This Qur’an can either be your blessed reward, or it can become your unexpected burden

Abu Musa Al-Ash’ari said:

إن هذا القرآن كائن لكم أجرا، وكائن عليكم وزرا، فاتبعوا القرآن و لا يتبعنكم القرآن ! فإنه من اتبع القرآن هبط به على رياض الجنة ومن تبعه القرآن زخ في قفاه، فقذفه في النار

“This Qur’an can either be your blessed reward, or it can become your unexpected burden on the day of reckoning. Follow the Qur’an and do not let the Qur’an follow you! For whosoever follows the Qur’an, it will lead him to the blissful gardens of janna, and whosoever is followed by the Qur’an, it will chase him and force him until it shoves him into the abyss of hell-fire (naar al-jahannam)”.

[“Hilyat Al-Awliya”, 1/257].
