Whom did Prophet ﷺ prayed for: "May Allah cause his face to shine"

Seeking knowledge is obligatory on every Muslim, the revered Prophet Muhammad ﷺ once remarked (Sunan Ibn Mājah 224). But that knowledge is of no use if one conceals it and does not share it with others so that they should also get benefitted from it. And when it comes to the Divine wisdom contained in the Qur'an and in Hadith of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, one should disseminate it to as many people around as possible for may be the some of the listeners are receptive and act upon the wisdom of knowledge so received and can better shape their lives. 

Therefore, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ prayed for those who share knowledge, specially of Qur;ana dn his sayings. What did the prophet pray, this is recorded in Sunan Ibn Majah (The Book of the Sunnah كتاب المقدمة / Chapter # 18 He who conveys knowledge بابباب مَنْ بَلَّغَ عِلْمًا ) as Hadith number # 232 as under:

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ بَشَّارٍ، وَمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْوَلِيدِ، قَالاَ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ، حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، عَنْ سِمَاكٍ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ قَالَ ‏ "‏ نَضَّرَ اللَّهُ امْرَأً سَمِعَ مِنَّا حَدِيثًا فَبَلَّغَهُ فَرُبَّ مُبَلَّغٍ أَحْفَظُ مِنْ سَامِعٍ ‏"‏ ‏.‏

'Abdur-Rahman bin 'Abdullah narrated from his father that: The Prophet said: "May Allah cause his face to shine, the man who hears a Hadith from us and conveys it, for perhaps the one to whom it is conveyed may remember it better than the one who (first) hears it."

That is blessed are those who keep spreading knowledge, specially of Prophetic sayings and that of Qur'an, For spreading knowledge is not only holy, it can shape the life of others according to our faith and may help others to e better than before. Sodo not conceal knowledge and let it be shared, even if no one islistening.
May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 
وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏ 
(36:17) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.”
That is Our duty is only to convey to you the message that Allah has entrusted us with. Then it is for you to accept it or reject it. We have not been made responsible for making you accept it forcibly, and if you do not accept it, we shall not be seized in consequence of your disbelief, you will yourselves be answerable for your actions on Day of Resurrection.

May Allah forgive me if my posts ever imply a piety far greater than I possess. I am most in need of guidance.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully. It will also help the Muslims to have grasp over social issues and their answers discussed in the Qur'an and other matter related to inter faith so that they are able to discuss issues with non-Muslims with authority based on refences from Qur'an.

Note: When we mention God in our posts, we mean One True God, we call Allah in Islam, with no associates. Allah is the Sole Creator of all things, and that Allah is all-powerful and all-knowing. Allah has no offspring, no race, no gender, no body, and is unaffected by the characteristics of human life.
