Koran is the worship of Mokar'rabeen
(people who are near to Allah)
A righteous man once got confused how to come to Allah, by remembrance or by Koran.
When they asked imam Abul-Aza'im, he said: "Koran, Koran my dear brothers, die by it, live by it, eat by it, drink by it, sleep by it and apply it all over your life," then he said: "Noble Koran is the plentiful spring for righteous people, their rich garden, their rich basin, their witnessed favor and it is their imam even if it is silent, they ask it before deeds, if it permits, they hastily do, but if it forbids, they stop and ask for forgiveness."
Noble Koran is the work by which a person comes to Allah to grant him favors. It is not a book for reciting by tongue, but it is a book for reciting by tongue, contemplating by mind and working by organs. This is the way of the people of grants who seek grants from Allah; a man of them is as the prophet says: "Be Koran walking among people." A man of them is an example of Koran in his deeds, movements, stillness and all his statuses, because he follows the method of Koran, the method of Koran is the secret of life for everything, so they followed it to get grants from Allah.
Our Imam and our sheikh Mohammed Ali Salama was like this, he told us that at his beginning, he used to finish Koran once every four days, i.e. he recited one quarter of Koran every day, he used to go to the mosque in Tafnees where he started work at two o'clock at night and stayed until dawn, what did he do? He did as Allah says:
"In some parts of the night offer the Salat (prayer) with it (i.e. recite the Koran in the prayer), as an additional prayer (Tahajjud optional prayer Nawafil) for you (O Muhammad). It may be that your Lord will raise you to Maqaman Mahmuda (a station of praise and glory, i.e. the highest degree in Paradise!)." 17-79
Whoever wants to have Maqaman Mahmuda, he should stay up at night so that Allah grants him and makes him among the people who watches his bounties on condition that it never opposes his work and Muslims' interests with him as we mentioned before.
