The Holy Quran is the Book of Allah (SWT). In traditions, it is mentioned that one who wants to converse to Allah should supplicate (recite Dua) and one who wants Allah (SWT) to converse to him, then he should recite Quran for it contains the words of Allah (SWT).

BENEFITS OF QURAN RECITATION

Indeed those who recite the Book of Allah and maintain the prayer, and spend out of what We have provided them, secretly and openly, expecting a commerce that will never go bankrupt, that He may pay them their reward in full and enhance them out of His grace, indeed He is All-forgiving, All-appreciative. (35:29)

The Holy Prophet (saww) said, Verily these hearts rust just as iron rusts Somebody asked, Then what is its remedy? The Holy Prophet (saww) replied, Recitation of Quran. (Kanzul-˜Ummaal)

Imam Ali bin Abi Talib (as) has said, The vaccine of Imaan (faith) is the recitation of Quran. (Ghurar al-Hikam)

MEMORISING QURAN

It is also highly desired and recommended that a Muslim should strive to memorise the chapters and verses of the Holy Quran.

No indeed! These (verses of Quran) are a reminder. So let anyone who wishes remember it. In honoured scriptures, exalted and purified, in the hands of the envoys (scribes), noble and pious. (80:12-16)

Imam Jaffar as-Sadiq (as) has said, One who memorises Quran and acts upon it shall be with (its) envoys (or scribes) who are noble and pious.(Bihar al-Anwaar)

The Holy Prophet (saww) has said, One whom Allah has blessed with memorisation of His book (Quran) and such a person thinks that somebody else has been blessed more than him, then he is ungrateful for the greatest blessing. (Kanzul-Ummaal)

He (saww) has also said, One in whose breast (heart) there is nothing from Quran is like a house that has become a ruin. (Kanzul-Ummaal)
