It is highly advisable to recite the Holy Qur’an very frequently at the first hours of Ramadan. In this respect, it has been narrated that Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq(a.s.) used to say the following supplicatory prayer before he would start reciting the Holy Qur’an:
اللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّي اَشْهَدُ اَنَّ هٰذَا كِتَابُكَ الْمُنْزَلُ مِنْ عِنْدِكَ عَلَى رَسُولِكَ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللّٰهِ صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ وَ كَلامُكَ النَّاطِقُ عَلَى لِسَانِ نَبِيِّكَ جَعَلْتَهُ هَادِيا مِنْكَ اِلَى خَلْقِكَ وَ حَبْلا مُتَّصِلا فِيمَا بَيْنَكَ وَ بَيْنَ عِبَادِكَ اللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّي نَشَرْتُ عَهْدَكَ وَ كِتَابَكَ اللّٰهُمَّ فَاجْعَلْ نَظَرِي فِيهِ عِبَادَةً وَ قِرَاءَتِي فِيهِ فِكْرا وَ فِكْرِي فِيهِ اعْتِبَارا وَ اجْعَلْنِي مِمَّنِ اتَّعَظَ بِبَيَانِ مَوَاعِظِكَ فِيهِ وَ اجْتَنَبَ مَعَاصِيَكَ وَ لا تَطْبَعْ عِنْدَ قِرَاءَتِي عَلَى سَمْعِي وَ لا تَجْعَلْ عَلَى بَصَرِي غِشَاوَةً وَ لا تَجْعَلْ قِرَاءَتِي قِرَاءَةً لا تَدَبُّرَ فِيهَا بَلِ اجْعَلْنِي اَتَدَبَّرُ آيَاتِهِ وَ اَحْكَامَهُ، آخِذا بِشَرَائِعِ دِينِكَ وَ لا تَجْعَلْ نَظَرِي فِيهِ غَفْلَةً وَ لا قِرَاءَتِي هَذَرا اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ الرَّءُوفُ الرَّحِيمُ
O Allah I testify that this is the Book revealed by Thee on Thy Messenger Muhammad bin Abdillah, blessings of Allah be on him and on his children; (these are) Thy Words, Thy Prophet gave tongue to, (whom) Thou appointed as a Guide for the people, and an uninterrupted closely connected link of protecting friendship between Thee and Thy servants. O Allah I make publicly known Thy testament and Thy Book. O Allah let me pay full attention to (this) adorable pious work; let me notice and take warning from (this)thoughtful reflection;< let me be one of them who exhort themselves from Thy plain warnings and preaching found in this Book, and keep from that which Thou has made unlawful. Do not seal my hearing and do not cover my eyes when I recite (it). Do not let me recite for the sake of recitation , paying no attention to its meaning, but let me contemplate over its signs and commands, to know and understand the modus operandi of Thy religion. Do not let my concentration go slack, nor my recitation be like a delirious monologue. Verily Thou art full of pity, Merciful.
Imam al-Sadiq(a.s.) used to say the following supplicatory prayer When he finished reciting the Holy Qur’an,
اللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّي قَدْ قَرَأْتُ مَا قَضَيْتَ مِنْ كِتَابِكَ الَّذِي اَنْزَلْتَهُ عَلَى نَبِيِّكَ الصَّادِقِ صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ فَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ رَبَّنَا اللّٰهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِي مِمَّنْ يُحِلُّ حَلالَهُ وَ يُحَرِّمُ حَرَامَهُ وَ يُؤْمِنُ بِمُحْكَمِهِ وَ مُتَشَابِهِهِ وَ اجْعَلْهُ لِي اُنْسا فِي قَبْرِي وَ اُنْسا فِي حَشْرِي وَ اجْعَلْنِي مِمَّنْ تُرْقِيهِ بِكُلِّ آيَةٍ قَرَاَهَا دَرَجَةً فِي اَعْلَى عِلِّيِّينَ آمِينَ رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ.
O Allah I have recited that which Thou commands from Thy Book Thou revealed to Thy truthful Prophet, blessings of Allah be on him and on his children. (All) praise be to our Lord. O Allah let me be one of those who take to the lawful and keep from the unlawful, accept and show submissionto its clear as well as consimilar commands, let (this recitation) be my companion in my grave and at the time of Resurrection, and let me be one of those whom Thou shall raise and exalt, on account of this recitation, on the highest pedestal in the Paradise. Be it so O the Lord of the worlds.
It is recommended to say the supplicatory prayer known as Dua al-Hajj, which has been previously mentioned in this book.
