29 Oct Retention of Hifdhul Quran
One of the struggles that I’ve faced during my journey of memorising the Quran is not memorising itself, but rather retaining the verses memorised. I guess those who are going through the same thing will be able to relate as well.
I feel the problem stems from not having a proper technique to follow. Previously for me, it was mostly just revising during my free time or whenever the need arises. However, this type of revision is only temporary as it’ll die down as soon as the motivation wavers. Furthermore, some methods of revision may be a bit taxing due to the huge workload. Thus, one may give up halfway through.
Alhamdulillah, a few months ago, I came across a method which is simple and not at all taxing yet very effective. One simply has to spend 30 mins a day revising. At first glance, it might seem a lot but mind you, time passes by very fast and you’d pass by the 30th minute mark quickly without realising. And if we can spend hours on social media, why not spend some time with the Quran?
So for those struggling with murajaah, give it a shot. There’s no need to rush. Move at your own pace and enjoy the process.
Because the last thing you’d want to do, would be waking up one day, full of guilt realising that; ‘I’ve forgotten my Quran’.
May Allah grant us the strength to be steadfast.
