Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: "Indeed, the one who does not have the Qur'an inside him (his heart), is like the ruined house."
حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مَنِيعٍ، حَدَّثَنَا جَرِيرٌ، عَنْ قَابُوسِ بْنِ أَبِي ظَبْيَانَ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ إِنَّ الَّذِي لَيْسَ فِي جَوْفِهِ شَيْءٌ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ كَالْبَيْتِ الْخَرِبِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ صَحِيحٌ ‏.‏

Comments (Darussalam)

He who does not know any part of the Qur'an, his heart is empty of goodness, blessings and spirituality; because the inhabitation of the heart with life, beauty and freshness is with !man and the Qur'an, the same way as the inhabitation of a house is with its dwellers and its beauty and adornment is because of the household things in it.
