, Qur'an. By Dr. Yahya al-Ghouthani, Jeddah (world leading Quranic recitation authority) Translated by Abu Muqatil – may Allah be forgiving to him and his parents In light of the principles which have passed us by in the previous section, I say to whoever wants to memorize a page from the Noble Quran from any chapter that I hope that you will stay with me so we can read the following steps together at ease paving the way to apply it precisely.
1. Obtain a good mus-haf Try to obtain a good copy of the Quran whose size is according to your need and never ever replace it so that you will be strong in memorising the parts of the pages and the lines. The mus-haf al-huffaaz (the memorisers‟ codex) [i.e. the text of the popular green edition from Madina written by the world famous calligrapher, Ta Ha Uthman] is preferred which starts with the verse at the start of the page and finishes with the last verse, and it is divided up well, whereby the Quran being thirty juz` (parts), every juz` has 20 pages and every page has 25 lines. The King Fahd organization in Medina al-Munawwarah has built a printer for this copy and I advice getting it as it is the most accurate contemporary print.
2. Set the scene Setting the scene for memorization according to the following:i. Self-composure – Have the correct intention in mind and a desire for reward from Allah ii. Wudoo` (ablution) and complete purity – Do not take the easy option of those who give a fatwa (legal edict) for its opposite as that goes against what befits high regard of the Speech of Allah and good manners with it. iii. Comfortable setting – Sitting in a place where you feel at ease, and there is no more sacred place than the mosque. iv. Free of distractions – It is preferred that it is a place without many pictures, carvings, decorations and distractions. The more enclosed the place is – with all due regards to fresh air – the better, compared with open space, trees and gardens. Even if some may differ with me, but I say this based upon experience not from abstract thinking. The atmosphere for light reading is different from the atmosphere for focused memorization, as wide spaces, sceneries and trees distract the mind and focus. Whatever is suitable for light reading is not needed for genuine work and focus, as mentioned in rule 4. v. Face the Qibla – (direction of prayer towards Mecca) and sit in a state of submission, tranquillity and respect.
3. “Warm up” Begin the “warm up” process (for want of a better expression). It is the preparation where you read a few pages of the Quran before starting the memorization process, whether from memory or looking. Recite nicely, listening to yourself without haste or delay. This is a fundamental component in preparing the self. You will find many successful memorization teachers do not allow the student to memorize before getting them to revise the previous session and letting the sheikh hear. This is to prepare him psychologically and spiritually for memorization, whilst the student may be totally unaware of the teacher‟s aim. 4. Be controlled in recitation Beware of your voice‟s beauty from distracting you at this point. The sweetness of your tone encompasses you in the atmospher e of chanting. So you start thinking that you‟re so -and-so, the famous reciter, then you assume his persona and start to recite with deliberation and perfecting the letters. You repeat it and recite it again like some of the reciters. Perhaps it all goes over the top and you bring out a microphone and recording equipment. Time will pass by whilst you are unaware, and you become like that young man who really wanted to memorize the Quran but every time he sat down to memorize he opened the Quran at 7-rah Y-suf and began to chant it until the time passed him by and he memorized absolutely nothing. 5. “Feel that urge…” About 10-15 minutes of the warm up exercise and personal preparation you will feel a strong desire in yourself to memorize, with that it is possible for you to start with a new page you want to memorize. 6. Focus Here begins an important stage, you really have to doubly focus on the verses. Imagine that your eye is a camera lens, and that you want to film the page with sound and image. Be careful not to shake the camera. 7. “Action!”
perseverance. artwork. One of them stands at the window with the excuse of getting fresh air. don‟t get excited. then it is like taking a firm stance without retracting from it and his behaviour increases his conviction in what he does. Read correctly with concentration. my brother. Concentration 4. as it reflects an increased conviction in oneself with what you‟ve read. After reading these steps – if you like them – begin implementing them straight away and record in a special notebook the date of beginning memorization. 10. Repeat Then open your eyes a second time. Then repeat and repeat many times until it is engraved deeply in your memory. Contact someone you love and trust.Open your eyes well. Lets use an as example His statement. and then tell them that you have found a technique in memorizing the Quran that you began applying today. east and the west. You have put yourself forward as someone from the people of the Quran and from its memorizers. Do not be concerned about the type of furniture or coverings you‟re sitting on. Connecting Result = a strong memorization with the best method. Read by looking at the first verse at the top of the page in an audible voice with tajw5d [the correct rules of recitation]. One of the benefits of contacting someone like this is that it will be an encouragement for you in memorization and continuation. Instead close your eyes and read another time. He guides whom He wills to a Straight Way. If you think the verse is long. Source: Kayfa Tahfaz al-Qur`aan al-Kareem (“How to Memorise the Noble Quran”) . then there he takes a census of cars based upon make and model. With this you have chis elled in your mind an engraving that is impossible to disappear with the permission of Allah. Free your mind from any distraction. Repeat this process many times but no less than five times. If you are certain that you‟ve memorized it correctly. be careful not to divert your gaze to the things around you such as written notices distributed upon walls. posters. if a person does something and he convinces someone else about it. Repetition 5. you will definitely find this approach sound. then close your eyes and picture in your mind the places of the words and read them. so that you can be someone who guides to good. It is possible to summarize this method in the following steps:1. focus and an absence of distractions.” [2:142] Read three or more times until your mind takes it all in. the Most High. 9. Connection process Begin now with the connection process which I mentioned in the eighth rule of memorization. Note: During the process of recall and repetition. That is by opening the book and focusing on the last part of the first verse – for example – … إلى صراط مستقيمand read it with an audible voice then connect it quickly without any stop with the first part of the second verse وكذلك جعلناكم أمة وسطا. If you succeed in reading them completely without any mistake. 8. the Most High: The fools among the people will say. You have no business with these distractions. This is what is confirmed in psychology. don‟t get excited but instead repeat two. Do not follow a whirling fan. or décor. three or five times. and in this manner time passes him and is wasted whilst he hasn‟t benefited a single thing. or perhaps you will be distracted by the scene of people in the street. Read the same verse from the book to confirm the correctness of your memorization. Next verse After that move to the verse immediately following it: Thus we have made you a middle nation…[2:143] and begin with the same steps we outlined with the previous verse. Try the steps carefully. Personal composure 2. then divide it into several parts corresponding to correct and sound stops and normal meanings. and that requires motivation. Be careful of excessively looking out of the windows. “What has turned them from their prayer direction to which they were used to face in prayer. perhaps your eyes will chance upon something that w ill not please you.” Say. or the scene of cars as happens to students during their revision for their exams. Warm up 3. “To Allah belong both.
this form takes the most struggle as it is easy to get distracted and fall out of the daily routine when there is no appointed time to recite to a teacher and no group for extra motivation. and self motivation and control to do the memorization by their selves. and perseverance. This helps keep motivation up. and deep from the gut determination. 5. Review/Testing Don‟t be in a hurry to finish memorizing and whiz through it without the memorization being firm. There are some who do better on an individualized program. and then on groups of ajzaa. nor too easy so the student feels u nchallenged and loses interest. but with a group where each person recites what he/she has memorized to the teacher or individually has a set date for reciting his/her memorization to a teacher. it is You who is the Knowing. Then again.” Assalaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. so the student of memorization doesn‟t get frustrated and give up. Indeed. This question alone is one that books could be written on. She is in charge of the non-Arab division at Dar Al-Huda Qur‟an School for ladies. watching our every move and knows what is in our hearts. The student may want to research the sound ahaadeeth on the benefits of memorizing the Qur‟an and the honor those who have memorized receive on the Day of Resurrection. and also formulates bonds of brotherhood/sisterhood between the students for mutual cooperation and assistance. as no one likes to be behind the class. It is very important. no. schedule. Still others have the patience. patience. imperative. pray that this is for the benefit of the Muslims. the time of day when there is the least amount of noise. memorized the Quran and went on to receive an ijaazah in the way of Hafs „an „Asim. This time is set by the individual circumstances. The student should be able to close the mushaf (copy of the Quran) and recite what he/she memorized completely without a mistake. but it is hard. perseverance. and ask Allah to guide me in my answers to that which is best and helpful to the Muslims who wish to learn and memorize the Words of Allah. Schedule The next is to set up a reasonable schedule. The stories get more and more amazing as the years go by and some Muslims lose track of the fact that Allah is always monitoring. time and days of class. continual supplication to Allah for success. We hope that these answers are beneficial to you and us. The main three points of advice surround intention. even though it is obvious. and another ijaazah by the way of Tayyibat Al -Nashr. For that reason. then that same section should be repeated during the day.It is the perfect time for students to start or renew their memorization now that the summer break is upon us and Ramadan is right around the corner inshaAllah. I say “of course” thinking that it is hardly possible for one to embark on this journey without pure intentions. but if possible right after fajr is what I would recommend. Ameen. or 10 at a time as the memorizer progresses through the stages of putting the Qur‟an in their memory. She then continued and received an ijaazah in the ten qira‟aat min tareeq Ash -Shaaitibiyyah and Ad-Durrah. . I will try not to. Intention Of course the first step is to make one‟s intention solely for the pleasure of Allah and not for any earthly gain. one including daily memorization and review. by the way of Shatibiyyah. author of the three part book series: Tajweed Rules of the Qur‟an. The Muslim brothers or sisters who have embarked on or are going to embark on this journey need to be honest with themselves and clear up any kind of wiswas (whispers) that may occur in their intentions. as it is one that requires great amounts of time. I thank you for the good supposition you have about me. It is always best that the memorization and review are sequential and not random. On the whole. claiming to have a certificate they don‟t. May Allah make us from the Companions of His Book and unite us with His righteous slaves in the highest gardens of Paradise. Ustadhah Kareema Czerepinski. I feel like it is still the number one thing to say. It is of the upmost importance that this schedule is neither too ambitious. The best way for most is to be in an organized group with a set curriculum. First of all. the Wise. then change them every week or so. that someone who is proficient in the Qur‟an listens to what has been memorized and che cks it. One may put posters up in different part of the house with some of the ahaadeeth. we have no knowledge except what You have taught us. This helps give the memorizer a clear picture of where he/she is and where he/she is going. What is your advice for the one who has embarked on the journey to memorize the Quran? “Exalted are You. or a chai n of transmission that they don‟t. It is important to set apart a specific time of day to memorize and review. such as 3. to help refresh the intentions and feel motivated. and being tested. and least amount of chance of being bothered or distracted. It is also crucial to be tested on a whole juz’when finished. lately there has been a rise in Muslims forging documents. all to charge others great amounts of money for the chance to recite to them.
Reading other‟s stories of struggle can also help. This is the basic tajweed knowledge that all Muslims should apply in their reading. ikhfa’.The review part of the daily section is just as important as the new memorization. Why would one want to recite it another way? The Arabs at the time of revelation spoke with idhgaam. the first few mutashaabihaat are not too difficult to keep straight. and the Sahabah with tajweed. and this was then passed down in authentic chains of transmission to us and documented in the old books on tajweed. Others do better in a classroom situation with a set curriculum and complete devotion to memorization.e. or any other sort of tool. peace and blessings of Allah upon him. taki ng time off is not an option. This can be quite difficult. school. perhaps through listening to recorded recitations only? It is possible. or just memorizing a few for their prayers. mastered Qur‟an teacher. One tool is writing down the different stories of the same content or groups of aayaat and comparing them. and/or other responsibilities? Or is it recommended to take time off and devote oneself completely for it. renew one‟s intentions. change the hadeeth on the wall to a new one and read all the previously hung hadeeth. The wiswas can be in the form of making one feel like it is never going to end. etc. then later decide they want to teach or find themselves in a situation in which they are the only ones around who knows any amount of Qur‟an. There are numerous books in Arabic which help with the mutashaabihaat and there are poems. One cannot teach properly without having a strong basis of knowledge themselves. One cannot call himself or herself a haafidh when in fact he/she memorized piece by piece and never put it together or reviewed intensely. the student of memorization needs to find a quiet. Oftentimes with a tight schedule and well planned time control one can do more than freeing oneself completely to devote all one‟s time to memorization. can you shed some light on why it is a critical part of learning t he Qur‟an? The Qur‟an was revealed in the Arabic language and was recited by the Prophet. the memorizer can add the new aayaat to his/her comparative list and study them and review them all at the same time. noon saakinah. masha‟ Allah and don‟t need mnemonic devices to keep them str aight. Is it possible for one to perfect their tajweed and pronunciation without a teacher. but not very likely.) Memorizing them isn‟t nearly as difficult as keeping them straight when reviewing. etc. One can start memorizing at a slow level while learning the tajweed rules and being corrected on its application in recitation. and insha’Allah there will be barakah in the remaining activities. whether they are memorizing the whole Qur‟an. or change their mind and want an ijaazah. For example the lines outlining the places in the Qur‟an which have abadan after khaalideen feeha really helped. Since memorizing is a slow build up. but learned some parts and read through it and that helped keep many things straight. For many. I would caution however. There are a few who are very good at imitating sounds and have the ear to pick up the small minute changes in sound heard from recordings and produce them with their own . finding the similarities and differences. consistent time where he/she can memorize and review. As the same story comes up in different surahs. though. How does one face a period of laziness that might attack in the middle of this journey? The student of the Qur‟an needs to realize before they start that shaytaan is going to come to them and try to dissuade them from their noble goal. The way the Qur‟an has been taught from the early days of this nation and will continue to be taught is by oral transmission. This will make returning to the memorization more difficult and usually one will feel like the task has become harder. all the rules we now study to be able to read the Qur‟an with tajweed. What is the best way to schedule memorization around work. The stories of the Prophets is one area in which this is especially needed. One specific poem which helped me personally was As-Sakhkhaawiyyah. There are parts of tajweed which are vital to know. The worst thing to do at this time is take a break from memorizing. Any tips on the best way to memorize the Mutashabihaat verses? (i. being taught and listened to and corrected by a trained. Knowing this should keep the student on guard and help recognize the cause of the laziness or feeling of wanting to stop. and then have to go back and learn everything in detail. Many Muslims feel that learning tajweed is not necessary. makhraj. There are parts of tajweed which were not in the normal Arab speech such as the lengthening of the sounds in the mudood. similar. those verses that are repeated. Some Muslims just can keep them straight by themselves. and later after learning the required tajweed step up the memorization quantity. mudood. I didn‟t memorize the whole poem. For most Muslims I would say that they should learn the above. Memorization should have first priority in the day. It is hard to say whether it is better to take time off from studies and work to memorize or not. or seeing others having “fun” while the student is struggling forth. and meem saakinah. plus all the rest of detailed tajweed because those who have memorized are usually called upon to teach and have a duty to help other Muslims. since without applying them the actual letters can change in sound and a major mistake is made. that many times Muslims memorize. for better results? As previously mentioned. It is later when firming up memorization and reviewing that it can become difficult. What level of tajweed does one need to possess before embarking on the journey to memorize Quran? This would depend on one‟s ultimate goal. The best thing to do is make dua’. then it would be enough to know the basic rules such as the laam saakinah. If one is memorizing with the intention of never teaching anyone else and just to get the honor and reward.
Again. and are not afraid to make a mistake. Knowing the vowel on the last letter of the aayah becomes particularly important in learning and applying the different qira’aat. but more important is improving themselves as Muslims and making that a habit. Is it required to memorize the last harakah of each ayah if one does not have a solid background in Arabic grammar? One doesn‟t need to have a solid background in Arabic grammar to memorize the last harakah of the aayah. they should approach a sheikh or sheikhah with an ijaazah and be evaluated by them. and listen to one of the masters of tajweed such as Sheikh Al-Husary or Sheikh Abdullah Basfar. If the student of the Qur‟an would like to achieve an ijaazah of the Qur‟an after memorizing and firming up the memorization. they should try to do this strong program of review for at least six months after completing memorization. one juz’ per day. repent for all your sins and stop anything that is not suitable f or “ahl al-Qur’an.” (the people of the Qur‟an) Do not waste time. or the very minum. but there are many stories of Muslims memorizing the Qur‟an later in life. you will not forget. what is the best method of reviewing the Book of Allah. Many people associate memorization with being young. the student can then pursue knowledge of the 10 qiraa’aat. or start an ijaazah with them. meaning if you review five ajzaa’ per day. When we memorize the Qur‟an we should pay attention to the last harakah and try to memorize it with the rest of the aayah. After the evaluation. After that the student who cannot keep up with five ajzaa’ per day can decrease the amount to 2 or 3 a day. If one cannot keep up reviewing 5 per day all the time. but the reward of Allah is great for all your efforts. After an ijaazah in one riwaayah or qiraa’ah. you won‟t forget” ( )خمس ال تنسى. don‟t be afraid of the struggle and devote yourself to the Qur‟an. but this is not the average person. Focus on the task at hand. My advice is to never give up. not even some. The students who do the best on the whole are those who are eager to be corrected.mouth. but the general rule for the vast majority is that it is extremely important that one is corrected by a trained teacher. and by His will. Many Muslims have lofty goals. One needs to have a solid Arabic grammar background to explain the reason for the harakah. Y ou do have to sacrifice. Stay away from sin. nothing is impossible with Allah‟s help. and determination. but lose the ir precious time searching the Internet for different recordings of recitation from multiple shuyookh. it is just the beginning. fast extra fasts. do not complain. she accomplished her goal. This is something I can‟t say enough. What should be the goal(s) of a student who has completed their memorization and what should they do after this? This is really up to the student for most aspects. I know of a sister in her 30s with 5 children who memorized the who le Qur‟an in 3 years and went on to get an ijaazah. do not give up. but she did it for Allah. Turn to Allah. What are some habits that a student of the Qur‟an should implement? You probably mean study habits. Sometimes Muslims have a mental picture of those over 40 or 50 not being able to memorize. so use it wisely and use it for the sake of Alla h. Pray tahajjud. so me even starting in their 60‟s and succeeding in completion. Many shuyookh giving ijazaah request the student of the ijaazah to join aayaat together particularly in the shorter surahs to make sure the student knows the vowel on the last letter of an aayah. With purity of intention. Don‟t make excuses for yourself and don‟t let your ego get in your way. make sure you implement the aayaat of Qur‟an in your life and are a shining example of those of the Qur‟an. What advice do you have for new Muslims and older Muslims who face difficulty with memorizing and pronunciation? The same advice as above. looking up details of the qira’aat and other advanced details of tajweed when they themselves are relatively beginners or have not progressed far in their memorization. but be stubborn in your pursuit of reading the words of Allah correctly and keep trying. In your opinion. How much repetition is required for one to completely solidify the hifdh? What has worked for you/your students? . and wished to get an ijaazah in the Qur‟an. Is it possible for someone to begin memorizing after the „golden years‟ of memorization? And what is your advice for such a person? Youth on the whole can memorize easier. Once the memorization is complete it is not the end. he/she should memorize the Jazariyyah and study its meaning. If the student has not memorized the Jazariyyah poem. but age should not stop anyone from memorizing. it can happen. instead it is a rare case. any less than this will not keep the memorization strong. but the goal that should be shared by all after memorizing the Qur‟an is to fir m up the memorization and have a very strong review program to keep themself a hafidh. it is a precious commodity for the student of the Qur‟an. “[Review] five. so as not to lose it by Allah‟s will? The scholars say. This is a very true statement. lots of dua’ asking Allah to make it simple. the sheikh or sheikhah might give them points to work on. Some give up too easily. She had to sacrifice sleep and many other things we generally hold important. There is much to learn and each step is more beautiful than the previous one.
The school I studied at has special classes for tathbeet (firming up memorization). I seek Allah’s forgiveness and repent to Him alone. and it is quite important that a deeper understanding of the Qur‟an and the background for a surah or aayah be known. ال رح ين ال رحوي هللا ب سن هللا ورحوة ع ل ي كي ال س الم Easiest Way to Memorize Al-Quraan By our dear Shaykh: Abdul-Muhsin bin Muhammad al-Qaasim Imaam and Khateeb of Masjid An-Nabawiyy ash-Shareef . those who are “carriers” of the Qur‟an should have truthfulness and honesty. as well as any explanation given by the Prophet. There needs to be study of vocabulary words along with the memorization and tests given on the vocabulary words. sent by Sister Umm Amarah. then the other science. Please recommend a Tafseer suitable for beginners. There is no doubt that one who carries the Book of Allah must also carry beautiful conduct and character. if at all possible. we should try our utmost. Patience is also a very important characteristic which those who are carriers of the Qur‟an should have. and for six months the review should be quite intense with five „ajzaa per day reviewed. and each day recited three ajzaa’ to the teacher as a class. How important do you think it is to study tafseer along with memorization? Does it aid in memorizing? It is extremely important and yes it aids greatly in memorization. math and literature subjects. The following are what came to my mind. Suffice it to be said that it requires a lot of repetition. The inside of Ahl Al-Qur’an should be like their outward appearance. but we didn‟t know which section we were going to be asked to recite as individuals. /106 Assalamualaykum. as “ahl Al-Qur’an” should be examples of the best in character and conduct. so the memorization needed to be quite firm. If one has taqwaa. This was and is a very good program and I thank Allah for giving me the opportunity to be in this class. and are under the category of taqwaa: First and foremost. meaning there should be no hypocrisy. especially if word by word meaning is given to the students as they memorize. As a class we went through the Qur‟an six times. described the Prophet peace and blessings of Allah upon him. Teaching them that Qur‟an is first is something they will carry with them to adulthood. and the Sahaabah. may Allah make us of “ahl alQur’an.” and give us the honors promised those who have memorized the Qur’an on the Day of Resurrection. may He purify our intentions in all that we do. Can you please shed light on some of the most important characteristics of Ahl-al-Quran? There are so many. insha’ Allah. everything else will be correct.It is hard to quantify and varies from individual to individual. I heard a lecture once recommending that parents always start their children with Qur‟an homework. Another very important characteristic is standing up for the truth and not wronging anyone or allowing someone to be wronged. the number of students in the class. then any ot her deen related subjects. trying to keep our tajweed up as much as possible. each of us had recited the whole Qur‟an to her. I think the one encompassing characteristic is that of Taqwaa. May Allah reward those who did this with a great reward and make it of the deeds which continue accumulating for them after their deaths. It cannot be that ahl al-Qur’an tell lies or are dishonest. Ibn Kathir is a great tafseer and al-hamdu lillah it has been translated into English. Even though we are far from his example. The teacher would keep track of which sections we had recited to her and at the end of the ye ar. We should aim to have our manners as [what is in] the Qur‟an as Aisha may Allah be pleased with her. May Allah grant us the best of manners and characteristics. This will show the children the importance of Qur‟an. but in pieces. Which tafseer did you benefit from the most? The translations into English of the meaning of the Qur‟an give only a general idea of the aayaat. We were required to recite at a quick pace. peace and blessings of Allah upon him. How can we instill love for the Qur‟an in our children and youth? By showing them how much we love it and by employing the Qu‟ran in our life in every aspect.
then go to reviewing the last ten ajza' of al-Quraan over a period of one month. is what follows: 1-Read the first ayah twenty times ( س ه وه السو وا ال و الول ا ر )ال كين ال 2. memorizing one or two wajh.-----------.

And the ideal way of bringing together memorization and review. On the second day he reads from Surah alMaaidah to the end of Surah at-Tawbah. nine suwar.

"How did you divide the Quraan?" They said" Three suwar (pl. until you end the memorization of al-Quraan completely.
