RAMADAN GIST – DAY 9: Digesting the Qur’an – Part 2


By Amatul Qafaar




This is the second part of how to digest the Quran. In yesterday’s article, we talked about trying to understand the Qur’an by getting a translation of the Qur’an as it is believd that it will help us understand the Book more. In today’s article, we will be sharing the next tip on how to appreciate the beauty and the miraculous nature of the Qurian.

Memorizing the Quran

Allah protects the Qur’an in the hearts of the Muslims. A large portion of the Muslim nation memorize the Qur’an. In fact, most of them start their life with the Qur’an before they even go to the secular/western schools. However, the love they have for the Qur’an fades away as they get older – most especially when they were supposed to have a deeper love for the Qur’an.

Memorizing the Quran helps us to give extra attention to the Ayats we are memorizing, and with the translations, it makes the Quran sit in our minds and actively change our behavior.

A sound and living heart is a heart that is filled with Qur’an, and anything but memorizing it can actually turn any heart into “sound” and “alive”.

It is important here to note that you don’t necessarily need to memorize the full package, neither do you need to pressure yourself to memorize more than you have ability for. All you need to do is to at least memorize one Ayah per day and this will add up to fill your heart with the Qur’an.

Times to take advantage for memorizing the Qur’an

Picking one Ayah after Fajr every day is a good way to start the habit and the journey of your Qur’an memorization. By using this style, you will memorize 30 Ayats by the end of each month and that will eventually lead to you memorizing the whole Qur’an without you feeling overwhelmed. Definitely, this will even help you to retain your Qur’an lastingly, in sha Allah.

It might take you ages to have the full 30 Juz’ in your heart, but having them all will be worthwhile and cause worth striving for.

More so, review the Ayah before you go to sleep and end your day a very good note, God willing.

These two stipulated times are very essential. I have done it, I am doing it and I will continue to do it as it has worked for me. Try it too and you will surely see the difference, insha Allah.

That is for today’s tip, I hope it will benefit you, in sha Allah.

Until next time insha Allah, have a blessed Ramadan with the Qur’an being your faithful company.

Wasalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh
