Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی جَعْفَرُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مَسْرُوقٍ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی الْحَسَنُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَامِرٍ عَنْ عَمِّهِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَامِرٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ سُلَیْمَانَ عَنْ أَبِی جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: مَنْ قَرَأَ الْقُرْآنَ قَائِماً فِی صَلَاتِهِ کَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَهُ بِکُلِّ حَرْفٍ مِائَهَ حَسَنَهٍ وَ مَنْ قَرَأَهُ فِی صَلَاتِهِ جَالِساً کَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَهُ بِکُلِّ حَرْفٍ خَمْسِینَ حَسَنَهً وَ مَنْ قَرَأَهُ فِی غَیْرِ صَلَاتِهِ کَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَهُ بِکُلِّ حَرْفٍ عَشْرَ حَسَنَاتٍ.


1. Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) says, “One who recites the Holy Quran while standing in Salaat, Allah would grant him one hundred rewards for each alphabet and if a person recites the Holy Quran while sitting in Salaat, Allah would grant him fifty rewards for each alphabet. One who recites the Holy Quran apart from Salaat, Allah would grant him ten rewards for each letter.”
