Narrated Aboo Moosa Al-Asharee (radhi Allaahu anha):- Allaah’s Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi wasallam) said,
The example of a believer who recited the Qur’aan, is that of a orange which smells good and tastes good; and the example of a believer who does not recite the Qur’aan, is that of a date which has no smell but tastes sweet; and the example of a hypocrite who recites the Qur’aan, is that of Ar-Reyhan (an aromatic plant) which smells good but tastes bitter; and the example of a hypocrite who does not recite the Qur’aan, is that of a colocynth plant which has no smell and is bitter in taste.
[Saheeh Al-Bukhaari, Hadeeth No. 338, Vol. 7]
At RiS we’ve been educating people about this hadith as a means of encouraging them to Connect With The Qur’an!
The other thing we’ve been doing is giving people the opportunity to undertake a #FatihaHealthCheck . Basically we had our teacher’s online delivering a 5 – 10 minute lesson on Surah Faitha!
Qur’an classes, actually happened from inside the orange!

Until next time.
