falling from a tree, nor recite quickly as if it were poetry. Stop at its verses that amaze you and let it move your hearts. Let not your concern be reaching the end of the surah.”

عَنْ عَلْقَمَةَ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ابْن مَسْعُودٍ رضي الله عنه قَالَ لا تَنْثُرُوهُ نَثْرَ الدَّقَلِ وَلا تَهُذُّوهُ هَذَّ الشِّعْرِ قِفُوا عِنْدَ عَجَائِبِهِ وَحَرِّكُوا بِهِ الْقُلُوبَ وَلا يَكُنْ هَمُّ أَحَدِكُمْ آخِرَ السُّورَةِ
