The importance of reciting Qur’aan Shareef daily at home
by Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Madrasah Taleemuddeen)
It is necessary for every home to introduce the recitation of the Qur’aan every day. There was a time when every morning and evening, every Muslim home would be buzzing with the recitation of Qur’aan. Men, women and children would all be engaged in tilaawah. This brings about immense barakah into our homes and protects ones home from many evils and wrongs.

Below are three immediate benefits of reciting the Qur’aan which are mentioned in the Noble Ahaadeeth of Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam: 
1. Protects one from kufr:
The members of that home wherein the Qur’aan is recited is protected from kufr and shirk. (this has been explained in detail by Hadhrat Mufti Muhammad Shafee Saahib (RA) in Ma’ariful Qur’aan Vol.5 Pg.20)
2. Protects one from fitnah:
 Sayyiduna Ibn Abaas Radhiyallahu Anhu has reported that Jibreel Alayhi Salam once told Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam that many fitnahs will appear. Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam asked, “What will be the way out, O Jibreel?” He replied, “The Book of Allah.”
Sheikh ul Hadeeth, Moulana Muhammad Zakariyyah Kaandhlawi (RA) comments on this Hadeeth, “Reciting the Qur’aan saves a person from fitnah. If the Qur’aan is recited in the home, peace and mercy descends on it and shaytaan leaves immediately. Sayyiduna Ali Radhiyallahu Anhu says that Yahyaa Alayhi Salam told the Bani Isra’eel, ‘Allah orders you to read His book and if you do so, you will be like a people protected in a fort. On whichever side the army wants to attack you from, they will find the Word of Allah Ta’aala there as a guard to chase them.’”
3. Protects one from Jinnaat and Sihr
Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Abbaas Radhiyallahu Anhu narrated that Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said, “He in whose heart there is no part of the Qur’aan is like an empty house.”
Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah Radhiyallahu Anhu says, “The house in which the Qur’aan is recited, it’s household members increase, virtues and barakah multiply, angels come down upon them and shaytaan runs far away from there but the house in which the Qur’aan is not recited, life therein becomes difficult and empty of barakah, angels leave the house and shaytaan lives in it.”
Ibn Mas’ood and other Sahaabah Radhiyallahu Anhum have reported that Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said, "An empty house is one in which the Qur’aan is not recited.”

Ibn al-Qayyim رحمه الله stated:

There is nothing more beneficial to the heart than reciting the Qur’ān, with contemplation and reflection. The Qur’ān bequeathes love, aspiration, fear, hope, repentance, reliance, pleasure, contentment, authority, gratitude, patience, and the all other [necessary] conditions that are life [i.e.vital] to the heart and perfection of it. Likewise, it repels all reprehensible characteristics and actions which cause corruption and destroy the heart.

_Miftāh Dār is-Sa’ādah, 1/187._
