How to memorize Quran?
- Sincerity. The first question you need to be careful about is your intention (if you will, you will get good ones). Make sure that the intention you make is only for the sake of Allah subḥānahu Wata’āla (glorified and exalted be He), to seek His Pleasure so that InshAllah, with His Mercy, will be rewarded in the ‘Aakhirah. It is not to show in front of others that you have memorized much. Sincerity is not a unique factor but it is a continuous battle that you must always renew.
- Coherence. The more you memorize more often, the easier it becomes. It is so essential to be consistent and not to even jump one day. There is no weekend of worship. The bare minimum that must be memorized is at least 3 lines, 5 is more ideal. If you are consistent, inshAllah, you will be Hafiz in 5-6 years.
- Timing. The first thing you should do during the day is to memorize – even if before your breakfast because it is your spiritual breakfast. The best time to memorize is just after Fajr. (Sh. Yasir took an hour to memorize a page at the beginning and ends up at 15 to 20 minutes
- Atmosphere. Have a secluded place to go and memorize in a place that is quiet. You can not just memorize yourself correctly with distractions, then turn off all your devices (like cell phones)

- Familiarity: Start at the same time, in the same place and use the same Quran book every day. You must have your own copy of Mushaf (Madani Mushaf is highly recommended), it will become more expensive for you.
- No magic tricks: repeat, repeat, repeat, over and over again. It is simply a repetitive recitation and/or listening that will help memorize.
- Memorize the meaning: read the translation before you start and try to match the Arabic words with their meanings
- Surround yourself with the recitation: listen to the Qur’an. Before you start to memorize, listen to what you want to memorize. Sh. Hosari is highly recommended (see here the best resources to help you memorize)
- Find a friend of recitation: get a friend, family member or someone you know who will listen to your recitation every day. Ideally, get someone who also memories to create a peer pressure system.
- Recipe daily in your salaat what you have memorized. If you forget a part, you will immediately rush to the Quran and correct your mistake and you will never repeat this error.
- Create daily:
A) New storage at the assigned time of day
B) Revision of the previous 7 days, just before starting the new memorization: this is because the quickest thing you forget is the new memorization. And in doing so, will also build the connector between the old and new part that you will memorize. Moreover, it will be a good warming for the brain when you will remember your memory and recite, before entering the actual exercise to make the new memorization.
C) At another time of the day, review those before the last 7 days. The bare minimum should be 4-5 pages.
- Do not jump. To be coherent. Do not try to go to another surah if you find this difficult and respect the command. This way, you will have the satisfaction of having completed a juz rather than leaving some portions here and there.
- The three pieces. Start from the back. Shorter surahs will give you a big boost. You should divide the memorization of the Quran into three parts:
A) Juz 28, 29, 30 or just juz 29, 30
B) Surah Al-Kahf until Juz 28
C) Surat Al-Baqara to Surah Al-Kahf

Hadith on Forgetting The Quran
1) Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“The example of someone who knows the Quran is that of a hobbled camel. If he attends to it, it stays with him. If he lets it go, it escapes”
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5031 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 789)
2) Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“…Habitually recite the Qur’an for it slips from your chest quicker than camels escape”
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5032, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 790)
Hadiths warning against forgetting the Quran
1) Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“The rewards for my Ummah were displayed before me, even [the reward for] the dirt that a man removes from the Masjid. The sins of my Ummah were also shown to me, I have not seen a sin worse than a Surah or Verse of the Qur’an which a man learnt and then forgot”
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2916, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 462. Also see: Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, Hadith: 1297)

Originator of the heavens and the earth, Possessor of such glory, generosity, and honour that is not exceeded, I ask you, O Allah, O Rahman, by Your glory and the light of Your Countenance, to make my heart constant in remembering Your Book as You taught me, and grant me that I recite it in the manner that will make You pleased with me.
