Reading Qur’aan Hurriedly

Qur’aanic Verse 20.114:



114. FataAAala Allahu almaliku alhaqqu wala taAAjal bialqur-ani min qabli an yuqda ilayka wahyuhu waqul rabbi zidnee AAilman


114. And exalted is Allah, the true Sovereign! And make no haste with reciting the Quran before its revelation to you is completed.23 And say, “O my Lord! Increase my knowledge.” 

Study Note:

23. It may be that the Prophet (peace on him) used to get anxious that he should not forget what was revealed to him, and would start reciting the Verse/s before the revelation was complete; hence, this divine admonition. Elsewhere in the Qur’aan (Verses 75.16 to 75.19), we are informed that Allah assured him of His help in making him remember. But this admonition has significance for us too. Allah tells us here that we should not read the Qur’aan hurriedly, but deliberate on what we read and try our best to understand it.


The above is an extract from Qur’aanic Studies Manzil IV, which will soon, inshaAllah, be published on Amazon Kindle. Manzil IMabzil II & Manzil III of the series are already published.

Mohammad Shafi



  1. Sura Ta Haa 20;114
    Likewise these people should observe with reason and conviction that,in reality,supermacy is achieved by being firmly attached to the Divine Laws.This is because these Laws are given by the ultimate soverign and master.And while implementing the Quranic system,,O Rasool,do not be in haste and wait until the full text of that matter is revealed to you.Wait until your knowledge is further increased(and only then you should take the next step further~ 75;16)
