Benefits of learning Tajweed
The benefits of learning Tajweed are many as reflected in some of the following hadeeth:
- The reciters of the Quran will be in the company of the noble and obedient angels
‘Aa’ishah, may Allah be pleased with her, relates that the Prophet said: “Verily the one who recites the Quran 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.”
- You will be from the best of people
‘Uthmaan, may Allah be pleased with him, said that the Prophet said: “The best of you are the ones who learn the Quran and teach it to others”
- There are ten rewards for each letter you recite from the Quran “Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah, he will have a reward.
And the reward will be multiplied by ten.
I am not saying that “Alif, Laam, Meem” is a letter, rather I am saying that “Alif” is a letter, “laam” is a letter and “meem” is a letter.”
- The Quran will lead you to Paradise!
The Quran is an intercessor, something given permission to intercede, and it is rightfully believed in. Whoever puts it in front of him, it will lead him to Paradise; whoever puts it behind him, it will steer him to the Hellfire.”
