Today we will shed light on a book that is a mercy for all humanity. And there are countless benefits to reading it. The Quran is the last and most authoritative book of Allah Almighty which has revealed to Muhammad (SAW). Who is the Messenger of Allah for the guidance of mankind in matters of religion. The reward of reciting the Quran is clear in the light of the hadiths. It is narrated from Usman ibn Affan that the Prophet (SAW) said: “The best of you is the one who learns the Quran and teaches it”. [Bukhari]
Hadith’s About Reciting Quran:
The Holy Prophet says that whoever reads one letter of the Holy Quran gets ten virtues. Remember that “الم” is not one letter but “ا” , “ل” and “م” are three letters. Therefore, just by reading these three letters, you will get 30 virtues. Remember that “الم” is one of the mysterious letters, the meaning of which we do not know. But there is a reward for reading it. It was learned that recitation of the Qur’an is not a reward for understanding it but a reward even without understanding it. The Prophet (SAW) said: “Read the Quran because the Quran will be an intercessor for its readers on the Day of Resurrection”. [Muslim]
