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



Assalaamu alaikum

Welcome to The Hifdh Club.

The main reason we decided to start this blog was because we wanted to try and record our journey.  We wanted to find a way to look back  one day at the steps we are taking now, maybe to use as a reference guide for other children, ours or maybe even somebody elses.    We also thought it would be nice to  share our story with you as a family trying to memorise the Qur’aan.  We wanted to write about our successes and our woes so that you would know that you were not alone and would maybe be able to avoid mistakes we made or feel comfort in knowing that there are others doing the same thing as you .

By us I mean myself , my husband and our 2 small children (5yrs and 7yrs).

Our hope that maybe we (you and I)  can help each other with our journeys towards memorising the Qur’aan.

We will be linking to, uploading and writing about anything that we find that can help, especially for Mothers and their children and Fathers with little time.

If you have any suggestions please leave a comment we appreciate all the advice we can get.

Finally, please bare with me.   I’m not the most beautiful writer in the world but I’m going to try my best to at least make sure that everything I write is clear and easy to understand so it can help you.

Jazaakumullaahu khayran

    Assalamu alaikum sister,

    I stumbled across your blog mashaAllah tabarakAllah and am so happy to have found it. I myself have a dream one day to memorise Quran and I still have hope to reach that dream even if it takes me decades. My 7 year old daughter has been memorizing since she was 3 mashaAllah and we have decided to really go for it and push her to complete in the next 2 years bi’idhnillah. I guess I have a few questions for you – how old are your children? Is there a post on your blog about how they do their hifdh and murajaah? My husband is a haafidh mashaAllah and he is my daughter’s teacher. However, a lot of the revision falls on me and as a revert, my forte is not Quran. I look forward to hearing from you inshaAllah. Umm Raiyaan

    • Wa alaikumus salaam wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh Umm Raiyaan, by the permission of Allaah I will be making dua for you and your daughter to complete and retain the Qur’aan with ease and that it be a blessing for you in this life and in the hearafter. May Allaah bless your family abundantly, its so nice to hear other people with the same dreams aspirations and their determination. You become like my companions that encourage me on my journey as it can be a bit hard when you are alone. So I am more happy that you found me. My children are 7yrs and 5years old maasha Allaah. We just posted a new review schedule I put the link for it here <a href="https://thehifdhclub.wordpress.com/2012/03/10/new-review-schedule/” title=”New Review Schedule” rel=”nofollow”> The original post that gave more detail is here <a href="https://thehifdhclub.wordpress.com/2011/07/09/our-new-schedule/“ title=”Our new Schedule” rel=”nofollow”>

      Sorry to put all of these links in here like this but I hope this helps and I also hope that I have posted them properly as its the first time I have put a link in a comment lol. I am also a revert to Islaam alhamdulillaah revision can be tricky especially when you have children. I am in the process of trying to make it a habit to get it done first thing in the morning before everything as I find this helps me the most but I still struggle with it. The thing that has helped me the most was having the children on the same surahs as me as we now review together so we have our own mini Qur’aan circle. I hope this helps but anything I haven’t made clear please feel free to mail me back.
      Take care

      P.S just in case my links dont come out properly pelase check the side categories for “how to memorise” and “our progress”

    MashaAllah tabarakAllah – that really is amazing mashaAllah. May Allah reward you for your determination. Ameen. Do the children go to school? How do they find hifdh and the school hours? In total, how much time do they spend doing hifdh and how much time on murajaah? You really have inspired me mashaAllah. May Allah reward you. Ameen.

    • We teach them from home at the moment, I prefer this for them. They spend about 30mins revewing a juz per day (we read quite fast a bit like Shuraim) and another 30mins in a formal lesson for hifdh but they do most of the work in their room maybe about 1hr per day just listening to Qur’aan on a CD. I always make a CD for them with the current surah they’re memorising and the surah that is coming after it for them to listen to. They usually play it when they’re reading or before bed when they’re calm (ish). They also play it on the little mp3 players they have. It helps them to prepare for the formal lesson as they just soak it in maasha Allaah. You’re made me smile maasha Allaah I’m so glad its been able to help you somewhat its nice for me to end my day on such a positive note I really needed that baarakallaahu feeki!

    Alhamdulillah. JazakhaAllahu khairan sister. We also home educate mashaAllah. Mmm… I wonder if we know each other/have met? Are you in London? Am going to put some time aside inshaAllah and have a look through your blog. May Allah reward you. Ameen.

    • Allaah knows best. I really do hope you find something that can be of some benefit to you and your children again baarakallaahu feeki for reading and your duas, we need and appreciate them very much.

    Jazakumullah Khayr.

    • wa alaikumus salaam warahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh, baarakaallaahu feekum this is so nice maasha Allaah I never saw it before. I was even looking for something like this to look at with my children subhan Allaah. Allah never leaves us without the things we need or want Allaahu akbar. Jazaakumullaahu khayran again you have already helped us so much in 1 week may Allaah make your scale heavy in good deeds on yawmul qiyaamah ameen.

  8. Wa iyyaaki, dear sister, and Aameen to your du’aa.

    Assalaamu aleykum sister,
    Alhumdulillah! I just came across your blog. May Allah bless you for this very useful blog. Jazakallah Khayran. My kids (2 boys and girl) are I are working hard on our memorisation, so it is very encouraging and heartwarming to read your posts. In sha Allah we will keep checking back for more.

    • wa alaikumus salaam wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh Umm Shareef baarakallaahu feeki, I really appreciate you coming and leaving such a lovely comment too jazaakillaahu khayran ukhtee ❤

    I am a mother who is desperate to support her teenage son to finish his hifz. I would be sooo grateful if I could get in touch with you for more intensive guidance.

  16. Was salaam
    The good news is, he hasn’t given up, the bad news is that he is making little or no progress.
    It is difficult to keep a balance between motivation, encouragement and badgering him, especially as he is at a critical time of his school studies as well. He is currently in the second year of his A levels so there is a lot of pressure on him. I believe even if he makes slow progress, very slow, it is still necessary so as he does not lose what he has already acquired as well as gaining benefit from the continued connection with the quran.
    I would still like to get some one to one ‘tuition’ for him, but the traditional madressah style is not suitable for him. Your guidance would be most welcome.

    Many thanks
