In Mazaahirul ‘Uloom and Darul ‘Uloom Deoband many students would go to the musjid at the time of fajr azaan and engage themselves in the tilaawat of the Quraan Majeed. Hazrat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) would go to the musjid before the fajr azaan. When the azaan was called out, he would perform the sunnats of fajr and engage himself in tilaawat or tasbeeh. The sound of the students reciting the Quraan Majeed would bring happiness to his heart and soul.

Hazrat Mufti Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) would stress on his followers and disciples the recitation of the Quraan Majeed daily and encouraged the huffaaz to recite a minimum of three paras in their sunnah and nafl salaah, i.e. the sunnats of fajr, zuhr, ‘asar, maghrib and ‘esha, as well as awwaabeen, ishraaq, tahajjud and other nawaafil.
