Yearning for recitation of the Holy Quran

Reciting and teaching the Holy Quran, listening and making others listen to the Holy Quran are the acts of reward. One who recites even one letter of the Holy Quran gets the reward equal to ten virtues. (Sunan-ut-Tirmizi, vol. 4, pp. 417, Hadees 2919)

Dear Islamic brothers! In order to recite the Holy Quran a lot and attain its yearning and passion let’s listen to the routine of some blessed saints رَحِمَهُمُ اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰی about reciting the Holy Quran.

Pious person who would recite Holy Quran twice daily

Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Bin ‘Ayyash [عَیَّاش] رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه would recite the Holy Quran twice daily – once in the day and once in the night for 60 years in his room upstairs. (Sift-us-Safwah, Juz: 3, vol. 2, pp. 109)

Sayyiduna ‘Umar Bin Hussain Jumahi [جُمَحِی] رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه would also recite the Holy Quran once during the day and once during the night, even at the time of agony of death he رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه was reciting the following blessed Ayah:

لِمِثْلِ هٰذَا فَلْیَعْمَلِ الْعٰمِلُوْنَ(۶۱)

For this kind of success, doers should work.

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 23, Surah As-Saffaat, Ayah 61)

(Tahzeeb-ut-Tahzeeb, vol. 6, pp. 39; summarised)

Would recite Holy Quran completely once daily

Sayyiduna Rabi’ رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has said that Sayyiduna Imam Shaafi’i رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه would recite the Holy Quran completely once daily in the night. (Tareekh Baghdad, vol. 2, pp. 61)

Would recite Holy Quran completely in three days

Sayyiduna Bashar Bin Mansoor رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه would recite Holy Quran once completely every third day. (Aa’eenah-e-‘Ibrat, pp. 115; summarised)

Recited Holy Quran completely in seven days

Sayyiduna Imam Ahmad Bin Hanbal رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه would recite daily one Manzil of the Holy Quran in the night and in this way he رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه would complete one Quran in seven days. (Hilya-tul-Awliya, vol. 9, pp. 192, Raqm 13658)

اَلْحَمْدُلِلّٰە! Such blessings can also be seen in the Madani environment of Dawat-e-Islami. Mufti Hafiz Muhammad Farooq Attari Madani رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه, Mufti of Dawat-e-Islami and late member of Shura, would also recite the Holy Quran a lot. Once when someone asked, he said: اَلْحَمْدُلِلّٰە, I recite one Manzil daily. In this way, he would also complete one Quran in seven days. (Mufti-e-Dawat-e-Islami, pp. 14; summarised)

Would recite Holy Quran completely 62 times in blessed Ramadan

When the blessed month of Ramadan would come, pious predecessors would recite the Holy Quran more besides performing other acts of worship as Sayyiduna Imam Abu Yusuf رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه said: Imam-e-A’zam Abu Hanifah رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه would recite the Holy Quran completely 62 times in blessed Ramadan along with Eid-ul-Fitr (once during the day, once during the night, once in Taraweeh throughout the blessed month of Ramadan and once on the Eid day). (Al-Khayrat-ul-Hisaan, pp. 50)

Would recite Holy Quran completely 60 times in Nafls of blessed month of Ramadan

Sayyiduna Imam Shaafi’i رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه, the leader of millions of Shaafi’is, would also recite the Holy Quran completely 60 times in the form of Nafls in the blessed month of Ramadan. (Ihya-ul-‘Uloom, vol. 1, pp. 44)

Dear Islamic brothers! Acting upon the blessed life of blessed saints we should also get into the routine of reciting the Holy Quran. In order to form its habit, we should act strongly upon a Madani In’aam out of Madani In’amaat given to us by Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَتْ بَرَكَاتُـهُمُ الْعَالِيَـه: ‘Have you been privileged to recite or listen to at least three Ayahs (with translation and commentary) from Kanz-ul-Iman?’ By virtue of its blessing, you will continue to make your mind to recite the Holy Quran, اِنْ شَـآءَ اللّٰە.

May Allah Almighty also enable us to recite the Holy Quran abundantly!

اٰمِيۡن   بِجَاهِ   النَّبِيِّ  الۡاَمِيۡن   صَلَّى  اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى  عَلَيۡهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم

Her rauz mayn Quran perhoon kash Khudaya

Allah! Tilawat mayn mayray dil ko laga day
