Assalama alaikoum,

This text: 'If you want to talk to Allah, then pray salah. If you want Allah to talk to you, then read the Quran'.'

First of all does the above sentence have any basis and secondly, how to interpret this sentence, literally or figuratively etc? And if Allah (swt) would talk to you while you read quran than wouldn't Allah (swt) talk to you also in salah because in salah you also recite quran, so doesn't Allah (swt) talk to you in both situations: in salah and while reading quran?
