Quran was revealed for action not only for recital

Fudayl ibn ‘Iyaad 187 AH (May Allah have mercy on him) said,

انما أنزل القران ليعمل به فاتخذ الناس قراءته عملا

“The Quran was only sent in order to be acted upon, but the people took its recitation as action.”*

*Meaning, they did not ponder over the verses nor did they act upon what was recited.
