Just today I decided to start from the beginning of al baqarah just to see if I still remember clearly and I don't know it as well as I knew it when I had freshly memorized it
because it has been a while since you read it last time...this is so normal
...does this happen to everyone that memorizes?
yeah, a lot!
Or are you supposed to know it perfectly?
Its rather you suppose to revise it regularly. There is no way that you won't forget what you memorize....that's why you have to keep revising in a regular pace
I'm scared to move on now because I am scared I will forget some of it later...I dont know what to do. I know to review now but I still fear the same thing will happen....
Here is my suggestion to you:
1. Keep going on your memorization as you planned before
2. Then assign sometime during the day to revise what you already memorized, say one page to revise daily from the beginning of where you started firstly.
3. Try to assign 2 or 3 days a week to recite what you already memorized all at once so you will figure the relation between those verses or pages you are memorizing since you are memorizing in parts every time.
If you are a sister and a full member, feel free to PM me for more explanation....I can help in assigning schedules for you if you want.
