Learn the Qur'aan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
الحمد لله رب العالمين وصلى الله وسلم على نبينا محمد وآله وصحبه أجميعن
أما بعد

On the authority of Abu Sa'eed Al-Khudri (May Allaah be pleased with him), he heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) say: 

"Learn the Qur'aan. Ask Allaah for paradise by way of it before there comes a time where people ask for the wordly affairs by way of it. Indeed there are three types of people who learn the Qur'aan: A man who seeks to boast by way of it, a man who seeks to eat by way of it, and a man who reads it for the sake of Allaah."

(Narrated by Ibn Nasr in his book Qiyaamul-Layl, Also by Imaam al-Albaani in as-Saheehah #285)
