After Ramadhan, i tried reading at least one page to two pages a day. It goes well for a week but getting weaker now and then.
Now for two weeks i had a bad cold and stubborn cough. Didnt read for long time which leaves me lazy.

I read Quran, but not every day :(, and I hate “because of school” excuse.
It feels irresponsible not to worship the Quran by reading it and understanding all the knowledge inside of it. 4 years ago
its just easy to read Quran everyday with buying Quran in small size which divde ecah chapter “Jozo’a” alone. That makes it easy to take with you when you to pray, waiting for someone, in taxi or bus. =)
I am using this way and it helped me alot, try it =) 5 years ago
This is probably the best step I have ever taken in my life. May ALLAH now help me follow the Quraan. 6 years ago
Alhamdulillah….. I was able to finish the meaning of the Quraan atleast once. Now I have started again to point out differennt commands and the ‘does and donts’ that ALLAH revealed to us.
That way I can lead my life according to Quraan. I have also started to learn how to read Quraan in the perfect way…. but thats another goal.
This is one of those never ending goals… but I will close this one for now as I am, by the mercy of ALLAH, reading the Quraan regularly. If I ever find discontinuity in my reading and following the Quraan, I will re open this goal. 6 years ago
By the favor of ALLAH, I have received a Bangla translation from a friend of mine and started to read it. I used to read Arabic since my childhood…. but now I am knowing the messages the ALLAH (SWT) sent to us. I am trying utmost to read the book upto the end atleast once. May ALLAH accept us who are in His path. 6 years ago
The Quran continues to be the source of peace, happiness, hope, enlightenment to me and serves as ‘a rope to hold on to’ in the stormy weather of life.
Reading the Quran renegergises my faith, brings me nearer to Allah and keeps me on the path…

i have been able to read more consistently but not as consistently as i would like. right now i am trying to memorize surah kafiroon. alhamdulillah, i have found a sister who is willing to help me learn qur’an! i’m really excited. 6 years ago
I pray to the creator of this universe to guide me to the right path. My mind is prone to go astray. My thoughts are not perfect. I need help from the Lord in differentiating between right and wrong and in zeroing in on the right path. 6 years ago
those people who understand Bangla, there is a very useful online translation of the holy Qurran.
The source of the first one is the “Al Quraanul Karim” – Published and freely distributed by King Fahd Bin Abdul Aziz, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In Bengali, this one is very readable.
The second one is the exact word-to-word translation of the holy Quraan. According to them, “No new words introduced inside the translation to elaborate a point, to justify a given opinion or for the sake of English writing.”
ALLAH, help us understand your book and follow your ordained path. 6 years ago
My goal is to complete the Qur’an this Ramadan. I have already started tp spend more time with the Holy Book but now I plan to read one juz (or section) per day. 6 years ago
My native language is not Arabic….. so when I recite the Qurran…. I feel extremely great but dont understand what is said….
I will look for a translated copy or a website where I can understand the meaning of each sentences of the Qurran, the book not written by any human being. 6 years ago
Someone who is familiar with the Bible might expect the Quran to be similar, but will be surprised to find that it is not. It is not a narrative or a collection of rules or a hymnal or a science book, yet it contains elements of all these things and more.
The Quran speaks of the nature of Allah, man’s relationship with Allah, and man’s relationship with others. The Quran has a unique style that moves from one topic to another, interweaving various themes, moving from the specific to the general and back again. For this reason, calling the surahs “chapters” is really a misnomer, for a chapter deals with one theme. The word “surah” is unique to the Quran.
The Quran contains, among other things, glimpses of the stories of previous prophets but, with the exception of Prophet Yusuf (Joseph), does not tell each story in one unbroken narrative. Rather, in various places it relates certain details and asks us to reflect on their significance.
The verses revealed in Makkah during the first 13 years of the Prophet’s mission generally deal with the articles of faith — the Oneness and Uniqueness of Allah, the Day of Judgment, the Angels, Prophets, previous Books, and Divine Decree. The verses revealed in Madinah, where the Muslims had established a nascent Islamic society, generally deal with social relationships between individuals and groups. Often just a few verses came down at a time to deal with a question or situation that had arisen in the Muslim community. Therefore, the study of the “reasons for revelation” — the background of when, where and why a particular verse was revealed — is integral to scholars’ understanding of the Quran.
The Quran remains the most widely read book in the world. All Muslims memorize some parts of it to recite in their ritual prayers daily. Many others devote a part of each day to reading the Quran, and even more so during the month of Ramadan. Further, there are still hundreds of thousands — both Arab and non-Arab — who memorize the entire Quran. My objective is to read one hizb a day.
Dear friends, I invite you all to listen to a recitation of the Quran and read a translation of its meaning. If you are interested and don’t know where to start, please contact me. 7 years ago
The Quran is the Book of Allah (God) that was revealed in Arabic to the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) over a period of twenty-three years. He dictated it to his followers as he received it from the Angel Jibril (Gabriel), and they wrote it down on whatever materials were available. The Prophet and many of his followers memorized it as it was revealed.
The Quran consists of 114 surahs (sometimes called chapters) of various lengths, from 3 to 286 verses. The verses were revealed a few at a time and not in their present order but were placed in their position by the Prophet in accordance to instructions from the Angel Jibril.
Shortly after the death of the Prophet, the first caliph, Abu Bakr As-Siddiq, ordered the scribe Zayd ibn Thabit to collect the manuscripts and make one copy of the Quran. He did so with the assistance of the hundreds of Companions of the Prophet who had memorized the Quran, thus assuring that nothing was added or omitted, and that the order of the verses was according to the Prophet’s instructions. Later, the third caliph, ‘Uthman ibn ‘Affan, again asked Zayd to oversee the copying of the Quran. Several standard copies were made and sent to all the provinces of the Muslims, with orders that all other manuscripts be burned. This was to ensure that there would not be various readings of the Quran.
Thus, the Quran remains today exactly as it was revealed more than 14 centuries ago and contains the exact Words of Allah. Many thousands of Muslims memorized it each generation so that it was never forgotten. Further, the Arabic language in which the Quran was revealed remains a living language. There are copies of the Quran from the first century after the revelation in libraries in the Muslim world. A comparison to modern printed copies shows that the Quran has not changed over the centuries.
Only the Arabic text is the authentic Word of Allah. Translations of the meaning of the Quran have been made in many languages, but no translation can capture the full meaning of the Quran. Therefore, to properly understand the teachings of Islam, one must refer to and understand the Arabic text of the Quran. 7 years ago
