Love of Allaah ‘Azza wa Jall entails love of the Qur.aan, and love of the Messenger (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) entails acting in accordance with his Sunnah.
Whoever wishes to know whether he loves Allaah and His Messenger, then he should [ponder and] reflect; if he loves the Qur.aan, then [this indicates] he loves Allaah and His Messenger.
Ibn Taymiyyah completed the recitation of the Qur.aan 80 times whilst in al-Qal’ah prison, in Damascus
Very mistaken is he who thinks that encouraging children to memorise the Qur.aan preoccupies them or delays their achievement at school.
My father would not sleep [at night] until he had read half of the Qur.aan, and when he finished his recitation, he would wrap himself in his cloak then take a short nap.
