Sometimes it’s as easy as A, B, C
Somedays it’s like a visit to the dentist
But when a couple of verses finally stick
It makes you feel on top of the world

It’s not for fame nor fortune that we memorize
But for that feeling of accomplishment
That we’re following in the footsteps of the companions
The feeling that we’re that little bit closer to Allah

May Allah purify our intentions and make it easy
May our minds be blessed with His Nur
May our hearts be filled with shukr
And may our final words be verses of Quran
-Halima S. Abubakar (Nigeria)
