The purpose of the Qur’an recitation workshops is to learn how to fluently recite the Qur’an and so make the Qur’an memorization project easier and most successful.
Qur’an recitation by itself is an act of worship that should be done regularly as an integral part of the Day and Night Schedule of the Believer. Its benefits are countless. First and foremost, it is a powerful way to strengthen your bond with your Lord for it is His Words and so it is as if He is “talking” to you. Also, it is a protection from evil, and a healing and mercy for believers. God says, “And We reveal of the Qur’an that which is a healing and a mercy for the believers.” (Qur’an 17:82)
Qur’an recitation enlightens the mind, body, and soul. It also enlightens the house where it is recited.
The reward is immense. Narrated by ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud, may God be pleased with him, that Prophet Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace, said, “Whoever recites a letter of the Book of God will be credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a tenfold reward. 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.” (At-Tirmidhi)
And if such recitation is done fluently, then the benefit is much greater. Narrated by ‘A’isha, may God be pleased with her, that Prophet Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace, said, “Such a person who recites the Qur’an fluently will be in the company of the noble angels. And such a person who recites the Qur’an with great difficulty will have a double reward.” (Bukhari and Muslim)
