HOW TO MEMORIZE THE NOBLE QUR’AAN?
Asalamu Alaykum Wa RahmatuLLAAHi Wa Barakatuh
HELPFUL ACTIVITIES TO REINFORCE MEMORIZATION:
a. Reciting in supererogatory prayers:
Instead of reciting Al-Ikhlas, Kawthar and Al-Nasr, recite from what you have memorized that day. If you have memorized 1/2 page, divide it into two and repeat it in your sunnah or nafl (supererogatorysuperogatory) prayers throughout the day.
b. Reciting at all times:
Think of all the times in your day where you are waiting for something: you are at the bus stop waiting, in traffic jam waiting for signals to turn green, waiting in hospital for your appointment/turn, if you kept a Qur’aan on you all of these periods could become moments for revising.
(revision=key to strong memorization)
c. Leading people in prayer:
The ultimate test. This is what will show whether what you have memorized is deeply embedded in your mind, easily recalled, or whether it isn’t.
d. Listening to Qur’aanic recitations with tajweed:
Use this as much as you can and have a set schedule. For example, say you have this much to memorize in a week, or this much to revise. Sometimes you will have heard recitation so much that when you come to memorize you’ll find that you’ve already memorized it.
