Dua before reciting the Holy Qur'an .It has been narrated that Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (a.s) used to say the following supplication before he would start reciting the Holy Qur'an

اللّهُمّ إِنّي أَشْهَدُ أَنّ هذَا كِتَابُكَ المُنْزَلُ مِنْ عِنْدِكَ
allahumma inni ashhadu ann hadha kitabuka almunzalu min `indika
O Allah: I testify that this is the Book revealed by You
عَلَى رَسُولِكَ مُحَمّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِاللّهِ صَلَّى اللّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ،
`ala rasulika muhammadi bni `abdillahi salla allahu `alayhi wa alihi
on Your Messenger Muhammad ibn `Abdullah, blessings of Allah be on him and on his Household;
وَكَلامُكَ النَّاطِقُ عَلَى لِسَانِ نَبِيّكَ
wa kalamuka alnnatiqu `ala lisani nabiyyika
(these are) Your Words, Your Prophet gave tongue to,
جَعَلْتَهُ هَادِياً مِنْكَ إِلَى خَلْقِكَ،
ja`altahu hadiyan minka ila khalqika
(whom) You appointed as a Guide for the people,
وَحَبْلاً مُتّصِلاً فِيمَا بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَ عِبَادِكَ.
wa hablan muttsilan fima baynaka wa bayna `ibadika
and a connected link between You and Your servants.
اللّهُمّ إِنّي نَشَرْتُ عَهْدَكَ وَكِتَابَكَ،
allahumma inni nashartu `ahdaka wa kitabaka
O Allah: I am opening Your testament and Your Book.
اللّهُمّ فَاجْعَلْ نَظَرِي فِيهِ عِبَادَةً،
allahumma faj`al nazary fihi `ibadatan
O Allah: decide my looking in it to be a kind of worship
وَقِرَاءَتِي فِيهِ فِكْراً،
wa qira‘aty fihi fikran
And my reciting in it to be ponderation
وَفِكْرِي فِيهِ اعْتِبَاراً،
wa fikry fihi a`tibaran
And my ponderation over it to be learning lessons from it.
وَاجْعَلْنِي مِمّنْ اتّعَظَ بِبَيَانِ مَوَاعِظِكَ فِيهِ،
waj`alny mimmn att`aza bibayani mawa`izika fihi
And include me with those who take lessons from the elucidation of Your preaches therein
وَاجْتَنَبَ مَعَاصِيَكَ،
wajtanaba ma`asiyaka
And those who accordingly avoid doing acts of disobedience to You.
وَلا تَطْبَعْ عِنْدَ قِرَاءَتِي عَلَى سَمْعِي،
wa la tatba` `inda qira‘aty `ala sam`i
And do not seal on my hearing while I am reciting it.
وَلا تَجْعَلْ عَلَى بَصَرِي غِشَاوَةً،
wa la taj`al `ala basary ghishawatan
And do not place covering on my sight,
وَلا تَجْعَلْ قِرَاءَتِي قِرَاءَةً لا تَدَبّرَ فِيهَا،
wa la taj`al qira‘aty qira‘atan la tadabbara fiha
And do not decide my reciting to be thoughtless;
بَلِ اجْعَلْنِي أَتَدَبّرُ آيَاتِهِ وَأَحْكَامَهُ،
bali aj`alny atadabbru ayatihi wa ahkamahu
Rather, (please) make me ponder over its verses and laws,
آخِذاً بِشَرَايِعِ دِينِكَ،
akhidhan bisharayi`i dinika
Learning the laws of my religion.
وَلا تَجْعَلْ نَظَرِي فِيهِ غَفْلَةً،
wa la taj`al nazary fihi ghaflatan
And do not decide my looking in it to be inadvertence,
وَلا قِرَاءَتِي هَذَراً،
wa la qira‘aty hadharan
And do not make my reciting be worthless,
إِنّكَ أَنْتَ الرّؤُوفُ الرّحِيمُ.
innaka anta alrra´ufu alrrahimu
You are verily the All-kind, the All-merciful.

Dua after reciting the Holy Qur'an .Imam al-Sadiq (a.s) used to say the following supplication

اللّهُمّ  إِنّي قَدْ قَرَأْتُ مَا قَضَيْتَ مِنْ كِتَابِكَ
allahumma inni qad qara’tu ma qadayta min kitabika
O Allah: I have recited that which You command in Your Book
الّذِي أَنْزَلْتَهُ عَلَى نَبِيّكَ الصَّادِقِ
alladhy anzaltahu `ala nabiyyIka alssadiqi
That You revealed to Your Prophet—the truthful,
صَلَّى اللّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ،
salla allahu `alayhi wa alihi
Peace of Allah be upon him and his Household.
فَلَكَ الحَمْدُ رَبّنَا.
falaka alhamdu rabbana
So, all praise be to You, our Lord.
اللّهُمّ اجْعَلْنِي مِمّنْ يُحِلّ حَلالَهُ،
allahumma aj`alny mimmn yuhillu halalahu
O Allah: (please do) make me of those who do only what is deemed legal therein
وَيُحَرّمُ حَرَامَهُ،
wa yuharrimu haramahu
And avoid that which is deemed unlawful therein
وَيُؤْمِنُ بِمُحْكَمِهِ وَمُتَشَابِهِهِ،
wa yu´minu bimuhkamihi wa mutashabihihi
And believe in its decisive and allegorical verses.
وَاجْعَلْهُ لِي أُنْساً فِي قَبْرِي،
waj`alhu li ’unsan fi qabri
And (please) decide it to be entertainment for me in my grave,
وَأُنْساً فِي حَشْرِي،
wa ’unsan fi hashri
And entertainment when I will be resurrected.
وَاجْعَلْنِي مِمّنْ تُرَقّيهِ  بِكُلّ آيَةٍ قَرَأَهَا دَرَجَةً فِي أَعْلَى عِلّيّينَ،
waj`alny mimman turaqqihi bikulli aiyatin qara-aha darajatan fi a`la `illiyyina
And (please) include me with those whom You raise a rank to the most elevated position with each verse that they recite.
آمِينَ رَبّ العَالَمِينَ.
amina rabba al`alamina
Respond; O the Lord of the worlds.
