31 Mar Towards Ramadhan 2013: Setting the wheels in motion
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Assalaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah
AlHumdulillah, a number of the Fee Qalbee blog readers are devoted to tilaawatul Qur’aan but as yet, have not begun their Hifdh Journey. And there are readers amongst us who may have begun with Tahfeedh, but have since placed the ‘pause’ button on their learning process.
It is my hope that this chart will motivate you to once again, set the wheels in motion and make your dream of memorisation a reality. We often impose limitations and restrictions upon ourselves. Unfairly, we lament that our Hifdh Journey will ‘never end’ or, ‘i’ll be memorising for forever!’ And such sentiments often deter us from trying – from trying to memorise for The Pleasure of Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta’ala Alone.
Look at how Merciful Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta’ala is!
Whether is is a verse a day or a page every other, you can, by the Permission and Will of The Almighty, complete your hifdh.
It is never too late to start or recommence.
And even if it does take ‘a lifetime’, then that in itself, would be a tremendous blessing: I could think of no better way than to spend one’s life committed to the preservation of The Glorious Qur’aan. WalHumdulilah!
The emphasis should always be given to the connection to The Almighty, after which the pace at which we memorise can be focused upon.
So, why are you procrastinating ???
To explain: If you learn the amount of Qur’an specified on the left each day, then it’ll take you the amount of time indicated on the right to memorise the entire Qur’an. For example, if you memorise 9 verses of Qur’an each day without stopping, it should take you 1 year, 11months and 12 days to memorise the entire Qur’an.
The page number estimation will also differ, depending on which mushaf print you are using for your daily memorisation, and hence, the number of lines per page.
