Reciting two aayaat from the Book of Allaah better for you than two she-camels

Uqbah Ibn Aamir (Radhi Allaahu Anhu) relates that Allah’s Messenger (Peace be upon him) came out when we were in as-Suffah and said:

“Are there any of you who would wish to go every day to Buthaan or al-’Aeeq [i.e., the name of two ditches in al-Madeenah] in the early morning and return from it with two she-camels without incurring any sin or severing relations?” We [the companions] said: “We would indeed love that, O Messenger of Allah” He (Peace be upon him) said: “Then you should go to the mosque and acquire some knowledge, or recite two aayaat from the Book of Allaah, that would be better for you than two she-camels, and three aayaat are better than three she-camels, and four aayaat are better than four she-camels, and the same for a like number of camels” [Muslim 1/553]
