22 Sep Way to The Quran…
Assalamu ‘alaykum, Quran Hearts…
A student recently forwarded this extract, and I thought to share it with you, too. For those who have memorized, it is a humbling reminder; for those memorizing, it invokes determination along this journey; for those struggling with their hifdh or doubting their abilities, it speaks to the hidden courage within.
Hifz is an essential way of making the Qur’an penetrate you. It is not a mechanical, ritual act; it is an act of high spiritual and devotional importance. Only through hifz can you read the Qur’an in Prayers and ponder over its meaning while you stand in the presence of the Speaker. But apart from that, it makes the Qur’an flow on your tongue, reside in your mind, dwell in your heart: it becomes your constant companion.
Also as you memorize more you will find it easier to make your inner self participate in its reading and your mind study and understand its meaning.” [Way to the Quran, Khurram Murad]
Wishing you success at every stage of your hifdh journey!
