(In the Name of Allah (SWT), Most Gracious, Most Merciful, all praise and thanks are due to Allah, Lord of the Realms and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger (SAWS) and upon all his family and companions)

In the moment of time there have been certain aspects to which we Muslims have ignored the true meaning of it and for such a reason we are expected to follow the recommended path that leads to forgiveness and mercy. A good example would be of reciting Quran, where one cannot understand the meanings and still believe to acquire benefits. Such as:

  1. Your status in this life will be raised
  2. The Qur’an will lead you to Paradise!
  3. You will be from the best of the people
  4. The Qur’an will intercede for us on the Day of Judgment
  5. The Qur’an will be a proof for us on the Day of Judgment
  6. Reading and reflecting over the Qur’an fulfils an Islamic duty
  7. There are ten rewards for each letter you recite from the Quran
  8. The person reciting Qur’an will be in the company of the noble and obedient angels
  9. Your position in Paradise is determined by the amount of Qur’an you memorize in this life!

The Prophet said: “The Qur’an 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.” [An authentic Hadith found in At-Tabaraanee, on the authority of ‘Abdullaah ibn Mas’ood]

There can be nothing beautiful and more special than the divine source of blessing such as Quran and for such a reason there can be no excuse to recite Quran with appropriate understanding and practice to acquire a lot more benefits.
