The Quran is Almighty Allah’s fourth and last righteous Holy Book. The Quran is the Book of Wisdom, Guidance and knowledge for the whole humanity. It was revealed to our beloved Prophet (PBUH), Allah Almighty’s last Messenger. The Quran is the Heavenly book to which Muslims approach when they have a difficulty, because it contains solutions to all problems and provides direction in all aspects of life.
Allah Almighty stated of the Quran,
“This is the Book (the Quran), of which there is no doubt, instruction to those who are Al-Muttaqoon [the devout],” (2:2-Quran)
Indeed, the Book of Allah is unlike any other book; it is Allah’s everlasting Words, not a created item, and the study guide for life, death, and what follows. As a result, it demands greater attention than any other speech. As Muslims, we should recite the Quran on a regular basis with greater comprehension in order to earn Allah’s blessings in this world and the next.
The benefits of reciting and memorising the Quran are enormous. Each of the examples presented here is meant to inspire people to read the Holy Quran and strive to comprehend it. The faith was summarised by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as naseehah (sincerity).
“To whom?” Hazrat Tameem ibn Aws questioned. “To Allah, His book, His prophet, the rulers of the people, and the ordinary people,” he(PBUH) said.
Rewards of Completing Quran:
The rewards of completing the Holy Quran is same as benefits of reciting Quran.
Acceptance of Prayers:
According to many narrations, when the Quran is completed, mercy falls, people’s prayers are accepted, and hundreds of angels are there to say ‘Ameen’ to the supplications made at that moment. We know from the early community that when they did a complete reading of the Quran, they would congregate with their children and families.
They would do so since it was widely believed that this was a period when prayers were received. However, it also emphasises the significance of maintaining a link to the Quran. Ramadan is a month when we must rekindle our relationship with Allah’s word.
One of the signs that this is a good idea, according to these experts, is that whenever we finish reading the Quran in its entirety, we immediately proceed to the first chapter (Al-Fatihah) and read the first part of chapter Al-Baqarah to see what is to be positive about continuing to study the Quran.
Establishment of Strong Connection with Allah:
However the aim of reading the Quran throughout 1st Ashra of Ramadan is to rebuild that link, to give us that revived relationship with the Quran so that we may continue this beyond Ramadan. And we hope that everyone of us would arrange some meal for the poor’s, when we complete the Quran. So that we can get Allah’s mercy and blessings. You can do some other good deed too to celebrate your completion of Quran.
Let’s set a goal to finish the Quran every two months, or even every month, for those who can read quickly. Those that recite quickly may be able to complete the Qur’an numerous times in a month. This will then rekindle our relationship with Allah’s word.
Escape from hellfire:
All those who recite the Quran on a regular basis will enter Paradise. Our beloved Prophet (SAW) said,
“The Quran is an intercessor, something granted permission to intervene, and it is appropriately believed in”. It will bring him to Paradise if he places it in front of him; if he puts it behind him, it will lead him to Hellfire.”
Benefits of Reciting Quran By Quran and Hadees:
Let us look at some of the benefits of reciting the Quran daily with clarity in order to come closer to Almighty Allah’s glorious teachings. Each advantage is sufficient to persuade Muslims to recite the Quran on a regular basis with comprehension. While a Muslim learns the true reason for the Quran’s revelation, he or she should not open the Quran and recite it when they are in a tough position. The reason for which Allah Almighty has sent Quran for us is also mentioned in Quran itself. It says
“A Book (the Quran) which We have brought down to you, full of benefits so they may think over its Verses, and that men of wisdom may receive guidance,” (38:29-Quran)
The objective of the Quran, as stated in the previous verse, is to convey blessings to a person and to instil in the readers a spirit of surveillance. As a result, if one does not read the Quran on a regular basis, he or she is missing out on an opportunity to be inspired to investigate all that Allah has created as well as all aspects of life. As a result, in order to get religious merit, a Muslim must recite the Quran on a daily basis.
- On the Day of Decision, the Quran will take action for us. The Prophet (SAW) said,
“Read the Quran, for verily it will come on the Day of Standing as an intercessor for its partners.” (Muslim)
- When a Muslim recites the Quran, it has an effect on the heart and cleanses it by removing all the impurities that have accumulated there. Allah Almighty declares in the Quran,
“O mankind!” There has come to you from your Lord an admonition and a mending for the (diseases) in your souls, as well as a Guidance and Mercy for those who believe.” (10:57-Quran)
- If you wish to be the best in Allah’s sight, teach Quran to others and understand it yourself. Our beloved Prophet (SAW) remarked in a hadith.
“The greatest among you are the ones who learn the Quran and teach it to others.” (Bukhari)
- Quran recitation can be made appealing, which can lead to a discussion with Allah Almighty. HE says in the Quran,
“And when He (Prophet) uttered the passages that alluded to Allah’s Glory, He praised Him, the Great, and when He repeated the verses that reference supplication, He supplicated, and when He recited the verses that mention the Refuge of the Rabb, He sought (His) refuge.” (Muslim).
May Allah Almighty helps us in getting the guidance for every matter of life from the Holy Quran. Ameen!
One of the most essential things we can do as Muslims is to complete the Quran. To complete the Quran, we must not only read it in our free time, but also set aside time to do it. Regardless of how busy we are right now. Finally, we know that the readers of Quran will receive intercession from it and will be commanded to recite and rise on the Day of Judgement. It begs the question, what about the one who is learning the many modes.
