    dates fruit.jpg

    "The example of a believer, who recites the Qur'an and acts on it, is like an orange (utrujjah) which tastes nice and smells nice.


    And the example of the believer who does not recite the Qur'an but acts on it is like a date that tastes sweet but has no smell.

    And the example of the hypocrite who recites the Quran is like a sweet basil which smells good but tastes bitter.

    And the example of a hypocrite who does not recite the Qur'an is like a colocynth (bitter apple) which tastes bitter and has a bad smell."
    [Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim ].

    Commentary: This Hadith tells us that a believer who recites the Qur'an and acts upon it, Allah will grant him a high rank. He is loved by Allah and also enjoys public esteem. The believer who does not recite it but acts upon its teachings is also loved by Allah and people. The hypocrite who recites the Qur'an to have a good show has an evil and dark mind. Last of all comes that hypocrite who does not recite the Qur'an and has a dark mind and appearance.

    :tti_sister: May Allah make us all like oranges, with a nice taste and a nice smell. Ameen

    Salam :hearts:

    Salam alaikum sister,

    I've stated that it's from Bukhari and Muslim, but anyway it's hadith no. 995 from Riyad Us-Saliheen book, Book of Virtues http://bewley.virtualave.net/riyad6.html#virtues

    though this is a different translation.

    Salam
