As salaam alaikum.

Keep your eyes on the prize - Jannah that is!

I just did some quick math...

If you memorize just one verse of the quran a day it takes just a little more than 17 years to become a hafiz insha'allah! I have wasted twice that already.

There is no deed better than seeking knowledge if the intention is correct.

As-salaamu alaykum,

Subhan'Allah, I was just doing a calculation on some other goal I had, but this one is even better!

Seventeen years is nothing! I just have to work on the whole "revising what I know" part... For those who have memorized, that takes more time than actually memorizing, doesn't it?

I had a teacher once (wife of a modern scholar) who said that if she didn't memorize the whole Qur'aan by the time her "time was up," she would die trying. Great inspiration, masha'Allah. Just have to get our intention in check (you get the reward of what you intended, insha'Allah).

Jazaakum Allahu khayran,

"My Lord! Increase me in knowledge." (Qur'aan 20.114)
"Our Lord! We believe, so forgive us, and have mercy on us, for You are the Best of all who show mercy!" (23:109)
"And hold fast, all together, by the rope which Allah (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves..."(3:10)

WOW.. interesting! Baby steps to Jannah Smiley

I believe in Islam like the sun rising, not because I see it but because by it, I see everything else.

Right!! This is exactly what i planned to do!! I am keeping it 18 years though, to be on the safe side.
People usually learn 6-7 verse a day and that completes it in 2-3 years. I thought i cant do that so let it be 18 years. Jannat is the goal so whats the hurry........
Can you give me any memorization tips (imagine I need that even for one verse a day!!!!......but i really do!! Cheesy)

Mashallah this is great inspiration

I would leave in the morning for work with a piece of paper with one ayat written down.

I keep it in my office and glance at it and try to keep it in my mind with the meaning.

Then after work I would forbid myself from entering my apartment until it was memorized.

it takes much practice inshaAllah May Allah increase us all in Quran memorization inshaAllah, Ameen

May Allah bless and protect you and your families always, and may His peace and blessings be upon our beloved Messenger and his family and companions,

The unity of all, perceptible to even bystanders, is the Oneness that inspired it, a sea without shores, subject me to this sea.

I am trying to find straight path of Jannah.

I think this is the straight patht.
La Ilaha Illalallah.
There is none to be obeyed without Allah.
What do you think?
