Benefits Of Quran Reading And Memorization

The Quran is said to be the Speech of Allah in the Arabic language and is the most comprehensive book of knowledge on earth. It is compulsory for every Muslim to equip himself of this knowledge and become a better person. The goal of a Muslim should not only be Quran Reading, but should try to memorize it, so that it remains in the heart of a person for enlightenment.

Imam Al-Haafidh an-Nawawi upon giving advice to his students said:”Quran Recitation is the first thing that the students of Quran should begin with”. There are many things that are required and helpful for those who want to memorize Quran. There are some ways that are of great importance for the memorization of Quran and Sheikh Yasir Qadhi pointed them out. The first important point is consistent timing that should be adopted and followed.

Secondly choose a suitable atmosphere and place where you can recite and memorize Quran. Familiarity should be followed which means that you should recite the Quran at the same place, at the same time every day and also the same copy of Quran should be used. Repetition of the Ayaat and Hadiths is very important and try to memorize Quran with meanings.

Develop a habit of listening to the good recitors of Holy Quran like Shaykh Husary. There is a great reward for those who learn, read and memorize Quran , and they can benefit from it in this world as well as Hereafter. It is said about Quran” He who appoints Quran as his leader and his guidance book will lead him to paradise while the one who ignores it will lead him to Fire”.
