Why should We Learn Quran?

Assalam o alaikum wrwb
To understand the question we need to realize we r Muslim, A Muslim(totaly submitted to Allah subhan)
who has to obey Allah.There are two key sources of inspiration for a Muslim.
  1. Quran
  2. Hadees
What is Quran?
Grammatically, the word "qur'an"  derived from the Arabic verb qara'a ("to read" or "to recite") which is the root. The Quran itself means a book to read, to recite.
What is Hadees?
Hadeeth are the words, actions, approval or attributes that have been narrated from the Messenger Muhammad (SAW).

So being Muslims we need to  look towards Allah(quran) n Muhammad saw's (sunnat) in every aspect of life.

Reasons to learn Quran (according to Quran and hadees)

  • Allah wants us to learn it undrstand it n folow it, no other reason is greater than this.
                           Allah says: those to whom we have given the Book and they learn and they recite it observing the rights of its recitation, it is they who believe in it. And those who disbelieve in it, they are the losers.(Surah baqara:121)

  • It's Sunnat of Prophet Muhammad SAW and all the Prophets A.S.
  • After the Prophets the responsibility to spread the message of Allah has been given to Ummat e Wast the Muslims.
                             Thus, have We made of you an Ummat justly balanced, that ye might be witnesses over the nations, and the Apostle a witness over yourselves; and We appointed the Qibla to which thou wast used, only to test those who followed the Apostle from those who would turn on their heels (From the Faith). Indeed it was (A change) momentous, except to those guided by God. And never would God Make your faith of no effect. For God is to all people Most surely full of kindness, Most Merciful. (surah baqara:143)
  • It is necessary for every Muslim to learn its recitation, to learn its meanings, and to learn its interpretation.
                   ”The best of you is he who learnt the Holy Quran and taught it to others.” (Bukhari)
  • Every one wants to be best Quran is the key to be the best.
  • It removes rust from the hearts.
                         “Undoubtedly, the heart gets rusted like metal gets rusted when water goes over it. The People asked, "How can they [hearts] be cleaned." The Prophet replied, "To remember death in abundance and to recite the Holy Quran." (Mishkat)
  • To live an ideal life according to Quran, (as Allah wants us to live).
                    “Whoever read the Quran and memorized it and belived its' Halal to be Halal and its Haram to be Haram [i.e., accepted it commandments of Halal and Haraam], Allah will accept the intercession for such 10 people on from him whom Hell had already become Wajib.(Tirmizi,Ibn-e-Majah)

  • It is a universal code of life, a programme of life for man designed by Allah
  • To Succeed in this life and life after death.             
                   “O People of the Quran, do not make the Quran a pillow, that is do not be lazy and be careless, and read the Quran in the day and night like it is the Haq of Recitation, and spread it, that is, read with good voices or do not take compensation for it, and whatever is in it, reflect upon it so that you may attain success, and do not hurry in its reward because the reward for it is great (which will be given in the Akhirah). (Bahiqi)
                                               (analyse Who are we believer or losers.)
