VIRTUES OF THE HOLY QUR'AAN
HADITH - 2
Hadhrat Abu Sa'eed (Radhiyallaho anho) narrates that Rasulullah
(Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) said: "Almighty Allah says; "If
anybody finds no time for My remembrance and for begging favours
of Me, because of his remaining busy with the Holy Qur'an, I shall
give him more than what I give to all those who beg favours of Me.
The superiority of the Word of Allah over all other words is like
the superiority of Allah over the entire creation."
In other words, compared to those who are begging favours of Allah,
He will surely confer some better reward on a person who remains
so occupied with committing the Qur'an to memory or learning and
understanding it that he hardly gets time for du'a (prayer).
It is commonly known that when a man distributes sweets, or something
else amongst others, a share is set aside for the person who cannot
attend the function because of the task of distribution given to
him by the distributor himself.
In another hadith, in the same context, it is mentioned that Allah
would give such a person a better reward than what He would give
to His ever grateful servants.
