I've been thinking about creating an online team for reading the al-Quran this Ramadhan. Any reader who wishes to take part, especially those who are alone overseas or living alone, do be free to register yourself, hehehee.

It's very easy. Just state which surah you think you'd like to read in detail and study this Ramadhan. I dare not term it as Tadarus al-Quran as there won't be anybody physically listening, correcting the readings and continuing where the other stops, and then only after understanding all the verses read earlier . Besides I understand that actual Tadarus al-Quran needs one to be perfectly good at reading the al-Quran with correct tajwid, etc.

This project just requires one to read aloud the verses in the al-Quran on your own, understand the meaning of the verses and 'amal' them. In other words, really study the Quran especially the surahs we register ourselves for here.
It's just a way to discipline ourselves actually. It'd be good to know that you're not alone in reading the al-Quran this year, wherever you might be. By committing ourselves to read certain surahs, we might actually be able to encourage one another to complete reading the al-Quran this Ramadhan, insyaAllah. Allah knows best.

Al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said, commenting on how often the Qur’aan should be completed:
The best view is that that varies from one person to another. The one who is seeking to understand it and ponder its meaning should limit himself to as much as he can understand fully when he reads, and the one who is busy spreading knowledge or other religious works, or working for the public interests of the Muslims, should limit himself to what will not cause him to neglect his work.
If he is not among the categories mentioned here, then he should do as much as he can without reaching the point of boredom. End quote. Al-Tibyaan (p. 76)

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked: Is it obligatory for the fasting person to complete the Qur’aan in Ramadaan?
He replied:
Completing the Qur’aan in Ramadaan is not obligatory for the fasting person, but he should read the Qur’aan a great deal in Ramadaan, as that is the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to review it with Jibreel every Ramadaan.

Let me be the first to start.
As I'm still quite new to the al-Quran and not very good at reading it yet (uhuk3), I'm volunteering for surah al-Balad 90 until surah an-Nas 114. I'm also referring to Sayyid Qutb's "in the Shade of the Quran" for a deeper understanding.

Anyone wanna join us?
Aliya : surah Al-Balad - surah An-Nas
MS : surah Al-Mulk
Norlela Zubir: surah An-Nahl


  1. Assalammualaikum
    Sis Aliya,
    Semoga Allah memberi kita kesihatan tubuh badan bagi menempurnakan amalan-amalan di dalam bulan Ramadhan ini. Saya pilih Surah Al-Mulk. Saya selalu juga membaca Surah ini pada hari Jumaat tapi tidak menghayati maknanya. Terima kasih Sis Aliya.

  2. Waalaikumussalam MS,
    Alhamdulillah. Surah Al-Mulk dipilih MS. Selamat berpuasa dan semoga segala amal kita pada bulan yang mulia ini diterimaNya.

  3. Assalamualaikum.

    Selamat Berpuasa. Idea ini sangat bagus. Saya pilih surah ke 16, An-Nahlu (Lebah).


  4. Waalaikumussalam Norlela,
    Terima kasih. Semoga Ramadhan ini membantu kita menjadi Muslim yang lebih baik, lebih tabah dan lebih berilmu, insyaAllah.
