  • Best time to read the Quran?


    When is the best time to read the Quran, and ponder over its meanings? Midnight? Also, when is the best time to memorize certain surahs (e.g As-Sajdah, Al-Mulk, Al-Waqiah)? Like all prophets of Allah S.W.T., how did they manage their time during the day and night?

    Jazakallah khair, for reading my post.

    Re: Best time to read the Quran?

    Best time to recite the Qur'an & to learn or memorize anything would be after Fajr.

    For a student, the brain function time is 100% between 4 a.m to 6 a.m, 50% around 6 a.m to 8 a.m and only 20% at night.

    Shaykh Hussain Abdul Sattar had given a beneficial lecture on the topic "Scheduling According to the Sunnah". If I find it, I'll post it here, InshaAllah.

      Im not sure when memorization is the best but i remember this ayah states that quran at fajr time is witnessed


      A Quran that is “witnessed”

      In the Quran itself, Allah calls the Quran recitation in prayer at the time of Fajr, a recitation that “is witnessed”:

      أَقِمِ الصَّلاَةَ لِدُلُوكِ الشَّمْسِ إِلَى غَسَقِ اللَّيْلِ وَقُرْآنَ الْفَجْرِ إِنَّ قُرْآنَ الْفَجْرِ كَانَ مَشْهُودًا

      “Establish regular prayers – at the sun’s decline till the darkness of the night, and the morning prayer and reading: for the prayer and reading in the morning carry their testimony.” [17:78]

      The question arises: what “testimony” does the “Quran Al-Fajr” (Quran reading/recitation before dawn) carry?

      According to Tafsir Ibn Kathir, the term “Quran Al-Fajr” means the Salah of Al Fajr i.e. the first obligatory prayer of the day.

      It further states, “According to the version recorded in the two sahihs from Abu Hurayrah, the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said: “The angels of the night and the angels of the day come amongst you in successive groups (in shifts). They meet at the morning prayer (Fajr) and at the mid-afternoon prayer (‘Asr). Those who stayed among you at ascend, and their Lord asks them, although He knows best about you, “How did you leave my servants” They say, “We came to them when they were praying and we left them when they were praying.”

      `Abdullah bin Masoud said, “The two guards meet at Salat Al-Fajr, and one group ascends while the other stays where it is.”

      These were the comments of Ibrahim An-Nakha`i, Mujahid, Qatadah and others on the tafsir of this verse.

      End quote Tafsir Ibn Kathir.
