Double reward

Man is ‘Ashraf-ul-Makhluqat’ [the best amongst creation], but man cannot do anything without the Taufeeq and favour from Allah Almighty. We worship Him; it is also His grace. For this worship, He عَزَّوَجَلَّ bestows reward upon us which is also His favour. It is the miracle of His unlimited mercy that for some acts of worship He عَزَّوَجَلَّ bestows one reward, for some He عَزَّوَجَلَّ bestows upon us double and for some tenfold, seventyfold or more than this. The deeds for which double reward will be given are being mentioned below:

Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has said: If the one who is slow and recites with difficulty, continues to make his efforts to learn the Holy Quran until he dies, though he does not learn, he deserves to have double the reward. (Mirat-ul-Manajih, vol. 3, pp. 219)
