When Jebreel A.S came to Prophet Mummd PBUH with first revelation and said:
"Read in the name of your Lord, who has created (all that exists), created man from a clot. Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous.” (96:1-5)

This set the fundamentals of the Prophetic message to all human beings. The importance of seeking knowledge and learning in islam is clearly described.

These are the basic benefits that one can get from the Quran. There are other numerous benefits that we get by learning the Quran, in this world and hereafter. Now, let’s have a look and try to understand a few of them .
A Reward is given on reading every word of Quran:
That’s Right! Yes! A reward is given on reading not one surah, not one ayah, but on reading every word/letter of it. Subhan Allah!.
It is reported by Hazrat Ayesha R.A
Translation: Whosoever recites a letter from Allah's Book, then he receives the reward from it, and the reward of ten the like of it. 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-Tirmizi)
For many of us, Arabic being the foreign language might be difficult to learn and read. Especially when we are beginners in learning Arabic, we tend to stutter and might find it difficult to read the Quran fluently. Not understanding .But not to fear, Allah s.w.t. is All-Knowing, Most Merciful is doubling the reward for all your hard work to learn and read the Quran
Again it is narrated by Hazrat Ayesha R.A
Translation: "The one who is proficient in the recitation of the Qur'an will be with the honourable and obedient scribes (angels), and he who recites the Qur'an and finds it difficult to recite, doing his best to recite it in the best way possible, will have two rewards." (Sahih Al-Bukhari & Muslim)
So, why not to gain this guaranteed reward on a daily basis and learn to read the Quran properly.
