Quran Reading or Quran Recitation is a very beneficial deed for a Muslim. Besides the rewards, it also serves as guidance for the person reading it and those around him. This Holy Book offers the unique attribute of maintaining its status as the book of guidance until the end of times. The month of Ramadan is especially beneficial for Muslims as the deeds are multiplied by a great number. In this article, after discussing the benefits we will discuss a way to complete the Holy Quran in this great month of benefits.
Quran Recitation benefits
Quran recitation is a great deed as we get guidance from Allah in great matters of life and it’s also an easy way of earning great rewards:
“Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah will receive a hasanah (good deed) from it (i.e. his recitation), and the hasanah is multiplied by ten. I do not say that Alif-Laam-Meem is (considered as) a letter, rather Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter, and Meem is a letter.” (Tirmidhi)
Therefore, we should recite the Quran as much as possible if we wish to have good deeds more than our bad deeds in our record on the judgment day.
Reciting Quran is especially beneficial for those who have difficulty in speaking (like stammering):
“Verily the one who recites the Qur’an 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.” (Bukhari)
Hence, this is a special benefit from Allah to those with difficulty in speaking.
Quran Recitation benefits in Ramadan
As mentioned before, Ramadan is the month of great blessings and every good deed is doubled in this month of blessings. It is also the month when the Holy Quran was revealed. it is written in ‘Sahih Muslim Hadith’ and ‘Sahih Bukhari’ books that the angel Jibreel used to come to Prophet (S.A.W.) every night in Ramadan and study the Quran with him. Hence, given such great information that Allah’s angel used to come to Muhammad (S.A.W.) to study Quran then we can understand how important the recitation of Quran is.
How to read the complete Quran in Ramadan
Complete recitation of Quran Surahs in this blessed month is a great deed. As the Holy Quran is available divided into thirty books then we can avail this opportunity by reciting one book per day. This way, we’ll be able to finish the Quran by the month’s end. For those with slow reading speed or who aren’t so proficient at it, they can start early (before Ramadan).
Ramadan is a great chance for Muslims to earn a great number of sawab helpful for them to enter jannah. The act of reading the complete Holy Quran in this month is especially beneficial thus we should avail this opportunity and that all the help we need from wherever we can find, even if it’s from smartphone apps.
