The Merits of Reciting the Qur'an


10)  The Houses in which the Qur’an is Recited Become Illuminated to the Inhabitants of the Heavens

Al-Bayhaqī has reported on the authority of ʿĀʾisha (R) that the Prophet (PBUH) said:  “The houses in which Qur’an is recited glow to the inhabitants of the Heavens the way in which the stars glow to the inhabitants of the earth.”

Al-Ḥakīm al-Timidhī reports on the authority of Abū Hurayra (R) and Abū Dardāʾ (R), “The houses of the believers are as lanterns in front of the Throne [of God].  It is recognized by the inhabitants of the seven Heavens.  They say: ‘This light emanates from the homes of the believers who recite the Qur’an.’”

11)  Recitation of the Qur’an Purifies the Heart

Al-Bayhaqī relates in Shuʿab al-īmān on the authority of Ibn ʿUmar (R) saying, “The Messenger of God (PBUH) said: ‘This heart rusts as iron rusts when exposed to water.”  It was asked: ‘O Messenger of God what is its purifier?’  He said: ‘An abundant remembrance of death and recitation of the Qur’an.’”


15)  Sending Prayers Upon the Prophet (PBUH) is an Essential Means of Instilling Love in the Servant’s Heart for the Messenger of God (PBUH) and It is in Turn a Means of Evoking the Prophet’s (PBUH) Love for their Sender

Al-Tirmidhī relates on the authority of Ibn Masʿūd (R) saying, “The Messenger of God (PBUH) said, ‘The most worthy people of me on the Day of Judgment are those who used to send the most prayers upon me.’”  Ibn Ḥibbān has also transmitted this in his Sahih.

Thus the most worthy people of his (PBUH) love, nearness, and his exclusive intercession are those who used to send the most prayers upon him.
