Do a sunnah each day
Smile, say ‘Bismillah’ before drinking, sleep on the right side – there are so many.
Reading each letter of the Quran is worth 10 rewards, that is multiplied in Ramadan and doubled if you are struggling to learn. As an authentic hadith in At-Tirmithee proves: “Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah, he will have a reward. And that reward will be multiplied by ten. I am not saying that “Alif, Laam, Meem” is a letter, rather I am saying that “Alif” is a letter, “laam” is a letter and “meem” is a letter.” So increase your recitation of the Qur’an to gain these merits, and to gain the following merit as well.
