Virtues of Reciting the Quran

 Virtues of Reciting the Quran

The Holy Qur'aan should be recited daily. Hereunder is mentioned some
Ahadeeth with regards the excellence of reciting the Holy Qur'aan:

Recite the Holy Qur'aan for It will come as an intercessor for its
reciter' on the Day of Judgement.

Allah Ta'ala says: "If anyone finds no time for My remembrance and for
begging My favours due to remaining engaged in the recitation of the
Qur'aan, I shall give him more than what I give to all those who beg
favours of Me." The superiority of the Word of Allah over all other
words is like the superiority of Allah over the entire creation.

Learn the Qur'aan and recite it, because the example of one who learns
the Qur'aan, reads it and recites it in Tahajjud is like an open bag
full of musk whose fragrance permeates the entire place. And the person
who has learnt the Qur'aan but sleeps while the Qur'aan is in the heart
is like a bag full of musk but with its mouth closed.

Whoever recites one letter of the Book of Allah, for him and one
blessing is equal to tenfold the like thereof in its reward. I do not
say that Alif Laam Meem is one letter, but' Alif is one letter, Laam is
one letter and Meem is one letter.

Envy is not permitted except in respect of two persons - one whom Allah
blesses with the recitation of the Qur'aan and he remains engaged in it
day and night, and the other is one who given abundance of wealth by
Allah and he spends it (in Allah's path) day and night.

It will be said to the reciter of the Qur'aan (on the Day of Qiyaamah):
"Go on reciting the Qur'aan and continue ascending the stages of Jannah;
and recite it in the slow manner as you had been reciting it in the
worldly life: your final abode will be where you reach at the time of
the last aayah of your recitation.

One who recites the Qur'aan and he is well versed in it ( i.e. its
recitation), he will be in the company of those angels who are scribes,
noble and righteous; and one who falters in its recitation and has to
exert himself, gets a double reward.

 

From "Al Hisnul Haseen"
By Allama Muhammad ibn Muhammad Al Jazari Ash Shafee'e
