Sometimes some people forget to memorize the Quran readings.
But there are several ways that can be done by the memorizers of the Qur’an in order to continue to remember its memorization, one of which is to make it only for Allah SWT.
here are five steps that can be taken in order to keep in mind the Recital:
- Sincerity of intent only to Allah SWT
وَمَا أُمِرُوا إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ مُخْلِصِينَ لَهُ الدِّينَ حُنَفَاءَ وَيُقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُوا الزَّكَاةَ ۚ وَذَٰلِكَ دِينُ الْقَيِّمَةِ
“Whereas they are commanded to worship Allah, strictly obeying Him, because of his religion, and that they should perform the prayer and pay the zakat, and that is the right religion.” (QS Al Bayyinah 5).
From Amirul Mukminin Abu Hafsh Umar bin Khattab, he said, ‘I heard the Prophet PBUH say:
إِنَّمَا الأَعْمَالُ بِالنِّيَّاتِ، وَإِنَّمَا لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مَا نَوَى، فَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ إِلَِى اللهِ وَرَسُوْلِهِ فَهِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى اللهِ وَرَسُوْلِهِ، وَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ لِدُنْيَا يُصِيْبُهَا، أَوْ امْرَأَةٍ يَنْكِحُهَا، فَهِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى مَا هَاجَرَ إِلَيْهِ
“It depends only on his intentions. And each of those will only be rewarded based on what he intends. Whoever has migrated to Allah and His Messenger, he has moved to Allah and His Messenger. But whoever moves to the world or a woman whom he wants to marry, then he migrates to what he intends.” (Bukhari and Muslim).
- Choose a friend who always memorizes the Qur’an.
Good and true friendships are those who help each other and each other is bound to the Qur’an. They will not abandon or forget the Qur’an.
For that the memorization of the Qur’an must be together with a friend who has high motivation to memorize, understand and learn it, they will spend time, energy and money for the Qur’an.
In addition to getting a great reward, they are also not only friends in the world but also in the Hereafter.
الْأَخِلَّاءُ يَوْمَئِذٍ بَعْضُهُمْ لِبَعْضٍ عَدُوٌّ إِلَّا الْمُتَّقِينَ
“The close friends of that day were some enemies to some others except those who feared.” (QS Az Zukhruf 67). The Prophet (peace be upon him) said in his hadith as follows:
المرء على دين خليله فلينظر أحدكم من يخالل
“A person’s religion is in accordance with the religion of his close friend. Let you see who is his close friend.” (HR Abu Daud dan Tirmidzi)
