Imaam adh-Dhahabi said, “Abu Mu’aawiyah al-Aswad: one of the great Awliyaa of Allaah, he accompanied Sufyaan ath-Thawree, Ibrahim Ibn Adham and others, and it was said that he went blind but that when he wanted to recite the Quraan he would then, with Allaah’s permission, be able to see the mushaf.”

Shaikh Muhammad Atiyyah Saalim said, “And I heard the Shaikh [i.e., Shaikh Muhammad al-Ameen al-Mukhtaar ash-Shinqiti, author of the tafseer, ‘Adwaaul-Bayaan’], may Allaah have mercy on us and him, make the following statement, ‘The Quraan will not become firmly established in one’s chest, nor will memorising it become easy, and neither understanding it, except by standing in prayer with it in the depth of the night,’ and he, may Allaah have mercy on him, would not leave his set portion of recitation during the night whether in summer or winter.’”

Host: A sister who has a question, she says that I feel scared and frightened sometimes when I sleep alone in my room and so I’m forced to play the Quraan in order to sleep while listening to its verses, is this allowed?
Ibn Baaz: I do not see any harm in that, because the Quraan is what the believer feels at ease with and it is the remembrance of Allaah عز وجل and thus listening to it is worship, so if a person needs to listen to it in order not to feel lonely and so that his heart can be at ease, then there is no harm in that and all praise is due to Allaah.

Shaikh Muhammad bin Qaasim, may Allaah have mercy on him, said that when, at a young age, he wanted to help his father, Shaikh ’Abdur-Rahmaan bin Qaasim رحمه الله collect and arrange the fatwaas and writings of Shaikhul-Islaam Ibn Taimiyyah, his father made it a condition that in order for him to be allowed to help he must firstly memorise the Quraan, he said, “So I finished memorising the entire Quraan in six months and then began helping him produce this formidable collection.” [In the end it came to 37 volumes].

Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “Sometimes, and I’m talking about myself [here], I look for the ruling concerning an issue in the books of fiqh that I have and in the Sunnah that I know but I don’t find it, then I reflect on an aayah from the Quran which suggests an idea about the ruling concerning that issue, so when I ponder over it, I find the ruling in the Quraan.”

Imaam adh-Dhahabi said, “So may Allaah have mercy on a man who devotes himself to his own situation, restricts his tongue, dedicates himself to reciting his Quraan, cries over his time, constantly ponders over the two Sahihs, and worships Allaah before the appointed time overtakes him unawares—O Allaah, so grant success and have mercy.”
