Ramadan holds a special place in the hearts of all our Ummah and many Muslims set strict goals and create a Ramadan Quran Reading Schedule to make the most of the month. It is the month when the Quran was revealed to the best of mankind – Prophet Muhammad PBUH.
When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of Jannah are opened, the gates of Jahannam are closed and the devils are chained. Not only do Muslims fast because it is an obligation from Allah SWT, but also to attain Taqwa and focus on the true purpose of being here in this worldly life. In other words, you restrain all the temptations around you and fast for the sake of Allah SWT – our Creator and the One we will all return to when this life ends.
Since Ramadan is upon us, we collected the most frequently asked questions and will be discussing them InshaAllah. We also created an organized Ramadan Quran Reading schedule since many Muslims plan to create a strict and organized daily Quran reading schedule to help them finish reciting it by the end of the blessed month.
In addition to the moral, spiritual, and social benefits of fasting, there are numerous benefits of reading the Quran and learning it in Ramadan, or any other month, as the closest people to Allah are the people of the Quran. Indeed, the best of our Ummah are those who learn the Quran and teach it.
Prophet Muhammad PBUH also said: Fasting and the Quran will intercede on behalf of Allah’s servant on the Day of Judgment: Fasting will say, “O my Lord! I prevented him from food and desires during the day, so accept my intercession for him.” And the Quran will say, “O my Lord! I prevented him from sleeping by night, so accept my intercession for him.” The intercession of both will thus be accepted.
Moreover, reciting the Holy Quran and learning it is really rewarding, no matter what your level is. Prophet Muhammad PBUH also said: “The one who is proficient in the recitation of the Quran will be with the honorable and obedient scribes (angels) and he who recites the Quran and finds it difficult to recite, doing his best to recite it in the best way possible, will have two rewards.”
Since Ramadan is the month of mercy and forgiveness, the benefits and rewards of doing any good deed are significant during it. Hence, all Muslims strive to do as many good deeds as they can and stay away from doing any Haram act that makes Allah SWT displeased. No doubt that the Holy Quran reading and pondering it is one of the most significant acts you can ever do during Ramadan.
Well, it is not an obligation from Allah SWT to finish reading the Quran during Ramadan. But since it is a rewarding activity, just try to set specific goals and challenge yourself to make the most of the Holy month.
So, prepare your heart from now and remind yourself all the time of how significant Ramadan is so as to give it its due rights and respect and stay motivated and encouraged till Ramadan ends Inshallah.
As mentioned before, the answer is: no! Finishing reading Quran in Ramadan is not compulsory but Muslims seize such a special time of the year and try to read as much time as they can besides doing other good actions to gain the pleasure of Allah SWT.
It is a good idea to create a Ramadan Quran reading schedule to stay focused and motivated. Prophet Muhammad PBUH said: “Whoever recites a letter from Allah’s Book, then he receives the reward from it, and the reward of ten the like of it. I do not say that Alif Lam Mim is a letter, but Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter and Mim is a letter.” [Tirmidhi]
