Five Types Of Abandonment Of The Qur’aan


By Ibn Al-Qayyim(Rahimahullah)

O Muslims! O Believers of the Qur’aan! Beware you do not fall into those whom the Prophet (saw) will complain about to his Lord on the Day of Judgement:

“And the Messenger (will) say: O My Lord, indeed my people took this Qur’aan as something worthy of being abandoned.” [25:30]
The scholar, Ibn Al Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah (d. 758 AH) said;

There are various types of “abandonment” of the Qur’aan:

1) To abandon listening to it and believing in it.

2) To abandon acting upon it, and ignoring its lawful and prohibited ordinances (halaal and haraam), even if one believes in it and recites it.

3) To abandon judging by it, and resorting to it as a judge when there are differences in the essence of the religion or other matters.

4) To abandon pondering over it, and understanding it, and seeking the explanation of it.

5) To abandon using it as a cure in all types od diseases of the heart, and instead to seek to cure these diseases by other means.

And all of these categories are included in the statement of Allaah:

“And the Messenger (will) say: O My Lord, indeed my people took this Qur’aan as something worthy of being abandoned.” [25:30]

even though some of these types of abandonment are worse than others.
