It’s no secret, the journey to memorisation is usually quite a long one. It takes patience, perseverance and more. I pray Allaah make it easy for those that desire it. Allaah has blessed us with so many reminders to help encourage us, but when feeling down, it can be easy to forget to read these things or the action of going to find them can seem hard.
Now, imagine if every time you or your children felt slow and unmotivated in your Hifdh, all you had to do was open one little book and it (this book), would instantly make you feel excited again! It would make you feel motivated, renewed, revived revitalised… all of the good “re” words ha ha! Well, that’s what we tried to do with our book of “Hifdh-spiration”. It’s a collection of things we use to inspire and motivate our Hifdh.
It’s not just something for children, it can be used for adults too!
It’s basically a blank note-book. This book is basically something that can enable you to see your goal of hifdh of the Qur’aan. You can have several sections in it to collect the different types of things that motivate you. Here are some examples:
- Ayaat from the Qur’aan
- Beneficial Ahaadeeth on the good rewards
- Excerpts from poems about hifdh
- Graphically written visualisations of what it will be like when you complete.
- The things that you’d like to do once you’ve completed (like teaching etc).
- Prizes that you may get or pictures of toys (more specific to children)
- Stories from other huffaath
- Advice from teachers
- Advice you have written to yourself
- Lists of goals
- Ways the shaytaan try to decieve you
My children at the moment keep adding pictures of food lol, they must enjoy the parties that they have! They also have pictures of toys that they want…you can see where this is going right. Sometimes they draw in the book or stick cuttings from old catalogues. It’s nice to see them getting excited as they add new things. I try to give them the ahaadeeth of the benefits to copy out so that they don’t just think it’s all about parties etc.
I haven’t made one for myself yet but I am definitely planning to in-shaa Allaah….I dont know why I keep delaying it…. maybe I’ll do it today.
May Allaah make it easy for us all and accept it from us aameen.
