The easiest way to memorize the Noble Qur’an….

By: Shaikh ‘Abdul Muhsin Bin Muhammad Al Qaasim an Imaamand Khateeb in the Masjid of Prophet (SallAllaahu alaihi wa sallam).
Translated by: Abu ‘Abdis Salaam Siddiq Al Juyaanee

All praise and thanks belongs to Allah and may the peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and all of his companions.

The following method (for memorizing the Qur’an) is distinguished due to its facilitation of a well-grounded and strong memorization of the entire Qur’an in a relatively short period of time. The following is an example of this method utilizing the first page of Suratul Jumu’ahas an example:

1-Recite the first verse 20 times
2-Recite the second verse 20 times
3-Recite the third verse 20 times
4-Recite the fourth verse 20 times
5-Recite these four verses together 20 times to fortify the order of verses (1-4)
6-Recite the fifth verse 20 times
7-Recite the sixth verse 20 times
8-Recite the seventh verse 20 times
9-Recite the eighth verse 20 times
10-Recite verses five to eight 20 times to fortify the order of verses (5-8)
11-Recite verses one to eight 20 times to solidify the memorization of this page

Similarly, utilize this method for every page of the Qur’an, to proceed to a new page the following day; first start by reciting the previous page 20 times to fortify the memorization of that page, then proceed to memorize the new page utilizing the method I previously mentioned.

And all success is from Almighty Allah.

When you feel like you can’t keep going, turn your heart to Allah and say this: “I can’t. But You can. I’m weak. But You’re strong. Take me in, not because of me—but because of You. Your mercy is stronger than my weakness. Your perfection is greater than my humanness. I beseech You to replace what’s lost, mend what’s broken, and allow my hope in You to kill my despair.

ahlulbaytsahaba:

Out of all the historic shrines in Kashmir the 245-year-old shrine to the Sufi saint Hazrat Shaykh Syed Abdul Qadir Jeelani (Alaihi Al Rehma), also called the Pir Dastgir Sahib, was considered one of the oldest shrine buildings in Srinagar. In an unfortunate event on June 25, 2012, much of this shrine was destroyed by fire after police noticed  a small bit of smoke rising from the building’s roof at 6:30am. Police did say at the time most of the relics inside the shrine were saved as firefighters rushed to save the building without luck. This is considered a tragic loss for many Kashmiris, who continue to morn one of their most beloved religious sites. This video tribute to the memory of this shrine was posted on Youtube by two nomadic adventuresome men from the U.S. and Germany, Tony and Thomas, who were traveling in Srinagar in 2008.

The Valley of Kashmir is world renowned for its snow-clad mountain peaks, orchards of apples and almonds, lush green pastures and meadows, Chinar trees, magnificent lakes, springs and important water bodies like Jhelum, Indus and Chenab, Mughal gardens, handicrafts and tourism, and also elegant Pashmina shawls. But it is equally well-known for being the ‘Pir Waer’, meaning the ‘Alcove of Sufis and Saints’.

It has been related that Muzanī said, “I saw Imām Shāfi‘ī in my dream after his death and asked him: ‘How did Allāh treat you?’ He said, ‘He forgave me because of an invocation of blessing which I made in the book Al-Risāla:
O Allāh, bless our master Muḥammad as many times as those who remember him do so, and bless him as many times as those who neglect to remember him do so.”

MANNERS TOWARDS THE FRIENDS OF ALLAH

After interpreting the verse “Do not hold the Messenger’s calling (you) among you to be like your calling one to the other”(24; 63), Abū Lays (may Allah have mercy upon him) said:

“We also understand from this verse that we should show respect to the teachers. It’s been pointed out that the rights of the teachers and virtuous people should be observed.

This is why when their names are mentioned, and the language does not matter, we should also say things to show our respect. Since we are prohibited to call our biological fathers with their names, think about how disrespectful to specify our spiritual fathers’ names.” 

(Ruḥ al-Bayān, VII, 447)
