Commencing A Quraan Khatam Before Completing A Previous One


Can a person start a new Quran khatam without completing his previous khatam?


It is allowed for a person to make a new Khatam without completing the previous Khatam. However, it will be best if person completes the first Khatam that he is busy with then start a new Khatam. It comes in a Hadeeth that a man said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! Which deed is most virtuous to Allah?’ He said: ‘Al-Haallul-Murtahil” He said: ‘What is Al-Haallul-Murtahil? Nabi SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Salaam said: ‘The one who recites from the beginning of the Qur’an to the end then from the end goes onto the beginning again setting out for another completion, (like the one who) every time disembarks from his mount in journey, embarks on his mount again.'”

عن ابن عباس، قال: فال رجل: يا رسول الله أي العمل أخث إلى الله؟ قال: الخال المرتحل. فال: وما احال المرتحل؟ قال: الذي يصرب من أول الفرآن إلى آخره كلما حل ارتحل.
( سنن الترمذي ج ه ص ٤٨ دار الغرب الإسلامي) 

عن أي هريرة رضي الله عنه، قال: قام رجل إلى التي صلى الله عليه وسلم، فقال: يا رسول الله أي العمل أفص؟ أو أي العمل أحب إلى الله؟ قال: «اخال، المزتحن الذي يفتخ الفران وبختمة، صاحب الفرآن يصرب من أوله إلى آخره، ومن اخره إلى أوله، كلما حلل ارتحل» ( المسدرلا ج ١ ص م ٧٥ دار الكتب العلمية) 

لأن النئ – صلى الله عليه وسلم – قال «خيز الناس الحال المرتحل» أي الخاتم المفتتخ ( رد المحتار ج ١ ص ٥٤٧ دار الفكر)
