“One who tries to memorize the Holy Quran with extreme difficulty due to a weak memory will get two rewards.” He further said, “Why don’t the people who trade in markets whole day not recite a Surah when they return to their homes at night before going to bed? If they do so they would get ten rewards for each verse and ten sins will be wiped off.”

“One who memorizes a Surah of Quran and then forgets it, this Surah will appear on an elevated place on the Day of Judgment with a beautiful look. When the person will look at it, he will ask: Who are you? You are so beautiful that I would have loved to own you. It will reply: Didn’t you recognize me? I am so and so Surah. If you hadn’t forgotten me, I would have elevated you also to this position.”

 “One who recites a hundred verses in Salaat-e-Shab, Allah would note down the reward of offering Salaat for the whole night for him and one who recites two hundred verses at night apart from Salaat-e-Shab, the Almighty Allah would write a Qintar of good deeds on Lauh-e-Mahfuz. A single Qintar is equal to twelve hundred Awqiya and a single Awqiya is bigger that Mount Ohad.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 142

Fatima (ع) Daughter of Muhammad (ص): Fatima (615 – 632 A.D.), mother of the Imams (ع), is the daughter of the Messenger of Allah (ص) by his first wife, Khadija daughter of Khuwaylid, may the Almighty be pleased with her. Fatima was born in Mecca on a Friday, the 20th of Jumada II in the fifth year after the declaration of the Prophetic message which corresponds, according to the Christian calendar, to the year 615.
She was only 18 and 75 days when she died in Medina few days only (some say 75) after the death of her revered father (ص): The Prophet (ص) passed away on Safar 28/May 28 according to the Christian Gregorian calendar, or the 25th according to the Julian calendar, of the same year.
Fatima passed away on the 14th of Jumada I of 11 A.H. which corresponded to August 7, 632 A.D. She was buried somewhere in the graveyard of Jannatul-Baqi' in Medina in an unmarked and unknown grave. According to her will, her husband, Imam Ali (ع), did not leave any marks identifying her grave, and nobody knows where it is. According to Shiite Muslims, she was the only daughter of the Holy Prophet (ص).
Fatima has nine names/titles: Fatima فاطمة, al-Siddiqa الصديقة (the truthful one), al-Mubaraka المباركة (the blessed one), al-Tahira الطاهرة (the pure one), al-Zakiyya الزكية (the chaste one), al-Radhiayya الرضية (the grateful one), al-Mardhiyya المرضية (the one who shall be pleased [on Judgment Day]), al-Muhaddatha المحدثة (the one, other than the Prophet, to whom an angel speaks) and al-Zahra الزهراء (the splendid one).

Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his father that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “The ranks of the people of Quran come next to that of the prophets and messengers. Don’t ever consider the people of Quran as weak and don’t reduce their rights for they have a high status near Allah.”

“One who recites a complete Quran between time span of two Fridays or more or less than that then concludes this recitation on Friday Allah would note down the reward of all the good deeds performed from a Friday before his birth till the last Friday.

“If a youth among believers recites the Holy Quran it gets mixed in his flesh and blood. The Almighty Allah would keep him with virtuous and honored angels and the Holy Quran would act as a shield against the fire of Hell for him on the Day of Judgment. The Holy Quran would say, ‘People who acted upon anything except me have got their result. O Allah! You give the best rewards to these people’. Allah would make the reciter of the Holy Quran wear two dresses of Paradise and keep the crown of honor on his head. Allah would tell the Holy Quran, ‘Are you satisfied now?’ It would reply, ‘I desire a better reward’. Now Allah would grant peace from right and an eternal Paradise from left and then make him enter Paradise. He would be told in Paradise, ‘Go on reciting a verse of the Holy Quran and your position will go on increasing by one level for each of them’. Then the Holy Quran would be addressed, ‘Are you pleased now?’ The Holy Quran would say, ‘Yes my Lord!’” Imam (a.s.) says that one who recites the Holy Quran much and is regular in it, the Almighty Allah would grant him this reward twice.

Recite the Quran in a pleasant voice, in the style of Arabs. You are ordered to avoid the transgressors and doers of greater sins. Certainly, such people will appear in the world who will recite the Quran in a singing manner to make the listeners emotional. It is not allowed to go near these people or to call them near you. The hearts of these people have deviated and those who are influenced by them shall also have their hearts deviated.
