Yes indeed! Looking at the Qur’ān is ibādah and a person is rewarded for worship. It is also narrated from ‘Abd Allāh ibn ‘Abbās (May Allah be pleased with him) that he ﷺ said:
“Looking at the Qur’ān is ibādah.”
[al-Ibānah al-Kubrā Jild 1 page 343]
Apart from this it is mentioned in a hadīth that the Prophet ﷺ said:
“Give your eyes their portion of worship.” It was said: “O Messenger of Allāh ﷺ what is their portion of ibādah?” He ﷺ said: “Looking at the Mushaf, contemplating it and considering it’s marvels.”
