Allah’s great Reward for the Quran learner

Ibn-Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them both) said:

“The people of knowledge had the privilege of joining Omar’s council and he would consult them, be

they old or young.” (Sahih Al-Bukhary).

This narration confirms the value of youth, and how not to underestimate young people if they are

righteous and knowledgeable; for Omar’s council was not merely a gathering! He was the

commander of the faithful and the Caliph of Islam, he is the head of the world and a symbol of


What he used to take into consideration when giving people precedence in his council, and his

criterion, was knowledge: knowing the Quran by heart.

It is a must to restore our respect for Quran knowledge and to base it on young people’s hard work,

dedication, comprehension, and awareness.


Allah’s great Reward for the Quran learner


Learning Quran gives the Muslim knowledge about all aspects of life, also brings him/her near to

the Creator, and will be proof of the great rewards of his her good deeds on the Day of Judgment.

“The Messenger of Allah said: ‘Allah has His own people among mankind.’ They said: ‘O Messenger

of Allah, who are they?’ He said: ‘The Quran learner, the people of Allah and those who are closest to


Angels descend, tranquility and mercy to the Quran and Quran learner.

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Any group of people that assemble in one of the Houses of Allah

to recite the Book of Allah, learning and teaching it, tranquility will descend upon them, mercy will

engulf them, angels will surround them and Allah will make mention of them to those (the angels)

in His proximity.”



The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Whoever recites a letter from the Book of Allah, he will be

credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a ten-fold reward. I do not say that Alif-Lam-Mim is

one letter, but Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter and Mim is a letter.”

[At- Tirmidhi].


The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “The best amongst you is the one who the Quran learner and

teaches it.”

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “The believer who recites the Qur’an is like a citron whose

fragrance is sweet and whose taste is delicious. A believer who does not recite the Qur’an is like a

date-fruit that has no fragrance but has a sweet taste. The hypocrite who recites the Qur’an is like

basil whose fragrance is so sweet, but its taste is bitter. The hypocrite who does not recite the Qur’an

is like a colocynth which has no fragrance and its taste is bitter.”

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Memorizing the Quran is better than the enjoyment of this world

The Messenger of Allahصلى الله عليه وسلم came out upon a circle of his Companions and said: ‘what has

caused you to gather for this sitting?’ They said: ‘We have gathered for this sitting to remember

Allah, and praise Him for His having guided us to Islam, and having bestowed blessings upon us.’ So

he said: ‘By Allah, nothing caused you to gather for this sitting except for that?’ He said: ‘Indeed, I

did not ask you out of suspicion, verily Jibrail came to me and informed me that Allah boasts of you

to the angels.’

An-Nawwas bin Sam’an (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying, “The Qur’an and its people who applied it, will be brought on the Day of Resurrection preceded with Surat Al-Baqarah and Surat Al-‘Imran arguing on behalf of those who applied them.”



The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “He who does not memorize any part from the Quran he is like the

ruined house.” [At-Tirmidhi].


The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “The one who is proficient in the recitation of the Qur’an will be with the honorable and obedient scribes (angels) and he who recites the Qur’an and finds it difficult to recite, doing his best to recite it in the best way possible, will have two rewards.”

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


The Importance of Quran reading can be understood through many examples.

1-Surah Al-Mulk reading daily at night will save the person from punishment in the grave and it is

Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ): “He (ﷺ) used to recite Surah As-Sajdah and Surah Al-Mulk

before sleeping.”

2-Surah Al-Kahf comes in a hadith: “Whoever memorized the first ten ayahs of Surah Al-Kahf will

be saved from Dajjal.” (Sahih Muslim)

3-Surah Al-Fatiha, Muslims recite this surah in every prayer. Its benefit is that it completes our

prayer. Recitation of this Surah is also good for relieving soul pains. The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ)

said, “Shall I teach you the greatest Surah in the Qur’an before you leave the mosque?” Then he (ﷺ),

took me by the hand, and when we were about to step out, I reminded him of his promise to teach

me the greatest Surah in the Qur’an. He (ﷺ) said, “It is ‘Alhamdu lillahi Rabbil ‘Alamin (i.e., Surat

Al-Fatihah) which is As-Sab’ Al-Mathani (i.e., the seven oft-repeated Ayat) and the Great Quran

which is given to me.”


The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: ‘What do you recite in your Salat?’ He said: ‘I recite Umm Al-

Qur’an.’ So the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: ‘By the One in Whose Hand is my soul! The like of it has

neither been revealed in the Tawrah, nor the Injil nor the Zabur, nor in the Furqan. It is the seven

oft-repeated, and the Magnificent Qur’an which I was given.’”



And fear Allah… How different:

a heart that goes after various websites watching the haram is from a heart that feels pain when

mistakenly comes across a wicked image in a website or an advertisement and continues to dispel its

reflection in his memory.

 their understanding in terms of knowing Allah’s book and His will.

 they are in terms of the flooding spiritual enlightenments and faith meanings.

they are in terms of fearing Allahعزوجل and subservience to Him.

(Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty ‘that will make

for greater purity for them’)
