“The benefits of reciting the pure words of Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala, are so great that no individual is able to compile them in any one book. Hence, only a few are mentioned below as a reminder of the bounties of Allah upon those who recite his glorious Qur’an.
The Prophet, ﷺ, said;
Whosoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah, he will receive a reward. That reward is then (multiplied) ten-fold. I do not say Alif-Laam-Meem is one letter, but Alif is a letter, Laam is a separate letter and Meem is another letter. [Tirmidhi].

Ilm ut Tajweed is the science that deals with the pronunciation of Arabic letters from their correct Makhaarij along with their correct Sifaat. Its purpose is to make a person proficient in correct Qur’an recitation without mistakes. Learning its rules and principles is Fardh Kifayah, but its application in Qur’an recitation is Fardh ‘Ain.”
