Benefits of learning Quran:
“ذَلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لاَ رَيْبَ فِيهِ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ”
- There are many rewards for the one who recites the Quran.
“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)
This Hadith shows the great reward of reciting and learning the Qur’an, that even the one who finds it difficult to recite is rewarded for his efforts.
- The Qur’an will intercede for us on the Day of Judgement
“Read the Quran, for verily it will come on the Day of Standing as an intercessor for its companions.” (Muslim)
When we recite Quran more and more, it will become a natural hobby carried out with ease. Becoming passionate with reading this Book, and striving to attain the good that it releases, will bring us satisfaction and stability in both worlds. Quran is your gate to paradise.
- You will be from the best of people
‘Uthmaan, may Allah be pleased with him, said that the Prophet (SAW) said: “The best of you are the ones who learn the Qur’an and teach it to others” [Al-Bukhari]
4.It shows us what is lawful and what is not and what we should do and what we should not.
Through these many examples, a Muslim can use the Qur’an to help shape and live their life. The Qur’an teaches us to be optimistic through the trials great people before us had faced. It teaches us to have patience, forbearance, and most of all, it gives us firm realisation that Allah is the Almighty, the Greatest, and deserves all praise. Consisting of the direct and divine words of Allah, the Qur’an being a guide is a great virtue for Muslims from all walks of life.
5.There are ten rewards for each letter you recite from the Quran
“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 states this is saheeh]
For all this, Quran learning is very important. In the next article, we will talk about about the definition of the Quran.
