Virtues of Memorizing the Quran

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is reported to have said:
A person who recites the Quran and has memorised it, will be with noble scribes (Angels/Prophets, in Jannah)”
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 4937)

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
It will be said to the one who memorised the Quran, ‘Recite and ascend and recite just as you would recite in the world, for your abode (in Jannah) will be the last verse you recite”  
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2914, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 1464, Declared authentic –hasanun sahih– by Imam Tirmidhi)

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘ The Qur’aan will come on the Day of Resurrection like a pale man saying to its companion, “Do you recognize me? I am the one who made you stay up at night and made you thirsty during the day…” Then he will be given dominion in his right hand and eternity in his left, and a crown of dignity will be placed upon his head, and his parents will be clothed with garments which far surpass everything to be found in this world. They will say, “O Lord, how did we earn this.” It will be said to them, “Because you taught your child the Qur’aan.”’
(Narrated by al-Tabaraani in al-Awsat, 6/51).

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘ Whoever reads the Qur’aan, learns it and acts in accordance with it, on the Day of Resurrection his parents will be given a crown to wear whose light will be like the light of the sun, and his parents will be given garments which far surpass everything to be found in this world. They will say, “Why have we been given this to wear?” It will be said, “Because your child learned the Qur’aan.”
(Narrated by al-Haakim, 1/756)
