    It is not based on the individual, it's the standard for everyone. It's such a critical thing.

    And @ Abdullahiii: What? What hype? lol... I don't consider myself the "CEO" lol. It's an Islamic communal organization, not a business.

    Don't worry. You don't sound stupid. English transliteration is OK. I have a tajweed Qur'an with the english transliteration on one side for each side of arabic. But it's not great. Some of the letters can't be sounded (or rather spelt) in english. That's the only problem. If you know of any sisters that can help you read the Arabic script with the correct pronounciation, that would be great. It's quite easy once you get the hang of it.

    Re: Questions? Ask away here!

    My husband says Arabic is easy to read too (he knows quite a bit of the Koran) but I cant even get the language i am trying to learn (bosnian) he has been trying to teach me for OVER a year... he has been sooooooooo paient and kind...(i can write)

    The problem is i get too nervous and then i cant hear right and i start to studder... (even sometimes in english) which makes me worry i will make it even worse in another language. I dont know... Sometimes i just feel a little stupid... Do you think its less meaningful if i can only say/memorize in english?

    You mean english transliteration rather than translation right? Well... I'm not a scholar, so I'm not qualified to say... but Qur'an as a miracle is only Qur'an in it's original arabic form. English letters can be very misleading in other languages. See if your husband can teach you... if you still can't get it, then you can switch back to english, but then at least you've tried, inshaAllah.

    juzz 3amma doing 5 ayahs a day.

    other questions: can we change teh number of ayahs we memorize a day if foe eg we have trouble with memorizing the amount we originally stipulated?

    no, not stupid =) ummm even though you have trouble learning Arabic, please do make the effort to learn...it is so worth it.
    The best way to learn is to associate with those that can speak it fluently. and since we are referring to the quran i advice you to associate with those who speak it in the fus7ah (classical Arabic) becuase the only other choice you have to to listen to the people speak in their own dialects which wont help as it aint the fus7ah...so what i suggest is to listen to lectures in Arabic as much as you can (even though you dont understand them) and also listen to recitations of the quran so at the very least you can pronouce the letters correctly...dont worry so much about the meaning or grammer just yet... maybe also you can contemplate on taking a basic arabic class or something?

    Re: Questions? Ask away here!

    ^ My fusha arabic teacher said very few people speak proper fusha, because of it's level of high formality and grammar rules. One you think you can master the rules of arabic grammar and have enough vocab, you can start reading bookes like Stories of the Prophets by Ibn Kathir. That's what I'm hoping to do inshaAllah.

    Re: Questions? Ask away here!

    There's 3 levels, sister. Level one is Juz Amma, Level 2 is Tabaraak.

    It's a fun Juz, or at least I think so. There's Mulk, Mudatthir and Muzammil (which I LOVE), and then there's Insaan. Whenever I recite that to my mother, I always ask her Insaan or Dahr. (They're both the same thing, just different names LOL)... I love the last two.

    Though, my memorization was a bit off. Here's how it was: 30, 29, 1-18, 28-19. Weird, eh? lol

    Well if you've already started Juz 'Amma on your own, then maybe it's best if you complete it first?

    If you haven't started it, but have started Tabaarak, then sure get in to level 2. It's not a good idea to leave off where you already are.

    If you've already done both, I'd suggest getting into Level 3. But if you want to stick to revising it (at the pace of the memorizers) than you can do that too.

    let me try to make myself clear: a long while back I memorized both juzz's (finished juzz 3amma stopped in the middle of juzz tabaarak), I've practically forgotten both due to my laziness so recently i decided to revise or rather re-memorize them, starting from juzz tabaarak simply becuase it's stayed in my memory better. So since i picked up from Juzz Tabarak again, i want to start from it here with 5 ayahs a day.

    i hope i am making sense...

    Sounds good. I'm putting you down for Level 2, 5 ayaat per day.

    keep revising bro. you have to keep revising all your life, otherwise you forget. this is very normal. the limit of non revising period after you start forgetting depends on how well you have memorised, your long term memory as well as to some extent on the time passed since you memorized. in some sense, the longer the time passed, more likely are you to retain it. its sort of like you remember your childhood things well.
    Good luck.

    1) Starting officialy after Ramadan.
    2) I'll be updating those sections today and in the next few days insha Allaah.
    3) If you've already started memorizing, that's perfectly fine! You can join in with the groups when it starts after Ramadan insha'Allaah.

    That's something that happens to all of us. The way I learned to tackle this problem was to memorize with a Qari. Choose a qari that you like to listen to and listen to the surah recited by him many times until you pick up the tune. Then you can memorize to the tune.

    The Qur'an is primarily an oral tradition so really the only way to properly get it down is to listen to it over and over and recite the verses yourself as many times as necessary.

    Another way is to understand what the ayaat are saying. Notice I didn't say memorize the translation - that is inefficient and a waste of time. Focus on understanding what is being said and that may help you remember.

    Another thing is consistency and gradual steps. Think of a child, first he tries to stand - how many times does he fall down before he can finally stand up? How many times more before he can properly walk? So take it easy, don't 'burn out', don't allow yourself to get bored, and keep consistent, even if you're memorizing a single verse per day, make sure you're consistent at it. It's always quality over quantity. Insha'Allaah, in due time you'll be able to memorize pages a day!

    And lastly, revision, revision, revision. Memorization is the easy part, believe it or not. Many aspiring hufadh fail because they don't have a balance between memorization and revision. For every ayah you memorize, make sure to revise what you've memorized before. Revision is key.

    Re: Questions? Ask away here!

    ,

    I've been memorizing more of Juz 'Amma, but I do not know the principles of tajweed yet (I know a few rules, but not all). I really want to finish memorizing this juz by the time my kids are born in March (insha'Allah). Is it a good idea to memorize without proper tajweed knowledge? I always check myself by listening to Mishary recite and usually base my recitation off of his (the best I can anyways).
