The Holy Quran is my favourite book. It is the least divine book which was revealed upon our Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH). The language of the Quran is Arabic.

The Holy Quran is divided into 114 Surahs or Chapters and each Chapter consists of individual Ayaat or verses. There are in total 6,348 verses in the Holy Quran.

The text of the Holy Quran has remained unchanged over the past 1400 years. The millions of copies of the Quran circulating in the world today are all identical down to a single letter.

The Holy Quran provides us a complete code of life. It is full of knowledge wisdom and guidance. It covers moral, social, cultural and economic aspect of human life to guide us on right path.

The obvious benefit of missing the daily recitation of Quran that a person experiences is the loss of recitation benefits. Allah Almighty has set reward against each and every word of Quran, therefore, by reciting Quran on daily basis, a person gets plenty of reward, which gets missed if the recitation is not done on regular basis. Therefore, in order to gain religious reward, a Muslim needs to recite Quran on regularly every day.
