قالَ الإِمامُ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَلِيٍّ الْباقِرُ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ): مَنْ قَرَأَ الْقُرآنَ قائِماً فِي صَلاتِهِ كَتَبَ اللّهُ لَهُ بِكُلِّ حَرْفٍ مِائَةَ حَسَنَةٍ وَ مَنْ قَرَأَهُ فِي صِلاتِهِ جالِساً كَتَبَ اللّهُ لَهُ بِكُلِّ حَرْفٍ خَمْسِينَ حَسَنَةٍ وَ مَنْ قَرَأَهُ فِي غَيْرَ صَلاتِهِ كَتَبَ اللّهُ لَهُ بِكُلِّ حَرْفٍ عَشْرَ حَسَناتٍ.

Imam Muhammad ibne ‘Ali al-Baqir (peace be upon him) has said: “Anyone who recites the Qur’an while standing in his Salat, Allah will record one hundred good deeds (in that person’s book) for every letter that is recited; and anyone who recites the Qur’an while sitting in his Salat, Allah will record fifty deeds (in that person’s book) for every letter recited; and one who recites it (the Qur’an) in other than his Salat, Allah will record ten good deeds for every letter that one recites.”

قالَ رَسُولُ اللّهِ (صَلَّى اللّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ): إِجْعَلُوا لِبُيُوتِكُمْ نَصِيباً مِنَ الْقُرآنِ، فَإِنَّ الْبَيْتَ الَّذِي قَرَأَ فِيهِ الْقُرآنَ تَيَسَّرَ عَلـى أَهْلِهِ، وَ كَثْرَ خَيْرُهُ وَ كانَ سُكّانُهُ فِي زِيادَةِ.

The Messenger of Allah (blessings of Allah be upon him and his family) has said: “Place a portion (of goodness) from the Qur’an in your homes, for surely ease will come to the people of that house in which the Qur’an is read, goodness will increase, and the inhabitants (of that house) will be given excess bounties.”

Hadith Number 38

قالَ الإِمامُ جَعْفَرُ ابْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ الصّادِقُ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ): مَنْ قَرَأَ الْقُرآنَ وَ هُوَ شاب مُؤْمِن إِخْتَلَطَ الْقُرآنُ بِلَحْمِهِ وَ دَمِهِ وَ جَعَلَهُ اللّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ مَعَ السَّفَرَةِ الْكِرامِ الْبَرَرَةِ وَ كانَ الْقُرآنُ حَجِيزاً عَنْهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيامَةِ.

Imam Ja’far ibne Muhammad as-Sadiq (peace be upon him) has said: “One who recites the Qur’an and is a believing youth, the Qur’an becomes mixed with his flesh and blood, and Allah - The Noble and Great - will place him with the noble, devoted Angels. In addition, the Qur’an will act as a barrier (between him and the Hell Fire) on the Day of Judgement.”

Hadith Number 39

قالَ الإِمامُ جَعْفَرُ ابْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ الصّادِقُ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ): إِنَّ الْقُرآنَ لا يُقْرَ هَذْرَمَةً وَلكِنْ يُرَتَّلُ تَرْتِيلاً فَإِذا مَرَرْتَ بِآيَةٍ فِيها ذِكْرُ الْجَنَّةِ فَقِفْ عَنْدَها وَسَلِ اللّهَ عَزَّ وَّجَلَّ (الْجَنَّةَ)، وَ إِذا مَرَرْتَ بِآيَةٍ فِيها ذِكْرُ النّارِ فَقِفْ عِنْدَها وَ تَعَوَّذَهُ بِاللّهِ مِنَ النّارِ.

Imam Ja’far ibne Muhammad as-Sadiq (peace be upon him) has said: “Surely the Qur’an is not to be read in a rush or very quickly. Rather, it should be recited in slow, measured portions. Whenever you reach a verse which talks about Heaven, then stop (at that verse) and ask from Allah (the bounties of) Heaven. And whenever you reach a verse which speaks about the Hell, then stop (at that verse) and seek protection from Allah from the Hell Fire (and the punishment).”
