Those to whom We have given the Book (the Quran)) recite it as it should be recited, they are the ones that believe therein. And whoso disbelieves in it (the Quran), those are they who are the losers. [Al-Baqarah:121]
Indeed ALLAH conferred a great favour on the believers when He sent among them a Messenger (Muhammad SAW) from among themselves, reciting unto them His Verses (the Quran), and purifying them, and instructing them (in) the Book (the Quran) and AlHikmah (the wisdom and the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW, while before that they had been in manifest error. [A’l-e-Imran: 164]
So, when the Quran is recited, listen to it, and be silent that you may receive mercy. [Al-Araf: 204]
The believers are only those who, when ALLAH is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Quran) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone); [Al-Anfal: 2]
Verily, those who recite the Book of ALLAH (this Quran), and perform AsSalat, and spend (in charity) out of what We have provided for them, secretly and openly, hope for a trade gain that will never perish. That He may pay them their wages in full, and give them (even) more, out of His Grace. Verily! He is Often Forgiving, Most Ready to appreciate (good deeds and to recompense). [Fatir: 29-30]
We all know from the Quran and the Ahadeeth about the countless rewards and benefits of praying and reciting Quran during the nightly prayers (last one third of the night)
As is stated in the hadeeth narrated by ‘Abd-Allah ibn ‘Amribn al-‘Aas (may ALLAH be pleased with them both), in which the Prophet (peace and blessings of ALLAH be upon him) said:
” Whoever recites ten aayaat (verses) in qiyaam will not be recorded as one of the forgetful. Whoever recites a hundred aayaat (verses) in qiyaam will be recorded as one of the devout, and whoever prays a thousand aayaat (verses) in qiyaam will be recorded as one of the muqantareen (those who pile up good deeds).” (Reported by Abu Dawood and IbnHibbaan. It is a hasan report. Saheeh al-Targheeb, 635).
