Receiving the rewards of reciting Quraan if one cannot recite with tajweed

Q: Without knowing the recitation of Quran with tajweed, many people recite surahs that are mentioned in the hadeeth with great rewards (fazeelat) for example, surah Mulk, surah Kahf, surah Waqiah etc.Will they get the rewards as mentioned in the hadeeth or will they get sin? Secondly, should they recite these surahs mentioned in the hadeeth on regular basis.


Insha-Allah they will be rewarded, and they should try to gradually correct their recitation.

Why not, just as they read surahs in their namaaz they should recite them.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
