“And We have indeed made the Qur’aan easy to understand and remember, then is there any one who will remember (or receive admonition)?” [54:17]
Fee Qalbee’ : A unique blog that seeks to inspire muslim women to memorise Al Qur’aan. Utilising textual, audio & visual information, our aim is to instill the love & ambition within each muslimah to make tahfeedhul Qur’aan an integral part of her spiritual quest to gain His Divine Pleasure.
In addition to this, we seek to provide a global support network for muslimahs worldwide, to share their experiences, challenges, memories & advice on memorizing Al Qur’aan.
My personal journey towards learning Al Qur’aan, began at a tender age, whilst growing up in Europe. The phenomenal sacrifices of a loving mother & the strong support of a dear father ( May Allah bless them abundantly & grant them the highest abodes in Paradise,aameen!) played the most significant role in my journey. My wonderful husband, sisters, friends, teachers & scholars were & continue to be mediums of inspiration & progress, Alhamdulillah. I hope to journal & share my experiences as a student & teacher, for which I am eternally grateful to Allah, The Lord of the worlds: Alhamdulillahi bi ni’mati hi tatimmus-saalihaat!
Why ‘Fee Qalbee’?
“Those who knew Qur’aan by heart shall be the leaders among the dwellers of Paradise.” [At-Tabaraani]
All & absolute praise is due only unto Allah Ta’ala, who blessed us with Al Qur’aan: The Sacred, Noble Book, of which its beautiful verses are like the thread from which the substance of our souls are weaved. Abundant salutations be upon our beloved teacher & role model, the 1rst Haafidh of Al Qur’aan, Sayyidinaa Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), whose entire life represented the Qur’aanic model.
As I’ve often reminded myself & students alike, there is a simple equation that illustrates the significance of the heart in relation to memorizing Al Qur’aan: Hifdh + Heart =Heedfulness (of Al Qur’aan)
For indeed, the heart of a believer is unique: For, a true believer acknowledges that whilst she has been gifted to preserve the Mighty Words in her heart, she needs also to understand & implement its wisdom & value in her life. I strongly believe that when we preserve its verses, together with its application, then we are, by the Mercy of Allah, heading towards a profound revolution of the spiritual heart.
We beseech Allah Most High, to bless us with sincere, conscious, repentant & believing hearts, that surrender to His Commands, aameen!
May we personify the beauty of Al Qur’aan – with our hearts, minds, bodies & souls:
“Those who listen to the Word, and follow the best (meaning) in it: those are the ones whom Allah has guided, and those are the ones endued with understanding.” [39:18]
In pursuit of Allah’s Pleasure,
