Our beloved Prophet ‫ص ّلى هللا عليه وس ّلم‬
made this beautiful du’aa
‫الله ّم اجعل القرآن ربيع قلبي‬
“O Allah! Make the Qur’an
the spring of my heart”
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
7
“If indeed the Qur’an was the Spring of our
hearts:
* Our hearts would be in bloom always with
the freshness of nature's newness & nature's
order;
* the green that cools our eyes;
* the fragrances that perfume our scent;
* the fruits that delight our taste & nurture our
bodies; and
* the flowers that remind us of life's bounty
and delicacy.” (Written by Hamza Yusuf in one of his articles)

So, let us begin with this du’aa:
‫الله ّم اجعل القرآن ربيع قلوبنا‬
O Allah! Make the Qur’an
the spring of our hearts
Aameen
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com

1. Make your intention pure and
sincere.
It should be only to seek the Pleasure
of Allah and none else!
You should NOT have the motive to
seek name, fame or money.
REMEMBER one of the three people
who will become FUEL TO THE FIRE
OF JAHANNUM, according to a hadith,
are the Islamic scholars with bad
intention!
First Thing First!
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
10
2. After making your intention pure,
make Du’aa to Allah. WITHOUT the help
of Allah you can’t do anything!
BELIEVE in the power of Du’aa.
Allah Knows the secrets of our hearts. If
you sincerely seek Allah’s help, He will
definitely open ways and make things
easy for you.
This is in fact a Promise of Allah and He
never lets His Seekers down!
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
11
3. Get a good Mus’haf, a good copy of the
Qur’an.
The Arabic Script must be clear and you
must be comfortable reading it.
4. Ensure that you keep this Mus’haf till
the end. Changing the Mus’haf especially
when you are determined to memorize is
a bad idea!
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
12
5. DO NOT START memorizing without
getting to know the Rules of Recitation
and Pronunciation.
(Remember it is easy to memorize but
difficult to forget. If you memorize an
ayah and later you come to know that it
was a wrong pronunciation then learning
the right pronunciation and the right way
will be difficult)
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
13
YOU NEED TO CHECK YOUR WAY OF
RECITATION & PRONUNCIATION in front
of a scholar who is well-versed in the art
of Qur’anic Recitation.
EVEN WHEN you want to memorize on
your own through audio/internet, you
STILL NEED TO CHECK and cross-check
your way of Recitation. This is very
important!
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
14
6. Wudoo (ie. Ablution) and complete
purity is necessary as you are going to
memorize the Glorious Book of Allah.
Your ATTITUDE & APPROACH to the
Qur’an must be entirely different from the
approach you adopt towards other
books!
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
15
7. Place has its own impact on the mind.
Select a comfortable place where there is
no distraction so that you can focus on
memorization with utmost care and
concentration.
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
16
8. Allot a particular time.
Select a time which suits you the most. It is
better to earmark early morning time as mind is
fresh and receptive. Moreover, the Qur’an
recited during Fajr is ‘witnessed’ by the
Angels!
Don’t do any work other than memorization
during this time.
Strictly and sincerely stick on to your daily
time schedule! This is a secret behind effective
memorization.
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
17
9. Apportion the daily number of
verses to memorize
You should specify the amount you can bear
daily, be it a given number of verses, one or two
pages, or a quarter juz.
After deciding the target, try your utmost to
achieve the target.
Due to some genuine reason if you are not able
to achieve the target, don’t get upset. Instead try
to make it up the following day along with the
day’s quota.
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
18
10. Recite loudly
You should recite aloud, first to follow the
Prophetic Sunnah and second to perfect
your memorization. Intoning the Qur’an is
endeared to the hearing and helps in
memorizing, as it gets the tongue familiar
with a given tune and an error is easily
identified when the usual tune varies in one
way or another. When this happens, the
tongue feels the variation and stops to
correct the recitation.
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
19
11. Do Not Move to the Next Portion Till
You Master the Present One
You should not move to the next portion
till you master the previous one.
One way to perfect your portion is to make
a habit to recite it during your daily Salah
(Prayers).
In this way, memorizing the Qur’an will
be easy and possible for everyone,
even if one seems busy.
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
20
12. Connect its Beginning to its End
You should connect a Surah from its beginning
to its end, and your tongue should move with it
smoothly and easily without exerting your mind
in remembering the verses and continuing the
recitation. Rather, your memorization should be
as smooth as water and you should recite it
without any faltering whatever. It should be like
the case when one recites Al-Fatihah without
any effort, and this, of course, is due to its
being frequently repeated and recited.
The point is that you should try to fix the whole Surah in
your mind, connected and smooth, and not to move to
the next till you have
memorized it perfectly.

21
13. Pay Attention to Similarities
The Qur’an has 6236 verses,
around 2000 of which are similar in one
way or another. In some locations the
similarity is exact, while in others there
may be a difference of just one letter or
one or a few words.
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
22
Two examples of similarities
One must be very careful in noticing the words
beginning with ‘waw’ and ‘fa’. Note the
difference in two consecutive verses of
‫سورة الضحى‬
‫فأ َّما ا ْليتِيم فال ت ْقه ْر‬
‫السائِل فال ت ْنه ْر‬
َّ ‫وأ َّما‬
Note the systematic addition of words in
three different verses of ‫سورة الكهف‬
‫قال إِ َّنك لنْ ت ْستطِ يع معِي ص ْب ًرا‬
‫قال أل ْم أقُلْ إِ َّنك لنْ ت ْستطِ يع معِي ص ْب ًرا‬
23
‫نْ ت ْستطِ يع معِي ص ْب ًرا‬yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
‫قال أل ْم أقُلْ لك إِ َّنك ل‬
Hence, one who memorizes the Qur’an
should pay great attention to the similar
verses.
The more one pays attention to these
similarities, the firmer his memorization
gets.
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
24
14. Follow Up Frequently
After memorizing the Qur’an, if you leave it
without revising and keeping in touch, it
will flee from you and you’ll rapidly forget
it. So, one must follow up frequently and
continuously persevere in revising and
recalling in order to preserve in one’s
memory. The Prophet, peace and
blessings be upon him, said, “The
example of the person who knows the
Qur’an by heart is like the owner of tied
camels. If he keeps them tied, he will
control them, but if he releases them, they
will run away.”
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
25
The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him,
also said, “Keep on reciting the Qur’an, for, by
Him in Whose Hand my life is, the Qur’an runs
away (is forgotten) faster than camels that are
released from their tying ropes.” (Narrated by
Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
This means that one who memorizes the whole
Qur’an should read at least a whole juz’ per
day.
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
26
15. Understand What You Memorize
One of the greatest aides in memorizing is to
understand the verses and recognize the
relationship between them.
CAUTION: However, you Must Not give
more emphasis on understanding during the
course of memorization. The one who depends
mostly on understanding is liable to forget and
stop as soon as his mind is not attentive. This
happens mostly during long recitations.
yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
27
16. Try your utmost to put into practice
What you study and memorize of the
Qur’an, try to practice it in your life.
The Qur’an is Guidance par excellence.
The real meanings of the Qur’an come to
fore only when the believer implements
the teachings in one’s life.
