5 Tips to Complete a Reading of the Entire Qur’an this Ramadhan

Chat with any Muslim and ask them if they read the Qur'an as much as they’d like to, and the answer is likely to be no. There’s an ancient, Thai people famous for their kickboxing, who say “If you want to be a good kicker… Kick!” Follow the first ever advice given to the Prophet (Peace & Blessings Be Upon Him) ‘Iqra’ which means ‘Recite’. Keep repeating this action so it turns into a habit. Nothing can replace this discipline! 

Below are a few key takeaways to help you answer the above question in the affirmative.


1. Divvy it up into mini portions.

The Holy book has approximately 600 pages. If you divide it by 30 days,

it’s 20 pages a day.

But if you divide it by the 5 daily prayers,

It comes down to ONLY 4 pages!



2. Being Overwhelmed is a Complete NO-NO!

For some, as much as they aspire to complete the recitation of the Qur’an during Ramadan, the number of pages, or the length of it overwhelms them. Remove the ‘I cant’ from your brain and crush those negative thoughts!


YOU CAN finish the Qur’an! But if you focus on understanding it rather than only reading it, then this will increase you in your knowledge.


3. Aim to Establish a Connection

The rewards of reciting Qur’an in Ramadan are significant, but care must also be taken to learn what you’re reciting. Connect with a story in the Qur’an that’s the most inspiring to you and absorb it. After all, Quality > Quantity


The blessings of reading Qur'an in Ramadan are critical, yet care should be taken to realize what you’re reciting. Reflect on a segment that is the most motivating to you, memorize it, then apply it. Attention must be given to the proper pronunciation of the words. If read incorrectly, it could alter the meaning!


4. Plan ahead

Draw up a realistic plan around your schedule for how you can complete the Qur’an within a month by dividing it up per day. Sketch out a personal plan and evaluate it constantly, then put it into action! Be realistic with objectives so you don’t let yourself down.


5. Seize the moment

One of the best times to recite the Qur’an, is after Suhoor. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) asked Allah to bless our Ummah in the early hours, and you will also be more likely to memorize ayahs at this time.

Another option is to take the time between Maghrib and Esha by using this time productively instead of over-eating every Iftar.
