بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Assalaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah

Recently,  a number of hifdh students & teachers have shared this list entitled, ‘How long do you need to memorize the Qur’an?’. I thought it ideal to share with Fee Qalbee readers, in the hope that it will encourage you in your hifdh journey and, for those who have deferred /  put a temporary pause to their hifdh, may it inspire your resumption.

We often look at Qur’aanic memorisation in it’s entirety: meaning, we’d all ideally love to memorize the entire Qur’aan, but when we think of committing and thereafter retaining literally hundreds of pages & thousands of aayaat, it can sometimes be an overwhelming thought. When will I complete, if ever?! we sometimes think. 

But in taking baby steps from the base of the ‘mountain’, you will find the ascension much easier and a feat that can be accomplished, inshaAllah. Soldier on, even if it means learning one verse a day or month, because every effort counts and takes you nearer, closer to your goal of completion!

Do remember that hifdh is never meant to be undertaken in a rushed manner, but rather as a journey of ease, filled with guidance & His Love. By no means am I advocating time limitations, but I do feel that this listing helps in defining and charting progress that can be made with daily, consistent effort at one’s hifdh goals.

Stay Inspired!
