How long is the Quran should you read a day?

There is no guide that specifies reading a specific part of the Holy Qur’an throughout the day, but it is better to allocate yourself a daily prayer that you can adhere to and maintain.

But of course, the more you read, the better, and the best evidence for this is the saying of the Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace:

“Whoever reads a letter from the Book of God, he will have a good deed for it. I do not say: (Alif Laam Meem) is a letter, but Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter, and Meem is a letter.” – Narrated by Al-Tirmidhi

“من قرأ حرفًا من كتاب الله، فله به حسنة، لا أقول: (ألم) حرف، ولكن ألف حرف، ولام حرف، وميم حرف.” – رواه الترمذي
