Quran Hafiza Maariya from Luton

Maariya Aslam, from Luton UK, who memorized Quran at the age of 7 and now at the age of 8 she is qualified to teach Quran to others. She is awarded an certificate to teach the Holy Book to others.

Maria Aslam, began memorizing the holy book from the age of 5, she memorized Surah Yasin in a charity challenge in order to raise money for Syria. It was then her parents wanted her to become Hafiz-e-Quran and with in 2 years she memorized the whole Quran at the age of 7.

Her mother helped her to achieve this goal, follow a strict timetable where Maariya would study 5 hours a day, a session before school where she would learn something new, a session after school where she would read what she had learnt and another session after dinner for revision.

People ask me what method I used to memorize the Quran.

I’ll answer this in two parts. The first addresses memorization. The second addresses review:
Teachers in al-Azhar used to say to me, “whoever memorizes five verses, rarely forgets them.”

So, when memorizing, start with five verses. I had a classmate who memorized four pages a day. Our teacher scolded him saying, “Who memorized everything in a day, forgets it all in one night!”

I learned how to review the Quran from Sh. Ahmed from Senegal: Use dhikr beads and read the five verses you memorized 100 times without making any mistakes, review the Quran at least once a year with a teacher, and review it during your night prayers.

“Praying at night is the zakat you owe as thankfulness for what God blessed you to memorize!”

If you know more than one way of reading, then review a different reading yearly, also. He would always remind me to make sure the knowledge was acquired for the right reasons. “If there is good in your heart, Allah will bless you to live what you’ve learned!”

Note: I use the tasbīh when memorizing lines of poetry, mutūn – primary texts, hadīth, poetry or any important quotes I wanted to remember reading each 100 times.

These methods will strengthen your memory and prepare you when you need to strengthen you faith. Imam Shafi said that memorized knowledge is a friend when you are alone.
