    Hifz Experiences

    :start:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Ok so people ask me how did you go about memorizing the entire Qur’aan brother Aboo Thaabit? From cover to cover? Was it not difficult? How can I do something like that?

    Well to be honest it is very easy and I’ll let you guys in on a secret.

    Memorising the Qur’aan is extremely easy, in fact even a parrot could do it! And it is this concept you have to come to terms with.

    It really has to do with the mind-set of a person, meaning if you think something is hard you will naturally find it hard but if you think something is easy, it will become easy. So when you start, have the right mind-set and Ikhlaas.

    Allaah tells you in the Qur’aan itself:

    وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا الْقُرْآنَ لِلذِّكْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ

    Hence, indeed, We made this Qur’aan easy to remember, then is there anyone to remember it?

    (Al-Qamar 54:17)

    Do you then doubt Allaah?

    Secondly is the issue of discipline, I cannot stress this enough, if you want to be a haafidh you have to make time to memorize.

    Basically you will have to be a loner, lock yourself in your room listen to a recording over and over again.

    When I used to memorize I had a tape player and I used to rewind the tape over and over again trying my best to get the pronunciation and flow of the verse correct, sometimes late into the night and I could hear the rest of the family snoring.

    Also try to immerse yourself in the Qur’aan, make your breathing, eating and even your spare time into Qur’aan.

    Recite it whilst walking or perhaps sitting in class waiting for the teacher to arrive.

    In your sunnah prayers stop reciting soorah Kawthar and Ikhlaas, try a new soorah and master it!

    One of the things that inspired me to start memorizing was when I saw the Imaams of Makkah, namely Sudais and Shuraim, leading the Taraweeh prayers.

    When I saw them stand there leading so many people with that confidence reciting the verses of Allaah off by heart I thought to myself WOW! If they can do it so can I!

    And whatever spare time I got not memorizing in my room I used to sit in front of the tv and listen to their recitations.

    I used to quiz my friends about the Qur’aan, test them and then letting them test me.

    When you love something it truly becomes a pleasure.

    Remember to stop thinking about when you will be finished. I remember the day I finished my Qur’aan I was sad, people said to me this should be the happiest day in your life! I said I am sad because now I don’t have any new Qur’aan to memorize.

    So do not be hasty dear brothers and sisters rather take your time, do not see memorizing the Qur’aan as a task or burden, but rather enjoy the journey and process.

    I realise there are a lot of things left unmentioned but I figured there are many articles like this one all over the internet and my intention was only to inspire fellow Muslims to do the same thing as me and not to boast.

    My younger brother threaded the same path as me and will finish the Qur’aan shortly too inshaaAllaah.

    اللَّهُمّ اجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

    O Allaah, make us leaders for the pious!

          :jkk: . Excellent motivational thread. The few longer surahs I have learnt have been through repetition hearing of the ayah and reciting in my salaah. I also confidence to do it and Allah helped me.

          I'm not great at reading Quran , so I learn my surah by ear.

            MAshaAllah and Thank you for that useful information.

            A brother once said his method of memorising was reading the 1st word, then 1st and 2nd word, 1st 2nd 3rd word etc... because of the repitition he learnt the whole quran, mashaAllah.

            I'd love to be a quran hafidh, but need to perfect my tajweed. InshaAllah.

                    Jazakallah! What an excellent thread.

                    That is one thing I never done, listen to the recordings but I will do that now by reading this thread. Nice one.

                        I think middle road will agree with me the day you get tested and you get ijaza and your sanad is a very tearful day.

                        to see the name of the prophet pbuh on that paper , the fact that your now connected to rasuloolah pbuh is very emotional

                              Just so it's clear, I didn't write that post. And I'm not Abu Thabit. :p
