    Wa Alaykum Assalaam, good to see you sister. Hope all is well with you, I still browse the forum, just haven't posted as much. I'll try to be more active though in sha Allah.

TBH that wouldn't last too long & eventually I am reading weekly if not monthly.

    But there is so many other things I would like to continue but its better to have one goal instead of multiple. I want to continue intermittent fasting after Ramadan, in the diet sense. I have tried it in past and failed. But also Islamic fast middle of month. I made that goal in past but didn't last.
    Maybe try with other family members
    also cater around it by adjusting time table and social or work activites

    in regards to quran remember each letter is getting you 10 rewards in sha Allah and on the day of judgement this quran may possibly intercede for you and be the reason you dont go hell

    There are people who literally made the quran their companion

    when in solitary confinement whilst everyone went insane they connected to the quran and stayed sane
    whilst in jail they became hufaadh

    some people from the salaf would recite the entire quran once a day or every 3 days

    imam shafiee in ramadan would recite the entire quran twice a day everyday

    of course this maybe way above us but we can atleast try finish the quran once a month
    whether its 6 pages each salah or 20 mins every couple of hours or two 30 min sessions its possible
    and even if you cant achieve that then recite what you can but keep it consistent after ramadan
    ulama say you know a deed has been accepted by Allah if youve kept it consistent

    the reason we arent able to read quran all the time is due to our sins
    beneficial reminder

    Ramadan is flying by and I feel like I am on survival mode instead of thriving. But reading quran is one of those goals I hope to keep after Ramadan. I am good about reading during this month but not much after. So I hope I can improve this.

    I noticed its easier to break down amounts of quran than doing it all in one go

    if its broken down you can keep it consistent after ramadan

    we arent ramadan muslims we should be trying to improve and stay upon that

    when it comes to quran i read 20 to 30 mins and then later on in the day again 20 to 30cmins that way i finish a juz and in sha Allah I will try to keep quran consistent if im not doing a juz everyday atleast a third or half that way can be completing quran a number of times a year

    also translation is important if u dont know arabic
    We need to know what Allah is telling us so aim to read abit of translatiom everyday so u finish quran A to Z saheeh international is best in my opinion

    also read tafsir so u know the story behind the revelation the explanation etc
    Tafsir sa adi is good and is in english

    tafsir ibn kathir is also good but more hadith based
