Ash Shaykh Abdur Razzaaq bin Abdul Mohsin Al Badr (Allah preserve them both) wrote:
Reciting the Quraan is not merely reading it’s letters, or memorising its verses and chapters; rather indeed the reality of reciting the Quran is reading, understanding and action.
Therefore, whoever does not act on the Quran, he is not from its people by merely memorising it or (reading) its letters.
Rather a person cannot be from the people of the Quran until (acting upon) the Quran is seen in him – by way of worship, manners and staying far away from that which angers Allah.
