Reading and understanding Quran is an easy task

Assalam oalaikum,
Allah is all-merciful and benevolent. He has chosen us to be the ashraf-ul- makhluqat or the best of his creations. It is due to his mercy that we have been granted with intellect and reasoning power. Unfortunately, in spite of having so many virtues, many of us prefer to grope in darkness by not remembering our creator. Allah has enlightened us about each and every aspect of this universe, existence of mankind and the life hereafter, in the Holy Quran. Unfortunately, there are many amongst us who do not how to read Quran. Many parents neglect their children and do not teach them Quran. There are some other people who do not know how to read Quran due to paucity of time. Allah says in the Quran:
22 He is Allah, beside Whom La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He) the All-Knower of the unseen and the seen. He is the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
( سورة الحشر , Al-Hashr, Chapter #59, Verse #21)
2 He has taught (you mankind) the Qur'an (by His Mercy).
( سورة الرحمن , Ar-Rahman, Chapter #55, Verse #2)
17 And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember; then is there any one who will remember (or receive admonition)?
( سورة القمر , Al-Qamar, Chapter #54, Verse #17)
29 And (remember) when We sent towards you (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) a group (three to ten persons) of the jinn, (quietly) listening to the Qur'an. When they stood in the presence thereof, they said: "Listen in silence!" And when it was finished, they returned to their people, as warners.
( سورة الأحقاف , Al-Ahqaf, Chapter #46, Verse #29)
58 Certainly, We have made this (Qur'an) easy in your tongue, in order that they may remember.
( سورة الدخان , Ad-Dukhan, Chapter #44, Verse #58)
3 Verily, We have made it a Qur'an in Arabic that you may be able to understand (its meanings and its admonitions).
( سورة الزخرف , Az-Zukhruf, Chapter #43, Verse #3)
And thus We have revealed to you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم) a Qur'an in Arabic that you may warn the Mother of the Towns (Makkah) and all around it, and warn (them) of the Day of Assembling of which there is no doubt: when a party will be in Paradise (those who believed in Allah and followed what Allah's Messenger صلى الله عليه و سلم brought them) and a party in the blazing Fire (Hell) (those who disbelieved in Allah and followed not what Allah's Messenger صلى الله عليه و سلم brought them).
( سورة الشورى , Ash-Shura, Chapter #42, Verse #7)
85 Verily, He Who has given you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) the Qur'an (i.e. ordered you to act on its laws and to preach it to others) will surely bring you back to Ma'ad (place of return, either to Makkah or to Paradise after your death). Say (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم): "My Lord is Aware of him who brings guidance, and of him who is in manifest error."
( سورة القصص , Al-Qasas, Chapter #28, Verse #85)
113 And thus We have sent it down as a Qur'an in Arabic, and have explained therein in detail the warnings, in order that they may fear Allah, or that it may cause them to have a lesson from it (or to have the honour for believing and acting on its teachings).
( سورة طه , Taha, Chapter #20, Verse #113)
106 And (it is) a Qur'an which We have divided (into parts), in order that you might recite it to men at intervals. And We have revealed it by stages (in 23 years).
( سورة الإسراء , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #106)
45 And when you (Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم) recite the Qur'an, We put between you and those who believe not in the Hereafter, an invisible veil (or screen their hearts, so they hear or understand it not).
( سورة الإسراء , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #45)
98 So when you want to recite the Qur'an, seek refuge with Allah from Shaitan (Satan), the outcast (the cursed one).
( سورة النحل , An-Nahl, Chapter #16, Verse #98)
52 This (Qur'an) is a Message for mankind (and a clear proof against them), in order that they may be warned thereby, and that they may know that He is the only One Ilah (God - Allah) - (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah) - and that men of understanding may take heed.
( سورة إبراهيم , Ibrahim, Chapter #14, Verse #52)
2 We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an, in order that ye may learn wisdom.
( سورة يوسف , Yusuf, Chapter #12, Verse #2)
61 In whatever business thou mayest be, and whatever portion thou mayest be reciting from the Qur'an,- and whatever deed ye (mankind) may be doing,- We are witnesses thereof when ye are deeply engrossed therein. Nor is hidden from thy Lord (so much as) the weight of an atom on the earth or in heaven. And not the least and not the greatest of these things but are recorded in a clear record.
( سورة يونس , Yunus, Chapter #10, Verse #61)
204 When the Qur'an is read, listen to it with attention, and hold your peace: that ye may receive Mercy.
( سورة الأعراف , Al-Araf, Chapter #7, Verse #204)
Therefore, reading and understanding Quran is quite easy. Satan tries to dissuade people from reading Quran. He tries to divert their attention from Quran. If a person falls into his trap then he will be deprived of the benefit and happiness we derive from reading Quran. Hence, we should affirm to ourselves that we shall try our best to read and understand the message of Allah, i.e. Quran
