When asked about his practice during Ramadaan, Shaikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (Rahimahullah) replied,

“Now, it is my habit that once the month of Ramadhaan commences, I read three paras of the Qur’aan Shareef in the Awwaabeen Salaah.

Thereafter, I perform my Esha Salaah with jamaat and then return home to perform my Taraweeh Salaah with my daughters. In the Taraweeh Salaah I read the same three paras that I read in the Awwaabeen Salaah.

After the Taraweeh Salaah, I once again read the same three paras looking inside the Qur’aan Shareef whilst pondering over the meanings of the verses. I keep a few books of tafseer with me and refer to them when necessary.

Thereafter I engage in Tahajjud Salaah and recite the same three paras in Tahajjud until the time of sehri sets in. After partaking of sehri, I proceed to the Musjid for Fajr Salaah and after Fajr, I sleep for about two hours. I then wake up, complete whatever necessities I may have and engage in Chaast Salaah, reciting the same three paras.

Thereafter, I recite the same three paras looking inside the Qur’aan Shareef.

Thereafter I perform four rakaats salaah and recite the same three paras once again.

By then the time for Zuhr sets in and in the sunnats and nawaafil of Zuhr I recite the same three paras.

After the Zuhr Salaah, I look inside the Qur’aan and recite the same three paras.

By that time Asar Salaah sets in. After ‘Asar, I recite the same three paras to someone.

In this manner, I recite three paras of the Qur’aan 10 times in a day.

In the last ten days I increase this amount slightly so that I can complete this amount of Qur’aan in 9 days in case Ramadhaan has 29 days and if Ramadhaan is 30 days then I complete one more Qur’aan on the 30th day.”
