Welcome back to my blog with another post on what you should be doing if you are on the road to memorising the Qur’an!
If you have ever wondered how do these amazing Qaris go about and memorise the entire Quran, but have thought to yourself ‘that’s not for me, I can’t do it’ … then this is for you! ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป

[54:40] And indeed, We have made the Qur’an easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)?
How could we say that it is ‘difficult ‘ to study the Quran when the Lord of the Worlds himself promises that He has made it easy!

So here are 10 tips you should definitely try out if u are ready for the challenge:
1๏ธโƒฃ SET YOUR INTENTIONS RIGHT
Every single thing in our religion is based on INTENTIONS and we cannot afford to miss out on the rewards as a result of flawed intentions like seeking the worldly praise. So once this step is concrete,move on!
2๏ธโƒฃ USE THE SAME COPY OF THE QURAN
Set one copy of the Quran for this purpose and be sure to use it throughout ,instead of changing from one to another. People who tried it highly recommend it.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
3๏ธโƒฃ SCHEDULE YOUR TIME
Appoint a particular time of the day exclusively for your Quran memorisation. Instead of something like ‘7- 7:30’ ,fix your time as ‘after fajr or magrib, before sleep etc’ so that it is always practical. It could be a mere 10 or 15 minutes , and of course, that does not matter. Moving FORWARD is FORWARD, no matter at what pace.โœŒ๐Ÿป
4๏ธโƒฃ FIND A ‘QURAN BUDDY’
It’s always more interesting and motivating when you are working on something with somebody who has the same interests as you. Find somebody who would serve this purpose, buddy up & push each other to go the extra mile!๐Ÿ’•
5๏ธโƒฃ CHOOSE YOUR QARI
There’s an amazing list of Qaris you could listen to correct your mistakes and improve your tajweed. Find an app or download the audios of your favourite qari and keep listening to it a ton of times! Here’s a list of qaris you could search for :

 

6๏ธโƒฃ START SMALL
Take up small chunks of Quran and memorise before you take up big heaps. You should probably start from the 30th juz’ and get acquainted with it and then ta-da ,you will realize that things have started to get a lot easier!
7๏ธโƒฃ BEAUTIFY YOUR RECITATION
It’s always recommended to recite the Quran in your best voice possible. That way, you are following a sunnah, plus, it keeps you interested!
8๏ธโƒฃ READ THE TRANSLATION
It helps so much to reflect and recite when you have atleast some vague idea of what the ayah talks about. Try reading the simplest translation possible of each ayah you memorise.
9๏ธโƒฃ TRACK YOUR PROGRESS AND REMAIN CONSISTENT
If you have a daily planner or a book that can also serve as a ‘QuranMemo’ ,track down how many verses of which surah you have memorised each day. This will keep you reminded and motivated to keep going.
๐Ÿ”Ÿ MAKE ‘LOADS’ OF DUA’
It is not you or me who makes thing easy, He controls all things and Praise be to Him. So do your part and seek His aid in the amazing journey you are about to commence!

This, I say, is the easiest part. The real challenge is in ‘retaining’ the Qur’an you have memorised in the years to come. So ,ุงู† ุดุงุก ุงู„ู„ู‡ ,very soon , I’ll share with you tips on how to turn this into long term memory!
