As salaamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu. My name is Aisha and this is my first ever blog post.
I am putting this out to be a motivation for me and probably others that are also struggling to memorize the book of Allah
Quran has always been a part of my life, and from a very young age I always want to commit it to heart but it seems elusive and difficult to achieve.
I always find something as an excuse that prevented me from achieving this childhood wish of mine, but seriously there's no excuse that should have prevented me from something that would benefit my hereafter and increase my rank in paradise.
So, this would be a diary like sort of blog, about what I am memorizing, my obstacles and what I am doing to make my dream of being a keeper of Allah's words come true.

Today was so hectic, I started my house chore way too early and before I knew it, the time had flew by.
I know so many people say the best time for memorizing the Quran is early in the morning, and to be candid it is very true because the brain is just waking up and it is still fresh. However, I have realized that this is not working for me. I can’t predict my activities, so I have decided that early morning would still be my preferred time, but if I couldn’t make it, then I will memorize anytime I am free.
Sticking to early morning made me procrastinate and being the lazy being I am, it made me inconsistent with my memorization.
The above decision made me learn 3 verses by heart today. Although it is small by my standard, I still memorized 3 verses which means today 3 verses of Allah’s words is in my heart. Alhamdulillahi

‘And we have certainly made the Quran easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember?’ ( Quran 54:17)
This is one of the verses I learnt by heart today and and it got me more motivated.
Listening to it, reading it, comprehending it and writing it. These old techniques is still what I am using
For listening, I have this app on my phone I use called ‘Quran memorization test’ and it is super cool. I listen to the portion I want to memorize so many times I can’t count sometimes.
Then I read what I have listened to over and over again
The comprehension part is complicated for me. I used to use English translation before but I realized Yoruba is my first language not English, and since I started using Yoruba translation it has really helped my comprehension.
And yes I bought an excersice book, pencil and cleaner and write whatever I have memorized. It helped a lot.
So today I memorized 6 lines. Great alhamdulillah

I had a lot of distractions today, and I felt I shouldn't memorize today until tomorrow but no I didn't give in to my inner thoughts and I was able to memorize one verse. With the 4 lines I memorized yesterday, I know I will get there in shaa Allah.

My memorization today is not staying so well and I made a lot of mistakes. It mad be unhappy but I know that I will improve in shaa Allah. Some days are like that.
At the same time I reflected on what could have caused it that I should avoid doing. These are the things I think I found
1. That I should not rush memorization (I wanted to get something done and I was rushing to finish memorizing)
2. Memorize small verses that stick rather than memorize plenty that will evaporate easily ( Today, I memorized more than I did yesterday, but yesterday’s memorization stuck better)
3. Quran need complete attention and focus at the moment of memorization ( I was thinking of what to cook and all sort)
4. Do whatever needs to be done before memorization so as not to be standing up or breaking to give instructions and other distractions

I have found that memorizing alone is not what you need. However you keep on memorizing and revising everyday.
Memorizing Quran as an adult is not easy, you keep forgetting it all the time.
But many of the companions(may peace upon them) memorized it as an adult with things to do in their lives and family to take care of. So please who am I not to give in all my efforts.
So I will keep reading and reading and reading in shaa Allah until it is in my head and brain. And my body and soul recognizes that Quran has come to stay in my life and my hereafter.

I haven’t updated for a while because I didn’t want to be compulsive of my posts. It’s a hobby that I don’t want to be an addiction.
However not a day has passed without me not memorizing or revising the Quran alhamdulillahi. I finished one of the most difficult hizb for me to revise for 2 days ago. I know the hizb is still difficult to remember but I am hopeful.
Switching to using Yoruba translation has really helped my memory alhamdulillahi. I can flow with the meaning in my head now.

I haven’t missed a day of memorization since I started making posts. However retaining what I memorized is kind of difficult. But one of the miracles of Quran is Allah make it easy. So I am hopeful that with persistence come ease.
I did some reading on retaining memorized verses and they include
Performing Salah with memorized verses
Praying Tahajjud with them
I don’t know what I did for those short Surahs, I would have started reading them before remembering I want to revise.
And for Tahajjud, I’m not consistent, I keep snoozing the alarm.
The struggle is real, may Allah make it easy

In the eyes of distractions and low Iman
Lately I have been watching movies a lot. And yes social media (I’m mostly a ghost but I still spend a lot of time on these apps).
And I enjoy reading novels so much.
I am battling with how to make these constructive and not just time wasting.
Another thing is level of faith is not constant, it goes up, middle and low. I think I am in the middle of low right now.
Which means I pray only the obligatory prayers, no added good deeds, nothing.
These are affecting my memorization, I just pray Allah forgive my sins, improve my Iman and keep me steadfast on His religion.
One thing I am grateful for is however low I am, I make sure I memorize even if it is one verse.
I currently don’t have a physical teacher, I am managing an online platform for sisters to submit my memorization each day. I used to be absent a lot before but now alhamdulillahi I have improved

BarakaLlahu feekum. Keep going, you'll get there bi-ithniLlah. Your little drops of water will definitely make an ocean someday.
