Ive been battling with myself over the last few years to organise my schedule as it’s increased and then increased again in activity. It’s been and still is, challenging for me as for some reason, I don’t like to follow timetables. It’s like there’s a switch in my brain telling me “rebel rebel” when I see my daily life written out before me lol! Allah aid me. It doesn’t stop me making them though, I still try different ways …so many different ways, to stay on top of things. I pray I find something that works for me one day, other than my poor failing memory.
I don’t have a lot of time for myself these days so my new review schedule somewhat tailored to work with this. I am also the type of person that tends to mentally record what I hear more than what I read so I like to use audio a lot. It works well for me alhamdulillaah.
My main aim at the moment is reinforcement.
I take approximately 2 juz and download the audios for each surah. I try to use the reciters that I learned that particular surah with as, the way they read it is usually still recorded in my mind from it’s hifdh (If that can’t be done then someone I like to listen to works great). Then everyday for the next 30days, I try my best to listen to these surahs. Using time when my body is busy but my mind no , works best for me. Examples of this kind of activity are cooking, cleaning, ironing commuting etc, the type of thing that can be done on auto pilot.
Along with this, 2pages are chosen every day from the same 2 juz and each page read between 10 and 20 times each. It doesn’t take too long as you tend to get faster the more you read it. The following day the next 2pages from the 2juz are read in repetition.
It would look like this:
For June I have chosen and downloaded juz Amma and juz Tabarak.
Monday 1St June I will listen to mp3 audios of both juz. Later on that day I will read 2pages or all of surah al Mulk. I will read each page 10times totalling the amount of approx 20pages.
Tuesday 2nd June I will listen to both juz again and this time, Surah Al Qalam reading each page 10 times each.
Wednesday 3rd June I will listen to both juz again but this time I’ll read Surah Al Haaqah repeating each page 10times.
This will carry on for another 30days.
I still do normal reading in order through the mushaf from Al Baqarah to Al Nas but the amount varies day to day.
Time doesnt permit me to read from memory to anyone at the moment but this may change one day. For now I’ll keep preparing for that using this method, Allah make it easy for me ameen
May Allah make it easy for us all and bless our time so that we are able to achieve maximum benefit from every day of our lives doing things that please Him azza wa jalla aameen
