Quote from Bakkah.net – Nine Great Benefits of Reading and Reflecting over the Qur’aan:
1. Reading and reflecting over the Qur’aan fulfills an Islaamic duty

Indeed the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) summarized this Religion with his statement:

“The Religion is naseehah (sincerity)!”

So then Tameem ibn Aws (may Allaah be pleased with him) then said, “We asked, ‘To whom?'” He (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) replied:

“To Allaah, HIS BOOK, His Messenger, the leaders of the people, and their common folk.” [2]

The sincerity that is due to the Book of Allaah, as Ibn Rajab Al-Hambalee said, includes having a strong love for it, honoring it and extolling its great status, affirming that it is the Speech of Allaah, seeking to understand its meanings, acting by it, following the orders found in it, spreading its correct understanding, continually studying it, and taking on the good manners that are encouraged in it. [3]

So by reading and reflecting over the Qur’aan, one fulfills an obligation and is rewarded for that. Upon fulfilling this obligation, the Qur’aan then becomes a proof for him on the Day of Judgement! And that is our second benefit we will take by embracing this Noble Book…

May Allah bless and have mercy upon our scholars and teachers, may Allah increase me and all of you in beneficial knowledge allahumma aameen
