    Welcome! And the next step! (OP)




    Welcome to the new section dedicated to this project insha Allaah.

    For those who are just hearing of this, then this is the thread you should read first:
    LI's Online Qur'an Memorization Initiative

    Alhamdullilah, there has been a very enthusiastic response to the announcement of this initiative and as promised, this is the next step. We need to figure out how many people will be in each level.

    Now, before going on. We very much emphasize that if you have not memorized Juz 'Amma, that you please get into the Juz 'Amma level. Starting off memorization with Juz 'Amma is going to be very helpful for these reasons:
    1) Short ayaat and short surahs. When we start memorizing Qur'an, our minds are not ready to intake a lot of new information. Starting with Juz 'Amma enables your mind to get ready to memorize.

    2) You will see yourself progress. The surahs are short, so you will notice progress and this will keep you motivated.

    3) These are surahs that are the most commonly recited.
    What is going to be done is the following - remember we said that there will be 3 levels? Level One for Juz 'Amma, Level Two for Juz Tabarak, and Level Three for other Suwar?

    All we ask for you to do in this thread is the following - in a post please:

    1) Write which Level you want to join. Again, if you have not done Juz 'Amma, we strongly recommend you join Level 1 - Juz 'Amma.

    2) Tell us how many ayaat you think you can memorize per day. Even if it is just 1 ayat, nothing at all wrong with that. If you can do more, let us know.

    3) If you are opt for Level 3, then please let us know in your post which Surah you are interested in memorizing.*

    * Once we complete this step, we will choose the surah based off of poll insha Allaah.

    Re: Welcome! And the next step!

    Level 3
    chapter 35, surah Fatir (I am at the end of this surah)...I prefer half a page because some ayaat are short, some others are long

    I am not sure if I will start now, I barely find the time to memorize since I am in a vacation out of my country....so I may not be able to make it everyday

    jazakum Allah khair

Or if you don't have a Saudi mushaf available, then multiply your lines in the paki 13 line mushaf by .821 and you should get an okay estimate of lines done in the Saudi mushaf. Its very simple, but tracks progress much better than counting ayahs.
    I agree, but I don't want to complicate it for everyone. It might be easy for some and not for others. Whereas ayaat are the same everywhere, so that would help everyone stay on the same 'page' per se.

    Care to expand?
    The two Mushafs, Saudi 15-liner is where the ayah ends on every page. The Desi/other Mushaf is a 13 liner, where the font is bigger and the ayaat don't end on every page.

    Do you choose Juz 'Amma or Juz Tabarak? Whichever one you want insha Allaah.

    Re: Welcome! And the next step!

    This part of the forum seems dead. Allow me to fuel it up with some encouraging words... Also because I feel guilty for not participating here in the good cause. Anyway, it's an article I'd like to share.

    ----

    Experience
    By Hafiz Raakin Hossain & Rashad Abdullah

    An experience is usually viewed as an encounter or an action of undergoing something. Experiences can take one through jungles, cities, deserts, and even the planets. But through these experiences, only two thoughts remain in the mind. That is the memories and morals learnt during the encounter of which you had experimented. When the waves wash the sands, what remains are only shells and rocks. These shells and rocks hold the hardships which we had endured and the lessons which we had learnt throughout the experience of life. With that said, I would like to share a personal experience of mine which I thought had sparked an inspiration in my early life.

    There is an English saying, “to turn a new leaf”. In that tree of life, I had chosen the opportune leaf to turn. In late sixth grade, my physical and mental self literally jumped towards the local Qur’aanic memorization school. For an eleven year old kid, sitting in a class from early morning to late in the evening is not at all easy. The only two things that had kept me refueled were the support of my parents and the prayers which I had recited. I had yearned and strived for four long years to complete the memorization of the Glorious Qur’aan. After much perseverance and patience on my teacher’s and parent’s part, I had completed only a few months back.

    A parent’s concern when considering to enroll a child in any Qur’aanic memorization school is regarding the future of that child. Livelihood is from Allah’s infinite mercy, and not through our schooling. If anything, the Qur’aan opens up the mind and soul to the reality of life. Children who memorize or have memorized the Qur’aan do not sit idle in front of television sets or computer games. Rather, they look at striving in the path of Allah, hoping to spread what is true to every corner of the world. In my four years of experience, never have I seen a sincere Hafiz who suffers or suffered from hunger, poverty, or any type of infliction.

    Spending a few years in any field is a huge sacrifice, but what makes a sacrifice easier is to recognize the benefits. Our previous teachers and scholars had told us that when we do good deeds, we should always remember the reward we will be receiving, as that will motivate us. It is also said in Hadith that the measurement of reward is based on the sincerity of both the intention and the action. The Qur’aan alone has medication for both our spiritual and physical body. Not a Surah (chapter) has been revealed without a benefit; let it be to identify a thief, find a proper partner in life, or even to protect yourself from poverty.

    I had addressed this topic mainly towards parents, as in recent days I have met and have been approached by a few brothers who have made much effort to practice Islam, but have failed to do many parts due to the lack of concern on the parents’ part. As the prices of fuel, homes, and food increase, we must put our trust in Allah. The bigger picture of keeping the Qur’aan alive has been accomplished by the previous companions, and the least we can do to show our appreciation is to make effort in memorizing the Qur’aan not through our tongue, but through our heart. May Allah Ta’ala make it easy for us to memorize, retain, and practice the Holy Qur’aan.

    Post your comments. I’d love your feedback Insha’Allah!

    If Allah helps you, none can overcome you; and if He forsakes you, who is there after Him that can help you? And in Allah (Alone) let believers put their trust.

    It was narrated that Anas ibn Maalik (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:
    The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him) climbed up Uhud, accompanied by Abu Bakr, ‘Umar and ‘Uthmaan, and the mountain shook with them. He struck it with his foot and said: “Stand firm, O Uhud, for there is no one on you but a Prophet or a Siddeeq or two martyrs.”
    Narrated by al-Bukhaari (3483)

    I am not being negative, I am being realistic. how many people on this forum are their original selves? How many people take the internet seriously. They will sign up for this and forget about it.

    If people are really serious about this, then I'm sorry, please forgive me, but this project in my honest opinion seems surreal.

    Allaahu Aalim.

    I have nothing more to do with this thread.

    and I pray this project gains success, Ameen.
