The beauty of the Quran lies within it

Could you provide a reference for this?

Whenever Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) saw a Mushaf [copy of the Quran] decorated with silver or gold he would say: ‘Do you tempt the thief when its beauty is in its inside’?


Imam Abu ‘Ubayd Al Qasim ibn Sallam and Imam Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah (rahimahumallah) have recorded this statement of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).

(Fadailul Quran, Hadith: 907, Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 30860)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
