Al-Mundhiri on reciting the Quran

Al-Mundhiri records in his book al-Targhib wal-Tarhib:

التَّرْغِيب فِي قِرَاءَة الْقُرْآن فِي الصَّلَاة وَغَيرهَا وَفضل تعلمه وتعليمه وَالتَّرْغِيب فِي سُجُود التِّلَاوَة

Encouragement to recite the Quran in prayer and elsewhere, the virtue of teaching and learning it, and encouragement to performs prostrations of recitation.

Abdullah ibn Mas’ud reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

مَنْ قَرَأَ حَرْفًا مِنْ كِتَابِ اللَّهِ فَلَهُ بِهِ حَسَنَةٌ وَالْحَسَنَةُ بِعَشْرِ أَمْثَالِهَا لَا أَقُولُ الم حَرْفٌ وَلَكِنْ أَلِفٌ حَرْفٌ وَلَامٌ حَرْفٌ وَمِيمٌ حَرْفٌ

Whoever recites a letter from the Book of Allah, he will receive one good deed as ten good deeds like it. I do not say that Alif Lam Mim is one letter, but rather Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter, and Mim is a letter.

‘Uqbah ibn ‘Amir reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, came out to us while we were in the shelter. The Prophet said:

أَيُّكُمْ يُحِبُّ أَنْ يَغْدُوَ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ إِلَى بُطْحَانَ أَوْ إِلَى الْعَقِيقِ فَيَأْتِيَ مِنْهُ بِنَاقَتَيْنِ كَوْمَاوَيْنِ فِي غَيْرِ إِثْمٍ وَلَا قَطْعِ رَحِمٍ

Which of you would love to go out in the morning each day to Buthan or ‘Aqiq and bring with him two mature she-camels, without sinning or severing family ties?

We said, “O Messenger of Allah, we would love that.” The Prophet said:

أَفَلَا يَغْدُو أَحَدُكُمْ إِلَى الْمَسْجِدِ فَيَعْلَمُ أَوْ يَقْرَأُ آيَتَيْنِ مِنْ كِتَابِ اللهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ خَيْرٌ لَهُ مِنْ نَاقَتَيْنِ وَثَلَاثٌ خَيْرٌ لَهُ مِنْ ثَلَاثٍ وَأَرْبَعٌ خَيْرٌ لَهُ مِنْ أَرْبَعٍ وَمِنْ أَعْدَادِهِنَّ مِنَ الْإِبِلِ

Does not one of you go out in the morning to the mosque to learn or recite two verses from the Book of Allah Almighty? It is better for him than two camels, three is better than three, four is better than four and whatever number of camels.

Abu Musa al-Ashari reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

The example of one who recites the Quran and memorizes it is that of one with the ‘righteous and noble scribes’ (80:15). The example of one who recites the Quran and is committed to it, although it is difficult for him, is that of one with a double reward.

He will be given the dominion in his right hand and eternal life in his left hand. A crown of dignity will be placed on his head and his parents will be clothed in two garments, which no people from the world could ever afford. They will say: Why have you dressed us with this?
