Ramadan: The RACE is ON!

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Alhamdulillah, today is the third day of Ramadan. How is it? happy or tired? I am really hope that we can benefit from every second in this Holy month.

Allah said in the Quran:
“The month of Ramadan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion…” (Qur’an, 2:185)

This verse specifically mentions the name of Ramadan where other name of months in Islam were not mentioned. Allah also describes Ramadan as a month which Quran was revealed earlier than mention that it is a month that people have to fast in a full month. It shows the importance of the Quran which is closely related with the month of Ramadan and both are inseparable.

So, how is your reading of the Quran?

When you read the Quran, it doesn't mean that you have to avoid other reading. We are encouraged to continuously read in order to gain knowledge. Read and keep reading, but please give the priority to the Quran.

I am interested to the technique of how to finish the Quran completely in the month of Ramadan. As proposed by Abu Productive HERE:

The Qur’an has 600 pages approx.. If you divide it on 30 days, that’s 20 pages a day.
You see, that’s difficult to do right? But, if you divide it on the 5 prayers a day, it gets easier:
*If you read 4 pages after every salah in ramadan, then you’ve completed the Qur’an.
*If you want to complete the Qur’an twice, you read 4 pages before and after every salah.

Dont forget to read THIS on how to achieve your Quran goals in Ramadan.

I love to share one famous hadith from Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), he said:

”Whoever fasts Ramadan out of Iman (faith) and seeking Allah’s reward 
then his past and future sins are forgiven." [Riwayat Ahmad]

Let's look our intention. Do we fast because of Allah? Do we fast because we are forced to? Do we fast because we will be rewarded? Fasting or any other types of Ibadah begins with a pure intention, to seek the pleasure of Allah. Because Allah already stated in the Quran: "Whoever seeks the rewards of the Hereafter, we multiply the rewards fro him. And whoever seeks the materials of this world, we give him there from, then he receives no share the Hereafter." [Al-Shura: 42: 20]

Ok guys, lets RACE to seek the pleasure of Allah. Lets RACE towards forgiveness from Allah. Lets RACE to do good deed and avoid bads. Lets RACE to meet the laylatulqadr. Lets RACE to do our best in this Ramadan.

Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "The blessed month has come to you. Allah has made fasting during it obligatory upon you. During it, the gates to Paradise are opened and the gates to hellfire are locked, and the devils are chained. There is a night [during this month] which is better than a thousand months. Whoever is deprived of its good is really deprived [of something great]."
