Is it Obligatory to Complete the Quran in Ramadan?

From Sunnipath

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani, SunniPath Academy Teacher

I was wondering, is it compulsory for every Muslim to complete the Qur’an at least once in the month of Ramadhan? The reason I ask this is because sometimes it is extremely difficult (for some people) to complete the Qur’an due to being extremely busy, and we wouldn’t want to miss out on the obligatory.

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

It is highly recommended, but not obligatory, for those able to complete the Qur’an in Ramadan to do so.

If difficult for one:

a) one should strive to read as much as one can in an effective and moving manner (such that one reads with reflection);

b) one should try to listen to as much Qur’an as one can, while maintaining at least minimum attentiveness to the recitation. There is great merit, reward, and benefit in listening to the Qur’an.

And Allah alone gives success.

Wassalam,

Faraz Rabbani
