    • Re: How to Memorize the Quran and Never Forget it

      Assalamualaykum, can anyone please elaborate on the spaced interval method? Should you start the spaced review after strong memorization or just when it's barely there in your memory?
      Shukran.

          We have a long hifdh experience thread which is full of tips and advice.

          Don't keep changing teachers although having more than one teacher has it's benefits. Don't spend so much time checking the recitation of others and helping others when you should be putting that time towards your own hifdh.
          Make sure your teacher is someone you respect and make sure you give them the respect they deserve.

          As for practical things
          repetition is the only way it's going to stay, keep it simple...keep repeating until you have memorised that portion for the day, how you repeat is up to you
          review in night prayers and get into the habit of praying it regularly because it is not right for someone who has memorized the quran to not pray something at night
          Have high aims and clear intentions on why you are doing this

          فَأرْشَدَنِي إلَى تَرْكِ المعَاصي
          وَأخْبَرَنِي بأَنَّ العِلْمَ نُورٌ
          ونورُ الله لا يهدى لعاصي

            ^saw it. there are good tips in it but it would be nice to hear individual's methods and how they overcame barriers a lot face when learning

            I think common problems are not having the mental stamina to sit somewhere and read for an hour or finding the time to do it. I often make a million excuses in my head once I sit down and find it hard to put the thoughts off. In the morning its you're tired wait til later, and later its too distracting with everything bustling wait til night when its calm, at night its go to sleep and do it when you feel fresh in the morning

              That's where a teacher becomes very useful especially one who you know will not shy away from being stern with you if you don't do your portion for that day

                • Re: quran memorization tips

                  [MENTION=111562]hadmatter[/MENTION] I believe we should Live with the Qur'an and the memorization will follow afterwards insha'Allah. We need to build a very special unique "Love/ hope/ fear relationship" with our Creator through his words ( Qur'an).

                  Personally, I'd recommend the following:

                  1- Recite the Surah if it's short or divide it into parts if it's long ( let's say on page at a time or it could be half page according to your capacity and time). Sahaba used to do 10 verses at a time only.

                  2-Use mind-maps
                  There 're mind maps for every Surah of the Qur'an ( I have them in Arabic) but I'm sure u can find them in the English language as well ( google it). The goal of these mind-maps is to allow one to visualise the main themes of each chapter in a single page. They make it easy for you to remember the main ideas of each Surah, the topics/ incidents it deals with. Thus, It makes it way easier to memorize.

                  3- Read the tafseer of these verses or Surah. Because Understanding what we read and the reason or incidents behind it make it fixed in our brains.

                  4- Repetition.

                  4- Review in night prayer, as [MENTION=130730]Rumaysah~[/MENTION] said earlier.

                  5- Makw dua'a that Allah help u to memorize Qur'an and make it act as intercessor for you.

                  6- Try your best to Implement Quran in your daily life. Do not make the Qur'an an opponent, i.e., to testify against you.

                  It's said that it took some companion of Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) long years to memorize one Surah and the Quran was revealed in their own language.

                  Originally posted by Fitnah Bolice View Post

                  This is because the way that the Sahabah would study the Quran is that they would take ten ayaat at a time only. They would study these ten ayaat, study the eemaan, the ilm, the halal and the haram in these ayaat. They would memorize the ayaat and apply its rulings to their lives. They would not move onto the next ten ayaat until they had brought their lives into compliance with the first ten. The Quran thus became alive and second nature to them, its knowledge was not wasted and lost.
                  7- You 're going through a lifetime enjoyable journey with the words of Allah. So, don't rush memorization and reaching the end of Surah. Take your time, contemplate slowly and enjoy. ( as if you drinking your favorite coffee you sipping it slowly and enjoying every bit of it's taste ). You know that feeling when u savor something, you enjoy it so much that you want to make it last forever. It should be like that with Qur'an and to Allah and his words ( Qur'an) belongs the utmost example of perfection, of course.

                  May Allah help us all to memorize Qur'an, work upon it and make it our guide to Paradise

                    why merge two completely different topics because they both have a similar subject? I stated mine was for people who have difficulty with attention/boredom not forgetting.

                      The method is for those who fail using the traditional method. I could not remember using the traditional method. This method, in contrast, allowed me not only to remember what I memorized but recall from memory without having to review the page beforehand.

                      It depends on the individual and how he uses it. There was a user on this thread who had problems with 10 Juz. He used the method to strengthen it. Once his memorization was strengthened he incorporated it into his traditional method.

                      So, it really depends on how you use it.

                            The Prophet :saw: said:


                            It will be said to the companion of the Qur’aan: Recite and rise in status, recite as you used to recite in the world, for your status will be at the last verse that you recite.


                            This tradition has been recorded in both Tirmidi Shareef and Sunan Abi Dawood and has been classified as Sahih (authentic) by the late Muhaddith (Scholar of Hadith) Sheikh Al-albani.

                            The word Companion in this Hadith has been understood to mean a person who has memorized the Quran. As is evident by the following words of the Hadith "Recite and rise in status" that with each memorized Verse which a person recites, he will rise a rank in Paradise.

                            The Quran has more than 6000 Verses. Imagine how many ranks a person who has memorized the Quran will rise in Paradise. Not only this. Such a person will be in the company if the noble Angels as the Prophet :saw: has mentioned in the following authentic Tradition:

                            The likeness of the one who reads Qur’aan and memorizes it is that he is with the righteous honorable scribes. The likeness of the one who reads it and tries hard to memorize it even though it is difficult for him, he will have two rewards.


                            Additionally, just consider for a moment the joy of knowing that one has the Words of God, the all powerful and Supreme Ruler of all that exists, in his heart. The Words of a Being the likeness of whom does not exist. Truly, it is a feeling that cannot be described in words.
                            Of course, Memorizing the Quran appears to be a daunting task. This is especially true if you do not know how to go about Memorizing such a large Book.

                            My story

                            It took me 10 years to Memorize the Quran. This was because of lack of knowledge of proper memorizing technique. I used the technique used in Islamic Madrassas. Unfortunately, this technique did not suit a person like me who had horrible memory.

                            God has blessed me with a strong short term memory but my long term memory is the worst on the planet. After having memorized 20 Juz I fell ill due to a mental illness. After I recovered I had pretty much given up all hope of memorizing the Quran. However, God had ordained that I memorize it so I ended up doing so.

                            Nevertheless, after I memorized it I was faced with the problem of transferring what I had learned into my long term memory. It was then that God guided me to a technique which has been known to cognitive psychologists for a long time. A technique I used and am still using to transfer what I have memories into my long term memory and it has worked wonders.

                            Spaced Repetition


                            Spaced Repetition is a technique in which a person practices recalling what he has memorized at intervals of increasing time. Dong so transfers what one has memorized into long term memory. For those interested in reading about this phenomenon in detail I would recommend the following website.

                            Spaced Repetition Details

                            For those who do not have the time to understand this phenomenon just remember this. If you want to transfer information into long term you need to recall the information just when you are about to forget it. After each time you recall it the next interval required for recall the information in order to prevent forgetfulness increases. Eventually, a time comes when you only have to recall what you have memorized once a year!

                            At this point you are probably wondering how does one know when one is about to forget what he or she has memorized. Well, this is based on a formula which was devised by a Polish scientist after extensive research and experimentation. The formula is implemented by free software such as Anki. You can use this software to schedule when to remind you to recall what you have memorized from the Quran.

                            My Experience

                            Prior to using spaced repetition, it would take me fifteen to twenty minutes to review a page I had memorized. However, with the help of spaced repetition I was able to review a page within 3 to 5 minutes and a complete Juz within one to one and a half hour! And this was for a guy like me who has horrible memory. And the best part is that I felt no tension while reviewing.

                            Memorizing the Quran had become so easy!

                            This technique is often used by people who learn languages and need to memorize large lists of vocabulary. Psychologists are shocked that schools do not implement spaced repetition to teach information. They say not using this system despite the research which supports its effectiveness is like a person who has weak eyesight but refuses to wear glasses despite knowing that glasses can help him see properly!

                            Anki

                            Anki is a free program which you can use to memorize the Quran. It implements spaced repetition. It is available for free for both computers and android devices. Install it on your android phone and revise the Quran whenever you have free time anywhere!

                            Using Anki is simple. Once you have downloaded the software you just need to create flashcards for what you have memorized. How I do this is that I put a page of the Quran I have memorized into the Back of the Card and the page before that into the Front of the card. Then I enter the phrase "Recite the page which follows" in the Front of the card. Whenever, it is time to review the page, the program shows me the Front of the card and I see the "Review Next Page" command and I try to recall what I have memorized.

                            An Alternative Method


                            If you find using software difficult then you can implement spaced repletion manually for what you have memorized. Simply follow this formula. Whenever you memorize a portion of the Quran, review it 1 day after you have memorized it. Then review it after 3 days.

                            After that take the last interval which in this case is 3 days, divide it by 2, round it up, and then add the result to the previous interval to get the next interval. So in this case the next interval would be 5 days since 3 divided by 2 is 1.5. Round it up and you get 2. Add that to 3 and you get 5.

                            When you revise on the 5th day then to get the next interval divide 5 by 2 and you get 2.5. Round it up and you get 3. Add that to 5 and you have 8 days which is the next interval.

                            After eight days to get the next interval divide 8 by 2 and you get 4. Add 4 to 8 and you get 12 days which is the next interval.

                            Using this method you will Insha Allah never forget the Quran and you will feel no pressure when reviewing.

                            Note: In case you cannot completely recall what you have memorized don't hesitate to look at what you have missed. With time whatever you have memorized will become a part of long term memory and you will not forget anything!

                            For detailed instructions on how to use Anki here is the manual for the program
                            . There are also other programs you can use for spaced repetition but I found this one to be the best. If you have any questions on how to use the program or spaced repetition simply ask in this thread and I will tyr to answer them!
                            I am going to start memorising the Quran, but as time goes by, my responsibilites increase, I have found Anki, but I don;t know how to copy the whole Quran onto the app, so can I have a copy of your anki deck
