Updated Routine (Mummy) 

Bismillaah… 

Assalaamu alaikum, 

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. 

Schedule:

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

Update 29th Ramadhan 1437

Bismillah…

Assalaamu Alaikum,

Subhan Allah, it’s been so long since the last post.  I remember the way I felt when I was writing it, I was so full of energy and ideas I felt so inspired and then… I just disappeared.  There are many reasons but ultimately, it was a combination of being busy and very easily distracted.  Admittedly, I’m not a very good multi-tasker.Alhamdulillah, we’re all well and I pray that you all are too Allah bless you all.

I tend to feel a little melancholy towards the end of Ramadhan.  I remember as a new Muslim, I would sit there and visualise  devils being released from their chains* at the stroke of maghrib like some scary movie, ruining my fairytale Ramadhan happiness.  Alhamdulillaah as the years have passed I have stopped the visualisations but the thought still somewhat remains with me….until the Eid Fun begins!

Alhamdulillaah the children have been (more…)

Childrens post Hifdh Progress

Bismillaah…..

Assalaamu alaikum,

Its been so long since I last posted subhan Allah.  I’ve been unwell and it’s really taken its toll on my own progress but alhamdulillaah getting better now and hope to pick up the pace with my hifdh bi ithnillah.

We’re facing a big challenge with the children now as the long-term work has begun.  We’ve been trying hard to maintain their enthusiasm while trying not to push them or make them feel pressured and that is not an easy task and isn’t always successful. The most important thing when this happens is to be able to change and adapt things to suit you all and not be too rigid in any routine. (more…)

Update: My New Routine (Mummy)

He was so nervous that he was itchy all over and it stopped as soon as he finished subhan Allaah!
