    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!

    Loftiness is attained in accordance to one’s struggles
    And whoever seeks nobility, remains vigilant by night
    Whoever wishes to achieve, without due effort
    Will waste their life in seeking the impossible
    You search for glory and yet you sleep at night
    It is only the seeker of pearls who dives deep into the sea.

    Shafi'i

    This thread needs to be bumped

    A problem made me reflect, the ability to recite/memorize/review the quran is a blessing in and of itself, you don't realise how great it is until you end up in the situation where you can't read much. Then you find yourself making dua just to be able to recite a little bit more, something a lot of us take for granted.

    "Your body is from this Earth and can only be fed with food from this Earth. But your soul is from the sky and can only be fed with food from the sky.

    So make sure you have your daily portion of the Qur'an to feed your soul."

    - Sh Abu Abdillah Yunus

    If they ask you "why are you sad?"
    Tell them truthfully and say to them
    "I rarely make istighfar and I left reading the quran"
    ...

    السلام عليكم و رحمة الله وبركاته

    I have been having problems with my recitation. My teacher keeps saying I'm doing imala in my recitation and I have never been taught imala before. I know it's used in other qiraas but I'm wondering where I got it plus I'm mostly listening to Hussary رحمه الله

    It has been discouraging to say the least. While still having issues with makharij and sifaat of heavy letters esp ص & ط this pops out of nowhere.

    Who can get enough of the word of Allah, the speech of Allah? Who can get enough from the medicine that is a cure for the heart, the soul and the body? The Qur’an is a cure from doubts and desires. The Qur’an is a cure from worries, anxiety and depression.

    Some people, when I tell them to recite the Qur’an to relieve the problems, they call me the next day and say well I am still depressed, I still have the doubts. I tell them when a doctor gives medication and we are talking about similar to that anti depressant medication, one of the things he says about some of them is keep taking it for three of four weeks for the medicine to kick in and you get its affect, and after that do not ever stop taking it. The Qur’an needs close friendship to take effect. It needs consistent persistent dedication and recitation in order to see its affect.
