Shaykh Abdullah Bukhari answers a very important question in relation to how the Qur’ān should be memorised. A much needed reminder for us all.
The question – may Allāh bless you – is concerning how to memorise and review the Qur’ān?
Firstly, memorise the Qur’ān from a teacher who is proficient, a sincere advisor and Sunnī (firm upon the Sunnah). Memorising the Qur’ān is just like the other sciences and branches from the branches of studying (talab al-‘ilm). You are to read (the Qur’ān) to a man upon the Sunnah, who is knowledgeable, has memorised, good and precise (in what he teaches).
