The merits and blessings for one who performs the mitzvah or writing a Torah Scroll.
- A) It protects his assets and property, so that the Evil Eye does not rule over them
Writing a Torah scroll brings merits upon a person so that his money is well protected and will not be under the control of the Evil Eye – especially if he merited money easily, as in an inheritance or dowry, or success from a good business deal. (Gemara Eiruvin)
- B) One merits wealth
In the book "Michtav Sofer" it says that "the mitzvah of writing a sefer Torah is great and the benefits that continue therefrom are great- the owners will be blessed with wealth and great prosperity – because whatever a person adds, gives towards the goals set by G-d, opens his hand to spend money for a great mitzvah involving a great expense such as the writing of a Torah scroll – he will receive correspondingly from the Source of blessings – a great abundance of His treasures – endless wealth, blessings and success – for "G-d is your shadow." As you do, so will He do, for that is how He acts with people."
- C) A merit for having children
In the book "Sha'ar Bat Rabim", Chapter Noach, the author writes that inherent in the writing of a Torah scroll is a merit for childless couples to have children, and likewise for those who have trouble raising their children and for those whose children do not live long – they should all have a Torah scroll written, and they will be helped. And in the book "Chakrei Lev" he writes that he has learned from previous generations who in turn learned from others beforehand – that several childless couples who had a Torah scroll written as it should be merited thereafter to have sons and daughters – as it is alluded therein: "This is the book of a person's descendants." And if a person cannot to that, he should buy books and lend them out to others to learn from them."
And in the book "Imrei Shefer" he writes, "And with my own eyes I saw a woman who had children after sixteen years after she had a Torah scroll written; soon after she gave birth to a son.
- D) A merit for a long life
In the book Kav Hayashar it says that writing a Torah scroll is a merit for a long life, as it says in the Torah scroll for a king "so that he has longevity in his kingdom…" .
And it is said that the Chidushei Harim Rabbi explained that this is what the Mishna means in Pirkei Avot where it says "He who abounds in Torah abounds in life." In other words, one who abounds in Torah by writing a Torah scroll will thereby abound in life – a merit for a long life.
- E) A merit to cancel evil decrees
The holy books have written that there is an allusion from the verse "And when she came before the king she said, if the book…" – i.e. if one writes a Torah scroll – then "his bad idea will be cancelled" – i.e. evil decrees will be nullified.
