*THE MINIMUM DOSE OF QUR-AAN HIZB.*

حدثنا أبو نعيم حدثنا زكرياء عن فراس عن عامر الشعبي عن مسروق عن عائشة رضي الله عنها فسألتها فقالت أسر إلي إن جبريل كان يعارضني القرآن كل سنة مرة وإنه عارضني العام مرتين ولا أراه إلا حضر أجلي وإنك أول أهل بيتي لحاقا بي فبكيت فقال أما ترضين أن تكوني سيدة نساء أهل الجنة أو نساء المؤمنين فضحكت لذلك
بخاري
Reported in Bukhari that on the day of the demise of Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam, Hazrat Fatimah r.a. came to the bed of the prophet SAW. The prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam welcomed her and made her sit by him on the bed. The beloved prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam whispered to her ears: Normally Hazrat Jibra-eel r.a. made me read one whole Qur-aan every Ramadhaan, but this last Ramadhaan, he made me read 2 whole Qur-aan. So I believe that I will depart from this world and you will be the first to meet me from my family. On hearing the depart of the her father, Hazrat Fatimah cried profusely. Then the beloved prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam gave her glad tidings that she will be the First Lady of all women of Jannah.

From this hadith, some fuqahas have derived that it is minimum right/haq of Qur-aan upon us that we should at least finish 2 Qur-aan reading during the year. Although the sunnah prescription is a para(1/30th) a day. But due to weakness of the ummah, we need to talk about the least and the minimum prescription. To finish 2 Qur-aan khatme during a year, one need to read at least 5 pages of Qur-aan daily(basing on common 13 lines Qur-aan). Or else take the number of pages and divide it by 180 days.

*So read at least 5 pages daily.*

From the above and other ahadiths, we find the proof that when a pious muslim dies, then he does meet his family members that passed away in piety.

وقد روى الحسن بن زياد عن أبي حنيفة أنه قال: من قرأ القرآن في كل سنة مرتين فقد أدى حقه، لأن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم عرض على جبريل في السنة التي قبض فيها مرتين
الاتقان
Itqaan-Suyuti

Note that Qur-aan is a part and parcel of food nourishment during the journey of our life. Ahadiths describe the Qur-aan reading as a light and Nur during this life journey. In fact, the beloved prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam described Qur-aan reading as a travel journey whereby one would continue where one stopped during the journey. The objective of Qur-aan reading journey is to finish the Qur-aan. But once this is achieved, the prophet recommended that we re-start the journey of another khatme. This is the great activity of the a muslim`s life journey.

عَنْ قَتَادَةَ عَنْ زُرَارَةَ بْنِ أَوْفَى عَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ قَالَ
قَالَ رَجُلٌ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَيُّ الْعَمَلِ أَحَبُّ إِلَى اللَّهِ قَالَ الْحَالُّ الْمُرْتَحِلُ قَالَ وَمَا الْحَالُّ الْمُرْتَحِلُ قَالَ الَّذِي يَضْرِبُ مِنْ أَوَّلِ الْقُرْآنِ إِلَى آخِرِهِ كُلَّمَا حَلَّ ارْتَحَلَ
ترمذي
Reported in Tirmizi that Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said that the best action is the one who start reading Qur-aan to finish it. When he has finished it, then re start the journey of reading again. Wherever he stops, he later on continues.

When finishing the Qur-aan reading, it is sunnah to read the last Surah and then read Surah Fatihah and then Alif laam meem until muflihoun. Then make dua because duas are accepted that time. 

Al Itqaan fi `uloomul qur-aan – Suyuti:

وأخرج الدارمي بسند حسن عن ابن عباس عن أبيّ بن كعب أ النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم كان إذا قرأ قل أعوذ برب الناس افتتح من الحمد ثم قرأ من البقرة إلى وأولئك هم المفلحون، ثم دعا بدعاء الختمة ثم قام
الاتقان
النشر في قرائت العشر
An Nashar Fi Qira-atil Ashr
And remember that the best action is the one that is done constantly according to one`s free time and health. Even if this action is considered little. So reading little but daily is better than reading lot and then leave out afterwards.

عَنْ الْأَعْمَشِ عَنْ أَبِي صَالِحٍ قَالَ
سُئِلَتْ عَائِشَةُ وَأُمُّ سَلَمَةَ أَيُّ الْعَمَلِ كَانَ أَحَبَّ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَتَا مَا دِيمَ عَلَيْهِ وَإِنْ قَلَّ
ترمذي
Both Hazrat Aisha r.a. and Umme Salma r.a. said that the action that the beloved prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam liked the most is the one that is done daily, even if it was little.(Tirmizi)

This is no targheeb to diminish our actions. Rather start on a small dose, then increase it to your capacity such that you will Insha Allah definitely do it daily. So choose a hizb of Qur-aan that suit you. And the minimum will be 1/180th of your Qur-aan-6 months one khatme. For the common 13 lines Qur-aan, it is 5 page daily. Then only we could complete 2 khatmes yearly. The minimum dose of Qur-aan.
But if you cannot manage that also, then read one page daily. But do it daily. 

And try to read a minimum of 10 ayats in tahajjud salaah daily. Tahajjud time start after sunnah of esha and ends at sehri time. Best is the hour before sehri. 

May Allah Ta`ala bless my ustaad, hazrat Mowlana Qari Ayoob Ishaaq sahab damat barakatuhu, the one who inculcated the love for Qur-aan Kareem in us. May Allah Ta`ala bless him and his family with health, wealth and long life. Ameen.
