Regarding reciting quran and gifting it to imam..What are the benefits..can we come closer to imam this way..sometimes i think why will imam need it

The Imam does not need this from us but it is a gesture towards him that shows our love for him. We give our family and close friends gifts on the holidays to show our love to them but we forget our Imam (as). We should strive to do things and gift them to him to show our loyalty, love and appreciation for him.
