Is the reward for listening to recorded Qur'an the same as for reciting Qur'an?
The reward referred to is mentioned in the Hadith on the authority of
`Abdullah ibn Mas`ud (may (Part No. 3; Page No. 88) Allah be pleased with him) in which the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:
Anyone who recites a letter from the Book of Allah will receive a Hasanah (rewardable good deed), and the Hasanah is multiplied by ten. I do not say that 'Alif Lam Mim' is a letter, but 'Alif' is a letter, 'Lam' is a letter, and 'Mim' is a letter.
Al-Tirmidhy) This reward pertains to a reader or reciter of the Qur'an.The reward for
listening to the Qur'an is something that only Allah knows. But great reward is hoped for anyone who listens to the Qur'an and acts according to it.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
