اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ خَيْرَ عُمْرِي آخِرَهُ ، وَ خَيْرَ عَمَلِي خَوَاتِمَهُ ، وَ خَيْرَ أَيَّامِى يَوْمَ أَلْقَاكَ فِيهِ

O Allah, I am Your servant, son of Your servant, son
of Your maidservant, my forelock is in Your hand, Your command over me
is forever executed and Your decree over me is just. I ask You by every
name belonging to You which You named Yourself with, or revealed in Your
Book, or You taught to any of Your creation, or You have preserved in
the knowledge of the unseen with You, that You make the Qur’an the life
of my heart and the light of my breast, and a departure for my sorrow
and a release of my anxiety.
[The Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, there is no-one who is afflicted by distress and grief, and says (the above), but Allah will take away his distress and grief, and replace it with joy." He was asked: "O Messenger of Allah, should we learn this?" He said: "Of course; everyone who hears it should learn it]
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ الْمَسْأَلَةِ ، وَ خَيْرَ الدُّعَآءِ ، وَ خَيْرَ النَّجَاحِ ، وَ خَيْرَ الْعِلْمِ ، وَ خَيْرَ الْعَمَلِ ، وَ خَيْرَ الثَّوَابِ ، وَ خَيْرَ الْحَيَاةِ وَ خَيْرَ الْمَمَاتِ ، وَ ثَبِّتْنِي وَ ثَقِّلْ مَوَازينِي ، وَ حَقِّقْ إِيمَانِي ، وَارْفَعْ دَرَجَتِي ، وَ تَقَبَّلْ صَلاَتِي ، وَاغْفِرْ خَطِيئَاتِي ، وَ أَسْأَلُكَ العُلاَ مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ
Allahumma inni as'aluka khairal masalati, wa khairad-du'ui, wa khairan-najahi, wa khairal-'amali, wa khairath-thawabi, wa khairal-hayaati, wa khairal mamaati, wa thabbitni wa thaqqil mawaazini, wa haqqiq imaani warf'a darajati wa-taqabbal salaati, wa as'alukad-darajatil'ula minal-Jannah.

Allahumma ahsin 'aqiba-tana filumri kulliha, wa ajirna min khizzid-dunya wa adhabal-akhira

Whoever recites the
Qur'an well and clearly is equal in rank to the Angels who record
creation's deeds. These Angels are gracious, honorable and of lofty
rank. He who finds difficulty in reciting the Qur'an will obtain a
[Sahih al-Bukhari, Muslim]
It is narrated that ibn Mas'ud said, Whoever completes the recitation has a du'a which is answered
A person whose breast is devoid of the Qur'an (i.e. has not learnt anything of the Qur'an Majeed) is like a desolate house.
A person who recites one letter of the Qur'an, obtains one virtue; each virtue multiplies to ten virtues. I am not saying that (ALM) is one letter. But, Alif is one letter; Laam is one letter and Meem is one letter.
On the day of Resurrection a crown of such brilliance will be placed on the heads of the parents of one who learnt the Qur'an and practiced on its laws, that its glitter will outshine the brilliance of the sun which penetrates your houses. What then do you think will be the position of the one who himself learnt the Qur'an and acted in accordance with it?
[Ahmad, Abu Dawud]
Whoever recites the Qur'an, memorizes it, accepts its halal (lawful things) as halal and haram (forbidden things) as haram (i.e. his beliefs in these matters are correct), Allah, the Exalted, will enter him to Paradise and accept his intercession on behalf of ten such persons of his family upon whom entry into Hell has become incumbent (i.e. Allah will forgive them because of his intercession)."
[Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, Darimi]
Continue reciting the Qur'an because on the Day of Qiyaamah it will appear as an intercessor for the reciter.
Whoever listens to even a single ayat (being recited by another person) obtains such a virtue which perpetually multiplies (it increases in merit continuously). The one who recited the ayat will on the Day of Resurrection find the recited ayat in the form of a Noor (which will be of greater value and significance than the virtue which accrued to the one who had listened to the recitation).
The best among you are those who learn the Qur'an and teach it.
On the Day of Resurrection the Qur'an will petition Allah to cloak the one who had recited it with garments of honor and respect. A crown of honor will then be placed on the head of the reciter. The Qur'an will then petition Allah to shower His pleasure on the reciter. Allah will then become pleased with him. The reciter will then be asked to recite the Qur'an, thereby attaining higher ranks of elevation. In reward for each ayat a virtue will accrue to him.
[at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Khuzaimah]
Continue climbing (higher and higher in rank) with your recitation in the same way as you recited with care and concern on earth. Your abode (of residing) is located (at that rank attained) with the last ayat recited.
[at-Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, Ibn Habban]
