Muslims of the World,
This Ramadan, 1437-2016,
Why Don’t You All Do a Complete
Daily Khatm of Qur’an?
It Is Easy! And It Is Simple!
And Here Is How You Do It!
Jameela Mohammed, Professor Kalamazad Mohammed, Hashim Mohammed, and Dr. Judy Kamalodeen
That is right. One complete Khatm of the Qur’an every day. For all 30 days of the month of this Ramadan. Or 29 days. However the blessed month of Ramadan turns out to be this year.
And here is the complete methodology for doing it. It is simple and it is doable. And it works, Mashallah, like a charm.
All you need is the following:
You need to appoint a man or woman to be in charge of the Ramadan Daily Khatm Project – 1437/2016.
Yes, a woman can be perfectly in charge of this project and she can perfectly coordinate and supervise the men participating in this project. So, don’t get caught in those futile debates and waste your time and energy.
The next thing you need to do is to recruit 30 readers – one per Juz of the Qur’an. The Qur’an has 30 Juz or parts.
You can do with fewer people, if you need to. But then each one of them will have to read more than one Juz per day.
The man or woman in charge then will have to allocate the various Juz to the individuals in the group: one per person.
All members of the group will complete reading the Juz allocated to them, preferably before Taraweeh Salah.
After Taraweeh Salah, one of the members of the group will make the Khatm Du’a.
The following day, each member of the group will automatically move to the next Juz. And complete that next Juz – again, preferably before Taraweeh Salah.
If for some reason someone is not able to complete the reading before Taraweeh Salah, do it after Taraweeh. Or if even that is not possible, do it the following day. But do make sure that you complete all the readings for which you have responsibility.
This way, at the end of the month of Ramadan, each participant will have completed reading the full Qur’an all by themselves.
Also, additionally, the group together would have completed, among themselves, no less than 30 Khatm.
Now, you go and figure out what kind of blessings you all would have raked up:
for yourself as individuals;
for your group as a whole;
for your respective families;
for your communities;
for your towns, villages and cities;
and for your entire societies.
These are just some of the ways in which Allah fills his world and the lives of his slaves with his blessings during his most blessed month of Ramadan.
If Ramadan, as the Qur'an says, is the month in which the Qur'an was sent down, and it is, a question each and every one of us must ask is this:
