Q511: finding it difficult to read the Quran regularly, cure?

Question: How do you start praying more Qur’aan daily if you find it difficult/get lazy/ get distracted by other things?

Answer: The best way to start any good act of worship is to start with something you can do easily, for example “Everyday I will read one quarter of a Juz” set a time for it and stick to it, it may be hard at the beginning, but after some time it will set into your daily routine inshallah. Once this becomes a habit you will begin to feel uneasy and miss it when you have not done it. You can then increase the amount you do.

عن عائشة رضي الله تعالى عنها قالت قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم أحب الأعمال إلى الله أدومها و إن قل (بخاري,مسلم)
The most beloved actions in the sight of Allah (SWT) are the regular ones, even if they amount to little in quantity (Bukhari, Muslim)

There is a dua for the cure of laziness.

اللهم اني أعوذ بك من العجز والكسل وأعوذ بك من الجبن والبخل وأعوذ بك من غلبة الدين و قهر الرجال

Translation: “O Allah i seek your refuge from being disabled and from being lazy, I also take your refuge from cowardice and stinginess, and I take your refuge from being overpowered by debts and the oppression of people”

And Allah SWT knows best
