Assalamalaikum ,

I hope everyone is fine. I must first say jazakallah for answering all my inquires .I need help once again. Actually I took an exam and my results came back and my parents always appreciate my results , however I know very well I can do much better . But for some reason whenever I sit down to study my mind is fully not in the books. I try as hard as I can but still it is no help. Also I forget things so quickly. Even after studying I still won't be able to remember what I learned.

I really do need help because this I want to achieve my goal which is ver high marks . To be honest I really don't have confidence in myself. I don't know why ? How can I change this. Please tell me a dua so I can my focus and have confidence. Also I must tell you guys something else. My mom had a dream that she wanted me to fulfill. She wanted me to become a Quran hafiz. I had memorized Quran 30-Quran 5. However to be honest because of my studies I wasn't able to keep up and I forgot Quran 30.

I know it is a major sin and I am trying my best to hear the Quran and memorize the Quran. I know Allah(swt) is unhappy with me because afterall this life is an exam and to pass this exam we must have full faith in Islam. I need some advice please if you guys could tell me any duas I want to fulfill my mothers dream and and Achieve my goal. May Allah(swt) gives you guys happiness.

Jazakallah. Salam,

Memona.

  1. Salam Dear memona,

    If you want to memorize the holly quran, a teacher will be a very valuable help
    - to correct your tajweed
    - to motivate you to learn regularly

    Well why don't you concentrate on your studies for now and once you are finished take a year or two and enroll in a hafiz course, or if you feel up to it every evening after school/college but that is if you can manage of course

    In the mean time carry on praying 5 times a day and read some quran lets say after fajr and maghrib

    It is nice to see young people who espect their parents.

    • Additionally, there is a dua to make things easy:

      Allahumma la sahla illa ma Ja'altahu sahla. Wa anta Taj'alul hizna iza Shi'ta sahla
      (O Allah, there is no ease except what you have made easy. And you make a grief easy if you will so)

      A tip for memorization of Quraan is to memorize with understanding. Make use of the translations if you do not know Arabic.

      Wassalamualaikum

  2. Asalamu Alaikum

    Dear sister masha Allah if you want to memorize the holly QURAN may ALLAH (SWT) make you easy to memorize it. to be honesty as you pray 5 times a day try to add praying sunnah at the night time and try to listen the holly QURAN as much as you can, if you listen music stop it because it dry to your heart subhana lah and ask ALLAH (swt) to make it easy for you and say this dua insha Allah every thing will be easy for

    للَّهُمَّ انْفَعْنِي بِمَا عَلَّمْـتَنِي وَ عَلِّمْنِي مَا يَنْفَعُنِي

    .اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ فَهْمَ النَّ بِيِّينَ وَ حِفْظَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ الْمُقَرَّبِينَ

    اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ لِسَانِي عَامِرًا بِذِكْرِكَ وَ قَلْبِي بِخَشْيَتِك. .

    َ.إِنَّكَ عَلَى مَا تَشَاءُ قَدِيرٌ وَ أَنْتَ حَسْـبُنَا اللَّهُ وَ نِعْمَ الْوَكِيلُ
    meaning

    Oh Allah! Make useful for me what you have taught me and teach me knowledge that will be useful to me.

    Oh Allah! I ask you for the understanding of the prophets and the memory of the messengers, and those nearest to you.

    Oh Allah! Make my tongue full of your remembrance and my heart with consciousness of you.

    Oh Allah! You do whatever you wish, and you are my availer and protector and best of aid.

  3. There is no specific dua to increase and sharpen memory .The only way to increase memory is abstaining from all sorts of sin.

    Its you who have to gain confidence in yourself.There is famous dua in surah taha from verse 25-28which musa(a.s) said while he was heading to give dawah to pharoah along with her brother.Read that before commencement of any task.Inshallahut taala
