Assalaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah

Beloved Quran Hearts,

I hope that this week of Hifdh has been a joyful one for you: that you have concluded this week having reached some, if not all, your hifdh goals. Now is a great time to reflect on the week that’s past, and consider what you would do differently, more of, or even less at, in your hifdh prep for next week. Planning for the week ahead helps eliminate procrastination and build healthy, confident hifdh habits, inshaAllah.

This week’s Audio – Visual memorization resource is an insightful video (duration: 18 minutes), on the traditional North African method of memorization: In a small North African village, local people still practice the traditional way of memorizing Quran. Students use hand-carved pens and ink made out of wool, using them to write verses from the Quran on wooden slates. These young students will continue using these methods until they have successfully memorized the entire Quran and will then use the same method to teach the next generation.

Assalaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah

Beloved Quran Hearts,

I hope that your week has been filled with focus and resolve, as you continue to remain committed to your Hifdh Journey. Along the way, you may face numerous life challenges, mostly unexpected. And more often than not, it is our Hifdh Journey which is the first to be neglected. If you are in this season of your life, my advise would be to take each day as it comes, and consider every effort a means to progress: every minute counts and impacts on your hifdh. So if you have only half an hour at hand, and are analyzing whether or not that narrow time frame will even make an impact in your hifdh, I’m here to tell you YES! YES IT WILL! We often confuse QUALITY and QUANTITY. And while both are important, the QUALITY of your learning often outweighs the QUANITY, especially in the long run.

This week’s Audio – Visual memorization resource tip is all about strengthening the willpower to memorize Al Quran.

Watch this motivating 4-minute video clip which highlights the importance of PLANNING, REPETITION and AUDITORY ATTUNEMENT to hifdh:

Beloved Quran Hearts,

I hope that this week of Hifdh has been a successful one for you; and even if you have faced challenges along the way with your memorization, remember that the week is not yet over, and each sunrise gifts you the opportunity to start afresh, renew your intention, and keep trying, one step at a time, one verse at a time. Bismillah!

This week’s Audio – Visual memorization resource tip is all about the power of using a pen / pencil or your finger to optimize brain power and focus. It is said to help in absorbing and imprinting the words of Al Quran.

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Assalaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah,

Today, I share with you a visual clip, extracted from a programme presented by the respected Shaykh Ayman al-Swayd. It is a reminder, humbling indeed, of our daily supplication (mirroring our spiritual aspirations thereof) and that which I remind my students to pray for: “o Allah! Make us from the Family (people) of alQur’aan, verily they are Your Family (people) and Your special (distinguished) servants. Aameen.”

Verily, to be of the Ahlul Qur’aan one must honour The Preserved Scripture: that preservation is not merely textual, but includes character refinement, personal development & spiritual growth, aspiring to His Proximity ‘Azza wa Jall.

A summary of the video clip:

This is a dream one of the early scholars of Islam. He was one of the trusted reciters of the Quran. This narration was mentioned in the books of our scholars such as the famous ibn al Qayim rahimuhu Allah.

Please watch & listen carefully (there are English subtitles for non-Arabic viewers). And reflect. Reflect on why you are memorising. And for whom you are memorising. Reflect on your intention, purpose and mission to memorise. Reflect on your relationship with the One Who blessed you with the gift to read and memorise The Sacred Words. Subhaanaka Yaa Rabb!

A Meeting with Allah

Stay Inspired!

Rayhaanah
