The book of Hadith demands all Muslims to obey the words of Quran

Reader comment on item: Study the Koran?

Submitted by zuma (Singapore), Sep 1, 2014 at 10:50

(Book #21, Hadith #244)-Sahih Bukhari:

'Narrated Samura bin Jundab: The Prophet said in his narration of a dream that he saw, "He whose head was being crushed with a stone was one who LEARNT THE QURAN AND NEVER ACTED ON IT, and slept ignoring the compulsory prayers.'

As the phrase, whose head was being crushed with a stone, is mentioned above with the phrase, learnt the Quran and never acted on it, it demands Muslims to obey the words of Quran.
