Maintaining Quran Memorization

I received this through email the other day and I wanted to share. What he says makes complete sense and hopefully will be of benefit to you all. I've taken a few classes by Shaikh Muhammad Alshareef and really liked what I heard. He's young (relatively to be an 3alim) so he relates to the youth very well. He is also quite fair when it comes to answering questions that both the brothers and sisters have (some shaikhs favor the brothers only) and he's very knowledgeable. During his class sessions if the students seem sleepy or unattentive, he asks everyone to stand up and flex. If a male doesn't do it he comes very close to him and asks him too politely to stand up (it's so funny), but if a female stays seated he'll glance at her repeat his wish for everyone to stand, and then he'll leave her alone if she doesn't without any hard feelings. I don't know if any of you will like this story or understand why I shared it...:) Khair inshAllah.

How to Maintain Memorized Quran

By Muhammad Alshareef, courtesy of

Ramadan is the month of Quran. Many start the month off
with lofty Quran reading and memorization goals, and many
hit what they intended DURING Ramadan.

Maintaining consistency after Ramadan, however, is an
entirely different story.

The Shaytans are out and about, daily routines start
obstructing us once again. And the Quran, "respectfully"
returns to our shelves. Sure we feel guilty, but guilt is
not the greatest of motivators.

You need tried and proven routes to capture your
post-Ramadan Quran reading and memorization and review

Here is my favorite:
Re-memorize Quran you have trouble remembering, and recite
it every Salah chance you get for the entire day.

Step 1: Lets say you have 1 Juz' memorized (equivalent of
about 20 pages).
Step 2: Take 1/2 a page of those 20 pages
and RE-memorize it today.
Step 3: Recite that 1 page in your prayers all day long.

There are certain Surahs that you know like the back of
your hand, like Surat AlFatiha, Qul Huwal Allahu Ahad, for
instance. Why do you know them so well? Cause you read
them, like, ALL THE TIME in Salah.

If you use this technique I'm talking about here, these new
Quran pages can become just as strong, in sha Allah.

With best wishes to see you succeed at the highest level!
- Muhammad Alshareef
