Quran is the last divine book that Allah revealed to the prophet Muhammed [pbuh] for Muslims. It is the sacred word of God intended to guide the believers to the straight path and to correct any mistakes in the previous Holy books. Recitation of the Quran is considered great worship for which the person is rewarded.

As the prophet said “whoever recites a letter from Allah’s book, he will get the reward from it, and the reward of a letter is like ten. We do not consider Alf lam mim ia a letter, But alif is a letter, Lam is a letter, mim is a letter.” Also, the person who is proficient in the recitation of the Quran will be with the most honorable and obedient angels in the Hereafter, however, the person who is not perfect in the recitation and finds it difficult and does his best to recite will get two rewards, one for recitation and the other for his trials to recite.

Also, Quran is the source of guidance. Allah {S.W.T} included the right choice for every issue in life in it. You will find a solution to any problem you face and any situation you get through and it brings you comfort and the feeling of safety too.
