To facilitate this, a table has been included at the end of this book which we can use to encourage and remind ourselves of this manner of pleasing Allah Ta'ala. Either we can tick a day when we reach a specific goal of verses/pages each day, or we can insert a number (to represent verses/pages) if our daily timetables are unpredictable or inconstant. In this manner we can still try to read a fixed number of pages per day
One should try to aim for a Juz (Parah) a day. If one is trying to create a habit and this is too much, start smaller, e.g. a few pages. With the gradual build up of speed and comfort in reading, one will be able to set this or even higher goals.
One should also try and read the Qur'an with a reputable translation at hand so one can reflect upon the meaning of what is recited. This is why the translation has also been included in this publication (and also our other Publications). With this addition we hope that our recitation of the Qur'an will rise above a repetition of unknown words, and progress to giving audience to the Words of Allah Ta'ala, and taking the commands and advices of Allah Ta'ala to heart.
The chapters of the Qur'an presented in this book are those which should be recited daily. If one is not able to recite so much comfortably, then one should start with one or even part of one of these Surahs daily. The specific benefits for reciting each of these chapters are mentioned under their separate headings.
