How can I Strengthen My Willpower to Memorize the Quran?
Question: Many brothers and sisters ask that “I want to be able to memorize the Quran but I find it hard to find the time, how can I strengthen my willpower so strong that I’m able to memorize Quran in a short amount of time?
Answer: So, my dear respected brothers and sisters, this is a very good question I always say that you need to plan for your life, according to the Quran, make the Quran as the center of your life.
Once you plan to memorize the Quran in five years (Maximum) and I think all of you are able to memorize the Quran in five years, even in less than that.
Make Quran Memorization Plan
We have many young students who memorized Quran online without being in any Muslim country, I know a number of people who memorized the entire Quran while they are in London in a matter of four years.
You can do that if you have a plan.
A plan over five years, then you will have a plan over a year, then you will have a monthly plan, then you have a weekly plan and then you have a daily plan.
If you have a daily plan whenever you wake up in the morning my dear respected brothers and sisters the first thing you will think of is when to read your Quran and once you have that in mind the first thing you will do after salat Al fajr is to read Quran.
Fajr time is the best time for you to read Quran and when you get used to that habit you will be able to memorize the Quran easily at that time.
There is a language barrier between many of you and the Quran and that’s why I urge all of you to familiarize yourself with the rhythm of the Quran by reading Quran loudly and frequently.
I advise you to do the following:
- Take short surahs of the Quran, let’s start with surah Ikhlas. take that surah and record it in a way that is repeated.
- Instead of many of you putting those headphones and listening to music, listen to Quran.
I also advise you not to listen to the entire Quran.
Every day or every week you just listen to one surah only and that is repeated and once you listen to that you just repeat with that.
for example, you just hear Al Ikhlaas.
Keep listening to it.
Keep repeating after it, until you are able to match the reciter.
we want to stop this recitation that is without Tajweed or correct pronunciation. we need to stop that this is not Quran that Allah revealed.
That is the reason our online Quran teacher also focus on tajweed and helping you in pronouncing letters correctly, and how are you going to learn Quran?
By just listening to it frequently at one time and keep repeating it.
Once you know how to read it properly take the other surah which Al Falaq, once you know that surah as well take the other surah and then go throughout Juz Amma (30 Juz) like this.
My dear brothers and sisters many people try this and they said that within 3 months they memorized the last juz of the Quran and their tongues and their ears became very familiar with the Quran and then they started the journey of memorizing the entire Quran.
Please do this and you will see that it is very very effective.
