Overall Rewards And Benefits Of Quran Recitation In Ramadan
There are a lot of overall benefits that reciting the Quran in Ramadan provides. Now as we have discussed the rewards of reading the Quran in Ramadan, Surah wise, now let us take a look at the overall rewards.
You Will Be Rewarded For Every Letter
“Whoever recites a letter from Allah’s Book, then he receives the reward from it, and the reward of ten the like of it. I do not say that Alif Lam Mim is a letter, but Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter and Mim is a letter”
This highlights that even if you recite one letter of the Holy Quran in the month of Ramadan, you will bet your reward.
Nothing Wrong In Stuttering
Stuttering is a natural thing that many people have to face commonly, and as you are a non-Arab, the Quran is written in the Arabic language. Therefore, a few Arabic reciters find it tough to recite the Quran in a proper way. Being a beginner or foreigner to a certain language can cause stuttering.
Hence, there is nothing wrong with that. There are a number of people who might instill fear in your heart that if you stutter, you may be committing a sin. This is not true. Everything depends on your intentions. If your intention is right when reading the Holy Quran, you will be rewarded even if you stutter.
Sayyidatina Aishah (R.A.) reported:
“The one who is proficient in the recitation of the Qur’an will be with the honourable and obedient scribes (angels), and he who recites the Qur’an and finds it difficult to recite, doing his best to recite it in the best way possible, will have two rewards.”
Quran Will Calm The Soul
The Holy Quran’s every word will provide peace to your heart and soul. The Holy Quran is the true word of Allah. No matter what type of problem or tension you are suffering from, if you recite the Holy Quran, it will provide peace to your heart.
As the Quran says:
“Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah. Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah, hearts are assured”
Quran Provides A Proper Guide
Alongside the other benefits of reciting the Holy Quran in the month of Ramadan, Allah himself has promised every Muslim that they will get a proper guide for reciting the Holy Quran. People believe that Quran recitation in the Holy month of Ramadan will guide them on a proper and brighter path.
The Holy Quran Says:
“Alif Lam Ra. (This is) the Book that We sent down to you (Muhammad) in order to bring people out of darkness into the bright lights with the permission of God, (i.e.) to the way of Almighty God, the Most Praiseworthy. “ (Quran 14:1)
Quran Saves You
The Holy Quran will save you from a lot of bad deeds and sins. Besides, the Holy Quran will save you in the afterlife as well. This notifies why reading the Holy Quran in the month of Ramadan is the best answer.
The Quran mentions this as:
“And thus We have sent it down (the Qur’an) as rule (correct) in Arabic. If you follow their wishes after knowledge comes to you, then there is nothing to protect and help you from (the torment) of Allah.” (Quran 13:37)
Perhaps the biggest reward for reading the whole Quran in Ramadan is that it adds tons of knowledge to one’s heart and mind. From historical facts to scientific discovery, to astronomy, the Quran covers everything. The Quran provided man with such knowledge that the people until now didn’t know about.
For example, the Quran explained the big bang theory, the ocean division method, the big crunch theory, and even embryology. These things were not mentioned before the Quran.
Apart from receiving spiritual rewards for reciting the Holy Quran throughout Ramadan, there are other temporal advantages to reading the Holy Quran. This is one of the advantages. Furthermore, the Quran mentions a number of natural locations that the Arabs were previously unaware of. In Surah Fatir, for example, the Quran mentions a multicoloured mountain range that is now regarded as a natural wonder.
As Surah Fatir Mentions:
“Do you not see that Allah sends down rain from the sky, and We produce thereby fruits of varying colors? And in the mountains are tracts, white and red of varying shades and (some) extremely black” (Surah Fatir verse 27)”.
The Quran Gives Your Warnings
The Holy Quran was written for everyone. The Quran was revealed to instruct, warn, and counsel people who were committing wrongdoings and sins. The Quran aids Muslims by alerting them of both good and negative things. The Holy Quran mentions it three times in three separate passages.
One of these verses is:
“And really, We have made it easy for the Qur’an to warn, so is there anyone who wants to take a lesson?” (Quran 54: 32)
Will Highlight Allah’s Greatness
The greatest benefit of reciting the Quran throughout Ramadan is that it emphasises Allah’s majesty. Allah is the one who is the greatest in all of creation. Allah led people before the Quran through Jesus, Moses, and David (A.S). Their texts, however, were altered throughout time. Through the Holy Book Quran, Allah has once again demonstrated his greatness and guided mankind.
Allah doesn’t need to demonstrate or emphasise his magnificence. The reciter can grasp and know Allah’s magnificence through reading the Quran and understanding its meaning. He leads us, cautions us, and supplies us with wisdom that the world cannot supply or know about through his Holy Book.
As the Quran mentions:
“And this (Al-Qur’an) is a (perfect) explanation for humans so that they will be warned with it so that they will know that He is God Almighty and so that those who are wise take lessons.” (Quran 14:52)
Will Add Happiness To Your Life
The Holy Quran provides us with a great deal of joy. Allah has revealed that people who do good things and believe will be rewarded with happiness and a nice position. This is confirmed in this Verse:
“Those who believe and do good, find happiness and a good place to return.” (Quran 13:29)
This demonstrates the advantages of reciting the Quran throughout Ramadan, as whoever does so will be happy in both this world and the next.
Reciting the Holy Quran can provide rewards and benefits beyond your expectations. As mentioned above, there are a lot of Quranic Surahs that are beneficial for you in different ways. Thus, instead of just sitting or sleeping out during Ramadan, recite these Surahs or finish the whole Quran, and get rewarded in different ways.
