قالَ الإِمامُ جَعْفَرُ ابْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ الصّادِقُ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ): مَنْ قَرَأَ الْقُرآنَ كَثِيراً وَ تَعاهَدَهُ بِمَشَقَّةٍ مِنْ شِدَّةِ حِفْظِهِ أَعْطاهُ اللّهُ أَجْرَ هذَا مَرَّتَينِ.

mam Ja’far ibne Muhammad as-Sadiq (peace be upon him) has said: “Allah will reward the person who recites the Qur’an a great deal and makes a promise with it to try and memorize it even though it may entail great difficulty, a double reward.”
