Memorise Quran

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Your Question: Brother if i leave memorizing after taking the decision then will it be sin?

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.545 Narrated by Uthman

The Prophet (saws) said, "The best among you (Muslims) are those who learn the Qur'an and teach it."


Beloved Sister in Islam, rest assured that whether or not you fulfill your noble intention to memorize the whole Quran, the Lord Most Merciful will reward you for your noble intentions and efforts in whatever you are able to do.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.1 Narrated byUmar bin Al Khattab

I heard Allah's Messenger (saws) saying, "The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended.”


Sahih Muslim Hadith 235 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah (saws) said that Allah Subhanah, High and Exalted He is, says: ‘When it occurs to my bondsman that he should do a good deed but he actually does not do it, I record one good deed for him; but if he puts it into practice, I make an entry of ten good acts in his favour. When it occurs to him to do evil, but he does not commit it, I forgive that. But if he commits it, I record one evil deed against his name.’


Beloved Sister, Allah does not put a burden on anyone more than one can bear; and if for any reason whatsoever, you are unable to fulfill your intention to memorize the full Quran, rest assured that it would never constitute a sin and Allah Subhanah will reward you for your intentions and your efforts.


Beloved Sister, for every alphabet that one recites from the Glorious Quran, Allah Subhanah has promised the believers a great and unending reward; thus the more one recites, the more reward one would be able to accumulate in the Presence of the Majestic and Merciful Lord.


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2137 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Mas'ud

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "If anyone recites a letter from Allah's Book he will be credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a tenfold reward. I do not say that ‘Alif-Lam-Mim’ are one letter, but ‘Alif’ is a letter, ‘Lam’ is a letter. and ‘Mim’ is a letter."


If for any reason you are unable to fulfill your noble intention of memorizing the full Quran and are inclined to leave the memorization, there would be absolutely no sin upon you. It is expected that the Lord Most Merciful will reward you for your noble intention and striving, and if you constantly recite even the parts that you have memorized thus far, you will have a huge reward with your Lord.


Your Question: you tell me tips for memorizing it !?

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.552 Narrated by Abu Musa

The Prophet (saws) said, "Keep on reciting the Qur'an, for, by Him in Whose Hand my life is, Quran runs away (is forgotten) faster than camels that are released from their tying ropes!"


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.550 Narrated by Abdullah

The Prophet (saws) said, "It is a bad thing that some of you say, 'I have forgotten such-and-such verse of the Qur'an,' for indeed, he has been caused (by Allah) to forget it. So you must keep on reciting the Qur'an because it escapes from the hearts of men faster than camel (released from their tying ropes) do!"


Beloved Sister, the best way to remember and not forget what you have already memorized is to recite the Glorious Quran from memory as often as you can on a daily basis. Not only will this revision of the Glorious Quran not allow you to forget what you have already memorized, but you will also earn a huge reward from your Lord Most Merciful for its recitation.


Beloved Sister, Allah is our witness, there are no short-cuts or tips other than dedication, hard-work, the sincere love of Allah and His Book, and above all the Help of Allah Subhanah which would enable one to memorize the Glorious Quran! The constant revision of the Glorious Quran is the only thing which would prevent one from forgetting what one has already memorized from this Glorious Book.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and sincere well wisher in Islam,
