Reciting Quran every day has many benefits and virtues, but what are they? And how will we be rewarded? That’s what we will discover shortly.
The prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said: “Fasting and the Qur’an will intercede for a person on the Day of Resurrection. Fasting will say, ‘O Lord, I deprived him of food and desires during the day, so let me intercede for him.’ The Qur’an will say, ‘O Lord, I deprived him of his sleep at night, so let me intercede for him.’ Then they will both intercede for him.” [Narrated by Ahmad, al-Tabaraani and al-Haakim]
The prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) also said: “It will be said to the companion of the Qur’an: Recite and rise in status, recite as you used to recite in the world, for your status will be at the last verse that you recite.”
From those two hadiths we can see the great importance of reading the Quran daily, but let’s learn more about the benefits and rewards of reciting the Quran every day.
