Hifdh Program

 

Hifdh Programme

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said: “The Messenger of Allah said: “…Whoever follows a path in pursuit of knowledge, Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise. No people gather in one of houses of Allah, reciting the Book of Allah and teaching it to one another, but the angels will surround them, tranquility will descend upon them, mercy will envelop them and Allah will mention them to those who are with Him. And whoever is hindered because of his bad deeds, his lineage will be of no avail to him.” 
(Sunan Ibn e Majah, Book of Sunnah, Hadith no 225)

“And we have made the Qur’an easy for remembrance (and understanding),
so there is one that will receive admonition?”
[Qur’an 54:22]

Quran Memorisation Guidelines

 

1: Intention

At AHS we want our children to understand the most crucial ingredient when it comes to memorising the Quran. Their sole purpose for embarking on this journey should be to attain the pleasure of Allah, draw closer to Him, and attain the great rewards He has promised for the haafizah, because this is an act of worship. The children will be taught about the importance of continuously renewing and guarding their intention throughout the entire journey Insha’Allah by focussing on these two questions:

  • Why am I memorising
  • What do I hope to gain?

2.Setting strategic and long term goals

The children will learn about the importance of setting short and long term goals, which will help them organise as well as give them a sense of accountability as they work towards deadlines.

 3.Dua

Dua is the most powerful tool to achieving your goal as Allaah is sure to answer!

And your Lord said: “Invoke Me, I will respond to your (invocation). [Ghafir:60] 

Allaah has promised to help you reach your goals. So ask and trust in Him!

And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish his purpose. [At-Talaq:3]

The children will be encouraged to continuously ask Allah to make their journey easy and to help them achieve their goals.

4.Consistency

Children will be taught that consistency is the key to success this will help them not only with their hifdh but in all areas of life insha’Allah. Following strategies will help the children to be consistent:

  • Use the same mushaf(copy of Quran) every day
  • Memorise/practice at the same time every day.
  • Memorise the same amount every day. 
  • Memorise every day!

5.Method

The children will be assessed and taught by selecting a method of recitation that will work best for their learning style e:g:

  • Ayah by ayah method: each ayah is memorised individually while connecting the previous one.
  • Listening and repeating method: by listening and repeating the entire portion intended to memorise
  1. Review

Reviewing and assessing their learning is the most important aspect of memorisation. The children will   review the Ayah’s they have learnt daily by:

  • Review the last 5 lessons before starting the new lesson.
  • During the day, recite new lessons in sunnah prayers
