Today starts a new milestone. Alhamduillah. I’m most looking forward to start memorising from this Surah onwards. A Surah which I’ve already memorised. It is very easy for me to just skip this Surah and start with the next one.
Starting today I’m just going to stick with the 2 lines rule per day. This will allow me to fully understand the tajweed and makhraj again. You know the feeling when you read this is in Solah and you’re thinking whether it is the right huruf or tajweed you’re reciting. Especially with the makhraj that is in the same or similar position of the tongue.
Looking at my affairs today at work and home, I’m predicting that I’ll be distracted again and not putting full focus on learning these two lines. May Allah make it easy for me today. This is because it is my first day at work after a long Eid break since June 26.
May Allah accept it from me. Ameen.
About This Experiment
This is a personal daily journal entry of Riz Ainuddin, Author of this blog and Maker of IslamAudio app. The intention for this post is to journal the progress made daily to memorise The Noble Qur’an. It all began when a brother at his work shared with him a YouTube video in Ramadan 1438/2017 of a lecture by Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi. In this video Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi shared a story that it is never too late to memorised the entire Qur’an. The inspirational story was of a paediatric doctor, named Dr. Ahmed Nuaina who started at the age where everyone would think it is too late. Now, he is referred to as Shaykh Dr. Ahmed Nuaina. Shaykh Dr. Ahmed Nuaina is perhaps one of the top scholars of Qur’an and recitation alive today. Rizs’ hyphothesis after being motivated by this story, by reciting and reading the Qur’an two lines a day will make him memorise the Qur’an. Also, Journalling his progress in a blog will further enhance his long-term memory and aspiring others to take similar action. May Allah open up the doors and accept it. Ameen.
