10 Practical Tips for Surah Ar-Rahman  Memorization

Let’s learn about these effective tips on this unique and enjoyable journey

1. Use one copy of Mushaf while memorizing

A person memorizes using certain senses that bring information into the mind. The more you enter information using more senses, the stronger the memorization becomes, and sight is one of the important senses in memorization. 

Therefore, it is necessary to ensure the form in which it is memorized; until he gets used to looking at it, for example, when you memorize Surah Ar-Rahman, your eyes become accustomed to seeing the same format of the verses in the same form, and this helps you memorize in an easier and faster way to remember. Keep one drawing of the Quran that you memorize or read from.

2. Listen to the surah repeatedly from a skilled Sheikh

Listening to the surah from a proficient sheikh, such as Sheikh Al-Hussary, is considered one of the most effective means of memorization. 

It stimulates the auditory memory, which helps strengthen the memory for memorization, especially for listening to a proficient recitation that follows the rules of Tajweed, which deepens the meanings and verses of the Quran for the memorizer, therefore helping to memorize.

3. Read the entire surah (the first time)

Read the entire surah to get to know all the verses, understand the topics in the surah, and read it correctly while following all the required Tajweed rules, which helps to memorize clearly and accurately and to form the messages to be applied.

4. Understanding the meanings of the verses

Understanding the surah well by reading the meanings of the verses and interpreting the verses from the easy interpretation book (Tafseer Muyassar), as it explains what the verses are about and the meanings they guide to, helps to greatly deepen the connection with the Quranic verses, which helps speed up memorization in a precise manner.

And focusing on the sequence and arrangement of the verses while understanding them also helps. It helps you memorize and retain it well in your memory, which makes reciting and recalling verses from memory easy. Understanding verses is also a good technique to memorize quran surah fast.

5. Using Acronym (the beginning of the words of Ayahs)

Memorizing the first words of each verse, along with the sequence and order of the verses, helps to make memorization smoother, especially when there is repetition in verse throughout the entire surah, such as ( فَبِأَيِّ آلاءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ). 

So we memorize the beginning of every verse that comes after it, and it is easy to link the verses clearly and smoothly and memorize the verses perfectly so that the memorizer will not forget Ayahs.

Note: Almuhammadi Academy follows the acronym method in their “Hifz classes for adults” for fast learning and proper understanding.

6. Memorizing by grouping and meaning

Memorizing verses in groups and not individually helps in memorizing correctly, especially when this group consists of verses about a specific common topic, which works to deepen the meanings of the verses and memorize them firmly in the memory.

Creating links between verses that confirm the same meaning facilitates memorization in memory and recalling them by heart without forgetting.

7. Linking similar verses for fast memorization

There are similar verses in the surah, so this helps in linking the next verse with it and memorizing it faster and easier.

The verse that precedes a similar verse can be linked to the first word or two of the verse to easily memorize and recall the verses from the memory during reciting by the heart. For example,

      (وَالْحَبُّ ذُو الْعَصْفِ وَالرَّيْحَانُ) ( فَبِأَيِّ آلاءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ)  –  (وَخَلَقَ الْجَانَّ مِن مَّارِجٍ مِّن نَّارٍ) (فَبِأَيِّ آلاءِ رَبِّكُمَا)

8. Read the verses in a clear and audible voice

Reciting the verses aloud is one of the best means and methods for quick memorization of the Surah, where the memorizer can perform it by reciting the surah in a voice, activates the sense of hearing by reciting the Surah in a clear, audible voice, and also the sense of sight in looking at Mushaf which helps stimulate memory.

In addition, reading the verses out loud without mistakes aids in deepening the Quranic messages and meanings that are to be understood. Each of these steps aims to memorize and deeply understand the verse.

9. Repeat the entire verses in one session

Repeating reading the entire surah in one session is much better than dividing and reading it over several separate sessions, which helps the mind to relate the verses to each other and their sequence in memory, and the clarity of the topics and the main issue of the surah, all of which prove to memorize the surah well in memory.

Repetition is also one of the keys of Hifz that increases activity in the brain by connecting the nerve cells in the brain. Thus, learning becomes faster and memory retains more information.

10. Use an aid technique for easy memorization

Using one of the best quran memorization methods and strategies that help memorize quickly, such as dividing the memorization into several sessions and repeating it several times, or memorizing from the bottom to the top of the page and vice versa in reviewing.

Choose one of the methods that suits your skill and abilities and will make memorization easier and more flexible.
