Hadith Explanation

Rise As You Recite

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “He who recites the Quran will be told on the Day of Judgement, ‘Recite the Quran now in the same clear and distinct manner and in the same harmonious style in which you used to recite it with care and propriety in the world and as a reward for the recitation of each Ayat you shall be elevated one degree higher and your ultimate place is near the end of the final Ayat.” [Tirmidhi]

This hadith informs us of the wonderful incentive that Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has provided us with to memorize and recite the Quran. The more that a person has memorized and is used to reciting, the higher and better will be their place in Jannah.

It makes sense that it should be so, for the more that a person recites of the Quran the more will they be reminded of their relationship with Allah, the shortness of their sojourn on earth, and their life in the Hereafter, and the more they will work for it.

As far as possible, recite the Quran in a clear and distinct manner. Pronounce the letters correctly and recite with proper style and slowly. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) used to recite each word in a clear and distinct manner and read each Ayat separately.   

May we become one of those who avail themselves of this tremendous incentive. As we aim for better, fancier neighbourhoods in the world, may we not forget the posher neighbourhoods of the everlasting Hereafter.
