and mentioned the incident to him. He (PBUH) said, "
That was tranquillity which descended as a result of the
recitation of the Qur'an.
This Hadith brings out two points. Firstly, the excellence of Surat Al-Kahf (
The Cave, No. 18
Secondly, the descending of tranquillity from Allah on the pious persons. The appearance of a cloud for the
tranquillity of heart on the recitation of the Qur'an is a supernatural event (
) to which a pious man does not
make any contribution. It entirely depends on the Will of Allah.

Ibn Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
recites a letter from the Book of Allah, he will be credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a ten-fold reward.
I do not say that Alif-Lam-Mim is one letter, but Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter and Mim is a letter
This Hadith urges us to recite the Qur'an and also mentions the great reward for reciting it.

Ibn `Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
He who does
not memorize any part from the Qur'an he is like the ruined house.
This Hadith means that the heart of that Muslim is devoid of grace of spiritualism and Grace of Allah
who does not remember by heart any portion of the Qur'an, in the same way as a deserted house is deprived of
inhabitants and Blessings of Allah. What we learn from this is that every Muslim must remember some portion of
the Qur'an so that he is safe from the admonition mentioned in this Hadith.

`Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`As (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "
one who was devoted to the the Qur'an will be told on the Day of Resurrection: `Recite and ascend (in ranks) as you
used to recite when you were in the world. Your rank will be at the last Ayah you recite
[Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].
This Hadith mentions the merit of those who commit the Qur'an (
whole or part thereof
) to memory
). The word `
' here means to rise in ranks in the Jannah. The more one remembers the Qur'an, the
more clear and distinct is his recitation of it, the higher would be the status that he will go on attaining through its
blessings. Thus, this Hadith provides inducement for the remembrance of the Qur'an and tells us that its frequent
recitation is a means to attain higher ranks in Jannah
