Alhamdulillah during the month of Ramadan, Muslims are enthusiastic about reading and readingtadabburi Al-Quran, especially in Last 10 nights. So enthusiastic about reading the Koran, some can finish it and finish it several times. However, have we ever felt a change in our faith and hearts? Have there been any additions? Or is the Koran just read and has no effect?

It is clear that the Al-Quran is not just read, but istadabburi, studied and practiced. Allah Ta'ala says,

A blessed Book which We have sent down to you, that they may contemplate its verses, and that those of understanding may remember.

“This is a book that We have sent down to you full of blessings so that they may pay attention to its verses and that those who have minds may learn” (QS. Shaad:29).

It's true, we don't have to cry all the time when reading the Koran. However, if in your entire life or during Ramadan your eyes have never been touched by the Koran, then we have to do a lot of self-introspection. Because one of the characteristics of a believer is that his heart trembles and his faith increases when the Koran is read and his eyes can cry with joy.

His heart trembled and his eyes could cry

Allah mentions one of the characteristics of a believer is that his heart is sensitive to the Al-Quran. Be sensitive and tremble when God's name is mentioned. Allah Ta'alasaid,

The believers are only those who, when God is mentioned, are terrified in their hearts, and when His verses are recited to them, it increases them in faith, and in their Lord they put their trust.

“Indeed those who believe are those whose hearts tremble when the name of Allah is mentioned and when His verses are read to them, their faith increases because of it and only to Their Lord, they trust." (QS. Al-Anfal: 2).

And the eyes sometimes cry when the Al-Quran is read. Here is the story of our role model the Prophet sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallamwho shed tears when the Al-Quran was read. From Ibn Mas'ud radhiallahu 'anhusaid,

The Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace, said to me: “Recite the Qur’an to me.” I said: O Messenger of God, should I recite it to you, and to you was it revealed? He said: “I love to hear it from someone else.” So I recited Surah An-Nisa to him, until I came to this verse: {How then when We bring from every nation a witness and bring you as a witness against these} [An-Nisa] 40] He said, “It is enough for you now,” so he turned to him, and lo, His eyes are shedding tears.)

“One time the Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace, said to me, "Read the Qur'an to me." So I said to him, "O Messenger of Allah, should I read the Qur'an to you while the Qur'an was revealed to you?". So he replied, "Indeed, I am happy to hear it read by someone other than myself." So I started reciting Surah An-Nisaa' to him. Until finally when I reached this verse (which means), "Then what will happen when We bring a witness for every nation and We make you a witness over them." (QS. an-Nisaa': 40). So he said, "Enough, come here." Then I turned to him and it turned out that his eyes were flowing with tears" (HR. Bukhari [4763] and Muslim [800]).

The eyes cry but the heart is happy

How not happy? While the tears flowed profusely, he muttered, "finally, finally, finally, these eyes are crying for God? How unhappy, he immediately remembered the importance of crying for God. Prophet MuhammadSallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam said,

A man who has cried out of fear of God will not enter Hell until the milk returns to the udder

“A person who cries out of fear of Allah will not enter hell until the milk [that has been expressed] can return to the place where it came out” (HR. Tirmidhi no. 1633).

There are seven whom God will shade in His shade on the Day when there will be no shade but His shade....and a man who mentioned God alone, and his eyes filled with tears.

“There are seven groups that will be sheltered by God on a day when there is no shade except His shade; …. and [7] a person who remembers Allah when he is alone until his eyes flow with tears (crying)" (HR. Bukhari [629] and Muslim [1031]).

Dan sabda beliau Shallallâhu ‘alaihi wa sallam,

Two eyes that are not touched by fire, an eye that wept out of fear of God, and an eye that spent the night guarding for the sake of God

“There are two eyes that will not be touched by hell fire; the eyes that cry because they fear God, and the eyes that watch at night because they guard the defense of the Muslims in [jihad] in the way of God" (HR. Tirmidhi [1639], authenticated by Shaykh Al-Albani in Sahih Sunan At-Tirmidhi [1338]).

So hopefully it's useful.
