since my son and daughter finished their hifdh things have just felt different for me. I’m not talking about the supreme elation that some speak of when their children complete their hifdh but rather, I feel…antsy or….restless…I can’t really put a word to it but I’ll try to explain. (more…)
everyday we all have a reason to wake and be grateful but today, I am feeling especially blessed.
The choice that we’ve made to try to memorise the Qur’aan is one that occupies my mind throughout the day. Not in the sense that I am always busy with it, how I wish that were the case, but rather these days, I am always thinking and worrying about it. As I finish different tasks and/or become preoccupied with other things…I keep stopping to think “when will I get a moment to stop and do my hifdh?, when will I get a chance to get my mushaf?, will this be another day that I don’t get to do as much as I’d like to?” (more…)
These are some of the things that I’ve found to be really helpful. I hope that they can be of someuse to somebody out there.
First and foremost, we make dua to Allaah to make our task easy for us and to accept it from us as a good deed. I won’t include this as a step as this is something that as muslims is an integral part of all of our lives as we know, without Allaah permission we are unable to do anything.
1. Realistic Goal setting
Sit down and decide exactly what it is that you’d like to do. How much you’d like to memorise be it 1 page, 1 juz etc Set your amount in writing so that its clear in your mind. (more…)
I mentioned before in my last depressing post that I was going to try a new method to sabotage my self-sabotaging ways!
Here it is……My Weekly Planner.
Admittedly its nothing special. It’s just a normal 7 day table for my daily activities, but the way I use it helps me a lot. (more…)
Wow….I love it when I find something good on the internet and this website is exactly that. I am currently memorising without a teacher and it can be quite challenging at times to maintain motivation among other things. I was sitting in my house looking for a way to find a hifdh partner and then I came across this site maasha Allaah! (more…)
just a quick update. The children haven’t started any new hifdh yet. Since they arrived at 7 ajzaa (Allahumma baarik alayhimaa) we have taken the past 2 weeks to review everything they have learned. Reviewing 1/2 juz per day we should be done by the end of next week in-shaa Allaah. We are also trying to get used to reading a juz per day and alhamdulillaah it seems as though we have finally found a good time to do this.
May Allaah bless them.
This is another method of memorisation but it’s not from the book “Kayfa Tahfathul Qur’aan Al Kareem” By Dr Yahya Al Gawthaany.
The method we have today is:
How To Memorise a Page In 30mins/The Procrastinator Special.
People procrastinate in different areas of their lives and for different reasons. Unfortunately, I do it when I have to memorise. I do it sometimes because I’m tired but the main reason it happens is because I’m a perfectionist.
Sounds strange I know but let me explain…… (more…)
