Title: What is the ruling of giving the Huffaaz gifts in the month of Ramadhaan individually or collectively?

Question

RAMZANUL MUBARAK ME / NAMAZ-E-TRAWIH ME KHATM QURAN PAR MUQTADIYAN-E-MASAJID AEMA-E-IKRAM / HUFFAZ-E-IKRAM KO INFRADI WO IJTAMAEE TAOR PAR JO HADIYA / NAZRANA / TOHFA WAGHAIRA DETE HAI IS KI KYA SHARAEE HAISIYAT HAI INDALHANAFIAH MUFASSIL JAWAB MATLOOB HAI.

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salamu’alaykum wa-rahmatullahi wa –barakatuh.

The Quran is one of the greatest bounties of Allah Ta῾ālā given to us. When a person has the ability to recite the Quran then he should have the highest level of gratitude to Allah Taālā for bestowing him with such a favor. The purpose of reciting the Quran is to gain reward by means of which an individual could eventually gain the proximity of Allah Taālā. This should be the sole motivating factor for recitation of the Quran.

Taraweeh Salah is a great act of worship and should be performed solely for the pleasure of Allah. One should not take any remuneration for performing taraweeh. If the person performing taraweeh is made an Imam of the masjid for any Salah, he could be remunerated for that.[1]

And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
