Is Finishing The Qur’aan in Ramadaan Obligatory?

Question Posed to Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy upon him):

Is finishing the Qur’aan in Ramadaan considered a matter that is obligatory for the fating person?

Finishing the Qur-aan in Ramadaan for the fasting person is not an obligatory matter. However it is befitting for the person in Ramadaan to recite the Qur-aan in abundance just as that is the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam. Jibreel use to go over the Qur-aan with him every Ramadaan.”
