The immense reward of learning and reciting the Qur’aan Majeed

عن عقبة بن عامر، قال: خرج رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ونحن في الصفة، فقال: أيكم يحب أن يغدو كل يوم إلى بطحان، أو إلى العقيق، فيأتي منه بناقتين كوماوين في غير إثم، ولا قطع رحم؟ فقلنا: يا رسول الله نحب ذلك، قال: أفلا يغدو أحدكم إلى المسجد فيعلم، أو يقرأ آيتين من كتاب الله عز وجل، خير له من ناقتين، وثلاث خير له من ثلاث، وأربع خير له من أربع، ومن أعدادهن من الإبل (صحيح مسلم، الرقم: 803)

Hazrat Uqbah ibn Aamir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once came to us while we were seated at Suffah and asked, “Would any one of you like to go to the market of Buthaan or Aqeeq and fetch from there two humped she-camels (i.e. of the finest breed) without committing any sin or severing a tie of kinship?” We replied that everyone of us would love to do so. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then said, “Going to the musjid and teaching or reciting two aayaat of the Qur’aan Majeed is better than acquiring two she-camels, (teaching or reciting) three aayaat are better than acquiring three she-camels, and (teaching or reciting) four aayaat are better than acquiring four she-camels, and an equal number of male-camels (i.e. teaching or reciting aayaat of the Qur’aan Majeed is better than the same number of male-camels).”

Hazrat Abu Sa’eed Khudri (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “People do not sit in any gathering in which they do not recite Durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) except that it will be a means of regret for them (on the day of Qiyaamah), even though they may enter Jannah, on account of them seeing the reward (which they failed to acquire by neglecting to recite Durood).”
