More than just reading…

كِتَابٌ أَنزَلْنَاهُ إِلَيْكَ مُبَارَكٌ لِّيَدَّبَّرُوا آيَاتِهِ وَلِيَتَذَكَّرَ أُوْلُوا الْأَلْبَابِ

(This is) a Book (the Qur’an) which We have sent down to you, full of blessings that they may ponder over its Verses, and that men of understanding may remember.

Saad: 29

اقرؤوا القرآن ما ائتلفت عليه قلوبكم فإذا اختلفتم فيه فقوموا

فضائل القرآن للحافظ ابن كثير

ومعنى الحديث أنه عليه السلام أرشد وحض أمته على تلاوة القرآن إذا كانت القلوب مجتمعة على تلاوته متفكرة متدبرة له لا فى حال شغلها وملالها، فإنه لايحصل المقصود من التلاوة بذلك، كما ثبت فى الحديث أنه قال عليه السلام: اكلفوا من العمل ما تطيقون، فإن الله لا يمل حتى تملوا وقال: أحب الأعمال إلى الله ما داوم عليه صاحبه- وفى اللفظ الآخر- أحب الأعمال إلى الله أدومها وإن قل

“Recite the Quran as long as your hearts are inclined to it. When they differ from it, then get up (and remove yourselves) from (reciting) it. (Bukhari & Muslim)

Ibn Katheer said, in explantion of the above hadith:

Rasool (SAW) has instructed this Nation to recite the Qur’an as long as their hearts are attune to the recitation, thinking and pondering over its meaning. They are not to be recited it while they are preoccupied or bored with its reading. In those cases, they will not be achieveing the goal of its reading. Hence, they should discontinue reading under conditions like that. As it has been affirmed in the following hadith.

“Do those deeds which you can do easily, as Allah will not get
tired (of giving rewards) till you get bored and tired (of performing religious deeds).”
The most beloved prayer to the Prophet was the one that was done regularly (throughout
the life) even if it were little.
(Bukhari)
