(

(Aali Imran 3:103)

And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allaah (i.e. this Qur'aan), and be not divided among yourselves, and remember Allaah's Favour on you, for you were enemies one to another but He joined your hearts together, so that, by His Grace, you became brethren (in Islaamic Faith), and you were on the brink of a pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus Allaah makes His Ayaat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.,) clear to you, that you may be guided. (Aali `Imraan 3:103)

A

Al Baqarah and Aali `Imraan

An-Nawwas bin Sam`an (May Allaah be pleased with him) reported: "I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) saying, "The Qur'aan and its people who applied it, will be brought on the Day of Resurrection preceded with Surat Al-Baqarah and Surat Aal-`Imraan arguing on behalf of those who applied them.'' [Muslim]

Al-Baqarah 2:121

Those (who embraced Islaam from Banee Israa'eel) to whom We gave the Book [the Tauraat (Torah)] [or those (Muhammad's Peace be upon him companions) to whom We have given the Book (the Qur'aan)] recite it (i.e. obey its orders and follow its teachings) as it should be recited (i.e. followed), they are the ones that believe therein. And whoso disbelieves in it (the Qur'aan), those are they who are the losers.  (Al-Baqarah 2:121)

An Intercessor

Abu Umamah (May Allaah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) saying, "Read the Qur'aan, for it will come as an intercessor for its reciters on the Day of Resurrection. [Muslim]

B

be with the righteous scribes

Aa`ishah narrated that the Prophet (Sallallaahu `alayhi was-sallam) said, "Such a person as recites the Qur'aan and masters it by heart, will be with the noble righteous scribes (in Heaven). And such a person exerts himself to learn the quran by heart, and recites it with great difficulty, will have a double reward." [al-Bukhaaree]

best of you

`Uthman bin `Affan (May Allaah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said, "The best amongst you is the one who learns the Qur'aan and teaches it.''  [Al-Bukhaaree]

C

citron

Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari (May Allaah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said, "The believer who recites the Qur'aan is like a citron whose fragrance is sweet and whose taste is delicious. A believer who does not recite the Qur'aan is like a date-fruit which has no fragrance but has a sweet taste. The hypocrite who recites the Qur'aan is like a colocynth whose fragrance is so sweet, but its taste is bitter. The hypocrite who does not recite the Qur'aan is like basil which has no fragrance and its taste is bitter.''  [Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim].

E

each letter is ten rewards

The Prophet (Sallallahu `alayhi was-sallam) said: “Whoever reads one letter of the Book of Allaah will have one hasanah (reward) for doing so, and every hasanah will be multiplied by 10. I do not say that ‘alif, laam, meem’ is one letter, but ‘alif’ is a letter, ‘laam’ is a letter and ‘meem’ is a letter.’” [at-Tirmidhee - classed as hasan]

elevated or abased

`Umar bin Al-Khattaab (May Allaah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said, "Verily, Allaah elevates some people with this Qur'aan and abases others.'' [Muslim]

envy is justified

Ibn `Umar (May Allaah be pleased with them) reported: The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said: "Envy is justified in regard to two types of persons only: a man whom Allaah has given knowledge of the Qur'aan, and so he recites it during the night and during the day; and a man whom Allaah has given wealth and so he spends from it during the night and during the day.''  [Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim]
