Hadith on Quran: Learning verses of Quran better than all worldly goods

‘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, “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, “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.

عَنْ عُقْبَةَ بْنِ عَامِرٍ قَالَ خَرَجَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَنَحْنُ فِي الصُّفَّةِ فَقَالَ أَيُّكُمْ يُحِبُّ أَنْ يَغْدُوَ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ إِلَى بُطْحَانَ أَوْ إِلَى الْعَقِيقِ فَيَأْتِيَ مِنْهُ بِنَاقَتَيْنِ كَوْمَاوَيْنِ فِي غَيْرِ إِثْمٍ وَلَا قَطْعِ رَحِمٍ فَقُلْنَا يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ نُحِبُّ ذَلِكَ قَالَ 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
