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

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]

# Catch the First Row

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said,

If people came to know the blessing of calling Adhan and the standing in the first row, they could do nothing but would draw lots to secure these privileges.”

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
