Superiority of a person who masters the Qur’aan

461. Narrated Aisha (radhi Allaahu anha):-

The Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi wasallam) said,

Such a person as recites the Qur’aan and masters it by heart, will be with the (angels) honourable and obedient (in heaven). And such a person as exerts himself to learn the Qur’aan by heart, and recites it with great difficulty, will have a double reward.

[Sahih Al-Bukhari, Hadith No. 459, Vol. 6]
