Can you give some tips for memorizing the

00:00:02--> 00:00:03

Quran? And,

00:00:04--> 00:00:05

my son is in the crowd. Please listen

00:00:05--> 00:00:06

attentively.

00:00:09--> 00:00:11

The Quran is the word of Allah Subhanahu

00:00:11--> 00:00:14

Wa Ta'ala. A person's got to realize that

00:00:15--> 00:00:18

in order for you to hold the word

00:00:18--> 00:00:20

of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala,

00:00:20--> 00:00:23

the miracle that was given to Rasulullah Sallahu

00:00:23--> 00:00:25

Alaihi Wasallam and to this ummah. Again,

00:00:26--> 00:00:29

you yourself have got to work on your

00:00:29--> 00:00:30

relationship with the creator.

00:00:30--> 00:00:33

Do you think that a person who's constantly

00:00:33--> 00:00:34

involved in,

00:00:35--> 00:00:37

sin and that which displeases Allah subhanahu wa

00:00:37--> 00:00:40

ta'ala, do you think that memorizing the Quran

00:00:40--> 00:00:42

will be made easy for him? It may

00:00:42--> 00:00:44

not. So you've got to work on that

00:00:44--> 00:00:47

relationship with the Creator himself. That's point number

00:00:47--> 00:00:48

1. Point number 2

00:00:49--> 00:00:50

is hith and memorization,

00:00:51--> 00:00:53

in my opinion, is repetition.

00:00:54--> 00:00:55

The more you repeat,

00:00:56--> 00:00:58

the more you're able to gather the verses

00:00:58--> 00:00:59

of Allah

00:01:00--> 00:01:01

And sometimes we hear

00:01:01--> 00:01:03

of people, or we think when somebody tells

00:01:03--> 00:01:06

us repeat the verse 10 times, 20 times,

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

30 times, we think it's too much.

00:01:08--> 00:01:09

And there's those who repeat

00:01:10--> 00:01:10

304101000

00:01:11--> 00:01:13

times, trust me, it's not a lot, it's

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

not

00:01:14--> 00:01:17

a lot. If after you've developed your relationship

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

with Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala, it's repetition, and

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

you constantly

00:01:21--> 00:01:23

repeat, and don't think that it's too much

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

to repeat. Also, what's important to mention is

00:01:27--> 00:01:28

holding

00:01:28--> 00:01:30

what or maintaining what you've memorized.

00:01:31--> 00:01:34

At times a person may be made to

00:01:34--> 00:01:34

forget,

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

due

00:01:36--> 00:01:38

to some of the scholars mentioned sin, or

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

at times it's human nature.

00:01:40--> 00:01:44

And by you going back to revise and

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

go over those verses again, it's also an

00:01:46--> 00:01:49

act of worship. If It's a constant work

00:01:49--> 00:01:52

in progress for every single one of us,

00:01:52--> 00:01:52

and

00:01:53--> 00:01:56

the person who embarks on this journey becomes

00:01:56--> 00:01:57

closer to the word of

00:01:58--> 00:02:00

and you find barakah in your life.

00:02:01--> 00:02:01

So,

00:02:02--> 00:02:02

yeah.

00:02:03--> 00:02:03

Allah

00:02:05--> 00:02:07

grant us all the ability to be

00:02:08--> 00:02:10

and to practice

00:02:10--> 00:02:13

upon what we memorize. At times, people may

00:02:13--> 00:02:16

have memorized the Quran. However, they don't know

00:02:16--> 00:02:17

or they're unable

00:02:18--> 00:02:21

to extract one lesson from what they've memorized.

00:02:21--> 00:02:24

And the point of this Quran, obviously, we

00:02:24--> 00:02:24

recite,

00:02:25--> 00:02:28

we memorize, and we've got to understand, we've

00:02:28--> 00:02:30

got to ponder and reflect over the verses

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

and put it into practice. What's the point

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

in knowing the whole Quran

00:02:34--> 00:02:38

and your character and conduct is completely opposite

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

of what the Quran

00:02:40--> 00:02:40

teaches

00:02:41--> 00:02:42

rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam taught us.

00:02:41--> 00:02:42

rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam taught us.
