Hadith Explanation

Double Reward for Weak Student

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Such a person as recites the Quran and masters it by heart, will be with the (angels) honourable and obedient. And such a person as exerts himself to learn the Quran by heart, and recites it with great difficulty, will have a double reward.” [Sahih Bukhari]

Allah’s system of reward is based on intention and effort. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) is the Bestower of capabilities, opportunities, and success. Thus, a person is not rewarded for being intelligent, but for using his/her intelligence in Allah’s Path for His pleasure alone; and they are rewarded for the effort that they make even if the outcome appears to be fruitless, according to the standards by which we judge outcomes in the world.

There is no one more fair, nor more appreciative, than Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) in rewarding His creatures.

To learn the Quran, with ease or with difficulty, is highly rewarded by Allah (subhana wa ta’ala).
