Hifdh-spiration


Assalaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah

Beloved Quran Hearts,

In the past week, countless people have been inspired by the life and legacy of 1 man: both in his living and dying, he was a noble example. May Allah Ta’ala grant him Al Firdous, ameen. I’v heard from people who, inspired by his Hifdh sacrifices, renewed their hifdh commitment, resumed memorizing, or gave considerable thought to what it means to live with a purpose. 

His, is an example of what it means to live a legacy – and leave one behind, for the Pleasure of Allah, and Allah Alone. 

A Quran legacy.

What will yours be???

Tajweed and the correct pronunciaton of each letter of The Qur’aan will always give preference over the vocal aspect of recitation. Yes, to beautify one’s Qiraa’ah is important but does not overpower the importance of reciting The Qur’aan correctly.

Wallahi (this is a statement coming from experience) it takes years of hard work and constant struggle, determination and effort to better and improve one’s recital of The Qur’aan. It’s sad that many of the young and upcoming reciters especially focus more on their voice rather than making an effort to recite Qur’aan correctly. There is also lack of sincerity and correct intentions when we are reciting The Qur’aan, whether it is private or public recitations.

There is a huge difference between a reciter who recites Qur’aan correctly with Tajweed and someone who recites Qur’aan with a beautiful voice but incorrectly. We have become so lazy that we struggle to find time to sit with a qualified Ustaadh/Qari to improve and perfect our Qur’aanic recitation. Watching YouTube videos is motivating and good for practice (especially those reciters who are qualified in the field of Qiraa’ah) but finding time to learn how to recite Qur’aan correctly face to face is extremely essential. This is how the Sahabah learnt Qur’aan.

We cannot recite the Qur’aan how we wish to recite it, rather we should recite the Qur’aan in the correct manner, in the way that is befitting and pleases Allah. This only comes from sacrificing time and effort to learn. Also, reflecting and pondering over the verses is just as important as reciting The Qur’aan correctly. Many of us struggle to understand the meanings of the majority of the verses of The Qur’aan. Arabic is an important language to grasp and learn, especially if one wants to understand the messages that Allah is giving to us in The Qur’aan.

May The Almighty enable us to respect, honour and promote The Qur’aan in a way that please Allah and is befitting for His Pleasure only.

Aameen.

Beloved Quran Hearts,

 

AlHumdulillah, another academic year is drawing to a close. We praise, glorify, and thank Allah Ta’ala for the many blessings and bounties He has gifted us, including that of Al Quran Al Kareem.

In the course of this year, some of us may have successfully achieved our hifdh-related goals, whilst some amongst us may realize the need to reassess and plan more effectively for the next year.

And along the way, our hope is that the love for Al Quran Al Hakeem has grown stronger, inshaAllah.

For Quran Hearts – the teaching and training branch of  Fee Qalbee – we have been blessed to share and learn with and from, students from 4 continents and more than 17 countries, walHumdulillah! It has truly been an honour to mentor sisters along the sacred path of Hifdh. May Allah Ta’ala forgive our shortcomings and accept our small, broken efforts, aameen.

InshaAllah, we will resume our blogging calendar and e-classes by mid-January 2018, and look forward to the exciting opportunities, potential, and growth that comes only from The Infinitely Merciful, The All Loving!

Heartfelt gratitude for you continued support and duaa,

Rayhaanah 

Assalaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah

Beloved Quran Hearts,

This week, a dose of inspiration for us all. In the midst of hifdh schedules, deadlines, expectations, triumphs and disappointments, it’s refreshing to learn of others striving on this Path, too: that there are thousands around the world from different countries, nationalities, ages and languages, all striving, every single day, with the same goal in mind: to preserve the words of Al Quran in their hearts.

Wishing you success and joy at every stage of your hifdh journey!

Beloved Quran Hearts,

We find ourselves merely 3 weeks away from the greatest of all days, the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah. May we reach the blessed days with inspired faith and sound hearts, ameen.

Post-Ramadan is perhaps one of the most challenging periods for many aspiring haafidhaat. Having completed the sacred month all motivated and immersed in Qur’anic devotion, one is often left feeling a tad bit unsure, feeling as though they are loosing the foothold gained in this month.

If anything, this post is just to remind YOU that the hifdh journey is a beautiful, albeit ongoing one. And for that reason, YOU need to:

  • Remain steadfast.
  • Get back on track.
  • Review your goals.
  • Assess / chart your progress.
  • Renew your intentions.

You have THIS MOMENT, to turn your can’ts into cans. To commit to your hifdh journey, even though it may feel as though you’re constantly doing just this. That is ok. Start by changing your focus and shifting your mindset. Rather than focussing on how little you’ve learnt or comparing yourself mercilessly with others, get back on track with your own set of strengths and weaknesses, and outline your own expectations and goals.

From years of teaching, I can honestly say that it if you want to be successful in recommitting and resuming your hifdh, you NEED to have a healthy approach, a relaistic outlook, and a positive mindset . This here, is where it all begins, Quran Hearts.

Today, what 3 things can YOU do to nurture a more positive outlook towards your hifdh? I’d like you to list them down please, print it out if you must, and let it be the first set and last set of printed words you see  each day.

Approach your hifdh with respect, dedication, focus, sustained effort, humbleness, and patience.  And love. Oh yes, plenty of love. Now watch the miracles unfold, Quran Hearts.

Wishing you success and joy at every stage of your hifdh journey!

Rayhaanah

Assalaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah

Beloved Quran Hearts,

We find ourselves having reached the half-way mark of Sha’baan 1438. A mere two weeks ago, we were in the midst of the month of Qur’an, doing all we could to connect to and honour the Glorious Qur’an, in thise fleeting days.

ou2

Many Qur’an centres close for the Eid break, and as they prepare to resume, I thought it apt to share 5 powerful and practical  reminders for us all, in the hope that they may aid your Hifdhul Qur’an journey to fruition:

  • Find a half hour of solitude: sit down, reflect and note down personal observations of your Ramadan Qur’an connection. Introspect: what were my strengths and weaknesses? What was the quality and consistency of my Qur’an connection this year? Did I feel distant, or nearer to Him?
  • Taking action: Be pro-active. It’s easy to fall on the wayside of a self-sabotaging motorcade. What are some of the steps you will need to take, ahead of the next Ramadan, in order to fulfill your short-term and long-term hifdh goals?
  • Calibrate: outline realistic goals for both the long-term and short-term: perhaps weekly or monthly goals? And then a goal you aim to work towards by the eve of the next Ramadan?
  • Motivational mechanisms: ensure that you have efficient tools, effective resources, and a supportive network to assist, cheer on, and pray for your hifdh progress.
  • Dua, Dua, Dua: Truly, I cannot overemphasize this, your most powerful tool! Don’t despair! At that moment, when you’re questioning when and if you’ll ever complete your hifdh, please know that it is Dua which keeps you grateful, focused, and determined on your path!

 

Wishing you success and joy at every stage of your hifdh journey!

Rayhaanah

PS: our Skype hifdh revision lessons resume early August, inshaAllah! Email: rayhaanah@gmail.com  with a brief outline of the hifdh revision you require, your time zone / country, with the subject line: ‘August semester intake’, and your email address will be added to our waiting list, inshaAllah.
