Virtues of Quran Reading
This is the Book (the Quran), whereof there is no doubt, a guidance to those who are Al-Muttaqoon [the pious]
[Quran Al-Baqarah 2:2]
Quran was revealed for human beings to make their life smooth and . Allah Almighty has promised great rewards and vritues for reading and following Quran
“Had We sent down this Quran on a mountain, you would surely have seen it humbling itself and rending asunder by the fear of Allah. Such are the parables which We put forward to mankind that they may reflect.”
[Quran Al-Hashr 59:21]
In Quran and hadith countless rewards are promised for those who learn Quran and practice the teachings of Quran. Each word of Quran adds 10 virtues in your account. In different Hadiths the virtues of glorious Quran are discussed:
An authentic hadith in At-Tirmithee states:
“Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah, he will have a reward. And that reward will be multiplied by ten. I am not saying that “Alif, Laam, Meem” is a letter, rather I am saying that “Alif” is a letter, “laam” is a letter and “meem” is a letter.” So increase your recitation of the Qur’an to gain these merits, and to gain the following merit as well.”
When beginners start to learn Quran they are not fluent and smooth with Quran reading, because they are not well versed in Arabic language. But there is double reward for their effort to learn Quran. A hadith related by Ayesha Siddiqah states:
Verily the one who recites the Qur’an beautifully, smoothly, and precisely, he will be in the company of the noble and obedient angels. And as for the one who recites with difficulty, stammering or stumbling through its verses, then he will have TWICE that reward.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
One of the countless benefits of Quran reading is that Quran will be given permission to intercede on day of judgment and it will be intercessor for its readers. Allah raises the status of Muslim by Quran in this world and hereafter. The more recitating, learning and practicing
Quran leads to higher status of Muslim. Those who learn Quran are also blessed with peace and happiness in their life and their prosperity and welfare is promoted by blessings of Allah. Many of their worries and regrets are often dispelled through blessing of Quran.
“Those who believe [in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism], and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah, verily, in the remembrance of f Allah do hearts find rest”.
(Qur ‘an 13: 28)
