How to Memorize the Qur’an (Part I)

Fear the Dunya

A Practical Method

Choosing a Suitable Time

The student must choose a suitable time for memorization and the most ideal time is after Fajr, after having completed the morning adhkaar (words of remembrance). The student of the Qur’aan must strive and struggle to change his / her sleeping habits and to make the very best usage of their time, with discipline, scheduling and determination.
