    wa 'alaikum as salaam wa rahmatu Allahi wa barakauth,

    I wish the same, and perhaps some of the Arabic speakers on the thread or forum will be willing to help out with that request, insha'Allah.

    And I wish this would be translated:

    This forum is in Arabic and describes the methods as well, although google translate is not really helping me to understand it:

    and this is an Arabic book about their methods:

    wa iyaakum. And actually, it is the original person that began the thread that deserves our du'a. I find the method fascinating!

    Also, in my quest and wish to obtain a real lawh and inkpot, I came across a boogie board, which looks like an electronic version of the yemeni lawh and their white ink:

    as salaamu 'alaikum,

    A new blog post by Misk Academy (Canada) that is dedicated to hifdh for women:

    * * *

    Posted on June 12, 2013

    WE DIDN’T CATCH IMAM AHMED ON TIME TO INCLUDE IN THE E-BOOK “I WANNA BE A HAAFIDHA TOO”. IT TURNED OUT FOR THE BEST, BECAUSE HIS ANSWERS ARE PRETTY AWESOME AND DESERVE THE SPOTLIGHT HERE.

    Imam Ahmed is originally from Mauritania where he learned a number of Qiraa’aat including Naafi’, Aasim, and Abu Amr. He is currently serving as the Imam of Masjid Gatineau, Quebec.


    Q: What was your motivation for dedicating your time in studying the Quran?

    A: All the credits go in first place to the Mercy and the Will of Allah SWT then to the involvement of my parents especially my mother when I was very young. Her constant reminder and encouragement played a big role in giving me the needed motivation until I completed my memorization.


    Q: What strategy did you find worked best for memorizing and retaining the verses of the Quran?

    A: The strategy which is widely used back home in Mauritania to retain the verses is that of the repetition and review process. The goal of this process is to place all memorized verses into our long-term memory. In other words we are basically trying to memorize everything and recall it just as we recall Surat al-Fatihah. We do memorize off of a small wooden tablet called a Lawh. And this is how it works:

    - Write the page [or two or three or four] on the Lawh in legible writing. You must read what is written to one who knows the Qur’an. It is not uncommon to mistakenly write something and start off reading it incorrectly

    - Proceed to read the text out loud while looking at the Lawh just as you would with a book. Read and read until you can read it without looking at all.

    - After memorizing the text, proceed to repeat what you memorized 500 times using the Misbah to count with. Yes 500 times and it is not a typo. In Mauritania we
    repeat each page of Qur’an 500 (five-hundred) times in our memorization.

    - Occasionally, read the verses while looking at the Lawh to insure that you have not left off anything.

    - After completing 500 repetitions [or whatever high number you choose] take a break. You are done…at least for the 1st day.

    - Now on day two you will memorize new material and that means 500 more repetitions. With that however, you still have not finished from yesterday. After memorizing and repeating the new material, proceed to repeat yesterday’s material 150 times from memory.

    - On day three, you will memorize new material and that means 500 more repetitions. Don’t forget though, you still have to repeat yesterday’s [day 2] text 150 times and the day before that [day 1] text 50-75 times.

    - On day four, you will memorize new material and that means 500 more repetitions. Don’t forget though, you still have to repeat yesterday’s [day 3] material 150 times and the material from the day before [day 2] 50-75 times and the material from day one 10 times.

    - With this program, you will need less time to review what you have memorized because it will have entered into your long-term memory. Even though you know it well, you should always review your memorization of the Qur’an from front to back on a consistent basis, to make sure that you can connect every part together as one unit.

    - In the Canadian context you can replace the Lawh by a board or a tan paper.


    Q: How do you remain consistent with your Hifdh and knowledge of Qiraa’aat?

    A: Practice and commitment – By reviewing it on a daily basis until you complete the khatm then restart again. As you maintain your daily reading you’ll be reviewing all of what you have memorized within the span of a week. Each Khatmah could be dedicated to one Qiraa’a and from time to time it is advisable that we review the fundamental rules pertaining to the different Qiraa’aat that we learned so far.


    Q: What are some pitfalls or mistakes most people fall into when memorizing?

    A: Some of those mistakes are:

    - To memorize using different copies of the Quran instead of using the same copy (Mushaf)

    - Surpassing one’s daily limit without perfecting its memorization

    - Not reading to a consistent teacher

    - Not connecting the verses when moving from a page to another

    - Not taking advantage of the best years of memorization [between 5 and 23]

    - Stopping on places in the verse that would change completely the meaning intended by the Quran


    Q: Sometimes when it gets hard, you give up and it’s hard to get back into momentum. How do you keep going?

    A: Purify your intention, beg Allah for His help and aspire for the Akhirah and the highest levels of Allah’s gardens.


    Q: How do you keep balanced?

    A: You should treat the Qur’an as aziz (noble), making it your first priority and then try to balance everything else around it. Don’t do it the other way. Quran should never be the last item on your list of priorities.


    Q: Are there certain habits that could deter one from retaining what is memorized?

    A: Obviously the habit of not reviewing what you memorized could very much deter your Hifdh. Committing sins is also another factor that can loosen your memorization.


    Q: Can you please give us an example of the kind of schedule you had when you were memorizing?

    A: Day 1: 500 repetitions
    Day 2: 500+150 (for material of day one)
    Day 3: 500+150 (for material of day two) + 75 (for material of day one)
    Day 4: 500+150 (for material of day three) +75 (for material of day two) +10 (for material of day one)
    Day 5: Continues as day four along with reading everything at once a few times to ensure proper connection.


    Q: How do you protect yourself from the shaytan and his whispers that you’re not worthy of memorizing and that you should just give up before the Quran becomes a Hujjah/proof against you?

    A: That is one of the traps of shaytan to keep us away from having the chance to be among the special People of Allah, and His Chosen Ones. Everything in this deen could be used against you if not used properly. The Qur’an is the ultimate way of guidance and call people to righteousness. Memorizing its verses and acting upon its injunctions improve our character and spark an internal transformation. The key is to purify your intention and keep checking your heart against the whispers of shaytan.


    Q: Should one study Tajwid and/or Tafsir before starting Hifdh?

    A: Many scholars including Ibn Aljazari recommend studying the Tajweed before starting the Hifdh however the Tafsir could be delayed until Hifth is completed. For non-Arabic speakers using a translation of the meanings of the Quran could be helpful during the process of memorization.


    Q: What general advice do you have for any sister who is considering embarking on a journey with the Qur’an?

    A: Purify your intention, have sincere Ikhlas (sincerity), surround yourself with sisters who are grounded in their Hifdh striving. And above all remember that you are the mothers of the next generations; and if you have the intention to raise generation of huffadh who embody the teachings of Qur’an that will certainly spark the renaissance of this Ummah insha-Allah.
