    The Blessings of Reading The Quran

    First of all, the reward for reading the entire Quran is enormous and you don’t want to miss it.

    Narrated Muhammad bin Ka’b Al-Qurazi:
    I heard ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud saying: ‘The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “[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.”

    ‘ (Jami` at-Tirmidhi)
    Imagine 10 rewards for each letter you read from the Quran, and you actually read the entire Book!

    That’s gigantic thawab (reward), and everyone needs it.
    Most importantly, being reminded of everything Allah Almighty says in His Book is a very critical act that we all need and we should all seek to do- especially in Ramadan, the month in which the Quran was sent down.
    Now, completing the recitation of the Quran throughout the month is not an impossible act at all.

    As a matter of fact, one can easily make a daily plan that enables him/her to complete reading the Quran during the month at least once.

    If you managed to read 20 pages a day, you’ll finish reciting the whole Quran once. You can do that by either scheduling an hour a day for reading. This could be at fajr time, right after dawn—or anytime according to your schedule.
    Or, you can make it a point to read 4 pages after each of the 5 daily prayers. This will be easy and allow you to finish at a good pace.

    Second of all, reciting the Quran is highly significant, but pondering upon its meanings, studying the context, grasping the wisdom, and acting upon the teachings is what really helps the person elevate and grow.
    Quran Tafseer (Exegesis)

    So, what you can do is have a realistic plan for attempting to engage with tafseer (exegesis).

    For example, you can plan – in addition to completing the recitation- to schedule an hour a day to read or listen to a tafseer of a Surah from one Part of the Quran, like Juzz ‘Amma.

    Many teachers, like Nouman Ali Khan, have amazing tafseer of short surahs (chapters) of the Quran, which is very fulfilling and enlightening.
    You can download a podcast and listen to tafseer of a surah from Juzz’ Amma every day, either when you’re commuting or before you sleep, etc.
    Juzz’ Amma has a little over 30 surahs, and you can finish listening to tafseer of the entire Juzz in Ramadan without overwhelming yourself.

    The point is that you can schedule just a realistic portion and time for the tafseer.

    You can either go for Juzz ‘Amma or the tafseer of one long Surahs or a few surahs and focus on that goal alone this Ramadan in addition to reciting the whole book.

    This is actually very doable; it is also fulfilling and enriching and will help you have a great and rich Ramadan experience.

    The most important thing is that you ask Allah Almighty for tawfeeq (success and blessings) and that He may descend His aid and blessings upon your time and upon your heart and mind that they may learn from His Words and enjoy them, live by them, and earn their rewards in this life and the next. Ameen.

    JazakAllah @Falak
    Do you know why is it at the minimum to recite the Quran and take 10 rewards for each letter, because Allah knows well that there would be no Quran adopted in our lives, so he asks the for the minimum (recitation) just we would have an attachment with the Quran by this link of recitation. Otherwise for the people who understand reading Quran WITH UNDERSTAND is AFDHAL (the most preferable). Once I heard Dr. Zakir Naik saying, that at IRF it is obligatory for every employee to begin their duties with reading Quran with understand (even if one or two ayahs), and it is also compulsory for the non Muslim employees. All non Muslims in Europe and America who are reverting to accept Islam, first they study Quran with understanding, examine how true is our deen then they embrace Islam. And we born Muslims think that we have inherited Jannah doing nothing.

    Tafseer e Quran is always better than Reading Quran. Because we can understand by tafseer.
