How to memorize the Quran Better
I've found this on the net, and I do feel excited to share it with all of you.
This is taken from:
(* with some comments that I feel not quiet necessary, but can be tools of accentuation.. :p)
Below are some quick tips that will help you in memorizing the Qur'an:
1. You absolutely must have a teacher.
Do NOT memorize on your own. You must have a teacher who you respect and whom you fear. Don't ask 'how' to memorize the Qur'an. Ask where you can find the best teacher. The teacher will then guide you on the 'how'. ( Rasanye takde penah jumpa lagi seorang hafiz yang dok menghafal sorang2, mesti ada at least sowang guider untuk buat tasmi')
In memorizing the Qur'an, you must free your mind and environment of distractions. Imagine trying to memorize at a football game? Tough, huh? How about a theme park, could you sit down and control yourself to memorize? Probably not. Getting into a Qur'an Hifdh program with a teacher and discipline will assist you in creating the perfect atmosphere for memorization. (Oo...sebab tu aahh Ammar ngan Amir bole balik umah 3 kali je setahun...tannak kasik distraction punye psal la nih kot...)
3. Memorize through Audio.
A lot of people think they are memorizing the 'look' of the Mushaf, but actually you are memorizing the 'sound' of Ayat. When I review, I record my recitation on CD and listen to it again and again. The students that read the loudest in class are all the strongest students. Why? Because they can hear themselves the most?
When I was in Qur'an school, the boy beside me read so loud. I asked the teacher to ask him to read more quietly. He said a most powerful statement that became my motto: "No, you read louder!" I did and it benefited me unbelievably. ( I have a sepupu yang telah hafal yassin time dia masih tadika lagi.., sebabnye, mak dia hari-hari pasang alunan al-Quran dalam kete...My mom dulu nak hafal al-Baqarah pon pasang tape ikot bacaan bersama-sama imam tu..)
4. Location of the Mushaf.
Your eyes follow a specific direction depending on what you are thinking or doing. If you are lying, your eyes go left. If you are remembering something visual, like where you left your keys, your eyes will look upwards.
When you memorize, the direction of memorization is right and left, not downwards. The mistake I see people make is that they put their mushaf low on the ground and then try to memorize. In order to fully harness the power of your mind, you must keep the mushaf at eye level, and not dip your head.. (This is totally new to me...interesting, interesting..)
5. Eat brain food.
We've all heard the advice of uncles that you have to eat Badams (almonds) to improve memory. Well, I'm here to tell you that the uncles were right! The food you eat, the drinks you drink, directly affect your ability to excel in memorization of the Qur.an.
Do not eat fatty, unhealthy food. Do not drink soda. Eat a nutritious light breakfast, a nutritious light lunch, with almonds for snacks during the day. Subhan Allah, you will find you accomplish much more in your day. (Tade nak komen hape2..sume orang dah transparent tentang bab ini rasanya..)
6. Make everyday a victory.
You can move a mountain rock by rock. Enjoy every page you memorize, every Ayah.
(MasyaAllah..besar gajaran untuk orang yang menghafal al-Quran nih, apa ye rasanya satu kandungan sinaran dan cahaya al-Quran itu terasa memenuhi dada...)
