Narrated Abu Musa Al-Ash’ari (Radi-Allahu ‘anhu):
The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) said,
“The example of him (a believer) who recites the Qur’an is like that of a citron which tastes good and smells good.
And he (a believer) who does not recite the Qur’an is like a date which is good in taste but has no smell.
And the example of a dissolute wicked person who recites the Qur’an is like the Raihana (sweet basil) which smells good but tastes bitter.
And the example of a dissolute wicked person who does not recite the Qur’an is like the colocynth which tastes bitter and has no smell.”
