Imam Saadiq, (A), is quoted as saying, "The holy Qur’an is the
covenant between Allah and His creatures. A Muslim must look into
his covenant and read at least fifty verses from it every day."
Zuhri has said, Imam Zayn al-Abidin, (A) said, "Verses of the holy
Qur’an are treasures, and whenever a treasure is opened one should
look into it to find what there is in it."
Imam Ali Redha, (A), is quoted as saying, "Every day after the
morning prayer one must read (at least) fifty verses of the holy
Qur’an."
Imam Saadiq, (A), said, "When a Muslim reads from the holy Qur’an
in his house, that house will shine to those in heaven just as stars from
heavens shine to us on earth."
Imam Saadiq quoted from Amir-ul-Mu’minin, Ali, (A), who said, "A
house in which the holy Qur’an is read and Allah is mentioned often,
its blessings increase, the angels come to it, Satans move out of it and
it will shine to those in heavens as stars shine to us from the heavens.
A house in which the holy Qur’an is not read and Allah is not

mentioned, its blessings decrease, the angels move out and Satans
move in."
Imam Saadiq, peace be up on them, is quoted as saying "My father
would call us together and would order us to say Thikr until sunrise
and then would order those of us who could read to read from the
holy Qur’an and to those who could not read, he would order them to
say Thikr. The house in which the holy Qur’an is read and Allah is
mentioned, blessings therein increase."
The holy Prophet, (S), is quoted as saying, "Light up your houses by
reading from the holy Qur’an and do not turn them into your graves
as the Jews and Christians had done; they would pray in their
Synagogue and Churches and had ignored their houses. The house in
which holy Qur’an is read often and Allah's holy names are
mentioned, blessings therein increase, their people prosper and they
shine to those in heavens as the stars from heavens shine to earth."

Imam Ali al-Redha (A) has narrated from the holy Prophet (S) who
said, "Set for your house a share from the holy Qur’an; for the house
in which the Qur'an is recited brings ease, and plenty for those who
dwell in it and if the Qur'an is not recited in it then it will become
difficult for the household and they will be in need."
Imam Saadiq, (A), said, "What stops a man, when he comes back
home from work, from reading one Surah of the holy Qur’an before
he goes to sleep? For he will be accredited with ten good deeds, and
also ten foul deeds will be erased for each verse that he reads."

Imam Saadiq has narrated from the holy Prophet, peace be up on
them, who said, "One who reads ten verses of the holy Qur’an each
night his name will not be written among the names of those who do
not care much about (religion) and one who reads fifty verses of the
holy Qur’an each night, his name will be written with the names of
those who remember Allah, one who reads one hundred verses of the
holy Qur’an every night, his name will be written with the name of the
worshippers, one who reads two hundred verses of the holy Qur’an,
his name will be written with those who are submissive, before Allah,
one who reads thee hundred verses, his name will be written with the
victorious ones, one who reads five hundred verses, his name will be
written with the hard working ones for the cause of Allah, and one
who reads one thousand verses of the holy Qur’an, one Quintar will

be written for him and a Quintar is fifteen thousand (or fifty
thousand) Mithqual of gold and a Mithqual is twenty Quirat, the
smallest of which is equal to the size of the mountain of Ohod and the
biggest of them is the size of the space between heaven and earth."

Abi Hamza al-Thamali has narrated from Imam Baaqir, (A), who has
said, "One who reads all of the holy Qur’an in Mecca in one week or
before a week or more than a week and completes it on Friday, Allah
will write for him the reward of all the good deeds that may have
taken place since the first in this world Friday to the last Friday that
will come in this world and the same would be the case if reading is
completed in other days."
Jabir (al-Ansari) has narrated from Imam Baaqir, (A), who said, "For
every thing there is spring. The spring for the holy Qur’an is the
month of Ramadan."
