8 Steps to Recite the Entire Qur’an This Ramadan

STEP 6: Seize the moment

A deeply inspiring story in ‘lessons from the waiting room’ – where a mother; who has taken her unwell child to the hospital; waits for the doctor to see to her child.

She notices a young Muslim who uses his time in the waiting room, in a most effective and spiritually rewarding way, reciting from a pocket-sized Quran.

Lesson to be taken here: Invest in a pocket-sized Qur’an and make it your best friend this Ramadan. Seize every opportunity and moment to be with Allah (glorified and exalted be He) through your recitation.

One of the best times at which to recite Qur’an, is after Suhur (pre- dawn meal). Having partaken from the Sunnah meal, and within an hour or two still to go before work or school, this is the ideal jump start to your day.

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) asked Allah (glorified and exalted be He) to bless our Ummah in the early hours, and you will also be more likely to memorize ayahs at this time.

Research shows that morning study creates better performance in students so don’t miss the morning recitation!

Time Tip: Salah Followed by Qur’an.

Consider the following option that has worked well for numerous people in past Ramadan’s. Try reciting 6 – 8 pages of Qur’an (depending on the copy of the Qur’an that you are using) after each of your 5 daily salah.

Add Qiyaamul-Layl (night vigil prayer) as a 6th addition, and you will reach the end of Ramadan, having completed your Qur’an recitation with ease and perhaps, even before the last 5 days of Ramadan so long as you remain committed.

Time Tip: Recite before going to sleep.

Allah (glorified and exalted be He) says:

{Indeed, the hours of the night are more effective for concurrence and more suitable for words} (Al-Muzzammil 73: 6).

Reciting during the day is also beneficial, however the night time recitation is easier as well during Ramadan as there are less distractions and noise.

STEP 7: Remain steadfast and consistent

The key to any success is consistency. Once you have mapped your plan, stick to it. Remind yourself of the greatness of this month, of the opportunities that it provides for your spiritual growth and your relationship with the Qur’an. Don’t be willing to compromise it in this month.

STEP 8: Make du`a’ to Allah (glorified and exalted be He)

Nothing can be achieved without the aid and guidance of Allah (glorified and exalted be He). When making your intention to complete your recitation or memorization of Qur’an, supplicate to Allah (glorified and exalted be He) to ease this noble pathway and to crown your efforts with success, inshaAllah.

These are the 8 ways I wanted to share with you on starting and completing your journey through recitation of the Qur’an this Ramadan.

Indeed, Allah (glorified and exalted be He) says in Surah Al-Baqarah: {This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah.} (Al-Baqarah 2:2)

In the hours of the days and nights of this sacred month, may the Qur’an be your companion of light and guidance, resonating through your words, actions and life mission.

May your relationship with the Qur’an be strengthened, enriched and enlivened with the profound wisdom and divine message from Allah (glorified and exalted be He).
