Reading the Quran in 30 days can be a daunting prospect for many people, but it doesn’t have to be. With the right plan and dedication, you can read through the entire Quran in thirty days or less.
Step 1: Prepare Your Mind
Before setting out on your journey of reading the Quran, you must prepare your mind. Take some time for yourself and truly reflect on the significance of this endeavor. Remember that any reward you receive from it is from Allah, so humility and dedication are essential.
Make the intention for Allah s.w.t. to instill sincerity, even before embarking this journey. ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab r.a. reported that the Prophet s.a.w. said,
“Verily, actions are by intentions and every person will attain what they have intended for.”
Step 2: Set a Schedule
Creating a realistic daily schedule is key to completing your goal of reading the Quran in 30 days or less. Break down how many pages you need to read each day, making sure the number isn’t too high or too low for your current level of commitment. It is also useful to give yourself set times when you will read, such as early morning or before bed. This will help keep your mind focused on the task at hand and make it easier to stick with it over time.
Allah s.w.t. mentioned in the Quran:
“Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves”
(Surah ar-Ra’d, 13:11)
Step 3: Get a companion to journey with you
Allah has blessed us with countless bounties and one of them is the Quran. A Muslim is not a Muslim if they do not believe in the Quran. The Quran is the miracle of our prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and Allah has guaranteed paradise for those who complete reading it. Just as it is fard (obligatory) to pray five times a day, it is also fard to read the Quran daily. Even though reading the Quran should be done daily, many struggle to find time to do so. We should make an intention to read it and ask Allah to make it easy for us. Dua is very powerful, Alhumdulilah. Along with making dua, we should also try our best and take baby steps until we build up momentum and are determined to complete reading it within a specified time frame. The feeling of accomplishment will be indescribable, Insha’Allah. Furthermore, we should spend time with those who encourage us to read the Quran and avoid those who are a distraction. When we are around others who are trying to improve themselves, we are more likely to do the same. Also, being around others who have already completed reading the Quran can serve as motivation for us because if they were able to do it, so can we! Finally, we should make special duas at the end of every surah we read asking Allah Almighty to grant us hidayah (guidance), understanding of His deen and make us from among His righteous servants ameen!
In a hadith, Abu Hurayrah r.a. reported that the Prophet s.a.w. said:
“ A man is upon the religion of his best friend, so let one of you look at whom he befriends.”
Step 4: Make Sure You Understand
The Quran is a book that has the potential to change your life. But in order for it to have a lasting impact, it is important to take the time to understand what you are reading. If there is something you don’t understand, research and read more about it until you do. This will help ensure that the Quran has a lasting effect on your life, as opposed to just being something that goes in one ear and out the other. The Quran is not just a book of rules and regulations. It is also a book of guidance and wisdom. By taking the time to understand it, you will be able to apply its teachings to your own life and make better choices. In short, understanding the Quran will help you live a better life.
Step 5: Stay Committed
No matter what life throws your way, stick to your Quran reading schedule! It can be easy to get sidetracked and push off reading for another day, but remember how rewarding it will be to finish the Quran in 30 days or less. Don’t let anything stop you from reaching this incredible goal. Whatever obstacles come up, stay focused and committed to your schedule. The sense of pride and accomplishment you’ll feel when you reach the end will be worth it!
When it comes to Quranic studies, many Muslims find it difficult to stick to a regular schedule. Life gets in the way, with work and family commitments often taking precedence. However, it is important to remember how rewarding it will be to complete the Quran in 30 days or less. The sense of accomplishment will be immense, and you will be proud to have stuck to your schedule no matter what obstacles came up along the way. So keep going, no matter how difficult it may seem at times. The finish line is within reach!
Step 6: Reward Yourself Afterward
Completing the Quran is a momentous achievement deserving of celebration. After spending 30 days focused on reading and understanding the Quran, it’s important to take some time for yourself. A day off from work or school is a great way to relax and reflect on all that you have learned. You could also treat yourself to a special meal, go out with friends, or spend time doing something you enjoy. Whatever you do, make sure to savor this accomplishment and relish in the rewards of your hard work. By taking a break and enjoying some well-deserved rest, you will be recharged and ready to take on whatever challenges come your way.
Step 7: Follow a strategy that works for you
It’s important to find the right strategy that works for you. Everyone reads and comprehends differently, so make sure you find a plan that fits your needs. Make sure it includes a timeline for when you will read, breaks for rest and contemplation, and time set aside for understanding what is being read.
Allah s.w.t. mentioned in the Quran
“ And We have made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another.”
(Surah al-Hujurat, 49:13)
The Qur’an is full of verses that remind us of the beauty of diversity. In Surah Al-Baqarah, Allah s.w.t. says: “O mankind! We have created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know each other.” (verse 49). This verse shows us that there is indeed diversity in Allah’s creation. Certainly Allah s.w.t. has created everyone with their own unique sets of strengths and limitations. And it is through our differences that we learn from one another, from the best practices to lessons from adversities. Let us remember this when we next meet someone who seems different from us. Instead of feeling threatened or scared, let us open our hearts and minds and celebrate the beauty of diversity in all its forms.
