We said: Messenger of Allah, we would like to do it. Upon this he said: Does not one of you go out in the morning to the mosque and teach or recite two verses from the Book of Allah. the Majestic and Glorious? That is better for him than two she-camels, and three verses are better (than three she-camels). and four verses are better for him than four (she-camels), and to on their number in camels.” (Saheeh Muslim 1/522-523 no.251)

2 thoughts on “The Virtues of The Quraan”
Do we have to recite 100 (or 1000) verses throughout the night prayer or recite 100 verses in one Raka’ah?
the hadeeth mentions in the night, so throughout the night prayer and not necessarily one rakah. This seems to be the apparent meaning of the hadeeth and Allaah knows best.
