From the Creator of Quran Companion and Founder of How to Memorise the Quran:

Salam ‘Alaykum,

As a Muslim, you already know that the Quran is the best gift that Allah SWT has given to us. It is a miracle, within which is a
perfected and complete guidance.

Yet how many of us have been guilty of at least one of these?:

  • Leaving Allah’s greatest miracle given to mankind, sitting on top of a bookshelf.
  • Reciting the Holy Quran only during Ramadan or special celebration occasions.
  • Turning to the Quran only when we’re afflicted with hardship or sickness.
  • Never reading the entire Quran in our first or native language, ever in our entire life.
  • Repeating the same few surahs in our salah over and over again that it becomes robotic.
  • Memorizing not more than 10, 20 or 30 surahs.
  • Forgetting what we once memorised.
  • Not even understanding what we’ve memorized.

Unfortunately, these are common scenarios happening amongst our Ummah today.

It’s not that we are bad Muslims... We’re just not perfect either -- May Allah SWT forgive us for our errors and shower us with His
mercy. Amin.

The fact is Shaytan will always be there to deceive us, as the Prophet SAW warned us in his last sermon:

“Beware of Shaytan, for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope
that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of
following him in small things.”

And the further Shaytan can take us away from the Quran -- little by little -- the better for him.

Which one of these deceptions have you heard before?

Shaytan will do his utmost best to keep us from turning to the Quran -- whether in recitation, memorization, or understanding. Which one of these deceptions have you heard before?

  • “It’s too hard.”

  • “There’s just too much.”
  • “I’m too slow to learn.”
  • “I’ll do it later.”
  • “My memory is weak.”
  • “I’m not a scholar.”
  • “I don’t have enough free time.”
  • “I can’t read Arabic.”
  • “I don’t understand Arabic.”
  • “I’m just an average person.”
  • “I can’t focus.”
  • “I’m not disciplined.”
  • “How can I memorize a language I don’t understand?”
  • “Maybe I’ll memorize the Quran when the kids are grown up and I’ve retired…”

And so on...

These deceptions prevent us from connecting to the Quran, which is why many of us only tend to pull out the Quran during festive or special occasions, or when we are afflicted by trials.

In doing so, we end up losing out on so much! For developing a relationship with the Quran is what will protect us in the grave and elevate us in Jannah.

Prophet Muhammad SAW said:

“The Quran will come on the Day of Resurrection (to intercede for its Companion) and will say, “O my Lord, adorn him!”. He will then be crowned with a crown of nobility. Thereafter the Quran will plead, “O my Lord, increase him!”. He will then be clothed in a garment of nobility. Thereafter the Quran will beg, “O my Lord, be pleased with him!”. Allah will then be pleased with him. After that, he will be told, “Recite and ascend (the levels of Jannah)! And with each ayah [that you recite], you will gain another good deed.”

[Al-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, Ibn Hibban, Al-Hakim, Bayhaqi, Ibn Abi Shaybah]

So now, you have a choice to make.

You can listen to Shaytan’s deceptions, OR you can build a close relationship with the Quran, every single day for the rest of your life.

If you wanted to build a close relationship with someone, what would you do? Would you only turn up on their doorstep during festive celebrations? Would you only visit them when you needed their help?

Or would you visit them every day simply because you love them? Would you call them whenever you have a moment to spare simply because you miss them? Would you prioritize them in your day to day life simply because they’re important to you?

Of course, it would be the latter, right?

It is much the same with the Quran. How can you expect to build a close relationship with the Quran -- and through that, a close relationship with Allah SWT -- if you don’t make a daily effort to stay connected with the word of Allah SWT?

One of the fastest and most accessible ways to develop a close relationship with the Quran is by committing to a Quran memorization goal -- whether it's memorizing the whole thing or just a part of it.

That’s right. Just a part of it is okay. A Quran memorization goal doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing mission!

There’s a myth that we must strive to memorize the entire Quran or don’t bother trying to memorize much at all.

IT’S TIME TO BREAK THIS MYTH.

Just making the effort to memorize more than what you know now and then committing to revise everyday will bring you closer to the Quran, as well as enrich your life with spiritually deeper experiences and rewards such as:

  • Each prayer becomes more meaningful because you can choose from a variety of Surahs according to your needs, and no longer feel like a robot going through the motions of repeating the same short surahs.
  • Each day becomes more blessed because you are interacting with Allah SWT every single time you recite verses of the Quran (and you can enjoy this at any time of the day with the Quran in memory).
  • You become less vulnerable to Shaytan's deceptions because you have a daily relationship with the word of Allah SWT that acts as a constant reminder to guide you through even the toughest times.
  • You accelerate self-improvement, success and happiness because your daily interaction with the Quran opens the door to a personal, deeper understanding and application of its lessons.
  • Your love for Allah SWT increases and your connection with him deepens when the beauty and miracle of the Quran becomes not just part of your daily routine, but a part of your heart.
  • And more… Insha’Allah.

If these rewards are what you heart and soul craves for, then let’s embark on the journey of memorizing the Quran. But first, let’s tackle the most common barriers that cause many Muslims to struggle with Quran memorization.

The Top 3 Modern Barriers to Memorizing the Quran

Despite their best intentions to memorize more of the Quran, many Muslims struggle to achieve it. This isn’t surprising because in today’s modern lifestyle:

The brain hasn’t been “trained” to memorize.

The tradition of memorization isn’t a big part of our day-to-day culture like it was for the Arabs back then. We can now access information on almost any subject practically instantly through the internet. Enveloped in an environment of instant information, our brain rarely needs to remember things word for word.

The fast-paced lifestyle feels contrary to support memorization.

Because the brain isn’t wired to memorize on a daily basis, trying to memorize the Quran feels like it can require a lot of dedicated time (remember how many hours it took to memorize the periodic table in science class?) For many Muslims who juggle a demanding schedule, this task can feel next to impossible.

We often feel isolated in our spiritual goals.

In addition to a fast-paced lifestyle, we live in an increasingly secular society that leave many Muslims feeling isolated in their pursuit of spiritual goals. Not everyone can dedicate full-time study in madrasahs or tahfiz schools, leaving many Muslims feeling, unsupported and unmotivated to memorize the Quran.

Today, we would like to help you overcome these barriers by showing you:

  1. Easy strategies to train your brain and habits to memorize more of the Quran.
  2. How to leverage technology to integrate your memorization routines seamlessly into your busy lifestyle.
  3. Be connected with other like-minded Muslims in an accessible, online learning environment.

Building the Foundation of Effective Quran Memorization

A 6-Week Step-by-Step Live Course Covering the Psychology,
Tools & Long-Term Strategies that Unleash Your Inner Hifdh

Module 1: The First Step of Unleashing Your Inner Hifdh

Most people dive straight into memorizing without fully understanding or committing to internal accountability, and this can lead to a lot of wasted time or slow progress. From watching the sessions, doing the homework, and participating with other students in this first week, you’ll learn how to hold yourself accountable over the next 6 weeks, and beyond.

In this module, you’ll learn:

  • Why accountability needs to come first in the Hifdh journey
  • Your own personal operating systems and the internal and external environments that affect your learning zones
  • Stress management and how to deal with it
  • How you can raise your energy levels and be more productive during your memorization sessions
  • The elements, habits and routines you need to reach your Quran memorization goals or become a Hifdh

Module 2: External Accountability

The ultimate goal of external accountability systems should be to help develop or modify long-term changes in your internal accountability systems, so that you no longer require external accountability anymore! External accountability are like the training wheels for your internal accountability, and it can help give you clarity in terms of where you plan to go.

In this module, you’ll learn:

  • The different kinds of external accountability that can support you

  • Using the ‘Ideal Week System’ and ‘Muraqabah & Gratitude System’ to develop long-term habits you can stick to

Module 3: Gaining Clarity as a Compass for Success

Clarity is an important concept in Islam. In Surah Al-Bayinnah of the Quran, Allah SWT states:

“Those who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture and the polytheists were not to be parted [from misbelief] until there came to them clear evidence…” [Quran 98:1]

In this ayah, ‘Bayinnah’ means clear evidence / clear proof. Clarity is needed to be parted from misbelief, and therefore clarity is an essential component to stay on the straight path. This concept of clarity also applies to our goals, and that’s why we need clarity as a compass for success to stay on track.

In this module, you’ll learn:

  • The art of intention and uncovering your inner whys
  • The different types of desires, aims and mindsets
  • Understanding how to plan what you want to achieve
  • Strategies to determine what to aim for
  • Methods of reminding yourself of the why and keep your intentions sincere

Module 4: Long-Term Strategies for Lasting Memorization

Tips and tricks can get you started and build the initial momentum you need to begin your memorization journey. However, there comes a point where you need to have a long-term strategy.

In this module, you’ll learn:

  • How you can adopt the habits and qualities of successful huffadh
  • Different strategies of habit-building you can try to find the best fit for your personality
  • The powerful combo of ‘90-Day Outcome’ and ‘12-Week Strategy’ that helps you achieve things large or small
  • The importance of knowing your numbers and charting your long-term plan into daily goals
  • Powerful duas to help you in your memorization journey

Module 5: Taking Action!

  • How to begin your Hifdh journey
  • Breaking down the elements of Hifdh
  • Memorization techniques and memorization methods
  • How to tackle revision the right way
  • The importance of concentrating on the small things

Module 6: Q&A Session

By this time, you’d have all built the foundation of effective Quran memorization, InshaAllah. We want to make sure that you are supported, so the final week is dedicated to a group Q&A session with Bilal and Qāri Mubashir. This is your opportunity to ask them anything and experience their direct mentorship. A priceless value!

Meet the Two Hafiz Who Will Be Your Mentors

Bilal Memon
CEO of Quran Academy &
Creator of Quran Companion

Bilal Memon is a former financial analyst and Quran Hafiz who studied in a madrasah in New York. Having memorized the Quran by the age of 11, Bilal forgot the Quran when he reached adulthood.

Bilal then left his job as a financial analyst to pursue entrepreneurship and re-memorize the Quran. After achieving his goal in eight months, Bilal created Quran Academy and the Quran memorization app, ‘Quran Companion’, to help busy Muslims memorize the Quran.

Bilal realized that Quran memorization is a lifelong journey and is not a one-size fits all model. In other words, some techniques that work great for others don’t necessarily work for everybody. Everybody’s goal should be to find the best memorization strategies that work best for them and then double down on them.

Qāri Mubashir Anwar
Chief Product Officer of Quran Academy &
Founder of How to Memorise the Quran

Qāri Mubashir began memorising the Qur'an when he was around 12 years old, struggling down the path to successful completion over several years. He completed memorization in Cairo, Egypt where he was authorised in recitation and sought advice from many legendary reciters. Since then Qāri has been teaching, researching and writing about actionable memorization methods using 16+ years of experience.

He is known for his recitation of the Quran and Nashids, and has studied and gained Ijazah in the Islamic Sciences with various notable world renowned scholars from Egypt, Pakistan, Syria, Uzbekistan, Australia and the UK. Qari Mubashir currently teaches Qur'ān, Islamic Sciences and Arabic and is also a best selling author of “The Promise of Ten” and founder at How To Memorise The Quran, The Blessed Hub and other initiatives in the UK.

“And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember?” [Quran 54:17]

Can you imagine the impact a daily relationship with the Quran can have in your life?

Consider these verses and stories:

“If We had sent down this Quran upon a mountain, you would have seen it humbled and coming apart from fear of Allah.” [Quran 59:21]

The Prophet SAW once passed by one of the companions who was reciting the Quran. When he came to the verse:

“And when the heaven splitteth asunder and becometh rosy like red hide...” [Quran 55:37]

The hair of his body stood on end and he was nearly choked with excessive weeping. He would cry and say: “Alas: what will happen to me on the day when even the heaven splitteth asunder. Woe is me!”

The Prophet SAW said to him: “Your crying has made even the angels weep.”

Khulaid was saying his salah. During his Quraat when he reached the verse:

“Every soul will taste of death.” [Quran 3:185]

He began to repeat it again and again. He heard a voice from a corner of the room saying: “How often are you going to repeat this verse? Your recitation has already caused the death of four Jinns.”

If the Quran’s impact can crumble mountains, lead angels to weep, and cause jinns to die… then wouldn’t you want the magnificence and miracle of the Quran to be present in your daily life?

While much has already been said about the many possible benefits of building a daily relationship with the Quran, at the end of the day it is a very individual and personal experience.

Only Allah knows -- and only YOU can experience -- how the Quran will impact YOUR everyday living when you simply let the Quran into your daily life.

So please don’t turn away from the Quran and never find out what that impact could be for you.

Open the door to a deeper, daily relationship with the Quran -- and with Allah SWT -- through the simple act of committing to achieve your next Quran memorization goal by the end of the year.

If you would prefer to pursue these goals on your own or with another teacher, then we encourage you to do so.

If you would like to join this course that Quran Academy is offering, then Bilal Memon and Qari Mubashir Anwar are excited to mentor you and help you achieve your Quran memorization goal by the end of this year, InshaAllah!

May Allah accept and reward all our deeds. Amin.

Jazakallah khair.
