A narration attributed to ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) regarding pondering over the Verses of the Quran

Question

Is the following narration authentic:

تدبروا آيات القرآن، واعتبروا به فإنه أبلغ العبر

 

Answer

I have not come across this statement of Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) in any authentic, traditional primary or secondary Hadith source.

This narration appears in certain Shi’i sources.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
