Benefits of Quran recitation: Every religion has its own Holy books. Christians have Bible, Hindus have Geeta and in Islam Muslims have Holy Quran.
Allah Almighty sent Quran to guide Humanity. Quran accosts human.
Allah sent this Holy book so Allah surely wants us to read his book. He wants recitation of it with whole heart and understanding.
There is a quote of Hazrat Ali (R.A), “If you want to talk to Allah, offer prayer and if you want Allah talk to you then recite Quran.”
This quotation clearly sums it up. Recitation of Quran brings peace in mind and soul.
Hazrat Umer Farooq (R.A) turned Muslim by just listening to the Quran recitation.
Now what are the benefits of Quran recitation?
First of all the biggest benefit of Quran recitation and reflecting over the Quran fulfill an Islamic duty. Because when a person recites Quran daily it will be a proof for him at dooms day.
The Quran will be a proof for everyone on the judgment day. This is due to the statement of the Messenger: “And the Qur’an is a proof for you or against you.” [Muslim]
The best benefit is you will be from the best of the people. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “The best of you are the ones who learn the Quran and teach it to others.”
At another place Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “Whoever reads 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.”
Hazart Ayesha (R.A) narrated that Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) 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.”
And the reward! The rank of a Muslim in Paradise is determined by the amount of Quran he memorized.
For sure Quran will lead you to the paradise. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “The Quran is an intercessor, something 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”.
Allah Almighty says, “The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Quran, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong)”.
Quran also has healing powers. Allah Almighty says, “And we send down of the Quran that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism and act on it), and it increases the Zaalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers) nothing but loss”.
So never let satan get you away from the right and true path and always recite Quran with true heart.
