" لا تُحّرِّكْ بِهِ لِسَانَكَ لِتَعْجَلَ بِهِ. إِنَّ عَلَيْنَا جَمْعَهُ وَقُرْءَانَهُ. فَإِذَا قَرَأْنَاهُ فَاتَّبِعْ قُرْءَانَهُ." ( سورة القِيَامَة 16-18) “Do not remove your tongue to hastily [learn] it. Surely we will collect it and recite it. So, when We recite it, follow its recital”. (Surah Al-Quiyamah, Ayahs 16-18).
