The Urgency of Learning Qur’an

One beautiful passage from Rasulullah (SAW) about learning Qur’an and its rewards:

“Learn the Qur’an. On the Day of Judgment, it will come to its friends in the form of a handsome young man of pale complexion and will speak to his friend, saying, “I am the Qur’an for which you kept awake so often and endured thirst during the heat of midday, dried up your mouth and let your tears flow. I will be with you whenever you will go. Every trader is after his trade. Today I look after the trade of everyone who had a deal with me. Honour will come to you from Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, as good news for you.“

The person will receive a crown, and peace will be placed on his right hand and eternal life in paradise in his left hand. He will be dressed with two dresses of paradise, then he will be told, ‘Read and climb.’ For each verse that he will read he will climb up one degree. His parents, if they are of the believers, will each receive two dresses of paradise and they will be told that this is for your teaching the Holy Qur’an to your child.”
