HADITH OF THE PROPHET SA Narrated AishaRA: The ProphetSA said, "Such a person as recites the Qur´an and masters it by heart, will be with the noble righteous scribes (in Heaven). And such a person who exerts himself to learn the Qur´an by heart, and recites it with great difficulty, will have a double reward." (Bukhari)
