Starting from the middle of the Qur’aan

Fatwaa ID: 744

If I started in the middle of the Quran and read the second 15 juzu then the first 15, does it count as a khitmah?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

If one recites the second half of the Qur’aan first and then the first half, the khatmah/rendition will be complete. A khatmah refers to reciting every letter of the Qur’aan. This will be accomplished in the enquired method. However, it is unadvisable to recite contrary to the sequence. You should start from the beginning and go to the end in its appropriate sequence.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
