Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

I am attending a school in my country where we (the Muslims) usually recite the Holy book of Allah at both the beginning and ending of an academic term with the aim of seeking Allah's bounties throughout the term as well as our examination. However, a brother seriously said its an innovation they (we) are bringing into Islam. So please I need your clarification to also use to enlighten others. Wassalaam!

If it is not regarded as compulsory and those people who are not participating are not looked down upon and their is no intermingling of sexes or any other act which goes against the basic principles of quran and sunnah then its permissible and not a biddah.... It is a good thing to recite something from the book of Allah before starting anything good and hence a good practice....... Wassalaam

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

Gathering to read Qur'an is fine. Muslims from the Sahabah's رضي الله عنهم time did this. But it is the manner in which it is done. If everyone is reading individually, then it is okay. But if they are reciting in unison (all at once) .. then this is considered to be bi'dah.. since it was never known from the Prophet's صلى الله عليه وسلم time.
