The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa)

A Glimpse into the Life of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) – Recitation of the Holy Qur’an and Fear of God


God Almighty says that when the verses of Gracious God are recited for the learned people, they fall down on their faces weeping and it increases humility in them. (17:110)

At another place the Holy Qur’an says that on listening to the recitation, verses do creep the skins of those who fear their Lord. (39:24)

Who else can be a better example of this than our Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa)? He was the most God-fearing. This was his condition on hearing or reciting the Holy Qur’an. His eyes would brim with tears and he would start to shed tears. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) asked Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mas‘ud (ra) to recite the Holy Qur’an for him. When he reached this verse, ‘And how will it fare with them when We shall bring a witness from every people and shall bring thee as a witness against these,’ the Holy Prophet (sa) could not restrain himself, a stream of tears started from his eyes. With a sign of his hand, he told him to stop.
