I was about to jump over him during his Salah but waited until he finished. When he had said the Salam, I strangled him with his cloak and asked: 'Who taught you this Surah which I heard you reciting?' He said: ‘Allah’s Apostle ﷺ taught it to me.' I said to him: 'You lie! By Allah! The Apostle of Allah ﷺ taught me this Surah which you were reciting.' I dragged him to the Apostle of Allah ﷺ and said: 'O Apostle of Allah! I heard this one reciting Surat Al-Furqan in a manner different from how you taught me, and you taught me Surat Al-Furqan.' The Prophet ﷺ said: 'Release him O 'Umar! Recite O Hisham.' So, he recited it for him as I had heard him reciting. Then the Prophet ﷺ said to me: 'It was revealed in this manner.' Then the Prophet ﷺ said to me, 'Recite O 'Umar.' So, I recited the recitation which the Prophet ﷺ taught me. The Prophet ﷺ said: 'It was revealed in this manner.' Then the Prophet ﷺ said 'Indeed this Qur'an was revealed in seven modes, so recite that which is easier for you.'"

Narrated from Abu Hurairah (RA) that Allah’s Apostle ﷺ said: "Whoever removes a burden among the burdens of the world from his brother, Allah will remove a burden among the burdens of the Day of Judgement from him. And whoever conceals (the faults) of a Muslim, Allah will conceal him in the world and in the Hereafter. And whoever makes things easy for one in straitened circumstances then Allah will make it easy for him in this world and the next. Allah is helpful to (His) Slave as long as the is helpful to his brother. And whoever adopts a path seeking knowledge, Allah makes easy for him a path to Paradise. And no people sit in a Masjid reciting Allah's Book, teaching it to each other, except that tranquillity descends upon them and mercy covers them up and the angels surround them. And whoever is slow in (doing) his deeds, his lineage shall not advance him."
