Virtues of Reciting the Qur’an

The Qur’an is a unique book of literary greatness and perfection. It is none other than the speech of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala). Indeed, there are many virtues and merits in reciting the Qur’an.

1) Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) praises those who recite the Qur’an

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) says:

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَتْلُونَ كِتَابَ اللَّهِ وَأَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَأَنْفَقُوا مِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ سِرًّا وَعَلَانِيَةً يَرْجُونَ تِجَارَةً لَنْ تَبُورَ {29} 
لِيُوَفِّيَهُمْ أُجُورَهُمْ وَيَزِيدَهُمْ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ ۚ إِنَّهُ غَفُورٌ شَكُورٌ {30} 
وَالَّذِي أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْكَ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ هُوَ الْحَقُّ مُصَدِّقًا لِمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بِعِبَادِهِ لَخَبِيرٌ بَصِيرٌ {31}
ثُمَّ أَوْرَثْنَا الْكِتَابَ الَّذِينَ اصْطَفَيْنَا مِنْ عِبَادِنَا ۖ فَمِنْهُمْ ظَالِمٌ لِنَفْسِهِ وَمِنْهُمْ مُقْتَصِدٌ وَمِنْهُمْ سَابِقٌ بِالْخَيْرَاتِ بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ هُوَ الْفَضْلُ الْكَبِيرُ {32}

“As for those who recite the Book of Allah and establish regular prayer and spend (in charity) out of what we have provided for them, secretly and openly, they intend an exchange that will not be fruitless, as Allah will pay them their due and more, from His divine bounty. For Allah is most forgiving, most appreciative. And what We have revealed to you by inspiration from the Book is the truth, verifying what preceded it; for Allah knows and sees everyone. We bequeathed scripture to those of our servants We chose; but some of them oppress their own souls, while some of them are moderate, and some of them are in the forefront in good deeds, by Allah’s leave; that is a great blessing.” [Sūrah al-Fāir: 29-32]

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) praises those who recite the Qur’an in the above verse. Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) also praises those who establish Salaah and spend in charity. Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) then reminds us of the importance of the Qur’an and that it is indeed the book of Truth which confirms the divine books of the previous Anbiyaa (Alayhim al-Salaam). 
Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) has divided those who recite the Qur’an into three groups:

1. Those who oppress themselves by not upholding the commands and injunctions of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) as mentioned in the Qur’an.

2. Those that follow the injunctions of the Qur’an without engaging in any extra acts of virtue.

3. Those that follow the injunctions of the Qur’an and engage in acts of virtue.

We should all strive to be part of the last group of people.

Allamah Qatadah (Rahmatullahi Alayhi), the great Exegete (Mufassir) of the Qur’an has narrated that Mutarrif (Rahmatullahi Alayhi) would refer tothis verse as “Ayatul Qurra” (The verse of those recite who the Qur’an) whenever he would read this verse.[1]
