No poverty after Paradise and no wealth in the Fire

It is reported that Jundub b. `Abdillaah Al-Bajalee – Allaah be pleased with him – was once asked for advice and instruction. He said: "I advise you to fear Allaah and obey Him (taqwaa) and I advise you to adhere to the Qur'aan, for it is a light in the dark night and a guidance during the day, so implement it no matter how much struggle and poverty you have to face. If a calamity befalls you, put your wealth forward to protect your religion, and if the calamity continues, put forward your wealth and your life to save your religion [but never risk your religion], for the ruined is he whose religion is ruined, and the looted is he whose religion is taken. And know that there is no poverty after Paradise, and no riches after the Fire. [Al-Dhahabee, Siyar A’laam Al-Nubalaa` 3:174.]

Not acting on the Qur'aan

Samura ibn Jundab narrated that the Prophet (sallaallaahu `alayhi was-sallam) said in his narration of a dream that he saw, "He whose head was being crushed with a stone was one who learnt the Qur'aan but never acted on it, and slept ignoring the compulsory prayers." [Al-Bukhaaree]


peace descends

Narrated Al-Bara' bin 'Azib: A man recited Surat-al-Kahf (in his prayer) and in the house there was a (riding) animal which got frightened and started jumping. The man finished his prayer with Taslim, but behold! A mist or a cloud hovered over him. He informed the Prophet (Sallallaahu `alayhi was-sallam) of that and the Prophet (Sallallaahu `alayhi was-sallam) said, "O so-and-so! Recite, for this (mist or cloud) was a sign of peace descending for the recitation of Qur'aan."  [Al-Bukhaaree]


recite and ascend

`Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`As (May Allaah be pleased with them) reported: The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said, "The one who was devoted to the the Qur'aan will be told on the Day of Resurrection: `Recite and ascend (in ranks) as you used to recite when you were in the world. Your rank will be at the last Aayah you recite.'''   [Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].

Reciting with difficulty

‘Aa’ishah, (may Allaah be pleased with her) relates that the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said: "Verily the one who recites the Qur’aan beautifully, smoothly, and precisely, he will be in the company of the noble and obedient angels. And as for the one who recites with difficulty, stammering or stumbling through its verses, then he will have twice that reward.” [Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim]

review review

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلّم said, "Keep on reciting the Qur'aan, for, by Him in Whose Hand my life is, Qur'aan runs away (is forgotten) faster than camels that are released from their tying ropes." [Al-Bukhaaree] (Book of the Virtues of the Qur'aan)


Surah Al Hajj 54

And that those who have been given knowledge may know that it (this Qur'aan) is the truth from your Lord, and that they may believe therein, and their hearts may submit to it with humility. And verily, Allaah is the Guide of those who believe, to the Straight Path. (Al-Hajj 22:54)

Surah Al-Baqarah 2:2

{This is the Book (the Qur'aan), whereof there is no doubt, a guidance to those who are Al-Muttaqoon [the pious and righteous persons who fear Allaah much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden) and love Allaah much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)].} [Al-Baqarah 2:2]

Surah Al-Hashr 59:21

{Had We sent down this Qur'aan on a mountain, you would surely have seen it humbling itself and rent asunder by the fear of Allaah. Such are the parables which We put forward to mankind that they may reflect.} [Al-Hashr 59:21]

Surah Al-Israa' 17:88,89

{Say: "If the mankind and the jinn were together to produce the like of this Qur'aan, they could not produce the like thereof, even if they helped one another." ~ And indeed We have fully explained to mankind, in this Qur'aan, every kind of similitude, but most of mankind refuse (the truth and accept nothing) but disbelief.}  [Al-Israa' 17:88,89]
