Yesterday performance results of memorisation weren’t that great.
Alhamdulillah, I did managed to read over the two lines to reinforce my tajweed and makhraj. I didn’t however go over the meaning of the two lines word word as I normally do using Quran.com. I was greatly distracted by so many task both at work and home. Prioritisation is now getting more difficult. As I expected to happened when I started committing to this goal 28 days ago. Shaytaan will always be there to try his best to distract and influence me as much as possible from getting my results.
What I learned is that with so many tasks that I needed to get done, I was trying to do everything and getting as much done as possible. There are only 24 hours in a day. I need to focus on what brings value to my activities and affairs.
If at this time of writing is the end of the day, What would bethe most pain if it weren’t done by end of the day? With so many things to do today, I put priority in making sure that 1 of 3 daily outcomes, I fully memorised and understand what these verses means.
- Not memorising these two lines of Surah Al-A’lâ Verse 7-10
Outcome 2 and 3 are work and personal related matters which I need to get done by end of the day. InshaAllah. Results are in the hand of Allah SWT, whether I achieve it or not it is beyond my control. What is important is the action I took to get there. Taking action is putting myself in control. If my intention is correct doing this for Allah SWT sake, then all my time, energy, money and effort will be counted as an Ibadah.
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.
