Hifz” or simply memorisation of the Quran is a dream for every Muslim/parents. However, it is very difficult due to their daily hectic schedules of the children /parents to push them , they don’t have the time to devote to the memorisation of the Quran.
We adopt the following for our students to memorise the Quran
1 – We Rise Up Early In the Morning
We wake up and offer Fajr prayers in the mosque. When we are done with the early morning prayers, instead of dedicating your time to frivolous activities like watching TV or surfing the internet, spend a several minutes memorizing the Quran.
2 – We Set Realistic Goals and Memorise
We push to memorise one or two pages per day as this seems to be a realistic goal. However, it may differ student to student. Dedicating to help them to reach the level to reach high
3 – We Use the Familiarity Technique
Initially, as the students are starting out to memorise the Quran, they will naturally come across unfamiliar verses. Therefore, in order to commit them to memory, they can write five verses onto a piece of paper and learn them by heart. Request them to read those verses over and over again over the course of the next few weeks in order to retain them to memory fully.
4 – We Keep Daily Verses Close at Hand
We use every spare moment throughout the day to read and memorise the lines of the Quran that they are committing to memory. For example, they may have several free minutes during the time you are waiting for a something , an appointment at a doctor’s clinic etc. They can keep the list of the verses of the day in your handbag or pocket for easy access and refer to them whenever they are struggling to remember what they are learning.
5 – Recite What they Memorise In Every Salah
To further cement what they are learning into memory, they would can recite everyday verses in the five daily prayers. In each raka, they can alternate between the five verses you learnt the same day or the previous days.
6 – We Track Your Goals
If one page of the Quran contains at last 15 lines, by the end of the week they would have memorised two pages of the Quran and the pattern would continue until they have fully committed the Quran to memory. Additionally, they can learn verse by verse with translation and ponder over the meanings of the same, and learn Arabic.
7 – We Have Distraction Free Environment
It is best to memorise the Quran in a secluded place with little or no distraction at all. By ensuring that the environment is quiet, they will be able to increase focus and thus be able to retain what you memorise. For example, as we have earlier mentioned, early morning memorisation sessions are very effective because of the minimum distractions at that time. Additionally, they will turn off cell phone and laptop and focus solely on the Quran so as to increase attention.
8 – We Review and push them to Memorise as Many Times as Possible In a Single Day
In order to memorise the Quran, it is important to revise every verse they learn. we use the following 3 method technique to ensure that they retain everything they have learnt: Begin a new memorisation at the start of the day
Students on the Hifz course embark on the noble task of committing the whole Qur’an to memory. They undergo a rigorous routine of memorisation designed to enable completion within three years. In addition to their daily assessments, regular evaluations take place through 6 weekly examinations. In addition to this, a six-weekly report of the student’s progress is sent to parents.
Emphasis is given to the importance of Tajweed (Phonetics of the Qur’an) and rules of recitation. The Hafiz (one who memorises the whole Qur’an) has historically played a key role in the preservation of the Qur’an, and continues to do so today.
