Assalaamu Alaikum warahmathullaah Ya Akhawaat
Our sister Amatullaah at Homeschool Diary has initiated a beneficial Project for all of sisters Insha Allaah. May Allaah reward her immensely for this initiation. Please read her post below and let us know what you think about it Insha Allaah! And we could all go forward from there Insha Allaah to please our Lord alone. Since Rmadhaan the Month of Qur'aan is just round the corner this would be a nice project to earn some extra reward if we all can participate and benefit from this Insha Allaah!
Asalamualaikum wa rahmatullah Sisters,
This post is not about my kids but myself and my personal endeavour to try and memorise Quran. I say try because even though I have had the intention to memorise the whole Quran for many many years, the amount I’ve actually memorised is very small. There are probably many reasons for this, sins, lack of effort, lack of consistency, motivation going up and down, not giving enough time to revise so having to constantly back-track and re-memorise stuff that I had already committed to memory. But still after all my failings I still have a burning desire to memorise the Quran. It’s constantly on my mind (even though unfortunately not manifest in my actions).
I’m not the best person to write a motivational piece on memorising Quran, but one of my main motivating factor now is that I have to be what I want my children to become.
So having renewed my intentions, which I ask Allah to make sincerely for His sake, I really want to step up my memorisation efforts and pray that Allah will facilitate it for me and anyone else who wishes to memorise.
An article which I found beneficial is how to organise ones time in memorising:
If other sisters are interested we can record progress on a monthly basis of all sisters wishing to take part…is there anyone who will take the challenge to be what we want our children to become, with the permission of Allah?
