Memorisation advice and tips -
Memorising the Quran is among one of the most virtuous and rewarding deeds. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever recites a letter from Allah’s Book, then he receives the reward from it, and the reward of ten the like of it. I do not say that Alif Lam Mim is a letter, but Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter and Mim is a letter.” (Tirmidhi)
When people first start their journey in memorising the Quran, they search for the best methods and tips on how to memorise. Although everyone will have a preferred method of memorising, the most important factor is to find a method that will allow you to remember everything that has been memorised. Below are some tips that we have put together at Quran Plan to help you memorise. We hope that you will find them beneficial:
Sometimes it just requires taking a small step to achieve bigger goals. Setting targets and making a daily commitment to achieve those targets is the best way to achieve our potential. Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Take up good deeds only as much as you are able, for the best deeds are those done regularly even if they are few.” (Sunan Ibn Mājah 4240)
By choosing a set number of ayahs to memorise every day and maintaining that, our dream of memorising the Quran can become a reality with the help of Allah.
Find a teacher
It is extremely important to have a qualified Quran teacher when memorising. The teacher will act as a reference point for you, helping you correct your mistakes and refining your tajweed if needed. However, we understand that sometimes it is not possible to learn with a teacher face to face. If you find yourself in such situation, you can still memorise the Quran online. Many institutions provide online Quran classes. Search online and find a reputable Quran school.
Whilst memorising the Quran is the easy, keeping up with your revision is the most difficult part. Without an effective revision plan, it is easy to forget what you have memorised.
