Benefits Of Reciting The Quran

Muslims will earn great rewards for reciting the Quran and implementing it in their daily life routine. We will discuss some rewards from Quran and Hadiths in this article. In Hadith Prophet (ﷺ) stated:

“Whoever recites ten Ayahs (verses) in qiyaam will not be recorded as one of the forgetful. Whoever recites a hundred Ayahs (verses) in qiyaam will be recorded as one of the devout, and whoever prays a thousand Ayahs (verses) in qiyaam will be recorded as one of the muqantareen (those who pile up good deeds).” (Abu Dawood)

The rewards of reciting the Quran are many. In another Hadith, our beloved Prophet (ﷺ) said:

“Verily the one who recites the Quran 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.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

So from this hadith, we can say that a person will get the double reward that is trying hard and doing extra effort to learn and recite Quran for pleasing Allah Almighty. We should try to get hard for reciting Quran in this way Allah will be pleased with us and we will get great rewards in this life and the hereafter.

The Quran will intercede for us on the Day of Judgment: Prophet (ﷺ) said that: “Read the Quran, for verily it will come on the Day of Standing as an intercessor for its companions.” (Muslim)

Cleansing of Heart: When a Muslim recites the Quran, it affects the heart and purifies it by cleaning it from all the impurities that stick on it. Allah Almighty says in Quran: “O mankind! There hath come to you an admonition from your Lord and a healing for the (diseases) in your hearts and for those who believe a Guidance and Mercy.” (Quran, 10:57)

Ten Rewards for each letter recitation from Quran: Hadith related to this is stated in a way that: “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.” (Tirmidhi)

Quran will lead to Paradise: Quran recitation will lead all of them who recited it regularly to paradise. Our beloved Prophet (ﷺ) stated that: “The Quran is an intercessor, something has given permission to intercede, and it is rightfully believed in. Whoever puts it in front of him, it will lead him to Paradise; whoever puts it behind him, it will steer him to the Hellfire.”

Fulfillment of Religious Duty: The Most Merciful has commanded all the Muslims to reflect on the Quranic Instructions not only to appreciate their significance for it is a Divine Book that leads towards righteousness and morality. It is our religious duty to recite the Quran with understanding.

Source Of Forgiveness

Quran is a source of forgiveness on the day of judgment. There are special from Allah to the Muslims who learn the Quran by heart. The person who reads the Quran regularly will get special rewards from Allah on the Day of Judgement. what can be great for a Muslim to get into heaven afterlife?

Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Read the Qur’an, for verily it will come on the Day of Standing as an intercessor for its companions.” [Muslim]

So increase the recitation of the Quran to get these rewards.

Have you ever heard of this famous verse? “The month of Ramadan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion” (Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:185)

As stated, the Quran was revealed in the month of Ramadan. But how was it revealed to our Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) for the first time and what are the first few verses that were revealed to him? Well, it all started when Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) was sitting in the cave of Hira’ on a mountain called The Mountain of Light also known as ‘Jabal Nur’.

As Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) felt restless and helpless with the decadence of the Meccan Quraish, the Prophet (ﷺ) found peace and solace during his seclusion in the cave of Hira’. Little did he know that one of the days of his stay in the cave, Angel Jibril a.s. would visit him.

But what happened when Jibril came to meet the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)? In a hadith reported by Sayyidatina Aisyah r.a. and narrated by Imam Al-Bukhari,

“..The angel came to him and asked him to read. The Prophet (ﷺ) replied, "I do not know how to read.’’ The Prophet (ﷺ) added, "The angel caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I could not bear it anymore. He then released me and again asked me to read and I replied, 'I do not know how to read.”Thereupon he caught me again and pressed me a second time till I could not bear it anymore. He then released me and again asked me to read but again I replied, “I do not know how to read !?” Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me, and then released me and said,", "Read in the name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists), created man from a clot. Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous.” (Surah Al-'Alaq, 96:1-5)

Allah s.w.t. commanded us to read, ponder, to analyze, and to understand the verse of the Quran. The Quran is indeed a gift for all humankind. Each verse in the Quran is so unique that it can never be rephrased even by a linguist expert. Given that the Quran is very significant for Muslims, let’s appreciate the Quran by taking a first step of reading this final scripture revealed to humanity, even if we have yet to understand the Arabic language.

Here are 5 reasons why we should recite the Quran:

1. You will get rewarded for every letter that you read from the Quran.

2. You stutter and can't get it right. No problem. You will be rewarded for that too!

3. Quran is a Source of Guidance

4. Quran Calms the Soul.

5. The Quran is made easy for us.

Let's read them one by one,

1. You will get rewarded for every letter that you read from the Quran.

Sayyidatina Aishah r.a reported:

" Whoever recites a letter from Allah's Book, then he receives the reward from it, and the reward of ten the like of it. I do not say that Alif Lam Mim is a letter, but Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter and Mim is a letter " (Sunan At-Tirmizi)

2. You stutter and can't get it right? No problem. You will be rewarded for that too!

For some of us, the Arabic language is a foreign language. When you are a beginner, you tend to stutter and may find it difficult to read it fluently. Not understanding what you are reading is already frustrating enough, what more to practice to read in different languages and letters. But fear not, Allah s.w.t. is All-Knowing, Most Merciful. He will reward you twice for the hard work of trying to read the verses of the Quran!

Sayidatina Aishah (r.a.) reported:

"The one who is proficient in the recitation of the Qur'an will be with the honorable and obedient scribes (angels), and he who recites the Qur'an and finds it difficult to recite, doing his best to recite it in the best way possible, will have two rewards." (Sahih Al-Bukhari & Muslim)

3. Quran is a Source of Guidance

Allah s.w.t. mentioned in the Quran in a couple of Surahs:

“A Book We have sent down to you so that you may bring forth mankind from the darkness into the light ..” (Surah Ibrahim, 14:1)

This book is a guide for all of us till the last day ( the day of judgment). In Quran, we can find all the solutions to our problems if we read it carefully.

4. Quran Calms the Soul.

Reciting the Quran is part of remembrance (zikr). It is also a form of Ibadah. When you do zikr, you will attain inner peace and solace as mentioned in the Quran:

“Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah. Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah, hearts are assured” (Surah Ar-Ra’ad, 13:28)

5. The Quran is made easy for us.

To this, Allah s.w.t. says in the Quran:

"And We have certainly made the Quran easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? " (Surah Al-Qamar, 54:17)

Allah s.w.t, the Most Merciful mentioned in the Quran four times specifically in Surah Al-Qamar, that He had made it easy for us to recite and comprehend, to remind mankind that regardless of who we are, we are constantly in need of reminders from Him. Allah s.w.t. mentioned in Surah As-Sad:

" [This is] a blessed Book which We have revealed to you, [Oh Muhammad], that they might reflect upon its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded." (Surah Sad 38:29)
