This is how the companions of Rasulullah Sallillahu Alaihi WaSallam approached to Quran. "He did not read many verses of the Qur’an in one session, as he understood that this would lay an unbearable burden of duties and responsibilities on his shoulders. At most he would read ten verses, memorize them, and then act upon them. We know this from a tradition reported by Abdullah ibn Masud." Extract from the "Milestone" by Sayyid Qutb. Page 31.
