Salam Alekom we Rahmat Allah we Barakatoh,
The Five Forts plan's idea belongs to Sheikh Saed Hamza
The aim of the Plan:
- To have an excellent Memorisation that make you capable to recite it anytime with a closed book
- To memorise for Allah only, memorise for Paradise
Who can follow the plan?
- beginners in memorisation
- who have memorised the whole quran but did not reach the excellent level
- kids who can read quran
- elders who can read quran
- practacly anyone who want to enter paradise
memorising 5 pages a week
Length of the project:
121 week including holidays, eid, the month of ramdan and so on
When to start the project:
whenever you are willing to prepare for your trip to paradise
The role of this page:
- introduce you to the five forts plan
- supply you with any files you need to help you memorise including audio quran
- supply you with a detailed weekly plan to follow
The Five forts Plan
1. Recitation and Listening:
- Reciting: is to recite 2 juz' a day, so you should finish reciting the whole quran once every 15 day
(That will help you get familiar with the words of the quran which will ake it easy to memorise new surah's and revise surah's that have been memorised before)
it should not take you more than 20 minutes for one Juz', if it takes more then i advice you to read while listening to the quran to learn how to speed up reading
the more you read, the more you will be familiar with the words, the faster you will be while reciting, memorising and revising.
here's a link of the hard copy of the quran that we will be using in the plan
if you want to read it online then go here
- Listening: is to listen to one Hizb (half a juz' = 10 pages) everyday, so you should finish listening to the whole quran once every 60 days
(That will help you to learn the correct pronunciations of the words of the Quran)
The best Reciter to Listen to is Al-Husary, and here's a link to the audio file divided into pages so you can choose which page you want to listen to
to download all the pages with one click
to choose which page you want to download
like any subject we study at school, when you read the topic before you go to lecture, you find yourself understand it better than reading it after the lecture
the Qur'an is the same, needs preparation, the more you read it before memorising, the easiest it will be to memorise
here we have three preparation:
- Weekly preparation: to read the five pages once EVERYDAY during the week before memorisation
- Nightly preparation: to listen to the page that you are going to memorize the following day for about 15 minutes
and to read it for another 15 minutes
- Pre-memorizing preparation: on the day you will memorize the page, before you start memorizing, you need to read that page again for 15 minutes
after all these preparation it should be easy to memorise that page for the number of times you went through it
you will memorise that page for no more/less than 15 minutes
you could say i already memorized it in 5 minutes, i will say keep memorizing for 15 minutes if you want perfect memorization
4. Near Revision:
revise everyday (with a closed book) the last 20 pages that you have memorized
5- Far Revision:
to revise what you have memorised before the Near revision
and it will be done once a week
You: this is too much work
Me: did anyone tell you that going to Paradise is easy ??
You: that will take lots of time
Me: is it too much to spend 3 hours a day preparing for Jannah ??
For whoever understand arabic
i STRONGLY advice you to listen to "Memorising by 5 forts plan" series
- it explains in details how the plan works
- it has a really beneficial advices in regard of memorising and revising
- it also highlights the problems you might face (during memorising and revising) and how to get over it
here's a copy of a empty printable plan
you can print it in 121 copy and fill it every week with the weekly homework
then record your achievement to see how are you doing
i will start from next post by posting every week plan in sha'llah
i won't wait every week to post a plan
but i will rather post as much plans as i can so you won't have a problem continue memorizing if i got busy any time
May Allah Grant you all the highest level in Paradise
please, don't forget me in your duaa

I am really interested in starting the five forts plan but I would like to ask for some advice before embarking on this journey.
Alhamdoulillah I have already memorized approximately 12 juz from sura Ali Imrane to sura Al Isra. I try to revise a portion of it every day by waking 1.5 hours before leaving for work. This means that I can usually revise 1.5 juz, depending on which part I am revising. However I am really struggling to get my revision to a decent level and feel like I'm going in circles.
I also go every saturday and sunday morning to a masjid to recite on the imam but it still is not enough.
My question is how should I proceed in revising them so they get stronger as fast as possible and I can continue memorizing because I started a tajweed course and we have to memorise from sura Albaqarah.
Jazakumullahu Khairan for your precious advice,
Barak Allah fekom,
as i mentioned in the first post
if you have any question, you can ask it in this topic in sha'allah
anyone have a problem memorizing or revising Quran ? then welcome here
