What’s a juz?

Asalaam alaikum!

We’re gearing up for Ramadan, and Mama asked me to go online and find out what’s Sunnah for reading the Quran during Ramadan. It turns out that we are supposed to read the entire Quran during the month of Ramadan, one “juz” a day.  That is a lot of reading!

What’s a juz”?  There are thirty parts of the Quran. Each part is called a “juz.” In the Qurans that are printed in some countries like Saudi Arabia and Egypt, there are a little over 600 pages.  So, a juz is about twenty pages.

20 pages  X  30 days of Ramadan = 600 pages

Can we do it?  Insha Allah.  But we say “Bismallah Ar-Rahman Ar-Raheem” first!

Also, Mama reminded me that when we recite the Quran, we say “Authu Billah min shaytan ar-rajeem.”

There is a lot more to know about the Quran.  Insha Allah, you can find a lot of facts about the Quran at IslamWeb’s Kids Corner.  Of course, ask your mama or baba first before checking any new website.
