Is it ok for me to read 1 ruku everyday or is that not sufficient?

I used to read quran often, at least 3 ruku a day and tried memorising new surahs and preserving these memorisations.

But ever since I was afflicted with OCD and wiswas I have abandoned the quran and I barely read it. I just feel too lazy and demotivated to read it. My wiswas is to do with najasah and doubts about missing the pillars of acts of worship

I feel like coming back to the quran by reciting at least 1 ruku a day and then gradually increase the recitation of the quran.

  • What is 1 ruku? Please clarify/elaborate!

  • 1 ruku is around 10 ayahs. But it varies. Sometimes it can be more or less than 10 ayahs. Ruku is represented with the letter ع on top of an ayah. I'm surprised that you don't know what a ruku is. Jul 10 '21 at 18:02
  • Ruku or ع isn't an agreed upon standard. It's rather some local custom.

In Islam, it is permissible to recite/read: Any amount of ayats, rukus, surahs, juz as long as you dont finish the Quran in less than 3 days, in example:

  • an ayat a day
  • a ruku a day,
  • a surah a day,
  • a juz a day,
  • 10 juz a day,

Your question: is 1 reciting/reading ruku a day sufficient?

This is permissible as you wouldn't be abandoning the Quran.

  • “Just as long as you don’t finish the Quran in less than 3 days” —where does this come in to play exactly? Jul 14 '21 at 5:22
  • In Ibn Maajah (1347)
