Abdullaah ibn ‘Amr ibn Al-’Aas heard the Prophet (pbuh) saying: “It will be said to the companion of the Qur’an: Read and elevate (through the levels of Paradise) and beautify your voice as you used to do when you were in the dunyaa (world)! For verily, your position in Paradise will be at the last verse you recite!” [At-Tirmidi]

Aboo Umaamah relates that the Prophet (pbuh) said: “Read the Qur’an, for verily it will come on the Day of Resurrection as an intercessor for its companions.” [Muslim]

The Prophet (pbuh) said, 'Allah the Almighty has said: "Whosoever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, I shall be at war with him. My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have imposed upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it.' [Related in Bukhari]
