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?:
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
The fact is Shaytan will always be there to deceive us, as the Prophet SAW warned us in his last sermon:
And the further Shaytan can take us away from the Quran -- little by little -- the better for him.
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?
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:
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.
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:
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.
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 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.
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.
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:
A 6-Week Step-by-Step Live Course Covering the Psychology,
Tools & Long-Term Strategies that Unleash 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:
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:
Clarity is an important concept in Islam. In Surah Al-Bayinnah of the Quran, Allah SWT states:
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:
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:
No strategy will work unless you take action. We’re not going to leave you on your own, and that’s why in this activity-driven module, we will provide you with an operational plan to manage and put in action your goals.
In this module, you’ll learn:
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!
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 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.

Amazon reviews of books authored by Qāri Mubashir Anwar
* Ideally, your goal is a favorite surah or a surah you’ve always wanted to memorize. If you’re a beginner or intermediate at memorizing, we suggest a surah or a collection of short surahs totalling around 3-5 pages.
A Quran teacher can focus on your tajweed and ensure your makhraj is perfected as you learn to memorize. It is also be a long-term investment, which month to month can cost you an average of $60 - $90 a month.
While the personal learning experience with a teacher to guide you has undeniably many great benefits, a Quran teacher may not necessarily focus on teaching you the foundational skills and strategies that build a long-term daily Quran memorization habit, which can seamlessly fit into your busy lifestyle.
This course mentors you on building the essential foundation for a life-long memorization habit for busy Muslims. We recommend that you already have the basic skill of correct tajweed. After this course, you will be well equipped with the right skills to continue memorizing the Quran on your own, or with a Quran teacher if you wish, Insha’Allah.

Consider these verses and stories:
The Prophet SAW once passed by one of the companions who was reciting the Quran. When he came to the verse:
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:
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.”
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.
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.
