  1. As-Salamu ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullah

    Jazak’allahu khayran for the inspiring article. It is motivating to learn that a wife and a mother of two can achieve so much! Alhamdulillah.

  2. Asalaamu Alaikum,

    I loved this article as memorizing the Quran is something I am working towards. I have a question regarding one comment though: Hafiza Rayhaanah said that an ideal Muslimah is one who is “free of the love of leadership”, and I just can’t seem to grasp this point. Could someone explain it to me please? JazakAllahu Khairan.

    • As I understand it, love of power (through leadership) is one of the fitnas that a Muslim guards himself from. It is illustrated in Sura Kahf in the story of Zu Al Qarnain. Despite his leadership and power, he remained humble and reminded himself that it is all a bounty from Allah and He can take it all away when He wills. So, there is no harm in being in a leadership position and to recognize the skills and how to develop them but not to seek it for worldly gain.

  3. Assalamu alaikum,

    a productive tip for memorizing.

    Investigate on different memorization techniques.

    My experience on memorization is that memorization is not at first place a process of having great brain storage/reminding capacity. It is more a process of regularity.

    The technique now I am using for memorizing is simply having two different review circles. One for short term review (reviewing the most current memorization e.g. of the last 4 days) and one for long term review(reviewing every day a portion of your total hifzh)

    I can also recommend the memorization course from

  10. Assalam alaikum,,Mashallah thats really amazing,, Jazakallah khair for motivating me i have already wasted a lot of days of my holidays :(,, in shaa allah ill get started with learning the quran bi izn illah,,,

  11. Dear Fatima Farook: Wa ‘alaykumus salaam wa Rahmatullah, inshaAllah! the first step is intention (niyyah) … now comes the action, all the best with your hifdh journey!

  12. respected br. c. Abdul wasim: aameen. yes, alHumdulillah, Islamic history bears testimony to haafidhaat from the earliest stages, including Mothers of the Believers, Aaisha (rad), Hafsa (rad).

  13. respected brother A Umar v: wa ‘alaykumus salam wa Rahmatullah, yes mashaAllah! I believe that once we establish a firm intention, make dua, strive in effort & rely upon Allah Ta’ala –> then anything is possible, bi ithnillah. Encouragement, yes, for all parents & working professionals to commit to your hifdh dreams and never give up!

  14. Mashallah very inspirational and honest..and so we can relate to your experience. Please make dua allah gives me tawfiq for tahajjud…and by that answers my prayers and as you have experienced obtain so much more…ameen jaza kallaj

  15. Jazaak Allah for this wonderful article. I’ve been wanting to memorize the quran for a long time but have never got down to doing it. This has really inspired me. I’d also like to know where I can get the book, Quranic Language Made Easy. I found just one seller and it seems to be out of stock.

  16. This is where to start your journey in hifz without having to leave your homes. Islamic Online University – Global Quran Memorization. We memorize with the ustazah, repeating after her, either open book or closed book, and alhamdulillah this method works better for me as everyone in the class are memorizing the same page.

    • As salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, even I want to join iou for hifz in sha Allah. At present am doing second semester of tajweed. I don know arabic grammar. Is it OK? I m confused to go ahead…. Please let me know if they provide assistance in understanding arabic or if v hv to do it as an additional task

  17. Truly inspiring. It brings out the barakah of tahajjud and of the verses of our Lord. Mashallah. May we all be humbled, be touched, be rewarded. Thank you for this post.

  18. Subhan Allah ! What an inspiring article ! It truly motivates me…. May Allah swt give us tawfiq to memorize entire Qur’an !
    Sister , please remember us in your dua ! May Allah swt accept all your effort !

  19. Assalamu alaikum

    One very good article i read after quite bit of time. Masha Allah. May Allah mercy on her. I liked the article much.


  21. Aslaamu alaikum wa rehmatulahe wa barakatuh , MashAllah , Allahu Akbar! Im currently memorizing Quran Alhumdolilah, problem with me is I cant stay constant. like i dont have anybody to motivate me everyday to sit and do my sabaq, its just me when i get up and do it. in one year i only did 4 juz when i could have done more , i know that in one day i can easily memorize one page but its my laziness ugghh! astaghfirullah. So I am a girl and if your a girl also memorizing and if you can read it fluently with good makharij then please i would like a buddy. And it will be beneficial for us please email me here:

  22. Assalam-o-Alaikum. I too have long yearned to make a connection with the Holy Quran. I know it requires dedication and sincerity. Though I know that there are no shortcuts but I have managed to learn Surah Mulk very conveniently and that is through mainly listening to the recitation. I have a ayat by ayat translation copy through which I made associations of the respective verse.

    I personally am very much into gadgets, cellphones and computers. Then I thought why not use these fancy inventions to aid myself, so I bought my favorite smart phone through which I can review the Holy Quran and copied the audio files into my mp3 player so that I can listen to it when I am driving and when I am going to sleep. Believe me it has worked wonderfully well for me. Format your music player and dedicate it to listening the Holy Quran. Do it repeatedly for a month and you’ll see that you start to memorize it sooner than you think.

  23. set targets.for eg,i have to learn this much juz by the end of week and always keep one or two hours of memorisation in every weekend and be consistent.Allah swt will help insha Allah

  24. Mashallah. Indeed inspiring. Am 35 a doctor by proffesion & have a deep wish to do hifz e quran. Seems like a mammoth task. Inshallah shall start real pray for me..I desperately wanna no hifz and then study hadith.

  25. mashallah sister
    i also trying to memorize the holy quran but my sins avoid me to complete it.pray for me to may be come a hafidh insha allah.

  26. Anyone interested in memorizing Quran should also watch Traveller with the Quran on Youtube its where one borther from Kuwait travels the world and comes across so many different types of memorisation for hifz depending on what part of the world, some of the characters and learning methods are truly inspirational. Its into its second season its in arabic but click the caption box on youtube and you’ll get english subtitles

  27. salam … i m planing to start learning HOLY QURAN INSHALLAH…plz tell me how much portion i have to learn in one day so that i can learn this great book in 2 years .. plz reply me soon

  28. Online quran tutoring is the best way to promote holy Quran education all over the world as most of our muslim brothers and sisters are unable to get quran education because they can’t find such institute near to their home as well as Quran tutors.Online tutors are the most appropriate solution for such brothers and sisters because Qualified Quran teachers are there on the internet to provide quran education at your home through online quran classes.

  29. Asalamu alaikum,

    I don’t know if you still reply to the comments, but I will give it a try. I have started memorizing the Quran, like your son, in 11th grade. It is really hard for me, so I was just wondering how he was able to finish the memorizing the Quran?

  30. Wa ‘alaykumus salaam wa Rahmatullah,
    Dear aspiring haafidh,
    MashaAllah TabaarukAllah!
    It would mean prioritising your daily and weekly list of schedules. I would suggest reducing extra activities and hobbies to a bare minimum. Ensure that you are eating healthy and drinking plenty of water. Rise for tahajjud daily & make dua as often as you can. Listen to plenty of audio (of Quran), as this would strengthen your audio memory of hifdh. Attend class daily, if possible. And get adequate rest nightly. Try your best, and leave the rest to Allah SWT. If you’re able to complete hifdh this year, that would be great alHumdulillah! If not, remember to remain diligent & to continue persevering, inshaAllah! Verily, Allah SWT is the best of planners.

  31. Jazakallahu khairan. A very good sharing for people who wants to memorize Quran. She proved that everyone can memorize Quran. Because Allah will help those who help him/herself.
