How to memorize Quran easily? 15 steps

“And We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to
understand and remember, but is there any that will
[al-Qamar: 17] memorize Quran easily!

Indeed, reciting the Qur’aan and memorising it has benefits that
cannot be counted, as for the causes and reasons that aid one in
memorising Qur’an, then there are many but I shall briefly
mention the most importance ones here:



1- Du’aa-memorize Quran easily

Du’aa is from the greatest causes that will aid you in memorisation
because as the beloved, the chosen one (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) has
said, “Du’aa is worship.” And ordered us to have (certainty) that the
du’aa will be answered. He said, “Call unto Allaah in certainty and know
that Allaah does not answer the heedless and inattentive heart.” So,
increase in du’aa – that Allaah `azza wa jall makes you from the people
of Qur’aan, because as it is said, ‘whoever persists knocking at the door,
it’s bound to open for him.

2- Cleansing of the soul from bad akhlaaq

Learning the Qur’aan is worship of the heart, prayer in secret and
drawing closer to Allaah azza wa jall, and just like the fact that the prayer
is not valid except with outward tahaarah (purity) of the body, clothes and
place of prayer… the inner acts of worship – of the heart – are not valid
except with the purification of the heart from hypocrisy, deception, filth,
malice and envy, enmity and hatred – and those are the impurities of the
heart, soul and inner being. The Noble Qur’aan is like a crop/plantation, it
does not grow except in good, fertile soil. As for land that is salty or
deprived, then no produce will come forth and if some things do come
out, then they will not grow and if they do grow, they will not produce
fruit and even if they do produce fruit, it will not be of good quality. So
the Qur’aan will not grow or produce fruit except in a good, pure andrighteous heart. Due to this, it is incumbant upon the student of
Qur’aan that he should be clean and pure from these bad characteristics
and adorn himself with good, honourable and generous characteristics
like truthfulness, honesty, sincerity, and in a nutshell, all that faith

3- Dedicating a specific time for Hifdh

From the things that will aid you in the memorisation of Qur’aan is that
you dedicate a specific time towards hifdh and you inform your
brothers/sisters that you will be busy during this time so that no-one can
preoccupy you from your hifdh.
4- Have a companion to assist you in continuing the hifdh
It is upon you to choose a righteous companion to help you in
memorising the Qur’aan and create an honourable competition in hifdh
between you and him until your goals reach a high rank and you start to
feel that there is someone competing and preceding you in this good act.

5- Reading the Tafseer of the verses you wish to memorise

From the things which assist you in hifdh is that you read the tafseer
(exegesis) of the verses that you want to memorise because understanding
its meaning will give concrete to it in the mind.

6- Gradual progression in hifdh

You must have gradual progression in hifdh al-Qur’aan, and not to hasten
in memorization until you are able to do so – so do not burden your soul
with more than it can take. Rather you must choose a portion which you
are able to memorise every day and do not go over that limit.

7- Adhere to a proficient Shaykh with whom you memorise

This is an extremely important matter, so that you can memorise Qur’aan
without mistakes. Were you to memorise the Qur’an on your own then
perhaps you might err in the recitation of some verses and were you tomemorise it like that (with those mistakes), then it’s difficult to correct

8- Adhering to one mushaf (copy of the Qur’aan)

From the things that will aid you in hifdh is sticking to one specific copy
of the Qur’an that you read and memorise from until you remember the
position of the verses and chapters.

9- Pray with what you have memorised

It is upon you to strive with your utmost to pray the sunan and nawafil
(superogatory) prayers with what you’ve memorised on that day and what
a delight it would be were you to also pray the mandatory prayers with it,
so that you can give ground to your hifdh. memorize Quran easily!

10- Qiyam al-Lail (the Night Prayer)

The night prayer, particularly in the last third of the night, is at a blessed
time wherein Allah `azza wa jall, descends to the lower heaven in a
manner befitting His Majesty and He calls to His slaves – as is reported in
the Sahihayn – ‘Who will call upon Me so I can answer him?
Who will ask Me so I can give him? Who will seek My forgiveness so I
can forgive him?’ So ask your Lord, `azza wa jall, to forgive your sins
and to honour you with memorisation of His Book.

11- Do not prioritise anything over the Qur’an

If you embark on seeking knowledge, start first of all by reviewing the
portion of Qur’an which you’ve memorised, then after that, busy yourself
with the rest of the sciences so that you do not prioritise the sciences of
the Deen (Islam) over the most noble of sciences which is the sciences of
the Qur’an.

12- Penalise yourself for shortcomings

If you fall short from your memorisation or daily recitation of Qur’an,
then penalise yourself with something from the mubahaat (permissible)
for example by fasting, night prayer and charity.

13- Do not start memorisation except after learning the rules of recitation

Never embark on memorisation of the Qur’an until you have proficiency
in recitation and perfection in the rules of tajweed (art of recitation) so
that when you do memorise, your memorisation will be free from

14- Know that hifdh al-Qur’an is the first step to seeking knowledge

A Muslim can never attain knowledge of any science from the sciences of
the Shari’ah without Qur’an, for the Qur’an opens up for you the doors to
knowledge – indeed it opens up for you the doors to all goodness in this
world and the Next.

Prophet Muhammad the greatest man

15- Envision the delights of Paradise and the Punishment of the

If you knew that the Qur’an is a cause for your salvation from the
punishment of the grave and a cause for your salvation from the
punishment of the Hellfire… rather if you knew that on the Day of
Judgment you will rise and ascend through the ranks of Paradise with the
Qur’an, then this should urge you to memorise the Qur’an from start to
finish so that you may reach the highest levels of Paradise. May Allah
make us and you from the people of Qur’an.
Beloved brothers and sisters, Learn the Qur’an before
it’s lifted from the Pages and the Hearts.
