Struggling to Recite
Allah loves to see you trying. When you struggle for Allah’s sake, the reward is greater. What do the angels do when you struggle to read Quran?

There's that famous Hadith where the Prophet slicin um, talks about this man who loses his camel and finds his camel after thinking that he's going to die in the desert. And he's so happy when he finds that camel with all of his belongings on it, that he calls out to Allah. And in his happiness, he stumbles, and he says, unto Abdul anara book, you are my servant, and I am your Lord, mixing it up out of my shed that he thought Ah, he because of how joyful he is, in those moments and the prophets lie some saying, Allah is more pleased with the repentance of one of you than that man would be when he found his camp.
Now, what's particularly beautiful about that is that Allah subhanho wa Taala, loves to see you in your brokenness when you're turning to him. So philosophy No, it's out of love to see that brokenness in your da in your supplication, then how about when you're reciting the Quran, and for someone who converts to Islam or someone who's not used to the recitation of the pulpit, and they're hearing people recite the Quran beautifully, with Tajweed, and no issues whatsoever, and they're seeing the reciters and people that have no issues grappling with the understanding and their thinking, that could never be me. But they're going to make the effort to learn, you know, a little
bit of Arabic to work on their Tajweed to recite the Quran daily, they're going to come to the Holocaust. And when people go around and they recite, they're okay with being the ones that are going to stumble a bit, and that you know, are going to take a little bit more time, they will let that humility take over instead of the arrogance, and they'll go with the process, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he said, a little bit of an masala till caramel barnala that the one who has no issues reciting the poor and the one who's proficient with the recitation of the Quran is with the noble and righteous scribes from the angels, you know, those, those angels that Allah mentions kill
them and but Allah, what better Do you want them that the noble scribes for being a noble recite of someone who recites it fluently, fluidly no issues whatsoever, and then the profit slice of them said, the one who recites the Quran and stumbles over it well, who are they he shocked and struggles with it has hardship and learning the recitation will have two times the reward of that person who was with saddam and Baba, their station and their reward will be doubled the one who recites fluently and with ease, that's incredible Howdy, because what it shows you is that the struggle itself is worshipped. And arrogance is a great barrier and hindrance to worship and bettering
yourself in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it is humbling, especially for someone who, you know, knows how to read in another language and has had no issues learning and building themselves up in other ways. And here they are learning once again how to read and there are people around and they have to humble themselves either to a teacher or to the people in the circle, but they're not going to let that get in the way of having that pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and having that station with Allah subhana wa Tada. So they're willing to put aside their ego, so that they can draw close to their Lord. And you can imagine, if Allah subhana wa tada who loves to see
that humble servant, who would be broken and mess up what they're doing, how blessed it is, and what type of station Allah would give to that person amongst the angels, who is broken and reciting his words, so that he can get closer to him and become as fluid and proficiency and fluency as the other one who is like a noble scribe.
