Acting Upon Al-Qur’an

Abu ‘Abdul-Rahmān Al-Sulami stated, 

“Those who taught the Qur’ān – such as ‘Uthmān ibn ‘Affān, ‘Abdullāh ibn Mas’ood and others – told us that when they learned 10 verses from the Prophet SAW they would not go beyond them until they had learned the knowledge contained in them and how to apply it in deed. Hence, we learned the Qur’ān and the deeds together.”
