Position of the Haafiz/a

The position of a Hafiz in the sight of Allah is indeed very high and lofty.
His heart is actually chosen by Allah to preserve the Qur'aan. His mind is
illuminated with the brightness of the Qur'aan, his heart is perfumed with
the fragrance of the Qur'aan.

For every alphabet of the Qur'aan he had recited, he earned a minimum of ten
rewards. The maximum reward is best known by Allah. The Qur'aan has 6666
verses. Every verse has many alphabets. Imagine the number of alphabets a
Haafiz recites. On an average os 3 alphabets per verse a Haafiz will recite
approximately, 20 000 (twenty thousand) alphabets in the entire Qur'aan.
That multiplied by ten rewards per alphabet is 200 000 (two hundred
thousand). In the course of memorising the Qur'aan, a Haafiz makes great
sacrifices. He recites one verse very many times. If he had recited one
verse at least 10 times, the reward of completing the Qur'aan only once will
be two million. Imagine how many times thereafter, a Haafiz recites the Qur'
aan, how many Taraawees he performs, the rewards of all that is far beyond
our very limited comprehension. Probably, mathematival figures will be
exhausted but not the infinite rewards of Allah Ta'ala for a Haafizul Qur'
aan. In conclusion, consider the following Ahaadith:
Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Amr (Radhiallaahu Anhu) narrates that Rasulullah
(Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) will say to a Haafiz (upon his death and on
the day of Qiyaamat) 'Recite the Qur'aan and (upon reciting each Verse)
climb (a stage in Jannah) and continue reciting as you used to in the world
as your abode in Jannah is upon the last verse you recite.' (Mishkaat vol.1
pg.186; Me'raaj)

Obviously, the Hafiz will stop at the last verse of the Qur'aan. The
commentators of Hadith have stated that the highest abode in Jannah is
equivalent to the number of verses in the Qur'aan. Therefore, upon
completing the recitation of the Qur'aan, a Haafiz will be in highest abode
of Jannah.

Mu'aadh al-Juhani narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
said, 'Whosoever recites the Qur'aan and practices upon its injunctions, the
reciter's parents will be given a crown on the day of Qiyaamat. The
brightness of that crown will be more intense than the brightness of the sun
in your actual house.' Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) further
said, 'What do you think will be given to the Hafiz (reciter) of the Qur'aan
himself?' (Ibid).
