Reciting Qur’an for one’s child

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: When I fell pregnant with my little one, the Moulana advised my husband and I to read as much Quraan as possible to the baby in the womb. Now that he is born, I am trying to continue. While he plays, I pray Quraan aloud to him and when he sleeps I play surah Yaseen, Ar Rahmaan , Yusuf or surah Maryam from my phone. Alhamdulillah, I know reading Quraan can bring overall benefits to the baby but I was wondering if anyone knows specific benefits? Or can someone advise me on how to do this better?


A: Continue reciting the Qur’an and make dua that Allah Ta’ala blesses your child with His special mercy and accepts him for Deen.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
