Little tips on memorizing Qur’an

For the millionth time, I want to say how I am grateful to be a Muslim. For me, living under the guidance of Allah through Qur’an is just incomparable. Woe on me if I don’t follow Allah’s guidance.

Lately, alhamdulillah, Allah has made me really enjoying memorizing Qur’an, and alhamdulillah, He made it easy for me, as He promised. So I would to tell the secret =)

I think, the best way to memorize Qur’an, for the non-arabic speaker like us, is to memorize it along with reading its tafsir. The best one that I’ve used is tafsir fi dzilalil Qur’an by Sayyid Quthub. When we’re memorizing Qur’an along with reading its tafsir, it will not only make us understand word-by-word of what we’re memorizing, but we’ll also be able to dive into the beauty of Allah’s words and understand His great-beautiful message.

Not a long ago, I was kind of complaining in my heart, why is it so difficult to memorize Qur’an. Am I too old? That was what I think; but then I came across one ayat in the Qur’an, several times, which says that Allah has made it easy to memorize Qur’an (for example, look Surah Al-Qamar (54) ayat 17, 22, 32 and 40). And then, Alhamdulillah, Allah showed me the way.

I am wholeheartedly encourage all us to deepen our interaction with Qur’an. Insyaallah, we’ll not only succeed in this dunya, but more importantly also in the akhirah. Insyaallah, Allah will loves and always guide us even more.

Note: bagi yang tidak punya tafsir fi dzilalil Qur’an, you can download it here.

  1. Rasulullah SAW begin his hifzh in the age of 40. So it’s never too late insya Allah 🙂

    In addition to Tafsir FZQ, you can listen to tafsir lectures by Nouman Ali Khan (you can get it here a very inspiring Qur’an teacher from USA. he explains the Qur’an eloquently 🙂

  2. saya sudah banyak download surat2 dari tafsir fi zilalil quran sth baca postingan ini. tadi tiba2 saya teringat untuk mencari tau apakah buku ini adalah buku rekomendasi, dalam artian bahwa penafsirannya itu benar.saya ketemu link di youtube yang membuat saya jadi ragu terhadap buku ini. karena kita tau, belajar islam itu tidak mudah, tidak boleh dipikirkan sendiri, harus belajar bersama orang yang memiliki ilmu agama yang dalam atau dari buku yang benar2 direkomendasikan oleh orang2 berilmu tersebut. bagaimana mnrt ruli dg video ini? apakah buku tafsir fi zilalil quran ini memang bagus? link video

    • Assalamualaikum,,

      Mba Rere (?), terima kasih atas tanggapannya. I just watched the video; and I agree to the Ustadz that we should not follow his tafsir (or book) wherever deviation from Aqidah Islam is found. Ustadz mentioned that previous ‘ulama has corrected the tafsir (or the book). I think if we find something inconsistent with aqidah islam in this tafsir (or book) obviously we shouldn’t follow it. So far, I just read tafsir juz 27-29 plus al-imran; I can’t find anything inconsistent with aqidah Islam. I read some part of Tafsir Ibnu Katsir also previously, but I prefer the way Sayyid Qutb explain the Qur’an. One book worth reading from Sayyid Qutb, I think is Ma’allim fit Thariq. In this book, we can clearly see his pure concept and strong believe in ‘aqidah islam. I can email you the ebook if you want. As for closing, if you’re more comfortable with reading Tafsir Ibnu Katsir, then go ahead. Insyaallah reading both Tafsir will ease us memorizing Qur’an. Semoga Allah selalu membimbing dan memudahkan kita menghapal Al-Qur’an. Salam,,Rully.
