At the beginning of each dawn and with the rise of a new sun, every day we are given a fresh new 24 hours into our life. It’s up to us how we use them or how we spend them.
And if we calculate accurately how much time we consume in sleeping, eating, TV, social media and other matters, we will be really surprised by how much we have wasted of our lives over the years.
It is said that our life is a gift that’s why it’s called the present, but this gift gets shrinking every day and will eventually vanish without prior notice. So it’s all about the life we give into our years, our legacy that we build and leave behind and our valuable deeds that keep on living until the day of judgement.
One of the most fruitful investments that we can do for ourselves is to recite Quran. We can never imagine how countless its benefits are to our mind, body, soul and for sure our after life.
Quran is like a bottomless well of knowledge or a magnificent deep ocean. The more you dive in and explore, the more beautiful marvels your soul encounters. And only then this ocean will reveal its secrets for you.
Lets explore what happens when we recite Quran
1. Inner peace
You get rest, tranquility, mercy, Allah mentions you in himself and you draw yourself closer to Him when you recite Quran. You need proof?
الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُم بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ ۗ أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُالرعد-28
Who have believed and whose hearts have rest in the remembrance of Allah. Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest!
How often you need to recite Quran is up to you but those who get attached to Quran feel the immense difference when they stop for a while.
2. Increase in your Iman
When you attentively recite Quran and ponder its meanings, your heart reacts to its stories. You seek refuge when you read about punishment warnings, you feel hope when you read about promises of rewards, and you feel that Allah is speaking to you, comforting your heart and guiding you to His path. Only then your hard heart will soften and will be thirsty for more. Your urge to improve yourself and be a better Muslim will be natural.
إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ الَّذِينَ إِذَا ذُكِرَ اللَّهُ وَجِلَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَإِذَا تُلِيَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتُهُ زَادَتْهُمْ إِيمَانًا وَعَلَىٰ رَبِّهِمْ يَتَوَكَّلُون
The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, their hearts become fearful, and when His verses are recited to them, it increases them in faith; and upon their Lord, they rely.Al-Anfal 8:2
3. Recite and ascend
When you recite Quran regularly, it becomes your companion in Dunya by giving you the light that your heart needs. Then it becomes your only companion in your dark grave when you’re at your utmost loneliness. It will be the light, the warmth, the shelter and the assuring friend.
And on the day of judgement, it will be your shafiie’ who will ask Allah to forgive you.
Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said: “Read the Quran, for verily it will come on the Day of Standing as an intercessor for its companions.”Muslim
Allah promised another special bonus for those who stand out and memorize the Quran. Your position in paradise will be elevated based on how much Quran you memorized in your life and recited on the day of judgement.
Prophet Muhammad (SAW) stated: “It will be said to the companion of the Qur’an: Read and elevate (through the levels of the Paradise) and beautify your voice as you used to do when you were in the dunyaa! For verily, your position in the Paradise will be at the last verse you recite!”Abu Dawood
May Allah make the Quran the spring of our heart, the light of our chest, and the remover of our sorrow and worries.
