Reading the Quran is one of the many ways to soothe one’s soul and spirit and the best way to gain hasanat. Every letter you read gives you 10 hasant. This hasanat is written in your sahifa or recorded by the Angels that are set to monitor you every day. There are not enough words that can be said on the power of the Quran, whether healing powers or cleansing ones.
In Surah, Isra God mentions the healing properties of the Quran by saying :
And We reveal of the Quran that which is a healing and a mercy to the believers, and it adds only to the perdition of the unjust.
وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ الْقُرْاٰنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَاۤءٌ وَّرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِيْنَۙ وَلَا يَزِيْدُ الظّٰلِمِيْنَ اِلَّا خَسَارًا
which means that the Quran can be read for hasanat, for when you’re feeling down, or when you are sick and you need help. Quran makes everything better!
The entire Quran can be read and recited in 10 hours, if you are very good and sleek with it. If you are an ordinary reader, it will depend on your pace. If you are very fast you can read the whole Quran in one day by reading every part in about 12 minutes.

“قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ “ الْمَاهِرُ بِالْقُرْآنِ مَعَ السَّفَرَةِ الْكِرَامِ الْبَرَرَةِ وَالَّذِي يَقْرَؤُهُ يَتَتَعْتَعُ فِيهِ وَهُوَ عَلَيْهِ شَاقٌّ لَهُ أَجْرَانِ

Should I recite the Quran in sequence if I want to complete it?
It is better to recite the Quran in the right order if you want to complete it. Al-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said in al-Tibyaan about this matter:
“The scholars (may Allah have mercy on them) said: The best is to read it in the order in which it appears in the Mushaf, so he should read al-Faatihah, then al-Baqarah, then Aal ‘Imraan, then al-Nisa’, until he ends with Qul a’oodhu bi Rabbi l-naas (Sooratal-Naas), whether he is reciting it in prayer or otherwise. It is also mustahabb, if he recites one surah, to recite after it the surah that comes after it. So if he recites Qul a’oodhu bi Rabbi l-naas (Sooratal-Naas) in the first rak’ah, he should recite from al-Baqarah in the second.
The evidence for that is that the order of surahs given in the Mushaf is for a reason, so that order should be followed, except in cases where it is narrated that there is an exception, such as in Fajr prayer on Friday, when Alif-Laam-Meem Tanzeel (Soorat al-Sajdah) is recited in the first rak’ah and Hal ata (Soorat al-Insaan) in the second, and the Eid prayers when Soorat Qaaf and Soorat al-Qamar may be recited.
If he recites them in a different order and recites one surah then recites a surah that comes before it, or he recites a surah that does not come straight after it, that is permissible, even if he is not doing what is best. As for reciting a surah from the end to the beginning, there is no dispute that this is not allowed and is blameworthy, because it is a distortion that detracts from the linguistic miracle of the Quran and goes against the wisdom behind the order in which the verses appear.”
Benefits of reading the Quran.
There are many benefits of reading the Quran and virtues to the one who reads the holy Quran, here are some of the benefits from hadiths:
The prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:
“The one who is proficient in the recitation of the Qur’an will be with the honorable and obedient scribes (angels) and he who recites the Qur’an and finds it difficult to recite, doing his best to recite it in the best way possible, will have two rewards.” (Bukhari)
The prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said:
“Whoever recites a letter from the Book of Allah, will be credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a ten-fold reward. I do not say that Alif-Lam-Mim is one letter, but Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter and Mim is a letter. (Sunan At-Tirmidhi)”
The prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said:
“Fasting and the Qur’an will intercede for a person on the Day of Resurrection. Fasting will say, ‘O Lord, I deprived him of food and desires during the day, so let me intercede for him.’ The Qur’an will say, ‘O Lord, I deprived him of his sleep at night, so let me intercede for him.’ Then they will both intercede for him.” [Narrated by Ahmad, al-Tabaraani and al-Haakim]
The prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) also said:
“It will be said to the companion of the Qur’an: Recite and rise in status, recite as you used to recite in the world, for your status will be at the last verse that you recite.”
