Allah revealed the Qur'an, so that people would recite it as a form of 'Ibadah (worship) and apply its rulings. It is a miracle which proves the prophethood of Muhammad (peace be upon him). As for the practice that you are inquiring about, (Part No. 2; Page No. 483) it is not legislated by Allah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
