Memorizing the Quran is a journey like no other. It tests your willpower, your reliance and trust in Allah, your standards, and your determination. It is a journey that will not only change your life, but will change your heart if you let it. The Quran is a huge blessing and responsibility. Those who strive to memorize it will be put through tests and trials in order to be taught the lessons that Allah is teaching, for although we have Quran teachers, Allah is the One who truly teaches us through the Quran.
When you decide to embark on any journey that will change your life for the better, bring you closer to Allah and His words, help you to leave sins, identify and improve your faults and weaknesses, accumulate good deeds, and hopefully help you enter Jannah, Shaytan freaks out and does everything he can to prevent you from taking action. He will do whatever it takes to mess you up, demotivate you, make you feel you’re not good enough or that you can’t accomplish your goals, and it will be a constant struggle. Everyone packs things that they need before going on a journey, and most people never forget to pack what they will need most.
Here are things that you cannot do without as you strive to memorize the Book of Allah. While you are fighting yourself and fighting Shaytan, if you can stay strong and use the below points, the Quran is above any of these obstacles and will be the greatest thing you’ve ever had in your life.
