What is the reward for reading Quran in English? Is it the same as reading in Arabic?
Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh
Thank you for your question.
May Allah Almighty bless you tremendously for your interest in religious matters.
One will certainly receive rewards for reciting or reading the Quran in any language other than Arabic Insha Allah.
However, it must also be noted that there are multiplied rewards for reciting the Quran in Arabic. This is why we encourage you to learn Arabic with the goal to recite in the language the Quran was revealed in.
May Allah ease your task.
And Allah knows best.
