23 Sep My Hifdh Journey [GUEST POST] : the personal narrative of a Kenyan Muslimah
Assalaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah
Beloved Quran Hearts,
I pray that this week has been one in which you successfully achieved your hifdh – related goals. We all wish, we all feel that we could do so much better – and that’s perfectly fine, too! The inclination and intention to want to do more, and to want to do better at our hifdh, can help us stay determined and motivated to keep trying. At every stage of our hifdh journey, we should always be able to ask ourselves: “How can I do better? What do I need to do to improve tomorrow?”
Hifdh is a journey. Not a destination – not even for those who have completed memorization.
Each sunrise presents us with the question: “How can I be a more conscious Haafidha today, than I was yesterday?”
Read on to learn about the journey of one aspiring Haafidha’s hifdh experience. If you would like to share a part of your Hifdh journey, we’d love to feature your piece, too! Drop me an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and your piece will be considered for future publication.
Wishing you success and joy at every stage of your hifdh journey!
“Hifdhul Quran was something I longed to start for some time but again was held back thinking that it will take me ages to complete memorization of the Holy Quran. However, Alhamdulillah by Allah’s grace and the guidance of Hafidha Rayhaanah, I came to realise that Quran memorization is about the quality of the hifdh, it’s when you feel the words of Allah (SWT) having a positive impact in your day to day life. When you feel the beauty in the words of the creator as you recite the Quran, then you realise that hifdh is not only about memorizing Allah’s book, it shapes your life and opens your mind and brings peace to your heart.
I would encourage all my sisters to start your journey of hifdhul Quran now and don’t think of how much you need to cover but rather enjoy the process. May Allah make us among the people of the Quran”
