Can we read Qur'an in English? Do we get "reward" too?

The Details of the Question

Can we read the Quran in English ? Do we get reward in Ramadan? because I'm not too fast in reading Arabic and I want to finish Qur'an in Ramadan.

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Though it does not carry as much reward as reading the whole Qur'an from the Arabic original, reading the whole Qur'an from its English translation brings reward and merit.

It is the best to try to read both from the Arabic and the English scripts.

Even if one reads slowly in Arabic, one is not bound to finish the Qur'an in Ramadan at all costs. The more one reads, the better. For, while at other times for each letter of the Qur'an one is given ten rewards, in Ramadan one may obtain for each letter up to 30 thousand rewards.
