People Read the Qur'an for Their Own Advantage

In the End Times, some people will recite the Qur'an for profit rather than for gaining God's approval:

 

Let him who reads the Qur'an ask [his reward] from God, because in the End Times many people will read it and seek their reward from other people. (Tirmidhi)

 

 

When our scholars study in order to take your gold and silver, and when you take the Qur'an for trade, then Doomsday is at hand. (Muhammad ibn 'Abd ar-Rasul Barzanji, Al-Isha`ah li Ashrat as-Sa`ah, p. 141)

 

Another sign is that the Qur'an will be recited in ways far removed from its real purpose:

 

When the Qur'an is recited as if singing a song, and when a person is esteemed for reading in that way, even though he is not knowledgeable (Al-Tabarani)
