The Holy Quran is a complete code of conduct for the Muslims. Reciting even a small portion of it is conducive to repelling the Satan. The code of conduct is expressive in every verse of the Holy Quran and with due comprehension, these verses can lead to a life free from the temptations of the Satan. The proximity with the message of the Holy Quran is a remedy from all the temptations of the Satan. Holy Quran contains solutions to all our worldly and spiritual problems. It is the miracle that Allah presented to Holy Prophet (PBUH) and told him to vociferously preach its word to the mankind.
Surah Al Furqan establishes Holy Quran as the Criterion for success for the Muslims. Therefore, Quran is full of guidance on the road to success. Recitation and comprehension of a single ayat every day is a small price to pay to achieve success. A person can only be successful in front of Allah if he/she is free from the influence of the Satan. In a nutshell, Quran teaches us how to repel the futile temptations of the Satan.
In order to fulfill our daily obligations, we tend to keep away from the Holy Quran. This drives a wedge between us and Allah and allows the Satan to tempt us into incurring sinful activities. These activities eventually lead us astray. Recitation of an ayat daily will remind us that we have to fulfill the covenant with Allah Almighty. In accordance with that covenant, we will undertake pious actions in our lives. Furthermore, we will take one step a day on the road towards piety (Taqwa). Piety is the state in which a Muslim only performs those actions which are in conformity to the laws put forth by Allah.
Reading an ayat a day is a source of constant reminder that Allah is the Lord and the Cherisher of the universe and we should direct all our prayer to Him alone. It will also remind us of the merciful and forgiving nature of Allah and that we shall implore Him in the hour of need.
Holy Quran also contains a plethora of supplications that one can recite on daily basis. In Surah Al Baqarah, verse 201, Quran says:
Our Lord! Give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the torment of the Fire! (Al-Baqarah, 201)
Recitation of this surah proclaims the Lordship of Allah and rejection of the Satan. It also entails Allah to be the sole provider and cherisher of the universe. The reciter implores Allah to provide only what is good in this world and in the Hereafter. The reciter also asks for protection against the blazing Hellfire. Ayats like this inculcate the fear of Allah in our hearts and save us from the evil and shrewd intentions of the Satan.
An ayah a day fosters and rekindles the concept of faith in a Muslim’s heart. He conforms to the ideology and teachings of Islam so that the odds of going astray are minimized to a great extent. Quran says in Surah Al-Baqarah:
"And behold, We said to the angels: "Bow down to Adam" and they bowed down. Not so Iblis: he refused and was haughty: He was of those who reject Faith."
This ayat is a testament to the fact that the presence of strong faith eradicates all the evils of Satan from the heart of a Muslim. One can only strengthen faith using the text of the Holy Quran as it is the ultimate word of Allah.
