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


This important step is one that can not be neglected.  Our eeman is the one thing that will carry us through this journey of ours.  It is the very thing that when high, will make it easier for us and will even seem to speed things up for us, will make us more focussed among other benefits.  When its low the journey seems harder, slower, even boring, we become easily distracted from it, until we just lose interest completely.

Eeman increases with obedience to Allaah (worship) and decreases with obedience to the Shaytaan so we must be mindful of the things we do.  Guard it carefully like the treasure that it is and always seek to increase it.  If we’re not doing anything to make it increase then the likelihood is that it is decreasing and Allaah knows best.

May Allaah increase us in eeman and good actions (that are in accordance with the authentic sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah salallaahu alaihi wa sallam) and good companions that call us towards good and make us ourselves good companions, and protect us from the evil within ourselves and from evil companions that call us towards bad and protect us from being evil companions to those around us.

  1. JazakAllahu khayra sister. Really enjoying these hifdh tips. They really are points to reflect on.

    One thing i noticed is that doing hifdh really makes you more aware (and i guess you need to be) about sinning. So you might be about to do/say something bad and suddenly you remember that if you do you’ll suffer in your hifdh. Or if you are finding a particular section hard or things are not going so well the first thing you think is what have done I done wrong?

    This ‘awareness’ i found to be one of the greatest blessings of hifdh. Prior to hifdh i guess i didnt really reflect on my personal development and just went through life, only stopping when my iman took a real blow. But with hifdh because the consequences of sinning become apparant right there and then it forces to you constantly relflect and audit your actions.

    May Allah allow us to guard our iman and increase us in khayr.

    • baarakallaahu feeki sis, what you said is so true and very important subhan Allaah. Jazaakillaahu khayran I really appreciate all of your input may Allaah bless you.
