Question:

Salaam Alaikum,

I would like to know exactly why do we hold the Holy Qur'an on our heads 
during Amal of Shabe Qader?

Answer:

The Holy Quran was revealed on Lailatul-Qadr (Night of Power)  We consider
the Ma'sumin as the living and speaking Quran. Therefore, in the Amals, we
are praying to Allah with both the silent or written Quran (on our heads)
as well as the living or speaking Quran.

This is when we mention the names of Allah, the Prophet, and the
Ahlul-Bayt 10 times each. The fact that we put the Quran on our head is a
sign of respect and reverence. 

Hence we beseech Allah by the thaqalayn - the speaking and the silent Qur'an.

Please remember us in your dua's

Liyakatali
