C&P: Memorization plan

  • Memorizing the Quran is a major and tremendous undertaking. It’s incomparable to any other projects, for its profit is guaranteed.
  • Every project you undertake needs a detailed plan, it has to have a beginning and an end, and between the beginning and the end there needs to be milestones to measure progress and be a source of motivation
  • You can start now. As for its end, it’s for you to decide. That will depend on your commitment to this project
  • Determine for yourself, how much you can memorize in a day, 1 page, 2 pages, 3 pages?
  • Then determine how much you can revise in a day.
  • Also determine how often during the week are you able to sit with a sheikh/teacher, once a week, twice etc?
  • It all depends on your own personal and individualized situation
  • The important thing is to have a detailed plan, a beginning and an ending
  • the duration doesn’t really matter, but what matters is that you have a plan, just like you have a plan of course of study in unversity
  • Don’t start off memorizing not knowing whether you will finish in 5 years or 10 years or even 15 years. Set your goal, “I will finish in 5 years inshaaAllah!”
  • Don’t think 5 years is too long. They can just pass you by very quickly.
  • You can have 5 years pass by so easily without making good use of them, but spending it with the book of Allah is very different
  • Just look at your own commitments and responsibilities and make your own customized plan. With this type of planning and management you WILL inshaaAllah be able to achieve this goal
  • A beautiful thing to do while  memorizing this Quran is for you to have an appointment with Allah ; a set time in the day where you would spend memorizing and revising the Quran
  • It can be half an hour, 1 hour, 2 hours, you set the time, just as long as you stick to it
  • An old man, who works as a school guard relates that he would revise 5 juzz a day, and some days he would feel sleepy, but he wouldn’t sleep until he finishes memorizing those 5 juzz
  • He would look for free time during his work days, and when he sees a free teacher, he would ask him to listen to his ruba3 (quarter) and so on
  • This time that you give to the Quran in the day, is quality time, so never ever give this time to something else. Keep this appointment with Allah
  • Surah Fatir [35:29]
    35:29
    Sahih International
    Indeed, those who recite the Book of Allah and establish prayer and spend [in His cause] out of what We have provided them, secretly and publicly, [can] expect a profit that will never perish –
  • Those who recite the Quran, and do not necessarily memorize it, imagine the reward they are getting, as the hadith says that when you recite the Quran, one letter gets you 10 reward
  • The one who merely recites is not at the same level as the one who memorizes
  • The one who memorizes, imagine his reward, as he does his revisions, and how close he is to the Quran compared to the one who doesn’t
  • The memorizer, he knows that this Quran will keep on dropping from his memory, so he keeps revising it, and he revises a lot, for the rest of their lives
  • This is the real ‘trade’ with Allah. And this trade, has a profit that will NEVER perish, as stated in the ayat above
  • Indeed, the rank of a haafidh is very very great
