2. Uqbah-b-A’mer reported that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) came out while we were in Suffah and asked:

“Who among you likes to go out every day at morn to Bathhan or Aqiq and bring two large humped she-camels without committing a sin and severing blood-tie?

We replied: “O Apostle of Allah! Every one of us likes that. He said: “Is it not better for you that you should come our at morn to the mosque and teach or learn two verses from the Book of Allah than (to have) two she camels, and three verses better than three she-camels, and four verses better than four camels and their equivalent number better than the equivalent she-camels?” (Muslim)

3. Abu Huriarah (RA) reported that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:

“Does anyone of you like, when he returns to his family, to find therein three big fat pregnant she-camels? Yes, we replied. He said: Then three verses which anyone of you reads in his prayer are better than three big fat pregnant she-camels.”

4. Ayesha (RA) reported that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:

“One who has got expert knowledge in the Qur’an is with the honourable pious scribes; and one who reads the Qur’an and struggles therein while it appears difficult to him gets double rewards.”

5. Ibne Omer (RA) reported that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:

There is no envy except for two: a man whom Allah has given the Qur’an and who stands up by it throughout the night and throughout the day, and the man whom Allah has given wealth and who spends there from throughout the night and throughout the day.” (Agreed upon)

6. Abu Musa (RA) reported that Rasulullha (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:

“The parable of the believer who reads the Qur’an is parable of a citron whose fragrance as well as taste is pleasant, and the parable of believer who does not read the Qur’an is the parable of the fresh date that has got no fragrance but its taste is sweet, and the parable of the hypocrite who does not read the Qur’an is like the parable of the basil which has got no fragrance but whose taste is bitter, and the parable of the hypocrite who reads the Qur’an is the parable of the fragrant flower which has got a pleasant smell but whose taste is bitter. (Agreed upon)

And in a narration: The believer who reads the Qur’an and acts upon it is like an action and the believer who neither reads the Qur’an nor acts upon it is like a fresh date.”

7. Omar-b-Al Khattab (RA) reported that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Allah will raise up (in status) some people by this Book and bring down others.” (Muslim)

8. Hadhrat Abu Syed Khudri (RA) reported Osaid-b-Huzair (RA): That while he was reciting Surat Al-Baqara (The Cow) at night, and his horse was tied beside him, the horse was suddenly startled and troubled. When he stopped reciting, the horse became quiet, and when he started again, the horse was startled again.

Then he stopped reciting and the horse became quiet too. He started reciting again and the horse was startled and troubled once again. Then he stopped reciting and his son, Yahya was beside the horse. He was afraid that the horse might trample on him.

When he took the boy away and looked towards the sky, he could not see it. The next morning he informed the Prophet who said, “Recite, O Ibn Hudair!

Recite, O Ibn Hudair!” Ibn Hudair replied, “O Allah’s Apostle! My son, Yahya was near the horse and I was afraid that it might trample on him, so I looked towards the sky, and went to him.

When I looked at the sky, I saw something like a cloud containing what looked like lamps, so I went out in order not to see it.” The Prophet said, “Do you know what that was?” Ibn Hudair replied, “No.” The Prophet said, “Those were Angels who came near to you for your voice and if you had kept on reciting till dawn, it would have remained there till morning when people would have seen it as it would not have disappear. (Agreed upon)

9. Bara’s reported: A man was reciting the chapter Cave (Surah Al-Kahaf) where there was a horse by his side tied up with two ropes.

A cloud covered him and it began to come nearer and nearer while his horse was jumping up. When it was dawn, he came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and narrated it to him. He said: That was the consolation that came down with the Qur’an. (Agreed upon)

10. Abu Syed Al-Mualla reported: while I was praying within the mosque, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) called me but I did not reply to him. Thereafter I came to him and asked: O Apostle of Allah! Verily I was praying.

He said: Did not Allah say: Respond to Allah and to his Apostle when he calls you? Then he said: Shall I not teach you the most meritorious chapter of the Qur’an before you go out of the mosque? He took hold of my hand. When we wished to come out, I said: O Apostle of Allah! You have said that you would teach me the most meritorious chapter of the Qur’an.

He said: All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds, that is the seven oft repeated verses and the great Qur’an which I have brought.

11. Ziyad-b-Labeed reported that the Prophet (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) mentioned something. He said: That (will come to pass) at the time when learning will depart.

I asked: O Messenger of Allah, how will learning depart while we have been reading the Qur’an and educating our children to read it and while our children will educate their children to read it up to the resurrection Day? He said:

O Ziyad! may thy mother be heavy with thee! If I had been the most learned man at Medina, I could have taught you. Do not the Jews and Christains read the Torah and the Bible while they do not know what is therein? (Ibne Majah, Tirmizi)

12. Abu Huriarah (RA) reported that the Apostle of Allah said: “Don’t make your houses graveyards. The devil flees away from the house wherein the chapter ‘Baqarah’

(2nd chapter of Al-Qur’an) is read. (Muslim)

13. Abu Omamah (RA) reported: I heard the Apostle of Allah (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) say: “Read the Qur’an; as it will be an intercessor on the Resurrection Day for its readers.

Read the two brilliant chapters ‘Baqarah and Aal-e-Imran’ because they will be like two clouds (as it were) on the resurrection Day, or two canopies, or two flocks of birds in rows, giving shade to their readers. Read the chapter ‘Baqarah’.

To take recourse to it is a blessing and to give it up is a cause of grief, and the indolent will be unable to overtake it. (Muslim)

14. Nawas-b-Sam’an reported: I heard the Apostle of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) say: “The Qur’an will be brought on the Resurrection Day along with those who used to act on it. The chapters ‘The Baqarah’ and ‘The family of Imran’ will come in advance of it as if they will be like two clouds or two black canopies with a shining light between both of them, or both will be like two flocks of birds in rows giving shade to their readers. (Muslim)

15. Obai-b-Ka’ab (RA) reported that the Apostle of Allah (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) asked: “O Abul Munzir! Do you know as to which verse of the Book of Almighty Allah is the greatest near you?” I said: “Allah and His Apostle know the best.” I asked: “O Abu Munzir! do you know as to which verse of Book of Almighty Allah is the greatest near you?” I said: He is Allah; there is no deity but He, the Ever-living, the Ever-subsisting (2: 255).

Then he struck my breast with his hand and said:”0 Abu Munzir! may learning welcome thee with cheers!” (Muslim)

16. Hadhrat Abu Huriarah (RA) reported that the Apostle of Allah (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) entrusted me with the charge of Zakat during Ramadhan.

Somebody came to me and began to take away some food-stuffs. I over-took him and said: I must take you to the Prophet.

He said: I am a needy man with a big family in my charge, and so I have got a pressing need.

He said: Then I left him go free and went at the dawn (to the Prophet). The Prophet asked: “O Abu Huriarah! What did your prisoner do last night?” I said: “O Apostle of Allah! He complained of a pressing need and a big family.

Then I felt pity for him and let him go away.” He said: “Behold! He belied you and he will soon return.” Then I came to know that he would soon turn on account of the Prophet’s saying ‘that he would soon turn back’.

I noticed that he came to take food-stuffs. So I arrested him and said: “I must take you to the Prophet of Allah.” He said: “Leave me as I am a needy man with a big family in my charge.

I shall not come again.” Then I showed kindness on him and let him have his way. I went at the dawn and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) asked me: “O Abu Huriarah! What did your prisoner do?” I replied: “O Apostle of Allah! he complained of a pressing want and a big family.

Then I took compassion on him and let him have his way.” He said: “Behold! He belied you and will come soon back.” Then I noticed that he came to take the food- stuffs.

I arrested him and said: “I must take you to the Prophet and this is the last of three times. Verily you promised that you would not come again but you have come.” He said: “Leave me; I shall teach you some words with which Allah may give you benefit.

When you go to your bed, read the verse of Throne, “He is Allah, there is no deity but He, the Ever-living, The Ever-Subsisting, till you finish the verse (2:255Q). A protector from Allah will not cease to come over you, and the devil will not come to you till morning.” Then I let him to go his way.

I went at the dawn and the Prophet asked me: “What did your prisoner do?” I replied: “He promised me that he would teach me some words with which Allah will do me benefit.” He said: “Behold! he has spoken the truth to you though he is a great liar.

Don’t you know with whom you were speaking since three nights?” I said: “No.” He said: “He is the devil.” (Bukhari)

17. Ibn Abbas (RA) reported: When Jibraeel (AS) was seated near the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), he heard a voice from above. He raised up his head and said: It is door of Heaven which has been opened today and which was never opened before except today.

An angel got down from it. He said: He is an angel who has come down to the earth today and who did never come down before but today.

He greeted and said: Give good news of two lights which you have been given and which no prophet before you was given — the Opening of the Book and the last portion of the chapter Baqarah (2:84-86). You will never read a letter from them for which you will not be given (reward) there for. (Muslim)

They replied: And how can one read one-third of the Qur’an? He said: ‘Say, He is Allah, the One’, (i.e., Surah Ikhlas) it will be equivalent to one- third of the Qur’an. (Bukhari from Abu Syeed)

21. Ayesha (RA) reported that the Prophet (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) sent a man in command of an army, and the latter used to read (the Qur’an) for his companions in their prayer and end with ‘Say, He is Allah, the Single (1 12Q).

Ayesha (RA) reported; whenever the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) went to his bed every night, he used to join together his palms, blow breath unto them and read therein: ‘Say, He is Allah, the One (1 12Q), ‘Say, I seek refuge with the Lord of the dawn (1 13Q), ‘Say, I seek refuge with the Lord of men (1 14Q), and rub therewith his body as far as he could, beginning there with from his head and face and what was projecting from his body. He used to do it thrice. (Agreed upon)
