Fatwā from Shaykh Sāliḥ al-Fawzān:
Question: Is it correct that the duʿā (supplication) and al-Istighfār (seeking Allah’s forgiveness) between the adhān and the iqāmah is better than the recitation of the Qur’ān (during this time)?
Answer: Yes. That’s because the duʿā between the adhān and the iqāmah is something that is sure (to be an act of worship done at this specific time). It is legislated. The duʿā between the adhān and the iqāmah is not rejected and (if it is not done at this time), its (benefit) can be missed. As for the recitation of the Qur’ān, (the benefit of) it can not be missed because its time (of reciting it) is vast and it can be recited at another time. Continue reading
Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān (may Allāh preserve him) stated:

The Noble Imam, Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (may Allah preserve him) stated:

However if you were to ask him about a verse from the Book of Allah, you will see that he is ignorant of it. This is a big mistake. It is a must that the Book and the Sunnah are two wings for you, O Student of knowledge.

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.” Continue reading
