Answered by Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah protect him and benefit us by him)
I find it difficult to recite the Qur’an so during Ramadan I read a translation of the Qur’an. Will I be rewarded for this?
You will receive the reward of seeking knowledge and the reward for this is great. You should continue this but also recite even a small portion of the Qur’an. In addition to this you can repeat Surat al-Ikhlas, Surat al-Falaq and Surat al-Nas. You should also say ‘la ilaha ill’Allah’ in abundance and intend by doing so reciting the Qur’an.
