Reciting Quran properly and also memorizing it, will raise our status in the heaven. The one who able to read Quran in a good way and also memorize many ayat from Quran, Allah will give him great reward in jannah.
A hadith from ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (may Allah blesses him), that the Prophet (ﷺ) says,
يُقَالُ لِصَاحِبِ الْقُرْآنِ : اقْرَأْ وَارْتَقِ وَرَتِّلْ ، كَمَا كُنْتَ تُرَتِّلُ فِي الدُّنْيَا ، فَإِنَّ مَنْزِلَكَ عِنْدَ آخِرِ آيَةٍ تَقْرَؤُهَا
“It will be said to the companion of the Qur’an: ‘Recite and rise in status as you used to recite in the world, and your position will be at the last verse you recite'” [Abu Dawood and at-Tirmidhi, al-Albani in Saheeh Abi Dawood says that this hadith is saheeh].
With this hadith, we understand that the one who memorized the Quran will attain this greater reward. Also, this hadith motivates us to learn how to recite Quran properly and in a precise manner. [Awn al-Ma‘bood fi Sharh Sunan Abi Dawood].
