… شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ
“The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people…” [Qur’an – 2:185]
As the Blessed Month of Ramadan is now upon us, there is no greater time to strengthen and solidify our relationship with the Qur’an. This includes both reciting the Arabic, and pondering over the deeper meanings of the words. In doing so, not only will we nourish our souls a take benefit from its message, but we shall also receive the great rewards and virtues that come with reciting the Book of Allah (swt).
For some of us who perhaps have not had such a strong relationship with the Qur’an all year round, it may seem too ambitious to set a goal of reciting the entire Qur’an during the Blessed Month. Perhaps our recitation requires practice, or we may have become a little ‘rusty’. We should not be let down by this however, and should aim to recite as much Qur’an as we can each day in Ramadan, be it just one verse, one Juz’ / Separah or more. Whatever we can manage according to our own ability will surely be rewarded greatly by Allah (swt).
In this short video, Shaykh Amer Jamil shares with us how we can better connect with the Qur’an in Ramadan.
A guide for completing the Qur’an in Ramadan
For those who have set the noble goal of completing the entire Qur’an during Ramadan, it’s worth breaking this goal down into smaller manageable chunks throughout the month. By diving your set daily amount into small portions and dedicating a time slot for each, you will find yourself being able to maintian your goal even with a busy lifestyle.
An example of this would be to recite a set number of pages after each of the 5 daily prayers. Below is a simple guide on how many pages you should recite after each Salah in order to complete entire Qur’an in Ramadan.
(Note: The ‘type of Mushaf’ guideline refers to which copy of the Qur’an you are using. The Arabic font size and style used in your copy of the Qur’an will affect how many lines / words can fit onto one page.)
