1. Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) says that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “One who recites ten verses of the Holy Quran at night won’t be included among the ignorant ones. One who recites fifty verses would be included among those who remember Allah much. One who recites a hundred verses would be included among those who perform Qunoot. One who recites two hundred verses would be included among Khashi-in (most humble). One who recites three hundred verses would be included among successful people. One who recites five hundred verses would be included among Mujtahideen (Holy warriors). One who recites a thousand verses would get the reward of one Qintar and a single Qintar is worth fifteen thousand Mithqal gold and a single Mithqal comprises of twenty-four Qirat and the smallest Qirat is equal to Mount Ohad and the biggest Qirat is equal to the distance between the earth and the heaven.”
