Paying for Reciting Qur'an in Taraweeh
|Q.) Can a Hafiz take money or any other gift in giving the khatm-ul Quran during Taraweeh (Ramazan)? If not, then would the people get the sawab of hearing the Quran?|
A.) It is not permissible to give the Hafiz any gift upon reciting the Qur'an. The Hafiz performing Taraweeh with the expectation of getting a remuneration in the name of a gift is void of Ikhlaas (sincerity). Any act void of Ikhlaas is void of reward. And Allah Taala Knows Best.
