163. Reward of reciting the Holy Quran by looking at it

Back to book

حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارُ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ یَعْقُوبَ بْنِ یَزِیدَ عَنْ رَجُلٍ مِنَ الْعَوَامِّ رَفَعَهُ إِلَی أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: مَنْ قَرَأَ فِی الْمُصْحَفِ نَظَراً مُتِّعَ بِبَصَرِهِ وَ خُفِّفَ عَنْ وَالِدَیْهِ وَ إِنْ کَانَا کَافِرَیْنِ.


1. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) says, “One who recites the Holy Quran by looking at it, his eyes will become stronger and the chastisement of his parents would be reduced even if they had been disbelievers.”




وَ بِهَذَا الْإِسْنَادِ رَفَعَهُ إِلَی النَّبِیِّ ص قَالَ: لَیْسَ شَیْ ءٌ أَشَدَّ عَلَی الشَّیْطَانِ مِنْ قِرَاءَهِ الْمُصْحَفِ نَظَراً.


2. And from the previous chain who raised it to The Prophet (s.a.w.s.) who said: “There is nothing more severe for Satan except a person reciting the Holy Quran by looking at it.”
