Ramadan Reminders: Tip Four

Implement a verse.

Pay attention to quality, not just quantity!
Abdullāh b. Masʿūd – Allāh be pleased with him – said:
When a man amongst us learned ten verses [of the Quran], he would not move on [to the next verses] until he had understood their meanings and how to act by them.
[Al-Ṭabarī, Al-Tafsīr 1:80. Shaykh Aḥmad Shākir graded its chain of transmission ṣaḥīḥ.]
Abū ‘Abd Al-Raḥmān Al-Sulamī said:
Those who used to teach us the Quran (the Companions) told us that they used to learn the Quran from the Prophet – Allāh’s peace and blessings be upon him; when they had learnt ten verses they would not move on until they put into practice what was in them. So we learnt knowledge and deeds (implementation) together.
[Ibid. Shaykh Aḥmad Shākir graded its chain of transmission ṣaḥīḥ also.]
