Tay-E-Lisaan (Allah Ta’laa enables one to read a great amount of Qur’aan in a short time)

Upon occasion Hadhrat Mufti Mahmood Gangohi رحمه الله was asked as to how is it possible that people would read so much of Quraan in such a short span of time

He replied as follows, ” These incidents are possible. Just as tayy-e-ardh occurs i.e. in a short span of time Allah Ta’laa through His Power enables someone to traverse great distances.

The incident of Mi’raaj took place in the similar manner. Nabi ﷺ was taken from Musjid-Ul-Haraam to Musjid-ul-Aqsa and from there to the skies. The ‘Arsh, Kursi etc. were shown to Nabi ﷺ – all in a very short span of time.

A Blind Hafidh

Mufti Mahmood Gangohi رحمه الله was asked, “What is the shortest period in which the whole Quraan can be completed?

Mufti Saheb response was, ” My Ustaadh, Hafiz Karim Baksh Sahib رحمه الله was blind. He lived and taught in Gangoh. It would take him three and half hours to complete the entire Quraan.

Imaam Abu Hanifah’s completion of the Quraan

Hadhrat Imaam Abu Hanifah رحمه الله once came to the Haram Shareef and in two rakaats he completed the entire Qur’aan. In each rakaat he read 15 paras.

The Practice of Hadhrat Uthman رضي الله عنه

Hadhrat Uthmaan Zun Nurain رضي الله عنه used to complete the entire Qur’aan in just one night. Similarly, Hadhrat Abdullah bin Zubair رضي الله عنه would complete the entire Qur’aan in one night. (Fadhaa’il-e-Quraan, Pg 41)

Falling For The Quraan

Mufti Mahmood Gangohi رحمه الله was asked if he ever completed the Qur’aan in salaah.

Mufti Saheb responded by saying, ” I fell twice whilst reciting the Qu’raan in salaah. Once during Ramadhaan whilst reciting in nafl salaah in Laal Masjid, Ganhoh, i suffered a blackout and collapsed. My ustaad(teacher) was in front of me and had not allowed us to eat after iftaar (breaking the fast) and the hunger was extremely severe. This ustaad’s name was Hafiz Abdul Karim.

The other occasion was whilst I was reciting the Qur’aan un the Nawaafil of Zuhr in Qaadhi Musjid which is also in Gangoh.”

Mufti Mahmood Gangohi’s رحمه الله Practice

Mufti Mahmood Gangohi رحمه الله states, ‘I never completed the Quraan in one sitting, but for a long period of time I used to recite thirty paras daily. These thirty paras were not from Alif laam meem until the end. Instead, I used to recite the para that to be recited in the taraweeh salaah thirty time. Thus, in thirty days thirty khatams were made.”

However it is stated in Hayaat-e-Mahmood, Vol 2, pg 29, “For a long time it was Hadhrat’s practice to recite the entire Qur’aan daily. Half of this was recited in salaah”
