Blessings of Reciting the Holy Quran

The Holy Quran is a book of guidance and a sea of knowledge for those who take inspiration from it. While the Quran is meant to be a guide for all of humanity, regardless of creed, identity, cultural background, age, or gender, we have more potential to learn from its guidance and knowledge if we purify our hearts. God states, There is no doubt that this book is a guide for the pious. Allah says:

وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا وَاذْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنتُمْ أَعْدَاءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُم بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْوَانًا

“Hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided. Remember the favour of Allah upon you, when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became brothers by his favour.”(Surah Al Imran 3:103)

Everyone no matter rich or poor can find the things that are about them in the Holy Quran. We can learn the knowledge and lessons from the Quran that is necessary for peace and tranquillity both in this world and the hereafter. The Quran is a source of guidance, inspiration, healing, and cure. It’s well-proven as a medicament for black magic and the evil eye. Allah says:

وَهَٰذَا كِتَابٌ أَنزَلْنَاهُ مُبَارَكٌ فَاتَّبِعُوهُ وَاتَّقُوا لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ

“And this (is) a Book We have revealed it – blessed, so follow it and consciously revere (Allah) so that you may receive mercy.” (Surah Al-An’am, 6: 155)

Holy Quran is the last sacred holy book of Allah Almighty that was sent down to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) through the noble angel Jibril. Noble Quran is a spiritual guide for all people living in any place or time and for the whole life of man. Although Muslims give great respect to Quran and conduct their matters under the light of instructions mentioned in the Quran, however, due to the busy routine of present-day life, very few find the time of reciting the Holy Quran on daily basis. Allah says:

أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ الْقُرْآنَ وَلَوْ كَانَ مِنْ عِندِ غَيْرِ اللَّهِ لَوَجَدُوا فِيهِ اخْتِلَافًا كَثِيرًا

“Then (do) not they ponder (on) the Quran? And if it had (been) from other than Allah, surely they (would have) found in it much contradiction.” (Surah An-Nisa: 4:82)

The Holy Quran is essential to the life of every Muslim or we can say that it is a living reality. Holy Quran is a communication from Allah (SWT) in which He is directly addressing every person. The words of the Holy Quran are timeless and always valid. Every word of it is deeply relevant to our concerns and experiences, and they are to be integrated fully into our lives. Recitation of the Quran is an essential part of the daily religious practice of every Muslim in the world. Allah says:

قُلْ مَن كَانَ عَدُوًّا لِّجِبْرِيلَ فَإِنَّهُ نَزَّلَهُ عَلَىٰ قَلْبِكَ بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ مُصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ وَهُدًى وَبُشْرَىٰ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ

Say, “Whoever is an enemy to Jibreel – then indeed he brought it down on your heart by (the) permission (of) Allah confirming what (was) before it and a guidance and glad tiding(s) for the believers.” (Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:97)

Reciting Holy Quran is the best way to gain Allah’s interest. It has been set important by Allah Almighty for the Muslims for the Success. Blessed Book was uncovered in Arabic, we ought to know the interpretation to follow up on it however to the extent perusing is concerned, We ought to recount it in Arabic and for which learning Arabic standards and regulations is the first step. Allah says:

إِنَّ هَٰذَا الْقُرْآنَ يَهْدِي لِلَّتِي هِيَ أَقْوَمُ وَيُبَشِّرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ الَّذِينَ يَعْمَلُونَ الصَّالِحَاتِ أَنَّ لَهُمْ أَجْرًا كَبِيرًا

“Indeed, this, the Quran, guides to that which (is) most straight and gives glad tidings to the believers – those who do the righteous deeds, that for them (is) a reward great.” (Surah Al-Isra: 17:9)

Allah has set a reward for those who recite the Holy Quran. So, a person who recites the Quran daily will get plenty of rewards.

Here are some benefits of reciting the Holy Quran:

  1. Quran acts as a source of knowledge to the Muslims
  2. Quran teaches forgive those who did wrong to you
  3. Quran has shown mankind the path of repentance
  4. Quran acts as the first source of Islamic Shariah
  5. Quran is a source of guidance for humanity
  6. Quran is used/recited in the daily prayers
  7. Quran is a book of spiritual healing

  14. Quran separating thereby the right from the wrong

The first and perhaps the most important blessing missed by a person by not reciting the Quran on a daily basis is the forgetfulness of the real purpose of revelation. Although at the time of need and in case of any problem Muslims turn towards the Quran. Recitation of the Quran again and again never bores its readers nor do the readers lose interest by reading it over and over again. The Noble Quran contains all kinds of principles of creed, deeds, and ethics that will make a man attain real joy in life. Allah says:

لَوْ أَنزَلْنَا هَٰذَا الْقُرْآنَ عَلَىٰ جَبَلٍ لَّرَأَيْتَهُ خَاشِعًا مُّتَصَدِّعًا مِّنْ خَشْيَةِ اللَّهِ وَتِلْكَ الْأَمْثَالُ نَضْرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

“If We (had) sent down this Quran on a mountain, surely you (would) have seen I humbled, breaking asunder from (the) fear (of) Allah. And these (are) the examples, We present them to the people so that they may give thought.” (Surah Al-Hashr 59:21)

Holy Quran not only helps us to solve our daily life problems but also provides us with guidance to live and lead a successful life as it is the book of guidance for all of us. The Quran has the solution to every matter of life that a person could face in his/her life. However, when Quran reading is done on a daily basis, a Muslim gets to know about the real purpose behind the revelation.

Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran:

  • “Allah has promised those who believe and do good deeds (that) they shall have forgiveness and a mighty reward.” (Quran 5:9)
  • “And if an evil suggestion comes to you from Satan, then seek refuge in Allah. Indeed, He is Hearing and Knowing.” (Quran 7:200)
  • “O you who have been given the Scripture! Believe in what We have revealed confirming what is (already) with you…” Quran 4:47)
  •  “O you who believe! Bow down and prostrate yourselves and worship your Lord, that you may succeed.” (Quran 22:77)
  • And We have certainly made the Qur’an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember?” (Quran, 54:17)
  • “Thus have We sent this down – an Arabic Qur’an – and explained therein in detail some of the warnings, so that they may fear Allah, or that it may cause their remembrance (of Him).” (Surah Ta-Ha, 113)
  • “If the whole of mankind and Jinns were to gather together to produce the like of this Qur’an, they could not produce the like thereof, even if they backed up each other with help and support.” (Surah Al-Isra, 88)
  • “We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will certainly guard it (from corruption).” (Quran 15:09)
  •  “And be patient, for indeed, Allah does not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good.” (Quran 11:115)
  • “When thou dost read the Qur’an, seek Allah.s protection from Satan the rejected one.” (Surah An-Nahl, 98)
  • “And your God is One God. There is no god but He, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.” (Quran 2:163)

كِتَابٌ أَنزَلْنَاهُ إِلَيْكَ مُبَارَكٌ لِّيَدَّبَّرُوا آيَاتِهِ وَلِيَتَذَكَّرَ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ

“(This is) a Book We have revealed it to you, blessed, that they may ponder (over) its Verses and may be reminded those of understanding..” (Surah Sad 38:29)

Implementation of the teachings of the Holy Quran in our daily life is the most important thing to do because the Quran teaches us about each and everything. The Noble Quran has real-life stories of the old societies and traditions reason for these stories in the Quran is to understand the truth. The purpose of the Quran is to bring blessings to a person and it instigates the spirit of monitoring in the readers. There is no denying the instructional importance of the Quran for a Muslim. Allah says:

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ قَدْ جَاءَتْكُم مَّوْعِظَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَشِفَاءٌ لِّمَا فِي الصُّدُورِ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ

“O mankind! Verily has come to you instruction from your Lord, and a healing for what (is) in your breasts, and guidance and mercy for the believers.” (Surah Yunus 10:57)

As Muslims, reciting Holy Quran is our duty and we must fulfil Allah’s order. It can also bring other benefits in the form of the cleansing of the heart, revitalization of the true path, a chance of conversing with Allah and thus becoming a better Muslim every day. The Holy Quran is an extraordinary book that invades every aspect of one’s life. Its message is for everyone not just for Muslims.
