Memorizing the Quran is one of the best practices and wants to be achieved by all Muslims, because memorizing the Quran has many virtues one of which is that one day in heaven will be given a high degree.
Even the memorization of the Qur’an can give a crown in heaven for both people to know and free from the fire of hell.
But as we already know together that memorizing the Quran is not an easy job, even sometimes to memorize a single letter takes a long time can.
Sometimes it is not uncommon for memorized letters to not last long to memorize outside the head. If it is so the desire to memorize the Quran is sometimes just a mere desire.
Therefore, if we really want to memorize the Qur’an, we should start learning to make good use of time. Find the best way to realize that desire and most importantly strengthen the intention so that what we want to do can last a long time or we can do consistently.
1. Sincere intentions because Of Allah SWT
The most important thing when wanting to start memorizing the Qur’an is certainly the intention. When you do the wrong intentions, such as showing off eating it could be that it will not materialize.
But, if you intend because of Allah SWT, then fatigue, lazy, and thinking that this is too difficult will not be a barrier.
2. Instill confidence in Memorize the Quran
Once you have straightened your intentions because of Allah SWT, make sure that your self and mind are sure and earnest to memorize the Qur’an.
Instill in your mind that memorizing the Qur’an is easy, so you will memorize it easily.
3. Choose a memorization method in Memorize the Quran
There are two methods of memorizing the Quran, namely memorizing per page or memorizing per verse.
If you choose to memorize per page, read the Qur’an one page 3-10 times slowly with tajwid and makhraj clear and correct.
However, when memorizing per verse the concept of memorization is not much different from per page. Read verses 2-10 times, if it is smoothly proceed to the next verse.
Well, when it reaches one page, it’s worth repeating the previous page to strengthen the memorization before moving on to the next page.
4. Read over and over again
Often when you always feel you have memorized enough, then reluctant to repeat it again. Therefore, when you are sure of memorization, never be lazy to repeat the memorization in order to always stick in the memory
5. Consistent with memorization schedule
In order not to fall apart, it’s a good idea to create a schedule or a specific exact schedule to memorize the Koran. And make sure you won’t break that schedule.
6. Be Patient
Well, the sixth point is the most important thing, which is patience. There will probably be a lot of things that will make you disengaged from memorizing the Quran or feeling tired and discouraged because it is too difficult to memorize it.
It was some trials and trials while memorizing the Qur’an. Therefore, reassure yourself with the right intentions, then god willing all trials will be easy to go through.
7. Use one mushaf
For the sake of smooth memorization, it is better to use one mushaf Qur’an because sometimes the structure and appearance of pages of the Qur’an are different. This is because it makes it easier to record images to the brain’s memory.
