Ibn Taimiyyah: A Better Way to Divide Recitation of the Qur’ān over a Month

August 27, 2016

Ibn Taimiyyah, may Allāh have mercy on him, described a 29 day schedule for completing recitation of the Qur’ān closer to the way the Companions did that.

He said: “…Division by complete surahs takes precedence over division by parts [based on letter count].” (412)

And from the great advantages of division by complete surahs, he mentioned (414):

· Reciting speech whose parts are connected, one part with another;
· Beginning [one’s daily recitation] with that which Allāh began a surah with;
· Finishing with that which He finished with;
· Completing what was intended [to be completed] from every surah.

The chart in Arabic below [checked but not produced by me], shows Ibn Taimiyyah’s recommended schedule for a 29 day completion.
