Reciting the Qur’ān during prayer

‘Ā’isha (RA) reported the Prophet (ﷺ) as saying, “Reciting the Qur’ān during prayer is more excellent than reciting it at other times, and reciting the Qur’ān at a time other than during prayer is more excellent than extolling God and declaring His greatness. Extolling God is more excellent than sadaqa, sadaqa is more excellent than fasting, and fasting is a protection from hell.”

(Mishkat al-Masabih 2166, Book 8, Hadith 56)

Alhamdulillah for the blessings of all the ways to remember and glorify Allah, which open the way to forgiveness, mercy and protection from the Hellfire. Do all that you can because all it requires is your time. When every second is given to you by Allah, show gratitude and use each moment wisely.
