Our Journey as a family towards memorisation of the Qur'aan

Our new Schedule


Assalaamu alaikum,

This is our new schedule I pray Allaah accept it from us, make it easy for us to stick to it and increase upon it and put love in our hearts for it.


Hifdh: Memorise for at least 30 minute per day Sunday-Thursday (Fri and Sat off).  In-shaa Allaah they will get 4-5 lines per day if  focused.

Hifdh prep: listening to the tapes/cds of the surahs with ayaat repeated at relaxation times especially before bed.

Review: Read 5 pages per day of surahs they’ve already memorised so 1/2  hizb.

UPDATE (21/08/2011) for review they now read 10 pages.

General reading: 5 mins per day


Hifdh: Memorise 1 page per day.

Hifdh prep: split the juz in half and while memorising the 1st half , read and/or listen the 2nd half (10 pages ahead) until I meet it in memorisation.  Then move onto the next 10 pages in-shaa Allaah.

Review: Read at least 1-3  juz per day working towards 3 permanently.  Sometimes it will be 3 separate ajzaa but sometimes the same juz read x3.

General reading: 2 1/2 pages per day.


Hifdh: Memorise 5 lines per day.

Hifdh prep: Split the juz into 8 (approx 2 1/2 pages) then while memorising the 1st 8th read and or listen to the 2nd 8th once per day for 7 days or until he meets it in memorisation.   Then move onto the next 8th or 2 1/2  pages in-shaa Allaah.

Review: Read at least 10 pages (1/2 juz) per day.

General Reading: 2 1/2 pages per day.

Wa billaahi tawfeeq.

  1. MashaAllaah this is a tremendous initiative. If memorising one page a day is too much, what do you suggest?

    Also, what is the best method to use when memorising? i.e. read one line over and over again or maybe 5 lines repeatedly etc.


    • Baarakallaahu feekum.
      There is another way of doing it by splitting the page into 3 and memorising roughly 5 lines per day. Depending on where the ayah finishes, some days it might be a little more or less than 5.
      If you like calculations then heres the math (and if you don’t then please go straight to hifdh prep): like this you’ll finish around 2 1/2 pages per week, half a juz every 30 days, a juz every 2 months and 6 ajzaa per year. It would take approx 5 years to complete 30 ajzaa.

      For hifdh prep, you would listen to and/or read the 2 1/2 pages ( the next rubu hizb or from flower to flower in a Uthmani mushaf) ahead x1 everyday for 7 days or 7 times until you meet it in memorisation.
      Example: This week you are memorising Suratul Baqarah 26-43. In the Uthmani type mushaf there is a flower symbol next to ayah 26 and 43. This amount (approx 2 1/2 pages) is a rubu hizb. For prep you would read from ayah 44-50 (the next rubu hizb) everyday for 7 days or until you have memorised up to ayah 43. Then you’d move onto the next rubu hizb. The prep time can be increased, reduced or even removed but it does make things a lot easier when you sit to learn the prepared section.

      You could review a minimum of 5 pages per day but working towards 1 juz per day. This way you are treating yourself as if you already are a Haafidh. For the times when you have an incomplete juz to review you can read and repeat what you do have until it makes up juz which is usually 20 pages e.g if you’ve memorised 5 pages of a juz then you would read those 5 pages x 4 to make them equal to a juz. I also recommend review looking at the mushaf and only not looking when being tested by someone else, our brains are constantly recording what they see memorising the page again and again as we read.

      Regarding my best way to memorise I was going to put it here but its a lot to so I will make a post about it in-shaa Allaah with the full details.

      I hope this helps, and if anything is unclear please let me know,
      May Allaah increase you in beneficial knowledge.
